“Our Space Has Gone from Ordinary to Extraordinary” – Stephen Johnston
Sea Grille

We appreciate Metro’s partnership in support of Meritage and Rowes Wharf Sea Grille’s signage at the Boston Harbor Hotel. As you’re able to see in the before/after photos, our space has gone from ordinary to extraordinary with the use of eye-catching branding in the form of signage! The Meritage Canopy and Marquee sign truly brands the corner and acts as a marketing tool, attracting customers into the bar. Not only is the sign elegant, but effective.

Our Rowes Wharf Sea Grill Projecting Sign brings forth a classic presence, attracting attention from the daily crowds of pedestrian and auto traffic. Adding painted fabric banners and additional branding facing the Harbor ties it all together and identifies our 5-star estabishments at our rear entrances, attracting harbor tours/traffic to enjoy our indoor/outdoor seating.

Thank you for working with Sousa Design and The Boston Harbor Hotel team to perfect color preferences, materials, and bring forth an excellent result of elegant signage and increased business!

“Case Study: Iconic Neon Sign Rejuvenated by LEDs; Saves Money Too”


The iconic, mid-1950s letters on the roof of the bank’s HQ in Cambridge MA continually caused grief. The neon would frequently go dark (not the right impression for a client marketing its competence!) and each repair cost $400 or more.


Metro Sign & Awning replaced the leaky faces and swapped the neon for vastly more energy efficient LED’s. Now the client’s sign is brighter, more noticeable and saves energy, CO2 and money!

“The Signs Look Fantastic” – Christina Salvato , Kim Sternick

They called on Metro because of our experience and fabrication expertise. Before and after the signs were in place, however, they had a few things to say about our customer service, as well.

First off, I can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you and your team have put into this! I really appreciate it ,,,  your responsiveness and details were extremely helpful.

The signs look fantastic! The installers were delightful to work with even in the pouring rain! Thank you so much for all of your efforts- I’m so excited to see it all complete.
