So when I read the description above it didn't specify whether it was marked on the face or the back. Which is it? Or can it be used either way?

Also, couldn't you get a similar effect with a duplicate and a nice color/top change?

The card is signed on the face. You can do it on the back, but then you might as well do a dbl.

But on the face, there is no denying that it is signed on THAT card.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

I guess that the last question is kind of pointless seeing that there are a ton of "similar" effects you can do that would be close to many of the gimmicked effects that are on the market. To each their own, but this type of thing isn't for me. Sounds cool though...

You could obviously do an effect where a specs sig appears on another card if you use a dupe, but then it wouldn't really be there sig, which, if your going to give them the card to keep, could cause a problem. In Forgery it is there sig so this worry never comes up. Also you'd have to routine it a certain way to achieve this effect where with Forgery you can just jump straight into the desired effect, and it's easy to acomplish and very direct.

"ace to face"?

I believe in Tattoo You, from what I have read, as I do not exactly remember the effect, the signature is moved from a chosen card onto a prediction that matches it. In other words, if they chose and signed the 4H then the prediction would match, thus being the 4H.

So the signature moves from the 4H to the 4H . . .

Not bashing the effect, I believe that the backs are different colours in that effect, are they not?

But with Forgery, their signature moves onto a freely chosen card. ANY card. The two cards used are completely different cards.

Ment face to face sorry. what you said is in fact true. my question is.... does the spec care it can be any card. the reactions I get from somthing like tattoo you is they are shock you could move the signature, and the fact the back color is red and not blue now proves the signature has moved to them

Well, in the end all you are really doing is a colour changing back, lol.

The effect are different, and yes, I do believe that the fact that it is moved from one card to a completely different card far stronger than moving it from one card to the same card just with a different back.

The iitial reaction may be a good shock, and it is a good effect, but not too hard for them to reconstruct, or at least see that their signature and card looks exactly the same as before the "magic."

I have performed Tattoo You and had gotten great reactions. But I have to say not a strong as Forgery IMHO. With Forgery there is no overhandling of the effect. Plain and simple as viewed from the specs POV.

I can't see wanting to sign a Black Tiger with Black Sharpie...

Right now the trick only works with White Bicycle cards - colours and tigers will not work, the Jumbo pips are nice for three reasons first it is the type of card that laymen are used to seeing on TV and in Casinos, second the jumbo pips help the spectator REMEMBER their card, also there is room on each card for the signature.

The trick comes with cards, gimmick(s) - yup there is a spare and an instructional DVD.

I like the idea of a gold or silver sharpie... It would be expensive using Black Tigers in any destructive trick, but I am sure it would leave an impression with the spectator. - Just to clarify though - right now the gimmick cannot be used with Black TIgers

Cool. Is it possible to use this as a torn and restored card trick?

It is possible to make the gimmick, and the DVD shows you how to make and repair the 'gimmick', in case you damage or yours or need a spare.

The necessary item needed however is very difficult to manufacture, there is a spare one included with the trick. Further replacements are available from the manufacturer - Kind of Magic (kwmagic.com).

It is very difficult to talk about the special item without giving away the gimmick - needless to say they were specially manufactured.
