Mine are still in the boxes. I usually dont take them out until I sell a product. I put one on a Moleskin notebook and the clear boarder didnt look right because of the texture of the book.

I toss them in the garbage or keep them with the device box and pass it on to someone that might actually give a rats butt. It's a sticker, of an apple.... wooooooohoooooooo!!

Mine generally remain in the box. I can't think of anything I have at the moment that I'd want to stick them on. Pretty much everything I own, which isn't much, is impermanent in the sense that I could have a need to sell it at any point. Stickers generally don't help with that.

I put one on the back of an HP laptop at the office and it freaked out the guy who maintains our system.
"WTF, I didn't know Apple made HP's!"
He he.

Mine stay with the original packaging to be passed along to whoever buys my device down the road.

I've been making accurate scale models of every Apple store, in order of introduction, out of painted Styrofoam and glass. For the "Apple" logo on each store, I put one of those Apple stickers. Every 2-3 models, I have to buy a new Apple computer to get more stickers, but it takes a long time to build the models, so it's not too bad.

The only problem is I'm accumulating a large pile of Macs in the corner of my room and don't know what to do with them. Without the Apple stickers, they seem kinda useless.

Seeing as your models consist of Styrofoam and glass, I'd argue that they're actually highly inaccurate.

1. Seems like a troll.
2. Just because they are made out of styrofoam and glass doesn't mean the aren't to scale.

1. Agreed.
2. Didn't say they weren't to scale, just inaccurate (I've never heard of an Apple Store made of Styrofoam & glass before).

I dont understand the real need to add these stickers in the package. I actually never noticed them before I bought the iPhone 5.

Looked in my other boxes and surely they are there too. Now I have to handfull of stickers to stick around town

Great question and one i was wondering myself. I have so many of these in drawers but can't bear to throw them away.

I have thought about the common use of putting the one on the car, but i never have been a car sticker person. I even take the dealer stickers and license plate frames off the car. They are not paying me for that marketing.

I'd like to think of some other creative thing to do with them.

As an aside i had a couple at my office one time and gave them to a colleague and he used them to cover the logo on his company issued Dell

I put one on my car. I throw the rest away.

We did once cover someone's cubicle with them at work when we received 40 iPads.

I put it on all my accessories for the Apple products. I have many external HDD and I label the ones formatted for Macs with the stickers as well. The paint on the stickers scuff easily though.
