3d Paradox (WIZARD Style) Review

Official Review

Shufton Magic’s 3D Paradox is a refreshing change of pace from most of the card magic out on the market today. The basic effect here is a signed card to wallet but instead of a wallet the card is produced in a pop-up greeting card. What really adds impact to this effect is that inside the pop-up greeting card is a magician (two different styles are available) holding an envelope perpendicular to the card surface. Inside this envelope is the signed card. This really makes the effect look impossible.

The card is well made and should hold up for many performances. The instructions are thorough although a sketch or two would not have hurt. If you have performed card to wallet in the past then I would think that you would be able to add this to your arsenal without much trouble. If this type of effect is new to you then you have a bit more work to do but the method and handling are pretty simple and anyone but a novice should be able to perform this given a reasonable amount of practice.

Please note: if your performance style is that of a serious performer then this will be a tough sell. The design of both greeting cards is a bit lighthearted and fun which may not suit your style. That being said I think that this would fit the performance style of most performers today and add a new twist to their repertoires.

Manufacturer's Description:

It's new! It's refreshing! It's Colorful! It's IMPOSSIBLE!

Shufton's 3D Paradox sends their minds on holiday! Just imagine:


The spectator holds a sealed envelope. A card, freely selected, is signed and shuffled back into the pack. The envelope is opened to reveal a brilliantly colored, beautifully illustrated greeting card! It's hinged open and out leaps a colorful 3D scene in which a smaller envelope "pops up"! Her brain melts when she removes the contents herself and discovers her own, SIGNED CARD!

This new diabolical take on the "impossible location" features:

  • Stunning, visual magic!
  • A perfect finale for any signed card routine!
  • Eye-catching professional quality, precision made and assembled with care!
  • No reset or get ready - always ready to perform - anytime, anywhere!
  • Sweet simplicity allows you to focus on presentation!

Do it completely surrounded!
A real reputation maker! Finally, a card-to-impossible-location needing no preparation, wallet, palming, swapping, folding, hiding, jackets, pockets or lemons! Fun to perform!

3D Paradox comes in two colorful versions, creating their own possibilities for patter and presentation. "The Magician" is classically magical with built in humor, and "The Guru" borders on the mystical for a cosmic journey. Let the evening mood decide which you will use! Never has a greeting card been so deadly!

Expect the highest quality from Shufton Magic.
