I almost made a HUGE mistake by trying to save five bucks by purchasing this trick on eBay sans the
DVD, but wisdom prevailed. While the cliche' says that "You are not paying for the trick but rather
the secret," very few experienced magicians will purchase a trick if they don't already have a
fairly good understanding of the operation.
But with Daryl's Presto Printo, I'd argue that
you are shelling out the Jackson bill for neither the "secret" nor card packet itself, but rather
the Master Class on DVD with Daryl. It took me about an hour before I was compfortable with the
first test (our eight-year-old), and perhaps another hour before it was up to wife-level. Both loved
While I could have duplicated the effect with just the cards, there would be no way I
could have duplicated the smooth presentation without the DVD. I learned one brand new (to me)
technique I like very much, and one other I expect to use soon for another trick. I also enjoyed the
"bonus tracks" where Daryl showed some great variations that various people have come up with since
the trick first debuted.

This is a good effect primarily because it includes misprint cards of the sort that most spectators
will have never seen before. That definitely adds to the reactions you'll get.
good thing about the effect is that you end totally clean. There are no gaff cards. In fact, there
are barely any moves. It's mostly just presentation, and remembering the sequence of the misprint
The only moves you'll need to execute are forcing a card, and a flustration count.
A word about the latter: it really isn't deceptive. You DON'T want to call attention to it at all.
Don't say, "Look, every card is blank, front and back", because if you insist they look at what
you're doing, they're going to see that you keep showing them the same card over and over again.
Just do it casually as you patter.
This trick is a lot like the Wild Card but with a much more stunning effect. A spectator first sees
the nice new normal cards but are blown away when one by one they all get screwed up. If you are
thinking about this, check out the Wild Card too and see which one fits in with your routine better.
I personally prefer this one because of the great wow factor. Pick it up and I'm sure you'll love
This effect has like 8 tricks together, so you are not just getting one card trick but 8. One
building on each other very worth it. I love it. Add to cart.
one of the best blank-printed effects out there......it's clean and the mess ups are comical
This is a great trick for those who don't particularly like card magic but feel you must add a few
card tricks to your close up routine. I think cards get overdone so I look for something catchy
that isn't about "finger-busting" gratification, but rather, a trick that will entertain the paying
customers. I like this one!
This is an excellent effect. It gets huge reactions every time. It is alittle expensive, but well
worth the money.
The trick is basically self-working. There is a 'count' that has to be
performed, but that is it. I love you daryl!!!!
ps not literaly. im a guy
This trick is wonderful! Watch the demo to see what I mean! The trick is a bit expensive, but it is
fun to do! It requuires only one very simple "slight of hand" if you will (i don't even know if you
can call it that) The trick is basically self working! What is also wonderful about this is that
their are many steps to this effect so you get the audiance into it! This trick is so fun to do!
just make sure you don't ruin the "printing cards" Because they are expensive to buy! Great trick!
Family freaked when i showed them it and thought it was very cool, get now!
I recieved Presto Printo on Christmas Eve and I opened it right away! I love this effect! I'm an
intermediate magician and is pefect for my level! Thumbs up Daryl. :)
This trick is entertaining, and soild. And you're left 100% clean with everything examinable at the
end with nothing to hide. And even though it's technically a packet trick, the way Daryl teaches you
in the instructional DVD its much more using a reg. deck to start off with. I cannot say enough
about the trick.
