Obviously there’s a lot more to learn about performing magic than just the sleight of hand.

Here’s a list of all the information you’ll need to get started performing magic tricks. Now, don’t be put off that some of them appear to be easy magic tricks at first. Many professional magicians still do easy tricks from time to time. It helps remind you that the real skill in magic is the performance, not the trick.

About Vanishing Inc. Magic

Andi Gladwin and Joshua Jay

Ten years ago, two professional magicians and best friends, Andi Gladwin and Joshua Jay decided to try and open an online magic shop with a difference. A magic shop that puts customers front and center. A magic website that focuses on outstanding customer service. A store for professionals and beginners that customers could trust and rely on to deliver the best magic tricks, at the best price, with the fastest, free shipping. And Vanishing Inc. Magic was born. Now, it’s one of the largest online magic stores in the world and has staff as far apart as Sussex, Vietnam and New York. We look forward to helping you on your journey to become a better magician.
