Default Sticking down 1976 Ludwig B/O badge reccomendations

I recently purchased a 1976 Ludwig SBP, the corners of some of the badges are lifting a little. Does anyone have any advice on how to get these flush with the wrap? Please see picture attached. Thanks.

Hence the reason Ludwig went to the rounded end badge....
The thin double sided carpet tape works like a charm. Don't use the kind with the threads in it, get the one from Dennis company. I have used it on a bunch of rebuilds and on Ludwigs with the same issue. Just be real careful when you trim around it with a razor knife so you don't scar or scratch the shell wrap
