What is Economy?
Economy Board is lightweight like the popular "foam board" and is equal in price, but does not dent as easily and is waterproof. It is a corrugated plastic that has hollow grooves that run down the center, and is very lightweight (about 2lbs). This is our most popular check material. Ask us about hinging options to fit on an airplane.

This check has a gloss finish so take some test pictures before your presentation to get the best angle to reduce the glare. Can be used for check presentations with 2 to 4 people in the picture.
Remember to use highly lit places to make sure everybody's face can be seen in the photo. If you will be sending your picture into the newspaper or an online blog, then be sure to include a caption that they can use including people's names (if given permission) and a reason for the giving of the check.
Can you cash this check?
If you put a real routing number on this check, as well as a legal signature, then it can be taken to a bank and they should be able to cash the check. Since the purpose of this check is to get publicity while making a donation, we recommend you present a regular check along with the large check so you are not broadcasting your routing numbers. We have also seen our large checks be used as funny gifts to friends, gifts for loved ones, wedding anniversaries, graduations, and birthdays.
Dry Erase Checks
Are these large checks rewritable?
Yes: These Economy Dry Erase Large Checks are laminated with a clear, dry erase finish that not only looks good, but it also is very functional. We print all of the lines and the background of your choosing, and you can fill in the blanks of your choosing with an Expo brand dry erase marker or liquid chalk marker. We recommend erasing the writing directly after use to make sure it erases easier.
Does it matter what kind of marker?
Dry erase is the most important part in choosing a marker. Wet erase won't hold very well on the lamination. It is not as important, but the Expo brand or liquid chalk markers tend to work best. The ink used in Expo brand's dry erase markers works really well with our dry erase lamination.
Because this check can be used so many different times, we recommend keeping the box we ship to you. This allows you to keep your check protected between photo-ops because you can keep it stored in a closet and not worry about it getting bent. Always remove the dry erase writing before storing as the ink tends to dry up over time and becomes very difficult to remove.
