Signs A La Carte designs and manufactures any Storefront Signs you need for your business.
Are you the owner of a new commercial property like a restaurant, a medical office, a retail location, a shopping center or a real estate agency? Are you located near West Chester, PA?
If you answered yes, you need some outdoor signage. But what kind of sign do you need?
We, at Signs A La Carte, have a variety of materials to help you find the perfect sign for your brand.
In this post, you will find some examples of storefront signs that you probably see everyday. But which is right for you? Below you’ll see examples of signs that are either attached to the wall or perpendicular at the front facade like a rider sign.
The most exciting question you have to ask yourself is: Do you want your sign illuminated?
The benefit of an illuminated sign is that at night, customers will still be able to notice you in the dark and it can help them to remember your location during the day. We work with an electrician to install your illuminated sign -- and you can choose whether you want to use LED or neon lights.
Another option for an illuminated sign is having us create an acrylic sign in a case. Inside that case we would add lights and the entire sign would glow in the dark like this company, Unique Hearing Aid Solutions, chose.
Maybe you prefer illuminated letters! In this case, you need channel letters, which are generally made of acrylic faces that allow light to be projected through the letters in a multitude of colors. We do it all!
Not looking for an illuminated storefront sign? No problem. We also make PVC, wood, aluminum or stainless-steel panels.
To embellished them, we use different methods like printing, engraving, laser cutting, and painting. We also use colorful vinyl or can add material like raised metal, acrylic, backlit or plastic colorful letters. Signs A La Carte can customize your durable exterior signage with your unique specifications. We can even help with a colorful underlay or installing a spotlight underneath to keep your sign noticeable in the dark.
We also install letters directly on your storefront like Gus & Ruby Letterpress. The material we use are very durable and easy to install. The letters are cut and shaped into any font style you choose!
Here in West Chester, the most affordable storefront used is a called a “sign rider”. A sign rider is usually a smaller sign that accompanies a larger sign or graphic (similar to what you see in a real estate frames). Sign riders are usually placed either below or above (or both) the larger graphic in the frame. Additionally they are used on posts and even hang from iron or wooden hangers. The sign is attached perpendicular to your business. We attach your vinyl to wood or an aluminite sheet, with the information you need
Did you know that your location is on a specific zoning map? That means that you’re not exactly able to do whatever you want. You have to follow the directives from your city or township. Illuminated signs require a permit, not just the preexisting sign rider. You can simply replace sign riders with new information if you keep it the same size. But to make it bigger or change any other specifications to your outdoor signage, you need to check with your city or town -- and definitely your landlord.
Signs A La Carte can produce any sign you can dream up! Just come with your ideas (and permits lol) and we will bring your dreams to life.
Signs A La Carte was Center Stage at Citadel Country Spirit USA Music Festival. We printed more than 100 signs (banners, posters and pictures for A-frames).
Signs A La Carte was proud to be the official local sign vendor for Citadel Country Spirit USA music festival, a three-day country music festival in the Brandywine Valley this past August 24-26, 2018. The festival took place at The Lugwig’s Corner Horse Show Grounds in Chester County, Pennsylvania. The festival featured more than 20 country music artists as well as food, beverages, and wide variety of activities. It was packed with excited music lovers from all over!
The festival organizers asked us to do over one hundred signs including banners, posters and pictures for A-frames. It was an exciting project to work on because we had to manage the work without getting all of the details right away. Our biggest fear was not having the raw material, if there was a last-minute request but like always, we hit this one out of the park!
During the three days of the event, you could find your way around by following our A-Frame directional sign holders & signs. We printed the signs on vinyl and then applied them to coroplast that slides into the A-Frames. A total of 24 portable signs were installed at shuttle locations, parking, and different areas of the festival grounds.
At the entrance, you could see more and more banners of different sizes. Some printed vinyl or mesh material with grommets for the fences and ticket booths.
We even did the stage topper, as you can see, no job is too small for Signs A La Carte. This is the biggest banner we’ve ever done!
In front of the big stage was the sponsor hospitality area. Look! Our banners are a great backdrop for the action…. Country music legend, Jake Owen crossed the crowd to go to the second story. He was being filmed walking across and everyone was screaming. Some people think they were screaming for the country music star, but we like to think they were screaming at the beauty of our signs!!!
Working for a big project like this one is extremely rewarding and exciting. Many clients with big events like this have last minute add-ons. We even received some designs two days before the show and were able to deliver on time. We always keep a little extra in stock for last-minute surprises!
The morning of the delivery, we had to do 8 ticket signs, we did and were ready to deliver on time!!!!
Signs A La Carte will help you to promote your business with A-Frame from Plasticade.
