Secure Federal Credentials from GPO
Building on the success of the U.S. Passport, GPO has won recognition for its expertise in secure credential design, materials selection, security printing, personalization, and delivery.
U.S. Passport - Department of State

An arsenal of printed and electronic security features make the Passport tough to counterfeit but easy to authenticate. GPO sends blank Passports, their integrated circuits securely locked, to the State Department for personalization.

HSPD-12 PIV Card - Department of Homeland Security

GPO strengthens the security of these personal identity verification cards with layers of precision printing and design. The cards help reduce identity fraud and protect personal privacy, government facilities, and information systems.

Trusted Traveler Card - Customs and Border Protection

GPO designers integrated multiple layers of printed, optical, tactile, and electronic features to produce one of the most secure cards in government. Trusted Traveler cards streamline border crossing for pre-approved travelers entering the United States from Canada or Mexico.

Medicare Beneficiary Card - Department of Health & Human Services

Medicare beneficiaries in Puerto Rico receive embossed plastic cards that are personalized and fulfilled by GPO. They are the first Medicare cards in the United States and its territories to be upgraded from paper.

Presidential Inaugural Badge - U.S. Capitol Police

GPO produced credentials to help law enforcement officers on the Inaugural platform and along the parade route, making it easier to validate the identity of those closest to the President.

Law Enforcement Officer Badge - Inspectors General

Designed for production in quantities of 30 to 3,000, personalization of this credential takes place within customer facilities, reducing data handling and cost, and making it possible to issue individual credentials on demand.
