Anagramation by Jim Krenz

The performer displays a stack of business cards which each have a magical logo and the phrase "For Astonishment..." on them. The spectator initials the top card of the stack and a playing card is also selected, but not yet revealed. The performer flips through the stack of cards and the printed letters move slowly at first, then begin careening all over the card, bouncing off the edges and each other. As the letters slow down, they are seen to be forming into new words in an "anagramic" way. When they are finished moving, they read "Nine Of Hearts!" When the spectator's selected card is revealed...

Blistr by Chris Wasshuber

Blistr is a new card punch with two important differences to more traditional card punches. First, it is built like a pair of small pliers and therefore very easy to use. The pliers are a flexure design 3D printed from durable plastic. (Starting design was created by BYU Compliant Mechanisms Research which I modified to fit my needs.) Second, this punch creates a bigger smoother blister than needle-based punches. The tip is not sharp and therefore does not punch through the playing card. For many, this will be easier to feel than a fine needle prick. The blister is a half-dome about 1 mm in diameter. The...

Bloom Miracle Poker Machine by Gaetan Bloom & Chris Wasshuber

This is a completely new and improved implementation of the famous Al Stanger Miracle Poker Machine. It is based on Gaetan Bloom's superior routine for this miracle. The first phase of the Bloom routine is now customizable and requires zero mental work - an improvement to an already astonishingly clean and clever and easy to perform routine.

Here is a brief outline of the effect: A spectator selects 5 cards from a regular deck of cards. (The deck is not gimmicked in any way and can be a borrowed one.) Four of these cards are entered by the spectator into the Miracle Poker Machine. A fifth...

Card Punch by Chris Wasshuber

This is a card punch 3D printed from durable plastic. A card punch is used to mark cards imperceptible to people who are unfamiliar with it. If you do not know how to use it this item is not for you. There will be no instructions supplied with the item.

The primary innovation in this model, besides that it is 3D printed, is a screw-needle combination which makes adjusting the depth of the punch a breeze. Simply turn the screw a bit more in or out to set the needle tip deeper or higher. If you have moderately strong fingers you will be able to turn the screw by hand. Or use a small hex key...

ESP Cards with Bicycle Back Marked by Lybrary.com

You will receive four sets of 5 ESP cards (circle, cross, three wavy lines, square, star), a total of 20 cards. Two sets have a red Bicycle back and the other two sets have a blue Bicycle back. These cards were manufactured by USPCC on their standard air-cushion cardboard.

All cards are marked on the back in an easy to read way. A short glimpse is all you need to know which symbol it is. However the Bicycle back design wonderfully camouflages the markings if you do not know where to look. Wonderfully matches regular Bicycle cards allowing combinations of effects with ESP symbols and standard...

Frozen Lock Improved by Tommy Wonder & Chris Wasshuber

In the second volume of The Books of Wonder Tommy Wonder describes what he calls a Frozen Lock. This is a utility device for the Jack Miller holdout, but it can also be used for other holdouts and pulls. It allows one to keep the holdout higher up in the sleeve until you want to lower it. Exactly how this works and how it should be used is something you will need to read in Tommy's book. This item comes with no instructions. I am assuming customers know how it is being used.

Tommy Wonder produced his lock from brass. However, brass is not necessarily the best material for this type of device, because...

Gozinta Boxes Revisited by Lubor Fiedler & Chris Wasshuber

Lubor Fiedler's Gozinta Boxes is my all time favorite illusion. It has been so ever since I first saw it performed decades ago. I love the simplicity, clarity, and impossibility of the effect. Two boxes. One clearly larger than the other, because one fits into the other. But wait - now the larger one is smaller and the smaller one is larger. Every child can understand the impossibility of this. It transcends any language or cultural barrier. Since no explanation is necessary the magic first happens on a very deep visceral level. But then when the mind kicks in and tries to find an explanation...

IGG Instant Gig Getter by Unknown Mentalist

This includes physical gimmicks which will be shipped to you. The pdf can be instantly downloaded from your digital shelf.

IGG - According to Wikipedia "This is the most common type of antibody found in humans. It protects the body from infection."

IGG - Here this means "Instant Gig Getter". It insulates your performance from potential spectator disinterest. It also 'infects' your participant with absolute amazement.

IGG is an instant killer. You could ideally do this for someone from whom you may be soliciting a gig - an agent or a VIP client etc.

Main Effect - A participant merely thinks of anyone from among 4 or 6 famous personalities. This is a completely free choice and there is absolutely no force.

When the participant reveals her chosen person, it matches with what...

Al Mann
O'Daneven's Secret by Al Mann

Effect:

One to four spectators choose a design out of a choice of 16 designs. The performer either reads their minds or has their choices predicted in advance.

The method is a clever combination of known mentalism principles.

You will receive a manuscript of 7 pages explaining various routines for O'Daneven's Secret. You will also receive a printed cardboard similar to the cover image of this product. (This is the original print run Al Mann made. It is therefore an original Al Mann item.) To assemble the prop there is a bit of cutting and gluing necessary but nothing a second grader...

