    Have two on my car: one inside the back window --an old Apple "rainbow" sticker -- and the other -- one of the white ones they provide now -- on my rear bumper. I also have one on my fridge. The rest are all in a drawer, where I toss them each time I buy a new Apple product.....

    I would put one on my plain phone case it were smaller, but they are too big and tacky looking.

    I throw them out. I dont see the point of putting these on car windows or anything. I do put them on computers at work to make the one manager mad :D

    I had a rainbow sticker in the back window of one of my cars at some point in the late 80s, early 90s. I stopped into a gas station one night on the way upstate on a weekend, the kid pumping the gas saw it and was so excited he quit pumping for a minute and came round to my window and said after I fill your tank could you tell me about your computer, I'm going to get a Mac too. So like two idiots we stood in the falling snow for half an hour next to that sticker just talking about Apple's earlier machines and about Macs and Mac user groups in college towns relatively near to our respective rural homes.

    Back then anyone in the boondocks who actually owned a Mac and ran into someone else who did felt like it was a magical moment. It's not what I expected to run into at some gas station 40 miles from nowhere in most directions. Even in NYC at that point my work group were having trouble trying to convince our IT hardware buyers that we could get more and better work done faster for our clients in building working prototypes with.. Hypercard, yeah!... than struggling to get some pseudo-app actually working off a DOS-based setup just to check out the client's specs. We used to take our Macs to work with us on the subway... talk about a labor of love (or sheer insanity).

    Since then I use two or three of the little white stickers in different patterns to mark the top of each of my laptops since I usually have a pair of the same model. Think I have one on my car now in a rear window and I used to have one on my mailbox until a neighbor drove into it to dodge a deer. Bad choice, that. The thing was on a railroad tie sunk in a hole big enough took a couple bags of Redi-Mix. Apple bit back!

    It's fun, isn't it, to be somewhere and have an unexpectedly delightful conversation with another Apple fan?! I've experienced that a couple of times..... I also remember the surge of joy I felt back in 2007 when seeing someone else with the first-generation iPhone out in the wild....I smiled at her, feeling a kindred spirit as I looked at her iPhone in her hand and she noticed the iPhone in my hand..... Nowadays it just isn't quite the same, is it, when we can walk into any grocery store or mall and see a bunch of people using their iPhones or step into the library or coffee shop and spot the number of Macs in use there?!

    I was tickled when I saw the space grey Apple sticker that came with my Space Grey 12" MacBook -- what a cool, Apple-y thing to do! :)

    i am not entirely sure if people are collecting them, but there are a lot of people selling them on ebay. all different colours too! what is not entirely clear how many, if any, are original offically-approved apple stickers, which kinda skews the prices in the secondary market alas

    by-the-by, anyone seen any for an apple pencil? was extremely disappointed to discover that there was no sticker inside the (admittedly) rather small box it came in. -- maybe i should complain? hmm.

    Nope, just bought a new iPad Pro 12.9 3rd generation and an Apple Pencil 2nd generation...... An Apple sticker came with the iPad, but none with the pencil.

    I use them as a selling point when getting rid of old devices. "unused apple stickers still in box", I think that is why my devices sell so quickly, just the stickers people want.

    Heh, some time I should pull them out and count them! LOL!!

    I also have a rather fine collection of Apple bags as well -- both the white plastic bags they used to provide and the current paper ones. Just can't bring myself to toss them out!

    Plastic bags yes. Not seen the paper ones. My last few Apple purchased came via the internet.
    In fact I don’t think I’ve been in an Apple store for a few years.

    Stack them, and when they reach the ceiling it's time to stop buying :apple: stuff.






    Or at least I may consider stopping......

    Well I used one for the first time, to go on the back of my folio cover for the 11 inch iPad Pro, since Apple forgot to put the logo on the case themselves.

    Reminds me of the late 80s, early 90s and how there would be small groups of Mac owners I vaguely knew who'd talk about their computers as if they were pets. It'd be funny if that kid is still alive and on this forum.
