Frequently asked questions
Since when does the company Tesmar Zauberartikel exist?
Tesmar Zauberartikel was founded back in 1987! Tesmar Stegmaier imported the first magic tricks from the USA to Germany while he was still at school. He was the first dealer ever to offer James George's now ubiquitous Invisible Thread Reel (ITR) in Germany. After rooms in the parents' house were first used for storage, a former small supermarket in Betzdorf in the Westerwald was rented shortly afterwards as the first large warehouse. After that, the company moved to Cologne into a large warehouse with offices in the middle of the city. Since 2006, the mail order business has been located in the metropolis of Berlin, since 2023 in the city of Chemnitz.

Questions about exchanges and returns
Can I return tricks and other products?
If a product is faulty or defective, we will replace it. In this case, please contact us immediately after receipt of the goods, otherwise no replacement can be made.
DVDs, computer programs and products that contain a data carrier or download access/video stream are generally excluded from exchange as soon as the protective packaging has been opened or the product has been returned. the download/video stream has been viewed or downloaded. That is the provision of the law. The customer would otherwise have a so-called "pecuniary advantage" if, for example. watches a DVD or download first and then simply returns the goods. The legislature prevents that. It's similar to what you'd see in a motion picture: You also can't look at it first and then ask for your money back because you didn't like the content.
For all other tricks, spell books, accessories, etc. applies that a return is possible within one month. However, as trickery is a large component of the item price, we reserve the right to stop supplying customers if we believe that an order has only been placed in order to find out about a particular trickery secret and the goods are then returned. We share the names of customers who do this with other magic dealers, and protect ourselves and the art of magic from this practice.
Please always discuss returns with us in advance by sending an email to email@example.com .
For returns please use exclusively (!) the following address:
If you have any questions or comments, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we will usually respond within 24 hours at the latest.
