I love it! I strongly recommend you also get Psypher. Cut the psypher gimmick to the size of a
playing card, insert it into a new deck (remove some cards as necessary), seal the deck and you are
ready for some of the most amazing magic ever! I do a routine where I say "before lie detector
machines, people were trained to be lie detectors. In fact, people make better lie detectors than
machines, it was just too expensive to get them trained. I was fortunate to stumble across an
extensive military training program on lie detection and studied it for 8 months." I have them
write a card prediction without me seeing it, fold it up, and place it in their pocket. I then ask
them a series of questions where they can choose to tell the truth or lie. The only rule is they
need to look me in the eyes. Whether they tell the truth or lie, I get their card every time. Both
the wonder sealer and psypher are definite "must haves".

I bought this device a month ago, and finally had the chance to use it the other night. It does
exactly as it describes, and the instructions are well thought out and explained. I would suggest,
in order to get a nice snug fit, to seal each side of the ends you are sealing first, and then seal
the entire length of the box. I found sometimes the 'slack' on the plastic would loosen up, if I
placed the entire side onto the device, without first sealing the ends.
It comes with
enough plastic to keep you going for a while, but thankful that the refills are available too. This
is one device I will be using for a lot of my tricks. Nothing cleaner than showing a sealed deck
and a 'supposedly' unaltered deck!

I’m 61 going on 83 or so it seems. I find this difficult to get that nice tight fit like the decks
you buy from the store. When you’re all fingers and shaking ones at that they look really bad. I
guess I’m going to have to find some one to do this for me. Well at least I have the “Wonder
My whole purpose was to protect older decks and new decks that I have purchased that
were not cellophane wrapped.

Haven’t been able to seal anything yet
I started buying cards for my son to collect about 8 years ago. Back then he would open them,
shuffle a few times and then put them back. Sadly as time has gone on we realised he shouldn't have
opened them if he was to be a serious collector.
I tried the razor and cutting from the
bottom, but that wasn't pretty so I searched for options to try and reseal some of the packs and
stumbled on the wonder sealer.
As I am currently travelling int he US (I'm from UK) I
ordered one delivered to my hotel. Tried it last night on a pack of Bicycles I carry and wow.
First time lucky. With a bit of care I got the cellophane tight and the pack looked brand new.
Sealed down the side first then the ends. I even sat the pack on its face and back which I think
helped shrink the cellophane to tighten it.
I'm really pleased I will be able to seal up
some of the opened decks to preserve them.
This product helps make impossible card tricks possible.Well worth the money.
Great product. I've struggled with other 'cut and glue' options out there, and this was a
game-changer. While the wraps don't have the red strip that says 'bicycle' on them, it's pretty easy
to take one off of the pack you're re-wrapping and use that.
This works really well, makes
tight wraps, and I was honestly surprised how easy it was to use.
4/5 because the plastic
housing seems really flimsy. Other than that, no complaints.
The product is a good tool.
Let it warm up 10/15 min and it does exactly what is said.
difficulty. Just difficult to feel which side of the plastic is inside and what is outside to be
able to open it easily. Also, it comes only in US plug.
It is a good buy, some refills can help
if you are going to use it a lot.
Have only used this a few times, however when thought out in advance, the effect is amazing!
If you perform for some of the same people, get someone to sign a card for you and reseal it in
I got a great reaction from it!
There are other ways to re-seal a deck (like an iron on the lowest setting, maybe with some cloth
over it), but it's tough to do without burning yourself. Even the Wonder Sealer can be a little
tricky, but once you get used to using it, the small size and low heat makes this much easier to
work with and not burn yourself.
It might take a couple of tries to get used to this; it
did for me, at least. You might tear some of the cellophane or get a bad seal/loose wrap the first
couple of times. It would be nice if there were a video showing the Wonder Sealer in use. I don't
have the "Routines With Wonder Sealer" DVD (at least not yet), so I don't know if they have
something like that on the DVD... it would also be nice if the two were sold as a package deal.
I'd recommend picking up some extra deck seals and cellophane with this, both of which Penguin
also offers as of this writing.
As subtleties to sell the "factory sealed deck," for
heaven's sake resist the temptation to remove the ad cards. Also hold on to the "hang tabs" used to
hang the decks from a hook in most drugstores etc., and reattach them to the re-sealed deck. Also
prepare your routine around the fact that it might take some time for most people to get the deck
unsealed; have a knife handy and/or be prepared to fill the time with interesting patter. Otherwise
the time spent fumbling can kill your momentum.
This is a little pricey for basically a
tiny heater and some plastic wrap, but it is a unique product with a ton of obvious (and some
