Those of you with the snap sets, how do you get a good impression with the letters in the middle?
Since I started this thread I ordered 3 snap sets and I have trouble getting a great impression. I press down on all of the letters and still have trouble. I should double check the surface i stamp on.

I am going to look into lots of the suggestions here.
I am also thinking if I get a cricut - which I eventually will - maybe I don't need another stamp set. hummm more food for thought.

I would have to say that I like the open Chunky Uppers $39.95 from The Angel Company. (TAC) Cause I can use them on Scrapbook pages. Cards, Wall art,

But I also like Scribble-bet from The Angel Company (TAC) too, $19.95

I like them both!

I love A Muse's polka dot alphabets! They come in several different sizes, upper and lower cases. And they just released huge polka dot monograms! They are fabulous!

personally my favorite all time alpha is from CTMH called Precious alphabet.
are they out yet???? that sounds like just what I need!

My all time favorite alpha is SU headline alphabet- but I don't have it.

My second favorite is TAC's (retiring, I believe- so it's 25% off) circle-bet , closely followed by SU's classic alpha

haha- I just realized I answered this thread ages ago. I still love alpha-tiles (which is what I posted then) but I still stand by headline alpha!

I would go with acrylic/clear stamps because it is SOOOOOOOOO much easier to line them up! There are several great ones out there but without a doubt clear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, here is one that has not been mentioned. I love love love the essential Alpha from CTMH. You can cut a great shadow for it of use markers to color the outlined area. And it is not so big that it takes over the cards or scrapbook pages.

Hands down - Letterpress - I've used it a ton - it's a nice clean font. Second place goes to Newsprint - it's great for kids pages and I like the look of it - plus it's an upper/lower alphabet whereas the Letterpress is all upper case.

Okay, Newsprint is my second favorite. I unmounted it so I can place all the letters exactly. I especially like this set to make coaster tiles with. It is the perfect size.
