THROWBACK THURSDAY! Featuring: St. Peter’s Fly Shop – 2006
For hundreds of years, the ethereal quality of fly fishing has been admired by many but experienced by few. Recently, the sport has captured the interest of traditional lake and stream fishermen and women, as well as a generation of determined novices. It’s a centuries-old pastime that has become a 21st century passion. Devotees write books, produce blogs and videos that offer fly techniques and encouragement, and, sometimes, they open fine fly fishing shops. Such is the case with St. Peter’s Fly Shop.
In 2006, Paxton Signs had the pleasure of designing and building St. Peter’s two-sided sign for their location near Old Town, Fort Collins. The owners wanted to highlight the quality of their products and services, as well as communicate the artistic merits of the sport. That called for a realistic, hand-carved, hand-painted, greenback cutthroat trout! St. Pete’s already had a well-designed logomark, one that lent style and interest to the sign. Paxton Signs incorporated these elements onto a high-density urethane background that was custom-shaped, then painted in elegant hues of teal. The sign featured St. Peter’s name recessed in gold leaf on a striking black oval. Matching ornate posts finished the design, complementing the sign’s color theme.
Paxton Signs’ more than 37 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 and northern Colorado.
