Illuminated Signs In Boston MA Metro Sign And Awning

Illuminated Signs Bolster Customer Traffic in Boston, MA

Illuminated signs may sound retro – many people admit to thinking “neon” when they think of illuminated signage – but unlike a few clothing trends, neon is not enjoying a resurgence in popularity. Instead, clients shopping for illuminated signs are finding they have some surprisingly “green” options to choose from.

Illuminated Signs that Go Green Are Good for the Bottom Line

One of the most welcome innovations for Boston MA businesses in exterior signage is the continued improvement in LED technology. New bulbs burn cooler, not only making them more energy efficient, they also tend to last longer – and customers love the way they look.

Follow the Rules to Gain Approval for Illuminated Signs in Boston MA

Metro Sign & Awning has worked with so many businesses in the Boston MA area, it’s rare that we’re surprised by building and zoning codes or local sign ordinances. On the other hand, our clients are often overwhelmed at the stipulations regarding illuminated signs.

For example, many municipalities allow halo lit but not face lit letters, as they are under the impression halo lit letters are less likely to be sources of light pollution. Naturally, Metro Sign & Awning advocates following all municipal requirements when designing your exterior signs. However, there are some cases where zoning board  and building and sign committee members have granted variances after hearing an explanation from Metro Sign & Awning regarding sign lighting techniques. (One explanation that almost always opens eyes: that the lumen rating for halo lit signs is actually lower than for face lit letters.)

Boston MA Sign Customers See the Light with Illuminated Signs

In addition to energy efficiency and the most basic factors regarding visibility and safety of a lighted sign, a huge array of aesthetic choices must be considered when designing an illuminated sign for your business. How will the letters be mounted? How tall are the letters on the sign? What type of font is used on the company name and in the logo? What types of signs are competing for the attention of drivers and other passers-by? The signage professionals at Metro Sign & Awning guide customers through the confusing and sometimes confounding process of selecting and ultimately installing the best illuminated signs for their businesses.  See some of our signs or contact us about your next signage project.

  • Expense Protection: Don’t spend another penny on your sign for the next 5 years! Every part of the sign is covered, including consumables like bulbs (even if a crane is needed to change one).
  • Change Protection: things happen, strategies change, and competitors emerge. If you choose to change your sign over the 5 years, a pro-rated portion of your original investment is applied to your new business sign or awning.
