Ordering TWO SETS for four-way possibilities, monte routines, etc.! Smile



I'm waiting for the additional envelopes to be offered and or a package deal. Why spend $80 when you don't need to?

At the risk of bringing back the trolls and critics of magician verification, I am returning long enough to thank Riccardo Berdini for "Black Door" (I just received mine in the hurricane delayed mail) and am glad to reassure everyone that it is nothing like my Switcheroo. However, a caveat - don't perform with all black envelopes. It does no harm to decorate the outsides of the envelopes as long as they remain black internally, and if you perform with an envelope with red stripes and I perform with a yellow envelope with green polka-dots it adds further distance to the idea that we might be employing the same techniques to accomplish several different end results. OK, now I leave you to your ... whatever it is you do here.

Don't worry. Every mentalist loves polka dots.
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)

You do you, Iain... it will certainly be unique Smile

Maybe we should create a big database of everyones different envelope decorations, so that we don't step on each others toes. Because I don't want some guy see me perform with a black envelope with unicorns and glitter, and then later see someone else with the same decorations, and thus suspecting these are some special envelopes. If only there was a way of avoiding this? Maybe just make them look like regular envelopes, so no one will pay attention to them?

I’m keeping it traditional. Mine are covered in edible sprinkles with a bit of paint chips.

We could perhaps humbly ask Jim to use his database, the one where we are filed under “Not Verified & Ignorant”. (Although Iain might be filed under “Sticky” by now.)

I just hope someone starts posting where to buy other, lesser quality envelopes that aren't really anything to do with the initial post; and then have a massive hissy fit when asked to stop...

Oh stop dreaming your crazy, impossible dreams! That will never happen on a forum full of gnorant people, where the unverified are weeded out.

Rather than switching, would it be possible to show the envelope empty, maybe let the spectator feel inside to verify and then have something appear?

That was the only thing I used quiver for and it would be nicer to use an envelope for my purpose.

Yeah, it would work, though it should be noted that with Quiver, both sides look identical. With Black Door, one side wouldn't be as good to have scrutinized.

Everybody has been focusing on the joy of patterned envelopes that this hasn't been given fair attention.

I don't think there was any danger anywhere that anyone thought this would be anything like your product.

David, have you been verified by the magical-envelope fraternity recently? If not, please remove your post or at least post a link to some aub-par not really related envelope work please...

I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, de-briefed or enveloped!

Unless the envelope is like, really, really, pretty.

I think a multi coloured spangly envelope is far less suspicious than a black one...

I think at the very least getting the glitter glue stick out to add some showbiz sparkle to the black envelopes is necessary.

For some time many mentalism releases claimed to "push the envelope" in some way. Now is the era for taking that pushed envelope and colouring the bejaysus out of it.

And this is preferable instead of Quiver, how?
How many magicians does it take to change a lightbulb? Regardless, for magicians darkness is a time for d'lite.
