"The Flat Pack appearance was pure eye candy, then Jason pulled the cards out of it and I could have punched him it was so good!!"
- Ben Williams

"This is the ultimate 'Packs Small, Plays Big' effect!"
- Eric Jones

"I've seen a lot of gimmicks out there. Some are ingenious but fragile. Others are sturdy but limited. Flat Pack is one of the few that has the best of both worlds: strong gimmick for strong effects."
- Jeremy Griffiths

Created by the genius behind "Double Take," Jason Knowles created Flat Pack to be a surrealistic visual opener and closer that gets you in and out of your set with flair.

Imagine showing your spectators a neatly folded tuck case pulled from your wallet. With one move, the folded case expands from a crimped piece of cardboard to a fully functional box of playing cards. What's even more impossible to comprehend is that all 52 playing cards are kept flawlessly inside!

Flat Pack turns the ordinary action of pulling out and putting away a deck of cards into an impossible moment. Clearly the box is folded into quarters. Clearly it couldn't possibly fit a full deck of cards. And yet clearly it somehow does exactly that!

Finally, when you've wow'd them with enough overly ambitious or extraordinarily triumphant enough card magic, you simply take your cards, place them back in the tuck, fold it back up into your wallet, and wait as your audience gasps and stares at your final miracle. It's impossible for them to understand how those cards fit in that folded case. It's even more impossible for them to forget that moment of magic that you've just created.

What you receive in your box of Flat Pack:

  • Fully made gimmick ready for you to use out of the box.
  • Resets in seconds.
  • Takes up little pocket space, packs flat plays big!
  • An hour of expert instruction taught by Jason Knowles.
  • A unique method to turn ordinary moments into something truly unforgettable.
  • The ability to master and bend space!
Start strong, end stronger. Play it big with Jason Knowles' Flat Pack!

"Flat Pack is the best opener I have seen in a long time... It visually kicks the back of your eyes and sends you packing! It's a casual yet a professional piece of magic and perfect for all situations... I can't wait to start using this."
- Chris Webb

"Flat Pack is my favorite opener for table-hopping and walk-around! It LITERALLY packs small and plays big, and it has that perfect 'haha that's cute... Wait? WTF just happened!?' moment (twice). It's as if Jason Knowles and Tony Stark had a cardboard-baby. The playing card box equivalent to the Iron Man suit!"
- Kim Anderson

"Flat Pack is an amazing surprise to open any card routine! Can't wait to play with it!!"
- Tobias Dostal

"Flat Pack is truly something I will want to use every day. Clever in the mechanics and the construction. Absolutely hard hitting!"
- Think Nguyen

So disappointing Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 14th, 2019
I was really hoping this would be well made and work like the video and guess what neither of those are true. When I drop it like the video says, the thing doesn't fully open and left with what looks like a deformed card. Misleading promo video like usual. Really had my hopes up for this one. I'm fully honest in all my reviews in magic and hope the next version is way better.

It seems like all new magic is made with elastic. Tension, release tension, and the elastic does the rest. What ever happened to well made products with test and quality control?

Really good Report this review

My only issue is that the gimmick is quite fragile and should have been made with thin plastic or some other durable material.

Excellent not perfect Report this review

(This review is for Flat Pack by Jason Knowles)
First this a great effect, practical in the real world. Not difficult but takes a bit of confidence.
There are a few issues that are fair to mention up front. The gimmick is made of a thick paper and an elastic component. The paper won't last forever. I keep mine in a little yellow pay envelope for protection. Also that is how I present the trick (something precious in it's own little package). You would not want to jam this in a pocket with other stuff in it.
The elastic will need repair at some point. Jason has very thorough instructions on the FB group about how to repair and I think these are in the main instructions as well.
Many if not all of the gimmicks will need a slight modification to open properly. Jason has detail and easy instructions for how to do this on the FB group and it is a few seconds work. I can understand someone saying this should work out of the box. It should. I think this is something that Jason was making for himself and some compromises had to be made to have them massed produced. At any rate I totally get not wanting to mess with gimmicks. In this case I made the effort for an amazing effect.

Great Opener and Closer! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 18th, 2019
I really enjoy this effect! As with any gimmick made with this material.. it is going to break. But the visual of the deck popping open is awesome and catches your spectators off guard!

My new opener ;) Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 5th, 2019
Really happy to get this gimmick, but unfortunately after practicing 4 or 5 times it broke, way to fragile that's why the reason of 4 stars.

After 5 minutes it was fully repaired. (Super easy to repair)

Really loved the online instructions, Jason it's very meticulous about how to do a new gimmick and how to repair it.

For me it's the best opening and finishing trick I've got at the moment. When performing for the family to test the impact it was awesome. It's really mind blowing.

Amazing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 30th, 2019
This is really great. Effect looks incredible and it is such an opener.

It brings a deck into any situation in such a casual and magical way.

LOVE IT.

Wish it was made on reds. And some corners are peeling here and there. Small peanuts. Take good care of it... and or buy a couple.

That is what I did.

KUDOS and one of the best effects I got in a LONG time.
