Print an entire deck from blank cards
The Magic Printing Deck is a trick deck and a popular effect that is also known under names like the Mental Photography deck (although there are differences), and it enables you to create the visual illusion of printing an entire deck from blank cards.
The deck operates on the Svengali principle, and you'll need to arrange cards yourself since the two types of card come separately - but this should take you less than a minute. Printed instructions are included with the deck, but they are fairly brief. However, you do get a link to an online video, which runs for around 9 minutes, and explains how to handle the deck and perform the effect. This focuses more on the handling than presentation, but there's plenty of material online that will give you ideas for how to present this effect in an entertaining manner.
Be aware that the Magic Printing Deck is a bridge sized deck, rather than the usual poker size. The card backs are not Bicycle rider backs, but have a design that looks quite normal and shouldn't arouse any questions. The cards themselves have a smooth finish and are not embossed, but this isn't a deck you'll be shuffling or doing fancy flourishes with anyway, so it isn't a handicap.
The Mental Photography Deck, which is also available from the same publisher, is very similar to the Magic Printing Deck. Personally I prefer the similar Mental Photography Deck, which lets you print blank on both sides. Although one-trick ponies, the fact that these decks can produce such a very powerful impression when performed well makes them a worthwhile investment; I've certainly had enormous fun with my deck over the years. - BoardGameGeek reviewer EndersGame