If you need an easy way to promote your message or your event, indicate a direction, a new address or have a new menu, Signs A La Carte has white portable signs for rent or for sell. Restaurants, schools, shops and festivals are using the system of Deluxe Signicade A-frame from Plasticade to sponsor their message temporary on their sidewalk, paved area or grass. The high quality of the sidewalk sign allows the possibility of being reusable.
The portable stand sign holds one sheet of Coroplast (size:2’’ by 3’) on each side. Your message will be printed on vinyl and applied to the Coroplast that slides in and out in the sidewalk curb sign, perfectly.
Two different technics could be used: cut monochrome vinyl or printed vinyl. If the sign needs to handle harsh and wet weather for a long period of time, a laminate could be applied on the printed vinyl. Having the possibility to change the coroplast on demand allows you to have different messages printed that you can placed on the frame when you decide. You may even have to one message on the coroplast that you can flip whenever you want.
If you want to have more flexibility and dynamism with your sign, we can transform your poster frame in a marker board, with a chalk vinyl or a dry erase vinyl that will allow you to change your message anytime.
Because of its light weight (20lbs) and its handles, you may bring back the A-Frame inside each night. It’s easy to fold and it could be store in a small area.
Please call Signs A La Carte (484-464-0111), if you need one.

Signs A La Carte did an amazing job by wrapping a kid's helmet.
One day, we got a message coming from our Signs A La Carte's Facebook page. A mom asked us if it was possible to wrap her son’s helmet.
The little guy needs to wear it 23 hours a day. It’s a treatment to help correct baby’ skull shape when
doctors detect cranial orthosis with infants. Helmets must be worn when the skull is actively growing.
We decided to help her even if it was our first time to wrap a helmet. We really like to have new challenges.
She gave us some ideas: she would like a blue color gradient, stars and a paraph saying:
MaDe OF StaRduSt aNd WiShES AnD MaGiCal thinGS.
Our designer did something amazing.
We thought it could be installed easily but in reality, it was not the same story…. We are manufacturing flat signs or 3D signs with superimposed flat layers. We have to adapt the vinyl to the round shape.
Hopefully, we used a very good vinyl. If this one is damaged, it will always come back to its neat and clean texture and it will perfectly fit to any shape it will cover.
The mom decided to have a French touch on it, we are very warmed by her thought.
She asked us to write “Le petit prince” on the front of the helmet.
Signs A La Carte was proud to help this wonderful mom. It meant a lot for her and her family.
Here is her message: ''Thank you again so much for all of the time and love you put into this!''
She was right, we spent time and love, and it made our day as well!!!!
We wish her little cute guy a quick recovery.
We helped restaurant chain, Bango Bowls, open the doors on their 8th location in West Chester, PA
Signs A La Carte, your favorite sign company here in downtown West Chester, PA, was lucky enough to work with the health food restaurant: Bango Bowls on all of their signage.
Anthony and Katrina Sandstrom are opening their eighth location right here in West Chester as a company and they have six business partners who opened the Long Island stores as well. We feel so lucky to be working with them because number one, they are great to work with and number two, we got to eat their delish food! (We’re personally addicted to the poke bowl).
This chain offers incredible acai and pitaya bowls, poke bowls, oatmeal bowls, smoothies, cold brew coffee, and much more!
Anthony and Katrina asked us to do all their interior and exterior signs. They needed a sign for the front of the store, decals for windows and walls, and anything else you can imagine from menus to promo cards at the counter.
They had a lot of specifications and we needed to do it on time before the grand opening.
The sign out front is made with black plexiglass and white and green acrylic letters for the wording and the leaves. Signs A La Carte customized the black PVC with the exact shape and size that Katrina requested.
On the windows, we applied white vinyl cut letters. The vinyl has two great qualities, it will survive to the weather. It can get wet and will never lose stickiness and the sun will never fade it.
Above the entryway, we used a matte printed laminated vinyl for the restaurant’s name and logo. The final effect is perfect. The choice of the color is very important, with the contrast black and white with a touch of green. The restaurant’s name appears very chic!
For eye-catching wall menus, we created frames that “stand-off” from the wall. The standoffs go through the acrylic panels’ edges and attach right to the wall, leaving a small gap between the display and the wall. This created a sophisticated, high-quality look. We printed and laminated the vinyl menu and applied them over clear acrylic standoff. As you can see, the menu is easily readable because of the matte vinyl, which prevents too much reflection from the light.
For the wall graphic below, we printed on graphic film overlaminate. The quality of the picture is very important so that we do not see the pixels when we enlarge the photo.
