Instructions for the Shimmed Card

Supplied is a magnetic steel shim inserted between two Bicycle brand cards. This will attract or be attracted by a magnet or magnetized object. It can be a useful addition to your collection of gimmicked cards, and one that will pass as just another card in normal use.

The shimmed card is normally used with magnetized coins. For example place a magnetic coin on the back of a spectator’s hand. Tap it with a deck of cards, with the shimmed card on the bottom. The coin will “vanish”. Coin will actually be stuck to the bottom card, simply palm off the coin and turn the deck over to show the coin is not there.
