They give them out for free and if people want, they put them up. People put up Ferrari stickers too. It's a personal choice. Why do you have such a problem with it? People don't pay you enough attention, is that why you're calling them dumb? Here, look, I'm doing it right now what are you gonna do about it?

Dude do you know that sign you have that I made for Apple was sold to them for over $2000? Apple is going to wonder why they are a missing a sign. That worker had no right to just give it to you or your friend. Just letting you know. Hell I want one too now.

$2,000? I definitely got it for next to nothing. From what my brother said, him and his friend asked one of the workers about it. He told them it wasn't on the list of items Apple wanted back from the old store. Said if they came back for it they could have it. Apparently a few other students wanted it but never came back to take it.

Whats to much work? Total real hands on time is like 1.5-2 hours.Water Jets cuts. Hand work, spray , bake for 2 hours . Done. And Apple wanted 1/4" aluminum.

i think that is a little overkill. that would be best hanging in a garage or a game room. in a bedroom its a little tacky. but its still freaking awesome, it gives me that pirate feeling. you gotta tell everyone "look, this is the sign from my local store. I stole it "

Needs a bigger gap between the Apple and the stem, bit more tilted also.

Just jealous!
