I just got back from the thrift shop with 5 records, Prince - Sign Of The Times, Prince - 1999, Stanley Clarke - Stanley Clarke, Stanley Clarke - School Days and Johnny Cash - Mean As Hell all of these records are in great shape with very clean vinyl and jackets for $3 each.
Here is the problem that I have, I hope someone can help me with this. When you peel the price tag off of the jacket it leaves a stick residue, is there any way to get this off of the jacket or is there a way to get the tag off without damaging the jacket?
There's a product called "Goo Gone," which I've bought at Bed, Bath, & Beyond, that I've used for this purpose and works well. I think it's similar to "Goof Off," which works, but is much stronger and really smells awful. I'd try the "Goo Gone" or a similar product, specifically designed as a label remover.
I second nose oil. _Oil_. This is the socially approved name for it, used by photographers back when they were developing prints from film negatives. A swipe of it could fix up a tiny scratch on a negative, well enough so it could be used (in an enlarger) to make a decent print,
Nose oil is indeed a good label glue remover. An oil-based solvent of some kind is what's generally required and NO is free. If you have a dry nose, though, and your sense of smell is offended by WD40, lighter fluid or Varsol, you can get odorless solvent at an artist's supply store.
Jyprez, maybe I didn't make it clear in my original post. These are the stickers / price tags that the thrift shop puts on the records, not stickers that originally came on the record jacket. The thrift shop sticker is extremely sticky and is about 1.5 inch x 2 inch and they are put on the front cover are very hard to peel off.
