As you may know, having great quality signage is important for a business’s success. If you are a property manager you know just how important it is to showcase your company for who you are and what you do. Without having just the right kind of signage this can give off negative effects. Having a clean, simple sign will go a long way for your business. Here are a few key take-aways:
They need to be visible
When designing your custom sign with Signs A La Carte, we want to make sure that your sign is legible. Together we will choose the font, style, color, and lettering. We want to make sure it is large enough to see from far away but also not too overbearing. For property management signs it is extremely important that the sign is readable from a distance.
Keep it simple
When you work without an expert design team, we make sure that you are going to get a sign you love. With that being said it is also important to keep your sign clean and simple. The sign should maintain the look of your brand but also do its job. If you want it to show customers or clients where to go, make sure it has a direct message. Having too much detail on a sign can make it look messy or hard to follow.
Quality and Installation
Because these signs are typically meant for the outdoors the quality of them is incredibly important. You need something that is waterproof and will last for a long time. At Signs A La Carte we have various types of materials for you to choose from. Not only should it be durable but your sign should also look good too. Once the sign is created, it is time for our installation team to get to work. Our professionals will come to your location to secure your brand new custom sign properly. This is to ensure it will withhold all types of weather and to make sure it will last for a long time. Unlike other sign companies, we work with you from start to finish.
At Signs A La Carte we offer many different types of signage. We are willing to work with you so that you can have your dream signage stress free. Is it time to start communicating your brand to your customers? From start to finish we want to ensure you are getting exactly what you are paying for.

If you are rebranding your business, don’t forget to get new vehicle letters! – by Signs A La Carte West Chester, PA-
If it is time for your company or business to have a fresh start you have come to the right place. You want to stand out from your competition so it is important that you are keeping up with your own brand. Staying up to date with the current trends will keep customers remembering who you are and they will come back. Not only is it important that you have proper signage but it is also important to keep up with your vehicle letters and wraps. When it comes to rebranding your business, having all your signage converted at the same time makes for a clean look. At Signs A La Carte we can do it all.
We recently worked with Hazley Builder to create new vehicle letters. They decided it was time to rebrand and Signs A La Carte was happy to help! First we have a consultation to see exactly what they are looking for. We discuss the type of vehicle it will be going on. We also have to see what size, color, and font they want to use. If you previously have new signage that you may want us to match we can do that as well!
Once we have the design down of what you are looking for it is time for us to get to manufacturing your new vehicle letters. Our expert design team is able to customize your letters with our digital system so we can show you exactly what we have created for you before we print them. Once we get your approval we will create the letters. After everything has been made it is time for our installation team to take over. They make sure your custom letters will be applied to your vehicle correctly so that they will be long lasting and durable. Not to mention our vehicle letters are also weather poof, so nothing will tear them down. At Signs A La Carte we can also make multiples of your design. If you have one or one hundred vehicles we can create your custom letters for all.

Each and every time a person walks into your restaurant the first thing they will notice is the atmosphere. Making a long lasting impression will keep customers coming back for more. Having custom raised letters at the front of your restaurant will ensure that customers will know who you are. Do you have multiple locations? You are in luck! At Signs A La Carte we do customization and can create multiple versions of the same sign for each of your franchises. This is what we did with ‘Santucci”, a restaurant located in Downingtown. They came to us asking for multiple dimensional letter signage versions of their logo.
How we create the design
e The Santucci "seal design" is made with an acrylic cut to the shape and painted with the same color of the letters to really make it pop. The laminated printed logo was applied on the acrylic. The edge of the seal and logo are matching. The letters are acrylic 3/8’’ painted. What makes working with Signs A La Carte so unique, is that we take pride in our service. We want to help you get your restaurant or business looking exactly the way you envision it. If you have a sign in mind that you want us to replicate, we have got your covered!
A custom sign can be tailored to add to your establishment's aesthetic, and increase the statement that your business brand makes. Having the dimensional letter signage at the front of your store will catch the customer’s eye from the start. If you have multiple locations the signage will stick in the people’s minds and brand your image well. You have the opportunity to have an elegant, classic, cohesive sign with brilliant color combinations. You can even offer your lobby a more modern look by adding backlit signage to your dimensional letters. Having a slogan on your sign is always a great way to advertise yourself in a stylized font. The options are limitless and with our expert design team you are in the right hands. Do not forget once the sign is created we have the right team to install it. We want your sign to last as long as your restaurant so we make sure it is properly installed by our excellent team.

Do you think your trade show has everything it needs to stand out?
A great way to help boost your company or business is to attend a trade show. There are various ways to help your display stand out compared to others. Signs A La Carte is able to create all your signage needs to ensure you have all the tools you need to succeed.
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? Are you looking for leads? Brand awareness? Are you having a new product launch? Each of these things can create a different type of display. At first glance you should be able to understand what the display is targeting.
Signs A La Carte is able to help you create anything you would need for your trade show. From banners to table runners we can create your dream trade show display. We are able to put your logo on practically whatever you need to create an effective trade show. Signs A La Carte wants the best for your company.
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. Having matching display items can make your trade show look very professional and well put together.
Do you have an outdoor event you want to promote yourself at? Signs A La Carte is able to create pop-up tents to have over your display. These are a great way for visitors to be able to see your display from all over the designated area.

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.
Moving Your Business to a New Location?
From temporary to permanent signs, Signs A La Carte will guide you through the steps you need to take to get your name in front of your business. Looking for interior signs? Take a look at the types of indoor office signage we can create for your business!
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 Custom Window and Wall Decals for Tilted Axes of West Chester by Signs A La Carte -West Chester, PA-
Signs A La Carte printed and installed wall and windows graphics at Tilted Axes in West Chester.
Signs A La Carte designed all the signs for our neighboring business, Tilted Axes of West Chester, an axe-throwing and BYOB food and drink venue. Patrons throw axes in a safe line for two hours while enjoying time with friends and getting a great workout. Each group has a coach who explains the rules and teaches you how to throw the axes. You can also play darts and tic-tac-toe, listen to music, and buy pizzas from a food truck.
Owners Jason and Jake started from scratch with an empty building. With the help of friends and family, they built everything, from the tables to the soundproofing walls. When Jason came to Signs A La Carte in December, he immediately decided to work on his signs project with us. The venue was opening in two weeks, and he needed to be ready with signs advertising the new business.
We started out doing one interior sign and window graphics. The logo was printed on vinyl, laminated, and applied to the wall of the entrance.
Behind the Tilted Axes customer service desk, the white wall was covered by a wall graphic with the logo. After working on his reception area, Jason noticed that his entertainment center needed some adjustments. Signs A La Carte created stickers for the pool table area that said, ‘No drinks and food on the pool table.
The last big job was the storefront sign. At this point, Jason decided to create a franchise, which meant he needed to rethink his logo and add more colors. The outdoor sign was printed on vinyl applied on acrylic with an aluminum frame. His little touch adding black pieces in the corners looks even better.
Then Jason came to us with a wonderful idea for decorating the bathroom doors. Like with the wall, we used overlaminate printed vinyl. To avoid being visible from outside, the plain doors became a nice plaid.
If you get the chance, go throw axes and check out the beautiful signs. And if you like the work we did and want to invest in your signage, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll work with you to grow your business!
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.
