Does any one know how to remove the stamp on the wizard?

I would first try the search method.
If that doesn't work, acetone and elbow grease. And good luck. Dave likes to permanently scar his discs; Gateway has deeper embossed stamps than any other manufacturer.

Be carefull if it is a black stamp it might smear when trying to take off.

I agree on all fronts...search, then acetone, and then live with the fact that the stamp is embossed about 60% of the way through the flightplate.

Ease up on the handle of that stamp machine, Gateway dudes! :P

Crap, I had the sweetest idea for a Wizard stamp and was wondering the same thing as the OP. Now that you guys say the stamp is hella pressed in that RUINS MY LIFE!!!!!

I remember reading somewhere Dave said he likes to sink the stamps in there, he thinks it's cool looking to have them like that. :roll: On some of the custom stamps I've seen though, they aren't that deep, like on the couple DD discs I have and the infamous Wizard of Oz stamp. Also, on the softer plastics, he doesn't seem to go as deep.

But...it might be all kind of a moot point, b/c I don't think any of the Gateway plastic is particularly good for dyeing. I know the S is crap for dye, and I've only seen one attempted dye on E, and it wasn't anything that looked good.

I was going to post something about the DD stamps probably being easier to remove, but I agree most of the Wizard plastic I've seen wouldn't take a dye too well.

I've got a white one with the stamp permanently removed -- just acetone and elbow grease. But it was a disc that had the wizard image just barely embedded in the disc. If I were you, I'd drop David McCormack an e-mail and ask him if he's got any blanks he can send you. I've found him to be really helpful anytime I wanted a specific disc. Anyway, it's worth a try. He would probably also be able to tell you which plastic will take dye the best. I've got a tie-dyed Illusion that holds the dye just fine, but it's the only dyed Gateway disc I've seen.
Flick long and prosper.
