I have and used my Tappits Alphabet Set....I get the job done, but it is time consuming and frustrating at times. I have read all the pointers about using Tappits and have tried them all.

A while back, I saw somewhere a device that cuts the alphabet letters and then somehow the letters are punched out. It looked so much easier than what I am doing with Tappits. Unfortnately, I can no longer find this device.

Have any of you seen anything like this?

The product you are talking about is the Windsor Clikstix I tried to post a link to them on GSA's site, but it wouldn't post.

You can go to www.globalsugarart.com and type in Windsor Clikstix and they will come up. HTH

Clikstix. You can get thems at Global sugar art. Comes in several fonts. MUCH easier to use then Tappits.

Have you seen Edna's youtube tutorial? It is the exact opposite of the package directions and it works EVERY time.

I think the tappits should be renamed "bangits" lol. I broke one of the letters the other day when I was "tapping" it on the counter, sometimes the letters just do not want to come out. It gets frustrating. Think I will have to try these other cutters.

Even though I posted how Edna's way works, you all have convinced me to try the Clikstix. I can't delegate the tappits to anyone else and that will eventually become a problem. So I ordered the script ones last night. Knowing Global, they will probably be here tomorrow! Aren't they great?

I just sold my tappits on ebay this week because for me the Clikstix is so much easier and take much less time.

I also use my Cricut to cut lettering.

Just got my Windsor Clickstix. Any suggestions on use, or will they work with the tappits method. I use Edna's suggestions... shortening, celpad, no powders. Any suggestions?
