Trick Sharpie (Black)
"...the reveal just kills." - Lonnie Dilan, Card Pro
Every magician uses a Sharpie and most carry one around with them. So they started using THIS instead and putting it into their routines. The response was instant and pretty overwhelming as you can see in the clip on this page.
You MUST have this and we'll tell you why. Some things, you don't know why they work but they simply do.
When we came out with this as a promotion last year we knew that mangling the Sharpie logo into a playing card reveal was a good idea, but we didn't know HOW good.
You'll thank us for coming out with this. A genuine Sharpie, with ONE difference.
Pick up one, or three, today.
Note: You must know how to force a card in order to use this product.
USING THE PADDLE MOVE WITH THE TRICK SHARPIE
"I used the paddle move with the sharpie, to turn the writing into the SixClubs - in a bar, on New Year's Eve :) To have the spectators watching, as the writing almost visibly turns into naming their card... My specs jumped through the *roof* (or at least, would have done if I was inside... as it happens, I was outside in the smoking area)
The key to working with the sharpie is to just not be afraid of handling it openly - the specs know what a sharpie looks like, and a cursory glance will confirm everything they know.
As it happens, when I pulled the Sharpie out, one of the specs said something along the lines of "Man, Sharpies will write on *anything*, they're great!" - At that point, I was so far ahead of the game that it wasn't even funny anymore!" - Brendon, Area 51 Member on Ellusionist
I like the paddle move with the sharpie. I show the logo with the paddle move and I just talk to them about permanent ink and how it's impossible to change things once they have been written on paper. I pop the cap and have them write a few things on the force card. i hold the cap and they hand me the marker...recap and table the marker.......then I just have them hold the deck and card....shuffle up till happy and I rub the sharpie logo and blammo.
Another funny thing I do is a deck stab with the sharpie. First, force card, then have them stab the deck with the sharpie. Have them cut the deck where they put the pen. They don't find the card..but you say that the pen found the card....point out the printing and get ready for some great reactions...the reveal just kills! - Lonnie Dilan, Card Pro
Nice trick to carry around. Looks like a real sharpie. I have someone select a card and then use the sharpie to locate their card in a facedown spread pack. When they wrongly find the wrong card I asked them to reveal the selected card and after doing a paddle move with the sharpie reveal the six clubs. It gets great reactions and people keep rubbing the sharpie after handed out to them. Great value.
Looks exactly like a real sharpie. I would use this as an after effect bonus for your spectator, and not just a standalone trick.
No one even looks at the logo so they can hold the sharpie in their hands and think it's a normal marker which makes the trick better. It's easy to carry around and it's a good product for any magic collection.
