Wizard of Oz Checks
There’s No Place Like Home…On Your Bank Checks
There are few movies that have the fan base and fascination of The Wizard of Oz. Years and years after it was first released to the cinema, people still collect memorabilia from the film and watch it over and over. There are few movies lines quoted as much as "There's no place like home" or "We're not in Kansas anymore." Now, you can even carry personal bank checks with scenes from the famous movie.
The Wizard of Oz not only has a charming storyline, but it has extremely likable characters that the audience roots for. After all, who doesn't love the cowardly lion or the bumbling scarecrow? And what about the stoic Tin Man? Even the Wicked Witch is considered one of the best movie villains.
Considered to be a modern fairytale, the storyline itself is simple enough to be followed by children, but complex enough that even adults can find it entertaining. After all, most everyone understands the desire of wanting to return home and needing your friends around you during the tough times.
The movie itself has been on several "Best Movies of All Time" lists. The theme song, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow", was even listed as the Greatest Movie Song of All Time by the American film institute. Some people believe that it is the most watched film in American cinematic history.
It's probably difficult to pick just one favorite character or scene from The Wizard of Oz. Luckily, some personal bank checks offer rotating scenes on their checks. These are checks that have as many as 8 different images in one box of checks. They're good because not only are you getting nice looking checks with great images, but each one is different than the one before it.
You can also find duplicate Wizard of Oz checks. These are good because a carbon copy of each check is left in the checkbook. When it comes time to balance yor checkbook, these make great records.
Some Wizard of Oz checks even have messages inscribed on them, straight from the movie itself! Some of the popular messages are "I'm melting," "Some people without brains do an awful lot of talking", and "Are you a good witch or a bad witch?"
You can even find coordinating checkbook covers, address labels, and other mailing accessories to complement your checks. A matching checkbook cover could be bound in leather with a beautiful image of Dorothy setting off down the yellow brick road. Popular address labels feature Dorothy's ruby red slippers.
In the past, it was sometimes expensive to order personal checks from your bank that contained images. Today, you don't have to worry about price anymore, thanks to the Internet. By ordering online, you can save as much as 50% off the price that you might pay at your local bank. The delivery time is about 5 days, which is pretty much the amount of time it would take your bank to get the checks to you. In some cases, you might even get them faster by ordering online!
