Morrissey Magic Ltd. is a magic manufacturer established in 1959 by Herb Morrissey (1938 - 2003) in Canada to sell his Morrissey Cups.

Morrissey Magic now supplies magic equipment and supplies to magicians in Canada and through out the world.

In 1964, Morrissey opened a retail magic shop in Montreal, Canada on Bluery Street.

In 1978, they opened a second magic shop in Toronto. Herb Morrissey moved to Toronto and Richard Olsen, a partner in the business managed the shop in Montreal as well as the manufacturing and mail order business. The Toronto store was a retail only magic shop.

In 1986 Herb's son, Dan Morrissey joined the business and eventually the whole operation in Montreal was moved to Toronto.
