Secret Service Poster for USSS agents and fans of the USSS. President Kennedy in motorcade in Patrick Street, Cork, in Ireland on June 28, 1963.
The United States Secret Service (USSS) is an American federal law enforcement agency under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Until 2003, the Service was part of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
The U.S. Secret Service has two distinct areas of responsibility:
- Financial Crimes, covering missions such as prevention and investigation of counterfeit U.S. currency, U.S. treasury securities, and investigation of major fraud.
- Protection, which entails ensuring the safety of current and former national leaders and their families, such as the President, past Presidents, Vice Presidents, presidential candidates, visiting heads of state, and foreign embassies.
The Secret Service’s initial responsibility was to investigate counterfeiting of U.S. currency, which was rampant following theU.S. Civil War. The agency then evolved into the United States’ first domestic intelligence and counterintelligence agency. Many of the agency’s missions were later taken over by subsequent agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation(FBI), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and Internal Revenue Service (IRS). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Secret_Service.
Paper options: When buying this poster you can choose between the premium poster paper and the vinyl self-sticking poster paper. The 2 paper choices are very different and serve different purposes.
Vinyl Self-Sticking Paper – The self-sticking paper is vinyl and it adheres to your wall or any other surface much like a sticker. Just peel off the backing and slap it on your wall. It can be moved as often as you want and it will not lose its ability to stick. The vinyl will not be as brilliant looking as the premium poster but the advantage is you will not have to buy a frame.
Premium Poster Paper – American made next-generation 8 Mil Production Gloss Photo Paper that produces amazing prints. The gloss finish provides a wider color gamut for sharper details. This is not the cheap and thin paper used to make posters that are sold in the big box stores. Because the paper requires a ton of ink to saturate it during printing you must be cautious when handling your poster to avoid leaving a finger-print. Posters printed on this paper need to be placed inside a nice frame to protect them from dust and curious hands. Pair your poster with a nice frame and will become a piece of wall decor that garners attention.
