I bought a set of clear alphabets--upper and lower case--and numbers set for this very reason, but had so much trouble getting them straight and to stay on, so I gave them away. I have several on wooden blocks which I prefer. I first make sure the stamp is lined up the same way on each block. Then, even stamping "Blink" is not too hard, as I line up the block with a light pencil line that I can erase later. I have tried the "all at one time" thing, too and it is difficult with long words, especially if the letters are small. In addition to taping around the series. you might want to use a glue dot between each block as well. I am in the process of designing a jig my hubby can build with an adjustable slot for the blocks that can be tightened snuggly for stamping. Am interested in The Bar that StampHappy mentioned, but can't quite figure out what it is all about from the picture. Will look into that, too.
