Question mounting stamps question

Hi, I was wondering if any of you have any special way that you mount your stamps? I think mine are straight ( and some are) but sometimes when I stamp, they seem to be slanted upwards--if that makes sense. Are there any "tricks"? It is mostly when I do the word stamps. Any advice would be welcomed.

I sometimes mount mine crooked, so I use my Stampamajig Stamp Positioner to help me stamp straight.
You can also put the block in the microwave for 5 second increments until the rubber & foam peels off the block and reposition the stamp so it's straight.

You can use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to make sure they are straight and match exactly where you put your sticker. Me, I just eyeball it and I'm getting pretty good at centering them (lots of practice, lol!)

I don't have a stamp-a-ma-jig and was always too lazy to re-mount. So I just use a marker to draw a little arrow on top of the stamp to remind myself that I should tilt it a little in the direction of the arrow whenever I use that stamp.

Thanks ladies--good and helpful answers. I will try to "re-mount" and see if that works, if not I too have a stamp-a-ma-jag that I should use more often. If that doesn't work--I can make my stamp with an arrow too.
Thanks--Just wish SU would send them all mounted already!!!!
