What Image Do You Have on Your Checks?

I remember how excited I was to get my first checkbook.  I was away at college and chose my very own checks with the image I wanted on them.  I chose the Whale Scenes checks.  I felt so grownup to have my own checkbook and be able to pay my own bills with the money I had in my account.  I loved being able to choose from all the different scenes.

Then I worked in a grocery store at the university as a cashier.  I was amazed by how many different image checks I saw come through the lines!  There was Mickey and Minnie, Star Wars, Nature, Smurfs, and so many more!  It actually made my job a little more fun that way.  Like I was trying to see how many different check images I could find.

Recently, I was introduced to a company online called Colorful Images.  At Colorful Images, you’ll find low prices on your first order and reorders.  Plus, you can choose from over 100 personal check designs!  It’s super easy to order online and then you’ll receive your checks in the mail.  I had a hard time choosing just one, but I especially loved the Photo Checks!  You can use any photo you want to be used as the background image on your check.  How cool is that?

What is your favorite background?

    I remember wanting so many cute designs and having Snoopy checks in college! Now ours are plain with a light patterned background. I rarely write checks anymore!

  2. I remember when I got my first checkbook; I was too cheap to get any images so I just stuck with the generic background for awhile. Then one day I was inspired to get ‘fun’ checks as I called them, so I did! They’re cute little Japanese anime ^.^

    Like Jen, I rarely write any checks though. Lol
