Graphology Course - Black Hart

Postby Stephen Ward » Mon Aug 15, 2011 10:23 am

The Effect

This is a course to give you what you need to give fun, entertaining and professional graphology readings for corporate & private events. This course will show you how to give three types of readings from 5 - 20 minutes duration.


£160 from


(1=easy to do, 2=No sleights, but not so easy, 3=Some sleights used,
4=Advanced sleights used, 5=Suitable for experienced magicians only)

N/A You WILL do this easily.


This is the system that Keith & his team have been using since 1999 and he has finally released it to the public. The readings you can give are all about being fun and entertaining. This is a very commercial Real World system that works (i have already been using it and made the investment back).

You receive a lot in this kit so let's look at each item....

(1). The bag When you receive your kit it all comes in a soft sided expandable briefcase. This is ideal for holding the entire kit in, and i also have my tarot cards and rune stones in my bag. The bag is black, strong and will look very professional when you turn up carrying it.

(2). Graphology Manual This is a lovely comb bound manual printed on good quality paper and laminated front and back. Like all of Keith's printed works it is written in a simple & friendly style. It is almost like Keith is in the room chatting about his system. Now here is the really great part... There is nothing to remember when using this system (more on that later). No memory work is needed, a little cold reading experience may help but is not essential. Keith tells you all you need to know, as well as the system you will learn about setting up, what reading to give, hints on dressing professionally and even how much to charge.

(3). Folding Magnifying Glass Very nice item and impresses clients when you use it. Makes the reading seem more scientific.

(4). Personalised Graphology ID card, Holder & Lanyard When you order the kit you need to supply a photograph of yourself and the details you want on the personalised items. The ID card looks great and i used it when i did my first strolling graphology readings.

(5). Personalised Graphology Sheets - These have your contact details on and are used to give the readings. These sheets are supplied on good quality card for you to photocopy and use (i converted mine to PDF). These sheets serve several purposes, firstly they do most of the work for you! You simply fill them in as you give the reading and give to the clients. You get three sets of sheets, one for signature readings, one for short readings and one for a full 20 minute reading. These are easy and cheap to print out and give to clients.

(6). Laminated signature crib sheet Useful at first but you will not need it for very long.

(7). Laminated graphology poster - a nice little poster with your details on, make some copies and post them up at the venue.

(8). Clipboard - This is a nice quality one and used for giving readings in a strolling environment.

(9). Clip-on Light - very good quality item. Attach it to your clipboard in case there are low light levels at the venue.

(10). Protractor set - All the kit you need for sit down readings


Yes, there is an element here of pricing it to keep it out of the hands of the curious and those who would torrent it. This is a professional kit for people who want to give professional and entertaining readings. The main course is so easy, you will be able to do this straight away. In fact, when you open the kit the first thing you do is do your own handwriting analysis before you even read the book!

You could almost go out straight away and work with this system, it really is that simple. I cannot fault this system at all. Sure, there are many books and courses but this is something that is simple and has been used in the real world for a long time.

Performance report - I did a recent strolling booking using the graphology kit. I took my bag along but all i needed was the clipboard, light, pens and the sheets. I mingled with guests and give a reading of their signature, each guest who had a reading took the sheet home. I got very good reactions and people started approaching me to try and get theirs done quicker! My investment was made back in the first booking.

Forgive my ignorance, what kind of venues would you be doing these at?

Ideal for weddings, corporate work and private parties. For the corporate and wedding bookings you could either do mix and mingle or set up a small table at the venue. For trade shows you could do the same thing. For a private party you could do longer readings after dinner.

I was looking at this and based on your review I think I'll buy it.
Im not a professional entertainer, I'm a tattooist, but I like performing for my customers.
This could be perfect to generate a bit more interest in my business.
Thanks Stephen

I had no experience of graphology and i could do it straight away. Remember to have a photograph ready when you order and because some things are printed with your details it may take an extra couple of days to arrive. It is a large package and will not fit through a letter box.

Resurrecting an old thread; hope you are all still alive and well!
I'm intrigued by this - and by Julian Moore's system. Both use a 'tick sheet' type approach and give the spectator something to take away (that has your contact details). I lean towards a more casual free-form approach which uses a blank sheet (maybe reverse of a flyer that has contact details etc). I guess the ideas could be incorporated in a routine where the spectator writes a few words (suggested to him / her, perhaps) and does a signature on a blank sheet?

The folks who posted on this originally seem to be no longer around but there are still a few of us alive, if not actually kicking! Hope you get some useful feedback.
