Welcome to Banner Wands!

Most professional magicians agree that the best place to promote your show is during your show. One of the easiest ways to do that is with a sign or a banner. A custom-made banner wand will keep your name in front of the audience throughout your show. Plus, each wand comes with presentation tips which call attention to your name.

Our wands are specially printed on heavy polyester cloth and sewn around wooden rods for stability. You may create your wand two ways. Select a background that you like and choose a typeface to go with it. Or, you can design your own unique graphic.

Backgrounds

First, decide which background you like.

Typeface

Next, you'll need to select the typeface you'd like to use. Please use an easily readable typeface, such as Arial, Bodoni, Cooper, Impact, or Rockwell, for example. Avoid ornate or script typefaces. Next, choose a color for your message. Indicate if you would like the letters outlined in a different color for better contrast.

If you'd like, you may copy a background and paste it into a graphic program to experiment with different typefaces. The images above are lower resolution than the ones used to print the actual wands, of course, but this will give you an idea of how your wand will appear.

Design Your Own

Perhaps you have your own logo or want something that doesn't appear above. If you have the creative spirit, you can design your own wand. Here are our guidelines for file submissions.

Files must be 18 inches wide by 17 inches long. Image resolution must be between 72 dpi and 300 dpi. Acceptable file formats are jpg, png, psd, and pdf. Files should be no larger than 10 Mb.

What Happens Next?

After you've decided which background, typeface, and message you like, email the details to me. I'll design the graphic and email a copy to you for approval.

If you are paying by PayPal - When you approve of the graphic, email me stating that you approve of the graphic. Then log onto your PayPal account and transfer payment to the email address below.

If you are paying by check or money order - When you approve of the graphic, print out the email I sent you, handwrite your approval on the printout, and mail the printout and payment to the address below.

The custom wands are $69.95 plus $5 for shipping ($74.95)

Please keep in mind, these wands are not mass produced items. Each fabric is printed individually and crafted into a wand one at a time. This takes time. Your wand will be shipped to you within three to four weeks after we receive payment.

Pre-printed Wands

Sometimes you just don't know how to end your show. You've produced the rabbit, vanished your assistant, and sawed yourself in half - but how do you say "goodbye?" You need The Wand with Three Ends. During your show, you occasionally mention that you have something special to show them - but not just yet. Then, at the end of the show, you announce that you will finally show them the mystery item - The Wand with Three Ends. The audience will laugh because it looks like a normal wand with two ends. You then point to the three ends saying, "One here, one here, and this (unrolling the banner) is The End of the show."

This wand is $39.95 plus $5 for shipping ($44.95). Please contact me to check on availability. If you would like a The End wand with a different background, that would be considered a custom wand and priced accordingly.
