    You just have to be careful with it. If the old labels are to have no further use, simply remove them, and use Goo Gone to remove the left over adhesive residue. Then take some soapy water and clean off the Goo Gone. Make sure the surfaces are dry prior to reprolabels application. :) 

    It may be a little different, but I discussed this process in this thread as well: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...-plastic-bubble-card.html?highlight=adventure

    Ah, talk about good fortune and fate. I was trying to find info on this on the internet and had no luck (for a custom package) and just when I gave up you come along and post that link :)  Gracias!
