I’m going to let you in on a secret: Top card magicians use marked decks. Every single time they perform. They use the decks in ways you’ve never even thought of.

  1. Some amateur magicians are afraid of using marked cards. They’re afraid of getting caught. But here's the thing: NOBODY ever gets caught because a spectator sees the marks; magicians ONLY get caught when they STARE AT THE MARKS FOR TOO LONG. So, we designed marks that are bigger, more visible, yet ORGANICALLY hidden in the design.


  2. Our marked deck is also the most affordable, which is a GAME CHANGER because now you can handle the marked deck just like you would any other old cheap deck. You can have cards signed. You can tear them up. You can throw them around. Do whatever tricks you'd normally do.


…and speaking of tricks, when you buy even ONE deck of our Marked Cards, you're going to get TWO FREE, FULL-LENGTH DOWNLOADS showing you a bunch of BRAND NEW effects that can be done with these marked cards.

The first download features me. Basically, I read through all the old marked deck books, pulled out the best four tricks I could find, and then worked with my Vegas friends to modernize and improve them. Every one of these 4 tricks has the power to KILL. Just look at the demo video and see for yourself.

The second download features Jon Armstrong. He's one of those card pros who uses marked cards ALWAYS. Seriously, if you've seen him do card tricks, the cards were marked. He's going to teach you advanced marked card technique. He's going to reveal how marked cards can DRAMATICALLY improve the tricks you already perform. He'll show you how marked cards can act as a failsafe in case your trick goes wrong. He’ll show you how marked cards are the single most powerful weapon you've overlooked.

THREE MORE RANDOM DECK BONUSES:

1) Our Marked Cards are now printed on the U.S. Playing Card Company’s ELITE STOCK. (Previously the Elite Stock was only available for unmarked Bicycle cards.) These cards are flexible, snappy, and durable. They offer a soft yet supple handling with smooth edges and a traditional cut.

2) Along with 2 identical jokers, the Marked Cards come with a bonus double-backer and a blank-facer.

3) The Marked Cards come stacked in Mnemonica order. So if you do memory work, just throw in a couple false shuffles and you’re ready to perform miracles, right out of the box. (If you have no idea what I'm talking about here, don't worry about it. Doesn't change the cards in any way. ;)

This marked deck might be the single most powerful tool a card magician could every use. If you’re serious about card magic, you can’t afford NOT to pick up a couple decks.

-Rick Lax

PS: I PROMISE after you watch the free download with Jon Armstrong, any fears you might have about getting "caught" will VANISH. Seriously, he's going to show you how to use marked cards the RIGHT way so nobody even IMAGINES that they MIGHT be marked.

Oh man, where do I begin? These cards are amazing!! I got the download two days ago and have watched them both through a couple times. Rick does a great job as always of explaining every little detail about the cards. There is an added little something to this deck that just goes to show how much they put into this deck! You won't know what it is until you watch his video but it is an awesome little surprise! Rick shows his touches on some classic marked card work as well as some added subtleties from others.
I received the cards and immediately performed one of the tricks which is to be done from the unopened pack. It went over really well and I followed that with some of his other tricks taught. They are very simple yet extremely fooling! The tricks can be magical or make you look like a memory genius! You are told many times, if you don't use this as a marked deck, no one will know it's a marked deck and that is super important!
The second video with the awesome instructor Jon Armstrong is great as well! He goes over some dos and donts of a marked deck and how he uses his. He says if you see him, he always has a marked deck in his hands, and now with these cards, it's possible for you too!! They are extremely affordable and my biggest recommendation would be to buy them in bulk. That is the best value you can get for a pack of marked cards! I can't see myself not having at least one of these decks with me at all times when I'm performing or just out and about. There are so many tricks out there that can be improved simply by having a marked deck.
Overall, I am extremely happy with this deck of cards and I know that you will be too! Rick and penguin have done such a great job with these and have shown how much they care for us as performers by releasing this amazing deck at such a great price! Products like this are why I have always been and will always be, a penguin guy!

My search for the perfect marked deck is over! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 27th, 2017
(This review is for Marked Cards)
Lately I’ve been basically collecting marked decks, trying to find the one that works best for me. I should mention that my eyes aren’t as sharp as they used to be, so I’m concerned about the biggest giveaway that you’re using marked cards: an awkward, long squinting stare and the back of a playing card.

There are some really cool features to some of the available decks (like knowing the next card or how many have been cut from the deck) if you’re interested in using a specific stack. But I’m an Osterlind stack guy and I’m not ready to put in the work to learn a different system. So I want a marked deck I can use every day with the stack I already know. And it’s worth mentioning that all of those other decks retail at 25 to 35 bucks a piece.

With very little practice, I can read the backs of these cards at arm’s length, yet the marks are well-hidden enough that I have no problem casually handing them to a spectator. Of all of the marked decks i’ve tried (including Luke Jermay’s Marksman Deck, Andy Nyman’s The Code and the Ultimate Marked Deck), this one is the easiest to read and, by far, the most affordable. I’m going to buy a brick and make them my everyday cards!

