Rogue: Alright, we've got here some business cards. I'm going to sign, put my initials on that body right there. And here take the pen. I want you to write your initials on the back of the card, right here on the white space. Perfect. Heather I'll give you a hand. Put your hand on top of the card. These are all unmarked, correct?

Heather: Yep.

Rogue: I'm just gonna take a random one right over here. Nothing on the back correct? No signature?

Heather: No.

Rogue: Okay, watch this it's pretty interesting. Watch, take it. Just like that. Do you see it? There's a signature on it now. Your signature actually, your initials. Watch, just like that there is no signature on the front. Take a look. My signature is on the front but yours has disappeared from the back. Check out the back.

Heather: How'd you do that?

Rogue: Pretty well.

This is actually one of my pet effects so you can definitely use this to hand out your business cards, it's really, really cool. You need stack of business cards, around 30 business cards. Preferably your own so you can actually promote for yourself. What I would like to do first is to sign the business card with my initials. So you sign the business card with your initials, right there. And then you are going to have them, the spectator, sign the back of the business card. But before they do that you are going to do something that is called a Double Lift. Basically you are going to lift up two cards as one. So you feel from the bottom, as you feel two cards you turn them over as one card. So it looks like the back of the card you've signed. Now you have them sign the back of the business card, what they think is the back of the business card, which is actually the back of the card in the back of it. Now you're going to do your Double Lift one more time. Lift up two cards as one and turn it over so they see that you're signature is still on the front of the card as it should be.

At this point you are going to take the top card, the one with your signature on it but doesn't have the signature on the back, in between their hands like a sandwich. Leave them right here for now. There signature is actually on the back of this card but they don't know that. You are going to take an indifferent card, another card, and you are going to face it out so there is no signature right here. You are going to do your Double Lift one more time for the transposition. Now there's two cards back to back, one with the signature on the back, this one has no signature. You are going to hold it from the opposite corners and you are going to wave it back and forth. As you do that you are going to take your first finger and you are going to pivot it. Now there is no signature on the front but there signature pops up on the back. You can tap their hand from the bottom with the business card and they see inside their hand, now the reveal, your signature is still here but their signature disappears from the back and has transposed to the card that you changed. So that is the Business Card trick or the Signature Transportation.
