I suspect Jeff and Stephanie have their annual top-10 gift list brewing, but here's an idea I just tripped across today. Holiday World and Kennywood checks. I have no idea who runs this business (and I assume they have the proper permission to display park and ride logos on the checks) but what a neat idea.
I met a guy at SFGAm last year that was thinking about doing a check business and I remember him saying that he was doing Kennywood and that he had to get all sorts of permission to do it. Maybe this is the same guy...
The pics of the coasters are great... I think the set as a whole, though, suffers from actually having too much variety.
I like them, I just think that they should've chosen quality over quantity. The coaster, flume, and Zinga ones are nice... even the antique car and rapids shots. The shots of the signs, for example, are less than thrilling. The wave pool could be anywhere, and doesn't really show off the park that well.
If they'd have cut this down to 12 quality images instead of 24 I think it'd be a much better project.
And to answer a couple of questions, Yes Bob its me.
About the variety, we wanted to offer something different. When you order the Holiday World checks, each book has 4 different images. So in an order you receive 12 different images. We didn't just want to focus on coasters, especially since this was about the park in whole, not just the coasters.
Lastly, I just want to say that Paula, Will and all of the gang at Holiday World have been absolutely wonderful to work with on this project. They wanted to be the first park offering this, and we were more than happy to oblige. I would like to personally thank everyone over there for all of the support they have offered.
(Start shameless product plug) By the way, even if you already have checks, you can get a handy dandy Holiday World Checkbook Cover which by the way has a lifetime warranty on the cover and the logo. (End shameless product plug)

I had some quick questions about the checks, so I wrote an email to the contact email listed on the website, firstname.lastname@example.org. Unfortunately it was returned by mailer-daemon saying there is no such email address. Is there a different one I should send it to? I don't want to bother everyone else by writing my questions here.
