The Infinite Possibilities of Vinyl Graphics

New owner of full-service salon sees vibrant results with new logo, new sign

When Infinity Hair, a full-service salon and barbershop, was purchased, the new owner needed a new logo and sign. Metro Sign and Awning helped create a bold new look for the business.

The owner had several ideas. Metro’s Keene designer took those ideas and developed several concepts as a guide to steer the general direction of the sign.

“Once we had picked a basic concept, (designer Kris Arnold) dove in […]

Big Retail Center Calls for Bigger Sign in Keene

When the owner of One-Stop Country Pet Supply planned to move to one of Keene, NH’s biggest retail centers, she knew she needed a big, bold sign to help her reach more shoppers. Patrick Grizzard, Sales Manager at Metro’s Keene location, was delighted to help her bring her vision to life.

Large and Oversized Signs Go Big for Your Brand When Design is Right

When it comes to business signage, size matters. While it’s not always accurate to say, “the bigger the better,” well, sometimes, it is.

When you’ve got the permits and the plan to “go big,” we say, GO […]

Would Your Sign Win An Academy Award?

Metro Sign and Awning graphic designers and fabricators love bringing signs to life. But would our jobs make a good movie? Well, probably not. Carefully fabricating any sign requires extensive knowledge and experience with a host of tools, techniques and materials. And painting the finished sign is another highly specialized part of the process. While we know that watching paint dry isn’t exactly the stuff that wins Oscars or Academy Awards, we had to share this video of one of our great painters […]

A Sign is Born!

We hope your 2017 is off to a stellar start!  Here’s a look at one of the first signs that came out of our fabrication shop this year.

 

Is Your Store Signage Drawing Traffic for Holiday Shopping 2016?

Shopping center developers know they need to help tenants capture point-of-sale traffic on Black Friday –  the busiest shopping day of the year. More importantly, effective signage should attract shoppers all year long.  An out-of-date center with tired signage just won’t draw the traffic it needs to.

Updated Signs Draw Attention, Increase Mall Traffic

Arches punctuate the distinctive architecture of St. Mark’s School in Southborough, MA. The 150-year old institution has a dedicated faculty, alumni, and more than 350 students, many of whom live on St. Mark’s campus. When it was time to update interior signage, it had to be carefully designed to add to, rather than distract from, the historic private school.

Metro Sign & Awning had created other signs for the school, including a hand-carved donor sign. The sign was created by our […]
