Removing stickers from tint

Hi guys,

I had my tints done today, and the shop left a little advertisement sticker on one window... how can I remove it without damaging the tint?

Can I just peel it off as I would do with normal glass?

Thanks.

More than likely that sticker is required by your state to verify that the tint is legal. So i guess what im saying is asking them to remove it probably wont work, but removing it yourself is possible.

Yes, there's one of those from 3M on each window...

But then on the drivers window there is an additional one that says "Glassgarant... xyz, etc, etc."

I would appreciate more tips, rather than telling me to go back... like what if I stick something on myself? How can I remove it?

Thanks....

The reason I recommend going back is if the tint becomes damaged it's their fault, if you damage it yourself then you might be SOL.

Well, I think it was some tint-safe sticker... I pulled it right off in the evening, it didn't even leave any residue. So all is OK now
