Kingry,

While not familier with that brand, have you tried to go to a stationary store and fine envelopes for personal notes? They may be the size you need. When I made my wallet, I went to the store first and bought standard envelopes and started making my pattern from there, but I saw many types of envelopes available.

Since there are so many sizes and types of envelopes a good place to look would be an office supply store. Or you can make your own envelope to fit the wallet you have so don't worry that it won't take a normal sized envelope.

Life is too short to make your own envelopes. Find a correct wallet or a source for envelopes that fit. If you live in the boonies, then send me the wallet and I will check our local, office, stationary and art stores for you.

It was mentioned at the top of this post, but suprisingly not again......
so I'll do jerry o'connell a favor and tip his
the quality is amazing
plus you get plenty of instructions and tips
ok you have to customize the envelopes, but you get instructions on how to do this, complete with templates etc........
also if you visit his website there is heaps of helpful information and tips
this is the one titled card to sealed evelope in wallet for £88
although you can get the plus wallet for a bit more cash if you want to do no palm versions with the same wallet
hope this helps

Ron Wilson made and sold a beatiful wallet that took a smaller envelope, easily found in statinery stores. Makes more sense than the big envelopes.

I have the LePaul from Vernet and I did not understand your issue until I tried a "Standard" white envelope. It is 6 7/16" x 3 5/8".

The envelopes that I choose are brown coin envelopes. A No. 6 coin envelope is 6" x 3 3/8" and it fits perfectly without folding the corner.

The coin envelope opens at the end, so tearing off the other end is a natural way to open it.
Nothing would get done at all, if man waited so long that no one could find fault with it.

Strike that order info, unless you want to pay a $40 surcharge for ordering under $150 worth of envelopes. Back to the drawing board again.

DorianGrey -

Don't do this trick! If props don't fit you or the character you play, then you should not use them.

I'm assuming you are a teen or even younger and that you don't perform professionally. If that is the case, then your character is the same as your true person. You can't be with school friends and then all of a sudden morph into a new person when you perform magic - just doesn't work.

There are loads of great tricks that you can perform with a few pocket props or found items. Think two-in-the hand, one in the pocket; jumping gems, hot rod. Loads of card magic with a borrowed deck. Card to pocket, card to envelope (see early in this thread by Pete)

Don't try and learn every new trick you see or hear about. There are just too many. Pick a few that fit you and become the best at those tricks.

Good luck!

Hello this is an excellent suggestion but a wallet is fine to carry with me just not a massive one as I do not carry a lot of money with me and it does not fit in my pocket.Is there such a thing as a small wallet which you can do card to wallet with,as it seems a lot more impressive than card to wallet.What would you recommend for an impressive end to my ambitious card routine?Would you recommend Toibox?
thanks

Card to wallet is such a great stand alone effect. I would not dilute it using it add an add on.

I know many who do. I simply wouldn't.

The JOL Hip Wallet is indeed a great wallet, but it doesn't natively support card-to-sealed-envelope which the OP was asking about. (Though if one were familiar with the Harry Robson Instant Reset principle I'm sure it could be adapted.)

Right, ! The JOL Plus Wallets are among the best there are for card-to-envelope. The first post from yesterday is about finding the smallest options that support envelopes (he and I have PM'd a bit), and as great as the Pluses are, small they're not (even the Small Plus). That wasn't the original question from 2005 that started this thread, and I'd forgotten that - sorry!

Among the smallest CTW wallets that I'm familiar with, none natively support envelopes that I know of. Harry Robson's H.O.W. does, but it's somewhat larger than the JOL Hip, Real Man's, Anthony Miller's, etc., class. I'm hoping that if anyone knows of a wallet smaller than the H.O.W. (which is about 130mm x 98mm x 13mm, or 5 1/8 in. x 3 7/8 in. x 1/2 in.) made for card-to-envelope that they'll post here, 'cause I'm curious, too. Smile

Hi,

I received a job lot of old wallets for Christmas. I recognize most of them as early JOL''s. Though there is one that I don't recognize. It is almost square 4 1/4 tall by just over 4 1/2 long (wallet closed). Heavy grained black leather with gold metal corners and gold finished metal stud clip. It is, I am assuming a No P... wallet with the entry point set vertically near the center on the rear of the billfold. it has a vertical zip inside with room for 4 credit cards either side of center. Room to store rear of credit cards.
If the above description sounds familiar to anyone I'd appreciate knowing who made it. It handles great and has great stitching, so I feel it could be a JOL.
Sorry, no facility to post a pic.
Any news please PM me.
Cheers, Dean

Although it did cross my mind that it could be a Roy Roth.
