Greetings,

I am trying to find Bridge sized manip. cards with a design and color similar to Bee. Seo Magic has a deck but they are poker sized.

Currently I use Norm Neilson 'Ultra Thin' cards and these do work well, however my skin tone is more pinkish then beige and I figure the red backed design would have certain benefits in those terms.

They might not exist. But thought I would seek them out. Breaking in a regular bridge sized bee deck wouldnt be an option due to the volume of cards I am working with.

I would suggest you just use a brown marker to treat your corners if it is a concern for you. You only have to treat the top 3 or 4 cards.

There are other brands of manipulation cards, Lance Burton is darker, Duffy, and Vernet. Nielsen also offers a deck with a darker shade.

If you really want to use Bee cards, then buy bridge Bee decks and strip them or have a professional strip them for you to create a thin deck. It all depends on how much you want to invest in your desire for these cards.

If you have watched many of the manipulators on YouTube, you will not that many use the super thin fanning decks.

I used to get the bridge size Bees from Haines House of Cards. William is right about using a brown marker to darken the edges of the cards. Try different types of cards; both manipulation and non - manipulation cards. I usually mix up the cards I use depending on what I am doing. I use Bees for split fan productions and perfect productions since I am pretty rough on the cards with those type of productions. I use Norm Nielson cards for Cardini single card productions.

I like to collect fanning decks but I do not like to use them in card manipulation routines. They are more expensive and while they look great for fanning routines, they don't hold up very well for rough handling for card manipulations.
