With business, companies, and even schools closing due to COVID-19 many accomplishments went unrecognized. Signs A La Carte wanted to do our part with helping the community.
Since high school and college seniors were not able to get the proper celebration they deserve, many parents and faculty have reached out to see what small gesture they could do to help make light of the current situation. At Signs A La Carte, we make custom signs, to fit the personal desire of the customer. Yard signs seemed like the perfect fit for the students of the community to be able to represent their school and themselves for this celebration.
We want to thank the mom’s who went out of their way to order from Signs A La Carte to make their loved one feel special. The orders first began when a customer of ours mentioned the sign she got from us on facebook. Her friends told their friends and BOOM we had hundreds of yard sign orders coming in. We are very grateful for the business during this current pandemic and even more thrilled that students are getting a little taste of what they deserve.
Each yard sign we create is different in its own unique way. They can be different sizes, have a different design, and can even be personalized. We want our customers to be as involved in the process as much as we are. If you have a design in mind we can make it! We make sure to pay attention to important details and colors. Each of the yard signs comes with stakes to put into the ground for convenience.
How we make yard signs:
We want this process to be simple and easy. To create a sign as soon as possible we take in account a few different things. If you send a file or image over to us we would love for it to be an Ai, ESP, or PDF. These files are always clean and sized/scaled accordingly. Pixelated images are the result of an inadequate file. A quality sign begins with quality resolution. Once we have the image we can then begin to collect ideas for your sign. Color, font, and size are all factors that have to be taken into consideration. We can even take logo’s or mascots from schools to add on to the yard sign. Now it is time for production.
Along with custom yard signs we also make lawn signs, banners, and flags. If you want to celebrate your loved one in a special way we want to help! Contact Signs A La Carte for a free quote on any sign you please. We are grateful to be a part of such a wonderful community especially during these uncertain times.

Having an appealing image is something every business strives for; we are able to custom make or customize the signs you want in order to create the space you want.
Where does your new business begin?
Outside! To engage and bring in customers you need an outdoor sign or signs to attract them. An outdoor sign is a big purchase for any company or business. It is a highly visible statement you want by passers to see. There are many ways to make your unique sign stand out.
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.

Just before Christmas, Signs A La Carte went to Savvy Custom Gifts to install window clings on doors and white lettering in their showroom and on their corridor wall.
By the way, Savvy Custom Gifts offers custom, personalized gifts, gift baskets, and promotional products. Owner Katie Taylor and her creative team will partner with you to design and create beautiful and affordable personalized gifts for your family, friends, and customers.
Katie wanted to have white lettering with her company’s logo on two walls. We used the Graphtec plotter to cut the design, weeded the extra material, and masked the signs to be installed. Her business also had several glass doors that needed to be updated with vinyl.
Benefits of Window Clings
Signs A La Carte installed printed window clings. These decals have no adhesive backing, and static electricity helps them stick to the smooth surface. Window clings can be printed and cut into any shape your business needs. They’re made from flexible, easy-to-move thin vinyl film that can be installed in seconds.
Since the clings have no adhesive backing, you can easily reposition them if needed and even use them in another location. Most importantly, this product leaves no residue.
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.

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!
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!
