"A clever tool for creative performers. Endless possibilities" - R. Paul Wilson

"SNAPS is just what I wanted. Do virtually any card effect without the taint of card tricks. And much much more. For those who find card tricks redundant or out of place , SNAPS opens a whole new world. It has unlimited uses, a fine double set, and sharp video. I will use these. 5 stars easily" - Marc Salem

"A really great concept, beautifully realised…these cards are fantastic!" - Marc Paul

This isn’t just a gimmick that hides in plain sight. It’s not just two beautiful decks of cards designed to elevate your magic beyond simple tricks. It’s an invitation to more than a dozen different routines and a community of creators using a revolutionary tool that will blow your audience away. This is SNAPS.

You will receive two high-quality sets of cards consisting of gorgeous full-color photos with a secret that is too good to share here. Using these cards you will be able to reveal words, numbers, names, places, playing cards, ESP symbols, anything you want. Both David Jonathan and Dan Harlan teach lots of high impact routines to get you started. But it doesn’t stop there. These cards have built-in psychological forces, bonus features, and an online community where the name of the game is creativity.

In the works for more than a year, SNAPS comes ready to go right out of the box. Perfect for mentalists, magicians, and anyone who wants great reactions. Start taking your old card routines in new and exciting directions. Learn a book test that has multiple climaxes. Have the cards mixed and then reveal your spectator’s name with them doing all the dealing. Have an audience member think of one of the pictures and transform the image inside their own mind. These aren’t ideas to get you creating, these are real effects taught in the download, and that’s just the beginning of where SNAPS will take you.

Best thing in magic since the invention of playing cards Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 30th, 2020
This wonderful tool is the best thing in magic since the invention of playing cards. David and Dan have developed the idea of using images on quality playing card stock into something that is intriguing enough even if you didn't do a trick with them. And boy, can you do some amazing things. The tutorial only scratches the surface.

I can only imagine the amount of work designer Phill Smith has put into all the excellent artwork involved. He deserves a medal.

I've been using a mentalism routine for years using images I've drawn on blank card stock. With a slight modification I can now do it with these cards.

My recommendation is to buy two sets. Just think of the opportunities that opens up for matching and coincidence effects.

May the curse of Mary Malone and her nine blind illegitimate children chase whoever decided to make the video tutorial two hours and forty minutes long so far over the hills of Damnation that the Lord himself can't find him with a telescope. :-) Please, break the tutorial into chapters.

Pretty Close to Great! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 27th, 2020
If you’re like me, you notice a certain segment of any audience have eyes that instantly glaze over when they realize a card trick is about to take place. SNAPS let’s me apply most any effect from the world of cards onto the world of mentalism (and btw, generally less people watch my hands closely in the mentalism world 😁).
There are a lot of effects shared, but this is a utility device to use in so many situations. I love to have three spectators mix the cards, each cut to a card and place it front of them, then secretly look at each card (I never touch anything). I quickly share the easiest prediction for the first spectator’s image they see on their card. For the second spectator, I vaguely share a description of their correct image. And for the third spectator, I place other images face-up claiming to match their image...they don’t, but together the images spell the third spectator’s image — it’s pretty lethal!!!
I left off one ratings star only because there is a coding principle that could have been thought out slightly better (e.g. didn’t need “F“ used redundantly). Overall though, this is a remarkable utility device for mentalism which relies on images, not standard playing cards. Well done guys, thanks!

FINALLY Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 28th, 2020
I saw Dan perform this at Penguin maxx back in October. I have been impatiently waiting for snaps to become available, and MAN!!!!!! Everything about this project is awesome!! The packaging, the details in the two different photo(card) cases, the photos, the effects, everything well thought out and properly executed.

Even if you only use one of the many effects on the download, it’ll be more than worth the purchase cost!!

Already one of my favorite magic purchases of 2020

Biggest Reaction from Spectators Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 3rd, 2021
I am a beginner/intermediate performer new to the hobby. By "performer" I mean for random family and friends. That being said, here is my reaction after practicing with these decks for just over a week:
1. Combining this with other products such as the Mental Die and a spirit bell takes this to a next level. For example, with the Mental Die, I modify the dinner menu trick with spelling out the spectator's first name, and I have never had such a strong reaction to anything I have tried before. With a spirit bell, it is fun to predict a random playing card using the number and suit cards.
2. The tutorial skips over sleights needed to perform some of the more impressive routines, but the length of it already probably prohibited doing tutorials on some of the sleights involved.
3. I wish there was another way to engage and learn than a Facebook group. Not all of us want to be on Facebook.
4.This is about as robust of a product as I could imagine. I can see it used for just about any routine done with regular playing cards.
For this price, I can't imagine a better value for what they put into creating this.

Please Never Stop Printing These! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 2nd, 2020
These cards are so great! I had a similar idea years ago but I couldn't create cards that handled like playing cards.

These are fantastic for so many reasons. They really do open up a nearly infinite number of possibilities.

Lovely idea! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 19th, 2021
This is a great idea...the gradually dawning reveal at the end of most routines is an amazing thing to watch as your audience "gets it"

Some of the routines described seem a bit torturous and a bit similar to "counting card tricks". One gets the idea that some of them were included to pad out the instructions.

But the majority of routines that aren't like that, are killers.

The card markings are a little too subtle for my nearly-60-year-old eyes and the low light situations I usually work in, but they are very clever an extend the uses of these cards a long way.

You can also come up with your own routines as these sets of cards are a true utility item that really do facilitate your imagination to take off.

Highly recommended and a great price!

Snaps is FANTASTIC Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 19th, 2020
I rarely write reviews, but SNAPS deserves to be talked about. The cards are fantastic! They handle great. The system is easy to learn and there is so much you can do with them. SNAPS brings a new dimension to card magic. I highly recommend SNAPS to anyone who loves card magic or mental magic. My only concern is that just like your regular cards, these will wear out with practice and performance. I REALLY hope that they become available to buy as a refill for when that happens.

Elegant, with endless possibilites Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 13th, 2021
The SNAPS decks are so well designed and packaged that I'm damn-near awestruck. I can't recall the last time I had so much fun just playing with a magic product on my own, what's more performing with it. There are an almost inifinte number of tricks and routines you could develop with SNAPS, and the ones that Dave and Dan teach are killer.

There has been a little bit of lowkey disappointment from some buyers that the instant download is 2 and 1/2 hours long with no chapter breaks. This isn't really an issue. It comes with an index of where everything is in the video with corresponding timecode. I'm perfectly fine skipping around as needed.

SNAPS Review Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 27th, 2020
This is something every magician will want to add to their repertoire. It is an amazing system that you can come up with your own effects. Dan and David give you a great amount of tricks to do, but there is so much more to be unlocked with this project. If you think your magic is getting stale, add snaps. It will breathe a breath of fresh life into your magic.
