Signs A La Carte manufactured and installed Channel Letters on a building for ReminderMedia.
Channel Letters for ReminderMedia
ReminderMedia, a sales and marketing company that creates custom publications for small business professionals, recently changed offices in King of Prussia. They asked Signs A La Carte to help design their signs, which included 35-foot channel letters on the building wall and an updated post sign at the entrance.
Channel letter storefront signs are like cabinet signs. Each letter, logo, or shape is separate and forms part of the same sign. They’re built on a long-lasting aluminum frame to resist rust and prevent other weather-related damage. A piece of polycarbonate is cut at the exact shape to fit the aluminum frame. These types of signs allow for customization of size, font, color, and shape, and they can also be illuminated. The three-dimensional signs can be front-lit or back-lit, which creates a halo around the letters.
Signs A La Carte's team began with a site survey, determining where the signs would be installed and what was behind the wall. The sign installers needed to know what kind of drill and screws to bring so they could be prepared with the right materials to fit the project.
Before we got started on the installation, we contacted the landlord and township to ensure we were following zoning regulations. A permit is often required on these types of projects. This prevents the business owner from having to remove the sign in the future because it violates regulations. Since we were mounting the sign on the second floor of the building, we needed a bucket truck. The sign was on a raceway—it required fewer holes in the facade that could damage the wall.
After we completed the steps above, we designed the sign and sent the proof to the customer. Once it was approved, we manufactured each piece. Then it was time for the install. We carefully monitored the weather forecast—on a windy day, the installers have a more difficult time keeping their work space steady.
During the installation, many ReminderMedia employees came outside to watch. A 35-foot panel sign installation isn’t something you get to see every day!

Signs A La Carte helps businesses increase brand visibility by customizing LED signs with company’s font, colors, and logo.
Do you want to impress your current customers and drive traffic to your business? Try using modern light emitting diodes (LED) technology on your signs. LED signs can be customized with your company’s font, colors, and logo. Plus, potential customers will pay more attention to your business with a brand-new LED sign.
Here are some advantages to having LED signage.
Custom-made LED signage from Signs A La Carte is manufactured to your specifications. You choose the size, color, shape, and other details of your sign.
LED signs have a longer life and are designed by section, which means they’re easy to replace when necessary.
Using LED is better for the environment. You help minimize pollution by putting fewer fluorescent bulbs and traditional neon signage in the landfill, and you might even see reduced energy costs! Did you know you can upgrade your old neon or bulb signs to LED?
LED signs are bright by day and by night. These illuminated signs are one of your most valuable marketing tools for making your business stand out.
One thing all LED signs have in common is their ability to be installed indoors and outdoors.
Ready to see an LED sign in action? Take a look at what Signs A La Carte did for the store front at PromMiss Dresses. Channel letters are illuminated by LED signs. In addition to its use for retail storefronts and businesses with late-night hours, the illuminated exterior sign can also be used for awning signs, monument signs, and parking area signs.
Since LED signs provide vibrant light, the lights installed on the edge of the sign are powerful enough to add quality and brightness, even if you have an opaque sign. Take this FPA lobby sign, for example.
LED signage can make a great addition to your business. Its indoor and outdoor versatility increases your business’s visual appeal and sends the right message to your customers.

Signs A La Carte worked with A. Duie Pyle, the Northeast's premier transportation and logistics provider in order to renovate all their inside signs at the headquarter located in West Chester.
You know those big white and orange trucks you see on the road? The company is called A. Duie Pyle. They’re the Northeast’s premier transportation and logistics provider.
The company’s business headquarters in West Chester asked Signs A La Carte to renovate their indoor signage. We printed and manufactured their graphic designs, and we installed new signs inside the building, including in the reception hall and hallway.
To illustrate A. Duie Pyle’s success, the company decided to tell a story on a wall.
Signs A La Carte applied the company’s historic timeline in the hallway. The wall is covered by printed vinyl with graphics that represent important company dates and photos, from the start of the company to present-day operations. This hallway mural is both an art piece and a historic archive.
Adding a Branded Element of Privacy
The company had a large conference room that needed privacy film and Signs A La Carte used etched vinyl. On translucent vinyl, the company logo was trimmed to brand the space while also giving meeting attendees privacy when discussing projects. Even though the glass window was covered by vinyl, the room is still illuminated, and light can pass through the glass and vinyl.
In the meeting room, you’ll find a sign that represents the company’s five integrated supply chain solutions in orange and black, their official colors. The sign is made with printing vinyl applied on translucent acrylic and attached by standoffs on an aluminum brushed surface.
The Finished Product
Once the project was completed, A. Duie Pyle’s team and their customers had a better understanding of the company’s history and how it evolved from the early 20s to today.
Since installing the signs, we’ve heard great things—the company loved the timeline and illuminated LED frame. It’s certainly a treatment you don’t see everywhere! Thank you to A. Duie Pyle for working with us on this exciting project.

