MJM Update: Johnson Items, Sleeve Star, and more!


Breaking news (beep beep beep beep)! You like that? It's my impression of an interupted news broadcast, although it doesn't translate quite as nice via email! of the requests we've always gotten over the past few years is, "Do you carry any Johnson products?"

(And no, we're not talking about baby shampoo!)

Well, I am happy to announce that MJM Magic has partnered up with Johnson Precision Magic, and we now offer their full range of products! Ask anyone in the industry, and they will tell you HANDS DOWN that Johnson Magic products are at the TOP of the pack. Their quality is second to none, and they've been setting the standard for gimmicked coins for years.

Now, if you're looking for something less pricey, we recommend our Tango line of products. But if you're a coin worker who wants to stand apart from the rest, and looking to have our own Johnson line of products, you can now pick them up right here with us!

They have everything from flippers, locking coins, scotch & soda, and even nice brass BANG RINGS to assist with those hard to separate shells!

And if you're not into coins, we highly recommend their CHOP CUP or their CUPS AND BALLS which are both used by so many professionals out there for their durability and quality:

Most of these are special order right now, but as time goes on and more people place orders, you will see us having them in stock for immediate delivery. Right now though, most will ship in roughly 4-7 business days after you place your order with us until we build up our stock levels.

SLEEVE STAR - The Unbelievable Coin Transposition!

You're going to start hearing a LOT about this effect from all kinds of magic dealers, and for good reason. It will BLOW YOU AWAY, not just your spectators!

So you want to know what REAL MAGIC looks like? Then pick up Sleeve Star! b. You put one hand behind your back before the performance even starts. You then get someone to SIGN a coin and place it into your other hand. With no funny moves, the coin disappears and ends up in your hand, which has been behind your back the ENTIRE TIME!

The demand for this is going to be high, and I have to be honest: we're only getting a small supply. So we wanted to make a point to publish this in our newsletter to give you a heads up EARLY, so you could preorder and be guaranteed to get it when it comes out.

Click the link below to see more demos and read more about this amazing effect!


The reviews are pouring in, and it's official: Highflyer by Peter Eggink is one of our hottest selling items, three months and counting!

Here's what some of you have had to say:

"This looks really good and using the gimmick for a rise is very creative." -- Steve Haynes, creator of Hand Out 500

"I think this effect is brilliant with the gimmick and the routine. It is so visual, and easy to clean up, and reset. I prefer this effect over Hawk 2.0, even though I like both. " -- Phil (Merlin) at The Magic Cafe

"It is just as visual in person as in the video. The fact that the card floats while the spectator is holding the deck is a nice touch." -- Gustavo Garcia

"I just got mine and went through the DVD and played with the gimmick and routine. Very clever thinking here and I like it a lot! The gimmick is easy to work with so far. But of course I'll have to actually practice with it and try it out a few times in a real situation before I give a real assessment of the effect. But so far, Thumbs up from me. This is better than 'The Hawk'." -- Voldemort from The Magic Cafe

"I received Highflyer a few days ago and I must say I am very happy with my purchase. The visuals of the effect are fantastic, and the gimmick works like a charm. You can use either a signature or a sticker though I believe the visuals are better with a signature( though I guess it depends on the sticker as well). I also feel this is very practical for walkaround work. The reset is easy and simple. The final floating phase is also very clever and looks great. The ability to place the deck on the spectators fingers and cause the card to shoot up like a magnet to your fingertips is very cool. All in all, I thought Highflyer was an excellent purchase. " -- zmakingmagic at The Magic Cafe

If you haven't gotten yours yet, then what are you waiting for?! Click this link to read more about it and watch the demo:


For a limited time, we are giving away a free Crimson Deck with the purchase of the Sheridan Course in Card Manipulation. That way, you have a deck of cards to immediately begin practicing all the new moves you'll learn!

This is a 3 DVD set, geared towards all levels of magicians. Whether you're a beginner at card manipulation, or an advanced pasteboard handler, you will find value in this DVD. Granted, I can't handle cards to save my life (just see in this video), but even a knucklehead like me is able to improve my card handling skills from watching this.

Over 6 HOURS of footage!

Clearance Deal of the Week: Greg Wilson's In Action DVDs

Earlier this year, we had the opportunity to purchase a bunch of these on a liquidation sale from a supplier. The deal was just too good to pass up!

Now that we're sitting on these, we wanted to slash prices and offer you a deal you can't afford to pass up!

Normally retailing at $105.00, we are practically giving these away at the new low price : $49.95!

Because these are at rock bottom clearance pricing, they're only being sold on a first come, first serve basis. Once we sell out of these, this deal will be gone and the price WILL JUMP UP back to normal price.

So pick up your set today!

In Action contains FIVE HOURS of instructional footage, spanning over three DVD's. It features one of the industries most successful magicians, Greg Wilson. What we like about Greg is not just his hard hitting effects, but almost as important, HE'S A GOOD TEACHER! Many times, you purchase a DVD for a brilliant effect, but the magician's personality is sub par and you walk away from watching it with more questions than answers! Not with Greg! He really explains things in detail, and he's hilarious to watch.

