Hi,

I have two problems, firstly I have just found the wallet with cards but no instructions. The second issue I have is in storing the 'device' as it's nature means the wallet has a tendency to retain the 'device' leaving the card 'device-less' if you get my drift.

How does everyone else carry theirs without it doing the same?

The first thing I do when I get a packet trick or any trick is scan the instructions and the cards that go with the trick. This is incase I loose the instructions or don't know what kind of cards go with it. Sounds like a lot of work but it only takes a few minutes and save a lot of time if it is something I haven't done in a while and need to go over the effect again. I put a printed copy of the trick in a binder. I don't like reading a trick from the computer. I keep all my packet tricks that I want to perform in a wallet so they stay nice and keeps them seperate from my regular deck of cards. If I not performing the trick I put it away in a heavy brown envelope with the title of the front.
I find that if you stay organized it saves tons of time and keeps you from a lot of fustration hunting for things.

As far as keeping the card from becoming "device-less"......a small piece of wax paper will work wonders.

T_C_Magic: I usually have a box that I keep everything in but for some reason I can't find the instructions for this one effect. The kids have a habit of hunting through it though looking for cool stuff so could have been them moving stuff around. Smile

Stanyon: Good idea, thanks for that. I've tried glossy card before trying to make it look like there was a reason for it to be in the wallet but it still stuck to that and made things awkward.

Try using zig 2 way instead of the gimmick. That will make it last longer.

I have kept the "gimmick" facing against another card in the pack in a wallet for weeks at a time without a problem. It is a very simple matter to replace gimick with new d****e s***d t**e or Scotch restickable g**u

Thanks for the scanning tidbit, TC. That's a great idea and another in a long line that I'm surprised had not occurred to me.
