Our Spring went to the Dogs (And Cats)

Metro Sign & Awning

In May we were helping brand the National Education for Assistance Dog Services (NEADS) non-profit canine center just in time for their grand opening.  And speaking of furry, four-legged friends, most of the signs you see around a lion’s living quarters say “Beware” or “Danger.” Our client, The Ecotarium Museum of Science and Nature, wanted just the opposite: a warm, inviting archway to welcome visitors to their new wildcat exhibit. We did not disappoint! A Pet Project The NEADS non-profit canine center in Princeton, Massachusetts, provides dogs for the deaf, disabled, veterans, children with autism, classrooms, hospitals, courthouses, mental health practices, ministries and prisons. Their puppies are provided by breeders and animal shelter rescues around the country. When they came

Six String Grill & Stage

Metro Sign & Awning

The Briar Group, one of our long-term customers, was looking to open a new restaurant and bar featuring live music at Patriot’s Place in Foxborough, Massachusetts.  We were thrilled to be called on for this challenging new venture, Six String Grill & Stage. They requested production, design and installation services from us based on conceptual layouts. One wrinkle was that the original as-built building drawings were no longer available. However, we were able to collaborate with several of the original stakeholders to fully grasp the desired look and design specs. With a few engineering challenges and a short lead time, this ended up being an exciting project we won’t soon forget. Creating the “Wow” Factor The Briar Group’s design firm,

Waltham Music Hall

Metro Sign & Awning

Face the former Waltham Music Hall, stare up at the facade and you can almost hear the plinking of a piano, the tapping of shoes and the rustling of costumes. The roaring twenties brought the raucous acts of vaudeville right here in Waltham on Elm Street long, long ago. Built in 1879, the grand hall is on the National Register of Historic Places in New England. Literary greats like Mark Twain, Oliver Wendell Holmes and Henry Ward Beecher all lectured here. The Boston Symphony and the New York Philharmonic filled the 1,000 seat theatre with booming concert music. A great dance floor welcomed revelers from surrounding towns. Jim McElroy had been an admirer for 45 years, so finally he bought

Deerfield Academy Athletics Complex Sports A New Look

Metro Sign and Awning

The competition was stiff, but Metro Sign & Awning won the job. The challenge was to design and engineer a very high-end architectural sign package for the new $68 million, state-of-the-art athletics complex at Deerfield Academy in northwestern Massachusetts. Partnering with project development giant Skanska USA-New England, our team embarked on a major upgrade to the existing facility situated on the bucolic campus. A new, three-story facility was to be added to an existing building to provide 130,000 square feet of additional space. The centerpiece of the plan was a new 20,000-square-foot structure where every sport could be played including football, field hockey, soccer, lacrosse, volleyball, baseball and softball. The building would also have a jogging track, batting cages, exercise/yoga

Why Working with a Comprehensive Sign Company Helps Establish Your Brand

Metro Sign and Awning

Your company’s signs, awnings and enclosures do much more than simply tell people where your establishment is located. When designed and displayed correctly, quality signage can instill trust in your brand, attract new customers and even provide familiar physical and conceptual landmarks for existing customers.

Delaware Valley Corporation – Case Study

Metro Sign and Awning

Sign of a Fitting Tribute From putting greens to Bose speaker screens, you’ve seen and touched their industrial fabrics manufactured for over 65 years to meet a myriad of consumer and commercial needs. Still, the Delaware Valley Corporation is not a household name you’re likely to hear even in passing. But now anyone passing 600 Woburn Street will surely notice the name on the new sign flanking the entrance to Dom DiMaggio Industrial Park in Tewksbury, Massachusetts.   Consolidating two manufacturing plants and moving their corporate headquarters here from Lawrence, Massachusetts, occasioned the new signage. The customer hired Metro Sign & Awning to design and deliver a statement piece that would be prominent and well positioned. Delaware Valley Corporation was

Time to Refresh Your Sign? Focus on LED Retrofit

LED retro-fit, custom, less energy

The sign outside your business is the first representation of your company, and in many cases, it’s the first impression customers get of your company. Having an old and worn sign with random burned out bulbs isn’t the best way to make a good first impression. Retrofit LEDs can improve energy efficiency, reduce service and maintenance, and have a longer lifespan. If you’re ready to give your sign a fresh look, consider retrofit LEDs. These retrofit LEDs are different from regular LED light fixtures, since they can utilize existing light fixtures and sockets. Here are some of the other unique benefits they offer.
