    Hello everyone!

    I got a iPad mini from a company I do business with. They put a corporate sticker on the back of the mini and I want to remove it.

    I tried using the fingernail method, but its really stuck on there. Any known safe and nonabrasive procedures to remove it? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance guys!

    Try steaming it... idk, it works for some things. It should be okay on the back of an iPad mini, just don't let it get too hot.

    I would consider just leaving it and getting a cover for the back. It may be that I'm more clumsy than average, but I've dropped the mini or bumped it hard into tables and such a few times, and I was very glad to have my protective shock absorbent cover.

    There Is 'One More Thing'...!

    You might want to try some 'Goo Gone'...

    You could try sticking a tape on it and peel it off. This works well for screen protector. Otherwise, scrubbing it off with wet towel could work.

    Goo Gone works well on sticker residue, but not on the decal itself.
    Spray/soak the sticker with WD40 for a few minutes.
    It should slide and lift right off.

    if the WD-40 doesn't work, and it should, you can try using a little of the lighter fuel that you put in Zippo lighters..one or the other and a bit of patience should do the job

    Heat usually works along with patience. Get a hair dryer and and heat it up gently while picking at it.

    like a company logo or an asset tag with a barcode?

    If it's an asset tag leave it on there. It's there for a reason.
