Have you ever gotten a blank, signed check on payday? I haven't, but it would be nice to write your own check, wouldn't it? On my paychecks, and probably on yours, the amount is already filled in. But we still look forward to each payday. That's because we count on our paycheck to pay our debts, or to pay for a house, a car, food, clothes, and many other things. For many of us, it seems there's "too much month at the end of the money," but sometimes we might have some money left over to put away for the future.
We work all week, or even all month, to get our paycheck. Then we are paid what we have earned, or according to the contract we have negotiated. But wouldn't it be nice to get a big check and not even have to work for it? It's possible! But, it's also possible to get a paycheck that we wouldn't want to have.
A check that we wouldn't want? Yes, there are wages that I think none of us would like to earn if we had a choice—"the wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23). Have you ever thought about the end result of your sin? God says that for sinning, we earn wages, and the payment of those wages is not in money, but death. No one is exempt from these wages, "for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). Is death then the end? No, it is not. God's Word says, "It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). For those who are not saved, this will be the payday of God's holy wrath. The payment will be everlasting punishment in hell, "the fire that never shall be quenched" (Mark 9:43).
How can we avoid the wages of death and judgment? We might think that since our sins have earned us death, our good deeds can earn us eternal life. They can't. Because of our fallen, sinful nature, even "all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags" in God's eyes (Isaiah 64:6). No matter how hard we work, or how hard we try, we cannot do anything to earn God's forgiveness for even one sin.
Remember the check I mentioned before that we don't have to work for? God has written such a check. It can pay for your salvation. It is not a blank check, though. It is already made out for a priceless amount—the price of your soul. But don't worry about this check bouncing, because it is paid out of the endless riches of God's love and grace. This check is written with the blood of Christ, and signed by the Heavenly Father. It is dated for today, because "now is the day of salvation" (2 Corinthians 6:2).
All that you must do is put your name on God's check. How do you do that? You need to admit that you are a sinner, and that your sin has produced a debt that you cannot pay. You need to confess your sins to God, and believe that Jesus Christ paid for your sins by dying on the cross and rising again.
When you trust Him as your personal Saviour you can put your name in this verse: "For God so loved _______, that He gave His only begotten Son, that _______ believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).
When you come to Jesus as a sinner, and by faith put your name on God's check of eternal salvation, you can be assured that you are His, and that you will miss the payday of judgment that awaits all those who have not trusted Christ.
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23).
We can add your custom imprint to individual titles of Gospel Tracts, as well as our Calendar Cards. Please note that Tract Assortments, Poems, Mini Tracts, booklets, and some Believers Tracts cannot be imprinted.
How Much Does Tract Imprinting Cost? The imprinting charge is $4 per pack for tracts. There are no setup fees or minimum or maximum quantity limits, so when you order an imprinted item, feel free to order as few or as many copies as you want.
How Much Does Calendar Card Imprinting Cost? To order imprinted calendar cards, locate the special Personalized item in the Calendar Cards category. The imprinting charges are already built into this item; there are no other extra charges or fees.
How Long Will It Take to Get My Imprinted Items? Tract imprints of about 3,000 copies or less (per title) only require 2-3 business days for printing. Tract imprints of 3,000 or more copies (per title) usually require 2-3 weeks for printing. Imprinted calendar cards are usually shipped in about 1 week.
Where Does My Imprint Go? Every tract has a reserved space on the back (approximately 1" tall x 3" wide) for imprinting (see picture at right). The calendar card has a reserved space on the calendar side (beside the year). Your imprint will go in this space.
How Much Text Can My Imprint Include? There is room for up to 5 lines of text on Gospel Tracts (4 lines on calendar cards), with approximately 40 characters per line. Adding more text would require the text to be so small that we don't recommend it.
Can I Add A Logo or Image? Yes, you can upload your own custom logo or image. Remember that adding an image to your imprint reduces the amount of room available for text, and you should limit your text accordingly.

If you are ordering multiple tracts with the same imprint, you can enter all of the details with the first tract, and then enter "same" on Line 1 for the others. Likewise, if you have ordered imprinted tracts in the past and want to use the same information, simply enter "same as before."
