Any consensus on who manufactures the best gaffed cards and/or decks?

If you invented a new trick and are looking for a company to make special cuts you might consider a local print shop. I realized a dream when I developed two card tricks. Magic Trick Store (they advertise with a small banner in the Café) took on the tricks and used a local printer to do the special cuts for both an entire deck and a small packet of cards. It was reasonably priced and they did a great job. I don't think you need a large company to produce high quality gaffed cards. Possibly it is more important who is selling them. I assume good magic stores don't sell poor quality tricks. But this is just based on my two experiences.If you are just buying gaffed decks, and you told a reliable store that you wanted high quality I think they would make sure you got it. I assume the advertisers on the Café would be reliable. We'll find out it others agree. I know the Magic Store is and there must be lots more.

I agree, Loopback....and while you're there, check out Card-Shark's Butterfly trick...very nice..My guess is that he made those cards too.. Smile ...

Do you even read the replies you get to you posts? The 2nd response gave Martin's website then he was mentioned a couple more times after that!

Those were references to Martini as opposed to Martin.........but both are excellent makers of custom cards.

Hi all! If ya don't mind, my faves:

1. Ellusionist Gaff deck (red or blue). A whole DECK of gaff cards (some real DOOZERS!) I could do several pages on this...but, this says it all:

http://www.ellusionist.com/bicycle-gaff-deck.html

2. CAJ (Clowns & Jesters Deck of Magic Gaff Cards & Booklet):

http://madhattermagicshop.com/magicshop/......_id=6466

And then, just when you thought there WERE no gaffs left to do, Ellusionist's Wayne Houchin and Daniel Garcia have come up with (my opinion) the best one yet:

http://www.ellusionist.com/ultra-gaff-deck.html

The ad says, "The final word in Gaffed playing cards."

Well, not really. There are three (THREE???) companion DVD's you can buy, to get the most out of your Ultra-Gaff. Remember, if you have the other gaffed decks, and the CAJ Deck, these routines can be modified for them as well.

Ya know, you can go just plain GAFF-Y, like I did...I've bought:

The red Gaff deck from Ellusionist
The Ghost Deck (regular) with the Gaff Ghost Deck
The CAJ Gaff deck
Army of 52 DVD (Ellusionist)

I really like Ellusionist's gaffs. They are lightspeed ahead of the old original from USPCC. The only thing I need to emphasize, is the need to buy the DVD's. If card gaffs are your thing, you can't really leave these out.

Martini, Neil Lester (Cards By Martin), Card-Shark, and Gary Plant (The Card Plant). Some think Gary's gaffed cards are the best.

Card-shark again. The reaction I get to his decks (especially the Medieval Tarot) are superb. I love the feel of them, the look, and the way he provides gaffs which really set your imagination running wild.

Cards by Martin's handmade gaffs are the finest quality card gaffs I have ever seen in my life.

I am so sorry to hear this. I have many of his gaffed cards, which I will now cherish. Golden Nuggets, Jerry's... you name it and he had it. He was a great guy.
