City revitalization, specifically in downtown and urban areas, has an affect on the economic growth of a city, its tourism, and its community. Signage plays a major role in helping cities revitalize their downtown areas and helps capitalize on those things that  make a city, even a region – authentic and unique. Signage for revitalization and redevelopment, therefore, is ideally incorporated early in the planning process. Preservation and Rehabilitation Preserving and rehabilitating a city’s history and identity is a major part of revitalizing and redeveloping its urban areas. Both preservation and rehabilitation of municipal buildings, historical sites, and retailers can help a downtown recapture and celebrate its unique past. Improving the facade of storefronts through quality rehabilitation of the city’s

Working with developers, general contractors and business owners, we know you have a lot on your plate – and the details of your signage project are not necessarily on the top of your list.  A significant benefit of Metro Sign & Awning’s lean management approach is that we are able to reduce our client’s headaches and provide them with a smooth and easy signage project process. So often, signage is the “last thing” that is planned, approved, and installed – and yet, a building cannot be branded without it. You can trust us to focus on the design and implementation of your signs, so you can focus on other aspects of your project or business. Read on to learn how

Working on and around Boston’s infrastructure and services is always exciting, and participating in the South Boston Waterfront Transportation Center has been very rewarding.  Recently, we completed the fabrication and installation of about 600+ wayfinding and ADA signs there. South Boston Waterfront Wayfinding and ADA Signage Project Completed Designing, fabricating and installing 600+ wayfinding and ADA signs on a tight schedule is much easier when your partners are as professional as those at Skanska Group. We salute Metro Project Manager John Durant, who did an outstanding job overseeing the work, and we can honestly say that everyone on our team went above and beyond. In the end, we were delighted to hear from Skanska Project Manager Mike Pugh that his team also

Can you see me now? Verizon Wireless, and many of its authorized dealers, depend on Metro Sign & Awning to see that their signage represents the company well on many sites. For some time now, Metro Sign & Awning has been an Authorized sign manufacturer for Verizon Wireless. And while the company has a comprehensive, 200-plus-page book of branding standards, there’s a surprisingly large “gray area” and much needed flexibility built into the process of design review. Accurate Information is Key to Best Signage Design, Installation Because every business location is unique, regardless of how many branding guidelines there are, there must be some room for interpretation. When a Verizon authorized dealer contacts us about updating or installing new signage,

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. But rather than a complete renovation, sometimes the most effective – and affordable – solution is to replace or upgrade the existing signage. Updated Signs Draw Attention, Increase Mall Traffic Metro Sign & Awning frequently works with developers and municipalities to modernize freestanding sign structures. We have retrofitted signs on many established properties to utilize dynamic, digital boards to display news about new tenants, promotions, and shopping center events – ultimately increasing traffic and sales.

All of us here at Metro Sign & Awning send a hearty “Congratulations!” to the team at Dellbrook and everyone involved in the West of Chestnut development in Quincy. We were excited and honored to be involved very early (probably before the earliest point in this time-lapse video!) interior signage evacuation map Metro design Boston While the video shows the dramatic transformation, you don’t see all the behind-the-scenes planning and design decisions that go into creating interior signage that complements a beautiful interior while serving an important (possibly life-saving) purpose for residents and visitors. More on that later. For now, here’s a glimpse at some of the preliminary sketches, hinting at how professional sign designers work to ensure interior signage meets codes, is ADA compliant, and is created and installed to be

Early in 2015, Metro Sign & Awning began designing a freestanding (pylon) sign for a corporate environment that would re-imagine Tewksbury’s workspaces. The corporate campus needed a sign that said more than “we’re here.” It needed to say, “we’re here, we’re corporate, we’re cool, and we’re different.” Enter Metro’s innovative design team.  Exterior Signage To Transform a Corporate Entrance The birthplace and original headquarters of Wang Computers, today The Center at Innovation Drive hosts entrepreneurs as well as companies like Corning Life Sciences. The mixed-use development includes office, R&D and laboratory space in addition to warehousing, and lifestyle amenities such as doggie day care, a fitness center (for humans) and a fleet of rental bikes.

Interior directional signage (also called interior wayfinding signage) is incredibly helpful to building users on a day-in and day-out basis. Of course, those interior signs also must meet ADA standards. But when a facility’s use has changed or a new group of building visitors is expected, a little extra emphasis can help everyone. Bright and bold vinyl graphics to the rescue! Going Back to School with Vinyl Interior Graphics Summer’s just begun and it’s already time for institutions to prepare for classes (and students!) next semester. Metro Sign & Awning is helping day care facilities, community centers and other organizations prepare for Back to School season with new vinyl graphics that add color, enhance branding, and assist building users with wayfinding.
