Q: What is your Return Policy?
A: We stand behind all of our products! If you have a question regarding a prop or effect, we will do our best to answer your question (without tipping the secret of course.) Bear in mind that you are buying the secret. Part of the intrinsic value of an item is its working secret. For this reason we recommend you be careful when selected an item for purchase. If the item you order is found defective in materials or workmanship, then we will replace it immediately upon return. We never charge you for back ordered items, they are charged only when they are shipped. (top)
Q: Why are the slips in the Technicolor Prediction
board so tight?
A: When new, the prediction slips are a tight fit since they will loosen with use. Use your thumbnail along the creases to "work them in." This should help. You will find that after a *lot* of use the slips become too loose and will need replacing. (top)
Q: What is the difference between the standard
and upgrade sets of McAbee Rings?
A: It's a little like the difference between cups and ball sets. Cheap or expensive doesn't affect the effect. I prefer the upgrade set because the design makes the handing a tad easier, and I like the look and feel of nickel silver, as opposed to chromed base metal. Both sets work great.
If there is no budget problem I would take the upgrade set in a heartbeat. Reason is since you possibly will not do the effect frequently the upgrade set is a little more forgiving in handling. If there is a financial issue then take the standard set and practice a little harder before each performance. The chrome will not chip off with normal use. In the picture you see the Upgrade on the left and the Standard on the right. (top)
The upgrade rings are made by master craftsman James P. Riser just for Magikraft
Studios. The bracelets are solid nickel silver and have no plating to wear
nor chip off of the surface, they are fine jewelry and even finer magic.

Q: Is there anything I can do to "tune up" my Cardiographic
before performing it?
A: Yes. You can download my "Tuning Cardiographic" data. It is a .pdf file and requires the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print . (top)
Q: Can I upgrade my Cardiographic to the new
A: Alternative. The Improved version has two different cards, one on each side of the rising piece, and comes with two different give away sheets. I would suggest getting a refill for the improved version, cutting out the rising card (the second card is Two of Hearts) and glue it on the back of your flap. (top)
Q: I cannot find papers for Undivided, where
can I get them?
A: The effect will work with pretty much any cigarette papers, you just have to be careful not to allow any moisture to get on the restoration packet or it will stick together. I have, in a pinch, used Rizla papers. I carefully pry open the container, remove all the papers, trim the glue band off each one with a rule and exacto knife, interleave the papers again, replace them in the container and reglue it. Or get them from our shop. (top)
Q: Some of the red cards in the Ghost Deal are
duplicated should it be like that?
A: No, our supplier made a mistake with one batch, send me an email telling me which cards are duplicated and I will mail you the correct replacements. (top)
