History

The history of the establishment of STATE PRINTING WORKS OF SECURITIES, state enterprise , is linked to the foundation of the independent Czechoslovak state, the need for its own currency system and ensuring the production of banknotes. The interest of the state was to secure its comprehensive production of Czechoslovak paper money at a top level in its domestic printing works. The newly created National Bank of Czechoslovakia started production in its new banknote printing works in January 1928. Nowadays, the printing works offers its customers complete services in the field of printing production from graphic design, typography, printing preparation, and printing itself, up to delivery of the order to its destination. Its main products include banknotes, documents, securities, other security printed materials, plastic cards, and non-security printed products. The entire process meets the requirements for a high degree of protection against abuse, and great emphasis is placed on minimising the risks associated with the breach of security policy.
