There are a lot of exterior signs that grab attention:
We worked with several companies throughout the year that each have their own style
We installed 2 new faces, on the monument sign and the building Sign with their logo. Both signs have the exact same color printing but we have arranged them in a different way.
The sport center chose perforated vinyl on the windows. The advantage of this is you can see through when you are inside but no one from outside can see the interior. This is a great choice if you are looking for some privacy.

Just before Christmas, Signs A La Carte went to Savvy Custom Gifts to install window clings on doors and white lettering in their showroom and on their corridor wall.
By the way, Savvy Custom Gifts offers custom, personalized gifts, gift baskets, and promotional products. Owner Katie Taylor and her creative team will partner with you to design and create beautiful and affordable personalized gifts for your family, friends, and customers.
Katie wanted to have white lettering with her company’s logo on two walls. We used the Graphtec plotter to cut the design, weeded the extra material, and masked the signs to be installed. Her business also had several glass doors that needed to be updated with vinyl.
Benefits of Window Clings
Signs A La Carte installed printed window clings. These decals have no adhesive backing, and static electricity helps them stick to the smooth surface. Window clings can be printed and cut into any shape your business needs. They’re made from flexible, easy-to-move thin vinyl film that can be installed in seconds.
Since the clings have no adhesive backing, you can easily reposition them if needed and even use them in another location. Most importantly, this product leaves no residue.
Look at the surface you have on your trailer, don’t you think advertising your business on the square footage could be a good idea?
If you look at surveys, they say that one vehicle wrap can generate between 30,000 – 80,000 impressions per day. Advertising for fleet vehicles increases name recognition 15 times more than other advertising media. Mobile advertising reaches consumers not exposed to newspapers, radio and television. Here is a great article explaining all these details https://www.bigpicturegraphics.com/car-advertising-statistics/
Advertise your business with Vehicle Wraps.
Our team from Signs A La Carte discuss with you 4 options we offer such as: full vehicle wraps, half vehicle wraps or cut letters & graphics that will fit your budget.
To wrap your vehicle, we print any color on a mat, gloss or reflective high-quality products from 3M and Avery. Vinyl are laminated to be able to withstand moisture or rain, color change due to the sun, and are not damaged by debris that is left on the road. Our Graphtec machine cut letters and shapes in the adhesive vinyl perfectly.
Per our conversation, Signs A La Carte will better understand your goal and will deliver the best solution that will promote your brand and generate business. We will talk about logo, website, tagline, list of offerings, phone number and graphics to optimize the space usage of your trailer.
When the picture in your mind becomes reality
A great example of vehicle graphics is the last trailer we did for Neufer Lawn Care. Matthew Neufer came to our store and told us what he hoped to see on his trailer. He wanted to have the design of his tee shirt with lettering on 2 sides. His goal is to show on site, when he works, his brand and what he does. We talk about the color as well. He sent us a high-quality file of the logo and business name, and the words he wanted to put on the trailer. When we print the file with our digital printer, there won’t be any pixels and the picture will have a clean and perfect rendering. We sent him a proof and he came back to us with ideas of how this could be improved. We changed what was on the proof to answer his requests, the color and location of words on the 2 sides.
We really appreciate working with someone who knows exactly what he wants for his design.
If you need someone to take care of your garden, Matt is a very professional person, you can see all the jobs he did on his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/neuferlawncare/
If a company (not only a landscaping company, of course!) has multiple trailers, we can duplicate easily the first we have done, because we are consistency in printing and cutting. As we already have the design, the colors and measurements, all the trailers will look the same with the same graphic. If the vehicle is not the same model, we will adapt everything in order to have your brand be recognized on the road and catch attention. That’s what we call fleet management.
Would you consider wrapping your trailer with vinyl for a real investment? Would you like to know more about the products and services that can benefit your business? Contact Signs A La Carte today and we will help you schedule a free consultation!
Monument Signs, Building Signs and Store Windows for retail stores in West Chester area.
As the owner of a retail store, you probably know you need signs, but you might not know where to begin. Signs A La Carte can help you decide. After you contact us, we’ll meet with you at your business to discuss your needs, goals, and preferences. We’ll also bring our book with images of previous jobs to give you some ideas.
Types of Exterior Retail Signage
To make your business visible to potential customers, we recommend putting your business name in various places outside of your business.
On the Monument Sign
The monument sign or pole at the entrance to the commercial area is a great place to show people they’ve come to the right location. Whether the panel face is large or small, we’ll update the signage for you.
On the Building
Do you want to take advantage of low-voltage LEDs inside your store sign? Channel letters are a great example, but you can also have an LED lighted box, where we can slide in an acrylic face with your business’s name.
The Signs A La Carte team can manufacture the shape, size, and outdoor material of your choice or install dimensional letters. Large outdoor building signs do more than direct people to your business—they project an image with your unique brand and represent your care and professionalism.
On Store Windows
We can apply various types of vinyl to fit your needs, including decals that are visible from the parking lot or colorful, perforated vinyl. The perforated vinyl allows visitors from inside your store to see outside, but the people on the outside aren’t able to see in.
Another way to professionally add important information to your storefront entrance or window is to apply vinyl lettering. Signs A La Carte customizes vinyl letter stickers (font, color, and size) with your business name, hours, and the types of products and services you offer.
The Signs A La Carte Guarantee
Sometimes you need to split your payments into separate installments. In this case, we can install what’s most important to you to promote your business. Generally we install the building signs, followed by the window signs.
Our team works hard every day to be known as the company that guarantees quality, well-manufactured products. We appreciate our customers for trusting us with their business. Meeting with them to present the many options they have is important to us.

