Goo Gone is a good product to try. Removes just about any kind of sticker/tape residue.

I use a hair dryer to heat up the sticker so it pulls off easily. Then use lighter fluid to remove any residue. Works perfect every time and you can't even tell there was a sticker on it.

Yes, Goo Gone is the product to use. As an additional note, I will add that when a price sticker peels off incompletely, leaving a thin paper film, it is a good idea to soak that film with Goo Gone. After a minute or two, the paper film can be scratched off easily.

I usually just leave the price stickers on all my card just to be on the safe side... ;)

Wow, that's pretty resourceful. Lighter fluid doesn't do any damage? I'll have to give that a try
