What kind of "stickers? If they are real "stickers" like kids use or decals on the surface, a heat gun and a plastic card should let you peel them off. If they are decals under a clear coat, only stripping the frame or sanding off the entire clear coat layer will remove them.

hair dryer is usually enough heat. a heat gun may peel the paint.
