The main reason to use temporary signage is because it is flexible and functional. Sometimes the hassle of a regular sign is not worth it. In some cases you are not able to put holes in the wall where your business is. Temporary signage is a great way to avoid any permanent damage within your building. We created the signage that worked best for CoBi.
The Council on Brain Injury has been a nonprofit since 2007. We spoke with one of the founders of the organization. It started in memory of a business partner that lost his life to a brain tumor. We asked one of the founders why she chose to create CoBi, he said “I ran a local, for profit brain injury organization called ReMed and spent 32 years there, first as a therapist, then manager and my last 18 years as its CEO. I wanted to start a nonprofit to honor my business partner and to provide support to individuals with brain injury, their families and professionals in the field.”
CoBi has various events throughout the year to support friends and families who are struggling with a loved one who has a brain tumor. They’re main events are the Golf Tournament and the Award Luncheon, an educational conference for professionals every spring in Pittsburgh and then a variety of other educational programs and classes.
For their events we created some temporary signs including; A- Frame, a foam board with a durable cardboard easel back, a banner and yard signs.
The benefits of temporary signs
Whatever event you or your company is having temporary signage is always an option! At Signs A La Carte, we are able to help you design and create your very own custom signage. We want to ensure you have everything you need to make your event great.
We asked our friends at CoBi why they chose Signs A La Carte… Here’s what they had to say “ I am from West Chester and was looking for a small, local vendor that I can work with and I liked the atmosphere and flexibility that you offered me when I stopped in. The quality of your banners and signs was noticed by the person that used to organize these materials and I am hoping to spread the word of your quality.”

If you have thought about expanding your business you have come to the right place. At Signs A La Carte we want to see your small or large business expand with success. Franchising a business can be very stressful all the way down to the new signage. Many places look for consistent signage throughout each business location. At Signs A La Carte we specialize in creating a consistent look throughout everything we create.
How to gain attraction
When it comes to gaining attraction from passers-by, the best way to do so is by having a large sign that represents who you are. A well exposed sign can increase attraction by 50 times a month. Having signage that is visible for viewers from far away is very important while branding your new franchise. This will introduce new customers, as well as remind repeat customers of who you are and what your business has to offer.
Who we have worked with
We have worked with many companies in the past with building a franchise. Two of those companies were recent. Amazing lash and Mosquito Joe have been great clients of ours.
This past July we have worked with Mosquito Joe to create a new car wrap for them. We love their unique design and look forward to seeing their vehicle on the road
-Another amazing company we have worked with is Amazing Lash! We had a lot of projects to do with Amazing Lash. We love working with such motivated clients. Some of the projects included; A-frame sign, posters, window/door graphics, and car wrap.
We look forward to working with these two companies again and many more!
How to create your desired look
You want your franchise design to be noticed. With that being said choosing the correct font, color, and even layout is a very crucial step in the brainstorming process. At Signs A La Carte we are able to help you from start to finish. We want to make your idea come to life. Consistency is everything. It is important that a person is able to look at a franchise and immediately associate it with another one of your businesses.
Although consistency is important, we understand that different towns have different rules when it comes to signage. Many franchisers run into problems with certain restrictions on different townships or landlords. Having one sign company work with your franchise throughout all locations is a benefit in this case. Having a team that understands your needs is important for any franchise.

