The Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) announced that on August 22, 2011 it will raise the prices for several Uncut Currency Sheets. These BEP products include crisp, uncirculated notes from designated Federal Reserve Banks.
For years the BEP has been offering them in values of $1, $2, $5, $10, $20 and $50. On Wednesday, the bureau provided updated pricing for the three smallest notes in the four to thirty-two subject sizes.
The price increases for the $1 sheets will range from a low of $0.75 for a 4 subject sheet to a high of $6.00 for a 32 subject sheet. Prices will be raised most for the $5 products, with a 4 subject sheet up $2.00 and a 32 subject sheet up $13.00. The new product prices by note, size and quantities follow:

About the BEP
The Bureau of Engraving and Printing is the largest producer of security documents in the United States. The bureau prints billions of Federal Reserve Notes for delivery to the Federal Reserve System each year (the BEP does not produce coins — all coinage is minted by the United States Mint). These notes are produced at facilities in Washington, DC, and Fort Worth, Texas. In addition to U.S. currency, the bureau produces several other security documents such as portions of U.S. passports, materials for Homeland Security, military identification cards, and Immigration and Naturalization Certificates.

Of course, after that SNAFU with the new $100 dollar notes they had to re-coupe the money somewhere.
