Topic: Size of the Envelopes used in Marc Paul's Penguin ACT
Message: Posted by: marcpaul (Dec 19, 2018 05:55AM)
Hi Everyone,
I'm posting this here because I'm getting daily requests for the size of the envelopes I use in my Penguin Live Act. Here's the information you need...

The sizes are this: The small black envelopes are approx 82mm x 112mm and the white (it's actually a very pale blue) is 90mm x 140mm. Remember the important aspect is to make sure the flap is V-Shaped. I bought these envelopes in the UK where we call the smaller envelopes a C7 size envelope, you can get them in a variety of colours. They are used for small greeting cards that would accompany a bouquet of flowers.

The "business cards" I use are actually double blank playing cards that have been trimmed down slightly so that they look more like business cards. Using double blank playing cards ensures that the cards handle well and that the ink from a Sharpie does not bleed through.

I hope that covers everything.
All the best
Marc

Your Live Act is one of the most memorable I have seen. Thank you for posting the envelope sizes.

Great lecture. Even though I'm in the US, I found envelopes to purchase in the small size (by searching for C7 envelopes). Do you know how I might find the large size?

As you find them, will you provide links for the envelopes?

I don't have a link for the blue envelopes because I bought them years ago. But here is a link for the exact size black envelopes that I use:

Really liked Marc's Penguin ACT (as well as the Live lecture)! I ordered the C7 black envelopes from Amazon. They seem identical to the one's from ideal-envelopes. Looking forward to performing the routine.

I've found the larger envelopes for you. A company in The Netherlands called Papicolour sells them. These are exactly the same size I have, 90mm by 140mm. Again they come in many colours but they have the light blue that I used in my Penguin Act. The website is in dutch so you may have to hit the translate button on your browser. The link is...
