Svenlopes by Sven Lee

Little envelopes, big impact!


Svenlopes is a utility device that will add a fresh update to your already existing svengali routines. There are also 22 routines (and plenty of printable images) included with the prop, which is very helpful, if you have never used a svengali method before. Svenlopes is super simple, clean, and self working! And if you are not familiar with the basic svengali principle, that is also explained with plenty of tips and how-to’s as well. So, let’s see, what do we get when purchasing Svenlopes by Sven Lee!

the packaging::

10.5cm x 9 cm x 4.3 cm plastic, reusable box keeps corners neat and papers crisp. Ziplock bag (not pictured) also keeps envelopes safe from water. The box is reusable, and securely closable as well. This case is ready to take on the road with you! Taped inside the lid is the link to your downloadable pdf instructions.

skill level / handling::

Absolutely no sleight of hand required, handling is very straight forward, and very deceptive. Almost all svengali routines can be performed with these. After one envelope is chosen (out of the 50), audience can freely handle it, there is nothing to hide. Also, a full deck of envelopes can be handled freely by cutting it multiple times to shuffle before final selection is made. You can also use less than 50 envelopes, depending on your routine and preference.

the props / gimmick::

50 pcs black, poker size (9cm x 7cm) envelopes are included. (25 force and 25 regular envelopes) Precision, laser cut Svenlopes made by nice quality paper that should last you for a long time, if you take care of it and store it in it’s secure case. With just one pack of Svenlopes, multiple routines are possible, using multiple objects! You can choose from other types of Svenlopes (they are all 50 pieces of envelopes total).

above: 10 pieces of Svenlopes (to the left) each loaded with real size poker chips.

What can you place inside of Svenlopes? The pfd suggests a variety of items, such as: poker chips, coins, keys, billets, photos of movie stars or music icons or wanted criminals, you name it!

I’ve tested the envelopes by placing poker chips inside and it is still working as promised. Although, I wasn’t able to use all the cards, only 10 cards total (5 of each), and works very nicely, and still very deceptive. Anything more than that seems to have a hard time staying in a pile or squaring up nicely. So, even if you want to use a bit thicker than paper objects, it’s still possible.

With Svenlopes, there is nothing to build or craft, they arrive show ready. You just need to load them whatever you choose to use for your magic performance. They work as promised, and the reset time also simple and quick. I recommend it for beginners as well as professionals! Would work nicely during a closeup performance, parlour or TV shows! And, if you have not used svengali in your show before, this might be the time!
