Hey guys, not sure if this is the right spot but I'm interested in learning about all magic effects that use post it notes as a prop. I've seen a few nice ones recently, and there's something about the use of post its that really appeals to me. It can be any kind of effect - mentalism, card revelations, whatever, vanishes, transpo..only requirement is that it uses post its! Thanks for your time!! Smile

Hmmm.... Interesting act. You could bill yourself as "POST IT MAN! THE MAGICAL STICKY-NOTE SENSATION!".

Anyway, the only Post It trick that I have noted (pun) is in Joshua Jay's Magic, the complete course. It is called Post Bent.

You're welcome Johnny K!

I didn't mean that comment to be negative. --Just a statement of fact!

I can understand a beginner's interest! However, it's wise not to "specialize" before you understand a bit more.

I'll use my favorite mentor "story" to illustrate.

A ship is heading out to sea. A young sailor on his first voyage, is standing at the ship's rail, with an old veteran seaman. The young guy exclaims: "Man! That's a lot of water out there!" The old sailor responds: "What you see is just the top of it!"

In the circus, a "one trick pony" act, always finds it difficult to get booked!

Julian Moore's book Post-Justify has some great ideas for post-it notes.

I use post it notes as prediction card stuff. I have a card !@#$ed that is also written on the post it note. I have the spectator put it away while I do a couple tricks then finish up by having the card chosen. The reception is usually pretty good.

I've created one trick with post-it notes during my military year (I actually got the secret from my dream).

So the effect is: a spectator marks one note, which is folded 2 times. You place that note to plate & set it on fire. Then you take the ashes to your hands & make the spectator's marked note appear anywhere you want (on wall, floor, seiling, between your hands etc)! 100% impromtu, btw. If anyone knows if that kind of trick has been invented before, please let me know Smile

Check out The Drawing to Impossible Location on Wayne Houchin's Penguin Live lecture. It's not quite how you describe it, but quite similar.

Perfect for any one-ahead routine. Write your prediction(s) on the back/sticky side and fold the note in half to securely cover the writing until you're ready to reveal it.

Post-its go well with NW-ing. R. Osterlind talks about it in his coverage of 13 Steps to Mentalism video series.

They make post it notes now that are almost entirely sticky on the back. I place one of each of three colors on 3 blank cards and do color monte.

Once I took a post it note and printed "clean your room or your allowance will disappear" and put it on my son's bedroom door. Funny thing was - the post-it disappeared Smile

Jay Sankey has a great "Stop me anytime" prediction effect where you continue to remove sticky notes until the spectator says stop, and you turn that one over which says stop me here. It's on his YouTube channel. I forget what he calls it. But the principle is old, and versatile for use with cards, business cards, etc.

So many funny replies here.
But it seems the majority are in agreement.
If you really just want to go full on post it, you seems to be heading towards mentalism.
Ofcourse you can do other effects, it's just that the bias to mentalism is pretty strong here.

You could use post it's to form a magic square on any flat surface. Just a thought
