Mettricks : Southampton’s Independent Tea and Coffee House
Mettricks is described as Southampton’s Independent Tea and Coffee House. As such, it needed signage that was as unique as the business and as good, in terms of quality, as the drinks that are served.
The owners did not want their shop to look the same as the larger chain coffee houses so they called on the ASAP team to create something that would best reflect its unique identity.
ASAP installed aluminium tray signs and projecting tray signs with trough lights to match with similar signage along Southampton’s High Street. The clients were delighted with the results. Jason Terry, Managing Director at ASAP, said ‘Working closely with the client, we managed to achieve exactly the right signage they had visualised.’
Mettricks is a family-run, community-conscious business, and its owners and staff are proud of its location and independence. Ergo, they sought a specialist service capable of maintaining and enhancing the identity and reputation of their brand. The ASAP team were the perfect choice to fulfil their needs and to help promote Mettricks’ ethos of doing everything with pride, honesty and personality.
The shop needed signage that would reflect its home-from-home welcome, making it inviting for those wanting to take a shopping break, meet with family and friends, enjoy a working lunch or just spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. ASAP took pride in learning all of this and using the knowledge gained to successfully enhance the company’s corporate identity and brand.
The time frame for the project was four months and the budget was small, but that was no problem for ASAP, which prides itself on offering an effective, reliable and competitive service that can satisfy any company’s branding and signage needs.
The Mettricks project was based on the firm understanding that a business’ signs are of vital importance for enhancing and showcasing its standards and services, subsequently being responsible for creating the right impression for potential and existing customers. ASAP’s signage skills ensure that each and every company’s message, image and brand are conveyed both professionally and emphatically.
