First of all, the effect is good and fairly easy to accomplish. There is a little bit of one-time
setup, then you'll need to create a number of gimmicks if you are going to use this as shown with
the card signed. Unfortunately, they only give you three cards to work with and three name tags, so
if you're buying this thinking you'll use it tonight (as I did) you'll be very wrong. A quick trip
to the office supply store got me the name tags I needed, but I didn't have the special deck. You
CAN use a regular deck, and Cameron mentions he'll teach you how in the DVD but never does. You just
have to double the name tags on the card and the backs won't show through, so you can make a regular
deck work to save a little bit of money.
For an effect like this (using a signed card),
they should have included enough gimmicks to allow you to do the trick at least five times. It's not
asking too much and wouldn't have added to the cost of production measurably. Or they should give
you an idea in the description to go ahead and order this and that with it so you are ready to
perform when you get it. Still, the effect is good and laypeople love it, so you won't be sorry you
added it to your set.

If your like me and wear a name tag at gigs, this trick will come in handy. It is super easy to do
and making the gimmick only takes 10-20 seconds max. Although they dont provide you with much
gimmicks, you can always make your own and will barely cost you anything.
Do yourself the favor
and invest in this trick. you wont regret it!

Turning their signed card into your name tag, that has been in full view from the beginning, is one
of the strongest card tricks you can perform.
Cameron Francis nailed it with this release
by adding extra magical moments and turning it into a full blown performance piece.
My Name Is" gold for workers performing at restaurants, banquets, walk around gigs, etc.
But, it's also for Hobbyists! Because a name tag is a common object, anywhere a hobbyist likes
to perform, they can put on a name tag and entertain and amaze people with magic.
because everyone has had to put a name tag on at an event and they usually forget to take it off
afterwards. People see them all the time, so it's inconspicuous wherever you are.
you are a street magician, you know the toughest part is getting people to stop and watch magic. By
wearing a name tag, people lower their guard because you look official. It makes it much easier to
get people to stop and watch.
A++++ on this release!

I did not want to comment until I had a chance to actually perform this for multiple audiences. I
can proudly say that this works nicely and that I actively use it. The DVD explains everything
nicely and it performs exactly as portrayed on the demo video. Making the gimmick was extremely easy
and I had no trouble quickly making a bunch as giveaways for some upcoming restaurant and strolling
gigs coming up. Staples had the exact name tags needed. This is very well thought out, fun and easy

Yea, you heard what I said. This trick did not fool me. As I was watching the demo, I figured it out
and too my surprising, I was about 99% correct.
Now, of course, you're all wondering why I
bought the trick and even rate it 5 stars. It is very simple. This is trick might of been easy to
figure out for me, but it would be very hard to come up with. Just because I myself had figured out
an amazing trick does not mean it is a bad one. I purchased the effect to not only find out if I was
correct but to also see the way Cameron does the effect and his handlings. And I have to say,
Cameron came up with a great effect here! I have always been a fan of Cameron after I bought his 2
effects "Corner & Exposure" a year ago (which I highly recommend) and up to today, all of his
effects were great and even inspired me to create tricks like his such as my trick "VisMik".
I do not want you to listen to the bad reviews if they come. This is EASY and VERY VISUAL, what
more could you want! I do understand that this tutorial has some flaws because he doesn't teach you
a part that he said he would, but it is quite simple to understand just be thinking about it. And
also the other complaints about refills, well, I understand that money can be hard to come by
sometimes, but the refills for at least 100 more times shouldn't cost you more than $15 which is a
lot for the price. In the end I highly recommend it and it is probably one of the best gimmicks of

The gimmick ends up being an EXTREMELY thick mess and the card they sign can't be held in their
hands (you hold the deck as they initial or sign the card). Also, everything you get can be bought
cheap, so this could be an instant download for the non-lazy magician.
If those aren't reasons
to stay away, then get it. Don't see myself adding it to my repertoire.

I tried to follow the directions but man it was tough...I don't know if it was me or what...it took
me forever to understand how it works...just seems like he was going so fast explaining it...but
again I am not the sharpest tool in the shed....Plus when the tag stuck it clicks and kinda gives
away how it sticks to the tag...

I like this trick I only give it four stars because there should have been more Gimmicks included, I
say this because I got this trick one day before going on a cruise and I did not find the right name
tags in Australia or New Zealand. But it's still worth buying. I ordered a deck of cards with my
name and info printed on the back and left room for writing the name of the card, so I don't have to
make any more gimmicks and people have my info on the card at the end of the trick.

Could be better. There is some card control techniques you'll need to know in order to pull this
trick off. I will be practicing them for a little while before I can perform this trick(I'm still
new). If you're already a decent card handler, then I'd suggest you get this.
watched the DVD 3 times now, trying to find the section he said he would get back to, but he never
does. You get enough supplies to perform the trick 3 times, and in the DVD he says he'll show you
how to make them from a regular deck, and left that part out.
I don't know if this will be
edited out, but I'd suggest you get a deck with white backs, before you buy this.
about 20 years since I've stopped actively practicing, I just started bartending and I thought it
would be cool to do a little magic behind the bar. Being that we're required to have a name tag,
this seemed like the perfect trick. Can't wait till I get it down.

Cameron has done it. For all you strolling magicians, you know how awkward it can be to approach a
crowd of, say, 6 or 8 people either at a convention or in a bar. You're a stranger interrupting
their conversation. It's rude and you have to get their attention without BEING rude.
Here's your answer. And it's perfect. You're the only person there wearing this cheesy name tag.
You can even just stand there, outside the periphery of their circle and someone will undoubtedly
ask who you are. You don't have to interrupt them at all. THEY do all the work for you.
Once you launch into the trick you have everyone's undivided attention. You're off and running.
And it's a great trick. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the few mistakes Cameron
makes in the tutorial. He should have corrected them before the final decision was made to release
I have been waiting for a trick like this for years. It's super easy to perform,
highly visual, gets outstanding reactions and sets you up for the rest of your set. And, the reset?
I'm going to say it again. For strolling and bar magic, it doesn't get any
better than this. Get it now.
