Is it a must to have an envelope made from food board?

Can the larger as well as the smaller envelope made proportionally smaller in size (say half the original size)?

Um . . . what in the world is "food board" (maybe a typo?).

From the looks of it they might have meant foam core boards.

Yeah I presumed it was foam

But then when Ustaad responded... I started to think I was being thick and everyone knew what a food board was....

So can anyone who has got this confirm... when you have done the trick and are on the way home, and hungry... is the main envelope made out of uninterested food?

Question: Can this device also be used to discover something that's been secretly written DURING the performance or is it limited to only the 4 pre-determined outcomes?

Google - 'Food Board Material' and you will get the answer. It is also known as 'High-Density Polyethylene material'. I hope the creator of SWITCH-A-LOPE also meant the same. Smile

@ Arnaud: It will be nice if you can please answer my queries (but not a must - it's your wish Smile):-

(a) Is it a must to have an envelope made from food board?

(b) Can the larger as well as the smaller envelope made proportionally smaller in size (say half the original size)?

Looks interesting - it would be nice for a chair routine I perform but then I’d need four of them! £$£$!!! Shame

I also use as part of a chair test. Best is to combine a force and free choice allowing you to do 2 reveals with one 4-way out envelope.

Answers:
1)
I found food board to have the best characteristics in terms of solidness while still being an envelop. While it could have been plastic it would not add to it being an envelope. Also there are some needs linked to the secret that were best served with this material.

2)
One could make it smaller but this is really a stage prop, needs to play big. This for me gives it the right appearance and has never let me down as long as I perform this.

Hope this helps...

Thanks for the clarification of food board. I also did not know what is was until I started the construction process. Your question I answered in a separate response.

@ Arnaud: PERFECT! Thank you so much for answering my questions in a clear and concise manner.

So far, IMO, the best Four Way Envelope has been the Piatt Envelope (others opinion may vary). But after watching the SWITCH-A-LOPE demo video (and hoping that the Ad is 100% true) I feel that the SWITCH-A-LOPE will fill the much needed gap of an ORGANIC 4-way envelope.

I will wait for an honest review.

Thanks Ustaad for the confidence! Samples are out to the various reviewers! Trust me, I am equally keen to read them. Based on what I received from the individuals I shared this with I am sure you will not be disappointed!

Sorry but I love my own chair test! It involves 4 envelopes, one on each chair, each one needing a four way out.... This would be perfect but not at the price sadly...

Reminds of an effect from Martin Lewis, I think it was called technicolor prediction. Excellent effect.

A chair test is a "plays big" effect typically used in larger venues.
So even needing to buy 4 of these props it would seem that you could easily recoup your investment in a single performance.
So if it is truly a perfect solution for your needs I would think it would seem worthwhile to just get 4 of them.
