I think this answers my question I asked on a different thread. Does Paralabs have a website?

Curious. how is the operation during the routine? Is it opening the pad and writing in it then ripping out the page? A la like John Rigg's Butterfly? or is it ripping the paper out and putting it on the front of the pad?

Re question: it is neither. flip the first page and front cover of pad so that spec writes on paper backed by back of front cover and entire pad. Spec rips off paper seeing black pad cover beneath. Then, it's just a matter of closing the pad.

Is there a demo for this , or a clearer description of whole routine as sounds great but would like to know how it differs from everything else out there before I purchase. Has it English written instructions or instructional Dvd regards Gary

There are english instructions. They are incredibly simple. If you can open and close a pad you can do it. It's all presentation and designing effects after that. The reason it costs more than other impression devices is because the quality and ingenuity is better than other impression devices. Like everything else, you get what you pay for. There is another thread on Penny, page 5 that should coveer all questions.

Is the spectator holding the pad when they write and handing it back to you or are you "holding the pad" as they write. This may be a silly question, but is it natural for them not to close the pad after they write on it because you're telling them to rip the page and do other things, or do you need to do some audience-management to make sure that they don't close the pad. Finally, if the audience member does close the pad prematurely, is there an "out" for glimpsing a pre-closed pad? Thanks

This is a relatively expensine impression device but we are getting a quality device. This is a very good investment for the worker.

Hi,

as for your questions - the procedure is the following:

You hand them the pad and ask them to write or draw;
you call back the pad (either by asking for or by gesturing);
you close the pad and put it away - done.

So first of all: THEY hold the pad; this is usual and this is what they do.

YOU close the pad and get the peek - this is the standard procedure.
This will be achieved by keeping them busy with several parallel required activities.
IF they close the pad, you have an out obviously:
Simply open it again to write or draw something on your own.

But in practice this never happened to me, ... Smile

Hope it helps.
Cheers
Th.

A couple of weeks ago, I had a few questions about this. I liked it, but wondered about certain situations in which I might find myself.
I have used it everyday since and have no plans to ever change.
This is a FANTASTIC devise for mentalists.
Also, the service from from Paralabs has been superb.
I posted a "doubt." It was not a problem, just a doubt. Within minutes, I received a response from Thomas who offered to immediately send other devices for me to experiment with.
I love this product.
I love this company.
I plan on staying with them for a long time.
Having said that, I ran across a competing product on the net. There was complete exposure of the devise.
I wrote the company and politely (well for me) asked that the particular ad be edited or removed. I have yet to have a reply.
Thanks to Paralabs and hats off to great work all the way around.

I purchased the PARAPAD from Tannen's. The ink from the sharpie pen included in the set "bleed" through the paper. It also bled through using my own non-gimicked sharpie. Ditto with sanples from all the refill packs.Can anyone offer a solution or a reason for this to happen?

Hi Stanley,

we - personally - don't use Sharpies for they have disadvantages on several levels. E.g. they are not that durable as other brands (they dry out sooner). For this reason we offer Stabilo pens with all sets that we send out.

Nonetheless Tannen's made the same experience as we did: Customers in the States prefer Sharpies no matter what. Even if we explain that they are of lesser quality and may cause issues, US customers like to get Sharpies anyway. So particular issues like a reduced durability compared to other brands can not be avoided.

But we never had the issue of the ink of Sharpies bleeding through the paper! The reason for this is that we use a special paper for the ParaPad and the refills that avoids exactly this: Ink bleeding through.

So can you send us a photo please so that we can take a look on how this looks in your case?

heine@paralabs.org
or
mees@paralabs.org

Thank you!
Best
