Who sells full range of individual gaffed cards ?

Postby CraigMitchell » January 12th, 2009, 3:12 am

I remember there being a dealer at Blackpool last year who carried all manner of individual gaffed cards for sale ? Anyone know their name ?

If you are still looking for gaffed cards try 'Cards By Martin' out here in Lancaster, California USA - I hope he's still around....he once told me that he wasn't allowed to die since nobody could make these things after he's gone. Neil(sp?) Lester IS 'Cards by Martin' he makes all of them and custom cards as well -

Another place in California is The Magic Apple magic shop in Studio City - they seem to have more than most.

Hank Lee sells various card gaffs, including a deck of assorted gaffs.

Once, when I ordered such a deck from him and it didn't have something I needed (blank face, double-back, something like that), I emailed him and he sent me a few of what I needed gratis.

Neil is still alive and kicking. In fact, he is currently making some gaffs for me. Other sources for gaffed cards are Gary Plants and Marty Grams. I am sure that a quick trip through Google will get you to their websites.

I can vouch for Gary Plants' work -- he made some custom cards for me a few years ago, and the quality was outstanding.

Craig, dont bother with the Magic Apple..........they deem the postage too expensive to South Africa ( even though you pay!)............that was my experience anyway, neither were subsequent e mails replied to.

www.cards4magic.co.uk defenitely seems to have the largest range of poker sized gaffed cards that ive come across. ( albeit a wee pricey)

And of course Im very happy with the custom work Cards by Martin has done for me.

I happened to run across this site last week. First time I've ever seen a company offer completely customizable card-faces of your own design in a do-it-yourself format.

Click on "Online Card Builder" in the left-menu.
