Tips for removing stickers from visors?

So while I'm saving up for my first real round of mods I'm trying to keep myself occupied doing minor (read: free) maintenance and cleaning up minor fit and finish projects.

I have a 2013 premium GT and I love the interior. But the stickers on the visors just detract from the whole and I'd like to remove them. I've done this on other cars I've owned and it was a pretty simple affair - they just peeled right off. The stickers on these visors though seem to be on there quite firmly. I don't want to damage the visors removing the stickers, so I was wondering - does anyone have any tips for getting these things off?

Thanks in advance!

Blower dryer to heat it up good, while continuing adding heat, slowly peal it off and swab with rubbing alcohol to remove any excess adhesive.

I know you are looking for free, but there are cheap "GT" stickers that are on ebay that are designed to cover the visor stickers. I'm going to order some for my car. Might be worth a look.

Officially too many mods to list...

FYI: Dipping a tooth brush in adhesive remover works good, use a small trimmer to get rid of any fibers that may stand up after using the brush.
