Exclamation removing seals

I orders my caps from a new supplier this time and the seals are clear(ish) instead of blue, I tried baking them out(which may have been my problem) and when that didn't work I tried boiling them... I can not for the life of me get them out! HELP! I am not sure If I "baked them on" or if these are just stubborn!

Can I ask how you remove the seals in general? I have heard of the baking method but not sure how to do it.

Thats exactly what happened! I baked them on there! those caps are now reserved for bows or clipies where the image goes on the outside!

Hoever on a good note! I love these new caps! The seal(when boiled) comes out SOOOO easy!

To remove the seals boil the caps for about 5 min then one by one pull out the seals with tweezers while the rest continue to boil

Ok, I tried the boiling method and mine didn't work. They are the caps from HG. I'll try baking them. S/one suggested leaving the seals in and placing the image over the seal - I've never done caps before - wouldn't that look funny?

Maybe I just can't boil water correctly! Not sure why it didn't work. It did come off one but it left a lot of residue and some seal was still on it - like it all didn't peel off.
