Topic: The Master Peek Envelopes by Looch
Message: Posted by: ash2arani (Jan 24, 2020 08:18AM)
So Looch is preparing yet another release to kick off 2020 and this one seems to be ready in a month or so! Apparently to be released even before the other Q&A release discussed here elsewhere.

I am talking about the Master Peek Envelopes, which are Looch's solution to peek envelopes.

I am not sure about all the details but, according to Looch, "the envelopes can be viewed from 360".

Oh, and they are apparently designed for parlor/stage work but I am interested to see if they can be adapted to close up.

Going by Looch's history with Blink wallet, I am sure this will be well thought out and envelopes do open another dimension over wallets.

Maybe Looch or close associates can chime in about project release, advantages over other peek envelopes, and price.

I am looking forward to hearing more. Until then, let the speculation and limited info dissection begin :D

Hi there!

Yes you are correct. The Master Peek Envelope will be released soon. I am just awaiting the packaging to be finished and delivered, followed by some video editing and then the release will be on. I anticipate release within the next 4 weeks.

In regards to the gossip, these are the peek envelopes from my Penguin LIVE Act. Last year, after having done the act with Penguin, I was inundated with messages from people asking for help making them. I’m confident when it comes to arts and crafts type work but many aren’t so it’s almost impossible to have someone make them if they aren’t skilled in crafts. As a result I decided to contact my friend Alan Wong and sent him a set. A few months past and I received a package in the mail unannounced. Alan and his team had developed a way to batch produce these envelopes in a thicker Kraft material so they will last a long time. As a result I made the decision to have a batch made for release through my company Read My Mind Ltd.

The best way to be kept up to date on my products is either the website or our Facebook page:

Is this similiar to the envelope peek that matt mello/matt johnson used in dark arts?

It’s in his penguin live act if anyone wants to check it out! Along with some other great stuff!

It's not, no. It's like something else Looch released (not sure if I can say?) but it's quite different than the dark arts thing.

To be fair this did cross my mind? Does seem mad. Also taking into account that one of the envelopes is just ....... a kraft envelope? So 45 rips for one gimmicked envelope? They are ‘thicker’ stock? Im still on the fence, seems blink or the LPI offer better value? Depends what your needs are I suppose.

Also the words “with care, will last you” always rings alarm bells with me, if it gets battered, its on you 😆

The cost of manufacturing was significantly higher for these than the LPI. Also the durability on them is great, but you need to look after them in between shows, my current set are 18 months in and still going strong.👍🏼

If they last that long with regular use then its fair enough for me. It is mad how they were more to make than the LPI though, just shows ya! I do like the concept so will pick one up. I like that they are left blank for customisation, and enjoyed your performance with them in the live act!

Out of all the effects I own and regularly perform, two were created by Looch and this says a lot (They are AREA and Blink.) Looch certainly creates well-thought out practical effects and tools.

Although I do not yet have The Master Peek Envelopes, I have seen a close up video of the handling. It is certainly very clean and deceptive and, with a good routine, these envelopes could prove a brilliant tool to have and use.

Thank you! They certainly won’t let you down in performance.

In regards to the manufacturing cost being more than LPI. The LPI’s are made by a local fabrication company near me, where I can visit and discuss in person. They also didn’t have a minimum quantity order, which certainly helps small businesses like Read My Mind Ltd. With the Master Peek’s, they were manufactured by Alan Wong’s team in Hong Kong. There was a minimum quantity (500) and they are labour intensive. It used to take me 30+ min to hand make just one envelope and when I taught it on my Penguin LIVE act last year, I had dozens of people contact me as they couldn’t make them themselves. Hence releasing them ready made. Add to that, things like packaging, design work, video production and editing. It all adds up and needs to be taken into consideration. There’s a lot going on in the development and manufacture of a product, and I really won’t cut any corners as the products are a reflection of me and my name.

I hope that helps give a few more details.

I know it sounds cliche these days... but I’m really getting a lot of messages from people asking me “Will you have your Master Peeks at Blackpool?”

The definite answer is NO! 😂

Unfortunately I won’t be at Blackpool this year so if you are wanting to pick a set up please do so here: https://www.readmymind.co.uk/collections/read-my-mind-products/products/master-peek-envelope

Thank you!

The reviews are coming in quickly for our new Master Peek Envelopes. Check out a sample below:

"Any time Looch releases a new product, my ears are tuned in. I have yet to be disappointed by any of his work and these Master Peek envelopes are no different. Fantastically well made and they are easy to use. The peek comes from the same thinking of his Blink wallet but this is actually slightly easier to peek with.

I picked up 2 sets so I can use them for a fourth dimension telepathy effect where I can get 2 ahead before a misread. Excellent quality and a nice touch that they come plain so you can write whatever you want on them." - John C

----

"I love Looch's products and have purchased several, including the Black Project books. This Master Peek envelope is a stunner!

The envelope is gimmicked and clearly theres a hell of a lot of engineering that has gone into the production, hence the price point. It is however an absolute joy to use. Simple and effective and completely under your control at all times. This is the perfect peek envelope and I will be using this full time in my act." - Eric P

Looch,

Do you need two spectators to justify handling two envelopes? I assume there built-in justification for handling two envelopes. Is that assumption correct?
The envelopes look great.
Thank you.
Best wishes,
Michael

Hi Michael

Good question. There’s 2 ways explained in the video instructions. Essentially if you saw my Penguin LIVE Act last year I use one gimmicked and one ungimmicked for a one ahead routine. You can also just use the gimmicked envelope on its own.

I think a lot of people are using the ? Symbol on each so they can change presentations and not have to commit to one routine.

Hope that helps!

Kind regards

I also just ordered two. Even though I have his Peek Wallet, which is fantastic and highly recommended, the envelope version will be a great addition and will provide a variety of presentation ideas.
