We engineered and installed a back -it exterior sign Wilmington.
When owning your own business there are many things that come into play. There are a lot of questions you have to ask yourself on a daily basis. One of those many questions being “what type of signage should I be using?” The answer to that can be considered in many different ways. Why should you use a channel letter for your business? Channel letter signs create a number of benefits to your business including attraction customers from a far.
What are channel letters?
Channel letters are exterior signs that you put on the outside of your business. Usually these are 3D and spell out the company’s name. These can be lit up from multiple angles to give a clean and appealing look. These large signs will draw attention to potential customers.
We received a request for a back lit exterior sign for their second facility in Wilmington by the general manager. Christian went to meet on site to discuss with him. After the discussion, we engineered the sign and we sent a proof with different sizes and materials after they agreed on one, we put the sign in production. After checking the wires to verify that each piece of the sign will light up, we can program the installation, that requires a scissor lift because the sign is 14 feet in the air attached to the brick wall.
How channel letters are made
In design, channel letters and cabinet signs are closely related. We use lightweight aluminum for the bodies of the lettering. Doing so has the advantage of not adding too much weight to your building’s façade. Typically, the fronts consist of polycarbonate that features your business’ chosen colors. From there, customization makes the channel letters relevant to your company.
There are a few options to think about when creating and designing your future channel letters. The font, lighting and overall look are something you should consider.
The first step is to select the font that best communicates your branding message. This font is usually the appearance you have chosen for your website, but it does not have to be identical if you prefer a different display. If you’re interested in creating a whole new look for your business we are able to help you choose the font that will work best for your building.
The next step to consider is lighting. You have three different illumination options. Front-lit letters allow the light to escape through the polycarbonate fronts for an emphasized color presentation. Back-lit letters feature a closed front but let the light escape through the back, which results in a halo effect. A third option is a combination of the two. Unlit channel letters are another possibility. If you are unsure what lighting option will work best for you Signs A La Carte is able to assure you that we will help you every step of the way.
Lastly, our installer can mount the letters directly to your façade. If access to the back of your wall is not possible, or if the building’s owner specifies a different installation method, we suggest the raceway mount. Either way Signs A La Carte will handle all your installation needs.

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.

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.

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.

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.
