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.
