Apple Retail Store Sign.

I've acquired an actual Apple logo retail store sign.
Wondering how i should go about mounting this?

I would get a kit like this from a hardware or Walmart type store.



Use the eye bolts to attach the wire to the back of the logo, then use the wall hangers.

It might take some work to get the leaf lined up if it's a separate piece like it appears.

Are there holes on the back that might allow flush mounting with screws in the wall?



There's always duct tape.

TWO2SEVEN I'd thought about mounting via that method. & yes the "stem" part is separate from the main part.

eawmp1 Its completely flat on the back, no holes.

cbrad82 Haha, i'll probably hang on to this piece.

It's exactly like this one, want to mount it the same way too.



Its a fairly decent size & weight. Not heavy, but enough for me to not use something like this for the main apple body.


Since it'll be on the wall behind my computer desk, i don't want it falling down.

I see you have one of the signs I might of made. Very cool . If I remember right it should be made of 1/4" aluminum. Also some of the signs were drilled and tapped.

Got it figured out, found a frame hanging kit at Lowe's for the apple. Mounted the stem with 5lb mounting squares.

Got it from my brother & his friend who got it from the on campus Apple Store. They were remodeling it & my brothers friend convinced them (construction workers) to give the sign to her. He asked if i wanted it, got it for a great price so i couldn't resist.

Might just be me...it doesn't look straight. May just be the angle of the iMac in relation to the sign though.

Nice work anyway.

So dumb. Apple pays people nothing to boast their logos yet they put them all over their cars and walls as if worshipping them. I love Apple but putting their logos everywhere is kinda.. too much. Don't ya think?
