I've never had a windshield replaced where they didn't transfer the stickers for you. Any one know the best way to do this yourself? Can you just heat the stickers up and peel them off?

By the way, this is not fraud, I'm not taking stickers from another vehicle. I just don't feel like waiting at a shop.

I used to work in inspection stations here in PA (still have my license, just don't work there anymore). Go to any inspection station, and tell them you got a new windshield and need a new sticker. I'm not sure about emissions (don't have that here in central PA) but for the safety inspection, it shouldn't cost more than $4ish. $2 (plus tax, likely) for the sticker, and $2 for them to write it up. At least that's what all the garages around here charge.

The garages I worked in would just pull someone to do it, you'd only have to wait the amount of time it took to fill out the book, should be in/out in under 15 minutes. Just make sure to take your insurance and registration cards with you, they'll need them to fill out the book.
