    in, with or of these designs

    Suppose that you are shopping in a store which sells custom-made wallets and keychains. A salesman is showing you a catalogue of designs. This is what you say to him as you are pointing to the designs you want.


    (ex) You say, "I would like to order a wallet in (or with or of) this design and a keychain in (or with or of) that design."

    I don't know which preposition(s) work(s) in this sentence. Please explain it. Thank you very much.

    I'd use "in".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
