Burson-Marsteller is agency partner to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and is working with the bureau on the roll-out of the new $100 bill.
Stephen Colbert is not a fan, and jokingly asked his viewers to let him know their thoughts on the new bills by mailing them to him, with an attached note containing their thoughts.
Burson has worked on previous currency roll outs going back several years, an agency spokesperson told PRNewser today. The agency won a five-year, $36-million government contract in December 2006 to handle currency roll-outs, beating out Weber Shandwick and Fleishman-Hillard.
