During these unforeseeable times it is hard for many businesses to stay afloat. Sadly we had to remove the channel letters for parcel & print due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

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.

Where does your new business begin?
Outside! To engage and bring in customers you need an outdoor sign or signs to attract them. An outdoor sign is a big purchase for any company or business. It is a highly visible statement you want by passers to see. There are many ways to make your unique sign stand out.
Dimensional Signs- adds an element of depth to a flat sign's height and width. The shape, shadows and shading of 3D letters, logos and graphics catch the eye like no two-dimensional flat sign can.
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.
Location is a key component when starting your business. You want as many people as possible to be able to see your business. Signs are the main way you will attract customers. Especially if you are near a busy road or highway, tall standing signs will stand out and make by passers notice you.
Once you have secured the customers inside the next step is indoor signs!
You may want the inside of your business to match the outside. Signs A La Carte is able to give you exactly what you need to create a space you love.
Choosing the type of indoor sign, you want is the next step into customizing your new space. No need to be bland when you could have an exciting space to be in.
Wall Graphics- can add a pop on your plain wall. Using a mission statement or a positive quote can create a welcoming space.
Window Graphics- inside a building, you may find different business, having your name and open hours on the entrance door can be a good idea.
Dimensional letters/ signs- are 3D letters made that are mounted individually to the wall. They can either be raised on clear spacers or mounted flush with the wall.
Mounted signs on standoff- are designed to be mounted with specialized hardware, which consists of a barrel, cap, and wall screw.

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.

Signs A La Carte can definitively help with your signage's needs.
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.
Ready to Create Custom Office Signage?
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.
Cedar wood, Plywood, Aluminum, HDU, MDO are used to fabricate Post and Panel Signs.
Styles of Post and Panel Signs
Post and panel signs are available in a variety of styles and configurations, as well as a variety of price points depending on your budget. They can be personalized with decorative caps and poles and custom-shaped panels. While the most common material used for the poles in our area is wood, you can also have poles made from PVC or aluminum.
If the customer doesn’t want paint on the post, we use cedar wood. It’s a natural moth repellent that’s also weather resistant. If the customer wants a post with a specific color, we’ll prime, sand, and paint the plywood.
Between the pole, we install a face that’s usually made with three millimeter or six millimeter MAX-metal. This substrate is durable and works well in all types of weather.
However, sometimes customers require higher-end materials for more permanent signs. In this case, we work on sandblasted wood that is more expensive, but will last for decades. Signs A La Carte can propose other substrates like high density urethane (HDU), plywood, and medium density overlay (MDO).
Types of Sign Materials and Substrates
HBU is insect- and rot-resistant. It’s also waterproof and unaffected by changing temperatures. Unlike cedar, HDU is readily available, stable, carves easily, and paints beautifully. It also looks just like wood when painted, only much lighter.
Plywood is made with thin layers of wood, interspersed with layers of special paper. Since it’s not weather resistant, plywood will eventually rot after years of exposure.
MDO is a cheaper solution. However, its lifespan is usually less than five years, and it deteriorates more quickly than other materials.
Other Custom Solutions
If you’re looking for a simple, yet decorative solution, or something a little fancier, we can carve the wood for long-term use. For temporary use, the most economic method is printing the graphics on high-performance vinyl and directly applying them on both sides of the substrate’s surface for maximum visibility. We can also create an appealing look by adding dimensional acrylic letters or logos to post and panel signs.
Sometimes when a customer wants to change their sign, we inspect it and find that the poles aren’t damaged—they just need a good coat of paint. Even when poles are made with high-quality material, factors like weather and pollution can still deteriorate the sign. A coat of paint can work wonders.
We Have Your Sign Needs Covered
Whether you’re looking for a residential entrance sign, a development directional sign, a business park tenant sign, a lobby or reception display, a church reader board, or golf course signage, Signs A La Carte can provide a solution that will exceed your expectations and leave a lasting impression.

Creating New Exterior Signs and a Lobby Sign for Brandywine Med Spa by Signs A La Carte -West Chester, PA-
Signs A La Carte installed exterior signs and lobby signs at Brandywine Med Spa in Kenneth Square.
One year ago, Dr. Tariq and Uzma Quraishi contacted Signs A La Carte for help rebranding signage for their new business facility. Dr. Uzma Quraishi has been providing general medical care and cosmetic treatments in the Kennett Square area since 2004. At Brandywine Med Spa, she offers the latest innovations in cosmetic medicine.
Our part of the project included creating new exterior signs and a lobby sign. First, Dr. Quraishi wanted to change out the pylon in front of the building. Signs A La Carte refurbished the sign that had belonged to a previous restaurant. We kept the octagonal shape of the sign, cutting two new acrylic faces and applying a translucid black cut vinyl with the doctor’s name, phone number, and business name. This type of vinyl allows light to go through.
Now for the story of the two freezer doors outside the building. Initially the couple discussed a landscape. Our designer sent them a few proofs, but they were still undecided. One day, our designer found some photos and arranged them in a new proof. The proof was approved, but then winter arrived. If temperatures are below freezing, it’s impossible to install vinyl outdoors. We had to wait for the weather to get warmer.
Finally, after a spring warm up, we were able to install the high-quality, laminated, large-format printing on the two freezer doors. The photos have a lasting impact on customers—when we talk about other businesses in the area, we mention these photos and automatically, people know where to go.
Dr. Tariq and Uzma Quraishi were great to work with! Despite the weather challenges, they were very understanding. As we know, the weather isn’t the only challenge we sometimes face when installing signs, and we were just lucky we had such patient clients. The finished Brandywine Med Spa sign is classy and chic.
