    Personal Checks

    I need to order some new checks and was wondering if anyone has any idea if there are checks with the new logo on them? I found ones with Cy on them but I would rather have the new logo. Thanks in advance.

    Re: Personal Checks

    You can search around the web for places that allow you to make your own checks. We did that with some family photos and I was very pleased with them. (Sorry, it was a while back and I don't remember who it was, but there are several)

    A fair bit more expensive than your standard fare checks, but I thought it worth it (and we use maybe 2 checks a month, so they are lasting forever)

    I don't imagine there would be any copy infringement issues. Moreso, I don't think anyone would know.

    The ones we got allowed 4 different pictures - rotated every fourth check. So you could use the new logo, old mascot logos, picture of Hilton, picture fo the Jack, bunch of stuff.

    I tried to get golf balls with the new logo printed on them and they wouldn't do it for this reason. I ended up using the CF logo (which Jeremy agreed to) and they are pretty cool.

    Actually, that would be exactly what trademark infringement is. If you pay money to the University for the use of said trademark you'll be fine. Not that they'd go after you, but it would be.

    Do I need to be worried about the cops coming after me because I have a logo in my avatar?

    You should be OK, nobody is buying or selling it.

    Re: Personal Checks

    Why even get checks? You don't need them in this day and age. One of my biggest pet peeves is people writing checks in stores.

    Agreed, but in small towns they've never heard of debit or check cards. Always good to have a check book on you in Iowa.

    The picture doesn't matter as long as you write something like "donkey show" on the memo line.

    When I pay off gambling debts with a check to my friends I always write "back rubs" or "intimate favors" or "marital duties" in the for line. My friend had an awesome pick up line at the bank by a hot teller and blew it.
    "For back rubs? You must give good back rubs."
    he was so flustered he didn't even answer her.

    As a producer of personal checks, this hurts more than any post I've read in a long time

    To the original question, the only ones I know of have the whirlybird Cy logo. They look nice!


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    There's an idea. Work something out with Jeremy and get CF checks!

    Now you know how I feel when people post with complete disregard for the English language.
