IL – June 18, 2009; Nearly 35 years after the final American
helicopter flew out of Vietnam, the memory of more than 50,000
American men and women who lost their lives in the conflict is
preserved forever in the black marble walls of the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial. Since it was first unveiled in 1982, it has become as
recognizable as any other monument in Washington, D.C. and a place
of healing for countless veterans of the war and their families.
Checks, an online provider of personal, business, computer, laser
and bank checks worldwide, recently announced the release of “The
Wall,” a stirring photograph adorning the company’s
newest addition to its American Pride line of commemorative checks.
The design on the checks
respectfully depicts a portion of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial
with a proud U.S. Marine saluting in the foreground. Names of
many of the fallen can be clearly read in the design.
“The wall is such a stark reminder of the selflessness that
our fighting men and women exemplify,” Andy Crim, president
of Carousel Checks, said. “We received many requests from
veterans and their families for a Vietnam-themed design. We chose
this one because it is both heartening and solemn.”
The Vietnam Wall design joins a growing number of Americana-based

“Obviously, veterans of the Vietnam War identify with it,”
Crim said. “But so do the families and survivors of the
men and women whose names are on the wall.” Crim added that
Carousel Checks has already received many “thank you’s”
from people who have ordered the online
checks at the company’s site, carouselchecks.com.
“They’re truly moved by the design,” Crim said.
“People tell me that the checks instill a feeling of pride
every time they open their check books.”
Carousel Checks was founded over 40 years ago by Crim’s
parents as a regular check printing company for banks around the
country. When the internet made custom printing of checks a reality
for many consumers, Carousel was one of the first companies to
pursue the consumer end of the checks business.
CarouselChecks offers scores of check designs in a variety of
categories, from Americana and sports to religion, education,
sports, wildlife and seasonal designs.
Crim said that the Wall check design is available in a variety
of package sizes. Retail prices range for $10 to $80, based on
the quantity of checks
ordered. The entire CarouselChecks product line is available online
