Topic: Svengali half pitch or wait for full pitch
Message: Posted by: fireperformer911 (Oct 11, 2007 01:39PM)
I purchase the Don Driver Svengali Pitch. Its very informational and I am very happy with the purchase. My question is to purchase the decks on tape you need a resale license. I was able to find 7 decks at the dollar store and wondered if I I could try to pitch it at the fleamarket this weekend and just sell the decks or should I wait for decks and two-card monte?

7 decks aren't going to last you two pitches,wait and get some stock.

Starting before you are ready leads to frustration.

Yep...don't rush it. Take your time, get your pitch down and gather all the stock you'll need.

Don't even try to do this, or anything else, half way. Give it your all and make it your best. You'll be glad you waited and did it right the first time.

Good luck. Mark.

Thanks everyone. It will probably be a couple of weeks until I get everything ready. After I have had a day of pitching I will post my results.

Don't forget that while you need a State resale license to purchase items wholesale without paying sales tax, you also need the resale license in order to be able to collect sales tax when you resell the decks at retail. In fact, at least in New Jersey, you are required to have a copy of the resale license visible when and wherever you are selling. I taped mine to the side of my pitch table, so I don't have to worry about forgetting it. Some shows also require you to provide a copy of your resale certificate with your application before they will let you have booth space or a table.

If you happen to be caught at a flea market, craft show or street festival selling without a resale license, your friendly State Sales Tax agent will not be happy, and can shut you down and fine you for the uncollected and unpaid sales tax, plus interest and penalties.

I know you're anxious to get started, but if I were you, I'd wait for the resale license to come through. In many states you can register online and get a temp certificate within 24 hours, it's not a big deal. In the meantime, you can always practice your DL's. :) SETH

The only way to make them yourself is to take the ones that need cut to a printer and let them do it.Its really cheap and most of all FAST.You don't have to have the cornors rounded.They work just as well with a .square cornor on one end.

Hope this is the answer you were looking for.



I make 50-100 decks a week-takes 2 hrs for 50

Like Don says-I go to a professional guillotinist at a print company & in 12 mins have 50 decks done

I cut- 1 mm from them & like Don leave the corners straight!!

Works great

Hope this helps!!!
