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.

Creating New Exterior Signs and a Lobby Sign for Brandywine Med Spa by Signs A La Carte -West Chester, PA-
Signs A La Carte installed exterior signs and lobby signs at Brandywine Med Spa in Kenneth Square.
One year ago, Dr. Tariq and Uzma Quraishi contacted Signs A La Carte for help rebranding signage for their new business facility. Dr. Uzma Quraishi has been providing general medical care and cosmetic treatments in the Kennett Square area since 2004. At Brandywine Med Spa, she offers the latest innovations in cosmetic medicine.
Our part of the project included creating new exterior signs and a lobby sign. First, Dr. Quraishi wanted to change out the pylon in front of the building. Signs A La Carte refurbished the sign that had belonged to a previous restaurant. We kept the octagonal shape of the sign, cutting two new acrylic faces and applying a translucid black cut vinyl with the doctor’s name, phone number, and business name. This type of vinyl allows light to go through.
Now for the story of the two freezer doors outside the building. Initially the couple discussed a landscape. Our designer sent them a few proofs, but they were still undecided. One day, our designer found some photos and arranged them in a new proof. The proof was approved, but then winter arrived. If temperatures are below freezing, it’s impossible to install vinyl outdoors. We had to wait for the weather to get warmer.
Finally, after a spring warm up, we were able to install the high-quality, laminated, large-format printing on the two freezer doors. The photos have a lasting impact on customers—when we talk about other businesses in the area, we mention these photos and automatically, people know where to go.
Dr. Tariq and Uzma Quraishi were great to work with! Despite the weather challenges, they were very understanding. As we know, the weather isn’t the only challenge we sometimes face when installing signs, and we were just lucky we had such patient clients. The finished Brandywine Med Spa sign is classy and chic.

Signs A La Carte installed an Awning and Window Graphics for Kids' Clubhouse of the Mainline.
When Angela Bruno moved to Pennsylvania from California, she discovered that a drop-off daycare didn’t exist in the area. She set out to start her own daycare, and once she found a facility, she contacted Signs A La Carte to create her signage. But first she needed to get her sign installation approved with the building landlord and the township—when you open a business, it’s important to follow the rules in the area.
Angela wanted to have window graphics and a lighted awning installed over the door. This would allow parents to stay sheltered from the elements when their children leave the daycare. The light is also important, especially during the winter months when it gets dark early, so parents and their children can feel safe.
Signs A La Carte helped Angela get approvals from the township. To do this, we needed to have everything ready to submit for the project, including measurements, colors, and the exact location of the signage. After the township issued their approval and Angela signed off on the details of her custom signs, we started production. The biggest component was the awning.
Creating an Awning
On the awning fabric, we applied white-cut lettering that resists harsh weather. Angela wanted the awning to protect parents from the rain while they’re waiting to pick up their kids. Since Angela couldn’t put her business name on the building, she decided to place it on the awning instead. This helped her visually market her daycare—white lettering on dark green fabric is great for grabbing attention. The system of aluminum frames also provides a clean look and allows the fabric to be tightly stretched across the frame.
Adding a Custom Floor Mat
Finally, Angela asked Signs A La Carte to create a floor mat with her logo. The mat matched both the interior and exterior signage, as well as the vinyl on the door.
Electric cars with advertisement.
Check out this amazing project that we finished right before Memorial Day!
The idea was to have 3 electric cars that can carry passengers free of the island to 7 miles. The cost will be paid by advertising on the car. For 7 Miles Free Ride, we engineered, designed and manufactured a rooftop with LED Acrylic panel sides lighting at night as well as the front oval attached to the car. We printed and applied all the graphics around the car.

Different options to custom your future lobby sign.
Adding a sign to your business can make a big difference. You want to make sure you find a sign that fits your facility space in a location where your company’s name, logo, and tagline are visible.
A lobby sign usually stands on the wall, and it’s the first thing your customers will see when they enter your office or store. With so many font, color, size, and lighting options, you can create a unique sign that stands out—and at Signs A La Carte, we can help!
Types of Lobby Signs
What types of lobby signs can you choose from? Here are some options for customizing your future lobby signage:
For the acrylic base, you can have it corner rounded or squared, border flat or beveled, lighted or non-lighted. The stand-off mounting gives your sign a dimensional look.
At Signs A La Carte, our signs are manufactured in house, and vinyl is printed on a large format, latex water-based, eco friendly printer.
You have a variety of options to promote your brand with a lobby sign. If you think you need more than a lobby sign, Signs A La Carte can provide other signage including window and wall graphics, door decals, or sign stands.
We’ll help you find the right solution for your budget that best promotes your brand and matches the decor and aesthetic of your store or office. Whether you’re moving to a new building, opening a new location, or simply improving or rebranding your current location, give us a call! Our design team can work from your existing brand or create a custom concept for you. Each project begins with an initial consultation to provide the best options for your specifications.

