You guys slap a sticker on somebody's racquet without a second thought, but some of your clients might view it as anything from a mild annoyance all the way to a justified cause to completely freak out.
Back in the days when I was taking my racquets to a shop, they used to put stickers on them every time. I always removed them right away, but it was a PITA anyway, as they were difficult to peel off cleanly and there was always some sticky residue left that could damage the paint over time.

So how about this: Instead of placing the sticker on the racquet, just give the customer the sticker separately, so that they can do whatever they want with it.
They can stick it on the racquet, they can keep it at home, or they can just throw it away.
It should be up to the customer.
After all, it's their racquet.
Right on the money.
