    Sticker removal? I can't stand it, but also don't want to do more damage if the removal goes bad. Looking for feedback. See photo... Thanks

    I've always liked the operator stickers but I can understand someone else not liking them.

    My thought would be heat and see if you can get some of that stickers glue to let loose.

    The paint on Bally aprons is so fragile they are nearly impossible to remove without damage. I've tried Goo Gone soaking, Orange power and more with mixed results.

    Tried that, stickers come right off with every bit of paint they were attached to.

    Don’t use chemicals. Paint will lift. Heat gun always works for me.

    Or hair dryer

    That looks like a plain paper sticker. I'd try heat.

    Heat, otherwise leave it alone or it will end in tears

    I hate those stickers too. Good luck removing it

    It is old and dried up, but I'm worried the paint will come with it. I don't hate the sticker showing some history and this is a player's machine anyway. But next to my other 2 machines, it looks out of place!
