Seems to be sold out everywhere I look.
After much soul searching about a signature, I decided not to have one.

Hey everybody, we at balcony productions are so happy that we got worker of the week and such a great review!
And by the way we have some units left at http://www.balconyproductions.com Smile

I'd like to answer some questions and speak about the problems some of you seem to have.

@jker1104
you can use any normal deck of cards you have, but we recommend a red backed deck, because the ink is more visible on red then on blue for example, but basically it doesn't matter, use any deck!

concerning the visibility and the noise:
everything is covered on the DVD, there's also a troubleshooting included.

when performed right the gimmick isn't visible, the noise is also minimizable!
The DVD also teaches how you have 100% control of the gimmick, you decide exactly when the magic happens and when not!

@the merlin of margate
with Ink'A'Change you can also do a Cardiographic style effect and the reset is literally instant.
You can approach a group/table any way you want, do any effect you want and Ink'A'Change will be ready waiting for you in your pocket
and whenever you need it you take out your stack of business cards and go straight into your routine!

hope that answers some questions!
If you have any other questions I would be happy to cover them!

All the best

Hi Nico,

Does this concept work the same with coloured back business cards?

Mine are lime green - and, having just got a vey large run printed, don't really want to order a new supply!

Many thanks, in advance, for your (honest) appraisal.

I haven't located it anywhere. Penguin says it's expected back in stock May 1st. Maybe with the WPR review, they can get it quicker. The lads were gobsmacked over this.

Can you use a stack of post-it notes to do the effect?

I am surprised that Nico did not address the availability issue.
I will be getting this...someday.

Ya you just had to text me today about this huh?

This looks so cool - no surprise that Alexander Kolle was involved.

Yes please if someone could answer a query if there is a limitation to what the reverse side colour - non writing side can be? someone has said that if its plain white the gimmick will flash more? If for example the back of the bc is black would this be ok?
Thanks

I say stay away from this. The one time I took the plunge and bought something without first reading some reviews I got busted.

It's sad to see people like Alexander Kolle (he's a great magician) behind this.

The gimmick is visible and is not silent either. In a less noisy situation it can be easily heard. To top it all off, the gimmick is not 100% reliable. It might go off unexpectedly on you.


niva, I missed your comments. A bit of noise I can handle, but the gimmick being visible and going off on its own would be a downside.

Maybe when Dave and Craig use it at a gig, they can report back.

Hey guys
@Merc Man
you can basically use any kind of business cards as long as you can see the ink of your marker on the card it's just fine! you can even use black business cards (@PRINCE Smile ) when you use a silver sharpie for example.
when done correctly nobody will see anything.
@JCheng
you could use a stack of post-it notes, but it's not explained on the DVD! We covered business cards and playing cards, but if you think about it a little you will figure out how to use post-its.
@professorwhut
I wrote that we have some left on our site http://www.balconyproductions.com/products/inkachange.htm you can order from there! Smile
@Zombie Magic
as I said when done correctly the gimmick isn't visible and you have complete control of when the change happens.
Noone ever saw the gimmick when I was performing it, nor when Alex or Victor performed it!

in blackpool this year we showed it to some magicians and even they were fooled from seeing it live.

so I hope every question covered so far Smile

All the best

I just shared a PM with one of the posters here on this thread who bought this & thinks Ink A'Change is a great effect... and noise is not a big issue with the right cover or setting.

I trust this person based on past experience - looking forward to hearing more.

I am going to wait to order when a U.S. dealer has it in stock.
I was referring to U.S. dealers in my above posts.

Hi,

I was wondering if someone could let me know if the drawing that changes has to be the same shape e.g. 1 card changes to another. Or can the drawings be totally different e.g. so ones name changes into a card.

Thanks

many thanks for the reply, this helps. To be honest I don't put too much store on the WPR's I would much rather hear reviews from people actually using this in the real world. It does look awesome though!!

Craig and david are too of the busiest magicians in th uk, so I'm sure they do or plan to use it in the real world. Whether you chose to agree woth their opinion is up to you though. I've just got this and will post my thoughts soon.

So this arrived today and I looked at the dvd with a puzzled look on my face having seen the gimmick material. E.g. I still had no idea. Having watched the dvd,i think the WPR was spot on. It's practical, as visual as it appears on the demo and very clean. You make the gimmick yourself and have enough material to make a fair few gimmicks if you like. The gimmick will take five minutes maximum to make.

In terms of it "going off early", this is covered in the dvd but there is a slim possibiltyof this happening I think but highly unlikely if you do this correctly. In terms of noise, there is some. In a bar, this'd bever be noticed. In a quieter venue you would need to cover noise but again, this is easy as you have one free hand to click fingers with.

In summary this is really clever and useable. Sadly for me, there is a "but". Nothing to do with ad copy or product. However, I purchased this in a hurry after WPR and overlooked the fact I have ordered new cards with a large circle on the back along with a qr code in one corner. I could probably still do trick but there would be limitations. If you have mainly plain background on card, you'll be fine. If there is some writing on edges, fine also. My card is perhaps a bit too busy. Like I said. My own stupid oversight.

In summary. I dount too many people will be dissapointed with this. I think its great, albeit not useable with my cards.
