Removing lettering from leather...

I got a pair of A* GP Plus gloves and they have this white lettering on them... Seems to be painted on... I was wondering how you could get this stuff off... Goof Off? I just don't want to ruin the gloves...

If it is, I have amazing control... it spells out "GP Plus" on both and "One Vision" on the right and "One Goal" on the left...

Dont use goof off, that will ruin stuff real fast. Have you tried rubbing the gloves with leather cleaner/conditioner? That might remove the paint.

Find somewhere that does Marine leather, like the seats in boats!

They have some good stuff for getting salt out of leather without ruining it!
