THE MATI ENVELOPE
16 Euros

THE BLURB:
The Mati Envelope is a brand new envelope peek system which
allows (not only) for an extremely clean and devious peek of
any information written on an untouched slip of paper,
sealed shut into a completely opaque envelope! Everything is
done slowly and in plain sight - yet you still obtain a full
stealth peek... But there�s even more to the The Mati
Envelope... It is one of those rare envelopes that can be
used when a peek alone is not enough, e.g. when you need to
hand out everything immediately and even have the audience
themselves tear their envelope open afterwards. Imagine
the possibilities The Mati Envelope offers in the classic
Three Envelope Test, for Pre-Show work, Q&A, Drawing Dupes
or Pseudo Psychometry...

MY COMMENTS:
This is an extremely clever envelope. Indeed, it is a peek
envelope, but so very different from what most are used for.
Without giving too much away, I can say that the peek is
done while the participant holds the envelope. In fact, the
performer can be in another room and get the peek!

As the blurb states, there are no switches and everything is
in plain sight the whole time. Now, there may be a bit of
misleading going on and I have to be very careful what I say
about this because I don't want to give too much away. The
list in the blurb of what this is and isn't may imply to
some that there are no impressions. Well, there are, but
it's not the usual impression device(s), and it works in
such a way that it allows you to do everything that the
blurb claims. It's quite easy to do and experienced
mentalists may be aware of this technique already.

There is that proverbial "price" to be able to do this. It
does take awhile to contruct each envelope which can only be
used once. The materials to make the envelope are easy to
maintain but it will probably take about five minutes for
each envelope. If you make a bunch at a time, I would think
the average time to make these would be less, though I
haven't tried that. It does involve cutting and pasting and
taking apart envelopes and putting them back together. In
other, it's not difficult, but it does take time to make
them.

One thing I will note is that this is a bit "knacky." It
will take you some time to get it right so that the peek
work can be done effectively. Unfortunately, I can't be
specific about what that involves, although I will say it's
a combination of timing and pressure. Like the
construction, it's certainly not difficult, but it will
require a certain amount of practice to do it smoothly.

The only performers that wouldn't need this forty-eight page
downloadable e-book are those that just don't like making
their own props. Otherwise, this extraordinarily useful
peek envelope is highly recommended for all working
mentalists.
