THROWBACK THURSDAY! Featuring: Open Country Adventures – 2006

“When Sherman McCoy filed for a homestead in 1888, Nebraska was still part of the frontier. Having left Iowa by train, he walked the last 30 miles from the western most stop at Elsie, Nebraska, to his new home – the home of generations to come.

Homesteaded in 1888, the then Lone Star Ranch was the predecessor of Wine Glass Ranch, Inc. — a family operation dedicated to providing clients with professional and profitable management of cattle and natural resources.

Through good stewardship and thrifty living, the original operation grew to almost 8,000 acres. The current operation includes farming, ranching, cattle management services and natural resource management. For landowners, Wine Glass Ranch offers farm, ranch and natural resource management. For cattle owners and investors, Wine Glass Ranch offers a vast array of cattle management services, and other select breeding opportunities.”

In 2006, Paxton Signs created the Wine Glass sign, using their logo design as its focus. We arranged the art elements to emphasize the ranch’s wine glass cattle brand, then anchored their name prominently, just below the stylized hill elements and wine glass logo. The sign’s shape was custom-cut, then sandblasted, into high-density urethane. The wine glass itself was gold-leafed, giving the sign additional interest and appeal. As always, a triple-coat paint finish insured the sign would have a long life in Nebraska’s sometimes harsh weather conditions.

Paxton Signs’ more than 38 year history includes hundreds of signs. Some are major monument signs, some small business signs. We’ve created ranch signs, lighted signs, signs made from recycled wood, hand-painted signs, carved signs, vehicle and fleet graphics – a continuous variety of communication art, serving Fort Collins, northern Colorado, and surrounding mountain communities.
