This particular Giant Check is printed on a high-gloss dry-erase media Checks are mounted on “Gator-Board”, a material that is “pool-table flat”, extremely stiff, strong, and lightweight. We do not use “foamboard” due to its fragility. There are cheaper, flimsier giant, oversized custom-printed checks on the market which are mounted on a flexible backing called Sintra. They are rolled so as to fit into a small box, and some companies claim they can be unrolled and will lie flat again. Hey! We have some land for sale in the Everglades! Remember: in almost all cases in life, you get what you pay for.. If you need the best, this is it. The Giant Check at your corporate meeting can say class, or it can say “Hey! We’re in a little financial trouble here so we had to buy this flimsy knock-off check!” We will not sell plastic-backed, laminated checks such as Sintra, because Sintra-type materials are expensive yet tend to look cheap (they’re extremely thin and tend to be “wobbley”), and because laminates tend to bubble and delaminate in time, and laminates are also not true dry-erase surfaces and will become more and more difficult to clean. Laminate material also tends to be soft and easily scratched. Beware the checks that are printed onto plain paper media but laminated so they can be called “dry-erase”. Over the years we’ve seen a number of little businesses come along who want to try their hand at Giant Checks. They usually last from a few months to a couple of years and leave a legacy of irritated customers behind. We’ve been making Giant Checks for many, many years. We know what works, what doesn’t (and what should have never been tried in the first place).

GIGO means: Garbage In, Garbage Out. If you supply a poor quality logo image, it will print on your check(s) as a poor quality logo image!Are these checks actually cashable? Will the bank really honor them?

Yes. Unless you use non-real numbers in the account and routing fields (e.g. 123456), or unless your bank manager / president is just a stink-butt. We’ve been advised of one (1) case, out of many thousands of giant checks sold and cashed at banks, in which the bank manager refused to process the check. The normal procedure is for the bank to duplicate the check data onto a special form (which all banks have) which can be processed through their machinery. It is the same form they use to process damaged / crumpled / torn checks of normal size. They will not usually keep your Giant Check. Assuming your check data is valid and there’s money in the account, you should get your loot on the spot. Most banks see it as something “fun”, and which promotes good will among its customers.

Recently a local grade school held a competition in which each class competed to create the wackiest, most unusual check. The class to win the $25 prize wrote theirs on a watermelon. The bank cashed it without a hitch. A personal check is nothing more than a contract. As long as all the elements of the contract are present and legible, a personal check (which is essentially an IOU), may be (and has been) printed on a drink coaster, a t-shirt, someone’s bare back, someone’s bare front, a forearm, the sole of a foot, a baseball bat, a square of toilet paper (unused we presume), upon the actual bill that caused the check to be written, on a condom using a felt pen, and no doubt a thousand other media types that we’ve never heard of. In the case of a personal check which cannot physically go through the automated processing machinery, the bank will often issue a second document, of regular size and using the data from the gag check, and will process and cancel that.

Giant gag checks can be used for fun, to pay off a long-standing debt to a friend, to make the last payment on a 200 year mortgage. Or to use as a birthday present (these make GREAT birthday presents), or to pay your horrendously large bar-tab. Giant gag checks also have nefarious uses. Pay your tax bill with one, for instance. You’ll probably get audited every year for the rest of your life, but even that can be entertaining. Use them to pay debts you really don’t think you owe, but which you’re stuck paying—like the repair bill on your car, your car registration, your electric bill, your rent, parking ticket fines… Since these are a legal document, the payee is hard-pressed to come up with a legitimate reason to refuse it. If they send it back, you’ll have proof that you tried to pay the bill, but the payee refused to accept it. Tell them to feel free to contact you at some point in the future when they are more interested in accepting your perfectly legal payment.

Use these to pay your medical malpractice insurance. They’ll get the point. And they’re especially gratifying to use when paying a speeding ticket or other infraction. We use them, for instance, to pay for our office space. Just give it some thought—you’ll think of someone you want to notice you.

Before you order please consider this:
We receive orders all the time which are incomplete or which contain some element or special instruction which is unclear. Most of these are received as rush orders, so we naturally try to process them quickly. But we cannot complete your order if we have a question and cannot reach you. Please, please, we beg you, check your email periodically for the first 12-24 hours or so after placing any order, but especially a rush order. Thank you

What kind of dry-erase pen
or marker should I use?

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of dry-erase markers available in every drug store and office supply depot. Most fall into two categories:

(1) Slightly more durable, harder to erase
(2) Less durable, very easy to erase

The “Sanford” brand dry erase markers are designed in such a way as to not easily brush off if someone accidentally touches the board with a piece of clothing. Many dry-erase removal products are on the market — the Sanford brand pens and markers generally require the use of one of these products for complete removal. Isopropyl alcohol will also remove Sanford brand markers (be careful not to let alcohol or any other fluid come in contact with the back side of the media). Most commercial dry-erase removal products are alcohol-based. Remember, alcohol is FLAMMABLE (it’s used as fuel in dragsters). Keep away from flames and heat sources!

Marks-a-Lot dry-erase markers (by Avery) can be removed with any soft cloth — no remover required. We suggest using only this marker.
