I’m Jeremy Hanrahan and I gaff decks of cards for a living. I know you are probably wondering “Is that a real thing?” Sadly yes lol.
It all started about 5 years ago when I received a below standard and poorly made stripper deck. The corners were not rounded, the cut was excessive and to put it bluntly, the deck looked like crap. It was after seeing the workmanship of this deck I set out on a quest to make my own! I searched online and found the equipment needed to cut and corner a stripper deck. I didn’t know it at the time, but that was when The Hanrahan Gaff Co was born. I started making stripper decks for my local magic shop. Before I knew it, I had a lot of inventory so I turned to Ebay to sell my decks. At the end of 7 days, all but 2 decks had sold and I knew I was on to something!
I then turned my attention to splitting cards. After splitting 72 bricks of cards I was confident I was capable of making Hofsinzer Cards. I reached out to theory11 to see if they were interested in selling my Hofsinzer cards and the rest is history. I have since had the pleasure to gaff Blake Vogt’s effects Regeneration and Invisible Card, as well as all the card and deck related items at theory11.
I then started reaching out to a lot of companies to see if they would be interested in using my services. I was lucky enough to get a reply from Maxwell Murphy, who at that time was co-owner of Penguin Magic. I sent him some samples and was shocked with the first purchase order they sent me! Since then I have enjoyed working closely with Tim Trono and the team at Penguin Magic team.
I decided to then turn my sights to direct sales in the retail market by opening gaffed card.com. It will be used to further the craft of card gaffing by offering top of the line card gaffs and decks. I want my customers to own something unique and elite in the magic industry. The decks that will be offered on my site will be limited in numbers and only obtainable on this site.
