The Bureau of Engraving and Printing revealed a pair of new
communication methods on March 23 when it launched its official Twitter and Facebook social media 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.”
