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.

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.

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.
