The “Omni” plot is immensely popular. And for a good reason. It’s stunning and spectators love it. But there is an inherent problem with it. It’s always the magician’s item that changes.

Imagine if you could borrow an item from a spectator. A deeply personal and precious item. And change it to a clear, perspex version.

Thanks to the inventive Josh Janousky, now you can.

“Blankrupt” lets you borrow a credit card/ID/drivers’ license and with a wave of your hand transform it to an “omni” card instantly. And you can immediately hand it out for examination. Then, when you desire, you return it to its natural state. Or make it appear from your wallet, or other impossible location.

Direct, visual, organic magic at its very best.

This is something you will always carry in your wallet and always want to perform.

The informed among you will realise that Alan Rorrison had some work on this plot, but fear not, this is released with his blessing.

And it will work with any card in the world. You can pick from USA/Canada style (8.5mm) or Rest of the World style (13.5mm). 

You receive:

  • Two plastic cards
  • 4 chip stickers
  • Online instructions

Available in two styles: Thin Strip (8.5mm - USA and Canada cards) and Thick Strip (13.5mm Rest of world).

"A card trick that non-magi would care about. Making magic that touches on things that matter to audiences is a challenge. Blankrupt takes a color change, which is one of the most enjoyed card effects, and combines it with something modern and borrowed. What's not to like."Garrett Thomas
"I love Omni effects! Josh has taken it from a card trick to an organic miracle."Justin Flom
"Blankrupt is the only omni plot that makes sense. It's something I carry in my wallet at all times."Patrick Kun
“Blankrupt reimagines a classic plot with an object that people care deeply about. It’s a perfect marriage!”Jeff Prace

  • Karsten asks: What is the gimmick made from? I had a gimmick like this from a different trick, but within a month the plastic was in such bad shape it wasn't usable anymore. Is this durable enough to handle being sat on and flexed in whatever ways a card tends to be when stored in a wallet regularly?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: It is made of good quality, durable plastic.
  • BGG Reviewer asks: How difficult is the sleight of hand, and are there similar moves in normal card magic you would compare it to?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: This is a utility. You can use whatever color change works best for you.
  • Pat asks: Can we see a complete live performance please?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: I'm sorry—we don't have a live performance filmed. Blankrupt is a utility prop. It does not include a performance in the traditional sense. How you use it, is only limited by your imagination.
  • Nat asks: Can the right hand be shown to be empty after making the change?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: That depends on the specific color change you use. This is a utility prop, and you can use any method to make the change.

Customer reviews for Blankrupt



So many fun ways to present this effect. You can make it as easy or hard as you like.



I am a fan of the "OMNI" type stuff and this is a nice addition . While the video is short and to the point with ideas from Josh and several other well known magicians, it is, as he states - "a framwork". There are some good ideas and some that I don't think "I" would ever do with someone elses credit card in my possession. However, I already have a few ideas using my own card and some using theirs. The two cards you get are top notch and there are 4 "chip stickers" so you can add to one or both (one sticker on each side). I have opted to doing 1 of each for now. Like my omni sharpies, I have one with a black lid and the brand sticker and one that is totally clear.

In the end, this is an OMNI item. You will surely figure out something that works for your style and act. Great idea and properly credited.



Interesting take on the classic Omni deck. It’s a strong effect that you can keep in your wallet and perform in both professional settings and casual settings when someone asks the age old question: “You’re a magician? Show me a trick!”
