Pronto Printo performance:

Correction, the effect is actually called "Pronto Print" not Pronto Printo. It was released by Peter in 2005.

Does anyone know the name of this effect ? I feel bad. I've been preforming this effect for a few month now. I first saw Dynamo preform it. But I've been wondering what's name of the effect. And who invented it?

If you like blank cards and you have John Bannon's Impossibilia, he has a great one called Twilight Zone Assembly. It is not a packet trick, it's like a slow motion ace assembly with blank cards.

Poker Test 2.0 by Erik Casey can be done with blank cards and is one of my favorites.

I like John Bannon's Duplicity.
Plays out a lot like Bannon's Twisted Sisters.

Here's what is says on Bannon's website: "A red-backed Ace from one packet changes places with a blue-backed Ace in another packet. Your spectator chooses which Aces transpose. In a series of surprising developments, the mentally-selected Aces appear face-up in each respective packet, then their backs prove to be different, then as a final climax, all of the other cards in each packet are blank."

I always liked Prest Printo, but never actually preform it, usually I don't have enough table space. And since I don't perform it regularly, I worry I'll get the orientations wrong. It's a great trick though.

Also I love Dazed. Perform it often.

I just learned of Duplicity, and one big note is that it doesn't require a table, which Twisted Sisters does, and some of the magic takes place in the spectator's hands which is always good.

A hidden gem is "Penetration of Blank" in Phil Goldstein's (Max Maven's) book Focus. It's a blank card version of Dai Vernon's Penetration of Thought (in The Dai Vernon Book of Magic) and Thought Transposed (Dai Vernon's More Inner Secrets of Card Magic). The face of any one of four cards (free choice) transposes onto a blank card leaving the named card faceless.

I just came across this great thread, while trying to track down the trick that some blank-backed cards I have belong to.

Besides some blanked-faced cards and completely blank cards, I have the following set of gaffs:

8/9/10/J/Q/K Spades - all blank-backed.

Does any specific packet trick or magic routine (including some of the above mentioned ones) come to mind which would use a specific set or sub-set of cards like these?

It has already been mentioned, but "Pronto-Print" by Peter Duffie is a great option. I worked out a variation that allows you to print the backs of the cards as well as the faces. It involves two selected cards and adds a kicker transformation to the end of the effect. Peter now includes this handling as a bonus in the downloadable version of the trick. I think he still sells it:

Clearly I'm a little biased, but this is one of the best blank card packet tricks out there.

@EndersGame, one variation I do has a Royal Flush ending instead of involving a second selection. This variation could utilise some of the cards you have.
