Default How do I mount my double alphabet?

I just got my Brushstroke double alphabet stamps - I made my Stampin Start, so I got those and Everyday Flexible Phrases. I"ve mounted the EFP once before for a customer, but I'm wondering how best to mount the alpha stamps.

My other SU alpha set (Classic) is mounted in the middle of the blocks. But I've seen that people mount the alpha stamp in the lower left corner of the block. Which do you do and do think that works well??

Thanks SO much!

Susan

I prefer to mount my stamps in the center of the block. I find that mounting them in a corner or at the bottom of the block makes it much easier to "rock" the block and create a shadow or ink mark that I didn't intend. I have not had too much difficulty lining up my image mounting them this way.......

It's really personal preference. I cannot stand my letters or any stamp mounted on the edge, I painstakingly mount mine in the middle. One on the end and one on the bottom of the wood, but both mounted in the middle of their respective side of the block.
