    I recreated the design used on the Shanghai Tee (mentioned in this article: http://www.macrumors.com/2010/07/10/shanghais-apple-store-opens-to-large-crowds/ )

    The design is attached. The only difference is that this lacks the Chinese symbols on either side of the Apple Store verbiage. I don't know chinese, and I couldn't even begin to redraw based on the picture in the post like I was able to do with the rest of it. If anyone knows chinese and can point me in the right direction, I'd love to add them on there - I think that'd be cool.

    Let me know what you guys think! (if it's even worth thinking about...)

    Not recommended...

    Perhaps you can share your "Cease and Desist" letter from Apple when it arrives. ;)

    Otherwise, nicely done. The idea for the Chinese text is to get someone who knows Chinese to tell you how it sounds (probably write it out) and then after activating the Simplified Chinese (Pinyin) keyboard, switch to that and type in the characters.

    Generally, western text editors can't really do vertical text (it comes out sideways), it's easiest to set it using tabs to line them up.

    The Chinese says "Pudong" Apple Store "Retail Store"

    Thanks for "Pudong"! That matches wonderfully. I'm unable to get retail store to work though... I even used this to try and do some research on the words http://www.mandarintools.com/cgi-bin/wordlook.pl I'm unable to tell what they mean... any more help possibly?

    Try this, ignore the 3rd character.

    @heehee and @consultant I appreciate the input. I was able to pretty much copy and paste from Apple's source code. I have attached the new version.
