If you were to use Dark Arts handling you could for sure hand the envelope out to the spectator to examine and remove the cards themselves just as in DA. However now you have the added bonus of giving them one last look at both the outside of the envelope and the inside of the envelope right before the peek Smile

Yes that's true too. I guess that's a nice little bonus for camera work.
I know I'll repeat myself, but in my experience, once they removed the business card from the envelope, there is no suspicion in their mind about it.
But I like this handling you just described. I may try it. I definitely recommend getting DA and AD together Smile

I recently got a message from a magician by the name of Jack Daniels (I know, great name).

He purchased After Dark and messaged me to let me know that he loved it and also what he was doing with it and I wanted to share it with you all as its a great idea and one I had never thought of.

Using the blank template provided in the download he has made a promotional envelope that has his logo and name on one side and contact details on the other. As the envelope is made of card stock it is just as durable as a business card except so much more important and special as a keep sake to the spectator.

After doing the routine and reading their minds he puts the business cards back in the envelope and gives it to the spectator to keep which for those of you that own After Dark know that it is possible to give the envelope away at the end and everything for this is included in the download.

Jack leaves his spectator with not only a great memory and keepsake that will live on in the minds of the spectator long after the performance is over, but he also leaves them with his great promotional tool. Something that everyone will see every time the spectator takes out the envelope to show friends and relay the story!

This is one of those "I wish I had thought of it" moments!

Congrats to Jack for adding this awesome addition to After Dark. If you own the download I urge you to do the same to promote your name and magic.

I have attached a picture that Jack sent of one side of the envelope. The other side has his contact details.

I have been told that there is an application of the After Dark envelope that allows you to use it as a double envelope. Can someone, that owns this, verify if this is taught on the download? If so, I am very interested in purchasing this. Not to mention that I am already a fan of DA and definitely want to see the improvements. But before downloading, I wanted to find out about the double envelope option.

I think its not mentioned but as soon you build one envelope without peek feature you know what's possible.

Indeed you can use the After Dark envelope for other applications other than a peek.

Cheers

It's a pity that no one seems to be aware of virtually identical work on this exact principle that predates all of this by 20 years or more. Oh well. Research is a good thing.

Well, at least someone in this thread pointed back to something similar:

Ok... I've been using this for a long time and it is frying people. Such a great effect. My question, is does anybody have a contingency plan when it fails. 95% of the time it's spot on. You get a sloppy person that doesn't follow direction and 5% of the time, I have no idea what it is. Any contingencies you all are using?
