so the question is
A. How do i make Stickers stay stuck on Samsonite?


B. What type of sticker (decal, window sticker, other) would be best to stay on the suitcase Long Term?

You need a sponge brush and a bottle of Aleene's Tacky glue. It looks like the attached photo.
squirt a small amount of glue onto the back of the sticker and using a wet sponge brush, spread it around.
Keep doing this until the entire sticker back is covered.
Hopefully that should work! Good luck!

How about spray paint? Make a stencil and spray on whatever design that you want. Just clean the surface of all oil and grease so the paint will stick.

anything with 'permanent' adhesive is best; you may need to rough up the surface under it with fine sandpaper if it is a glossy surface.

Heat-fusable material may also be an option, but you have to be very careful in application or you can melt too much of the surface.
