All,

When peeling of the white paper backing from several of my reproduction plastics it is removing portions of the graphic. See attachment. I got this set from Pinball Decals. I'm assuming this back piece of paper is meant to come off, correct? Anybody else had this issue? si Is there a trick to removing this backing paper? Cheers, Craig

I had that happen on a set i bought only on a few plastics of the set and real small spot. The reason for peeling was how long the paper had been left on . The set i bought from a vendor was a few years old. Heating the tape with a hair dryer will allow tape to come off easier but it may not stop peeling .I was very lucky i contacted cpr hoping to get replacements for the bad ones and they sent me a whole new set ,now that's some awesome customer service

Also had this happen to mine and particularly worse on the slingshot plastics around the light blue color like yours. Mine was not as bad as what you have though. As soon as I saw it pulling the artwork I let the backing go and then pulled from a different direction very slowly and flat against the plastic and it seemed to come off better that way. I'm pretty sure that it's supposed to be removed.
