Design Your Own Bus Pass Holder: How It's Made
Your printed travel card holders are hand made by our expert team of leather workers and seamstresses.
First, your designs are printed onto your choice of leather or faux leather. You can design both the front and back of the card holder, as well as the pocket flaps inside. Therefore a total of 3 pieces of leather will be printed.
The pieces are then handstitched together with a light thread colour, so that it does not take away from your beautiful designs.
Once complete, your custom travel card holder is quality checked and sent on its travels to you, so you can go on your travels, too.
We do not recommend trying to machine wash any of our leather products. To clean your custom travel card holder, simply use a damp cloth to wipe clean.
Your leather printed travel card holder is comprised of three separate pieces of Nappa leather, with the largest part folded over to create the front and back of the cover. This means you have 4 different areas to think about when you design your own bus pass holder. You might want to do one pattern all over, with contrasting inside flaps, or something different on each panel for a quirky and truly unique look.
The design interface will allow you to experiment with designs and see how they fit. The hashed out areas will not be printed, so please make sure your designs fit properly into the safe.
Once you've decided on your patterns, you can view how they look on your product in the 'product view' and also choose which leather finish you would like; smooth or textured.
You could add your initials using the text tools of the front of your custom travel card holder, or hide your name away in the inside to add a final personal touch.
Design your own bus pass holder with bright colours and vivid patterns, and you'll never leave on it on the side when rushing out of the door again. The custom travel card holder is perfect for when you need to travel light - there's room for another card in the holder so you can have everything you need in your pocket.
Design your own bus pass holder with your company logo on for your commuting staff. If you pay office travel fare for your staff, provide them with a company card holder, or give one to everyone in their new-starter induction pack. You could even print each one with a different colleague's initials on, so nobody misplaces them. Staff can keep a few business cards in the second pocket of the holder, just in case opportunity arises when they're out and about.
Offer your customers printed travel card holders customised with your designs. They're a great little drop shipping product that's a perfect gifting item or commuter essential. Add your brand logo to the inside panel.

Nappa leather is a really high quality, lightweight calf leather that comes textured or smooth. It is known for having a soft feel and is perfect for printing directly onto.
What areas can I design?
The custom travel card holder is made of 3 leather pieces, with the largest part folding over to create both the back and front of the holder. Both the front and back of the holder can be designed separately, as well as the two pockets.
Can you use the travel card holder for other cards?

What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
We advise providing images in the RGB colour space. Specifically using the sRGB image profile, to achieve best colour results.What does this mean? In your editing software choose RGB as the working space, and assign the image profile as sRGB (full name sRGB IEC61966-2.1)
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better-finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding. If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfilment.
Please note: As everything we provide is handmade to order, all measurements may vary slightly.
