I make bows and bottlecaps. I have never used the dome stickers. But several of my customers hate them. I would too if I bought bows with them. I had several bow makers ordering caps from me then they started making their own with the stickers. Eventually they came back after all the neg feedback from their customers complaining about the images coming off their bows. I agree with your entire post. To each their own but the xyron sticker maker is such a time saver. I would hate to glue each individual pic with anything else.
