throwback thursday north park visitor's center signOur Throwback Thursday, North Park Visitor’s Center sign dates back to the late 1980s. Located near Walden, Colorado, the sign was one of Paxton Signs first creations. It featured the hallmarks of our business: Effective art, fine craftsmanship and dependable customer service.

As mentioned, we created the sign in the late 1980s, before the Internet became an everyday communications tool. It took many phone conversations and consultations to make the sign happen. Back then, we used hand-drawn layouts to illustrate our sign designs. Additionally, we had numerous one-on-one consultations until a final design was agreed upon. Today, using computers, we create signs for business owners we’ve never met personally!

How we made the Throwback Thursday North Park Visitor’s Center sign

First, we custom-shaped and sandblasted the dimensional sign in high-density urethane. This included the large front text panel. Then, we built it to last decades in the harsh North Park climate by triple-coating it with exterior paint. Finally, we engineered the structure to withstand high-wind loads and extreme temperatures.
