Default Emblem Removal

Hey I was just wondering if anybody had a good idea on how to safely remove a dealership emblem from your car without damaging the paint?

It'* the Texas shaped emblem in the pic below...

Oneway is to heat it up with a hair dryer then use dental floss behind the emblem. Work the dental floss the same way that you would clean your teeth. Then use some Goo Gone to remove the sticky residue.

mine came off easy on my SE. I just used one of those Bondo spreaders and my figures.
Came right off. then used some GooGone to take the crud off.
