Changes for 2014!

Posted by Stacy Rose on December 29, 2013 at 4:50 PM Comments comments (0)

  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.

Shop is in Vacation Mode

Posted by Stacy Rose on December 5, 2013 at 9:40 PM Comments comments (0)

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! :)

Christmas Ordering Deadlines

Posted by Stacy Rose on November 1, 2013 at 8:50 PM Comments comments (0)

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. :)

Hendrik Wynands

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. ;)

Hot Hot Weather!

6/10/13 EDIT: The heatwave has passed for now so we're giving away a set of Gryffindor wax seals on our Facebook page today. Please go comment on Facebook if you'd like to win them. Go to: http://facebooks.com/elfstacy

Hi everyone! We are about to experience some really extreme heat here in CA this weekend, and I just want to give out a reminder that our items with wax seals may re-melt in transit. If that happens and it sticks to the bubble mailer, the best thing to do is gently rip the mailer down the back where it isn't stuck to release the contents and then very carefully peel the wax seal away. If you are able to postpone your order until cooler weather that works too. :)

Paris Themmen & Julie Dawn Cole

Posted by Stacy Rose on September 26, 2012 at 10:35 PM Comments comments (0)

We met Paris Themmen (Mike TeeVee) and Julie Dawn Cole (Veruca Salt) from the original Willy Wonka movie today as they browsed our booth at the Candy Festival (held at Jelly Belly in Fairfield, CA). They said we were the first they'd seen to recreate the Wonka Contract & Lickable Wallpaper, and said my golden ticket replica was the best they'd seen.  Angel Cardenas from Good Day Sacramento used our Wonka Bar prop and Golden Ticket for many of the TV segments with them, and our son, Hunter (dressed as an Oompa Loompa), got to sing and dance with them on TV (see the clip in our videos section). What an exciting day!

Wonka Edible Tea Cups, Gobstoppers, and Candy Bars

Posted by Stacy Rose on August 31, 2012 at 4:25 PM Comments comments (7)

For my son's Wonka themed birthday, I wanted to have the candy from the original movie, but couldn't find any good advice online as to how to make them. I found an original 1971 Wonka candy bar mold on eBay that was a cereal promotion back when the movie first came out. It was a godsend! The mold has one tray for small versions of the regular bar, the Scrumdiddlyumptious Bar, a mini bar, and a circular one maybe for a mini Fudgemallow? I got Wiltons meltable chocolates and it was fairly easy to mold them (remember to tap the tray against the countertop a few times to get out the bubbles). I then got aluminum foil from the Dollar Store (it's thinner like real candy foil) and printed out my own wrappers.

I wanted to have a yellow edible tea cup like the one Willy Wonka takes a bite out of and found two tea cup and saucer candy molds on Amazon.com. I used the cup from one and the saucer from the other (which looked more flower-like). I poured the yellow candy metls into the mold and swished it all around so it just coated the mold and put that in the freezer. I then put one more layer on just to make it really solid.

I put everlasting gobstoppers inside the cups, wrapped them in cellophane and tied them with a tag that said "You can even eat the dishes". To make the gobstoppers, I dipped mini marshmallows into red, green, blue, and yellow candy melts. After they were set I took a plain mini marshmallow and attached 6 of the coated ones to it with a dab of melted chocolate. I had wanted to stuff the cups with a little edible grass like you find at Easter too, but sadly couldn't find any in July. Hope you have fun making your own!

The gift tag is available as a digital file in our web store.

We are very honored to report that a representative for Denise Nickerson (Violet from the 1971 Willy Wonka movie) has bulk ordered our golden tickets. They will be offered on Ebay soon with her autograph. Neato!

Wonka Cream Sign

Posted by Stacy Rose on July 3, 2012 at 5:10 PM Comments comments (1)

I just typed up the sign about all the different creams from the original Willy Wonka movie and thought I'd offer it in the web store as well. I have a large format printer and printed it at 13 x 13, but as a .pdf you can fit it to any size page you like.