The only downside I see, comparing them to some of the more expensive decks, is that the only information on the backs of each of these cards is the value/suit of that card. But the values are clear, easy to read and well-hidden in multiple locations. And that is just perfect for me.

Congrats to Rick Lax for creating the first truly affordable marked deck!

Great deck! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 3rd, 2017
I have used many marked decks in the past and apart from the Phoenix marked deck, which is not so subtly marked, it is the easiest deck to read. I wear reading glasses but I am still able to clearly see the cleverly disguised markings without them. Nice stuff here, team!

My only complaint is that for some of the routines that I do, I need a SEALED BLUE deck and a SEALED RED deck that are pre-stacked. This product is not offered in BLUE BACKS... Please! Make them in blue too!!

MARKY MARK ...and the Funky Bunch of Cards Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 24th, 2017

I "feel the vibrations" and they are good!!!
I love marked cards...people think we used them anyway so why the hell not use them all the time...and now you can!
The one thing that stands out to me about this product is the obvious attention to detail that Penguin has paid to this deck. The marks are everywhere and ridiculously easy to see. Plus, they are formed in a way that deceives the eye and integrated into the natural pattern of the Maiden back seamlessly. They are disguised within the twists and turns of the image so the spectators eye casually passes right by them, whereas you can see them in an instant.
Another great feature about this deck is the price. I no longer have to be precious in handling my marked cards. These are so inexpensive that I can use them as my every day deck. I can toss them around, tear them up and even stick 'em in my mouth and not care.
If you are not familiar with marked deck work, Rick Lax provides some wonderful time tested effects to get you started that he and his cohorts have structured brilliantly. Rick is a great teacher and explains everything clearly and concisely. The training is over an hour and all of it is solid.
I will most definitely use these cards in my shows because they are great quality, have all the features I could ever want, and most importantly... they barely put a dent in my card buying budget!

Say Yes to the Deck Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 18th, 2017

Finally someone has found a solution to using marked cards on a regular basis. Marked decks are a great tool to have on hand for the experienced card guy, but usually are cost prohibitive to use on a regular basis, being reserved for those "special shows".

Now, there is nothing to fear on the price tag as well as visibility of the marks (if that was another conviction on using marked cards (too hard to read or too easy to see))

First, the markings are well placed and are visible to the magi at an arms length but also well enough for across the table without being found out.

Second, the two instructional videos are phenomenal. Rick Lax's is about how to read the markings plus a few effects. Jon Armstrong brings his typical style to a couple tricks in the other.

My understanding is that there may be a pricebreak by the brick and if so, this may be the only deck I ever use again. Otherwise, it's still well priced to be used for every gig and not just those "special" ones.

Printed on Maiden back by USPCC in a full tuck case (that's marked as well).

Most affordable marked bicycle deck Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 17th, 2017

The markings on this deck are great. You can get a peek on several different points on the back. They are very easy to read when you know what to look for. They are very affordable, however they probably won't be my everyday deck, I'm cheap. Rick Lax and Jon Armstrong teach some great effects and tips on using marked cards in the downloads. If your in the market for an affordable marked deck with a great design that won't draw suspicion, I highly recommend this one.

A NORMAL DECK...NO, REALLY! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 17th, 2017
(This review is for Marked Cards)
I came up in a time when the go-to of marked decks was the Deland Automatic Deck; problematic because of the strip, and difficult because of the marking sizes - problems solved!

I should start by saying I am in no way a 'card guy'. I do, however, appreciate a good deck of cards, gimmicked or no. This deck will replace all my card decks except the stripper and has probably doubled my force capabilities.

I could not be more pleased with the capabilities of this deck, the ease of card recognition, and the myriad possibilities it presents. The brick price for specialized decks is pretty sweet as well... :-)

Give your other card decks to an up and coming amateur in your local club; you won't need them anymore.

Good but Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 16th, 2017
Finally an inexpensive deck of marked cards. I agree with other comments that there are way to many marks on the deck - it is overkill! I handed the deck to a friend and within one minute he spotted the marks. Also the instruction video was so so. I will still be able to use with judicious handling and proper spectator management. Are they worth the price absolutely- just know the limitations.

The cards are amazing. I carry them around all the time. Rick Lax routines are easy and appear to be real magic. I have a restaurant owner who tries to figure out my magic & doesn't let up. Well I did the marked cards with invisible deck routine and it left him SILENT !
What more can I say.

A no brainer Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 22nd, 2017
This is a fantastic marked deck for two reasons.
1. The marks are super easy to read. Even during a ribbon spread.
2. They are dirt cheap.

I've used hover card plus in this deck without changing the gaff to a maiden back and you cannot tell the difference.
The only marked deck I like more is the ultimate marked deck, but at this price it's a no brainer!
