Permanent DVD Set

Posted on June 11, 2009 by chris ballinger There have been 8 comment(s)

Our best-selling Instant Download is now available as a DVD set with gimmicks!

Permanent is an original effect, where the ink on the side of a marker is rubbed off, making the marker blank on both sides. In a flash, the writing returns. What makes this effect so strong is that an audience member helps rub the ink off of the marker and then uses the marker to sign a card for your next trick.

The DVD covers the new and improved handling of Permanent as well as a three bonus effect, live footage, and audio commentary. The set includes a special gimmicked Sharpie marker manufactured for us by Sanford. We have also included two other secret items that complete the set and make it perfect for walk around settings.


The Permanent routine was designed to fit in seamlessly with your existing selection of tricks. If you have people sign cards or coins in your show you should use Permanent to introduce your pen. If you don't already use a marker in your show, the Permanent DVD covers two excellent routines that require someone to mark a coin or card.

I have been using a home-made version of the gimmick for a while and I'm so happy with the high-quality gimmick that Sanford made up for us. This trick is a huge hit in my walk-around shows. People ask to see it again and again.

    Hey Joshua, You need to take a look at the book "Modern Coin Magic" by J.B. Bobo. It teaches several different switches and if you plan on performing magic with coins, it's a must read.

    Hey Chris, and everyone else from magic geek inc., I think this is the best magic website on the internet. It is very organized, videos are awesome, and most of the tricks are at resonable prices. I’ve bought alot of tricks from Magic Geek, and I’ve performed them, and people enjoyed them. I’ve bought: Invisible Deck, Spikes through coin, Hyrum the Haunted Hanky, Magic Light Bulb, Invisible String, Thumb Tips, Sponge Balls, Dancing Cane, Rising Card, Mini Flag Blendo, Magic Coloring Book, Rope to silk, and Hoppin Spots (best trick ever!). So I must be a magic geek! But anyway I just want to give 2 thumbs up!
