BEP joins social media

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing recently launched its official Twitter and Facebook channels – @USMoneyfactory – “with the aim of increasing the accessibility and availability of BEP news.”


“I am very excited to use these platforms to highlight the great work that happens at BEP every day,” said Director Len Olijar. “There is so much to share about our nation’s currency and the U.S. currency manufacturing process. We want to make sure that information about our important mission to develop and print U.S. currency is more accessible to a wider audience.”

In addition to posting its latest news and information, the BEP says its social media updates will also feature artifacts and other information from BEP’s Historical Resource Center.

It also plans to provide security feature awareness tips, tour and visitor center updates, educational videos, and press releases.
