I'm having a small issue in that the back pack stickers don't stay on where they bend at the ends. Anyone have any simple ideas how to get these to stay down? I'm thinking superglue but may be messy

I've heard sometimes people use clear nail polish to keep stickers down. Never done it myself though. Not sure if it would work for here, but it might be worth looking into.

I think overall the quality is pretty lacking. My tower is already pulling apart from the cardboard.

I thought about applying the stickers and then putting a small rubber-band on each one(like the ones for braces) to help hold the sticker in place for a few days. Hopefully the glue from the sticker sets by then and I can take of the rubber-bands for good. I haven't tried it yet but it was a thought I had because I am having the same issue.

Noticed last night mine were starting the peel off the edges as well. Put the rubber bands on the backpacks hopefully the rubberband idea will work.

Here's what I did:

1) I used a tweezers to apply the stickers, carefully matching the center line with the middle of the backpacks.

2) I used the back end of the tweezers to press the stickers down around the curves.

3) I applied a few coats of Mod Podge Hard Coat to the stickers, paying close attention to the edge of the stickers (almost glopping it on there).

4) I let it dry and cure.

I'm pretty confident that my stickers will stay on. Time will tell, I guess. I could use a spray sealant if I'm really worried.