Installing Channel Letters for the New Agway Storefront Sign, by Signs A La Carte- West Chester , PA-
Signs A La Carte provides and installs signs for a short and/or permanent period.
One day we received a message from a local business owner. His business was moving, and he needed a banner to say where the business was moving and one for the new shopping center and business location.
Signs A La Carte worked with Cory Mattia, owner of the West Chester Agway store, built in 1976 primarily as a farm and feed store. Agway recently moved from its Matlack Street location to the Commons of Thornbury near the Route 926/202 intersection. For his smallest facility, Mr. Mattia decided to focus on specific categories of products rather than being too diversified.
Agway was also renamed Agway Wild Birding Center. Mr. Mattia wanted customers to know the store was still open, but with a different name and location, so he decided to keep the brand and logo.
Installing channel letters on a building requires a permit from the township. Fortunately, everything went well with the permit, and Signs A La Carte created two large format banners: one for the pylon where the store was closing, and another where the store was opening.
We also added the business name to the monument sign at both entrances of the shopping center. In this shopping center, we replace the business name on the monument sign when a tenant leaves, using a plain green plaque until there’s a new tenant.
Raceway vs. Flush Mounted Signs
The difference between the two (raceway and flush) is the method of installation.
A raceway is a rectangular sign mounting structure that holds all wiring and electrical components for the letters. It generally requires three or four drill holes to mount this setup.
Flush mount setup requires between three and five holes in the facade for each letter. Our installers fish the wires through the holes before securing the individual elements.
Building owners usually prefer the raceway option because it does the least amount of damage to the facade.
A storefront sign can also be a lighted box, an unlit sign with dimensional letters, or a custom-made face with a business’s colors, design, and shape. Check out our website page to see a few examples of the storefront sign we’ve created.

