That is a picture of my new boxed copy, the label on my Half-Cut is much worse.  Cart sticker was like that day 1.  I was really hoping they would re-print the stickers and offer them for sale as the ones that come with the game are not good.  LTO type stickers would be the best.

 

That happens a lot with over the edge labels. The Activision and Coleco carts are notorious for the very same thing. I fix them using Scotch brand double sided tape. You just place it under the exposed sticker end and cut off any excess. Easier than using glue since there is no drying time or potential mess that could get on the label or cart. I even build my boxes using it over dealing with glue.

 

The exact version I use is this one...

136-137-237-permanent-double-sided-tape-

And no I do not own stock in the company  :lolblue:

#Labelgate 2018 :D

I'll have to check mine. I've had pretty good luck with 3M Double-sided tape.

Kind of annoying that this game cost so much and yet the labels are falling off . Need a label that has higher quality when it comes to adhesion . My label also came off on the end part .

Best loose-sticker-fix I have found is:

 

1. Apply very thin layer of rubber cement to underside of loose label

2. Apply very thin layer of rubber cement to cart where label should be stuck

3. Allow both layers to fully dry

4. Press label into place

5. Remove any excess rubber cement by simply rubbing it off

Ouch on the label popping up.  For my own over-the-lip labels, I found I needed to have a "curing time" where I sat all the carts in a box with a thin foam sheet over all the carts, and left a heavy weight (such as a copy of the C++ Programming Lanaguage 4th Edition, a dictionary, and the unrelenting pressure of impending cartridge shipments) on them for a couple days.  That seemed to bake in a nice memory on the label itself, and allowed the adhesive to better 'cure' to the plastic.

 

I hadn't seen Elektronite's pop up like that.  Their labels tend to be more flexible, so less prone to this in theory.   As KylJoy mentioned, a very thin layer of rubber cement should do the trick.
