Design Help...Harry Potter tees with quotes HELP

Making tee shirts for our first exciting trip to Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I would greatly like some design help. I have quotes for the four houses that I would like to put on the back. (I already have the pic for the front) The shirts are the colors of the houses and I dont just want a big white square with words in it. So I was wondering if any of you talented designers could come up with some idea to put these quotes on the shirts.

These are the quotes I was going to use. I can use photshop a little so I can add the quotation to a blank graphic if that is what you come up with or you can design with the words.

"You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart"
—The Sorting Hat

"You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true,
And unafraid of toil"
—The Sorting Hat

"Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind."
—The Sorting Hat

"Or perhaps in Slytherin,
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folk use any means,
To achieve their ends."
—The Sorting Hat

Or does anyone have ideas how to add the guotations without it just being a big white square with words.

I have 3 possible ideas


1) use a light transfer. The background does not show on that

2) cut out the letters

3) add a frame around the words so it would look a bit more finished even with the white

I can do a diamond background and do the words on top in a contrasting color.

The diamond backgrounds could be the color of the houses.

It's rough where you already have the colors for the shirts. How many shirts are we talking about?

So, green, red, purple and yellow shirts? or black? Shirt colors would help.

That sounds cool. We have blue (Ravenclaw), yellow (Hufflepuff), green (Slytherin) and gold (grifyndor) tees.

FYI for anyone who is a big potter fan like us. Pottermore.com is where you can find out what house you would be in. The website is made by JK Rowling. It is a funs site. It is getting us all excited for our first trip to Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Why couldn't you do a texture background or even a faded HP background with a border or done in some sort of shape...easy to cut around. JMO

Or here is an option, but I won't do the other houses unless you like this one better.
