    Removal of monkey sticker from Holga 135TLR

    My new Holga 135TLR has a monkey sticker at the upper right corner of the camera body, when looking at the front of it.

    Is there an easy and safe way to remove this sticker? It "cheapens" the look of the camera.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    As one who is terrified of monkeys, I too wd remove that sticker.
    What about Goo Gone?

    The sticker almost feels like it was applied to a square stamped into the plastic on the camera, that is the same size as the sticker, so I don't know if peeling it off is an option.

    I would prefer something that would not damage the camera body/plastic. I have heard of Goo Gone, but have never tried it.

    Chris - The camera looks MUCH more professional, without that sticker.

    Put a piece of black gaffers tape over it. Looks cool. Hipsters will love it. Dark, daring, mysterious....what's under that tape? Don't know and he won't tell me.....OOoooooo....

    I just found a Holga catalog online (will post new thread) and a picture of one of the other models, has this same monkey sticker on it.

    I just bought a Holga and it didn't come with a monkey sticker. I feel cheated!

    No doubt-question of the week.

    I think Goo-Gone will work well, without you having to monkey with it.
    Test it on an inconspicuous area, like the bottom or inside.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
