Colorado’s San Luis Valley is the highest valley on earth. The valley covers 8,000 square miles and is sparsely populated, dotted by a few small towns. The population of the six counties that make up most of the valley have a total population of just under 50,000.
It is home to the headwaters of the Rio Grande River—and Matt Beckner’s Ion Graphics in the town of Alamosa. Like many small-town sign makers, Matt does a wide variety of work and serves a number of surrounding communities. SignCraft caught up with him on a busy afternoon after he returned from a pinstriping job.
