Magic Lessons #75 – Magic Mail Box
Sometimes it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that a magic trick is better if you have to pay more money for the props you’re going to use for it. This Magic Mail Box Trick shows that this is not always the case. This easy-to-make and perform close-up effect is a great example of why paying more isn’t always better. The magic mail box trick is a very magical trick and it is able to be examined.
Origins and Customization:
This was originally designed by George Jarshuar. This is the only information I have on when this magic trick first appeared. If you have any further information you can contact me and I will update the page. The magic mail box trick is so easy to make and the effect is extremely direct. You place your tiny letter into a small folded mailbox that can fit in your wallet. You ask your participant to choose a destination for the letter to end up. The letter is not a duplicate, you can even get the participant to mark the letter before you begin the trick.
The trick that I showed you in the tutorial video is small and will only work well for smaller audiences. If you wanted to play the magic mail box trick for a bigger audience, there is no reason you couldn’t
find a way to enlarge the trick and make it work for a stage version. This trick is very customizable, so feel free to come up with your own stories or themes to accompany this simple magic mail box trick.
Mail Box Options:
You can re arrange or change the locations on the flaps to whatever or wherever you want. It doesn’t have to be the locations I used in the video. This could be places in the place you live. The premise doesn’t have to include a mailbox at all, go wild with your imagination and see what themes you can come up with.
You can do what I did in the video and use the letter to promote something you are doing. If you do it in a fun way, people won’t mind.

Nice little trick. Could be good for closeup. I could see a larger version being made for small groups performances. Could also work for magic classes. A low cost little trick for the students.
Thank you for sharing.
One of my fellow magicians did this effect for our local International Brotherhood of Magicians weekly magic luncheon and got a VERY good response from it..
