Update on my adventure.

I've had the Marty Grams Card splitting DVD for a while and finally got around to my first test of gluing the cards back together.
I took Terry Adys advice and also watch the DVD again and it does appear that a card with the core is glued to a single ply.

I built the "squaring board" to align the cards. Split an ad card and glued it back together... a 2 ply on a 1 ply. It worked as demoed in the DVD.

The only blemish is a few slight wrinkles on one of the faces -- noticeable when looked at closely. This may have come from the splitting or perhaps a little too much rubber cement. None of this would be noticeable to a spectator. One other thing is that the final card seemed to be a little bit thinner than the original.

It is likely from splitting. As you get better at splitting, you will split “faster” with no stops / hesitation and there will be no wrinkles. I first learned that on the Blake Vogt splitting downloads.

Thanks Poof-Daddy,
I'll split a few more ad cards then before embarking on splitting actual cards. I've got a few new fan back ad cards from the Bicycle canasta game pack (and Studs also) that are waiting to be made into double backers!
