In an age where everything has gone digital , the humble business card remains an essential tool for magicians . It ’ s a tactile piece of your brand that people can hold , feel , and remember . But what if you don ’ t have a headshot or fancy branding to grace your card ? Fear not , for the magic is still within your reach !
A headshot , while adding a personal touch , isn ’ t necessary for a business card .
You can conjure the same effect with eye-catching stock images that resonate with a magician theme . But beware , most stock image sites might lead you down a rabbit hole of terribly cheesy and clichéd images for magicians .
You don ’ t want your card to look like a parody of a magic show !
Remember , it ’ s not about what you ’ re missing ; it ’ s about how you use what you have .

A FEW WORDS FROM THE CHIEF EDITOR
August has been a crazy month with so much magic in my life . I attended my first MAGIC Live ! with a small team from Vanish Magic Magazine and had the time of my life . Jordana Borensztajn and I were running around like crazy getting interviews , filming and really having fun , attending shows and workshops and were able to put up daily postings all over social media . Some of those posts now have over 700K views and still going strong , which totally blows my mind . VANISH has reached a milestone and we are about to do some new and revolutionary things with the magazine that will catapult it to a level never seen before in magic publications . Enjoy this in-depth look at MAGIC Live ! and our exclusive interview with Stan Allen .
