How to remove those pesty permanent price stickers from your product so you can take a good photo and list it on ebay?
Glue releases its hold when heated.
A good source of heat is the common hair dryer. I bought this one at a thrift store for $3.
In the photos, I purchased a book at a thrift store. The price sticker needed to be removed. I put the hair dryer on its highest heat setting and pointed its hot air directly at the price sticker. In less than one minute the sticker was warm to the touch and pulled off easily, not even leaving a glue mark.
It is not always that easy. Sometimes there is residue left behind that needs to be removed by a liquid glue-removal product and paper towel. I simply apply some of the liquid to the paper towel, rub it against the glue residue, and with some elbow grease the residue is removed. Glue removal products are available at hardware and office supply stores and remove all kinds of gunk including glue.
The hair dryer technique works well on hard surfaces, such as this glossy book dust jacket, or a metal die-cast car. It may not work well on porous products, delicate products, or products sensitive to heat. For example, a cardboard box that held a die cast race car had a permanent sticker on the bottom. The heat from the hair dryer turned the box brown and I was unable to remove that sticker. The liquid glue remover would not work either, because the porous box would soak up the liquid. In some cases, such as a coarse-paper book jacket, the liquid causes fade and color bleed. Be careful with its use, and test it first if possible.
In an ideal world, price stickers would be sold only as removeable versions, not permanent.
For my ebay use, the hair dryer technique works 95 percent of the time.
I hope the idea helps you.
