Signs A La Carte ( West Chester-PA- sign company) will help you decide what storefront sign using 3-dimensional letters is best for your building.
As a business owner, you’ve probably asked yourself what type of sign is best for your storefront. Nowadays, three-dimensional letters are almost everywhere—they have greater visibility, a professional appearance, and excellent versatility and illumination. Channel letters and dimensional letters are the best options for three-dimensional letters.
Signs A La Carte, your West Chester, PA sign company, will help you decide what storefront sign is best for your building.
Channel letters are one of the most commonly requested signs for clothing stores, restaurants, jewelry stores, offices, supermarkets, and even schools. These building signs can be customized to represent any logo, message, or idea. The decorative sign is made of polycarbonate and aluminum and customized to fit your requirements, including color, size, letters and numbers, fonts, and symbols. The appearance of the sign is unlike a traditional lightbox. Channel letters are a modern and chic way to promote your brand.
The most important detail of channel letter signs is the illumination. They’re generally face-lit or reverse halo styles. Face-lit channel letters project light onto the front of the letters, while reverse halo-style letters project light out the back of the letters at night and are mounted on a raceway. Lighted signs attract your potential customers’ attention as they pass by your business.
Fortunately, if one letter is damaged, it’s easy to replace. Signs A La Carte doesn’t have to replace the entire sign, which can be pricey.
Unlike channel letters, dimensional letters are illuminated by an exterior source that can be added later if desired. These exterior signs can be made with a variety of materials such as acrylic, painted foam, acrylic-faced foam, formed plastic or metal letters (brushed or unbrushed). They’re installed directly into the building’s facade. Signs A La Carte will guide you through the process of creating an eye-catching sign for your business.
Another advantage of dimensional letters is their versatility. They can be used inside the building or incorporated into a monument sign or a post and panel sign.
What’s Best for My Business?
Want to attract attention to your sign at night? Channel letters are your best option. If your business doesn’t require light at night, dimensional letters would be a better choice. At Signs A La Carte, we can help you select and install your dream sign on the front of your building. Both signs are great for promoting your brand.
Still unsure which letters to choose? All photos on this page, taken from one of the last jobs we completed, show the difference between channel letters, dimensional letters and other jobs we can do.
If you’re a new business owner or want to update your existing exterior signage, we can work with you to create a sign that suits your needs. Call Signs A La Carte at 484-464-0111.

Signs A La Carte explains and answers commonly asked questions about Signs: price, wrap, type of signs...
As a full-service, custom sign company located in West Chester-PA-, Signs A La Carte answers many questions about window graphics, vehicle wraps, outdoor and indoor signs, and other types of signs. We’ve included a few of our most commonly asked questions below to give you a look into our process and what makes us different from other sign companies.
Why do you ask so many questions about my sign before we talk about price?
It isn’t easy to provide a price right away because all of our signs are custom. The price of an interior or exterior sign varies depending on several criteria:
Each of these parameters must be considered so we can provide an accurate quote.
How much do you really need to know about my vehicle before you wrap it?
Before processing your vehicle wrap, Signs A La Carte asks important questions about the type of vehicle you want to wrap (car, truck, trailer, plane, etc.). We can give you a quick estimate because we have thousands of templates with standard characteristics. However, we need to know the make, model, year, color, options, add-on equipment, and style of your vehicle first.
To optimize your message and increase brand awareness, Signs A La Carte discusses your goals to deliver the best solution that promotes your brand and generates business. We ask about your logo, website, tagline, offerings, phone number, photos, and more.
With this information, our designers will guide you through the design process, keeping your budget and your vehicle’s space limitations in mind. We can discuss various options including the vinyl color and finishes and the types of wrap that fit your budget.
These are a few types of wrap we offer:
Why is Signs A La Carte different from other companies?
Most of the time, we apply printed vinyl on a sign or vehicle. This is why our vinyl comes in the form of a quality adhesive that’s resistant to external elements like sun, rain, and wind. You have many color and finish options: matte, semi-gloss, gloss, brushed steel, carbon fiber, matte metallic, chrome, and even leather-like finishes.
Finally, our solvent-free printing process combines primary colors for a better-quality image. It allows us to reproduce images in solid color, high-resolution photographs, printing on various types of vinyl (transparent, block out) that we can apply on walls, windows, vehicles, acrylic, and PVC. Our prints come with a layer of film coating adapted to the material, if necessary, to guarantee incredible durability.

