This was posted on Twitter by Wil Wheaton on June 18th:
I want Hogwarts to be real SO MUCH. Is my owl here, yet?
— Wil Wheaton (@wilw) June 19, 2014
On June 20th, I received an order for a Hogwarts letter package for him. Someone close to him must want to help make his dream a reality. Today, July 29th, is his birthday. I wonder if it was ordered as a gift?
Think there's even a remote possibility that our letter could make it onto his new TV show, "The Wil Wheaton Project"?

I am SO excited to share this news with you all! I recently contacted the band, Modern English, through their official web site at http://modernenglish.me/ to ask permission to use their song, "Ink and Paper" as background music in a radio ad for Legendary Letters. The webmaster, Kraig, forwarded my email to them, and then wrote back that I was good to go. Robbie Grey had said, "No problem"! I am as giddy as a school girl right now bouncing off the walls that they responded! My husband and my official love song is "Melt with You" by them. Go check them out! They will be touring Europe and the UK soon.

Our local downtown business association (Fairfield Main Street Association) posted pictures of Legendary Letters on their Facebook page today. We recently got new exterior paint and hope it helps revitalize downtown Fairfield, CA a bit. Here is the link to their posting:

It's with a very heavy heart that we report that Stacy's father passed away today after a month long battle with liver and pancreatic cancer. The store will be closed for a week while she helps her mother make the funeral arrangements and takes time to grieve with her family. Thank you for your patience and understanding. A link to the obituary is below for friends and family wanting to attend the service:

Happy New Year everyone! I can't believe it is going to be 2014 in just a couple days. After helping Santa Claus out at the North Pole, I decided to take some time and modernize our shop.
We've streamlined our order forms so that they will email you automatically with the info you submitted. We're also able to download that info directly into excel where it will be merged onto the personalized item you ordered. In this way it should cut down on errors and typos since we are not retyping your info from the order form -- it goes directly onto the item with no middle man. It should make things run more smoothly here.*
We have decided to make one design change on any paper items from Hogwarts, Beauxbatons, or Durmstrang. Before now the font on the envelope was different for the book and movie versions of the letter. Now we are going to use the movie version envelope typeface for all school letter orders. The old typeface is on the left. The new typeface is on the right. To order one of our wizarding school letters, just click here. Prices range from $7.50-$25 for different packages.
*Update: Please be very careful when entering info onto the order form now as we can no longer make edits. Please double check spelling, punctuation, spacing, and capitalization before clicking the submit button.

Update: It's 12-29-13 and we've decided to re-open a bit early (instead of waiting until January 2nd). Our turnaround time is still about 1 week though.
Happy Holidays! Our shop has entered vacation mode as Elf Stacy has had to go to the North Pole to help Santa Claus. We will re-open after Christmas.
She will still be responding to emails and the one item available for purchase up until December 23rd, is our digital file of Santa and Reindeer Rooftop Sound Effects since that can be emailed to customers.
Please visit again soon!

Hi everyone! The holiday season is already upon us so I thought it would be a good time to post ordering deadlines. For international customers, to be sure your item arrives in plenty of time, we recommend ordering by November 12th.
For customers in the United States, we recommend you order by:
December 3rd with regular first class mail
December 10th with Priority mail
December 14th with Express mail
Turnaround time before we can put your item(s) in the mail is usually 1 week for paper items and 2 weeks for 3D items and invitations during the holidays. Please order as soon as you can so you won't have to worry.
*Remember: Elf Stacy must travel back to the North Pole each year to help Santa, so orders that come in after December 15th can not be processed until after the New Year. All orders needed for Christmas must come in before December 15th.

Yesterday I had the great honor of being contacted by Hendrik Wynands (the head of set construction on the original 1972 Willy Wonka movie) to ask me what a real golden ticket from the set might be worth. According to my research, it would sell for about $25,000! Hendrik says it may come in handy when sending his grandchildren to college.
