Using VitalChek for Birth Certificates!

The vitalchek.com website warns it could take over a week to receive birth certificates.  But I ordered mine on Monday and it arrived this afternoon (Thursday).  You can't ask for better service than that.  I only wish that they didn't change the look of the birth certificate.  My old one was on special very odd paper.  Hand-signed by all kinds of strange people and a dandy raised stamp-y thing.  White.  This one looks like a cheap fake check, much like the ones you get in the mail that say "For Demonstration Purposes Only" all over them.  Siiigh.  Oh, well.  Valid is valid, even if it doesn't look like what they issued 44 years ago.  I'm out $77, but I now have two birth certificates, just in case I need to provide proof that I was born to two different entities at once.  I now, once again, officially exist.

    1. I remarked that it was just as fake-looking as Obama's! Maybe **I** wasn't really born in Ohio... :)

  2. Original birth certificates are always nice, any further purchased ones are just photocopies. It costs too much to reproduce the fancy one.

    1. This one is definitely not a photocopy. It looks nothing like the original. I'm thinking they're very easy to mass-produce. We could have billions of American "citizens" out there with documents of this quality...

      Though I am impressed with Vitalchek's extremely fast service. And how quickly the folks in Cleveland printed off my birth certificate. I have to say that much.
