I'm pretty much the same in that the only time I write checks now is when I can't pay online or with a debit card or if I don't have the cash. So it's been a few years since I've had to buy any.

I use checks to pay my horseís monthly boarding fee and sometimes the vet. Also for my psychologist. Everything else is pretty much debit card, I rarely have money on me.

I got tired of doing the "new customer" shuffle, the last few times I've just ordered through WalMart online. They have a pretty good selection of checks, and the price is pretty reasonable.

I'm looking for my inner athlete, but I'm afraid I may have eaten her. If I'm very quiet I can hear her screams of terror.

Current is just a short distance from where I live and I used to buy checks from them but haven't since we moved back to CO. This last time I just bought checks from the bank.

Bradford Exchange wine checks...



Universal Monster Checks I wish I could find! This is a collector's thing tho...



and this is one of the Elvira checks. I'd probably get these if they were still available. This was a set of 4 different designs.


You can also get photo personalized checks where you upload your own photo. I've never done that, they are more costly. But, Melissa, you could have Lucy on your checks :)

I've bought checks through several of the online personal check businesses, including Carousel Checks, Artistic Checks, Checks in the Mail, Checks Unlimited, Walmart, Designer Checks, CheckWorks, Promise Checks, and I'm probably forgetting one or two. I've been getting checks online for lots and lots of years. I switched up a lot because they all seem to have first time customer deals.

Styles Checks used to have Elvira checks. I wish they still did. :)

Now, I just google the type of checks I want and search for the designs and best price.

At first I was nervous about putting my information online like that, but so far everything has been great, All the checks I've gotten haven't had any problems with being used at my bank or at any store that takes checks.

Back when we opened our account at the credit union and I saw how much ordering through them was, I started looking for better deals. That was such a long time ago. 20 years maybe? longer maybe? I'm not sure.This was back when the banks used to send all your canceled checks back. I had boxes and boxes (shoeboxes) full! I'm so glad they just scan them now.

Mine are Americana. I don’t use them that often so I have them for about 2 years and still have 2 or 3 more boxes. Prior to that I had Boyd bears

Iíve had Disney villain checks before, as well as pirates of the Caribbean and many cute flowery designs and Christian designs. I think I might go creepy this time, a change from my tropical scenes. I canít find universal monsters or supernatural or Elvira although I know they once existed.

Iíve always liked getting fun checks.

I have minion checks. Before that I had Phineas and Ferb.

I have never thought about getting horror themed checks. I think that would be awesome. Right now I just have generic ones that come from the bank. I will have to get new ones soon after we move.

I like the haunted house looking ones or the My Little Demon ones. Those looked sweet.

Do you use personal checks? I do when needing to pay a bill through the mail and I'm about out so I've been shopping. And... being a horror lover, I wondered if there was something out there other than Jack Skellington :) there are..have you seen these?

So, if you use personal checks, what do yours look like?

Right now my current ones are just Hello Kitty and Christmas ones I use in December. My "go to" design for everything else is beach scenes and those are what I'm out of. I've not decided if I want to go beach scenes again or not. I have had Nightmare Before Christmas ones before as well as Lord of the Rings. Am I obsessing too much? LOL!