Designing a Custom Sign for Hope Brain and Body Recovery Center By Signs A La Carte- West Chester, PA-
Signs A La Carte designed a Custom Sign for Hope Brain and Body Recovery Center. We printed, manufactured and installed a lobby sign and window graphics.
When Dr. Joseph Schneider opened his new recovery center and offices in Chadds Ford, Hope: Brain and Body Recovery Center, he needed a new lobby sign and window graphics.
Dr. Joe and his team work with patients recovering from cognitive losses, emotional imbalances, and loss of physical function from concussions, traumatic brain injuries, dementia, autism, strokes, and other neurological conditions. They provide rehabilitation and therapeutic care to stimulate and strengthen the brain.
Signs A La Carte came to Hope Brain and Body Recovery Center’s new office to understand their signage needs. Dr. Joe knew exactly what he wanted in a sign:
Unfortunately, the old sign was still in place, and Signs A La Carte had two options—cover it or ask the landlord to remove the sign and repaint the wall.
Signs A La Carte decided to cover the old sign with the new lobby sign attached with standoffs. Eventually, the landlord removed the old sign and repainted the wall. Dr. Joe loves having the lobby sign mounted on the wall with standoffs. We decided to apply grey vinyl on the back of an acrylic face, and on the front, the picture and white cut lettering. The great thing about this process is that the sign appears to be a 3D image.
Dr. Joe was ecstatic when he saw the lobby sign and doors. He even prefers the employee-only door. As a sign owner, it’s a great feeling when you see your customer happy—it makes your day! We loved meeting Dr. Joe and his team and hearing about all the great work they do for their patients, both adults and children.

Signs A La Carte created more than 60 elegant building signs for Drexelbrook Catering using mostly brushed aluminum and black acrylic materials.
Drexelbrook Special Event Center hosts a variety of events, from boardrooms to ballrooms, corporate conferences to weddings, and everything in between. They assist clients with their catering, design, and planning needs so their event guests can enjoy themselves and have a great time.
CEO Domenick Savino, CPCE decided to renovate all signs inside the building to make them more elegant and modern. Signs A La Carte was invited to tour the building and see the signs that needed to be changed and updated. Existing signs were black or gold, and they felt outdated. After sending several proofs back and forth with the CEO, we designed, manufactured, and installed more than 60 signs in the event center.
Drexelbrook wanted to use their existing logo and add it to all signs. Signs A La Carte created the sign template to be used throughout the facility from scratch using the teal and white logo. Most of the directory signs were 3D with reverse brushed aluminum material and a black acrylic face. On top of the frame, we added the cut-out logo made from a white circle acrylic with UV printed graphic.
Typically, with this type of mock up, we provide ADA signs, directional and directory signs, and name plaques for boardrooms. Directional and directory signs with one name have black applique letters on the first surface. Directional signs with many directions have black text vinyl on the first surface. Frames are mounted to the wall with standoffs, which are made from brushed aluminum to match the identification signs.
When we toured the building to find out exactly where the signs would be installed, we suggested a vinyl application for the elevator doors. We sent the CEO a proof of what this would look like, and he agreed with our recommendation. After seeing the beautiful elevator doors, the owner decided the fire extinguishers also needed a new look. Throughout the building, gold covers were transformed into a beautiful palette of teal, black, gray, and white.
All embossed aluminum wall sculptures give the building an elegant style. Signs A La Carte enjoyed working with Drexelbrook and appreciated their trust as we updated the building signs.

Signs A La Carte ( West Chester-PA- sign company) will help you decide what storefront sign using 3-dimensional letters is best for your building.
As a business owner, you’ve probably asked yourself what type of sign is best for your storefront. Nowadays, three-dimensional letters are almost everywhere—they have greater visibility, a professional appearance, and excellent versatility and illumination. Channel letters and dimensional letters are the best options for three-dimensional letters.
Signs A La Carte, your West Chester, PA sign company, will help you decide what storefront sign is best for your building.
Channel letters are one of the most commonly requested signs for clothing stores, restaurants, jewelry stores, offices, supermarkets, and even schools. These building signs can be customized to represent any logo, message, or idea. The decorative sign is made of polycarbonate and aluminum and customized to fit your requirements, including color, size, letters and numbers, fonts, and symbols. The appearance of the sign is unlike a traditional lightbox. Channel letters are a modern and chic way to promote your brand.
The most important detail of channel letter signs is the illumination. They’re generally face-lit or reverse halo styles. Face-lit channel letters project light onto the front of the letters, while reverse halo-style letters project light out the back of the letters at night and are mounted on a raceway. Lighted signs attract your potential customers’ attention as they pass by your business.
Fortunately, if one letter is damaged, it’s easy to replace. Signs A La Carte doesn’t have to replace the entire sign, which can be pricey.
Unlike channel letters, dimensional letters are illuminated by an exterior source that can be added later if desired. These exterior signs can be made with a variety of materials such as acrylic, painted foam, acrylic-faced foam, formed plastic or metal letters (brushed or unbrushed). They’re installed directly into the building’s facade. Signs A La Carte will guide you through the process of creating an eye-catching sign for your business.
Another advantage of dimensional letters is their versatility. They can be used inside the building or incorporated into a monument sign or a post and panel sign.
What’s Best for My Business?
Want to attract attention to your sign at night? Channel letters are your best option. If your business doesn’t require light at night, dimensional letters would be a better choice. At Signs A La Carte, we can help you select and install your dream sign on the front of your building. Both signs are great for promoting your brand.
Still unsure which letters to choose? All photos on this page, taken from one of the last jobs we completed, show the difference between channel letters, dimensional letters and other jobs we can do.
If you’re a new business owner or want to update your existing exterior signage, we can work with you to create a sign that suits your needs. Call Signs A La Carte at 484-464-0111.

