Metro Sign & Awning 2013: The Year in Review

What a great year! Despite all the turmoil and difficulties for Boston, the northeastern U.S., and the world at large, we at Metro Sign and Awning have enjoyed the opportunity to meet the year’s challenges, to grow, to serve, and to do our bit to make the world a better place.

Some of our more exciting and successful 2013 projects include:

The Forum Restaurant: After the horrific events of Marathon Monday and the destruction that took place outside one of our valued […]

Inside Metro Sign and Awning – Craig Wondrasch, Cost Estimator / Purchasing Manager

Although the products rolling out the big door are nearly always “one of a kind,” and often highly artistic or creative, at the base of it all, Metro Sign and Awning operates around a factory. Every day, artisans and support staff deal in actual, physical goods that have to be cut, bent, shaped, carved, welded, sanded, finished, painted, and more.

Nothing happens until that material and the requisite supplies for the various manufacturing processes are procured. So in a real sense, […]

Signage Scam Stresses Small Business Owner

Signage Scam Stresses Small Business Owner

If you can’t trust your sign-maker, who can you trust?

That’s what Shay Kindle, owner of a do-it-yourself workshop in Lubbock, TX, is wondering after a run-in with a sales rep who scammed her, big time, on what should have been a simple, affordable, and effective signage project.

In May, 2013, Shay found herself targeted by local representatives of Signtronix, a national company. The smooth-talking sales rep proposed to fabricate and install an electronic sign to promote […]

Signs That It’s a Great Country: Happy Independence Day!

While Metro Sign & Awning is happy to call Boston home, we get excited when we’re fabricating signage for a West Coast architectural firm or designing custom signs for businesses based in Texas, or Tennessee. We’re just as proud to say we’re installing pylon signs in South Carolina as we are showing off photos of a giant banner in Chicago (or even a local sports team).

What’s our point? As the Fourth of July approaches, we remember that no matter where […]

Don’t Gamble, Just Win with Your Signage

Several Metro employees were at Twin River Casino in Rhode Island last week, but they weren’t rolling dice or playing slots (at least, that’s not why they went). They attended the New England Sign Expo as Metro representatives, sharing experiences, tips, and trends with hundreds of other signage professionals.

Signage Professionals: Sharing Knowledge, Signage Expertise

Our employees returned with quite a haul of new knowledge, which they’re sharing with everyone here. Hosted annually by the Northeast States Sign Association (NSSA), the Sign […]
