Removing Labels & Stickers

  • How to remove price stickers & labels

If you shop retail or thrift stores you will be all too familiar with price stickers. Removing them can be one of the more annoying parts of your business, but it can be made easier if you have the right supplies.

Normally by simply applying an adhesive remover and waiting 5 to 10 minutes a label will slide right off with a Scotty Peeler. For more stubborn stickers or if you want to make sure you do not tear part of the product with the label you may want to use a heat gun.
