Well when you guys do your ambitious card routines, do you keep the cards that are signed and bent (pop up move)? What do you do with them if you don't reuse them?

I give them to the spec as a keepsake, if they don't want it then I put it back and keep using it

i haven't tried this yet so i don't know if it would be worthwhile so do w/ it what u will.
how about some sort of small sticker (preferably white or another solid, light color) have the spec sign it and stick it anywhere on the card. when the trick is over u can just peel it off. since good cards are plastic coated anyway it SHOULD peel off easily. if the cards aren't bent beyond repair, u can still use the deck.
like i said, i haven't tried this. i actually just thought of it while reading this post. if anyone tries it, let us know how it works. good luck.
and be "ambitious!"

Eh. Sounds okay, but at about $2 a piece, I can replace ruined cards.

Yeah, I agree Roat. I get cards for like 1.15. Plus, it really makes it stronger with the signature right on the card.

so just don't bend it so much so you can reuse them? Where can you get cards so cheap?

When I practice the Pop-Up move, I can just bend the card back the other way and it's fine. Your not creasing the cards here, just crimping them.

Crimps are only temporary.

Oh! Crimp! So crimping is just bending it slightly, not putting a crease in it huh? :shock:

If not doing signed (for convenience purposes, like having a deck on you when your performing a lot in one location) just don't bend the card so much, and you can get it back to its almost original condition. Your not supposed to seriously bend the card that much anyway....more like a rolling bend.

I get two Bicycle decks at Wal-Mart for $2.97. I usually buy 3 packs at a time (6 decks). With Michigan tax, it's under $10.
