Decals that won't stick....A little help.


I recently acquired a mint in open box Darkseid Destroyer, complete with all inserts and unapplied decals. The problem is the decals have some how dried out. They are perfect on the sheet, but I don't know what I could put on the decals to make them stick without risking them falling off or screwing them up. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I have had luck using high strength spray adhesive. Remove the stickers and place them art side down on an old piece of cardboard. Hit them with a light coat of adhesive from about 2ft away to ensure the stickers don't blow away due to the power of the spray. Also make sure you have a mist type nozzle and not a stream type nozzle. You will want to do them in batches to make sure you have time to place each one.

I use rubber cement. It won't harm the plastic or the paper sticker, and peels right off.
