As I mentioned in my post for Regal’s Passport, I like tricks that have some kind of travel idea to them.

Here’s one for TAG by Chastain Criswell and JB Magic.

Rather than using a regular deck, take a BF deck an write the names of 52 well know cities on them
or use a deck from one of the Airlines. In either case, you would need to change the gimmick.

Get a hold of or make those baggae tags that the airlines have, available for free at the airport, for people
who don’t have they’re own. Use these in place of the tags that come with the trick. And of course, they have
a place on them for the spectator to write their name.

Your story could be about how luggage is lost and eventually found.

***See my post on Regal’s Passport to get more mileage out of this deck.

Here's a couple of ideas, if your not comfortable hand lettering the words on the cards.

You could use a letter stencil. This could have a nice quality for the travel theme. Just don't try to be too perfect. By this I mean, don't try and letter the words straight with the card. Put the words on angles. That way it has a more random feel.

Another idea is to get a rubber stamp alphabet kit. Scrapbookers use these a lot.
This would give the words more of the feel of a passport stamp. This is something I'm currently exploring. Just need to find the right type font and letter size.
