The main reason to use temporary signage is because it is flexible and functional. Sometimes the hassle of a regular sign is not worth it. In some cases you are not able to put holes in the wall where your business is. Temporary signage is a great way to avoid any permanent damage within your building. We created the signage that worked best for CoBi.
The Council on Brain Injury has been a nonprofit since 2007. We spoke with one of the founders of the organization. It started in memory of a business partner that lost his life to a brain tumor. We asked one of the founders why she chose to create CoBi, he said “I ran a local, for profit brain injury organization called ReMed and spent 32 years there, first as a therapist, then manager and my last 18 years as its CEO. I wanted to start a nonprofit to honor my business partner and to provide support to individuals with brain injury, their families and professionals in the field.”
CoBi has various events throughout the year to support friends and families who are struggling with a loved one who has a brain tumor. They’re main events are the Golf Tournament and the Award Luncheon, an educational conference for professionals every spring in Pittsburgh and then a variety of other educational programs and classes.
For their events we created some temporary signs including; A- Frame, a foam board with a durable cardboard easel back, a banner and yard signs.
The benefits of temporary signs
Whatever event you or your company is having temporary signage is always an option! At Signs A La Carte, we are able to help you design and create your very own custom signage. We want to ensure you have everything you need to make your event great.

The quality of your banners and signs was noticed by the person that used to organize these materials and I am hoping to spread the word of your quality.”

With business, companies, and even schools closing due to COVID-19 many accomplishments went unrecognized. Signs A La Carte wanted to do our part with helping the community.
Since high school and college seniors were not able to get the proper celebration they deserve, many parents and faculty have reached out to see what small gesture they could do to help make light of the current situation. At Signs A La Carte, we make custom signs, to fit the personal desire of the customer. Yard signs seemed like the perfect fit for the students of the community to be able to represent their school and themselves for this celebration.
We want to thank the mom’s who went out of their way to order from Signs A La Carte to make their loved one feel special. The orders first began when a customer of ours mentioned the sign she got from us on facebook. Her friends told their friends and BOOM we had hundreds of yard sign orders coming in. We are very grateful for the business during this current pandemic and even more thrilled that students are getting a little taste of what they deserve.
Each yard sign we create is different in its own unique way. They can be different sizes, have a different design, and can even be personalized. We want our customers to be as involved in the process as much as we are. If you have a design in mind we can make it! We make sure to pay attention to important details and colors. Each of the yard signs comes with stakes to put into the ground for convenience.
How we make yard signs:
We want this process to be simple and easy. To create a sign as soon as possible we take in account a few different things. If you send a file or image over to us we would love for it to be an Ai, ESP, or PDF. These files are always clean and sized/scaled accordingly. Pixelated images are the result of an inadequate file. A quality sign begins with quality resolution. Once we have the image we can then begin to collect ideas for your sign. Color, font, and size are all factors that have to be taken into consideration. We can even take logo’s or mascots from schools to add on to the yard sign. Now it is time for production.
Along with custom yard signs we also make lawn signs, banners, and flags. If you want to celebrate your loved one in a special way we want to help! Contact Signs A La Carte for a free quote on any sign you please. We are grateful to be a part of such a wonderful community especially during these uncertain times.
What kind of signs do you need to show that your shop is open? by Signs A La Carte - West Chester, PA-
During the pandemic period, whether we are in the red, yellow, or green zone, customers need to know if your business is open. A custom sign is a great idea to show if you are operating right now or when you will open your facility.
At Signs A La Carte, we work with you to make the right sign for you, whether you are a salon, a fitness center, a restaurant, or any other type of small business that deals with customers every day. To find the right sign for you, our team creates a sign custom with your brand, your name, your style and of course information the customer should know.
Just before we learned we had to close, Bernard Grogan, from Hill’s Quality Seafood asked us to do a banner for his business. He wants to attract customers passing by cars saying the store is open and they can take orders by phone. The delivery will be at the curbside. We sent him the proof of the banner, he accepted it, we printed and delivered in no time.
A few days later, he thanked us because the banner gave him new customers. We are very happy for him. To add to the good news, our company was accepted by the government to stay open under conditions. If he needs us for any kind of signs, he can come back, and that is what he did.
Following the rules of the government about the shutdown of the state, the essential living business could still operate, but in some cases, they need to have posters about the new employee rules. We printed the posters for our customers. They needed a new employee; we created yard signs for them to advertise. Hill’s Quality Seafood is a chain of 4 stores, 3 are in Delaware County and 1 in Chester County, their seafood is so fresh and delicious, especially their crab cakes. Do not hesitate to go and try.
