When it comes to applying the word “designer” to the purchase of checks, it isn’t quite the same as in the world of haute couture, where the latest styles are cranked out by the likes of Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Giorgio Armani. Designer checks actually refers more to a straying away from the traditional blue bank check and into the world of almost endless colors, shapes, images and scenes to decorate your financial exchange notes.
The fact is there are so many check designs that it can be overwhelming to narrow down what is possible when you want to purchase exciting checks. I’ve created this overview to give you a look into the main category options and make the journey to a more fun and interesting checkbook a bit more direct.
At the top of my list when shopping for checks are the designs available for sports themes. All four major pro sports have checks available for each team. Yes, you can have checks to show your support for NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB printed and customized with your banking information.
If you are feeling patriotic you can easily express it in with designer checks. For some it is only natural to have an image of the United States flag, a popular American landmark or a picture a great president on their checks. They are on the money, so why not have them on a designer check as well?
Car lovers are also well taken care of when they go looking for check designs. Popular muscle cars, exotic foreign sports cars and even hot rods and dragsters can be found printed on designer checks. The check designers haven’t left out the motorcycle lovers. Popular images are racing bikes and of course the Harley Davidson brand is well represented.
It’s also worth mentioning, in case you’re thinking that having just one check design is a limitation, that they check printing companies offer boxes of checks that are groupings of favorite designs. So you can actually have a selection of styles in one checkbooks, so each check you write will have a different design.
If you’re looking for something stylish without having a specific image, there are many fashionable patterns, shapes and colored check designs that can be applied to personal checks. These would range from the most conservative style which would satisfy a traditional taste, to the check designs based on the latest trends from the fashion mavens of Europe.
The last type of designer checks worth mentioning are probably the most fun. These checks cast YOU in the role of the designer! Have a favorite photo from a vacation or your sports team or whatever. The only limit is your imagination.
That concludes this brief tour of the possibilities for customizing your financial transactions with designer checks. You no longer have a excuse for suffering the burden of those plain-Jane ugly blue checks that your bank over charges you for. Yes, it’s true that all the cool designer checks won’t even cost you any more than the ones you receive from your bank.
