See billions of dollars being printed at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP). As the U.S. Government's security printer, the BEP is responsible for the design, engraving, and printing of all U.S. paper currency.

Currency is produced at its facilities in DC and Fort Worth, Texas. A world leader in printing technology, the Bureau also produces portions of U.S. passports, materials for Homeland Security, military identification cards, Immigration and Naturalization Certificates, White House invitations, Treasury obligations, and other U.S. securities.

See the various stages of currency production, beginning with large, blank sheets of paper, and ending with wallet-ready bills!
