How to remove stamps from wood before staining

Any suggestions on how to remove the stamps from pressure treated southern yellow pine prior to staining with a semitransparent coat?

It's a fence. I've attempted paint thinner and denatured alcohol with very little or no success. Do the deck cleaners work on those stamps?

Cool

Nope. They're indelible.
The best way to remove them is to sand them down with a small belt sander.
Good Luck!

Either turn the boards over so the grade stamps are down, or cut them off. The former may not be acceptable -- you're putting the bad side up. The latter is a lot more waste. Plan accordingly.

But, like Mike says, "removing" the stamps is simply not an option. Sanding -- Not sure whether that will will leave an uglier mark than the stamp or not!!

Thanks ,

It's a Board on Board Fence that's already up. Can't cut them out or turn them over. Even if I could, they would then be showing on the other side of the fence. I already have a couple of those that I will just leave be.

Thanks for all your help.
