Does anybody on this forum know of a place that carries Jumbo gimmicked Bikes? By gimmicked, I'm talking about blank faced cards, double facers, double backers, etc.,. That is to say, the same gaffs you can get in normal sized Bikes, only gaffed.

I'm asking because I have some killer ideas on effects I would like to make with the Jumbo cards.

On the same topic, I once saw Copperfield do the Brainwave deck using a jumbo deck, so my hopes are up that they are out there somewhere.

You can make and ID and Brainwave Deck with roughing fluid...

As for the others...
-double backs don't need jumbo index
-blank faces don't need jumbo index
-blank both sides don't need jumbo index

-double facers do
-blank backs do
-weird facers do

Sorry for posting that list, it was more for my advantage.

I would enquire with Martin from Cards By Martin. Depending on the gimmick he could probably make what you want for you.

Caruthias, I think daffydoug means jumbo sized cards, not jumbo index bikes.

Daffy, I have not seen gaffed jumbo size cards for sale anywhere but I have had them made. If the situation permits and thicker cards are a suitable option you can always rubber cement them together. I have never tried peeling them like I have poker bikes so I don't know whether that would work.

I'm pretty surre he'll make the gaffs for you if he doesn't already stock them.

They should be able to help you.

You've hit the nail right on the head. I'm sure I could glue them together, but the thickness of the resulting card would be a dead giveaway, and would make false counts raelly dificult. Also, I have peeled hundreds of regular size Bikes over the years to make my own double facers, double backers, etc., but I suspect the jumbo bikes won't take to well to peeling.
