You only need a small mirror on center of the flat product. When the mirror is centered in the viewfinder, and you see the lens in the center of the mirror, then you are perpendicular to the mirror.

I think small mirrors are a great tool,  I use one in portraiture work when using a single light and a reflector.  I hang the mirror against the surface of the reflector board.  When in subject position, if you can look into the mirror and see the studio strobe, the reflector is angled correctly.  Angle of incidence equals angle of reflection.
