For those of you shopping for a Harry Potter fan, you may be wondering "What is a Prefect?".

How It's Made
The letter itself is handwritten by using antique calligraphy pens and dipped ink using the main house color, Gryffindor red. 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 onto this paper to prevent bleeding and smudging. The Pin is a re-designed version of the House Crest with the word "Prefect" printed instead of the house name. This crest is printed onto Cardstock, then laminated and glued to a backing pin. These may not be as professional as the legit metal pins you see around various shopping platforms, but it is still a fun way to showcase your house pride! :D All of this is bundled into a handwritten envelope, then wax sealed with a beautiful colored wax and the House Crest.
