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.

Do you want your business to be as cool as the red carpet?
Step and repeat banners began with the Academy Awards. It's likely you’ve seen your favorite celebrity photographed with a step and repeat backdrop. Adding step and repeat banners makes any event look more impressive because of where it originated from. To this day step and repeat backdrops are featured in the most massive events in the world.
These photos are then taken and put on various platforms of social media to enhance the advertising for the company. By doing this, the company is being promoted and the brand is shining through.
Here are some tips that will help you brand your business in a fun and different way…
Step and repeat is a design that is made generally of continuous logos of a sponsor or organization.
A step and repeat backdrop is not just for celebrities. Signs A La Carte can make them for any event. It is reusable for any charity functions, chamber of commerce meetings, networking or sporting events, and a great investment to have for your company or business. By having this, you are able to thank your customers and sponsors. No matter how big or small your banner is you will be able to transport it very easily. You can install it yourself in less than 10 minutes. The ease of the set up will create less stress for your whole event.
Branding is one of the most important parts of your company or business. If you put on events or even attend trade shows, a step and repeat wall or backdrop is a must. It will pay for itself by the opportunities you have to put it to use. Signs A La Carte has the best pricing around.
If your event is outside we can handle that too!
Our prints are able to handle any kind of weather: rain, wind, sun you name it. The ink will not run on your step and repeat banner. Our products will be able to do the job you want!
Even if you don’t have an upcoming event, step and repeat can come in all different ways. Some companies choose to have their logo all over their office walls. This makes for a creative environment and a fun office space; it is no longer just an empty wall. Recently two companies have asked for a step and repeat wall.

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.

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.
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.

How Frosted and Etched Vinyl Graphics Give Your Business More Privacy by Signs A La Carte - West Chester, PA-
Frosted or etched adhesive vinyl graphics keep privacy in conference rooms and executive offices or represent the corporate brand temperately, on sliding doors and glass partitions.
The terms frosted and etched glass come from the type of glass work that existed before vinyl. Etched and frosted glass are generic terms for decorative, translucent glass that obscures visibility and also diffuses light. The difference between the two is in their meaning.
Etching is the process of altering the surface of the glass to create a decorative effect. Frosting changes the surface of the glass from transparent to translucent to create an opaque, cloudy appearance. This is usually achieved by acid-etching, sometimes called ‘French embossing,’ one of the oldest decorative glass techniques. Thousands of years ago, craftsmen discovered that heating fluorite, a dark green mineral, produced hydrofluoric acid. When applied to glass, it eroded the top layer of glass and left a frosted look.
Nowadays to get the effect of frosted glass without using a dangerous chemical, we use vinyl, which is applied on glass. This product is a three-mil, high-quality PVC film with a soft and constant light transmission that prevents reflection. The clear and permanent adhesive is widely appropriate for use on plotter cutting systems. It can be used indoors and outdoors on windows and glass doors.
Frosted and etched vinyl graphics maintain the privacy of conference rooms and executive offices. They can also help display a corporate brand on sliding doors and glass partitions.
Case Study: A. Duie Pyle
For A. Duie Pyle, the Northeast’s premier transportation and logistics provider, etched glass vinyl created privacy in the company’s conference room. Employees using the conference room benefitted from the natural light the vinyl allowed to pass into the room, while still maintaining privacy from the public hallway. Signs A La Carte also cut A. Duie Pyle’s logo out of the vinyl to create a branded wall.
When we worked with International Ministries, also known as the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society, we used frosted vinyl to make the entrance door more decorative. The logo is trimmed like a step and repeat banner. With a strip of etched glass at eye-level, it’s an attractive and sophisticated addition to the business’s ambiance.
River Avenue Digital
Additionally, frosted or etched adhesive vinyl graphics maintain privacy from the outside. River Avenue Digital came to Signs A La Carte for this type of vinyl to create a layer of privacy between the office and passerbys on the street. It gives the office a high-class, professional look.
Kids Clubhouse of the Mainline
Etched and frosted vinyl is also incredibly useful when working with kids. Signs A La Carte installed frosted vinyl on the windows at Kids Clubhouse of the Mainline, a daycare on demand. During the day, sunlight can pass through the vinyl, but the kids and employees aren’t distracted by what’s happening outside.
Whether you need an upscale look for your storefront or interior windows or you want to incorporate frosted glass vinyl for a custom logo or signboard, Signs A La Carte will exceed your expectations by applying attractive and versatile material. Give us a call if you want to install privacy window film at your business!
