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.

Do you want your business to be as cool as the red carpet?
Step and repeat banners began with the Academy Awards. It's likely you’ve seen your favorite celebrity photographed with a step and repeat backdrop. Adding step and repeat banners makes any event look more impressive because of where it originated from. To this day step and repeat backdrops are featured in the most massive events in the world.
These photos are then taken and put on various platforms of social media to enhance the advertising for the company. By doing this, the company is being promoted and the brand is shining through.
Here are some tips that will help you brand your business in a fun and different way…
Step and repeat is a design that is made generally of continuous logos of a sponsor or organization.
A step and repeat backdrop is not just for celebrities. Signs A La Carte can make them for any event. It is reusable for any charity functions, chamber of commerce meetings, networking or sporting events, and a great investment to have for your company or business. By having this, you are able to thank your customers and sponsors. No matter how big or small your banner is you will be able to transport it very easily. You can install it yourself in less than 10 minutes. The ease of the set up will create less stress for your whole event.
Branding is one of the most important parts of your company or business. If you put on events or even attend trade shows, a step and repeat wall or backdrop is a must. It will pay for itself by the opportunities you have to put it to use. Signs A La Carte has the best pricing around.
If your event is outside we can handle that too!
Our prints are able to handle any kind of weather: rain, wind, sun you name it. The ink will not run on your step and repeat banner. Our products will be able to do the job you want!
Even if you don’t have an upcoming event, step and repeat can come in all different ways. Some companies choose to have their logo all over their office walls. This makes for a creative environment and a fun office space; it is no longer just an empty wall. Recently two companies have asked for a step and repeat wall.
If you are interested in creating a better brand for your company or business, check out Signs A La Carte for a quote on your step and repeat banner, wall or backdrop. We would be happy to help you brand yourself the way you deserve, in style.

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.

You want your display to stand out.
Having an eye-catching banner could be the first thing that will attract the audience. A tall or distinctive display should do the trick. Make sure you have a colorful logo or accent to help promote your brand and grab the potential consumer.
Before you have an effective display designed, you first need to think about what you want your company or business to show. What are you looking to achieve within your trade show?

There is not always a lot of time to grab someone’s attention at a display or trade show. The amount of people attending may vary from large too small. But, it is important that you stand out regardless.
What Signs A La carte can do
A fabric pop-up display is one of the first things that can grab attention. Since they are so tall theses are perfect for a large convention when there are many other suppliers there. The fabric makes the color vibrant and easy to read.
Another way to grab attention by being in sync. All of these displays were made by Signs A La Carte. We are more than just your regular sign company. We can make table runners as well as regular pop up displays. We want to brand your company in the best way possible.

Look at the surface you have on your trailer, don’t you think advertising your business on the square footage could be a good idea?
If you look at surveys, they say that one vehicle wrap can generate between 30,000 – 80,000 impressions per day. Advertising for fleet vehicles increases name recognition 15 times more than other advertising media. Mobile advertising reaches consumers not exposed to newspapers, radio and television. Here is a great article explaining all these details https://www.bigpicturegraphics.com/car-advertising-statistics/
Advertise your business with Vehicle Wraps.
Our team from Signs A La Carte discuss with you 4 options we offer such as: full vehicle wraps, half vehicle wraps or cut letters & graphics that will fit your budget.
To wrap your vehicle, we print any color on a mat, gloss or reflective high-quality products from 3M and Avery. Vinyl are laminated to be able to withstand moisture or rain, color change due to the sun, and are not damaged by debris that is left on the road. Our Graphtec machine cut letters and shapes in the adhesive vinyl perfectly.
Per our conversation, Signs A La Carte will better understand your goal and will deliver the best solution that will promote your brand and generate business. We will talk about logo, website, tagline, list of offerings, phone number and graphics to optimize the space usage of your trailer.
When the picture in your mind becomes reality
A great example of vehicle graphics is the last trailer we did for Neufer Lawn Care. Matthew Neufer came to our store and told us what he hoped to see on his trailer. He wanted to have the design of his tee shirt with lettering on 2 sides. His goal is to show on site, when he works, his brand and what he does. We talk about the color as well. He sent us a high-quality file of the logo and business name, and the words he wanted to put on the trailer. When we print the file with our digital printer, there won’t be any pixels and the picture will have a clean and perfect rendering. We sent him a proof and he came back to us with ideas of how this could be improved. We changed what was on the proof to answer his requests, the color and location of words on the 2 sides.
We really appreciate working with someone who knows exactly what he wants for his design.
If you need someone to take care of your garden, Matt is a very professional person, you can see all the jobs he did on his Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/neuferlawncare/
If a company (not only a landscaping company, of course!) has multiple trailers, we can duplicate easily the first we have done, because we are consistency in printing and cutting. As we already have the design, the colors and measurements, all the trailers will look the same with the same graphic. If the vehicle is not the same model, we will adapt everything in order to have your brand be recognized on the road and catch attention. That’s what we call fleet management.
Would you consider wrapping your trailer with vinyl for a real investment? Would you like to know more about the products and services that can benefit your business? Contact Signs A La Carte today and we will help you schedule a free consultation!
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.
If you want to rebrand your business and need a new interior or exterior sign, contact Signs A La Carte. We’d love to help!
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!
