Video summary: Making the magic happen.

The little shop that didn't accept the phrase "You can't do that"

Magus Effects first started its life as a small, at home business, dealing with photo retouching and restoration. Back then the things like Photoshop and other photo editing programs did not exist. It was all done with colored pencils and photography. Most of the work was retouching wedding photos.

Soon requests for video editing started followed by requests for us to take the photos and shoot the video cameras for weddings and other events. As we were on a shoestring budget, we needed to learn to repair what things we could. This not only included our items, and equipment but also everything from a rip in a gown or tux to a broken table leg. More than once, we managed to save an event because we had a few extra rolls of duct tape, super glue or needle and thread.

This lead to us making our own props for backgrounds and photoshoots. Soon people were asking us where we got this item or that chair, and we had to explain that he made them ourselves for the shoots. It wasn’t long before someone asked to buy one of the chairs. We saw no reason why not and a deal was struck. The next week the person came back and asked for 3 more for their dining room set.

Thankfully technology had made several advances. WE were able to downsize the photo lab and most of the studio, thanks to Photoshop. This allowed us to have a shop for fabrication. As technology changed and advanced so did our little business. All the time, keeping it small and simple.

Now with the digital age in full swing and becoming a part of our lives in every possible way, we too are evolving. Now we mainly focus on keeping our work in a digital form. We still have a shop, but now, it is more computer and CNC machines than the old power tools with every attachment known to man. Even though we still use the shop, it is no longer back breaking or labor intensive.

So dear reader, we do hope you have enjoyed our small trip through memory lane. We also hope that is has been educational and entertaining at the very least. We do ask that you feel free to take a look around and do not be afraid to ask any questions should you have any. I do promise we do not bite… much.

Processing Time

Most items we do our best to get out right away, like within a day or two. An item that takes a lot of finishing, like custom work, wood art, castle towers, and puzzles will take a little longer because we carefully assemble and finish these items ourselves. We do not outsource, so you won't have to wait weeks. We'll have most items done in a few days. Please look at the estimated delivery date on the item for a more exact answer.
