"If you like this effect and can see yourself using it, you'll be very happy with this product. It's an easy way to add a new card revelation or two to your repertoire."
-Jeff Stone, MagicReviewed.comFull Review
It's the combination of the gimmicked Sharpies and a strong routine that makes this one great...this is the first "smudged' Sharpie that I've seen that actually looks as if you have smeared the printing with your thumb to somehow and apparently spell out the freely chosen playing card.

"This is a nifty revelation of playing card, and it can be used to enhance any number of tricks that involve forcing a card. Reset is instant and pocket management is a non-issue. I can't think of any negatives about this product." -Peter Duffie, Magic Magazine
"I will say that if I were to perform this effect, these are the Sharpies I would use." -CURTIS KAM, M-U-M Magazine
"Very simple to do. Perfect for table-hopping, impromptu magic, bars, close-up, etc. Magic that happens in their hands is always more impressive, and this certainly makes an impression." -David Oliver, Genii Magazine

"A clever use of a Sharpie pen and if you perform any card routine where you get a spectator to sign a card then you might as well use this pen." -Paul Romhany, *Reviews Vanish Magazine
