Ad Copy:

Even if you're not a magician, now you can add SERIOUS FIREPOWER to the most critical moment in a meeting -- the part where you want them to REMEMBER YOU.

When Marcus Eddie hands out his business cards, he implants himself in that person's memory FOREVER. And now, YOU CAN TOO.

You either ALREADY know Marcus Eddie, and what a genius inventory he is.... or YOU'RE ABOUT TO.

Get ready for a promo your future clients will NEVER FORGET...


(ok not much of an ad copy, but the Vid shows what this is......)

Vid is around 36 minutes long.

I ordered this and watched the explaination, and from what I saw.... I like it! Its a quickie and seems like a nice way to hand out your business card. Now, that being said, it wont work well with my current business cards. It is not for any reason other than my business cards are very simple and mostly white on both sides. So the change would not really be that impressive. HOWEVER, this effect makes me want to have an alternate set of business cards to hand out with a lot more color on the front. Or I might use this effect to help hand out one of the wine bars cards where I perform sometimes at.

Gimmick is simple to make, about ten minutes time.


All in all I think this is a winner from Marcus..

Looks very nice! Can this not be done with playing cards?

Just bought it too, you can't help but like Marcus. It's a good effect, like Judah said above unless you have bold/colourful business cards it won't look as impressive (mine are just plain text on white) You could do this with playing cards but there's no real point, after all the effect of this is to hand out your cards at the end.

I'm gonna construct the gimmick and see how I feel about reset/performing it in strolling environments. It's currently in the penguin coolbox for just $4.95, so for that price it's worth having a look.

Looks like something I could really use a lot...IF...I don't have to walk up to my spectators all set up. Is this the case or may I start in front of them with empty hands?

Also, the "real point" of using playing cards is reserved for the imagination of the person asking if playing cards can be used. To say that you do not see "the real point " is rather condescending. You don't see "the real point" because he didn't share his vision.
