Default Removing Paper from Ticket Glued(I mean taped) in Scrapbook

I know on the other side members have had success soaking old cards, T206's, and removing the paper from the back.

This here is from 1967, so the glue might be a little better.

Has anyone tried removing the scrapbook paper off the back of a Ticket? and a more modern one at that.

Also, while most people soak, would heating work? Say using a blow-dryer getting the glue hot enough where it become liquidy? Or not a chance?

Your chances of getting that off without professional help are VERY small. You will probably ruin the ticket if you try, most glue after WW2 is not water soluble and by the late 1960's you are pretty much screwed. Besides that, it actually looks like two strips of tape to me which is even worse.

Paul,

Yes a hairdryer could work if it is tape as Rhys suggests. I have done it multiple times with third party opionaters stickers. Using a pair of tweezers with a pointed tip, medical style with a slightly rounded tip or Clauss with a more needle point like a #3C, you can remove tape. Heat it to soften and use the tweezers to GENTLY pull up. If there is resistance the adhesive is not soft enough, but if it is soft you will be able to pull it up. It will not remove all of the adhesive, which has most likely been absorbed somewhat into the porous paper, but you will be able to see the back. This method has also worked well on SI Covers with certain adhesives, mainly 1970's-1980's.

Would I do it on that ticket. Probably if I determined it was tape. If it was glue I would see what excess paper can be removed without damaging the ticket.

Thanks for the replies, I will give it a shot over the weekend.

Good call on the tape Rhys, that's what it appears to be.

I know it may not go perfectly, but as long as the front doesn't get damaged that's the main thing, I don't mind it showing some tape, or even very minimal paper loss as long as I can get that scrapbook paper removed or most of it.

Thanks Mike I'll post how it turns out, Good, Bad or Ugly.

Good eye Rhys!

I run into this problem all the time , DO NOT STEAM OR SOAK IN WATER
they will curl up like a banana and be ruined , what I do is lightly scrape away at the top surface of the scrapbook paper at an angle with a razor blade or very sharp thin bladed knife , a lot of the time little chunks paper will just peel off , do not dig in to the paper , I have done this numerous times with excellent results , with hardly any visible scrapbook paper left, and only minimal scuffing of the ticket and marginal if any paper loss.
practice on an unimportant ticket first if you have one , I have it down to a science with a 9 out of 10 success rate

Actually, you can soak items if you do it properly. First and foremost you need DISTILLED water, not tap water. It can be purchased by the gallon at Rite Aid, CVS, Walgreens and probably Target for $2.00 or so. After soaking let it drip dry a bit (less than a minute) then place in between two sheets of blotter paper. You can probably find it at an art supply store. It is also used by photographers who still use darkrooms like yours truly. It is a way to carry photos that have not completely dried when you need to take them with you. In a pinch you can also use good absorbent paper towels. To prevent curling you need to place the item between the blotter paper or paper towels and then two pieces of cardstock. Not cardboard, but the cardstock that is on the back of a pad of paper. You then place this between two heavy flat items. It will dry out and not curl. The cardstock will also help absorb the moisture. You can check the item and replace the blotter paper/paper towels during drying. Rather than two heavy items I use a book press. Think Uncle Fester in the Addams Family.
