Letter Wording

Dear Mr./Ms. (Your Recipients Last Here),

Congratulations and welcome to Gryffindor House! As the Sorting Hat says, "You might belong in Gryffindor, Where dwell the brave at heart, Their daring, nerve and chivalry Set Gryffindors apart." We are also kind, intelligent, and very trustworthy. Our emblem is the lion, the bravest of all creatures, and we wear the colors of our house proudly: Red & Gold.

You were selected for Gryffindor because you are truly brave at heart, and we pride ourselves in never losing our sense of adventure. You must trust yourself and believe that you are capable of many things, but keep in mind that your fellow classmates from other houses may not always appreciate your honesty and bluntness.

Remember to always keep a playful disposition, choose honesty and intelligence, and always stand up for others and yourself. Never forget that sometimes it's alright to be stubborn. I have no doubt that you will exceed our expectations of you, and that you will be a shining example for Gryffindors everywhere. Congratulations!

Yours Sincerely,

Minerva McGonagall

How It's Made

The letter itself is handwritten by using antique calligraphy pens and dipped ink using the house colors, Red & Gold. You don't see this kind of art that much anymore! Each letter is personalized with the name of your recipient, then printed onto a parchment/aged paper. I do not write directly on to this paper to prevent bleeding and smudging. The bookmark & info card was designed by us and printed onto premium cardstock parchment paper. All of this is bundled into a handwritten envelope, then wax sealed with a beautiful yellow colored wax and the Gryffindor Crest.
