I just spent a good two hours removing the picture from a standard Ice Slizer throwing disk, trying very carefully not to damage the plastic:

The result isn't perfect, but still considerably better than my previous attempts. The surface of the disk turned out rough and canvas-like with several small "patches" of sorts in the texture, but nothing awfully conspicuous.

 

Anyone interested in obtaining it can feel free to make me an offer.

Did you sand it or remove it with solvent? Because 2 hours sounds... a little bit long :P. I tried 6 different solvents and one of them (but I don't remember which since it was 1,5 year ago xD) was affecting only print, not plastic. It took me around 10 minutes to gentle remove print from Slizer disc.

I did use solvent, but one that clearly affects the plastic as well. I tried several solvents as well and none of them seemed to affect just the print.

 

But that's encouraging, at least; I had actually given up trying to find a proper solvent. Do you think you could try and remember what kind it was? And do you mind sharing, of course? :P

I don't have time for this at the moment, but when I will find some free time, I will try again (I have bunch of Slizer discs prepared for this :P) since I have all of solvents which I tried 1,5 year ago. And of course I can share :).

Thanks, that'd be awesome. Someone with chemical expertise could probably figure this out pretty quickly, actually. I'm sure it's a matter of basic chemical composition and the contents/concentration of the solvent.

In my experience, removing print from parts is best done using a pencil eraser and making light, repeated swipes across the surface.

 

It's obnoxious, but the end result is worth it. These erasers work the best: https://i5.walmartimages.ca/images/Large/112/381/999999-724328112381.jpg

 

I've removed print from dual-molded minifig legs for my custom superheros. I can upload pictures if anyone is interested.
