Corner Rounder: 1/8" (3 mm), 3/16" (5 mm), 5/16" (8 mm) by Lybrary.comThis is a multi-use rugged manual corner rounder that produces round corners in three sizes:
  • 3 mm (1/8")
  • 5 mm (3/16")
  • 8 mm (5/16")
3 mm is ideal for perfectly rounding corners for playing cards, as well as other cards like ID cards, badges and business 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 need to correct the corner rounding this tool will help you.

The 5 mm rounding is great for corner shorts....

I Ching Oracle Divination Cards by Michael DanielsThe I Ching Oracle Divination Cards have been designed as an alternative to more traditional ways of consulting the I Ching (e.g., those using coins or sticks).

ESP Signs by Jens O. JahnYou get professionally designed ESP symbols:
  • Circle
  • Cross
  • Wave
  • Square

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

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...

KardKoating: playing card coating by Lybrary.comYou will get a 4 oz (118 ml) bottle of genuine playing card coating. This is the real stuff. This coating is used by the biggest playing card manufacturers. It produces a wonderfully smooth and slick surface. The cards will fan and shuffle perfectly.

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...

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...
