I purchased and performed once in a professional setting. Response was OK but not over the top. I think this really needs a compelling nonsensical story to turn it from a puzzle into magic. You could say that is true for any trick I but I don’t find that to be the case. For some tricks a good narrative is a bonus but not essential. I am not sure this will take the place of other “impossible object” tricks but we’ll see. There isn’t that much to say as the working is obvious, if it isn’t to you then you can go to Nick’s show on on Penguins Instagram where it is discussed in detail. Penguin can do this because the secret is all in the gimmick you need to purchase. Knowing the secret doesn’t allow you to do the trick. The sticker does not match the color of a card exactly for people who care about these thing but I do not think it matters at all. They stickers are reusable but you would need to take the time to stick them to another card right after use to keep them fresh looking. YMMV

Not sure how this is not a force card or from a bank of cards within your deck. The back of the signed card is blank, so it has to be a force or force from a bank of blank backed cards.


You are correct, I forgot that detail. Though it's not blank (it has the sticker), it would just have a white spot on its back.

That being said, you could still have a double backer on top of the deck and the gaff under it. They touch any card, place it on top of the deck, put the sticker on, triple lift, deal it onto the table and have them sign it and you're done.

It doesn't come this way, but if you had a whole deck of cards gaffed and ready to go with a couple double backers on top of the deck, you could have an instant reset that can last you all night.

Spread deck face up, they point to/name any card, you take it out and place it on top of the face down deck. Have them sign it, double lift, put a sticker on it, done.

You can perform this without any of the deck or double backer etc, Roddy has a wonderful visual video that I'm sure he will share soon showing this. wow is all I can say.

Hi folks. Just thought I’d chime in on this thread.
I’ve been performing this regularly for about a year and find that it gets great reactions. It certainly has a different beat to it than other tricks I perform so I always find a place for it as a kind of surreal bar bet. It tends to elicit those slow burn, “what the hell just happened there?” moments rather than the run screaming from the room reactions. Particularly the moment when they try to peel the white sticker off. I have had those moments where people lose their minds over it but we all get those perfect audience members from time to time Smile
Anyhow, it certainly plays well and does what it needs to do in my sets.
As to the durability of the stickers, they were designed to be reusable so I’ve found that I can get dozens of performances from one sticker. I tested them when I received samples and found that I could peel and replace the sticker over 100 times before it started to lose its stick somewhat. Even then it was still pretty usable Smile

I haven't read this whole thread, so maybe someone has already suggested this. If not... Instead of throwing the round sticker that is left behind after removing the card back sticker, I found that they work well to create a breather card. Just affix the sticker to the back of a the card of your choice and add it to the deck. Affix two to create a "deeper" breather.

Been performing this out and about for two weeks now, and it absolutely kills. I agree with Roddie that it tends to elicit a "slow burn" reaction, so it's really best to avoid the temptation to step in, peel off the sticker, and put an end to the effect. Let it play out. Give it space to breathe. Let them come to appreciate the impossibility and strangeness of the moment in their own time, and you'll find that the reaction just builds and builds, like a good spicy pepper. Smile
