Among the most popular are Disney, DreamWorks Animation SKG, Harley-Davidson, Wal-Mart, General Motors, Tiffany & Co., and Microsoft. Especially popular among real estate practitioners are stocks from Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Starbucks. The frame also has a space for an optional custom message from you for a small extra charge.
