I have a habit of applying stickers as some sets loose their appeal without them; I guess only time will tell if this happens to more of my sets. But again, be aware of the prevailing practices in your area. What can you do with these nifty things and how do they work? Personally, I haven't had many issues with stickers, but the one that came to mind for me was 79102 Shredder's Dragon Bike from just last year. With hindsight I should have called customer services, but forgot to do this. Most disturbing for me is the the comment above about the Maersk ship -- I'm gonna be one unhappy camper if the stickers on any of my Maersk ships start to fall apart. This makes it easier to charge for design time because you can see just how long it took to vectorize that low resolution customer-supplied logo. No matter how well you know your equipment, no matter how good your designs are, if you fail in pricing signs right, you fail; period.
They stick best to smooth surfaces. The advantage of the sheets and kits is variety. They may not stick well to highly textured surfaces. For some reason the ones on 8272 Snowmobile have shown no signs or wear, while the 8291 Dirt Bike I have right next to it is peeling. The stickers are peeling on one side of the ship only, but there appears to be no hope of saving them. Hmmm, I've not been applying stickers to a lot of my sets, with the exceptions being my Galaxy Squad and new Ultra Agents sets, so I'm not sure how those will turn out.
Some of the flag stickers had peeled off the sticker sheet completely even and some had attached to the instructions or the bags. Leave the transfer tape on the decal while it dries in place. Unless you get it perfect first go it doesnt look right, and then there are air bubbles etc which is another one. I would rather have printed bricks any day.

A vinyl banner is an economic and effective way to spread your message. Do we know the reasoning for stickers? Self adhesive vinyl cut in the shape of patterns or words adhered to indoor walls. Some sign shops sell car wraps without lamination. This is above and beyond the tendency of certain vintage stickers to crack or dry out, which may also have local environmental causes. Our products are delivered faster and at a lower price than any of our competitors.
Besides I don't think any of us expect Lego to test or certify stickers for 10-20 year lifespans. My Speed Racer Mach Five and Racer X cars looks terrible but the other Speed Racer cars still look okay. It is normal for there to be some bubbling in the decal. More successful customers means more repeat business. I am no expert on what exactly changed, but whatever it was has caused them to peel and crack over time.
I love when you get huge sets and no stickers - like the fire temple. Plus, if a kid wants to have a plain brick again, they can simply peel the sticker off. Clear seem to hold up better; but even then I worry. Unpeel the backing as you go. Some shops include the design fee in the installed price of the wrap. Wall words, personal decals, etched glass, and custom apparel are just a few of the exciting things you can create with a sheet of vinyl and a craft cutter.
The removable adhesive allows you to leave the graphic in place, even on painted walls, and remove it up to two years later without damaging the paint. My Viking sets are just on a display and were not played with much, still most of the stickers are either coming off or even cracking up! The only old sets of mine that still have stickers are the Exploriens from '99? It happened to my which I got in 2005? Usually in a home this is not an issue. Try finding the one that is right for you by choosing the price range, brand, or specifications that meet your needs. Peel the transfer tape off. As I've been dismantling my old Technic models I've been surprised to see that the stickers on the 1980s and 1990s models are all in good shape, even those printed on white. I have been scanning all of my stickers for the last 4 or so years.
I do have a few sets with stickers that have that problem, but it seems like they've gotten better recently the white stickers, I mean. The presence of the release liner means you can use these in your craft cutter without the use of the carrier sheet if you wish. We offer weld hemming and grommets at no additional cost!
