Default Decal Idiots

Is there a profession or position whereby someone's sole job description is to create and order decals fir their products? Reason I ask, more and more item purchsed have decals and price tags on them that WON'T COME OFF!!!!!
What kind of asshole would put a product decal with paper backing inside a paint roller tray???

That would be packaging engineers. My sister is one.

Never, and I repeat never, is consumer convenience a motivating factor for them. Oftentimes the opposit is true, in the name of theft protection.

Any kind of a un-peelable sticker on a product where it has to be removed..... WHY do you do this!?

In a store looking at a product and the price sticker was put on the important info of the product that differentiated it from others similar products..... WHY do you do this!?

Often the package is higher quality than its contents

I bought some vinyl wall sheets. Pvc.
Mastic them on concrete basement walls. Neat stuff
One side had a plastic decal. Zoom.
Comes right off. Ither side had a big square paper backed decal that took 15 minutes of soaking with Windex to get it off. Took 5 minutes to put the damn thing up. 15 to the MF sticker off.

Agree, I really get pissed when I get a bunch of PVC fittings and the stickers are right where you need to cement.

Since most of all the products I see the worst of this on are also labeled "made in china"........ My theory has always been either:

a) It's all part of a subversive Chinese government plot to destabilize our country from within by creating untold numbers of mental basket cases and serial killing type rampages, or

b) Millions of Chinese laborers sole joy in life to forget about their 3 yen and a slice of bread job is to say "fark you murica" every time they slap one of those stickers down.
