How to make an Apple-Fan-Shirt

As you may know. Apple has a 16 year old program called the Apple Campus Rep program. It is a way for anyone in a four year institution to get free shwag from Apple while at the same time getting paid to market their computers, ipods, and other cool products. Since the selection process is pretty "selective" for lack of a better word, I had to up my game to stand out from the other 9 other applicants at my school. I did this by dawning my evangilistic apple gear to the meeting.

Ultimate result......*edit* =) *edit*

Step 1: Gather Materials

The List of materials are as follows:

1) 2 sheets of card-board scratch (from a box) that is more than the entire area of the tshirt being used.
2) A tshirt (prefer white for best results)
3) A pair of scissors
4) Box Cutter knife
5) A copy of the Apple logo on hand
6) Pencil and eraser
7) Flowral Spray Paint (Colored)

#7 is the most important because you have to make sure you get one that is designed for fabric. Flowral Spray paint is used to touch up flowers with darkened highlights and etc so it can also sometimes be used for fabrics. Regular acrylic spray paint (Krylon) can probably be used to but it may wash out.

Step 2: Draw Stencil

With the apple logo near by.... trace the Apple logo with the desired size you want on one cardboard sheet. An easier way rather than just eye balling it would be to get a blown-up print out on typing paper to just trace. In my case I just eyeballed it so that I could make the maximum use of the area on the front of the shirt.

This is the most art intensive part.

Step 3: Final trace

After youre sketch is complete and the Apple begins to take shape. Darken the region that most contorts to the final shape you want to cut. This will be your guide line and you want this to be very visible.

Use the box cutter to indent the entire shape by just going over the guide lines.

very cool, but riddle me this... (o; If you only have one powerbook, and apple gave it to you, where did the powerbook that you copied the logo off come from?
I think he re-did this in order to make an instructables. if you look at the last to pictures in step 7, the logo is angled different ways.

Owned the powerbook G4 already before I did this. Student Reps get the new MacBooks.

is this job based on a quota system, where you need to convert X number of new users or they fire you, or is it based on a commission, where you only get paid if you manage to attract new customers?and about the free stuff apple gives you, is it yours to keep forever, regardless of your 'performance' as an effective marketer, or do they ask for it bck if you don't have good enough results to show in exchange for what they provide you? i'm very curious to learn more about the specifics about how it operates, and if you could share any info, that would be greatly apreciated! :D

as a fellow campus rep, id like to humbly remind you that part of your contract is a marketing guidlines agreement, which your t-shirt flagrantly violates. also, i think it pretty poor form to call it the "laziest job you've ever worked" - the campus rep position is so independent and open-ended because it lets motivated college students get apple into their campuses on their own terms, NOT so you can freeload. dont think dave or kelly woud appreciate that comment, either... and technically, you dont work for apple, you work for volt.
"...I had to up my game to stand out from the other 9 other applicants at my school. I did this by dawning my evangilistic apple gear to the meeting."

sounds pre employment to me... Unless your contract is retroactive (which it shouldn't be otherwise he wouldn't have been hired), there's no violation ;)


Now I'm not sure if you personally know this guy or not... but do you know what other places of employment he has worked for? That could very well justify his "laziest job" remark. Compared to the shipyards and finishing shops I've worked in, my last job was the "laziest" job I've worked but by far the coolest/most rewarding ;)
neonrehan (author)  trebuchet037 years ago
you are very correct... There is an interesting backstory that I haven't bored people with but short and simple - I AM NOT EMPLOYED BY APPLE. P.S. I hope people understand that this was just a first/demo instructable that I thought of on the fly as a nice weekend hobby project. This is not promotion material but my own personal fan art that I do not solicit. Use it to what ends you see fit, not just to get a job at major consumer brand company. I have other tshirt projects I have worked on so they shall come shortly.

Thanks Christolles. I'm pretty liberal with the way I choose my words. So I apologize if you take it the wrong way but I mean lazy as in its not really work to me. Its doing something I already do and love. Anywho rather than make people angry, I have made the edit.

Do you think he knows that the Apple is backward?
neonrehan (author)  rickybobby7 years ago
no I don't think he did until now. did the last pic using iSight on imac so its mirrored.

this would be realy cool if there was a way i could do it but im not in college yet so i cant

so what do you do as a "campus Rep"?
it's considered a "social marketing" position. show off apple gear, know everything about apple, direct users to the proper tech support for their issues, hold events with apple press, put up posters, hand out fliers, etc. its basically the best job ever.
