I do just one effect where I palm a card. But it's where I need to palm as many as 5 or 6 together!

The move I use is to have those in a group on top of the deck, out jogged a little and with a little finger pressure on the top front, they swing up into palm position.

But what hides the palming is that I them move the deck so I'm holding it in the same hand. So the hand "curve" from palming them is hidden by the hand holding the deck!

I have another good ending going on at the same time and when all attention is on that. I just put the palmed cards in my shirt pocket. Of course loading them into a wallet would work the same.

Been doing this routine for a couple years now and nobody ever notices the cards loaded in the shirt pocket since they all have something to watch that they think is the ending of the effect.

You can do great magic when everybody thinks it's over!

Bend or curl the index finger of the hand holding the deck so that the fingertip touches the top of the deck. It makes the hand look natural/relaxed vs. stiff.

Starsinic beat me to it... gambler's cop is the BEST palm -- no problem with a small mitt... and the hip pocket wallet rules as far as I am concerned.

The Erdnase bottom palm is more angle proof, no?

The Bendix Bombshell Wallet is great for a no palm card to wallet. It also functions as a Himber Wallet. For the palm method, I use Steve Draun's Real Man's Wallet.

Get the Molika wallet with the inside wallet. No palming request, and the volunteer can hold the wallet before the production.

The magic of Micah Lasher has a good routine but I can't remember if it has palming or not. If it does you could use bridge sized cards?

Acextrem, I have mentioned this before but can not remember where. I just love the Mullica however there is the problem of the occasional 'show' of the load. The solution I came to was to either do as ebo2 suggests, have the spec hold the wallet (I hand a sealed envelope, (containing the wallet), with the logo printed on of which ever company has hired me or just my hiring details, so no sneeky peeking by spec)or have the Mullica in rear pocket. Mercury fold the selected card. No matter how small your hand, you can palm the folded card.

Ok, I will consider palming. But is there a wallet that incorporates both a palming and no palming method into it? If so, which is it?

BKM has will work but I'm not sure if you can do it with an envelope, too.

Jerry O'Connell makes a wallet that has both loading methods. You'd have to inquire as to whether an envelope can be used.

I have small hands and I tend to avoid tricks that require palming until I watched Michael Close's The Power Of Palming. Now I'm doing palming and I love it. He teaches everything you need to know and it's practice that matter not the size of your hands. Listen to Harry Murphy and other veterans of the Café, you need to try it as it's one of the most versatile tools you can learn.

There are some great tips here. I may have to check out The Power of Palming.

I use Draun's wallet + the Tamariz P C. Harry Murphy was very useful some time ago when I was looking for advice on the card to wallet. Read his post on the no palm wallets.
