I have often received email asking where people can order checks with a horse racing scene on them, but until now I had never found any. Finally I have found a service which will let you order personalized checks with your choice of a photo on them. Checks Your Way lets you upload your choice of photo to have custom checks or address labels printed using that as a background (you may view samples at their site). As you would expect, they cost more than regular checks but if you want to show you are a racing fan, what better way than this?
I have created four images that I thought many people would like, but if you have a special request I will try to fill it. Just remember that I am using my own photos (I can't use other people's due to copyright issues), so if you make a special request it will have to be from horses I have photographed. This will cover most big name horses for the past 4-5 years. Here are some from this year to get your started:
War Emblem winning the Kentucky Derby
Starting gate at Saratoga for the Go For Wand Handicap
Finish of the Arlington Million
To order checks, first pick out your image. I have already uploaded the standard ones above so you can just reference them by their file name to use them. If you want something other than the ones above, you can use your own photo or ask me for a different one and I will upload it for you. If you use your own, it needs to be at least 1600x800 pixels in size. Then just go to Checks Your Way and place your order online and follow the instructions. After you have your order number, email Checks Your Way and tell them your file is there with the file name and your invoice/order number so they can pick it up.
Check Checks Your Way for current pricing information.
