Right now, the educational environment is changing and evolving. Why don't you use effective school and classroom signs to motivate students and help make the space they work healthy .
As we approach the upcoming school year there are many new factors to consider. With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing, new actions in classrooms must be taken for safety precautions. From a young age all the way through college there have always been signs in a classroom whether you have noticed them or not. These signs are a useful source to direct you where to go, give safety information, or even just for decoration.
At Signs A La Carte we want everyone to be as safe as possible. Our recommendation for classroom signage is wall graphics. Wall graphics are an easy cost effective way to decorate your classroom.
The different types of wall graphics
The different types of wall graphics
Full wall wraps- will cover the entire wall
Partial wall wraps- can cover a half of the wall
Die-cut wall decals and lettering- are good fo adding wording or small graphics to the wall
Exterior walls can also be wrapped or even brick or block surfaces. If you are unsure if we can wrap or decal a part of your classroom wall, let us know and we will help walk you through the process.
The most important thing with signage in a classroom is that the signs you choose are not too overwhelming or distracting for the students. The signs or wall graphics need to be attractive enough so that the students and other passers-by notice them so that they can serve their purpose. On the other hand, you don’t wall all the attention to be on the signs, this can be distracting for students.
Here are some ideas on how to have the perfect sign
With the current pandemic going on, we want everyone to be as healthy as possible. At Signs A La Carte we are working hard to ensure everyone is getting their proper safety signage. With the upcoming school year approaching we want schools, parents, and students to have a peace of mind when walking into the building. Signage is the best way to explain to students what needs to happen and the new rules within the building.

If you have thought about expanding your business you have come to the right place. At Signs A La Carte we want to see your small or large business expand with success. Franchising a business can be very stressful all the way down to the new signage. Many places look for consistent signage throughout each business location. At Signs A La Carte we specialize in creating a consistent look throughout everything we create.
How to gain attraction
When it comes to gaining attraction from passers-by, the best way to do so is by having a large sign that represents who you are. A well exposed sign can increase attraction by 50 times a month. Having signage that is visible for viewers from far away is very important while branding your new franchise. This will introduce new customers, as well as remind repeat customers of who you are and what your business has to offer.
Who we have worked with
We have worked with many companies in the past with building a franchise. Two of those companies were recent. Amazing lash and Mosquito Joe have been great clients of ours.
This past July we have worked with Mosquito Joe to create a new car wrap for them. We love their unique design and look forward to seeing their vehicle on the road
-Another amazing company we have worked with is Amazing Lash! We had a lot of projects to do with Amazing Lash. We love working with such motivated clients. Some of the projects included; A-frame sign, posters, window/door graphics, and car wrap.
We look forward to working with these two companies again and many more!
How to create your desired look
You want your franchise design to be noticed. With that being said choosing the correct font, color, and even layout is a very crucial step in the brainstorming process. At Signs A La Carte we are able to help you from start to finish. We want to make your idea come to life. Consistency is everything. It is important that a person is able to look at a franchise and immediately associate it with another one of your businesses.
Although consistency is important, we understand that different towns have different rules when it comes to signage. Many franchisers run into problems with certain restrictions on different townships or landlords. Having one sign company work with your franchise throughout all locations is a benefit in this case. Having a team that understands your needs is important for any franchise.

A directory sign can help keep your visitors or clients on the right track. You want the process of your business to run smoothly. Directory signs will help keep the traffic flow easy and smooth. In a larger building directory signs are a must. If there are various levels, it is a good idea to have a large sign in the front of the building explaining where each destination is. Perhaps it can even be in the lobby. Along with that, there should be many signs within the multi-story building to direct you to where you need to be. There are many different types of directory signs; let's take a look at them.
THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF DIRECTORIES:
Main lobby: These main lobby signs could be the first sign the visitor sees when they walk into the building. You want to leave a good first impression, with a well put together directory sign, this will ensure that the guest will have a notable time.
Elevator: Another great idea would be to add a directory sign in the elevators of the building. Many people get nervous in the elevator for different reasons. Some may be heading up to a job interview, others could just be claustrophobic. If the nerves kick in, there is a chance they may have already forgotten what they read on the lobby directory sign. Having the extra sign in the elevator will ensure that the guest will be more confident in where they are going.
Upper level: Once you exit the elevator on to the correct floor destination, you then need to know where to turn. Having a large wall near the elevator will make a perfect spot for the upper floor level directory. Even simple office names or numbers will make all the difference when a visitor is looking for the correct spot.
Internal: Having these directories will keep the visitors from being lost in a large building. It is best there is no wandering and each person can easily access where they want to be in a short period of time.
Another essential item you need for your business is a lobby sign. Lobby signs are great for any purpose. Along with directory signs, they could be used for direction or they could be just for a warm welcome to the business. A lobby sign is the first thing a visitor sees when they walk into the business so it is important to make a great first impression. We make all kinds of lobby signs to fit the needs of your business. If you have a design in mind, we can custom make it for you! At Signs A La Carte we want to work with you to create the signs you want to see everyday.

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.

Light LED Signs- are signs comprised of light emitting diodes (LED's) that shine bright and allow you to draw customers into your place of business. These bright lights allow your messages to be seen at night and during the day with ease.
Monument sign- a low-profile freestanding sign, supported by a structural base or other solid structural features other than support poles and may contain signage on more than one side.
Flag Signs- Because all the signs described above require a permit from the township, you can indicate your presence by the flags….. A flag is a great way to attract by passes outside of your business. Tall standing signs are visible from further away enabling a larger audience.

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.

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!
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.