Last week, he realized that he needed a sign to direct his customers to the parking lot when they came to get their seafood. We proposed to him, an A-frame with 2 posters.
Even after the covid-19 pandemic, they will be able to use the a-frame for another purpose. They will just have to change the poster. Something that Signs A La Carte can do easily.
You see, Signs A La Carte can make temporary signs to help little enterprises stay in business. We would like to mention we can do more signs than yard signs, posters, large banners and A-frame to advertise your company, such as flags or clings.
Many companies underestimate the importance of customized signage. Your business must stand out to be different from a competitor. Your business must have its own identity.
Here is what Bernard Grogan had to say about working with Signs A La Carte: “Working with Christian, Veronique, & Signs a la Carte was absolutely crucial to being able to communicate to the public that our small business was still open during the initial COVID-19 shutdown - we didn’t realize the full value of a banner until we started to see how many new customers we were getting. At first, we were just trying to stay open by serving some of our longtime customers, but our business actually grew and a big part of that is due to the service of Signs a la Carte. As we had to change our business operations on the fly, Signs a la Carte was there with everything we needed to make it work. When we needed to hire, we turned to Signs a la Carte instead of spending hundreds of dollars on an online job listing. We needed signs to help our customers understand our new system for pickup - we had the signs the very same day."
"From the start, working with Signs a la Carte has been wonderful. Incredibly quick turnaround, very reasonable prices, personable service, and quality products that they stand behind - they are exactly the kind of business we want to support and work with. And it’s not just a matter of simply wanting to support another small, local, family owned business....but you literally will not find better service or more fair prices elsewhere, especially from national chains or franchises.”
If you buy all your signage from companies that have ready-made templates, your personal style may not be reflected as you expect. It is very difficult to have an aesthetic consistent with this approach. But if your sign is just personalized for you, you can be sure that all your signage appropriately represents your brand. Call Signs A La Carte, we create custom signs for your open business.
Regardless of what type of company or business you are, chances are that you need a sign during this unfortunate time.
While we are facing this pandemic it is important for your company to stay afloat. To do this most effectively a large sign would be ideal to have in front of your company or business. At Signs A La Carte we are able to provide you with the signage of your choice. From banners, signs, shields and more we are able to work with you for you to have the custom sign that your business needs.
We understand the impact signs can make on a business and we are here to help. When choosing the right sign for your business or company there are many elements to think about. First you want to decide what you are looking for whether that may be marketing, safe work practices, we are open signs, or potentially we are closed signs. You want to show that your company or business is taking action and doing everything you can to ensure customers, clients or even patients are able to have a less stressful time.
It is important to stay healthy and positive during this time. At Signs A La Carte we are doing all we can to ensure your safety. We are sanitizing and making sure that when your sign comes to you, you will not have worry.
Health care signage & directional signs
During this health related emergency it is important that health care providers are getting the care they need. We want patients, doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers to be able to feel comfortable at their place of employment. Eye catching signage in the healthcare center will help promote the message.
Signage is important to direct people where to go. Locations may have changed due to the pandemic. Signage can indicate the new location and assist the people on where they should be. Directional signs are most effective when they are large and eye-catching.
Safety Shield and Poster
Plexiglass Shields will provide less contact with others. We can create signs that can be “warning” that may be displayed throughout the area. Impactful signage is important for everyone to ensure proper safety and lessen the further spreading of the current virus.
Restaurant and food delivery
As you may know, many restaurants are closed and only open for pick up or delivery. Well this may be the case for some restaurants many are not open at all. Your business should have a sign out front explaining what your current hours are. An example of this may be “we are still open Monday- Friday 10am- 6pm pick up only”. Short and direct wording will work best for customers to understand best. Whatever you may want on your sign, Signs A La Carte is able to do it.
Contact Signs A La Carte today for a free quote on your sign or shield. We understand the current pandemic is hard and we want to make sure that the signage process is a bit easier for you.
Do you want your business to be as cool as the red carpet?
Step and repeat banners began with the Academy Awards. It's likely you’ve seen your favorite celebrity photographed with a step and repeat backdrop. Adding step and repeat banners makes any event look more impressive because of where it originated from. To this day step and repeat backdrops are featured in the most massive events in the world.
These photos are then taken and put on various platforms of social media to enhance the advertising for the company. By doing this, the company is being promoted and the brand is shining through.
Here are some tips that will help you brand your business in a fun and different way…
Step and repeat is a design that is made generally of continuous logos of a sponsor or organization.
