Trick Sharpie from Ellusionist
Note: You must know how to force a card in order to use this product.
Every magician uses a Sharpie and most carry one around with them. So they started using THIS instead and putting it into their routines. The response was instant and pretty overwhelming.
A genuine Sharpie, with ONE difference. Pick up one, or three, today.
USING THE PADDLE MOVE WITH THE TRICK SHARPIE
"I used the paddle move with the sharpie, to turn the writing into the SixClubs - in a bar, on New Year's Eve :) To have the spectators watching, as the writing almost visibly turns into naming their card... My specs jumped through the *roof* (or at least, would have done if I was inside... as it happens, I was outside in the smoking area)
The key to working with the sharpie is to just not be afraid of handling it openly - the specs know what a sharpie looks like, and a cursory glance will confirm everything they know.
As it happens, when I pulled the Sharpie out, one of the specs said something along the lines of "Man, Sharpies will write on *anything*, they're great!" - At that point, I was so far ahead of the game that it wasn't even funny anymore!"

I like the paddle move with the sharpie. I show the logo with the paddle move and I just talk to them about permanent ink and how it's impossible to change things once they have been written on paper. I pop the cap and have them write a few things on the force card. i hold the cap and they hand me the marker...recap and table the marker.......then I just have them hold the deck and card....shuffle up till happy and I rub the sharpie logo and blammo.
Another funny thing I do is a deck stab with the sharpie. First, force card, then have them stab the deck with the sharpie. Have them cut the deck where they put the pen. They don't find the card..but you say that the pen found the card....point out the printing and get ready for some great reactions...the reveal just kills!
