Sailing Checks?

A thousand years ago I ordered a box of checks from a company called Image. The series was "on the water" and it 4 or 5 designs featuring boats. 4 sailboats and a trawler I think it was. Really liked them. I'm down to two left! Image checks is still around but they don't have that series and they've replaced it with "water's edge" which looks a little too Thomas Kincade for my tastes. Anyone have a source for some sailing checks?

Anyone still use checks?
haha.

Thanks!

My granddad tells stories about checks, but I've never seen one.

Carousel Checks lets you make checks from a picture of your own boat. I did that and they came out great. Use a good picture of your own boat!

Nobody would take my check if it had a picture of a yellow 1973 MacGregor on it. I should use a picture of YOUR boat.

Carousel had a few choices for sailing checks. Good enough. Coupon code for 25% off and it's done. Thanks for the suggestion. I was hesitant to just google "websites that sell checks" and pick one to give my personal and banking information.

Straying a bit I know but one of our Irish banks, DTATH, lets you put a picture on their credit card.
Safe sailing

That is pretty common for credit cards here in the US. I have a picture of my boat on my credit card. I joke that my boat has its own credit card and it just sends me the bill. Sometimes I don't think it is a joke.
