    I get mine (mickey designs) through Costco. Paid $15.23 for 400, which will last me many many years. Not sure it's the cheapest though!

    Co worker shared with me Walmart.com. Lots to choose from. Good shipping options. Delivered to me. Just finished the set with my last check from my bank yesterday.

    My Mickey Mouse checks are free from my bank.
    If you have a $5,000 combined balance, checks, cashiers checks, travelers checks, safety deposit boxes, notary service, electronic bill pay are all free. They'll even make free photocopies for you.

    I don't write many checks anymore, but there are some things you have to write a check for. My daughter learned this in April when she bought a car. She has no checks, figured she could just use her Debit card for the down payment. Nope. Cash or check only accepted. But I have to admit I did find it odd that they would take a personal check for that much money, when the check could be bad, but they would know instantly if there were sufficient funds with an electronic transfer.

    Last time I reordered, which was about a year ago, I purchased online from Currents. Price seemed good and I also bought nice address labels at the same time. It was my first time not ordering thru my bank. I don't write many checks anymore, so it took me forever to need more

    Go to costco.com, under services there is a business and personal check tab. I think you have to be logged in to access them, it takes you to a Harland Clarke site to order.

    Walmart. Although I use so few these days (pay everything online), I only have them printed about every 5 years, if that!

    I have used Checks Unlimited for cute checks. I rarely write checks so one box lasts a really long time, like 5 years or more. LOL.

    I've gotten our last couple orders from Wal-Mart. I like that the good deal pricing isn't just for your first order like Checks Unlimited or Current.
