After my cleaning my stationary targets with 99% alcohol and letting them dry, I applied my stickers. All was good for a few days, then this happened.

What's the best glue to keep that down, but allow for removal in a few years to re-sticker?

thanks!

Here you go, adhesive transfer tape:

Buy this. It's like $8 a can but it is all you need to stick them. I used it on my Dredd drop stickers 4 years and 1000 plays ago and they look like the day I put them on still.

In my case how would you do the repair? spray some glue on a Q-tip or toothpick?

The transfer tape is easy. You take a piece of the tape and push it on the surface of the target or decal and the adhesive comes off the paper, and then push the target and decal together.

you could try to print those on decals/vinyl paper.
try to find the picture/use photoshop, will be cheaper.

Remove, flatten, spray the back, let dry for 30 seconds, apply carefully and press firmly. If you buy some, practice with something else first. I use that spray for 4 or 5 other things. It is a great product.

Transfer tape is the way to go.

Man that is some sticky and tender stuff. After 4 tries, got a small strip cut and applied. Looks good, only time will tell if it holds. Thanks for the tip!
