    Default Stickers on nes boxes

    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!

    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!

    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.
