Buffalo Checkbook Cover

The Buffalo Checkbook Cover is handmade from American Bison hide in our leather workshop. Slide your checkbook in and write checks in style. This isn’t one of those cheap plastic covers that typically come with a checkbook. These are made from real full grain leather because it’s the strongest. We’ve been making this time-tested, durable leather checkbook cover for decades; and with each batch, we fine-tune our leather tanning recipe. We also hand pick the buffalo leather to give you the best buffalo checkbook cover you’ll ever own.

Leather Checkbook Cover Made in USA

This leather checkbook cover is made in USA. We strive to get 100% USA raised Bison and we tan the leather in USA tanneries. Then we bring the leather to our workshop and handpick, cut and sew the this leather into high quality leather goods that are built to last.

    Wonderful product and so glad it is made in the USA. I heard about your company before Christmas when David Muir was talking about you on his news show. Keep up the good work and I will order from you again.

  2. Anne (verified owner)

    Beautiful craftsmanship! The checkbook cover was very well made and will last a long time. I will order from the Buffalo Co. again.

  3. Thane (verified owner)

    Superb product. I purchased this recently as a graduation gift for a student. I like to give gifts that will last a lifetime. This fits that bill.

  4. Chip (verified owner)

    This is a great checkbook cover! I had wanted a leather one for some time now and I am glad I purchased this one. Nice supple leather. I am thinking about buying a wallet,too.

  5. David Thigpen (verified owner)

    I normally don’t write reviews, however I feel compelled to get the word out about the quality and craftsmanship from this company. I have been looking for a replacement checkbook cover for some time. I’m tired of the cheap plastic or faux leather that is usually found. Even the ones at a local western store are made in China. I most definitely wanted something made in the USA. That is important to me. After reading the reviews on here, I decided to buy the checkbook cover. This checkbook cover does not disappoint! These are individually made, not on some huge assembly line. I am so pleased with this that I will be ordering more items from these fine folks, and highly recommending their business to everyone I know. Don’t hesitate to buy from them – you won’t regret it! Their products are top notch, and their customer service is great as well.

    After several dissatisfied purchases of other leather wallets from different companies that I saw advertised on social media, I decided to try Buffalo billfold company. They had the exact wallet (Hipster) that I was looking for in premium Buffalo leather. I must say that I do not regret my purchase one bit. As the wallet breaks in it gets softer and softer like a old catchers mit. I even purchased a Buffalo leather checkbook cover after the fact. I am proud to support American workers making American products. Do not hesitate to buy from this great mom and pop company

    We have tried upper end checkbook covers and this one beats them all hands down. Superb craftmanship, quality leather. Wife just loves it!

  9. MSgt Bill Stengle (USAF, Ret) (verified owner)

    I own two and cannot be more pleased. The design is uncomplicated, stitching is perfect and it looks and feels great. Real leather products made individually can’t be beat. I’m now ordering a wallet as well. Great job guys!

  10. Vince (verified owner)

    The buffalo checkbook cover is fantastic. Best checkbook cover ever. Soft and excellent craftsmanship. Very nice. I also purchase a buffalo credit card holder. Another great product. American made and small business. The best!

  12. Demetrio Pina (verified owner)

    I Love my new Buffalo checkbook cover! It is just elegant and made with great taste. The leather is soft and thick , just a great feeling to look at it. The craftmanship is amazing. I have never bought a product that feels so unique . Order yours to experience great American quality!

  13. r spriggs (verified owner)

    I don’t know why I didn’t buy one of these sooner! Great company with great products. Highly recommend!

  14. Bud

    Do you make checkbook covers in natural color? Do you engrave initials?

    • Buffalo Billfold Company

      Hi Bud, Thanks for the positive rating! The colors we use for our leather goods are brown, black and russet. Brown is as close to the natural color as we get. In the past, we’ve stamped initials into checkbooks, but we currently don’t. We might in the future, and if we do, you’ll find an option to customize your leather checkbook by add initials to it on the page.

  15. Dan Short (verified owner)

    Purchased the Buffalo Checkbook Cover recently and it is by far the best checkbook cover I have ever owned! The quality workmanship is the best I have seen on a checkbook cover. The leather is beautiful, thick and soft. This will outlast me. It comes with a great photo insert, for pictures of my family and grandchild. It fits comfortably in my pocket. It is the only checkbook cover that I have ever got compliments on. This would make a great present for anyone.

