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.
What kind of signs do you need to show that your shop is open? by Signs A La Carte - West Chester, PA-
During the pandemic period, whether we are in the red, yellow, or green zone, customers need to know if your business is open. A custom sign is a great idea to show if you are operating right now or when you will open your facility.
At Signs A La Carte, we work with you to make the right sign for you, whether you are a salon, a fitness center, a restaurant, or any other type of small business that deals with customers every day. To find the right sign for you, our team creates a sign custom with your brand, your name, your style and of course information the customer should know.
Just before we learned we had to close, Bernard Grogan, from Hill’s Quality Seafood asked us to do a banner for his business. He wants to attract customers passing by cars saying the store is open and they can take orders by phone. The delivery will be at the curbside. We sent him the proof of the banner, he accepted it, we printed and delivered in no time.
A few days later, he thanked us because the banner gave him new customers. We are very happy for him. To add to the good news, our company was accepted by the government to stay open under conditions. If he needs us for any kind of signs, he can come back, and that is what he did.
Following the rules of the government about the shutdown of the state, the essential living business could still operate, but in some cases, they need to have posters about the new employee rules. We printed the posters for our customers. They needed a new employee; we created yard signs for them to advertise. Hill’s Quality Seafood is a chain of 4 stores, 3 are in Delaware County and 1 in Chester County, their seafood is so fresh and delicious, especially their crab cakes. Do not hesitate to go and try.
Last week, he realized that he needed a sign to direct his customers to the parking lot when they came to get their seafood. We proposed to him, an A-frame with 2 posters.
Even after the covid-19 pandemic, they will be able to use the a-frame for another purpose. They will just have to change the poster. Something that Signs A La Carte can do easily.
You see, Signs A La Carte can make temporary signs to help little enterprises stay in business. We would like to mention we can do more signs than yard signs, posters, large banners and A-frame to advertise your company, such as flags or clings.
Many companies underestimate the importance of customized signage. Your business must stand out to be different from a competitor. Your business must have its own identity.
Here is what Bernard Grogan had to say about working with Signs A La Carte: “Working with Christian, Veronique, & Signs a la Carte was absolutely crucial to being able to communicate to the public that our small business was still open during the initial COVID-19 shutdown - we didn’t realize the full value of a banner until we started to see how many new customers we were getting. At first, we were just trying to stay open by serving some of our longtime customers, but our business actually grew and a big part of that is due to the service of Signs a la Carte. As we had to change our business operations on the fly, Signs a la Carte was there with everything we needed to make it work. When we needed to hire, we turned to Signs a la Carte instead of spending hundreds of dollars on an online job listing. We needed signs to help our customers understand our new system for pickup - we had the signs the very same day."
"From the start, working with Signs a la Carte has been wonderful. Incredibly quick turnaround, very reasonable prices, personable service, and quality products that they stand behind - they are exactly the kind of business we want to support and work with. And it’s not just a matter of simply wanting to support another small, local, family owned business....but you literally will not find better service or more fair prices elsewhere, especially from national chains or franchises.”
If you buy all your signage from companies that have ready-made templates, your personal style may not be reflected as you expect. It is very difficult to have an aesthetic consistent with this approach. But if your sign is just personalized for you, you can be sure that all your signage appropriately represents your brand. Call Signs A La Carte, we create custom signs for your open business.
Signage is an important element when it comes to operating a church. The public eye wants to be proud of where they go to Sunday mass. A sign representing who the church is will gather the community together.
What's better that working in a beautiful building? Be able to feel proud that passers-by know what it stands for. Signs A La Carte is able to ensure you get the type of sign you are looking for. We go above and beyond our customers expectations and assure you that you will love your new sign.
Indoor church signs
Large or small all signs are needed within the church. Having directional signs will put members at ease, stress-free knowing where they need to go. You want your members to be able to have an overall great experience. Indoor church signage is most often needed for the labeling of doors, classrooms, offices, and any other room in the building.
Another main use of indoor signage is for temporary events. Temporary events held in a church may include classes, meetings, holidays or other types of gatherings. These signs could be displayed in the lobby of the church so members know where to go.
We recently worked with The Well Full Gospel Baptist Church to create the quality sign that they were looking for. The sign is made of an acrylic face where we applied a laminated printed vinyl. It is mounted on the wall with 4 stand-offs. The sign gives a new appearance to the inside church.
Outdoor Church Signs
Signs for the exterior of your church go far beyond the typical signage. You want to stand out and be creative for your own church. Members should be proud of where they attend mass and mesmerized by its beauty. A monument sign would be a great addition to any church so passers-by will be able to see a large sign out front of their church.
Here is an example of one we did. The sign is made of wood with flushed acrylic letters. The congregation can even change the time of Worship, the numbers are interchangeable.
Church window Decals
Churches with large glass windows looking to welcome visitors are able to display service hours using vinyl window decals or clings. Window decals are cost effective and provide information for your members in a space preserving location.
The best way to advertise your service hours and encourage people to attend is by using signage. Using yard signs, banners, vinyl, monument, or indoor lobby signs your church will benefit from any of these signs. Convenience is key when it comes to looking for a church to attend and by using informative signs you will help ease future members.

Customers will remember your vehicle on the road when it comes time to think about the service they need.
Full wraps- A wrap is a large vinyl graphic or decal. The application of the wrap allows you to change the vehicle's appearance in a very short period of time.
Partial wraps- allow you to start adding large swatches of color and other branding elements to your vehicle fleet, creating a more memorable and recognizable local business brand.
Spot graphics- are when cut vinyl letters and printed images are applied on your trucks. Cut lettering is great for things like your business name and services.
With commercial vehicle wraps no matter where you go, you’re getting your business’s brand out into the world and exposing new customers to your company and services. This marketing tool will guarantee an increase in impressions throughout your company daily.

Where does your new business begin?

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
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.

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.
