How chipped can stickers be?

My main cube has stickers that are a bit worn out, they are chipped in some places. How legal would this be and if illegal, would a delegate pick it out?

If I was really trying, I could probably tell you which face is the orange because the chip is slightly textured. I'm pretty sure that's against regulations but as a delegate, would they make me use another cube?

That is up to the Delegate:
  • 3j1) Puzzles are permitted to have reasonable wear, at the discretion of the WCA Delegate.
In this case, I would consider the bottom left sticker to be just a little too chipped.

Okay thanks :) I guess I'll have to use my backup main until I get new stickers.

One of my centers is chipped probably too much, but since it is a center, would it matter?

I think the rule of thumb is that the stickers should be relatively equally chipped, and the majority of the sticker should remain on the cube. That way, each sticker will still look about the same so you wont be able to tell them apart.
