For over 100 years the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) was the most important designer, engraver and printer of American postage stamps. Trace the evolution of the BEP and examine its involvement in the development, design and printing of U.S. postage stamps. Attention will be given to the advances in stamp production sparked by postal authority pressure and expectations. Historical and political context will shed light on decisions that affected stamp design during this time period.
