Once again, excellence from MFT!
I've wanted alphabet dies for some time and finally got exactly what I wanted. These stitched dies cut cleanly, on the first pass of a die machine. Most die-cuts fall out, easily, with only a tap necessary to get the other pieces out. I LOVE this die set!!!! Personally, I chose not to cut apart each letter of the metal die to use separately, leaving the entire metal alphabet in a single shape. This method is more convenient and less messy for me as well as insurance that I won't lose any of the letters with consistent use.