Are you the owner of a new commercial property like a restaurant, a medical office, a retail location, a shopping center or a real estate agency? Are you located near West Chester, PA?
If you answered yes, you need some outdoor signage. But what kind of sign do you need?
We, at Signs A La Carte, have a variety of materials to help you find the perfect sign for your brand.
In this post, you will find some examples of storefront signs that you probably see everyday. But which is right for you? Below you’ll see examples of signs that are either attached to the wall or perpendicular at the front facade like a rider sign.
The most exciting question you have to ask yourself is: Do you want your sign illuminated?
The benefit of an illuminated sign is that at night, customers will still be able to notice you in the dark and it can help them to remember your location during the day. We work with an electrician to install your illuminated sign -- and you can choose whether you want to use LED or neon lights.
Another option for an illuminated sign is having us create an acrylic sign in a case. Inside that case we would add lights and the entire sign would glow in the dark like this company, Unique Hearing Aid Solutions, chose.
Maybe you prefer illuminated letters! In this case, you need channel letters, which are generally made of acrylic faces that allow light to be projected through the letters in a multitude of colors. We do it all!
Not looking for an illuminated storefront sign? No problem. We also make PVC, wood, aluminum or stainless-steel panels.
To embellished them, we use different methods like printing, engraving, laser cutting, and painting. We also use colorful vinyl or can add material like raised metal, acrylic, backlit or plastic colorful letters. Signs A La Carte can customize your durable exterior signage with your unique specifications. We can even help with a colorful underlay or installing a spotlight underneath to keep your sign noticeable in the dark.
We also install letters directly on your storefront like Gus & Ruby Letterpress. The material we use are very durable and easy to install. The letters are cut and shaped into any font style you choose!
Here in West Chester, the most affordable storefront used is a called a “sign rider”. A sign rider is usually a smaller sign that accompanies a larger sign or graphic (similar to what you see in a real estate frames). Sign riders are usually placed either below or above (or both) the larger graphic in the frame. Additionally they are used on posts and even hang from iron or wooden hangers. The sign is attached perpendicular to your business. We attach your vinyl to wood or an aluminite sheet, with the information you need
Did you know that your location is on a specific zoning map? That means that you’re not exactly able to do whatever you want. You have to follow the directives from your city or township. Illuminated signs require a permit, not just the preexisting sign rider. You can simply replace sign riders with new information if you keep it the same size. But to make it bigger or change any other specifications to your outdoor signage, you need to check with your city or town -- and definitely your landlord.
Signs A La Carte can produce any sign you can dream up! Just come with your ideas (and permits lol) and we will bring your dreams to life.
We helped restaurant chain, Bango Bowls, open the doors on their 8th location in West Chester, PA
Signs A La Carte, your favorite sign company here in downtown West Chester, PA, was lucky enough to work with the health food restaurant: Bango Bowls on all of their signage.
Anthony and Katrina Sandstrom are opening their eighth location right here in West Chester as a company and they have six business partners who opened the Long Island stores as well. We feel so lucky to be working with them because number one, they are great to work with and number two, we got to eat their delish food! (We’re personally addicted to the poke bowl).
This chain offers incredible acai and pitaya bowls, poke bowls, oatmeal bowls, smoothies, cold brew coffee, and much more!
Anthony and Katrina asked us to do all their interior and exterior signs. They needed a sign for the front of the store, decals for windows and walls, and anything else you can imagine from menus to promo cards at the counter.
They had a lot of specifications and we needed to do it on time before the grand opening.
The sign out front is made with black plexiglass and white and green acrylic letters for the wording and the leaves. Signs A La Carte customized the black PVC with the exact shape and size that Katrina requested.
On the windows, we applied white vinyl cut letters. The vinyl has two great qualities, it will survive to the weather. It can get wet and will never lose stickiness and the sun will never fade it.
Above the entryway, we used a matte printed laminated vinyl for the restaurant’s name and logo. The final effect is perfect. The choice of the color is very important, with the contrast black and white with a touch of green. The restaurant’s name appears very chic!
For eye-catching wall menus, we created frames that “stand-off” from the wall. The standoffs go through the acrylic panels’ edges and attach right to the wall, leaving a small gap between the display and the wall. This created a sophisticated, high-quality look. We printed and laminated the vinyl menu and applied them over clear acrylic standoff. As you can see, the menu is easily readable because of the matte vinyl, which prevents too much reflection from the light.
For the wall graphic below, we printed on graphic film overlaminate. The quality of the picture is very important so that we do not see the pixels when we enlarge the photo.
It was a real pleasure to work with Anthony and Katrina. We have stopped by a few times since they opened and they always greet us with smiles! If you want to eat healthy in West Chester, please try this amazing place!

Signs A La Carte, your signs company in West Chester, PA, had the opportunity to work with Oriental Medicine of West Chester on 3 different projects:
After Margaret gave us the logo of Oriental Medicine of West Chester, as well as their specifications for the 3 signages, they asked Signs A La Carte to make a beautiful sign out of vinyl on their office door and also to use vinyl for their outdoor purposes signs. We gave them different options based on their requirements and we ended up with an agreement to make them three decorative, useful signs.
The first sign we made was for their office door. Before the sign, when you entered the facility where the office is located, it was not easy to identify where their workplace was located. Signs A La Carte had 2 options for them. One was of vinyl on an acrylic surface with transparent effect. The other was printed vinyl applied on an aluminum composite panel which is the option they chose. We printed and laminated their logo and the name of their establishment to the vinyl applied on an aluminum composite rectangle and we installed the new sign right next to the small window on the door. Now when patients come inside the facility, they know exactly which door to open.
There was a sign hanging in front of the building and attached to it, which Margaret and Greg asked us to update.
On the existing signboard, Signs A La Carte applied a weather resistant vinyl, and we printed their logo, their name and the number and name of the street of their facility.
The sign rider looks outstanding! It is legible from a reasonable distance because of the use of contrasting colors (red, black and white), and because of the size and the font of the letters. Here is some advice for you: if you have a business or you are rebranding, avoid italic, oblique, script, highly decorative, or other unusual forms letters, because fancy characters are difficult to see from the opposite side of the street. To be legible you need a straight font.
The last sign they needed was a new portable write-on sign. Signs A La Carte gave them the choice between chalk or white dry erase sidewalk. With the new technology and materials, it is now possible to print directly on these two composites which can be applied on both sides of a corrugated plastic yard sign. Margaret and her team opted for the white dry erase board.
We thank Oriental Medicine of West Chester for working with us. If you have concerns about your health and you would like to learn more about using oriental medicine, do not hesitate to call Oriental Medicine of West Chester: (610) 431-2008. Check out their website at omowc.com
