Press Cards

Press cards, designed by the Arizona Newspapers Association, identify working journalists employed by member newspapers. Because it is printed on credit-card size plastic, instead of paper, it also can be clipped to a shirt or jacket, and will not tear or crumble away.

The card is issued only with an application or letter signed by the editor or publisher.

* Cards expire two years from order date.

Email the application and accompanying headshots to 

If you lose your press card, a $8 fee will be charged for a duplicate one.