If you have any questions about this promotion, please contact us through our website at MJM Magic.

The Drama of Biokinesis - UPDATE

As you may or may not know, there has been a major issue with the vendor with regards to bringing Biokinesis into the United States. In case you haven't heard, the supplier found out AFTER THE FACT that you're not allowed to sell anything which requires a contact lens in the United States unless you have certain permits, prescriptions, and licensing. Even though this trick requires COSMETIC lenses, they're still required by law not to sell them.

Of course, that put all us magic dealers in quite the predicament. We were already given the "green light" to presell these items (which many purchased from us), but then the rug was pulled out from underneath all of us when the supplier found out that the lenses couldn't come with the effect.

So we had to come up with a solution for you where you could still get the effect you wanted, but also not circumvent the law! And this is what we've come up with.

Now we have a solution in place, and all of you who ordered Biokineses through MJM Magic should have been contacted by us via email already.

If you haven't yet purchased this effect, you can purchase it here. We have lowered the price to only $ 31.00 now! This will give you the full instructional DVD which includes:
  • The correct set up.
  • The proper care of the gimmicks.
  • Full handling details, including the tips and tricks he has mastered over 8 years and thousands of performances!
  • Full instructions on activating and deactivating the gimmicks during any performance.
We will then provide you with the contact information for where you can purchase the gimmicks separately from a third party company who is allowed to sell them by themselves. They will cost roughly $46.50.

If you have any further questions, please let us know! Thank you for being so patient on this hot new preorder. It's been a roller coaster for us, behind the scenes, trying to get everything worked out so that you can get this into your hands with the minimal amount of hassle.

Purchase the Biokinesis DVD right here!

RIP Yonezo Mikame

I just heard some really sad news for me personally. It's come to my attention that Mr. Mikame, one of the finest crafters in the magic industry, just passed away a few hours ago.

If you don't own a Mikame Craft product, you're really missing out. And if you do, then you will know that we just lost someone who put quality above anything else.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Mikame and hanging out with him all day while he was in town. It was a pretty private thing, with only a few other people in the room. Not only did he perform a private show demonstrating all his products, but we got to share lunch and chat with him.

What impressed me the most is from the outside, he appeared to be this little, old man......but when he began to perform magic, something changed. His face was vibrant. His humor almost floored me with the way he presented his magic. It drew me in and I wanted to buy EVERYTHING he was showing me! It was a very touching moment for me to share that experience with one of the greats in the industry.

My only regret is not getting to know him longer, and I wish him and his family the best during this hard time.

Needless to say, there's a good chance that since his passing, all of his items are going to become collectors items, since he is no longer around to manufacture them. I cannot recommend his items enough, and you can see our wide selection right here.

RIP Mr. Mikame. Thank you for everything you've done and setting the standard as high as you did.

VLOG: Jeff talking about Birthday Bonus Event

More rules and details here:

BIRTHDAY BONUS 20% OFF! Expires 9/9/10 at 7:30am!

Remember this code: MJM20. Now continue reading!

This is a SPUR of the moment thing. Seriously. I literally didn't think of this until this morning when I woke up. You see, today is my birthday. So as I'm sitting here contemplating life, and I thought, "I want to do something I've NEVER DONE BEFORE for all our MJM Magic customers. Something that all customers can take advantage of. Something so great that I can only afford to do it for a small window of time."

So here it is, plain and simple. Those of you who are returning customers, you each have a returning customer discount code. This code will normally take off 10% any discountable item in your shopping cart. Well starting today, if you use the code MJM20, for the next 24 hours it will "magically" TAKE OFF 20% instead of the regular 10% off!

So that $50.00 item you've been eyeballing will now give you $10.00 off instead of only $5.00 off when you use your discount coupon!

All you have to do is use this discount code (MJM20) when you make your purchase, and during this special time period, it will automatically TAKE OFF 20% FROM THE ALREADY SALE PRICE!

There are some exceptions, but it's the same exceptions that apply towards the regular 10% discount that you normally get every day:

  • This will only work on discountable items. If you're trying to purchase something that indicates "no further discounts may apply," then it won't be applied to those specific items. Anything else in your cart will be discounted 20%.

  • This cannot apply to ANY ORDERS placed before 9/8 at 7:30am, nor after 9/9 at 7:30am. No exceptions.

  • Discount pricing won't be reflected until you proceed to the checkout screen, enter your MJM20 coupon code, and hit the Refresh button. Then you will see the discount applied.

  • After the special Birthday Bonus expires Thursday at 7:30am, you can revert back to using your regular returning customer code, just as you always have.

If you have any other questions, please let me know. As I said, this is a SPECIAL THANK YOU to all our customers for choosing MJM Magic, and making my birthday a special one!

YOU TUBE VIDEO of me talking about it HERE.

Keep smiling,
- Jeff Mash (Founder)
