Peter,
I am looking forward to getting this book. I am having a blast with the Elevator and am happy you wre able to use my input. By the way, did you use my term "the Vulcan Grip"? I was hoping to get a chuckle out of the TrekHeads :cyclops:

Peter,
Cool! I am glad ya left it that way! I guess I will have to give Spock his due credit as well! If people understand the whole body move/flourish premise, I think they will like it as well.
I can't wait for your review on my new close-up effect :bg:
Take it easy

Sounds great, Peter. I'm anxious to get my copy. Will you contact us registered owners by e-mail, or how can we obtain ordering information?

Bill,

If I recall you have registered with us, all who has registered will recieve an email containing the obtaining instructions. There is one hidden thing the registered owner will have to tell us about their particular unit in order to obtain this booklet. This system is in place as to not to release the booklet to those who have already sold their unit after registering. We are not releasing this to make a profit, rather just a tool for the legitimate product owners to use and enjoy.

If you ever had a question or needed some extra advice or perhaps was simply looking for some powerful routines for The Elevator, then look no further. This booklet has it all. With this booklet, this will definately be the last street levitation you will want to carry with you at all times, rain or shine, night or day, shoes or no shoes.

Peter,

I can't wait! I hope my registration went through about a month ago as I never received any confirmation...

Come to think of it I did'nt recive any confirmation either. Peter? :cool:
Message: Posted by: Peter Loughran (Mar 23, 2003 01:11AM)
LOL, sorry guys we only responded to people who asked for technical support. If you emailed it and recieved an instant automated response telling you that it can take up to 48 hours for us to reply, then we got it.

It was very overwhelming the number of registrations we got and still are getting. If it was just a straight registration then it went directly into our database.

If you have any questions let me know.

We were amazed at the ingenious and well thought out submssions we recieved and included in this thing, that when you read whats inside, its like getting a whole new illusion all over again.

Thanks to everyone who helped us put this together.

Peter,

is it possible to get the Skript as a PDF-File? I am living in germany and s&h costs a lot. You can get the price for the skript via paypal ...

Hope this question is interesting for all magicians outside the US.

Greetings!
Message: Posted by: Peter Loughran (Mar 23, 2003 12:31PM)
Actually the price of the booklet should cover S/H even to germany, you may not get the next day, but you will get it. Making money off of this is not our concern, we want every elevator owner to have one. And I will be signing each booklet aswell.

Peter,

First off, I like your new Avatar.

For new buyers of the Elevator, will you be be offering a package deal for the Elevator and the Official Elevator Handbook (doesn't necessarily have to be a reduction in price of either) so that a person does not have to first purchase the Elevator and then with a necessary lag time subsequently purchase the Handbook?

As far as registration, does this also have to be a two-step process (first buy the Elevator, and then LATER register it)? At least for direct sales from you to the recipient, could the purchase of the Elevator, the registration (at time of purchase) and the purchase of the Handbook all be accomplished at the same time?

Thanks for the info.

Turk

P.S. From all the reviews and video clips I've seen, I know that the Elevator is a quality item (both construction-wise and effect-wise). However, you could be selling a ham sandwich and the Elevators would fly out the door based solely upon the strength of the Handbook contributors' reputations. Well done!! And kudos to both you and the Handbook contributors.

I have the same question Peter. I have been waiting to purchase the Elevator until there were more routines and tips available. If I buy it in the next, say month, will I receive the book as well? Thanks Bob

Turk, and Bob,

Yes you will be able to receive the booklet at the same time as youi purchase the unit.

You will still have to email us your registration information so it can electronically entered in our data base. If you have an email account, the registration takes about 2 minutes. Besides we can't force you to register the product as there are some disclaimers, guidlines and performance rights that you must agree to that is included in the manuscript. By sending us the registration information you are telling us that you fully agree to the terms and are entitled to the full performance rights and special offers in the future such as the booklet.

Yes I will include the booklet for half the price to simply still cover the printing costs of the booklet if you buy it at the same time as the Elevator unit itself.

Thanks for the support.

Peter,

Here's a thought: Is it possible to review the registration form prior to purchase and then email the registration/consent form back...thereby releasing the shipment of the Elevator and the Handbook at the same time--and with a minimum of delay and a maximum of efficiency in the entire transaction?

Just a thought as I come down off of my medication. (grin)

Truk I will still release the booklet to you at the same time as you purchase the unit and send them together. You will however still want to register it on your own time to take advantage of the performance rights and any other updates and extras we release for it.