  16. Bryan Barnett (verified owner)

    Nice soft thick (durable) leather will last for a lifetime with proper care Very satified

  17. Keith (verified owner)

    Treat yourself to something really nice. Buy one. Buy two and treat a good friend. Money well spent.

  18. Larry Bertram (verified owner)

    I recently purchased a Buffalo check book cover. The quality is perfection and the leather is top shelf. I would buy from this company again without hesitation .

  19. john weidman (verified owner)

    I bought this to replace an older leather checkbook cover that was worn out. Originally I was concerned that the cover would be too thick but once I received it I found it to be just fine. As far as the quality it’s first rate and very well made. I expect it to last for many years. And the price was very reasonable. Good job and a great product.

  20. Ira Hearen Jr (verified owner)

    I was looking for a full thickness leather checkbook cover. I carried one that a friend made for me for approximately 20 years ago. It was not full thickness, so I know that this one will last twice as long if not longer. The price was very reasonable for the product. Thank you!

  21. Gene Behme (verified owner)

    I have purchased five products from you over the past several years. The first was a checkbook cover back in 2012 while on a trip to South Dakota. I liked the cover so much, I looked you up on the internet and have continued ordering products ever since. They are beautiful, durable products, and I love to give them as gifts as well as use them myself. I still use the original checkbook cover and it continues to look great. I don’t plan to ever get rid of it. I guess I will have to plan who I will leave it to when I finally give up the ghost.

  22. Andy (verified owner)

    Great product. Would recommend to a friend.

  23. Noah

    I’ve had this handmade checkbook cover for over 15 years and it’s holding up really well. Unfortunately I seem to have misplaced it a week ago and can’t seem to find it! I may end up having to get another one! This one would have kept going forever.

  24. Dan Knouff (verified owner)

    great workmanship , love it , took it to my local bank to show them and gave them the address.
    Thank you so much

  25. H D Locke (verified owner)

    I just purchased my third Buffalo Billfold Checkbook Cover. It is not that the others have worn beyond use. They are still in perfect condition. These things wear forever. I just keep opening bank accounts to convince myself I have more money than I really have. In any case, these are the best checkbook covers any amount of money can buy. They look good, they feel good and they are forever durable. Get one.

  26. Art Webster

    I got tired of checkbook covers that came apart after even light use. The Bison leather is beautiful! Strong! And the workmanship is wonderful. I love the Buffalo Billfold company’s commitment to making something last!

  27. Lee (verified owner)

    Absolutely love my checkbook. It’s everything I wanted. I love the feel and smell. The craftsmanship is outstanding. The quality of every item I’ve purchased is incredible. I shop no where else. I’ll definitely be buying additional items for Christmas gifts

  28. Kim Warner

    I use the checkbook cover as a wallet. This may be the best product I’ve ever bought. After 3 yrs I still smile every time I put it in my Pocket.

  29. Andy (verified owner)

    Exactly what I was looking for. I ordered another prodouct of Etsy and was not satisfied. I ordered this checkbook cover and it is perfect. It is the correct size. The leather is very high quality and durable. Very pleased.

  30. Denise D (verified owner)

    I have had this checkbook cover for several years and I love the pleasure of handling this beautiful leather cover. I’m buying another as a gift for an eighteen year old, to add importance to their banking and saving efforts. I also would like if there were different color options for multiple accounts, black, reddish or lighter brown, or the rattlesnake inset would be great!

  31. Don English (verified owner)

    If you read Doug’s review above, he is dead on. It is a super cover, but I agree with him that a companion piece in BLACK would be nice for those of us who have more than one cover.

  32. Doug Stange (verified owner)

    I once was satisfied with the cheesy plastic check book covers
    that many check printers supply. Then I discovered the
    Buffalo Checkbook Cover. It’s classy, handsome, and attracts
    attention as a work of art. I have also ordered it for others
    and was complemented on my good taste in gifts. One suggestion: offer a companion piece in buffalo leather dyed
    black for folks who have more than one checking account or
    confused their own with that of their spouse.
