The most clearly marked deck in the world, and affordable BY DESIGN so you can treat them like NORMAL CARDS.
I’m going to let you in on a secret: Top card magicians use marked decks. Every single time they perform. They use the decks in ways you’ve never even thought of.
- Some amateur magicians are afraid of using marked cards. They’re afraid of getting caught. But here’s the thing: NOBODY ever gets caught because a spectator sees the marks; magicians ONLY get caught when they STARE AT THE MARKS FOR TOO LONG. So, we designed marks that are bigger, more visible, yet ORGANICALLY hidden in the design.
- Our marked deck is also the most affordable, which is a GAME CHANGER because now you can handle the marked deck just like you would any other old cheap deck. You can have cards signed. You can tear them up. You can throw them around. Do whatever tricks you’d normally do.
…and speaking of tricks, when you buy even ONE deck of our Marked Cards, you’re going to get TWO FREE, FULL-LENGTH DOWNLOADS showing you a bunch of BRAND NEW effects that can be done with these marked cards.
The first download features me. Basically, I read through all the old marked deck books, pulled out the best four tricks I could find, and then worked with my Vegas friends to modernize and improve them. Every one of these 4 tricks has the power to KILL. Just look at the demo video and see for yourself.
The second download features Jon Armstrong. He’s one of those card pros who uses marked cards ALWAYS. Seriously, if you’ve seen him do card tricks, the cards were marked. He’s going to teach you advanced marked card technique. He’s going to reveal how marked cards can DRAMATICALLY improve the tricks you already perform. He’ll show you how marked cards can act as a failsafe in case your trick goes wrong. He’ll show you how marked cards are the single most powerful weapon you’ve overlooked.
THREE MORE RANDOM DECK BONUSES:
1) Our Marked Cards are now printed on the U.S. Playing Card Company’s ELITE STOCK. (Previously the Elite Stock was only available for unmarked Bicycle cards.) These cards are flexible, snappy, and durable. They offer a soft yet supple handling with smooth edges and a traditional cut.
2) Along with 2 identical jokers, the Marked Cards come with a bonus double-backer and a blank-facer.
3) The Marked Cards come stacked in Mnemonica order. So if you do memory work, just throw in a couple false shuffles and you’re ready to perform miracles, right out of the box. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about here, don’t worry about it. Doesn’t change the cards in any way. ????
This marked deck might be the single most powerful tool a card magician could every use. If you’re serious about card magic, you can’t afford NOT to pick up a couple decks.
PS: I PROMISE after you watch the free download with Jon Armstrong, any fears you might have about getting “caught” will VANISH. Seriously, he’s going to show you how to use marked cards the RIGHT way so nobody even IMAGINES that they MIGHT be marked.
“These are the Best Marked Cards that I own.”
–Roger De Coster
“Finally a marked deck I can use as an everyday deck!”
“The cards are amazing. I carry them around all the time.”
“The marks are ridiculously easy to see, but formed in a way that deceives the eye and integrated into the natural pattern of the back seamlessly.”
“I don’t use a marked deck, but after seeing these I may have to start.” – Gary Plants
Finally someone has found a solution to using marked cards on a regular basis. Marked decks are a great tool to have on hand for the experienced card guy, but usually are cost prohibitive to use on a regular basis, being reserved for those "special shows".
Now, there is nothing to fear on the price tag as well as visibility of the marks (if that was another conviction on using marked cards (too hard to read or too easy to see))
First, the markings are well placed and are visible to the magi at an arms length but also well enough for across the table without being found out.
Second, the two instructional videos are phenomenal. Rick Lax's is about how to read the markings plus a few effects. Jon Armstrong brings his typical style to a couple tricks in the other.
My understanding is that there may be a pricebreak by the brick and if so, this may be the only deck I ever use again. Otherwise, it's still well priced to be used for every gig and not just those "special" ones.
Printed on Maiden back by USPCC in a full tuck case (that's marked as well).

I "feel the vibrations" and they are good!!!
I love marked cards...people think we used them anyway so why the hell not use them all the time...and now you can!
The one thing that stands out to me about this product is the obvious attention to detail that Penguin has paid to this deck. The marks are everywhere and ridiculously easy to see. Plus, they are formed in a way that deceives the eye and integrated into the natural pattern of the Maiden back seamlessly. They are disguised within the twists and turns of the image so the spectators eye casually passes right by them, whereas you can see them in an instant.
Another great feature about this deck is the price. I no longer have to be precious in handling my marked cards. These are so inexpensive that I can use them as my every day deck. I can toss them around, tear them up and even stick 'em in my mouth and not care.
If you are not familiar with marked deck work, Rick Lax provides some wonderful time tested effects to get you started that he and his cohorts have structured brilliantly. Rick is a great teacher and explains everything clearly and concisely. The training is over an hour and all of it is solid.
I will most definitely use these cards in my shows because they are great quality, have all the features I could ever want, and most importantly... they barely put a dent in my card buying budget!

I came up in a time when the go-to of marked decks was the Deland Automatic Deck; problematic because of the strip, and difficult because of the marking sizes - problems solved!
I should start by saying I am in no way a 'card guy'. I do, however, appreciate a good deck of cards, gimmicked or no. This deck will replace all my card decks except the stripper and has probably doubled my force capabilities.
I could not be more pleased with the capabilities of this deck, the ease of card recognition, and the myriad possibilities it presents. The brick price for specialized decks is pretty sweet as well... :-)
Give your other card decks to an up and coming amateur in your local club; you won't need them anymore.
