The Black Envelope by Bob Kohler

What Is Black Envelope? Bob Kohler’s Black Envelope is a truly diabolical secret based on an idea from top Scottish card man Peter Duffie, tipped to Bob by Frank Garcia. In typical Kohler fashion, Bob then honed the concept and created five real-world, practical routines which have all held a steady place in his professional repertoire for over ten years! These are no pipe dreams, what you’ll learn are professional routines which “get the money.”

What can you do with it? Here is just one of the effects possible: Imagine showing your audience a black, letter-sized envelope, which you place in full view on the table. A card is then selected and signed by a spectator. Instantly, the signed card appears inside of the envelope! And get this -- there's no palming whatsoever!

The Black Envelope DVD includes detailed explanations to this and four more complete routines, each utilizing the ingenious principle in a completely different way. You’ll learn the methods, moves, and even presentations to the routines that Bob has used to fool lay audiences and expert magicians alike for years. Each of the routines vary in skill level from easy to medium difficulty. Every magician will find something they can put to use immediately.

Routines performed and explained:
No Palm Card to Envelope
Astral Envelope
Sphere of Influence
Thought Of Card
Perfect Stop

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was recently out in Kansas City and decided to go to UST Magic and found this dvd. WOW! the princple is amazing and really works. The envelope is completely examinable at the end of EVERY routine and so is the card. The way to get a signed duplicate in the No Palm Card to Envelope is worth at least half if not ALL of theasking price. Plus you get five envelopes with the DVD. But I am sure you will give then away so you can order packs of ten for $8.00. The DVD quality is very goodexcept some problems with the sound during parts of the DVD. It gets

I had this, loved it, then got Special Delivery, which I think is a little better in the clean showing of taking the card out. But I use a routine mostly from the Black Envelope DVD.

You might want to try the search function. Both of these effects have been discussed at length here on the Café.

David Regal’s “Special Delivery” is a killer effect. A freely selected playing card is signed and returned to the deck. The spectator looks through the stack of window envelopes until a card is seen inside one of them. You open the envelope and inside is the signed selection.

It is basically a signed card to wallet type of effect. But rather than using a wallet, the signed card is found in window envelope that is in the center of a rubber-banded stack of window envelopes. The stack of envelopes can be in plain view before the card is signed, and lost in the deck and well before it vanishes from the deck.

I use this trick regularly, lately more than my card to wallet.

Can someone tell me if the Black Enveloppe is hard to do?

How many hours, for a begginer (my dad) does it take before he can do a effect?


thanks

The Black Envelope routines vary in dificulty, but I wul say that he would be able to master the handiling in about thirty minutes for the No Palm routine. HOwever, I would reccomned more time than that practicing the routine so yuo can do it right.

The envelope is ungimmicked, so it would be a simple matter to make more if you needed them.
