If you need something to organize your packet tricks while carrying them around, you are probably carrying around too many packet tricks. I think more than one is too many, but that's me.

To follow up on the manila envelope sub-thread discussion, No. 3 coin envelopes will hold a Poker sized playing card snuggly. I bought a box of 250 at Staples a while back. By snuggly I mean snuggly. No wiggle room. Yo umay even need to force it a little. I'm not sure you could fit two cards in the envelope without damaging cards, envelope, or both.

The nice thing about No. 3 envelopes is that they fit nicely into wallets, if your effect calls for that. I've never checked out No. 4 envelopes. I assume they exist.

Regarding packet trick wallets, yipes. I keep a ton of those little plastic wallets for my packet tricks. One of these days I'll get around to labeling them, or better yet, buying something like the Pro-Carrier (from Joshua Jay's site), the Card Wallet (from Precision Magic), or one of Frank's fine Ambitious Card products.

Joshua Jay's Pro Carrier is a great investment. I've written a review of it at my magic review blog site at http://www.MagicReviews.blogspot.com

I bought a leather credit card wallet at Walgreen's - holds two packets of poker cards. Works great! I also found bus pass holders at dollar stores, that work really well.

I use 3" X 4 7/8" (#24) envelopes for packets. Each envelope will hold half a deck.

I like using cigarette cases I found this one for $12.00

bottom image is the outside

It has a spring arm and holds 30 cards but I just use it for 5 cards and two or three clove...
I mean magic cigarettes.

I have to second Vater's idea. I use a cigarette case and never worry about my cards getting bent (although I only keep those for Ultimate 3 card monte and Kioku in it).

Boris Wild lectured here on Thursday and he had a GREAT suggestion. Use a CD case. One of the soft square ones that can carry like 25-40 CDs. You place the cards in each with a little sticker on the outside of the plastic identifying the trick. I immediately got one and it's a lifesaver.

I use a small manila envelope for the packet tricks, they are #4 (4 1/2" x 3"),(they came in a box of 500 units, a little bit too many, Staples has it as Coin envelopes)

And to keep the envelopes I use a plastic box for index cards (5 1/2"x 3 1/2" x 1"), that could fit 2 poker size decks along with 1 or 2 packet tricks or several packet tricks. It is not fancy but works. I bought them at staples

Visa Cabaret will hold the packet tricks and is a good routine in itself.

See airship's thread above at http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?topic=163574&forum=201&8. He has an interesting idea about how to carry packet tricks.

I don't think that the now extinct Jerry O'Connell hand made, original 6 packet trick holder will ever be surpased by anybody in terms of quality and beauty.

His new ones are extremely nice (and they have a coin pocket as well), but they're made to Jerry's design at a leather goods factory as opposed to made by Jerry himself at his workbench.

For those who want a Jerry's original, there still may be a couple of these left at Wizardcraft, Jerry's US distributor.

I have three of the Original Packet trick Wallets as of today. When these are gone, that is it, forever

Craig, do you have any of Jerry's original Mini-Himbers left?

If not, do you have any ideas who else might have one?

(I meant to PM this to Craig and can't erase it now!..sorry.)

I carry mine in my regular deck case with the end folded in to separate them. That said, I never carry more than 2 as I won't have more than 2 regular decks on me.

I use a business card case.

It's a little plastic wallet with 2 flaps to hold business cards. They cost about a buck and a half at my local Staples.
