Metro Sign and Awning’s Award-Winning Services


Our expert design team works with you to create a sign or awning that maximizes its advertising and aesthetic values, one that gets noticed and is memorable.

And you don’t simply have to take our word on this: Sign & Digital Graphics magazine (a leading signage industry publication) twice recognized Metro Sign & Awning’s design excellence in their 2011 Sign Design Contest.

To create your business sign or canopy design, we build on your company goals and brand, neighboring signage and the specifics of type, size, color, lighting, mounting, and location – all while staying within your budget.


Business sign permitting is often a complicated process, and regulations and restrictions for signage vary by town and municipality. Metro Sign & Awning expertly navigates local sign codes and regulations, working with you to ensure that your sign meets all requirements.


Designing and building a sign takes lots of collaborative effort, but we’re confident we can design a sign that will fit all of your needs.

Learn more about our comprehensive Design/Build Process and Service.


Signs and awnings are produced in our Tewksbury, MA factory by professional craftsmen, using state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and the highest quality materials available. Our fabricators work with a full line of CNC machinery, including 5’x10’ MultiCam Router, 2’x4’ Vytek 75 Watt Laser & 2’x4’ Vision Rotary Engraver.

“Gymboree Can’t Say Enough About Workmanship & Service” -David Mitchell

“The build-out and grand opening of our new flagship Gymboree Play & Music center in Arlington was on an incredibly tight time-line.  Metro Sign was with us every step of the way, and ultimately was able to meet our expedited time table.  Our signage and awnings were in place and installed in time for our grand opening event!

I just can’t say enough about both the high quality of workmanship and the first-rate customer service we received.  When it comes time to open our next location sometime next year, I plan on having Metro Sign right there with me!”

“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
Northeastern University

Northeastern University, a private, coeducational research university in Boston, needed wayfinding signage to improve the campus visitor experience. 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.

“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!

General Manager

“Team, I wanted to take a minute to let you all know how much I appreciate the hard work out here at Logan Express. We were given a very tough date from the owner to hit and it is not very often that the contractor’s on site share the same sense of urgency. It says a lot when the entire crew is willing to step up and stay late at a moment’s notice. Thank you very much for the hard work and all of your help. Please pass this on to the guys in the field as well.”
