The Austrian State Printing House (OeSD) does not only produce Austria’s stamps and travel documents for Austrian citizens. As a “High Security Printer” the OeSD produces security products for 60 countries worldwide.

The Austrian State Printing House (OeSD) was founded by Emperor Franz I in 1804. Today OeSD produces a wide range of products including unique stamps and security passports with fingerprints for Austrian citizens. OeSD manufactures up to 5,000 new passports a day for the Austrian market alone.

As the world’s first security printer, OeSD received the highest possible qualification from the International Confederation for Printing and Allied Industries (Intergraf), being designated as a “High Security Printer”. An accreditation made possible by the technical expertise of the 180 staff members, cutting-edge technology and centuries of experience.

More than 60 nations worldwide trust in products from OeSD - the most recent State Printer customers are the Maldives, Montenegro and Papa New Guinea. In addition to personalised security documents, such as the new security passports with chip, identity cards and driver’s licenses, security prints such as stamps rank among the best known security products from OeSD.