With business, companies, and even schools closing due to COVID-19 many accomplishments went unrecognized. Signs A La Carte wanted to do our part with helping the community.
Since high school and college seniors were not able to get the proper celebration they deserve, many parents and faculty have reached out to see what small gesture they could do to help make light of the current situation. At Signs A La Carte, we make custom signs, to fit the personal desire of the customer. Yard signs seemed like the perfect fit for the students of the community to be able to represent their school and themselves for this celebration.
We want to thank the mom’s who went out of their way to order from Signs A La Carte to make their loved one feel special. The orders first began when a customer of ours mentioned the sign she got from us on facebook. Her friends told their friends and BOOM we had hundreds of yard sign orders coming in. We are very grateful for the business during this current pandemic and even more thrilled that students are getting a little taste of what they deserve.
Each yard sign we create is different in its own unique way. They can be different sizes, have a different design, and can even be personalized. We want our customers to be as involved in the process as much as we are. If you have a design in mind we can make it! We make sure to pay attention to important details and colors. Each of the yard signs comes with stakes to put into the ground for convenience.
How we make yard signs:
We want this process to be simple and easy. To create a sign as soon as possible we take in account a few different things. If you send a file or image over to us we would love for it to be an Ai, ESP, or PDF. These files are always clean and sized/scaled accordingly. Pixelated images are the result of an inadequate file. A quality sign begins with quality resolution. Once we have the image we can then begin to collect ideas for your sign. Color, font, and size are all factors that have to be taken into consideration. We can even take logo’s or mascots from schools to add on to the yard sign. Now it is time for production.
Along with custom yard signs we also make lawn signs, banners, and flags. If you want to celebrate your loved one in a special way we want to help! Contact Signs A La Carte for a free quote on any sign you please. We are grateful to be a part of such a wonderful community especially during these uncertain times.
What kind of signs do you need to show that your shop is open? by Signs A La Carte - West Chester, PA-
During the pandemic period, whether we are in the red, yellow, or green zone, customers need to know if your business is open. A custom sign is a great idea to show if you are operating right now or when you will open your facility.
At Signs A La Carte, we work with you to make the right sign for you, whether you are a salon, a fitness center, a restaurant, or any other type of small business that deals with customers every day. To find the right sign for you, our team creates a sign custom with your brand, your name, your style and of course information the customer should know.
Just before we learned we had to close, Bernard Grogan, from Hill’s Quality Seafood asked us to do a banner for his business. He wants to attract customers passing by cars saying the store is open and they can take orders by phone. The delivery will be at the curbside. We sent him the proof of the banner, he accepted it, we printed and delivered in no time.
A few days later, he thanked us because the banner gave him new customers. We are very happy for him. To add to the good news, our company was accepted by the government to stay open under conditions. If he needs us for any kind of signs, he can come back, and that is what he did.
Following the rules of the government about the shutdown of the state, the essential living business could still operate, but in some cases, they need to have posters about the new employee rules. We printed the posters for our customers. They needed a new employee; we created yard signs for them to advertise. Hill’s Quality Seafood is a chain of 4 stores, 3 are in Delaware County and 1 in Chester County, their seafood is so fresh and delicious, especially their crab cakes. Do not hesitate to go and try.
Last week, he realized that he needed a sign to direct his customers to the parking lot when they came to get their seafood. We proposed to him, an A-frame with 2 posters.
Even after the covid-19 pandemic, they will be able to use the a-frame for another purpose. They will just have to change the poster. Something that Signs A La Carte can do easily.
You see, Signs A La Carte can make temporary signs to help little enterprises stay in business. We would like to mention we can do more signs than yard signs, posters, large banners and A-frame to advertise your company, such as flags or clings.
Many companies underestimate the importance of customized signage. Your business must stand out to be different from a competitor. Your business must have its own identity.
Here is what Bernard Grogan had to say about working with Signs A La Carte: “Working with Christian, Veronique, & Signs a la Carte was absolutely crucial to being able to communicate to the public that our small business was still open during the initial COVID-19 shutdown - we didn’t realize the full value of a banner until we started to see how many new customers we were getting. At first, we were just trying to stay open by serving some of our longtime customers, but our business actually grew and a big part of that is due to the service of Signs a la Carte. As we had to change our business operations on the fly, Signs a la Carte was there with everything we needed to make it work. When we needed to hire, we turned to Signs a la Carte instead of spending hundreds of dollars on an online job listing. We needed signs to help our customers understand our new system for pickup - we had the signs the very same day."
"From the start, working with Signs a la Carte has been wonderful. Incredibly quick turnaround, very reasonable prices, personable service, and quality products that they stand behind - they are exactly the kind of business we want to support and work with. And it’s not just a matter of simply wanting to support another small, local, family owned business....but you literally will not find better service or more fair prices elsewhere, especially from national chains or franchises.”
If you buy all your signage from companies that have ready-made templates, your personal style may not be reflected as you expect. It is very difficult to have an aesthetic consistent with this approach. But if your sign is just personalized for you, you can be sure that all your signage appropriately represents your brand. Call Signs A La Carte, we create custom signs for your open business.
Regardless of what type of company or business you are, chances are that you need a sign during this unfortunate time.
While we are facing this pandemic it is important for your company to stay afloat. To do this most effectively a large sign would be ideal to have in front of your company or business. At Signs A La Carte we are able to provide you with the signage of your choice. From banners, signs, shields and more we are able to work with you for you to have the custom sign that your business needs.
We understand the impact signs can make on a business and we are here to help. When choosing the right sign for your business or company there are many elements to think about. First you want to decide what you are looking for whether that may be marketing, safe work practices, we are open signs, or potentially we are closed signs. You want to show that your company or business is taking action and doing everything you can to ensure customers, clients or even patients are able to have a less stressful time.
It is important to stay healthy and positive during this time. At Signs A La Carte we are doing all we can to ensure your safety. We are sanitizing and making sure that when your sign comes to you, you will not have worry.
Health care signage & directional signs
During this health related emergency it is important that health care providers are getting the care they need. We want patients, doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers to be able to feel comfortable at their place of employment. Eye catching signage in the healthcare center will help promote the message.
Signage is important to direct people where to go. Locations may have changed due to the pandemic. Signage can indicate the new location and assist the people on where they should be. Directional signs are most effective when they are large and eye-catching.
Safety Shield and Poster
Plexiglass Shields will provide less contact with others. We can create signs that can be “warning” that may be displayed throughout the area. Impactful signage is important for everyone to ensure proper safety and lessen the further spreading of the current virus.
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”. Short and direct wording will work best for customers to understand best. Whatever you may want on your sign, Signs A La Carte is able to do it.
Contact Signs A La Carte today for a free quote on your sign or shield. We understand the current pandemic is hard and we want to make sure that the signage process is a bit easier for you.

Why should your business use banners?
Having a large banner out front of your business can show the customers or by passers the new rules they are following. This Texas Roadhouse is only doing curbside pickup or carry out. Signs A La Carte
can help you with the design.
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.
salc will print for you the yard signs that you really want.
An A-frame is a portable sign that sponsors messages temporarily on sidewalks, paved areas or grass. The install is easy, you just have to open it up and place it wherever you would like. The high quality sign frame is reusable. All you have to do is get another poster to put inside for any occasion. The signs are easy to transport. You can also use them inside perhaps for a trade show.
Once COVID-19 is over your business will be able to reuse the frame for another graphic on the poster. By doing so, you will be saving money on advertising and will be able to continue to use you’re a-Frame sign.
