A Modernized and EDC version of Spirit Slates that you can perform Anywhere, Anytime.
The Spirit Slates is a classic mentalism effect that has been around for over a century, and it has become a favorite among magicians and mentalists. There are various versions of this effect, with different sizes and materials, from plastic to wood.
In order to share this wonder with more people and to continue the tradition, we have collaborated with Axel Vergnaud to present Spirit NameTag, a true everyday carry version of the Spirit Slates.
The Spirit NameTag takes into account the pros and cons of different versions of the Spirit Slates. After months of experimentation, we have reduced the size of the traditional two large slates and replaced them with luggage tags, making it more practical and in line with modern life, and bringing the Spirit Slates effect into the world of EDC magic.
With the Spirit NameTag, you can now perform the Spirit Slates effect anytime and anywhere, no longer limited to formal and professional performances. You remove two blank luggage tags from your keychain, place them on the table, and turn them over to reveal what the audience has in mind.
To better match the look of luggage tags, the Spirit NameTag is made of ABS plastic and covered with a waterproof film that also allows you to use whiteboard markers and oil-based markers like Sharpie to write your prediction.
Its gimmick ensures complete silence during activation. The process is fully automatic, making it easy to perform. All you have to do is put the two tags together, without shaking or flipping them, and the effect happens.
The size of each luggage tag is 6cm * 3.5cm (approximately 2.4 * 1.4 inches), making it portable and visually appealing. It is also a 1:1 replica of everyday luggage tags, with identical appearance and texture. You can attach it to a keychain and carry it anywhere.
A variety of effects can be performed with the Spirit NameTag, including Prediction, Spirit Writing, Handwriting Appearing or Disappearing, Memory Manipulation, and more. You can also utilize a single tag and the gimmick to expand its usage, making it flexible for different situations.
The Spirit NameTag is a modernized version of the classic Spirit Slates, and it may be one of the most suitable Spirit Slates for performing anywhere, anytime.

Two Tags and a Gimmick

These "Mini Spirit Slates" are very inconspicuous and practical in use and ready for use at any time. A slightly thicker material would have helped to conceal certain points even better otherwise a very successful release.
The classical slates for close up magic. Many possibilities.
This works quite well and I do think I will develop a purpose for this gimmick.
They supply a tool to help reset the gimmick.
You must use the tool and do not follow advice on the video suggesting you can do it without using the tool. I tried doing without the tool and it causes damage to the gimmick's surface.
The gimmick works every time without fail.
There are many applications. If you can think of one, the it's worth a purchase.
Great addition to my keychain...like larger old fashioned spirit slates that are now portable and can be with you every day! Great product!
I've loved the 'spirit slate' idea for years but found chalkboards and chalk not practical. I had a smaller version, but it was cheap plastic, and looked like a toy. This is genius - something that is an absolute every day carry. Looks like an ordinary luggage tag, but works beautifully. It sits on your key chain, completely unnoticed, nothing unusual about it at all - it does not scream 'magic prop' which makes the moment you use it even more jaw-dropping. Very very pleased with this. Delivery was very quick and, as I have found with all TCC deliveries, very well packaged/protected.
nice props, well made! much room for creativity. i decided to stand both frames up in an A frame leaning against each other. Use 'loops' to knock them down invisibly which then engages slates! works wonderfully and locks well. happy with purchase!
I absolutely love what TCC has been bringing to the magic community. High quality classic magic and sometimes with a modern twist. Sadly I’m giving this trick three stars. I would have given it five stars if it was mini wooden slats in the form of a walk around everyday carry. Wouldn’t be be awesome to have two wooden chalkboard slates that you can carry around everyday. TCC is really good at making wooden magic. That would have made this trick an absolute winner. TCC if you are reading this make the slate tag pros out of wood and put it on kickstarter if you have any doubts I’m right. That would make this trick five stars
Innocent but deadly: This version of modern mini spirit slates is the best I’ve seen and fits innocently on your key chain. The gimmick appears simple but well made and can be activated by just picking them up. Great utility tool to have for closeup work. Well done!
