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.

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.

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 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.
Do you have other questions we didn’t cover here? Signs A La Carte is a visual company that can work with you to create your custom sign. Give us a call and we’d be happy to answer your questions or get a project started for you!
Signs A La Carte replaces pylon sign faces in the West Chester Area.
Recently, Signs A La Carte has replaced 14 sign faces on pylons. You might be wondering: Why would you need to replace your pylon sign face?
These are three of the most common reasons we encounter:
All faces Signs A La Carte manufactures can be painted, digitally printed vinyl graphics, or flatbed printed . We can then insert them into your current lighted sign cabinet, so you don’t have to spend money purchasing a completely new business sign. Over the years, vinyl overlays, acrylic, and PVC have become better materials that are readily available.
Replacement of a Faded or Discolored Face
Sometimes the paint on your sign frame needs a refresh to restore its vibrancy. Over time, faces can become damaged by the weather. In Pennsylvania, our summers are hot and humid, and our winters are bitterly cold. Extreme weather causes the faces to crack, peel, and fade, and a white sign face can begin to look yellow.
Auto Haus worked with Signs A La Carte to renew their business appearance and give their sign an up-to-date look. Signs A La Carte removed the old faces of the pole sign and replaced them with two shiny new faces.
The new sign is more readable, with clearly outlined letters and numbers. Colors, type, and font gave Auto Haus a more professional look.
Brandywine Med Spa asked Signs A La Carte to refurbish a sign that belonged to an old restaurant. We kept the octagonal shape of the sign, applying the doctor’s name, phone number, and business name.
With this type of pylon, if the sign isn’t illuminated, there’s likely a problem with the electricity or weather has damaged the bulbs. This is what happened with this customer. When our installer replaced the faces, he changed the bulbs, and now the illuminated sign works perfectly.
New Business Name
Signs A La Carte also replaced 10 faces for the same restaurant branch. The proprietor bought a group of closed restaurants and opened them again at his new branch: Olive Tree. In this case, the pole was in good shape, and Signs A La Carte was simply able to install new faces by changing the large decal vinyl printing on the pylon.