Perpetual Calendar on a Sticker by Grant Stuart & Chris Wasshuber

Quickly find the weekday to any date between 1500 and 2299.

You will receive a perpetual Gregorian calendar, covering the years from 1500 - 2299, which is printed on one self-adhesive label of size 2.25" x 4" (54 mm x 100 mm). Below the calendar table are the instructions in three lines of text. If you do not need the instructions simply cut them off.

The sticker fits nicely on a case for a deck of playing cards, with the instruction portion bent over the lower edge. (See the photo.) Thus, the calendar fits without the instructions on the back of a poker-size playing card. The calendar...

Rubber Bands for Shuber Blades (5 pieces) by Chris Wasshuber

We received so many requests for these rubber bands that we decided to offer them separately from the Shuber Blades. The blades will hold forever, but the rubber bands will eventually deteriorate or break. With this package you can get replacement bands for your Shuber Blades.

You will get 5 replacement rubber bands. Each rubber band is custom made from a transparent synthetic rubber. They are 0.75" (~2cm) wide. Their flat length is 3.7" (~9 cm). They fit the Shuber Blades perfectly but have also many other uses.

I sometimes use these rubber bands without blades. It doesn't give you the same protection...

Shuber Blades by Chris Wasshuber

Shuber Blades are the new versatile and cool accessory for the modern card magician. They protect your cards like a card clip or card guard, but are not limited to a single deck of cards. Anything from a single card up to two decks can be protected equally well.

Shuber Blades are two sturdy stainless steel plates with size and shape equal to a Poker card. Put one plate at the bottom, the other at the top of your deck and secure everything with the custom rubber band. The plates will protect your cards and keep them flat and clean. You can protect anything from a single card, or small packet...

Shuber Vise by Chris Wasshuber

The Shuber Vise is a card guard that has a card press integrated. I always wanted to combine these two functions into one small enough accessory to fit into my pocket. The Shuber Vise does exactly that. It is not wider than a deck of cards and is only somewhat longer and thicker, yet it perfectly protects your cards and keeps them under pressure so that they do not warp or bend, which every deck of cards does after some use without being pressed flat. With decks that cost $20 and more these days, it pays to take good care of your cards.

If your deck is already warped and bent, no problem....

Slurp by Mark Parker

The performer displays a small stack of cards showing an illustration of a glass full of red wine, the glass still has a price tag attached to its stem. A spectator is asked to sign their name/initials on the price tag for identity purposes. The performer takes the card and visibly squeezes wine from the card into a small glass. The card is now shown to the spectator but the glass is now empty...amazingly the price tag still has their signature written on it...a miracle.

The gimmick that allows you to squeeze wine from the card is very well made from aluminium and plastic and can be used...

The Ultimate Magic Square (King of Hearts) by Chris Wasshuber
"I've been doing magic 40 years, and this may be one of my five favorite tricks. Excellent thinking. Hard to top." - Clyde Hayre, US.

A spectator is asked to throw three fair dice (this is an absolute fair throw, or even just a mental throw - no force here). From the number fairly thrown you construct a perfect magic square. For a kicker the cards are put together and the face of a King of Hearts appears.

There is no palming of cards or exchanging of decks or anything like it. You work with 16 cards and 16 cards only without any sleight-of-hand.

You get 16 specially printed cards...

Michael Maxwell
Toony Angel by Michael Maxwell

The most successful effect of this kind was Dan Harlan's CardToon where a deck of cards doubled as a flip book. Riffling through the cards one would see a cartoon magician drawn on the backs find and reveal a chosen card. This effect was a huge success, potentially it was the most successful magic trick of all times (my guess, I don't really know).

Toony Angel builds on the basic idea to use a deck of cards as a flip book, but rather than animate a cartoon character on the back, the angel on the bicycle, from the Bicycle back design, starts to cycle towards you, zips around on the back of the card and...

Two Card Stand by Chris Wasshuber

This is a card stand for two cards (or one jumbo card) primarily for close-up use. The stand is semi-transparent and hides the number index sufficiently so that one cannot read it. One can see that something is there but not exactly what. The cards do not sit completely upright but tilted back by 10 degrees to improve visibility in a close-up setting.

The stand is 17 cm long, 17 mm high and it has a semi-circular cross section. The depth of the slit is 13 mm - meaning the bottom most 13 mm of a card will be hidden by the stand. The stand is short enough to be carried in an inside jacket pocket. ...

Watch Winder: noise maker by Chris Wasshuber

This little tool produces a clicking or ratcheting noise and is typically used for comedy bits to wind up a watch or crack somebodies arm or neck and other bits.

The starting design came from Randi Middleton who gave me permission to use it anyway I like. I have made several changes to the design, rounded some corners and edges so that it feels better in the hand. Since I am using a stronger material I also could thin up the walls to make it slimmer and I optimized the tongue shape to maximize the noise. I also improved 3D printability. The biggest change is in my use of materials. The housing...
