Today, we’ve discovered LED illumination, and it’s advantages are literally stupendous. They include: Major savings on operating costs and maintenance. Less pollution, land-fill, and greenhouse gas emissions – so they’re better for the environment. A more modern appearance for any signage – even outdated ones. Better visibility at night, in fog or rain – just about any weather conditions. Far less prone to breakdowns, damage, wear and tear, or unforeseen failures, so they’re more reliable. Last far longer, so your signage investment stretches over many

When we’re talking about awnings and canopies, size, shape, design, and materials matter.  Although they are designed for practical purposes, awning and canopies also add interest and eye-catching appeal to buildings and entrances. Awning Shapes, Canopy Designs Shed and waterfall awnings are what most people think of when they think of as traditional awning shapes. Alternatives to the most traditional awning shapes include concave, elongated dome, gable designs, and other “artistic” awnings that function as design features, especially on otherwise unremarkable building architecture. Designed to Demand Attention, Built to Last Likewise, while common canopy styles are functional and offer a clean visual element, more elaborate styles can serve special purposes. For example, cantilevers, multigon, and sail shapes lend themselves to

Brockton Enterprise Center: A Plan Comes Together Creating a mixed-use development with residential units, interconnected streets, and dozens of retail businesses requires tremendous cooperation among city agencies, business owners, and developers. It also requires many different types of interior and exterior signage, all of which must work together to serve the development’s many users. Metro Sign & Awning began working with property owners at Trinity Financial to begin creating signage for the $100 million Enterprise Center project more than a year before Enterprise Center, Phase I, opened to the public in November 2015.

Most communication is simple, with a single layer of meaning. But once you get into the world of graphics – where the best signage lives and thrives – you begin to find opportunities to communicate more than one message at a time.

Wendy’s has a new logo, but it contains a hidden message that’s very old. Can you spot it? … It’s the word “mom” woven into the red-headed girl’s collar.
