What is Metal Letter Signage?

Dimensional Metal Signage is great for any type of store or office you have. It looks great on any wall and can even be placed outside. Spaced out letters can even look better than a large sign depending on the area where you want your new signage to be located.
How we make metal letters
At Signs A La Carte we fabricate 2-D Brushed metal signage in various different ways. This all depends on where and how the letters are going to be mounted. We are able to cut almost any type of metal into any shape or size fit for you.
Once you have a design in mind we can discuss the best way to create your letters and what method we will use. If you do not have an idea in mind that is not a problem! Our expert design team is able to custom design a free proof for you to approve of before we go ahead and start working on your sign. At Signs A La Carte we can assure you, that you will get exactly what you are looking for.
What material can we make your sign out of?
We have many options to choose from when it comes to picking out your material. Like we mentioned before, the material may have an impact on how the sign will be installed.
● Aluminum – This is an easy and lightweight metal. It is very customizable, and we can add color to it too to makeit look more expensive.
● Brass –This material is popular for its resemblance to gold without the cost.
● Bronze – This is similar looking to brass in some ways, it also makes a common choice for outdoors.
● Stainless Steel – This is resistant to scratching, and wear and tear.
We have worked with The Mill to create their lobby signs. One is brushed aluminum with no paint and installed on a green (grass) wall, the second one is made of the same material, painted in black and installed on a wood wall.

Having signage that is visible for viewers from far away is very important while branding your new franchise.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Our team works hard every day to be known as the company that guarantees quality, well-manufactured products. We appreciate our customers for trusting us with their business. Meeting with them to present the many options they have is important to us.

Installing Channel Letters for the New Agway Storefront Sign, by Signs A La Carte- West Chester , PA-
Signs A La Carte provides and installs signs for a short and/or permanent period.
One day we received a message from a local business owner. His business was moving, and he needed a banner to say where the business was moving and one for the new shopping center and business location.
Signs A La Carte worked with Cory Mattia, owner of the West Chester Agway store, built in 1976 primarily as a farm and feed store. Agway recently moved from its Matlack Street location to the Commons of Thornbury near the Route 926/202 intersection. For his smallest facility, Mr. Mattia decided to focus on specific categories of products rather than being too diversified.
Agway was also renamed Agway Wild Birding Center. Mr. Mattia wanted customers to know the store was still open, but with a different name and location, so he decided to keep the brand and logo.
Installing channel letters on a building requires a permit from the township. Fortunately, everything went well with the permit, and Signs A La Carte created two large format banners: one for the pylon where the store was closing, and another where the store was opening.
We also added the business name to the monument sign at both entrances of the shopping center. In this shopping center, we replace the business name on the monument sign when a tenant leaves, using a plain green plaque until there’s a new tenant.
Raceway vs. Flush Mounted Signs
The difference between the two (raceway and flush) is the method of installation.
A raceway is a rectangular sign mounting structure that holds all wiring and electrical components for the letters. It generally requires three or four drill holes to mount this setup.
Flush mount setup requires between three and five holes in the facade for each letter. Our installers fish the wires through the holes before securing the individual elements.
Building owners usually prefer the raceway option because it does the least amount of damage to the facade.
A storefront sign can also be a lighted box, an unlit sign with dimensional letters, or a custom-made face with a business’s colors, design, and shape. Check out our website page to see a few examples of the storefront sign we’ve created.

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.

Explanation of The Process of Creating a Custom Monument Sign by Signs A La Carte- West Chester -PA-
Have you seen the beautiful shopping center monument sign in Limerick, PA? Signs A La Carte was the proud manufacturer and installer.
We handled every step in the process to draw attention to the new shopping center coming soon. From pieces of wood and electrical wire, we designed and mounted the illuminated monument.
Ever wonder how a monument sign is made? Below we’ve included the steps in the sign-making process, including design, fabrication and assembly, and installation.
Your monument sign will include both the actual signage and the masonry that helps support the sign’s base. You have options for each component. Business owners will often match their sign to the architecture of their building. Stone, aluminum, wood, acrylic, and other metals are the materials we most frequently use.
Before you get too far in the design process, it’s a good idea to check with your municipality to find out what your city code allows. If you are creating your first monument sign, you’ll be required to secure a permit for your sign.
Fabrication and Assembly
At Signs A La Carte, we have the in-house capabilities to execute and supervise each step in the fabrication and assembly process. This helps ensure that the sign we install at your business matches the specifications we agreed upon during the design phase. Fabrication begins once you’ve approved the design and are ready to move forward.
Mounting the Sign
Assuming all permits have been secured, it’s time to install your sign! Monument signs should be placed perpendicularly to the street. To help ensure your sign is easy to read, make sure you take shadows and sunlight into consideration when placing your sign. Signs A La Carte will guide you through the process. We have all of the tools and equipment needed to securely install your sign.
After the footer or foundation of the monument sign are prepared to receive the sign, we secure the metal frame of the sign to the footer. The last step is to slide the acrylic faces with names or phone numbers at their place it should be.
And voila! Your sign is installed and ready to attract visitors to your business.
Why Install or Refresh a Monument Sign?
Retailers spend a lot of money to be in high-traffic shopping malls. However, old, unattractive monument faces—or worse, no monument sign at all—are even more costly. Signs A La Carte fabricates and installs shopping mall signs to increase traffic and sales.
Many smart retailers are improving their signage for the new year! If you are looking for a new signage solution, Signs A La Carte can help you enhance your ideas or start from scratch. Don’t hesitate to contact us with questions about creating your monument sign or any kind of signs you may need.
Signs A La Carte- West Chester, PA- has a A Guide to Vinyl Signs to help you custom any kind of signs.
In a previous post, we answered some common questions we get asked as a full-service, custom sign company. Another question our customers ask: what does it mean when we say full service?
Signs A La Carte has a large printer that can print any type of vinyl and wallpaper we apply on various surfaces. Here is a list (not exhaustive) of the types of vinyl signs we can create.
Wall and Window Graphics
The printer uses primary colors to reproduce all pictures and designs for your project. The chart below represents the colors we can print.
Windows and walls are great surfaces for vinyl application—they are flat, and the space can be used to promote your name, your brand, your tagline, and your beautiful pictures.
At Signs A La Carte, we discuss ways to maximize blank space on your vehicle with the message you want to convey. We provide four options for advertising on your vehicle:
Prefer something removable? We create vehicle magnets! However, these magnetic stickers require extra care than vinyl wraps and must be regularly cleaned to prevent rust.
Monument and Dimensional Channel Letters
Maybe your business is in a business center and you want customers to recognize your business from a distance. You might need dimensional or illuminated letters. If your business center has no monument sign or pylon to indicate which businesses occupy the space, we can install a sign with your design. Signs A La Carte can also update your business name on the face of an existing monument sign or pylon.
Channel letters can help call attention to your building and business. We can also create other building signs to point to your location, including a post, sign rider, store front sign, and more.
Lobby and Interior Signs
When customers enter your building, their first impressions are key. Did they see your logo? The name on your desk? A directional sign? These little details are important for nice Lobby Sign and Interior Signs, and the Signs A La Carte team can help improve the visual experience for your customers. We can also create an ADA sign if needed.
Trade Show Display
Are you promoting your business at an event? You need a trade show display. Signs A La Carte can create a canopy, runner table, banner, roll-up banner, flags, posters, and more. These exhibition booth pieces show who you are, where you are located, and what you have to offer.
Signs A La Carte specializes in indoor and outdoor signs to showcase your business and attract more customers. Even if you don’t know exactly what you want, we can help! Just give us a call.
