    Hi
    Im desperate to find who makes thes in the USA I have looked at them and they have no manufactors marks or anything on them at all.

    I hope you know what im talking about, its the badges around the staffs neck that have an idea card and also holds thier business cards.

    Any directions to telephone numbers or websites would be a great help.

    Are you sure they're outsourcing these?

    Are you sure the Apple Human Resource Department isn't making these themselves.

    I'm sure you won't find out, either. This type of thing is a tight-lipped secret. Even store managers don't know who they come from.

    I checked on ebay (I searched under Apple Staff Badges) but I didn't have any luck.

    They did, however have staff t-shirts. Cool.

    If you use ebay, maybe you could set up a search for "Apple Staff Badge" so that results (if any) are mailed to you. That's what I do when I am looking for something in ebay.

    Not sure if this is any help - but good luck !

    Surely, if you really needed one (ie you were an Apple employee) you wouldn't have any trouble getting hold of one? :rolleyes:

    Basicly Im opening up a huge apple reseller store here in the UK and the ID tags are a great idea for both my external and internal sales teams, I only want them because I cant find anyone else that has both an ID card and business card holder in one design apart from the Apple Staff!!

    Guys, I think millypede is only looking for the plastic holder for the ID badges, not looking to actually get a badge. :D There are plenty of reasonable uses for the plastic holders, such as in a retail store for employees to wear as he indicated in the post before this one.

    I can't see Apple HR making the plastic sleeve themselves...look at a site like this or Google "2 pocket clear id card holder" or something like that.

    The third one down in the above link might be similar to what you are looking for..I'm not sure though.

    Good luck! :)

    I know they are not the best pictures in the world but they are the only ones I can find on my laptop at the moment.

    I hope this clears up the confusion a little more.
