I have the packet trick but I keep hearing that the effect can be performed without the gimmick. So where I can get a handling for NFW that doesn't use the gimmick? Is it in a book, a video, or lecture notes that I can order?

Use the "Search" feature.

I will tell you, however, if you want the effect to be as clean and "too perfect"
looking as "NFW", don't look to the ungimmicked effects that people are referring to as "an ungimmicked version of NFW", it doesn't exist! The beginning display to show four Jokers has put a lot of people off but it is no big deal really. If you have "NFW" perform "NFW" and the audiences will be able to exclaim, "NFW!"

Anything other than "NFW" is some other effect.

Stanyon's advice is absolutely correct. I've made modifications to my original NFW but it is still gimmicked. The only thing I eliminated was the adhesive. It just wasn't to my liking so I figured out a way to perform the same effect without it.
