Glamorize Your Bank Checks with Pin-up Girls

By Alan Plastin

Absolutely nothing says glamour like the pin-up girls of vintage Hollywood. If you would like to make your personal bank checks a little more glamorous, then you should really think about getting retro-inspired pin-up girls checks. Aside from the fact that they look great, your checks will definitely be remembered.

In the 1940's, WWII was raging, but Hollywood was alive and kicking. The pin-up girls of that era graced magazines, calendars, and even playing cards. They were beautiful, glamorous, and sexy. With perfect hair and makeup, gorgeous clothing, and secret smiles, they were more than just sex symbols-they were icons. Men wanted to be with them, and women wanted to be them.

Not all pin-up girls were movie stars and not all movie stars were pin-up girls. In fact, it took something a little more than beauty and sex appeal to be considered a pin-up girl. A woman had to have glamour and a quality about her that set her apart from everyone else. She also had to be accessible, which was one of the reasons why pin-up girls became so popular-their images were mass-produced and had wide appeal.

One of the earliest pin-up girls was Betty Grable. You could find her posters "pinned up" in soldiers' lockers during the War. Another popular pin-up girl was the Gibson girl, who was actually an illustration. Other fashionable pin-up girls of the 1940s consisted of Jane Russell, Carmen Miranda, Lana Turner, Veronica Lake, Rita Hayworth, and Ava Gardner. In the 1950s, Betty Page, became one of the most popular pin-up girls of all time. Today, merchandise containing her image can still be bought, even though many of her modern fans were not even alive during her glory days.

While there are still pin-up girls these days, some fans argue that these modern women lack the glamour and style of the women in the past. Although posters can be purchased with images of the majority of popular female movie and televisions stars and models, the Golden Age of the sexy sirens of the past is over.

If you would like your personal bank checks to have something a little different and you love the 1940s and 1950s, then the pin-up girls checks and their vintage feel might be right up your alley. They come in 4 rotating images so each lovely girl will be different from the one before her. Not only do these checks look great, but they can be conversation pieces, too, and they can say a lot about your personality and individuality.

If you get your checks online from a safe site you can save as much as 50% off the price that you might have spent at your bank. The Internet is a good place to purchase bank checks at any rate because you have a wide selection to pick from. You can plan on getting your checks in around 5 days. Keep in mind that you need to have your routing number and checking account number handy when you place your order.
