Polaroid Releases First Printer from Gaga's Grey Label, 22 June 2013 [cached]
The Grey Label family will include the GL10 Instant Printer and two other already announced products, as well as a "smart camera phone," software, and a "whole ecosphere" of other items collaboratively designed with Lady Gaga, said Polaroid Chairman Bobby Sager, at a press event in New York City.
"We won't just think 'outside the box.' We'll crush the box," Sager contended, in a presentation at the launch event for the GL10 - a small, portable instant printer designed for use with images stored in cell phones, PCs, and digital cameras.
In an interview with PrinterComparison at the launch, Sager later outlined his broader vision for the Grey Line as well as the role Lady Gaga plays in product design.
All Grey Label products will need to have "something 'Polaroid' about them," Sager elaborated, pointing to Polaroid's long-time heritage in instant printing. "Someone will have to convince me that this is a product Polaroid should do."
Although engineers in Polaroid's R&D department are actually crafting the consumer products, Lady Gaga is taking a highly active role as a "30,000-foot inspirational person," the Polaroid chairman told me. "We didn't want just some kind of celebrity spokesperson."
The singer participates in and makes suggestions at Polaroid product planning meetings, according to Sager. Polaroid used input from Gaga in deciding on the GL10's leather-and-brushed metal casing, for example. On another future product, which Sager wouldn't specify, Lady Gaga has given advice about "colors and where the buttons should be. Added Sager: "She's very interested in how to make the products 'cool,' and in how people will use the products in their daily lives."
Sager said Polaroid has already signed on for one three-year contract for Lady Gaga's service, that he expects to ink her to at least one more three-year contract, and that she might even take an equity stake in Polaroid. Polaroid's new GL10 printer uses 3 x 4-inch ZINK paper. The ZINK technology is made up of a mixture of CYM dye crystals. The heat from the camera activates the crystals to create photo images.
The new 15-ounce printer is larger than Polaroid's previous Pogo Instant Mobile Printer, and it prints out much more quickly, producing photos in less than one minute, Sager told me.

By Bobby Sager
"Bobby Sager has been not only a most generous and dedicated benefactor of the Science for Monks program since it was launched 12 years ago, but also he is a direct witness to its flourishing.
Bobby Sager is a tough-minded businessman who made a fortune by seeing opportunity where others have not. In 2000, Bobby and his wife and kids founded the Sager Family Traveling Foundation & Roadshow ( Three-dozen trips later, the Sagers have established their own special brand of hands-on, eyeball-to-eyeball philanthropy. With Bobby, there are no handouts, no charity. His philanthropy uses business principles and business accountability, whether it's fostering entrepreneurship in Rwanda and Palestine, training teachers in Pakistan, or a leadership program for Tibetan monks.
Using his camera as a way to connect with people, Sager's photographs have been featured in numerous publications and have been seen by over 4 million people at concerts and events around the world. He authored The Power of the Invisible Sun (Chronicle Books, 2009), which was featured on NBC's The Today Show and ABC World News, and UNICEF selected the book as one of its featured publications.
Sager has been a pioneer in catalyzing Young Presidents' Organization (YPO) as a platform to make a difference. In 2001, Bobby was a founding chairman of YPO Peace Action Network, which convenes business leaders from different sides of conflicts. That network has now grown into eight Social Enterprise Networks with 6,000 members who are engaged in making a difference all over the world. Sager has been recognized by YPO as the first ever recipient of their Global Humanitarian Award, and he recently won YPO's most prestigious Hickok Award for distinguished service. He is also Honorary Consul General for the governments of both Rwanda and Nepal and has given speeches at venues around the world including the General Assembly Hall of the UN and the Sydney Opera House.
Bobby was the Executive Producer for A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints (2006), winner of Sundance Film Festival's Special Jury Prize and Venice Film Festival's Critics' Week Prize. His philanthropy was the inspiration for the NBC prime-time drama The Philanthropist (2009). Bobby received a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics from Brandeis University and a Master's in Management from Yale University.
