When you go to apply it, since they about a year old now, you have to be careful and go slow peeling the waxy side off. It wants to stay stuck to it on the outer edges of the letters. I used a set of tweezers to keep it from peeling. And when you are about to remove the cover paper, your best bet is also to go slow, but peel the paper back and fold it over onto, and peel it that way. I'll have to make a video or take a pic of how/what I mean about it. But, they still are good. lots of stick life left in em.
