I got use this cheap laser level cube thing I got from Home Depot. It makes a vertical line that I make sure lines up perfectly square with the face.

 

The hard part about using any sort of level (laser or traditional) is that the putter face has a bit of loft, so it's hard to determine when the putter head is really "level". I try to make sure the grip is square to the leading edge of the putter.

Place the face against something vertical, like a doorframe, and eyeball it; then take your normal grip, lightly.  If it looks square AND feels square, odds are that it's square and will serve you well.

Call me old school.  I install the grip (using vise and shaft clamp) as perpendicular as I can. Than immediately after taking it out of the vise I grip the club and set it down as if putting.  If it lines up good to my eye I let it dry and go play it later.  Otherwise I twist it into place before it sets up (typically about a minute).

One way is to match the existing alignment of the putter prior to putting on a new grip.  
If you putted with an established putter alignment, no need to alter the putter alignment after installing a new grip.

 

I mark the center line of the old existing grip then match the new grip to the previous alignment.
