Invest in the small things
I once worked with a guy who always carried around a tiny silver pencil and would not write in anything else. When I asked him about it he said, ‘You spend all day with a pen and paper, so making these things the best that they can be will majorly improve your day.’
This is how I feel about travel card holders; if you live in a city you spend a lot of the day commuting so it’s worth investing in something that will brighten up your morning commute.
I’ve picked out a few of my favourite designs below.
Go vintage with Penguin Vintage Book cover travel card holder
‘The Lost Girl’ is my current holder (due to the personal reason of not being particularly good with directions.) I can only find two designs at present, but I’m hoping they’ll be releasing more soon.
Disaster Designs up a travel beauty with their envelope style travel card
Perfect for the globe trotter who is currently stuck in the city, this airmail style travel card holder reminded me of sunnier times when I was dredging through the snow last November.
TFL’s take on travel card style
TFL has quite a wide range of travel card holders on their website (and does some quite nifty limited edition collaborations with artists and designers across the year.) I love the way that they have added texture into the range with their wooden travel card designs.
Paperchase pulls it off again
What can I say? Ice cream colours, girly designs, just lovely.