Explanation of The Process of Creating a Custom Monument Sign by Signs A La Carte- West Chester -PA-
Have you seen the beautiful shopping center monument sign in Limerick, PA? Signs A La Carte was the proud manufacturer and installer.
We handled every step in the process to draw attention to the new shopping center coming soon. From pieces of wood and electrical wire, we designed and mounted the illuminated monument.
Ever wonder how a monument sign is made? Below we’ve included the steps in the sign-making process, including design, fabrication and assembly, and installation.
Your monument sign will include both the actual signage and the masonry that helps support the sign’s base. You have options for each component. Business owners will often match their sign to the architecture of their building. Stone, aluminum, wood, acrylic, and other metals are the materials we most frequently use.
Before you get too far in the design process, it’s a good idea to check with your municipality to find out what your city code allows. If you are creating your first monument sign, you’ll be required to secure a permit for your sign.
Fabrication and Assembly
At Signs A La Carte, we have the in-house capabilities to execute and supervise each step in the fabrication and assembly process. This helps ensure that the sign we install at your business matches the specifications we agreed upon during the design phase. Fabrication begins once you’ve approved the design and are ready to move forward.
Mounting the Sign
Assuming all permits have been secured, it’s time to install your sign! Monument signs should be placed perpendicularly to the street. To help ensure your sign is easy to read, make sure you take shadows and sunlight into consideration when placing your sign. Signs A La Carte will guide you through the process. We have all of the tools and equipment needed to securely install your sign.
After the footer or foundation of the monument sign are prepared to receive the sign, we secure the metal frame of the sign to the footer. The last step is to slide the acrylic faces with names or phone numbers at their place it should be.
And voila! Your sign is installed and ready to attract visitors to your business.
Why Install or Refresh a Monument Sign?
Retailers spend a lot of money to be in high-traffic shopping malls. However, old, unattractive monument faces—or worse, no monument sign at all—are even more costly. Signs A La Carte fabricates and installs shopping mall signs to increase traffic and sales.
Many smart retailers are improving their signage for the new year! If you are looking for a new signage solution, Signs A La Carte can help you enhance your ideas or start from scratch. Don’t hesitate to contact us with questions about creating your monument sign or any kind of signs you may need.
Signs A La Carte- West Chester, PA- has a A Guide to Vinyl Signs to help you custom any kind of signs.
In a previous post, we answered some common questions we get asked as a full-service, custom sign company. Another question our customers ask: what does it mean when we say full service?
Signs A La Carte has a large printer that can print any type of vinyl and wallpaper we apply on various surfaces. Here is a list (not exhaustive) of the types of vinyl signs we can create.
Wall and Window Graphics
The printer uses primary colors to reproduce all pictures and designs for your project. The chart below represents the colors we can print.
Windows and walls are great surfaces for vinyl application—they are flat, and the space can be used to promote your name, your brand, your tagline, and your beautiful pictures.
At Signs A La Carte, we discuss ways to maximize blank space on your vehicle with the message you want to convey. We provide four options for advertising on your vehicle:
Prefer something removable? We create vehicle magnets! However, these magnetic stickers require extra care than vinyl wraps and must be regularly cleaned to prevent rust.
Monument and Dimensional Channel Letters
Maybe your business is in a business center and you want customers to recognize your business from a distance. You might need dimensional or illuminated letters. If your business center has no monument sign or pylon to indicate which businesses occupy the space, we can install a sign with your design. Signs A La Carte can also update your business name on the face of an existing monument sign or pylon.
Channel letters can help call attention to your building and business. We can also create other building signs to point to your location, including a post, sign rider, store front sign, and more.
Lobby and Interior Signs
When customers enter your building, their first impressions are key. Did they see your logo? The name on your desk? A directional sign? These little details are important for nice Lobby Sign and Interior Signs, and the Signs A La Carte team can help improve the visual experience for your customers. We can also create an ADA sign if needed.
Trade Show Display
Are you promoting your business at an event? You need a trade show display. Signs A La Carte can create a canopy, runner table, banner, roll-up banner, flags, posters, and more. These exhibition booth pieces show who you are, where you are located, and what you have to offer.
Signs A La Carte specializes in indoor and outdoor signs to showcase your business and attract more customers. Even if you don’t know exactly what you want, we can help! Just give us a call.
