I hate the stickers over the description of the film. Plus who is in it.

Not to mention, the way Best Buy is set up now, every Blu Ray should have a price marker underneath it on the shelf. There is really no need for these stickers other than to piss us off lol.

I've stopped trying to get the Best Buy white ones off all together now. They seem to be the worst ones.
It's true, the worst!

So I found something equally as annoying last week on some used blu's I bought at one of our local pawn shops. For some reason, it wasn't enough to just put a price sticker on the outside of the blu-ray case; they had to go and put price stickers on the paper artwork part of each cover underneath the clear sleeve.

Talk about a pain trying to peel them off! I had to slip each cover out of their case and then slowly pick away at them (yes, some actually had 2 different stickers on top of each other - different sizes too) ever so gently so as not rip or tear the paper!

I hated when Gamestop did that exact same thing to new (open/gutted) and used video games. They seem to have stopped doing that after the PS4 came out so hopefully it doesn't come back.

Just thought I'd share a technique I recently discovered - Elmer's rubber cement. I know it sounds weird but if you have sticker residue on a slip or steelbook, spread a light layer of rubber cement on there, let it sit for maybe 10-15 seconds, and then just rub it off with your thumb. I've used it before but today it passed the ultimate test: I used it on one of those B&N price stickers today; took a solid 5-10 minutes to carefully peel the sticker off without ripping the slip but even after that there was a ridiculous amount of goop. A little bit of rubber cement and the sticker came off without a problem. Anyway, just thought I'd share

I think Fox takes the crown for the worst studio in terms of slipcovers and packaging, their labels are always pain to remove, my birdman slip is ruined when i remove the label with cleaning fluid ...the reds seem faded a bit

Universal/Disney labels are the easiest to remove in my opinion.

Why they cant just shrink wrap the slip too and put the damn labels outside the shrink wrap? I still don't get it after these years.

When it comes to slips like Birdman, Planet of the Apes reboots, etc, I don't even bother to try to take the stickers off & I get the movies from Target since they don't add stickers like Best Buy. If the "UV code" stickers are too hard to take off I just leave them.

I've been using Goo Gone on the most pesky stickers... Which almost always come from Best Buy for me

I purchased WiB2 today. It comes with a nasty UV sticker on the slip. It's tough, but if you maneuver it slowly it will come off...but it will leave adhesive on the slip.

I put on two drops of Goo Gone, rubbed it for a minute until the adhesive dissolved, and I was left with a perfect slip:




Looks/Feels fine to me.

How do you remove a sticker off a soft cover case?
