Actually the key to getting the stamp off is to do the opposite of what you said...Just get a paper towel or cotton balls, put acetone on and in a slow motion just press lightly and wiggle the acetone back and forth on the stamp working your way across it! In order for the acetone to work, you need to give it time to react to the stamp, going fast is only gonna scratch your disc and not get the stamp off and give the "bleed" affect you explained...

So you are referring to the ink on the underside of the disc that Innova has used to write down the weight and type of the disc, right in the middle? Hmmm....never tried to get that off. It will usually just come off from wear and tear. Just spin it on your finger a lot and it will eventually come off.

I may have stumbled onto something. Played a trny this last weekend. Was in the rough looking for a stay shot and found a clear Striker. It WAS clear, now kinda yellow. Called the guy last night. Said he had just bought a new one keep it. Thank you very much Adam!
Anyway, Wanted to see if I could get some of the yellow out. I used Detailers Pride carpet & upholstery cleaner.
Didn't take the yellow out of the striker or the green river scum off the Sidewinder, sure did get rid of almost all of the sharpie. Had to try another disc to see if really did work, Looks like it did. This is the best result I've ever had.

I do it the way you explain mmyersdisc. I should have clarified, I mean if you work slowwww....(think bathing in acetone) it will begin to eat through layers of the plastic (what I've been told) and will affect the durability of the plastic.

The bleeding I speak of has only happened to me once and I fixed my wiping technique from big fast swirls (bad) to slow small wipes (good). I hope this clears things up.

I'm not sure I've had that stuff for a few years. Think I got it in Cali. The 03 wildfires, I was there working, My headliner was getting all black from the soot and ash in the air.
I think it worked really well.
Found it. http://www.autogeek.net/dp310.html $15.99

Is it possible to just dye over ink?

I have some discs and have used acetone and it barely fades it.

you can dye over it, but in the right light you can still see it slightly
