The problem: Shipping costs were too high for a 30"x60" size Giant Check. The answer: cutting the check halfway through on the backside to allow it to fold. We supply two pieces of white tape to apply to the back of your Giant check in order to keep it open. Generally shipping costs on a non-folded check this size start around $100., by folding the shipping costs are reduced dramatically. (see video tab)

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. That way you are not broadcasting to the world your routing numbers. We have also seen our large checks be used as funny gifts to friends, gifts to loved ones, and wedding anniversaries.
