The Preserve Your Travel Card allows travelers to send an object they found on their journey to friends and loved ones back home

Went somewhere so amazing that a picture won’t cut it? Haruka Shinji, a Japanese illustrator with a focus on designs based around travel, created the Preserve Your Travel Card. It comes with a small window panel ideal for sharing a physical memento with a loved one. The object goes between the two plastic sheets to preserve the item as it travels to the card recipient. When they open it up, they can remove the object and feel something that came from many miles away. The card also has a blank area for the traveler to write a message about the object or experience.

The card is being sold on the Spoon & Tamago website for Japanese design, but it is currently sold out. The shop has set up an email list to notify customers when it comes back in stock.
