Christine did an amazing job on the invitations. Both the graphic design and the text itself set the stage for the magical night ahead. It was delightful to personally drop off invitations to folks to firsthand see (or to later hear stories of) the amusing squeals people make when they realize what they’re holding.
We are pleased to inform you that you have been invited to attend our secret Advanced Potions Class at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Wands will be provided. There is no specific dress code, but records show that students perform better when wearing appropriate attire: capes, robes, dress robes, bath robes, pointed hats with stars, pointed dunce caps, general wild and outlandish clothing, house colors, etc.
Students shall be required to report to the Enigma Reception Chamber, the muggle entrance of which is located at XXXXXXXXXXXX.
Arrive by any convenient method, including but not limited to: broomstick, port key, (flying) muggle car or motorcycle (with sidecar), thestrals, steam train, apparating, or another method except floo powder, as the Floo Network is being closely monitored by the Ministry of Magic (not because the school has no chimney).
We very much look forward to receiving you as part of Hogwarts heritage. Please RSVP at your earliest convenience via Owl Post, iMessage, or Tweets.
A magical experience consisting of cocktail potions, fun drinks, and yummy snacks.
Of course they got the Hogwarts seal.
We had a pretty good assembly line going. Print invite pairs and envelopes. Split them apart on the rotary slicer and cut the envelope outlines. Fold everything. Seal them three at a time.
They definitely set the stage for people to arrive with magic in their hearts, and not fully knowing what to expect, but expecting something amazing and fun. Quite a few folks even arrived in costume!
