also what about using a blank faced card and a DL to get a print from the card box?

been trying to think of some more and had an idea for what might be a nice gimmicked card, the card case design on the back of the card and a normal face (that might be whats already there if so then great)

you could then do some really cool card under box type tricks where they see you turn the box over with no card and when you slide it across there is a card...

I need to get this deck I think i could have some fun with gimmicked cards :)

They are fun, I have had some good responses with the red gaff deck cards, mainly because of the fact that the cards are so unusual that they generate a suprised response.

One (simple) favourite I do it with a 3 1/2 of clubs card. They select a card (3 of clubs) which I show them and they hold face down and I tell them to concentrate of the back of the card and visualise a club dropping onto the back of the card and falling through to the other side. I then comment that they didn't concentrate hard enough but did well and on checking the card realise they have 'half' done it. This usually provokes astonished laughter. I then perform a colour change to add the other half of the club.

A simple quickie but specs find it fun.
