It's about time someone (and so glad it was Tim Holtz) finally came out with a perfect size alpha script!! They are sized: (uppercase are 1" and lowercase are 1/2"; with in between sizes for all others). Perfect for scrapbook titles, cardmaking & tags. They are high quality and cut well. A bit of advise though: They are small and I highly recommend that you divide up the alphabet into each upper & lower case letters; the numbers; the accent marks. I placed mine in little 2x3 zip bags. Otherwise, you will be searching for a long time through 69 dies! ****Some of the letters are almost identical so be careful - for example, the 'n' & 'u' can be easily confused. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these dies!!

Great upper case and lower case cursive dies that clearly cuts cardstock and is a wonderful change for titles, headings and for cards, however my set came without the uppercase "V." The letters are loose in the plastic envelope and can fall out too easily, need a better packing system.
When all these little pieces tumbled out of the plastic envelope I thought I was going to go crazy trying to figure out which was which. Remember, they are stamped backwards. My solution was to sort them out ONE time only and then stick them to an adhesive backed magnet sheet inside my cabinet door. I can see right away where to return any letters I use. Sanity saver!
Very disappointed how this product was packages! Expected much better
for a Tim Holtz and Sizzix product. I read another review where a piece was missing, I wouldn't know if any are missing since I haven't counted or laid them all out, I shouldn't have to. I have purchased less expensive dies and they are packaged on magnetic backing or even glued to package, these are just dumped into a baggie!!! Truly cheap for something so pricey! Give it 3 stars only because I did use them after sorting through them and checking the insert (thankfully they did include it) the letters did come out ok! Maybe include in description of all letters how they are packaged. I know I will hesitate purchasing any additional fonts
Love the font and size of this alphabet! It helps to use a sharpie to label the backs of the lower case letters for easy identification. I store mine on a magnetic sheet in the Art Bin for easy accessibility. Recommend using Scrapbook.com Double sided Adhesive roll for ease in adding to your album pages.
While I don't yet own this font set, I will be when it comes back into stock. I have been piecing together his word dies to create lyrics, so this will be very helpful when I continue the project! Mahalo Tim Holtz.

These make really cute letters/numbers, but some of the lower case alpha are a bit tricky to decipher. The packaging consists of an envelope with all the dies loose, so you get to determine what’s what. After getting that done (and I think I have the “u” and the “n” sorted correctly), the letters really “make” a scrapbook page.
I put these SIZZIX on magnetic sheets. The UpperCase letters were easy. But the LowerCase letters are almost impossible to figure out. I will have to cut them all out to figure out what is what. I'm sure the PERIOD and COMMA I can figue out, because I don't see a thinlit for just that. Other than that, I like this set. Thanks.
