Laura, hello I really enjoy the interviews U do on FULL CIRCLE MAGIC. I would like 2 see more escape artists and more so the different venues that promote such entertainment. It would also be a great topic as to the various ways 2 promote an escape act.

I have used them and Vista Print. The companies are both reliable and fast turn around. I was also able 2 design my own cards. I also suggest 2 anyone since you only pay for shipping 2 pay extra and include a trick on the back of the card. So few people use the white back of the card 2 do something exciting for the future customer/client. We all use biz cards from time 2 time and write a name or info. with little reguard 2 the person who gave it 2 U. I have found by adding a quick trick, a prediction, a secret weblink 4 a surprize gift, e-book, ect is also a way 2 build your mailing list. If the trick is good enough they will keep your card and tell others. Why not let the business card do some real magic and do some advertising/markettttttting 4 your business. I have even used the back when performing my COMEDY ESCAPE HIGH PRICES ACT with a secret phone number that goes 2 a answering machine asking for a email inexchange for the chance for free show tickets. The phone rings off the hook and beware not 2 spam and call them back unles U make it clear I will be calling the winners back. I work also as a manager for a fortune 500 International Consulting Company so these ideas work because many of my clients R entertainers, magicians, and musicans, Thanks Cliff 4 the valuable information U present here.

Hi Everyone.

I wanted to take a mament to let you know about an offer of free business cards.  No I do not work for the comapny.  I just took advantage of thier offer and liked what I got, and so wanted to share that with you all.

Check this offer out... http://www.printastic.com/business-cards/

Printastic did a great job of making business cards for me to hand out.  The best part is that unlike some "free" card sites, here you have full cretive control.  You can add color, graphics and the words and fonts you like.  They shipped really fast too, much faster than I expected.

The cards I got were colored well, no blotches or fade spots, and came in the level of quality I requested.  Upgrades are available if you want them, but they are not pushed.  I did not feel "tricked" into buying anything I did not want.

You can get 250 for free (yes you do pay shipping, but it is reasonable) to check out if you like the product.  Then buy more as needed.

If you need business cards, check out printastic.com

Bob, I do both a plastic hefty bag and a giant paper bag escape. I perform the giant paper bag escape more for GRAND OPENING events. I have used this for WAL-MARTS, C.V.S., Walgreens, and recntly Dollar General. The dollar general I used their logo and blow it up to 5 times the size and printed it on white peel stcik label paper so I had the logo on the front of the bag. I also had 2 store managers lock me in the bag with tie wraps(sometimes use duck tape/handcuffs) sign the top of the bag and escape behind a curtain but changed this 2 a large cardboard box. I did a vanish from the box and appeared coming out of the stor with coupons for the customers. I also did a cut and restored ribbon f/x for the press before the illusion. I have got many high paying gigs from corporate chains with this but only one of several out door stage illusions I have perfected over 25 years.

I hope this helps and enlighntens U 2 just a small idea that plays really big if U focus on the store, the brand, and the customers first. Be sure to have the bag signed and can be examined after with not tells. I wish U much luck.

CARPE DIEM,

Dr. Anton
