The Clipped Card
Briefly, you show five playing cards together and point out that the red King is clearly in the middle of the five cards. You offer the backs of the cards to the spectator and ask him to clip the king with a paper clip. Because of the optical illusion, most people will be unable to clip the King.
At this point, you can give the trick to the spectator so he can perform it for his friends and family. And of course, the card has your website and phone number printed on it so anyone who views the trick can think of you when they want to hire a magician.
The cards will need to be output in color on a color inkjet or laser printer, and you will have to print both sides of your card stock, which can take some experimenting to get right. You print four cards to a standard letter page and then cut these apart. The final cards are professional-looking and attractive.
Taking Care of Business
The overall concept is a good one and with this kit, Kipp Sherry provides everything that you need to learn how to make the trick and perform it and print out your own cards. If you can use a giveaway to promote your business, Kings Fool is worth a look.
