I've also heard that keeping a couple of those rubber thin pads that are for opening stuck jar lids can save you too. You use them to grip the blank, using two of course.

A little paraffin wax on the male end of the ferrule applied with regularity makes stuck ferrules a rarity in the 'prevention' category.
