Stickers to mark Triballs

To help event partners at events, can we use vinyl stickers to mark game elements to show them as EP/Event property? Specifically adding them to this year's triballs which gives better event branding and would allow us to give them out at the end of the event along with awards (reducing some of the waste produced from the yearly game elements). We've found it hasn't really changed any of the durability of the game elements with our teams and just gives a better visual appearance. Or would this be an option if we give adequate notice to all teams and allow them to practice with them the day before competition matches?

Because stickers may affect the surface texture of the Triball, and could detach and impact the performance of a Robot, they are not a permitted modification for use during Matches.

Permanent marker may be used to mark Triballs for identification during Match play, and/or stickers may be applied to Triballs for distribution as souvenirs once they're no longer needed for use in Matches.
