Beginner to winner Magic kits
These are not cheap magic kits that you'd find in a toy-store and give as a gift to a 10 year old. These magic kits are the real deal.
How to be a Magician was originally presented on Kickstarter and funded in just 24 hours. It's since become one of the all-time best sellers of Ellusionist, propelling want-to-be magicians into full-fledged close up magic miracle workers.
How to Read Minds was the follow-up sequel which funded on Kickstarter in a mere 90 minutes and went on to out-sell How to be a Magician and break all records.

Before Ellusionist.com was founded in 2001, you had to order magic tricks from a catalogue. We blew our cash on poorly-made tricks and squinted until our eyes bled from trying to figure out tricks from grainy, black and white photos.
Not anymore. We offer only the most jaw-dropping effects. Our teachers are the best in the business. Our videos are crystal-clear and produced with ease of learning in mind and our quality of magic gimmicks are second to none.

Decks for everyone
The world's finest playing cards
Ellusionist started the custom deck market in the early 2000's. Before Ellusionist.com there were no custom playing cards on Earth, just casino decks and the trusted Bicycle design.
Pioneer Brad Christian flipped that design on it's head. Literally, by double inverting colors on photoshop, unearthing the now famous 'Black Tiger' design.
Many have imitated, but none have come close to capturing Ellusionist's spirit within their designs. Below are 4 of the must-have decks for any new magician. Blindly click on any deck and you'll be discovering a unparalleled standard in playing cards.
The finest stock, the most captivating designs and the best prices.