Vinyl is useful for any type of wrap, sometimes it is difficult to wrap objects.
Sometimes wrapping an object is more cost effective than painting it, especially when you’re working with a complicated design. It’s easier to correct a shape before printing than it is to repaint a wall. Vinyl wrapping provides endless creative and branding opportunities. But it’s sometimes hard to wrap certain items because of the complexity of the elements.
Here are three important things Signs A La Carte considers for each vinyl project.
Even though vinyl can handle deformity, sometimes when there’s too much distortion, the adhesive behind the vinyl cracks. Curved shapes and spheres are almost impossible to wrap. The Signs A La Carte team has to use cast vinyl for these shapes.
Wrapping a bike? Consider painting it instead. With all of the curves on the bike’s frame, a vinyl wrap will take significantly longer to complete.
Our customers frequently ask if we can refurbish their signs. Our response: “We’ll see what we can do!” Vinyl must stick perfectly on the surface of the sign to look good and withstand the elements. We ask our customers to bring us their sign or send us a photo so we know exactly what we’re working with.
When Signs A La Carte does mural wraps, we bring our adhesion test kit to test the wall and determine which vinyl to use. Vinyl doesn’t work well on wood if the surface is rough and untreated. This also applies to rusted metal.
Vinyl is fabricated to be durable and endure deformation. Temperature can negatively impact adhesion to a surface and shorten the lifespan of the vinyl. Rapidly changing temperatures or temperatures that are extremely hot or cold are not good for vinyl—the finish will peel and crack. We don’t recommend installing outdoor wraps in below-freezing temperatures because the vinyl adhesive won’t stick.
We Can Wrap Anything with Patience
No matter what you want to wrap, Signs A La Carte can do it. However, preparing the area and applying the vinyl might take longer than usual.
Examples of some of the less-common objects we’ve wrapped include:
Vinyl wraps provide an economical way to decorate surfaces, and they’re easily removable. From walls and posters to storefront signs, Signs A La Carte can wrap anything with a smooth surface. We can also protect your vehicle against extreme elements and road debris while making your brand visible to potential customers.

Signs A La Carte helps businesses increase brand visibility by customizing LED signs with company’s font, colors, and logo.
Do you want to impress your current customers and drive traffic to your business? Try using modern light emitting diodes (LED) technology on your signs. LED signs can be customized with your company’s font, colors, and logo. Plus, potential customers will pay more attention to your business with a brand-new LED sign.
Here are some advantages to having LED signage.
Custom-made LED signage from Signs A La Carte is manufactured to your specifications. You choose the size, color, shape, and other details of your sign.
LED signs have a longer life and are designed by section, which means they’re easy to replace when necessary.
Using LED is better for the environment. You help minimize pollution by putting fewer fluorescent bulbs and traditional neon signage in the landfill, and you might even see reduced energy costs! Did you know you can upgrade your old neon or bulb signs to LED?
LED signs are bright by day and by night. These illuminated signs are one of your most valuable marketing tools for making your business stand out.
One thing all LED signs have in common is their ability to be installed indoors and outdoors.
Ready to see an LED sign in action? Take a look at what Signs A La Carte did for the store front at PromMiss Dresses. Channel letters are illuminated by LED signs. In addition to its use for retail storefronts and businesses with late-night hours, the illuminated exterior sign can also be used for awning signs, monument signs, and parking area signs.
Since LED signs provide vibrant light, the lights installed on the edge of the sign are powerful enough to add quality and brightness, even if you have an opaque sign. Take this FPA lobby sign, for example.
LED signage can make a great addition to your business. Its indoor and outdoor versatility increases your business’s visual appeal and sends the right message to your customers.

