"Swap" in three words: PRACTICAL, ORIGINAL, STUNNING.
Nicholas Lawrence releases his "pet" pocket effect, which he does every day to amaze the people in his life. The effect is this: you reach into your pocket and remove a dollar bill and clearly show it. Now you VISUALLY move the printed seal around on the bill and cause it VISIBLY change places with another insignia. You can then hand out the bills and nothing suspicious can be found.
Moving printed material on bills is not new, but the startling nature of causing two symbols to change places IS new, and it makes for a moment your spectators will never, ever forget.
Nicholas covers everything you need to know to perform "Swap." There is some easy preparation required, but nothing more than a little cutting and gluing! To perform the trick, you'll need to use currency that has two insignias/stamps the same size (US dollars are the perfect currency).
Customer reviews for SWAP
When I first saw the trailer for this effect, my mind was blown!!! It was crazy to me how visual something on such a small scale could be. Even though you have to make a gimmick (which is very easy to make), this is an effect that you will always carry in your wallet and be able to amaze your friends at any moment with. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Swap is quick, visual, and easy to do. It should play well in most working environments and has excellent angles. If you are interested in the premise of the effect, I recommend purchasing Swap.
Love this! Although the trick is small, it packs a punch and everyone I have showed it to has left scratching their heads. Moving ink effects are cool anyway but when you do it with bills that can be examined before and after, that's even cooler.
I'm going to try this out with a presentation about 'memory loss' and how even small changes can make us question our reality. I think it could be a perfect lead-in trick for me!
I was very excited to do this because i like magic tricks that involve manipulation of the inks this is a great trick idea but not practical. The gimmicks that come with it don't line up i think maybe if you were to change the size of the gimmicks now i think it would be better but honestly in the scheme of it it's a great concept but not a finished product for my liking. There are other true tested methods in manipulating ink I don't recommend it. I still have it after all these years.

Rick asks: Will this make the bills so your not able to spend them?
Post an answer to this question
- 1. Adam answers: You will end up with at least 1 bill you will not want to spend, though the gimmick is reversible if you want to do this with a higher denomination bill. One bill will be destroyed to make the gimmick, though a method is taught which will need no permanent destruction.
