Topic: Removing ink from cards
Message: Posted by: Nottingham Magician (Jan 8, 2018 03:57AM)
I couldn't find the answer to this but what is the best way to remove ink (pips) from playing cards without leaving a smudgy mess on the card? Thanks in advance

I have used acetone with some pretty good results

Very fine wire wool works.

I've never tried it but I'm sure I've read somewhere that nail varnish remover works.

Acetone is very good

Have you tried a pencil eraser ? I seem to recall having that work in the past.

Try a blender pen - I use the Winsor&Newton Promarker line. BTW the Ruby Red matches perfectly the Red bikes - you get blender and the red in the 12 set n.1

I don't think there is a method that is good enough. Why?
You always destroy the bubble coating of the cards, because
the ink is underneath.
There are some manufaktors like Card Shark they can print
individual cards.

I am not a fan of erasing pips or using acetone to remove anything off cards.. I say go buy a pack of blank faces n use it that way or if you are trying to make gaffs there are people like Gary Plants who will do amazing work on cards.

Axe deodorant body spray. Stinks like hell but it really works. Not my idea, I saw it on a review, sorry can't remember the name.
Anwyay, fold a couple of paper towels into the size of a cigarette back. Spray one of the corners liberally...about 6 seconds of spray....then rub hard on the pip you want to
get rid of. After that there will be a little ink left....respary a clean portion of your paper towel for a few seconds and repeat. When the card dries, it looks pretty *** good.
I've ruined a few cards but most came out excellent.
