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.

Restaurant and food delivery
As you may know, many restaurants are closed and only open for pick up or delivery. Well this may be the case for some restaurants many are not open at all. Your business should have a sign out front explaining what your current hours are. An example of this may be “we are still open Monday- Friday 10am- 6pm pick up only”.

Outdoors banners can reach a large number of eyes making large impressions on passers by. Placing your banner near the busy side of your business will help engage a larger audience.
Banners are the go-to when you are unsure of what type of sign to get for your business. Banners are printed much faster than any other sign. They are the easier choice because they do not need to be professionally installed. Banners are durable and long lasting, the weather proof material can last for a long period.
2 other type of sign that is easy to install:
Yard Signs are a temporary outdoor display placed on a street-facing lawn or elsewhere on a property to communicate information of any kind to the public.
A lawn sign also can be put out front of any business to share with customers their current updates on the COVID-19 situation. Having the businesses new rules on the sign will make it safe and easy for customers to be able to read from a distance.
Yard signs increase awareness of your business and services to the community. They are a great way to engage with your community while promoting your business.

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.

A Vinyl Vehicle Wrap and Outdoor Signages for a State Farm Agent by Signs A La Carte -West Chester, PA-
Signs A La Carte applied Reflective vinyl on vehicle and renew some signs for State Farm.
Signs A La Carte recently worked on a fun project for Chris Madonna, a State Farm agent in West Chester, PA. After purchasing a Smart car, Chris wanted to get the car wrapped for his business. He knew a vinyl vehicle wrap is a cost-effective tool for generating brand awareness, sales, and business growth.
We proposed the idea of using reflective vinyl instead of regular vinyl. Though the price per square foot for 3M™ Scotchlite™ Removable Reflective Graphic Films was higher, the more vibrant, 24/7 exposure with reflective vinyl was a critical advantage. Reflective film provides better slideability, air release, and removability for easier, faster, bubble-free installations and removal. With heat removal, reflective vinyl leaves little or no adhesive residue.
Signs A La Carte gave Chris a mock-up of what his car would look like with a wrap, and he loved how it brought the graphic to life. To protect the vinyl, we applied a clear laminate to shield it from fading, scratches, and road debris.
Chris Madonna really loves the new design of his car. He is so happy that his business name is visible day and night.
When Chris dropped off his car, he discovered we can do anything with vinyl, like building signs, directory signs, any kinf of signs to promote your brand indoor and outdoor. In addition to the vehicle wrap, Chris also needed to update his business hours and change the post panel in front of his office. We removed the old signs and replaced them with new signs.
As you can see here, we replaced the vinyl on the business hours sign and updated it with Chris’s new hours.
To manufacture the post sign, we cut a medium density overlay (MDO) panel. This is a type of material produced with a high-quality, thermosetting resin-impregnated fiber surface bonded to one or both sides under heat and pressure. The sign’s shape has a half-oval at the top, which can hold one-third of the logo.
Signs A La Carte applied a red and white printed vinyl cover with a laminate and then installed it on the post.
Testimonial from Chris Madonna: Thanks guys, as always great work, and done quickly. Call them when you need a new or better look.
Not only can vinyl be used on cars, but it can also be used for signs and building graphics to give brands and promotions greater visibility. The material can easily be printed on a large, eco-friendly printer. Unlike paint, which requires greater patience to apply because of the level of detail, vinyl lasts longer and is easier to apply.
Chris Madonna is a great Signs A La Carte customer who educates his clients about all types of insurance, including auto insurance, motorcycle insurance, home insurance, renters insurance, life insurance, business insurance, and more. If you need help with your insurance needs, don’t hesitate to contact Chris at 610-353-7171.

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.

Long-lasting and precise construction, directional and directory signs that meet the needs of any business
When a site is under construction, signage is important. It shows which company is working on the site or which business is under construction. When the building is complete, signs that direct people through the building are also imperative. And don’t forget about the builder’s vehicles—builders with their name and contact info on the side of their vehicles are more likely to get inquiries from people with similar projects.
Construction sites are an ideal setting for making your brand visible to the public. Using high-quality materials and color matching, Signs A La Carte can customize your sign project, brining your creative vision to life and getting your brand noticed.
We’ve already completed several projects for commercial builders and property managers. Take a look at a few of our examples below.
A Logo and Lettering for Hazley Builders
Thanks to the new graphics on their vehicles, Hazley Builders can grab attention with a unique design that represents their brand and includes their logo, company name, and website. Whether they’re on the road, on a sales call, or parked in front of your business, the company gets noticed.
Signs A La Carte offers various types of wraps for fleet management, including half-wrap or full-wrap vehicle graphics. Since we print all graphics on our digital printer, we provide the same color and high-resolution graphics every time you need a new vehicle decal.
Post Signs for Spire
Signs A La Carte manufactured two types of post signs for Spire. One is made with 6” x 6” x 10’ wood posts, and the hanging sign has a panel made of 96” by 16” MDO. The other is made with 4” by 4” x 5’ wood posts. Between the posts, the panel will be made of MDO. On all signs, we’ll flush their logo customized with a specific red acrylic.
Spire will install the posts on their construction sites so if someone is interested in their project, they’ll know Spire is doing the work.
Directional, Directory Signs, and ADA Signs for Drexelbrook Catering
Signs A La Carte designed and manufactured 3D signs with different layers of material for the interior building at Drexelbrook Catering. The base is a brushed aluminum material with a black acrylic face. On top of the frame, we added the cut-out logo in a whiite acrylic circle with UV printed graphics. We adhered a small brushed aluminum plate with black textured vinyl. Frames are mounted to the wall with standoffs made from brushed aluminum to match the identification signs. The building’s luxurious appearance makes visitors want to return to the space.

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.