A step and repeat backdrop is not just for celebrities. Signs A La Carte can make them for any event. It is reusable for any charity functions, chamber of commerce meetings, networking or sporting events, and a great investment to have for your company or business. By having this, you are able to thank your customers and sponsors. No matter how big or small your banner is you will be able to transport it very easily. You can install it yourself in less than 10 minutes. The ease of the set up will create less stress for your whole event.
Branding is one of the most important parts of your company or business. If you put on events or even attend trade shows, a step and repeat wall or backdrop is a must. It will pay for itself by the opportunities you have to put it to use. Signs A La Carte has the best pricing around.
If your event is outside we can handle that too!
Our prints are able to handle any kind of weather: rain, wind, sun you name it. The ink will not run on your step and repeat banner. Our products will be able to do the job you want!
Even if you don’t have an upcoming event, step and repeat can come in all different ways. Some companies choose to have their logo all over their office walls. This makes for a creative environment and a fun office space; it is no longer just an empty wall. Recently two companies have asked for a step and repeat wall.
If you are interested in creating a better brand for your company or business, check out Signs A La Carte for a quote on your step and repeat banner, wall or backdrop. We would be happy to help you brand yourself the way you deserve, in style.
Signage is an important element when it comes to operating a church. The public eye wants to be proud of where they go to Sunday mass. A sign representing who the church is will gather the community together.
What's better that working in a beautiful building? Be able to feel proud that passers-by know what it stands for. Signs A La Carte is able to ensure you get the type of sign you are looking for. We go above and beyond our customers expectations and assure you that you will love your new sign.
Indoor church signs
Large or small all signs are needed within the church. Having directional signs will put members at ease, stress-free knowing where they need to go. You want your members to be able to have an overall great experience. Indoor church signage is most often needed for the labeling of doors, classrooms, offices, and any other room in the building.
Another main use of indoor signage is for temporary events. Temporary events held in a church may include classes, meetings, holidays or other types of gatherings. These signs could be displayed in the lobby of the church so members know where to go.
We recently worked with The Well Full Gospel Baptist Church to create the quality sign that they were looking for. The sign is made of an acrylic face where we applied a laminated printed vinyl. It is mounted on the wall with 4 stand-offs. The sign gives a new appearance to the inside church.
Outdoor Church Signs
Signs for the exterior of your church go far beyond the typical signage. You want to stand out and be creative for your own church. Members should be proud of where they attend mass and mesmerized by its beauty. A monument sign would be a great addition to any church so passers-by will be able to see a large sign out front of their church.
Here is an example of one we did. The sign is made of wood with flushed acrylic letters. The congregation can even change the time of Worship, the numbers are interchangeable.
Church window Decals
Churches with large glass windows looking to welcome visitors are able to display service hours using vinyl window decals or clings. Window decals are cost effective and provide information for your members in a space preserving location.
The best way to advertise your service hours and encourage people to attend is by using signage. Using yard signs, banners, vinyl, monument, or indoor lobby signs your church will benefit from any of these signs. Convenience is key when it comes to looking for a church to attend and by using informative signs you will help ease future members.

Do you think your trade show has everything it needs to stand out?
A great way to help boost your company or business is to attend a trade show. There are various ways to help your display stand out compared to others. Signs A La Carte is able to create all your signage needs to ensure you have all the tools you need to succeed.
You want your display to stand out.
Having an eye-catching banner could be the first thing that will attract the audience. A tall or distinctive display should do the trick. Make sure you have a colorful logo or accent to help promote your brand and grab the potential consumer.
Before you have an effective display designed, you first need to think about what you want your company or business to show. What are you looking to achieve within your trade show? Are you looking for leads? Brand awareness? Are you having a new product launch? Each of these things can create a different type of display. At first glance you should be able to understand what the display is targeting.
Signs A La Carte is able to help you create anything you would need for your trade show. From banners to table runners we can create your dream trade show display. We are able to put your logo on practically whatever you need to create an effective trade show. Signs A La Carte wants the best for your company.
There is not always a lot of time to grab someone’s attention at a display or trade show. The amount of people attending may vary from large too small. But, it is important that you stand out regardless.
What Signs A La carte can do
A fabric pop-up display is one of the first things that can grab attention. Since they are so tall theses are perfect for a large convention when there are many other suppliers there. The fabric makes the color vibrant and easy to read.
Another way to grab attention by being in sync. All of these displays were made by Signs A La Carte. We are more than just your regular sign company. We can make table runners as well as regular pop up displays. We want to brand your company in the best way possible. Having matching display items can make your trade show look very professional and well put together.
Do you have an outdoor event you want to promote yourself at? Signs A La Carte is able to create pop-up tents to have over your display. These are a great way for visitors to be able to see your display from all over the designated area.

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.
