I agree with Jared that the size is just right.

Yes, I think the size is perfect. If you want a business sized option, then just go for an alternative peek method? Plenty of business card peeks available.

I’ve now used this at every gig since it was released, around tables, mix and mingle and on stage too - not bad value for money!

Looks really good. Although it seems that PIN is preprinted on the envelope, which in my view is a set-back, since it screams "I bought this at a magic dealer". Id prefer an envelope without any writing on it, or something not specific if writing on the envelope is necessary.

I'm probably going to buy it anyway in Blackpool next week - just for the construction and the quality of the props.

I think Marc Paul came up with a winner.

I know how it works and find the method simple and ingenious ...
I had already done this myself but was not satisfied with the result
I assume that this official version will be very successful and perfect
I'm definitely gonna buy this secret PIN trick & have a lot of fun with it

I didn't like those at first but the more I played with it, the more I liked it!

It's perfect for parlour and stage, everything is so clever in it, I really think this could find its own place into any worker repertoire.

If we could have Something else written on the enveloppe it would be a winner, but that PIN inscription holds me back.

It's already in my repertoire. The handling is so easy and natural.

I can totally understand this wish but the PIN is an important part of the show ...

Agree with the above. The PIN is part of the effect and in no way inhibits the veracity of the presentation.

I love this but am remaking my envelopes, to show a large ? or ! instead of PIN.

Always good when your own ideas can be realized - endless possibilities are possible here

I am very excited to see how this sales version is designed and done and see the routines

PIN by Marc Paul is an effect with envelopes and using the black arts principle (Matt Mello). Paul talked about this with a prototype in his hands in the Alakazam Academy Video. Paul Nardi bought the rights for Alakazam and they put out a really professional set of envelopes (you get two gimmicked ones and one regular one plus 30 special cards and there are refills of 50 cards). It is an extremely clever use of a "window" envelope and the envelopes will actually last you a very long time, although they look like regular coin envelopes, they are made from a special plastic. Marc and Paul explain in great detail the workings of the PIN routine and give many ideas for other uses. While you may hate the idea of "refills" ( I do not, well, not in this case) you will love what you can do with what you get, be it on stage, in a parlor setting or close-up. I give it 10/10 and I am happy to own and use it. I actually use it as of name/place routine, but have replaced the place by the PIN information. No more burning of billets and nor more centre tear and very clear and visible information for my eyes. Smile Highly recommended!

I wanted to add a few details:

The peek: Marc Paul shows you many variations on how and when to get the peek. This is so relaxed, that you could actually peek/look directly at it 3 times if you wanted to that. I do not have good eyesight, I am short sighted since I was 7 years old and now at 55 I am also far sighted... so I am happy that, like in many other Marc Paul routines, you write with a black sharpie on a clear white background.

This is NOT for design duplcations. The window is too small! It is perfect for... a PIN code (real or fake) and for words, like... name and place etc.

What is REALLY COOL about these envelopes is that you can show them from front AND back ANYTIME while the card is in the envelope, when it is out of the envelope, before the peek and, if you wanted to, even again after the peek!!!!! (Obviously not during that moment, well actually, again, the peek can also be a long look, it is your choice, but no matter how long you need to look at the envelope and see what the word or code is, you CAN make the card with the information inside the envelope invisble again in a second and show the envelope casually again from both sides... CRAZY GOOD!)
