April 10 — Polaroid
Corporation and Avery Dennison Corporation have
launched an affordable, easy-to-create instant photo identification badge kit
that contains everything needed to produce cut-and-paste photo ID badges.
The Polaroid Pocket ID instant camera along with easy-to-print-and-format
name badges from Avery Dennison are included in each kit. This is the second
product launched by the two corporations after forming a global strategic
marketing alliance announced last year. The alliance combines instant imaging
solutions from Polaroid with Avery brand self-adhesive and other labeling,
printing and organizing solutions.
“Until the launch of the Pocket ID Kit, there was not a complete solution
for cut-and- paste identification badges that did not require expensive
cameras and film, cutting and high pressure lamination,” says Barbara Poremba,
group marketing manager, special events, Polaroid Corporation. “The pocket
camera film format makes it easy to take one appropriate sized portrait for
the Avery badge blanks.”
“This is a product that shows the strength of our alliance,” says Galen
Wong, marketing director, organization and presentation products, Avery
Dennison. “With a great instant imaging solution from Polaroid and easy-to-
format-and-print name badges from Avery Dennison, businesses and other
organizations now have a quick, affordable name badge solution.”
Creating a Pocket ID badge can be done quickly and easily via computer or
by hand. With a computer and a laser or inkjet printer, company specific
layouts can be created. Badges also may be hand lettered or custom printed by
a local printer.
The new identification kit targets organizations that require occasional
name badge solutions for various individuals, including temporary workers,
part-time staff and cleaning crews; construction, electrical and plumbing
contractors who must enter private property to conduct their business; civic
organizations, clubs, special events and sports teams; and schools that create
matching child/parent safety credentials for increased security.
The Pocket ID includes a Polaroid Pocket ID instant camera, two 12-exposure
packs of sticky back instant film, two AA alkaline batteries, 24 Avery badge
blanks and 24 badge clips.
Pricing and Availability
The Polaroid Pocket ID has a suggested U.S. retail price of $68.99.
Refill kits that include two 12-exposure packs of sticky back instant film, 24
badge blanks and clips are available for a suggested list price of $40.99.
Pocket ID and Pocket ID refills will be available later this spring at office
superstores. For more information on the Pocket ID Kit, consumers may access
