We are excited to announce that Simon Properties awarded Metro Sign & Awning the Design/Build contract for all new signage at Auburn Mall in Auburn, Massachusetts.
From Pylon Signs to Main Entrance Identification …
Our creative team is already thinking about the best way to guide visitors from the surrounding streets and thoroughfares, into and around the parking lot, and all over the mall. The package includes parking lot directional signage and traffic guidance, the mall’s main entrance identification signage – also […]
Wow, summer is flying by. We’re gearing up for some fun school projects (more on that later), just wrapped up a couple of wayfinding projects, and are doing more conceptual design work for some of our valued partners.
We know you’re busy too, but we remind you that summer and fall are the best times to schedule routine maintenance or to have us out to inspect your exterior signage and discuss any updates you might want to make before the back-to-school […]
Wayfinding signage projects are fun because they are unique – the wayfinding signs we create are not necessarily outdoor advertising, and not necessarily outdoors at all. Interior wayfinding projects really deserve their own space, though. We’ll write about those another time; for now, we’ll focus on outdoor wayfinding projects.
Like other types of signage, wayfinding signs can be illuminated or not, feature dimensional letters, and a wide vdesariety of colors, styles, and materials.
What’s most unusual about wayfinding signage is its purpose: […]

And since it’s in the heart of Boston’s financial district, there’s traffic all around. Our challenge: to make the signs pop for drivers and pedestrians, in spite of all the hubbub surrounding the iconic skyscraper; to make sure the interior signage was brilliant enough to […]
Bridgewater-based Callahan Construction Management came to us with a challenge: Actually, several hundred of them – of varying sizes.
Maxwell’s Green, an exciting “lifestyle amenity center,” needed interior and exterior signage to suit its style and budget – all designed and fabricated according to architectural specifications, installed in time to appeal to prospective tenants, and beautiful and sturdy enough to look good while performing well in the bustling apartment complex.
Rustic Style, Seamless Appearance
The first big challenge was Maxwell’s Green exterior sign: […]
Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.
Obviously, there are good reasons why many municipalities don’t allow roof mounted signage, and why virtually all municipalities that do allow roof-mounted signage require an Engineered Stamped Drawing, or ESD, before a permit is issued.
An ESD shows that a licensed engineer has calculated anticipated wind and snow loads and verified that the proposed sign, mounting hardware, and installation will withstand the weather forces it’s likely to be subjected to.
Fallen signs like this one, […]
