Who makes the most realistic-looking flash bills? I am working on a routine that will be close enough to the audience that the "flashed" bill needs to look as real as possible.

Thanks for your help,

Flash bills are not made to be inspected. Counterfeiting is against the law even if it is a flash bill.

I have used flash bills close-up (2 feet from spectator) for years and never had a problem.

Just keep it moving, fold, light, gone!

I'm not looking for something THAT good...

Whit Haydn mentions a high-quality bill that he uses for Teleportation. Maybe he will see this post and respond.

Thanks,

Just because it looks close to a real bill doesn't mean it's counterfeit. Play money looks really similar to a real bill, but since it is not exactly the same and since it has the "not legal tender" disclaimer, it's ok.

Amos,

The flash bills that I got one time were really bad and the bill was like off-white with like a semi-bright green.

I don't know where you could get good looking flash bills.

Try Magic Visions "International Flash bill" this is a clever gimmick that lets you use ANY bill as a flashbill. I beleve that Hank Lee has this in the states.

You can print flash bills with a color laser printer which are very realistic.

Do you not have to worry about the fuser igniting the flash paper? (I hope you're kidding...)

Gary Plants gave me the idea to use half of a flash bill. This works in any routine that the bill is folded as it is burned. This saves money as well as makes the secret work easier.

Hank Lee carries the International Flash Bill, sounds like this is something to consider, being you want realistic money and it is only $20 bucks.

You can print on the thicker flash paper with your ink jet printer and it won't burn the paper.

It will need to dry thoroughly before it will burn properly, though.
