"One of my all time favorite effects." -Peter Nardi

"What a visually stunning moment of magic - that is going straight into my act." -Nick Einhorn

"This is the evolution we have been waiting for. Why it took so long I do not know but this is how a pen through card should look." -Alan Rorrison

Even after I pull the signed card out of my wallet in an envelope etc etc, they just keep asking.... but how did you do that pen thing!" -Sean Goodman

S.T.C. (Sharpie Through Card)

Peter Nardi has created an up to date version of Rob Bromley's classic Cigarette Through Card effect. Making it an effect that every magician should own and perform.

Imagine if you could penetrate a signed card with a regular Sharpie and then hand both items out completely unharmed!

Peter Nardi's S.T.C is a visual masterpiece. The Sharpie just seems to melt in to the card. Each S.T.C is crafted by the worlds finest playing card engineer Rob Bromley and is beautiful in both design and functionality.

One of the great things about STC is it plays fantastically as a standalone effect or as part of almost any card routine (Ambitious card etc.).

Peter Nardi Designed STC for his own performances and has used it in all sorts of performing situations. STC is perfect for Strolling Performers, Street Magicians, Table Hoppers & Mix 'N' Mingle.

Peter Nardi's S.T.C is easy to do, has an instant reset and comes complete with custom gimmick and full instructional DVD.

Brilliant! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 18th, 2013
As a street magician, I am very hesitant to look at effects that involve gimmicks. I don't like having to carry them and I prefer to keep my act impromptu. Every now and then an effect comes along that makes me rethink my position.

STC is a very well thought out effect that packs a lot of punch. I have gotten some of my best reactions with this effect. The provided gimmick is of extremely high quality construction. It should last a very long time and perform flawlessly. It seems to be very durable. A little TLC should ensure that this gimmick will last a lifetime.

The instruction on the DVD is not bad. It presents a couple of different handlings. A little more attention could have been paid to getting in and out of the effect, but anyone who has done any card work will have no issues figuring this out for themselves.

Within a couple of performances I developed my own original handling that allows me to start and end clean. This effect now has a permanent spot in my routine.

Good Trick but Wore out on me Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 4th, 2013
I honestly love this trick ive used it everywhere i go and have got amazing reactions. The only bad thing about this trick would have to be that if you use the gimmick alot THE SECRET ends up being very noticable. But im sure this is because ive performed this about 200 times. Honestly i feel its overpriced knowing it just brings one Gimmick. I will not be buying this again unless price is dropped. So if your a street magician like me i advise you dont use it too much or THE SECRET will be obvious. But overall this affect is amazing, I EVEN FELL FOR IT

Very genious and well thought of trick. Its a little noisy but if you practive it for about 10 minutes the noise is gone and the trick looks better than on the video. I highly recommend this trick. Its so amazing and the angles are great and its just all around a perfect job. I love it!

Sharpie through card Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 14th, 2013
Great trick, but as you read needs a gimmick. If you are good with using cards this trick is easy to do and seems like gimmick will last long, but like all tricks must practice at least some time before showing it off

Simple and effective Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 5th, 2013
I only buy magic tricks that I cannot figure out how it's done within 10 minutes of seeing it performed. This one had me a little baffled. When I received it, I figured out the method easily and with a little help from magician's wax was able to perform with ease. This is a GREAT trick and if performed correctly really amazes spectators because you give them the signed card with NO HOLE. GREAT TRICK!

The best! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 16th, 2013
A thing of real beauty-- this one gets gasps of astonishment and is such fun to do! You'll want to have this one with you always. It can be used as an effect in its own right, as part of an ambitious card or other signed card routine. Beautifully made, incredibly visual. Looks like a real miracle, leaves the sharpie and card in their hand, and fools everyone. The trick of the year, imho!

Well made Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 7th, 2014
I bought this out of curiosity; it is an updated version of the cigarette thru card. Gimmick is well made, but in time will wear out. As much as I like it, I don't think I'll use it in my routines....to me, the effect versus the hassle of getting the gimmick out of the deck, is not worth adding to my routines. Five stars for the well made gimmick, but for practicality and longevity I give it a "no go".

great!!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 28th, 2013
I like to use this as a trow away gag, I think this was a suggestion by Greg wilson moving into another trick after using the gimmick rather then ending with it.. You may find many ways to use this, Great trick and gimmick...
