the check is in the mail

Would it surprise you to know that I don’t like plain checks? Bah! So boring! I usually order my checks from Rosencrantz & Gildenstern. I have also ordered some Shag checks. Lately, though, I have been ordering checks from those nasty mass-market check printers that always advertise in the coupon section in the Sunday newspaper (gotta see the latest plush footies or polyester culottes by Blair, after all). Last time I got classic Barbie, and right now we have Curious George. Imagine my excitement, though, when I saw these from Checks in the Mail:
Well, helloooooo, kitty! The only problem is Peter & I have only one checking account, and while I generally hoard the checkbook, sometimes he needs to use it. Going to hardware stores or lumberyards and being forced to write Barbie checks is rather distressing for him. If I order Hello Kitty checks, I think it will push him over the edge (but I might do it anyway. Heh heh).

    Those are too funny! Maybe you can compromise with him and after Hello Kitty order the Dogs Playing Poker or Spiderman.

    a few weeks ago at work, one of my coworkers announced she saw hello kitty checks in a circular. i looked them up and the tale was true! i’m ordering them next week, after i get paid- i need new checks anyway- i moved three months ago and i’m still using checks with my old address!

    That’s one way to tell if a man is in it for life — make him write out Hello Kitty checks! haha Go for it! It’ll be the ultimate test of true love. 🙂

    Another solution — your own account! Think of the damage you could do….

    Actually, I don’t know how I survived without Shag checks. Those are awesome! If I hadn’t just ordered my groovy whimsical checks from CITM, I’d be all over those. Next time.

    Just tell him it could be worse. They do have Strawberry Shortcake checks, after all.

    two sets of checks in my house.
    Peanuts for me. . . . and scooby doo for the boy!

    I have Poker Playing Dogs for my personal checks. We just bought new checks for our joint account and I went with Safety Blue. My husband thought that even National Parks was too foo foo. Of course, I write all the checks, so why should he even have a say?

    thanks for sharing those links! i do think the hello kitty cheques are in order–who doesn’t want to have fun while paying bills?

    Mine are a pastel tropical theme. Ahh…The husband complained a little about it but I told him it could be worse…much worse, but I never thought of using Barbie checks as a bargaining tool.

  14. maryse says:

    haha i just had a visual of my husband writing out a barbie check!

  15. abczora says:

    just asked my husband is we could get some. no answer yet…
    i’ve got to make the gougeres — they look and sound delicious!

  16. Jenny says:

    Oh wow! THANK YOU THANK YOU for posting where you saw these checks! I’m going to get them ASAP! Hahaha, I think Hello Kitty might be less harsh than the Barbie ones might have been? Hehehe :).

  17. Starlight says:
