The Gaff Factory - A comprehensive dry-mounting tutorial

Craig Matsuoka

The Gaff Factory - A comprehensive dry-mounting tutorial by Craig MatsuokaMaking dry-mounted gaffs just got a whole lot easier!

This new 80 page ebook introduces you to the wonders of dry mounting tissue (a.k.a. "DMT"). What's DMT? It's an adhesive that lets you make gaffs that look, feel, and snap like a normal card. If all you've ever known are rubber cement, sprays, and glue sticks, then you've been missing out big-time. This book will open your eyes.

On the other hand, perhaps you heard of DMT, but never bothered to try it because the equipment costs turned you off. Or maybe you gave up on it after getting horrible results with a clothes iron. Well, it's...

ESP Signs

Jens O. Jahn

ESP Signs by Jens O. JahnYou get professionally designed ESP symbols:
  • Circle
  • Cross
  • Wave
  • Square
  • Star (in two sizes)
One star version is geometrically the same size as the other symbols. Due to its shape it looks a bit smaller than the other symbols. The second star design is 20% larger to better match the overal appearance of the other symbols.

The files are vector files (SVG format). This means you can blow them up as much as you want without loosing resolution - great for jumbo or giant cards. Each symbol is available in 10 color background combinations. They are:

  • black on white background
  • blue on...

Corner Rounder 1/8" (3 mm)

Lybrary.com

Corner Rounder 1/8" (3 mm) by Lybrary.comThis is a rugged heavy duty hand-held corner rounder that produces corners with a radius of 1/8" (3 mm) - the perfect rounding for playing cards as well as other cards like plastic ID cards, badges or business cards. The best part of it is that it can cut up to five playing cards at the same time. This significantly cuts down your work if you are making lots of cards.

It is also the ideal tool to round corners for cards that have been shortened, as for the preparation of a Svengali deck or a simple short card, or cards that have been cut conically - so called stripper decks. Whenever you...

KardKutter: card cutter for poker sized cards

Lybrary.com

KardKutter: card cutter for poker sized cards by Lybrary.comThis is the perfect playing card cutter. It cuts 9 poker sized cards, size 88 mm x 63 mm, from an A4 or letter sized sheet (actually it can handle sheets up to 300 mm x 300 mm). It works perfectly with our playing card cardboard. All cuts are burr free and accurate to 0.15 mm. There is no way you can achieve that accuracy repeatedly with a straight edge and box cutter. Even your standard guillotine or roller based cutters cannot achieve the accuracy and consistency this cutter provides effortlessly. All you do is crank the handle.

I have tested several ways to cut cards. This is by far the best and most accurate...

I have tried and tested many other ways to coat playing cards but none even comes close to this coating. This is real playing card coating. Anything else is a bad substitute.

This coating is a chemical and...

Squeeze

Troels Holm & Tommy Wonder

Squeeze by Troels Holm & Tommy WonderSqueeze is a wonderful effect created by Tommy Wonder. A regular deck of cards is 'squeezed' into a miniture case. It is an incredibly visual effect and was published in the first volume of the Books Of Wonder on page 149.

The biggest problem with this effect is to prepare and build the props. In order to remove the time consuming design work Troels Holm has created the necessary drawings. These sheets make it easy for you to produce all the special items needed for this trick. However, keep in mind that even with these PDFs there is still a significant amount of work left to build all props and prepare...
