Heat the sticker is a good tip. Some stickers you can use a credit card or similar to smooth out, others it will tear/scratch the sticker (Apple stickers come to mind)
Start at one side and work your way across, carefully pressing down where the sticker is actually laying down as you go... this way you'll hopefully get minimal bubbles to deal with afterwards.
