The Imperial Government Printing Office of the Sultanate of Occussi-Ambeno was founded upon our independence in 1968.
The first press it used was an English-made Adana, an excellent machine for letterpress printing. This press produced many of the early stamps and overprints for the country, as well as luggage labels, self-adhesive stickers, checks, and airline and ship travel tickets. Later, a wonderful Heidelberg platen press was acquired, and used extensively.
Today, the press is commonly known by its initials KDPN (for Kantor Diraja Penchetakan Negara, = Imperial Government Printing Office in Bahasa Negara) and much of its output is computer-originated. The move to digital printing and lasers resulted in the attractive full-color stamps of 2000 and later.
As well as printing stamps and stationery for Occussi-Ambeno's
various government departments, the KDPN
also helps several allies and friends by producing stamps for them too.
