2018 OPA Photo ID Press Cards Now Available

OPA is offering high quality photo ID Press Cards to business member newspapers for $7 each. These press cards are perfect for reporters, photographers and any other staff members at your newspaper.

The hard, plastic badges – usable for a calendar year – feature your mugshot, along with your newspaper’s name and phone number. A clip at the top of the card makes it easy to attach to a lanyard, clothing or camera bag. The back of the card has the OPA contact information.

Orders MUST come from the publisher, general manager or editor. Sustaining members and associate members are not eligible for the photo ID press cards. Standard cardstock non-photo Press cards are still available for free to OPA members.
