Working with Vorst and Bosch, we have created the finest close-up pad ever made. The Deluxe Pad is a leather hardbacked pad with interchangeable surfaces, made by a family of craftsman that are in such high demand that they have even made furniture for the British Royal Family.

These pads use the highest quality materials, and each takes six hours to complete. The Deluxe Pad is the perfect pad to use at home to practice on; it's a heavy, pad with perfect cushioning for practicing card sleights and routines like Cups & Balls.

Each close-up pad is unique to its owner, so we have made sure that you have complete flexibility when constructing yours. You make every decision when building your pad:

Pick a leather base
The deluxe mat featured a luxurious wooden base which is wonderfully robust and weighty. It sits firmly on any tabletop and is slightly raised by the specially-sourced rubber feet. This is the base to choose if you are seeking a top-tier product that will last you a lifetime. We offer three colors to choose from: black, brown and white. We also offer vegan-friendly options that use no animal products.

The deluxe pad offers a thick base that wraps around the entire pad, whereas the regular pad has a thin base that covers the bottom of the pad only.

Choose as many surfaces as you'd like
Choose any color surface you like, and select as many as you like. You can even choose multiple surfaces, as they can easily be changed out (and are even compatible with the regular bases). They are all vegan friendly, and some are even water resistant.

Laser-engrave your name or logo
If you want to add the ultimate personal touch, you can have your mat engraved. Using a laser engraver, we can emboss your name, logo, or initials into the surface of your pad. You can choose the size and positioning. Our graphic designers will work with you to make sure that your pad is personalized in exactly the way you want it. To ensure precision, you’ll receive a digital mockup to approve before your pad is manufactured.

One of the great joys of working with the Bosch family has been watching how they work. Perfection is everything to them. Every single pad is made with intense care and attention to detail. More importantly, everything is sourced and produced in a sustainable way that we can all be proud of. The Bosch family have spent thirty years mastering their art, and now, thanks to the V&B Close-Up Pad, they are going to help us master ours.

Dimensions: 21.5" x 13" x 1.5"

    David asks: Just received the pad. It's gorgeous. Quick question. I have two pads and I assume can just pull the first one out to change over the second. Correct? Feels like it might be glued in. Just checking. Thanks, David

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Correct. The inserts are held in by magnets.
    • 2. Sven answers: They are hold together by proffesional Velcro. Not magnets ??

Customer reviews for V&B Close-Up Mat - Deluxe

Richard

Finally! For me, just about any close-up mat will do for cards, but for coins, my dry hands have special needs; the pad must be spongy enough to allow easy pickup between index and pinky fingers and slippery enough to allow coins to slide easily under cover of the hands. In addition to the functionality I've already menitioned, this mat is of perfect size and very classy looking. I'm ordering another.

At last got my deluxe pad , and I must say it is worth every dollar I paid for it .
The size is big enough to do matrix routines and it does provide enough cushion for all matrix moves. Cards and coins glide perfectly ok it.
Another thing is that I am very pleased that the color I selected is exactly the color I got which got me a bit worried at the beginning . The metal plate with the VI and V&B logo is a nice touch.
All and all a great buy and thanks to Sven and VI for keeping in touch throughout the long wait of getting my pad, was worth the waiting.

This is an extraordinary close-up pad. It is beautifully crafted from high quality materials and it is an absolute joy to work on. I purchased a green and black insert, and I just ordered another in red. Once you get your hands on this you'll never want to use anything else.

The V&B close-up mat is a work of art. A sturdy wooden base, expertly covered in beautiful leather. Low profile rubber feet keep it steady as a rock. I purchased 3 surfaces in different colors; they are a dream to work on. They are softer than anything I've ever used, its a snap to pick up cards, coins, or anything else you're using. The padding under the cover feels extremely dense.

I couldn't be happier with this purchase and I highly recommend it.
