For a bold one (not to be looked at too closely), stick two cards together (maybe after some splitting work in order to make them thinner) with a flat magnetic sheet in between.

I think you can get them (very nice ones) at "Cards by Martin".

Here is your source on magnetic playing cards. I did a search and it was at the top of the list.

These are far away from BICYCLE style.

No-one mentioned Bicycle style. There are no magnetic bicycle cards available. You must make them. You need 'shim' metal glued between the layers.

I do not know where to get the shim metal. Some magicians sold shims with a magnetic and that is how I acquired a small piece.

Contact 'Cards by Martin' he may be able to help.

...or buy them from me or any other custom card maker.

Magnetic cards are IMHO cards with a built-in magnet; you refer to a steel core (shimmed) card, which is attracted by magnets but can not pick up a shimmed shell for example.

Hello cardmaker, I got the pm and I sent you some questions. I need to know about the thickness of the card, can the spectators handle them? (in both cases, with magnet inside and with steel core).

Thank you.

I forgot to ask: does the magnet and the metal fill all the card, or are they only in some part?

I make my steel core cards with 2 cards (I split both and use the 2 with cardboard), is there any way to make the thickness of the card smaller?

I make my own shim cards by splitting a card and putting one of those paper thin doubble edged razorblades right in the center. Then glueing the card back together. They are as thin as the card was origionally .....or very, very close to it. As for magnetic cards I haven't tried to make any yet.....but give me time.

Many years ago I worked at a mall that had some kinda yuppie toy store called Turkins or Turks or something like that ... they sold a magnetic deck. Had a large flat metal stand-up display and you could mount the cards on it to make designs and what not.

Do those stores still exist anywhere? The one I'm talking about was in Maryland, but it was at least 10 years ago. I havn't seen any such store in South Carolina but maybe it was a northern thing?

The cards were stiffer than real cards, but very thin.