How Frosted and Etched Vinyl Graphics Give Your Business More Privacy by Signs A La Carte - West Chester, PA-
Frosted or etched adhesive vinyl graphics keep privacy in conference rooms and executive offices or represent the corporate brand temperately, on sliding doors and glass partitions.
The terms frosted and etched glass come from the type of glass work that existed before vinyl. Etched and frosted glass are generic terms for decorative, translucent glass that obscures visibility and also diffuses light. The difference between the two is in their meaning.
Etching is the process of altering the surface of the glass to create a decorative effect. Frosting changes the surface of the glass from transparent to translucent to create an opaque, cloudy appearance. This is usually achieved by acid-etching, sometimes called ‘French embossing,’ one of the oldest decorative glass techniques. Thousands of years ago, craftsmen discovered that heating fluorite, a dark green mineral, produced hydrofluoric acid. When applied to glass, it eroded the top layer of glass and left a frosted look.
Nowadays to get the effect of frosted glass without using a dangerous chemical, we use vinyl, which is applied on glass. This product is a three-mil, high-quality PVC film with a soft and constant light transmission that prevents reflection. The clear and permanent adhesive is widely appropriate for use on plotter cutting systems. It can be used indoors and outdoors on windows and glass doors.
Frosted and etched vinyl graphics maintain the privacy of conference rooms and executive offices. They can also help display a corporate brand on sliding doors and glass partitions.
Case Study: A. Duie Pyle
For A. Duie Pyle, the Northeast’s premier transportation and logistics provider, etched glass vinyl created privacy in the company’s conference room. Employees using the conference room benefitted from the natural light the vinyl allowed to pass into the room, while still maintaining privacy from the public hallway. Signs A La Carte also cut A. Duie Pyle’s logo out of the vinyl to create a branded wall.
When we worked with International Ministries, also known as the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society, we used frosted vinyl to make the entrance door more decorative. The logo is trimmed like a step and repeat banner. With a strip of etched glass at eye-level, it’s an attractive and sophisticated addition to the business’s ambiance.
River Avenue Digital
Additionally, frosted or etched adhesive vinyl graphics maintain privacy from the outside. River Avenue Digital came to Signs A La Carte for this type of vinyl to create a layer of privacy between the office and passerbys on the street. It gives the office a high-class, professional look.
Kids Clubhouse of the Mainline
Etched and frosted vinyl is also incredibly useful when working with kids. Signs A La Carte installed frosted vinyl on the windows at Kids Clubhouse of the Mainline, a daycare on demand. During the day, sunlight can pass through the vinyl, but the kids and employees aren’t distracted by what’s happening outside.
Whether you need an upscale look for your storefront or interior windows or you want to incorporate frosted glass vinyl for a custom logo or signboard, Signs A La Carte will exceed your expectations by applying attractive and versatile material. Give us a call if you want to install privacy window film at your business!
A Vinyl Vehicle Wrap and Outdoor Signages for a State Farm Agent by Signs A La Carte -West Chester, PA-
Signs A La Carte applied Reflective vinyl on vehicle and renew some signs for State Farm.
Signs A La Carte recently worked on a fun project for Chris Madonna, a State Farm agent in West Chester, PA. After purchasing a Smart car, Chris wanted to get the car wrapped for his business. He knew a vinyl vehicle wrap is a cost-effective tool for generating brand awareness, sales, and business growth.
We proposed the idea of using reflective vinyl instead of regular vinyl. Though the price per square foot for 3M™ Scotchlite™ Removable Reflective Graphic Films was higher, the more vibrant, 24/7 exposure with reflective vinyl was a critical advantage. Reflective film provides better slideability, air release, and removability for easier, faster, bubble-free installations and removal. With heat removal, reflective vinyl leaves little or no adhesive residue.
Signs A La Carte gave Chris a mock-up of what his car would look like with a wrap, and he loved how it brought the graphic to life. To protect the vinyl, we applied a clear laminate to shield it from fading, scratches, and road debris.
Chris Madonna really loves the new design of his car. He is so happy that his business name is visible day and night.
When Chris dropped off his car, he discovered we can do anything with vinyl, like building signs, directory signs, any kinf of signs to promote your brand indoor and outdoor. In addition to the vehicle wrap, Chris also needed to update his business hours and change the post panel in front of his office. We removed the old signs and replaced them with new signs.
As you can see here, we replaced the vinyl on the business hours sign and updated it with Chris’s new hours.
To manufacture the post sign, we cut a medium density overlay (MDO) panel. This is a type of material produced with a high-quality, thermosetting resin-impregnated fiber surface bonded to one or both sides under heat and pressure. The sign’s shape has a half-oval at the top, which can hold one-third of the logo.
Signs A La Carte applied a red and white printed vinyl cover with a laminate and then installed it on the post.
Testimonial from Chris Madonna: Thanks guys, as always great work, and done quickly. Call them when you need a new or better look.
Not only can vinyl be used on cars, but it can also be used for signs and building graphics to give brands and promotions greater visibility. The material can easily be printed on a large, eco-friendly printer. Unlike paint, which requires greater patience to apply because of the level of detail, vinyl lasts longer and is easier to apply.
Chris Madonna is a great Signs A La Carte customer who educates his clients about all types of insurance, including auto insurance, motorcycle insurance, home insurance, renters insurance, life insurance, business insurance, and more. If you need help with your insurance needs, don’t hesitate to contact Chris at 610-353-7171.

Signs A La Carte has a variety of options to custom signs in an office.
Whether you have a small business, a medium-sized organization, or a big business, office signage is very useful. Office business signs have two primary purposes: They help your team to be more organized and efficient, and they guide visitors and new employees to your space.
At Signs A La Carte, we offer a variety of customized options.
Benefits of Indoor Office Signage
Workplace productivity increases with wall signs. These signs can be mounted on stand-off for a dimensional look, or they can be directly installed on the wall. The creativity of your design can enhance the decor and aesthetics of your office. Office business signs also help point everyone in the right direction without distracting others in the office.
Types of Business Signs
Some common types of indoor business signs include:
Signs A La Carte uses a variety of materials to create custom signs like the one below:.
Applied on the wall, vinyl is a material that can be easily applied to make your name, logo, and lettering stand out in any color, size, or font you want.
An eco-friendly option, wallpaper covers the entire wall or part of a wall with the image of your choosing.
Window graphics serve the same purpose as wall vinyl. But rather than having your graphics on the wall, they’re displayed on the windows.
Frosted or Etched Vinyl
This type of vinyl is applied on windows to make a room or office more private.
In most offices, plaques are used to display the name of the receptionist or the company’s name in a professional style.
Customized to match your office’s interior design, directory signs help customers navigate the offices in a large building.
ADA signs are required by law. They help people with reduced vision navigate buildings and are commonly installed near elevators, bathrooms, and exits.
If you want to make your message or brand stand out, dimensional letters are designed to attract attention. These visible and noticeable signs help notify visitors when they’ve reached the right destination.
These signs have a sophisticated look for displaying eye-catching branding and logos. Acrylic signs are mounted with standoffs, and you can choose the color and the size. You can also mix different materials and create multiple layers by adding letters, frosted vinyl, printed vinyl, and more.
Aluminum signs can be used in three ways: as the face of the sign, as a cut-out that allows light and color to pass through the letters and logo, or as letters and shapes that directly stud to the wall.

Signs A La Carte can customize the size, color, font, and shape of signage that reflects your business identity. If you like the examples above and are looking for something similar or completely different, give us a call and our teams are happy to help with your signage needs.
