The first product to launch my brand Mechanic Industries was the ground breaking Mechanic Deck. Armed with a completely unique flip-book animation system that uses a 13 repeating backs to create an awesome animation effect. Not only does it look cool and is fun to play with, but for the more serious card workers out there it doubles up as a very easy to read marked deck.
To accompany the deck a stainless steel card guard was designed and produced to keep your cards in perfect condition. It also completed the look and helps set performers apart with a fully branded presentation. As well as the card guard, coins in specific sizes for magicians we produced and the Pro-Tool Kit was born. A first of a kind, branded set a complete set of tools for working magicians and enthusiast alike.
You can do some really cool stuff with the deck, as well as combining it with other Mechanic products to create jaw dropping visual magic. Some effects were in-built during the design phase. For example, the Jokers from the deck have the same design as the actual coins we produce, so this allows a very visual trick called 'Grindout' to be possible.
Below you can see a selection of effects using the deck and other products in the set:

The second version is due to launch very soon and we have some big plans for it...
