how to order
Our architect and designer clients quickly grasp the precise system of American heritage tilework, and are swift to employ them as signature elements in their designs, evoking an authentic aesthetic for their clients of period residences, restaurants and businesses.
Subway Ceramics can accept orders from design professionals, and will extend the same trade discounted prices for orders that are specified by a designer with a design trade account with us. We work closely with our design trade partners, providing complimentary samples, exchanging 3D CAD drawing of components and assembly details, and in providing technical support when needed to assist in the sensitive restoration of historic tilework.
Trade accounts receive discounts and periodic communications to keep you informed and prepared for your next period restoration project. Please use this form to apply for a trade account and share information on your design or construction specialty, suggestions for additional products, and feedback on this site.
Once your trade application form has been accepted, a login ID and password will be sent to your email with your account approval confirmation. The login page for your account will provide access to updated price lists, new product information, and variety of resources we have collected just for you.
Homeowners seeking authentic tile materials to restore their period homes often begin with an online sample order, and follow-up with a meeting with their architect, designer, contractor, or METRO showroom associate to begin the preparation of the tile layout and subsequent material list and order quantities. You will need to make sure they have applied for a trade account that we can assign to your project prior to placing your order.
As an alternative, you can work directly with our own design studio/showroom in Oak Park, IL. Here you will find Heritage Tile designers to assist you with tile layout and material selection questions. Visit www.oakparktile.com for more information.
