This week’s Throwback Thursday Hillcrest Farm sign spotlights the Colorado horse industry. Surprisingly, it’s an industry that impacts the American economy more than motion picture services, railroad transportation, or furniture and fixture manufacturing. In addition, the industry directly employs more than 700 thousand people. Further, an estimated 450 thousand of these positions are full-time equivalent jobs. The rest are part-time and seasonal. Nationally, Colorado ranks 9th in horse ownership. Moreover, the majority of those owners live in northeastern Colorado. Hillcrest Farm is one of the industry’s many horse boarding and training centers located near Fort Collins.

How we built the Throwback Thursday Hillcrest Farm dimensional sign

Paxton Signs has been building Hillcrest’s signs since 1999.  In addition, we letter their fleet graphics. We designed the Hillcrest identity to reflect the quality service they provide. We sandblasted the 3′ x 5′ dimensional entrance sign into a sturdy sheet of high-density urethane. The various borders, colors and graphic elements add interest. Finally, gold-leaf letters and artistic trim give the sign its strong graphic elegance.
