Before starting to remove the stickers, you need to know more about them and how they were applied.
The decals are made of different materials, and applied using varying adhesives, so knowing the specifics is critical to getting them off without hurting the paint underneath. Also some companies apply a clear coat to the entire frame after the decals are applied, so removing them is a long complicated process.
See if the LBS or a customer service person at the builder can give you more info specific to your frame.