Signs A La Carte worked with A. Duie Pyle, the Northeast's premier transportation and logistics provider in order to renovate all their inside signs at the headquarter located in West Chester.
You know those big white and orange trucks you see on the road? The company is called A. Duie Pyle. They’re the Northeast’s premier transportation and logistics provider.
The company’s business headquarters in West Chester asked Signs A La Carte to renovate their indoor signage. We printed and manufactured their graphic designs, and we installed new signs inside the building, including in the reception hall and hallway.
To illustrate A. Duie Pyle’s success, the company decided to tell a story on a wall.
Signs A La Carte applied the company’s historic timeline in the hallway. The wall is covered by printed vinyl with graphics that represent important company dates and photos, from the start of the company to present-day operations. This hallway mural is both an art piece and a historic archive.
Adding a Branded Element of Privacy
The company had a large conference room that needed privacy film and Signs A La Carte used etched vinyl. On translucent vinyl, the company logo was trimmed to brand the space while also giving meeting attendees privacy when discussing projects. Even though the glass window was covered by vinyl, the room is still illuminated, and light can pass through the glass and vinyl.
In the meeting room, you’ll find a sign that represents the company’s five integrated supply chain solutions in orange and black, their official colors. The sign is made with printing vinyl applied on translucent acrylic and attached by standoffs on an aluminum brushed surface.
The Finished Product
Once the project was completed, A. Duie Pyle’s team and their customers had a better understanding of the company’s history and how it evolved from the early 20s to today.
Since installing the signs, we’ve heard great things—the company loved the timeline and illuminated LED frame. It’s certainly a treatment you don’t see everywhere! Thank you to A. Duie Pyle for working with us on this exciting project.

Designing a Custom Sign for Hope Brain and Body Recovery Center By Signs A La Carte- West Chester, PA-
Signs A La Carte designed a Custom Sign for Hope Brain and Body Recovery Center. We printed, manufactured and installed a lobby sign and window graphics.
When Dr. Joseph Schneider opened his new recovery center and offices in Chadds Ford, Hope: Brain and Body Recovery Center, he needed a new lobby sign and window graphics.
Dr. Joe and his team work with patients recovering from cognitive losses, emotional imbalances, and loss of physical function from concussions, traumatic brain injuries, dementia, autism, strokes, and other neurological conditions. They provide rehabilitation and therapeutic care to stimulate and strengthen the brain.
Signs A La Carte came to Hope Brain and Body Recovery Center’s new office to understand their signage needs. Dr. Joe knew exactly what he wanted in a sign:
Unfortunately, the old sign was still in place, and Signs A La Carte had two options—cover it or ask the landlord to remove the sign and repaint the wall.
Signs A La Carte decided to cover the old sign with the new lobby sign attached with standoffs. Eventually, the landlord removed the old sign and repainted the wall. Dr. Joe loves having the lobby sign mounted on the wall with standoffs. We decided to apply grey vinyl on the back of an acrylic face, and on the front, the picture and white cut lettering. The great thing about this process is that the sign appears to be a 3D image.
Dr. Joe was ecstatic when he saw the lobby sign and doors. He even prefers the employee-only door. As a sign owner, it’s a great feeling when you see your customer happy—it makes your day! We loved meeting Dr. Joe and his team and hearing about all the great work they do for their patients, both adults and children.

Learn more about how Signs A La Carte can use wall and window graphics to promote your business and make it more inviting to potential customers.
Did you know your walls and windows are excellent places to customize your business? As a business owner, you have a large area where you can display information about your company or simply personalize it with an eye-catching graphic. You could also cover your wall entirely or partially with pre-cut vinyl.
Prefer to only partially cover your wall? We can apply vinyl-cut letters, numbers, or shapes. Your monochrome or multi-color design is cut with the plotter. Not only will your custom vinyl decorate your space, but it will also promote your business anywhere inside your building.
A new product on the market gives you another option for covering your walls: wallpaper. It’s more ecological than vinyl, and to stick it on the wall, we just wet the back surface with water. Since it’s printed on a large printer, your wall will be covered with four-foot wide bands of paper. Plus, the product can be stretched—we aren’t afraid to rip it when we apply it!
If your business has windows, you can cover them with custom vinyl graphics. Cut lettering is the most frequently used decal. It can display your store hours, product lines, and of course, your business name.
You might also have conference rooms surrounded by windows. Maybe you want privacy, but you also want natural light to pass through. Signs A La Carte has exactly what you need. You can’t see through etched vinyl, but photons can still cross the translucent surface. Best of all, it looks great!
On a car, monochrome cut lettering is good for promoting your business economically, and it’s also a long-term investment. Include your name, phone number, logo, and website, and when drivers see your car on the road, they’ll think, “Hey, I need to give this place a call!”
