View Full Version : Stickers on nes boxes

02-25-2003, 04:10 PM
I looked through the forum but couldn't find any info on this.

So what's the best way to remove the stickers? I've had so-so luck using a knife and *carefully* scraping away the sticker. Some of them are so old though it almost seems like they've fused with the box! LOL

Any help would be appreciated :)

I have used goo gone before, but you have to be careful since it can stain the box.

Use a blow dryer over the stickers on the box. After awhile they'll peel right off with little to no gunk left over.

A note about using Goo Gone, what I do is get a paper towel a little wet with Goo Gone rather than applying it straight to the box. It might take a little longer, but it's less likely to stain the box that way.

This method will also take grease pencil off a label without messing the label up.

Heh, I just do it the old fashioned way, ii SLOWLY peel it off, hoping that nothing will go wrong! :-D

if the gloss on the box hasn't been broken, you can use ronosol lighter fluid, and it should take that puppie right off, works well on permenant marker too.
