Item details



cork, wax, paper, twine, copper charm, glass bottle

Imagine receiving this message in a bottle miniature letter sealed with a bit of red wax in a corked glass bottle!

I type out your text using a vintage typewriter. It can be a love note, inside joke, a bit of a poem, secret communique, a sweet nothing (or a dirty one. I don't judge and I've seen it all!). You can even customize the wax seal with a single letter. The final touch is a key hand stamped with a custom monogram tied to your bottle.

Send this directly to your recipient for a fun mail surprise! Your message is wrapped like gift in a cotton draw string bag and placed in a little box for a truly special mail experience. No receipt is included, just your message.

Because I type out the messages myself, and am only human, there may be some "x"'s over mistakes, but these add to the handmade and vintage quality of the letter.

- little letter is 2" x 4-6"
- glass bottle with cork just under 3"
- cotton draw string bag
- packaged in a twine tied kraft box for gifting
- mailed in a padded envelope

1. LETTER: Enter your letter text on this page, right above the "Add to Cart" button.
2. KEY & WAX SEAL: Please note the 2-3 letter monogram for key and 1 letter for wax seal in the "Note to Seller" at checkout. For example, XO for key, A for wax. I have a "+" and "&" symbol stamp.
3. SHIPPING: Please include the recipients address as the ship to address at checkout. Not your address, unless you are shipping to yourself, which is a-ok!

Please allow for 3-5 business days to make your letter. If you need the package to arrive by a certain date let me know and I'll do my best to have it arrive right on time. Please allow for making and mailing time. If you're on a tight timeline, I highly recommend priority mail.
First class mail - 3-5 business days

Sorry! But for right now I only have ten letters A, C, D, E, J, K, L, M, R, S. I'm planning on making the other letters available as PDF downloads. Always happy to hear you'd like a kit, but not sure when I'll have them available.

You can track your package under "Purchases and Reviews". To the right of the item purchased click "Track Package". It may take a day for your package to be scanned into the system after postage is purchased. After delivering your package to the post office your package is now in the hands of USPS. I'll do my best to help you locate your package. If it seems it has been lost in the mail I'll confirm your mailing address and submit a Search Request with USPS-
Yes, I do sell wholesale. You are welcome to buy through Etsy Wholesale or contact me at miniaturerhino [at] gmail [dot] com for a line sheet.
I'm happy to gift wrap and handwrite a gift message on a cute postcard. At checkout you have the option to add gift wrap ($4) and leave a gift message. I carefully wrap your gift in indigo blue tissue paper tied up with red and white twine. Your gift note is then tucked into the twine. It's ready for gifting when you receive it or will impress your recipient if you send directly to them.
Standard mail is First class mail. For faster delivery order Priority Mail.
- First-Class Mail (3-5 business days) order by Dec. 18.
- Priority Mail (2-3 business days) order by Dec. 19
I can't guarantee delivery once the package is in the hands of USPS but ordering by these dates is the best bet for getting your package on time.