It was a real pleasure to work with Anthony and Katrina. We have stopped by a few times since they opened and they always greet us with smiles! If you want to eat healthy in West Chester, please try this amazing place!

Signs A La Carte, your signs company in West Chester, PA, had the opportunity to work with Oriental Medicine of West Chester on 3 different projects:
After Margaret gave us the logo of Oriental Medicine of West Chester, as well as their specifications for the 3 signages, they asked Signs A La Carte to make a beautiful sign out of vinyl on their office door and also to use vinyl for their outdoor purposes signs. We gave them different options based on their requirements and we ended up with an agreement to make them three decorative, useful signs.
The first sign we made was for their office door. Before the sign, when you entered the facility where the office is located, it was not easy to identify where their workplace was located. Signs A La Carte had 2 options for them. One was of vinyl on an acrylic surface with transparent effect. The other was printed vinyl applied on an aluminum composite panel which is the option they chose. We printed and laminated their logo and the name of their establishment to the vinyl applied on an aluminum composite rectangle and we installed the new sign right next to the small window on the door. Now when patients come inside the facility, they know exactly which door to open.
There was a sign hanging in front of the building and attached to it, which Margaret and Greg asked us to update.
On the existing signboard, Signs A La Carte applied a weather resistant vinyl, and we printed their logo, their name and the number and name of the street of their facility.
The sign rider looks outstanding! It is legible from a reasonable distance because of the use of contrasting colors (red, black and white), and because of the size and the font of the letters. Here is some advice for you: if you have a business or you are rebranding, avoid italic, oblique, script, highly decorative, or other unusual forms letters, because fancy characters are difficult to see from the opposite side of the street. To be legible you need a straight font.
The last sign they needed was a new portable write-on sign. Signs A La Carte gave them the choice between chalk or white dry erase sidewalk. With the new technology and materials, it is now possible to print directly on these two composites which can be applied on both sides of a corrugated plastic yard sign. Margaret and her team opted for the white dry erase board.
We thank Oriental Medicine of West Chester for working with us. If you have concerns about your health and you would like to learn more about using oriental medicine, do not hesitate to call Oriental Medicine of West Chester: (610) 431-2008. Check out their website at omowc.com

Signs for an office in West Chester: a front door sign, a portable sign and an outdoor hanging sign.
Signs A La Carte ( West Chester- PA-) manufactured and installed innovative products to embellish with letters, logo and pictures a lobby
Signs A La Carte, your sign company in West Chester- PA- manufactured and installed innovative products to embellish with letters, logo and pictures the lobby of the home offices of International Ministries (IM), in King of Prussia, PA.
International Ministries, also known as the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society had some specific ideas about what they wanted and what would best reflect their international diversity and work around the world. Their global servants and partners span over 70 countries. We worked with them to find the best solution to embody these ideas and decided it was all about the people being served by bringing a little bit of heaven to earth.
The original request was to include a Biblical phrase above the logo and 2 pictures on the side. While working with them they liked the quality and pricing of the product so much that they included more pictures around the building. The number of pictures to be installed went from 2 to 7.
The individual cut letters are made with thick white acrylic and individually applied for a professional finish.
The Logo sign behind the front desk, is made with acrylic letters custom matched with IM’s official orange logo color and applied on a PVC panel. Because the request was to avoid glare from the substrate, we applied a 3M linen overlay on the acrylic, the same that was used on the pictures. This beautiful warm white color background accentuates the beauty of the logo, and makes it pops out.
On the side there are 2 of the 7 pictures that were installed around the building. These pictures are hung with a cable system.
IM has beautiful eye-catching and high-resolution pictures that are enhanced by a hanging cable system. The cable system feature combined with the clear acrylic edge gives the picture a sense of floating in the air. Now when you walk around the building, your eye will catch the beauty of a little boy on the step of a house or the beautiful portrait of a woman with skin that shows every line of her hard labor and many years.
The look is so beautiful that when the CEO saw it for the first time, she told that it was better than on the proof. What a compliment!
Picture mounted with stainless steel hanging system
The last piece of the project was to decorate the entry door with something that is simple but shows off the logo. The solution that was agreed upon was to just place a stripe of etched vinyl with the logo in a cut out. It is a tasteful solution that allows the light in the entrance to come in and not block the view.
At Signs A La Carte we are thrilled to try new products and new solutions to satisfy and exceed our customer’s expectation.
If you have a project where you are not sure what to do or how to do it calls us and we will work with you like we did with International Ministries to find the best solution even if it requires trying new products. Please call Signs A La Carte (484 464 0111).
We are always watching what’s new on the market and we test these new products in house before we propose them to our customers.
