Nightmare Before Christmas Checks

NMBC Checks

Checks in the Mail has just begun offering these adorable NMBC-themed checks. It looks like they offer a matching leather cover, too.

I like themed checks; it makes paying the bills slightly less onerous. If you’re not into Jack Skellington, several online vendors also offer generic Halloween or Elvira checks. (This Pirate Treasure set is cute, too.)

Beware: Many check printers offer special seasonal designs around Halloween and then promptly discontinue them, so if you find a design you like it’s a good idea to stock up. I used to use a “Classic Movie Monsters” theme, and was heartbroken when it was no longer available.

To avoid disappointment, I now use my own design. As I mentioned previously, I had custom checks made from a graveyard photograph that I took a couple of years ago. They make me happy every time I get out my checkbook. If you’ve got a favorite spooky photograph or drawing, this would be a fun way to showcase it.
