It offers a refreshing smoke-free environment. Few Estes Park getaways feature as many amenities as Deer Crest. It simply has to be experienced to be appreciated. Visit their website at:

How we made this week’s Throwback Thursday Deer Crest Resort sign

Paxton Signs constructed the two-sided Deer Crest sign in 2007.  The 6′ x 10′ sign features a graduated, recessed background. We designed it with elevated art elements and prismatic letters. We hand-carved and hand-painted the deer art elements. They were then mounted on an illustrated mountain scene. In addition, we hand-carved and gold-leafed the featured letters, “DEER CREST.” As with all Paxton signs, we designed the Deer Crest sign to tolerate extreme temperatures. We did this by triple-coating exterior paint. Additionally, we engineered the two-sided sign to withstand high-wind events.

Paxton Signs’ more than 39 year history includes hundreds of signs. Some are major monument signs, some small business signs. We’ve created ranch signs, lighted signs and signs made from recycled wood. We specialize in hand-painted and carved signs.
