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!

Signs A La Carte ( West Chester-PA- sign company) will help you decide what storefront sign using 3-dimensional letters is best for your building.
As a business owner, you’ve probably asked yourself what type of sign is best for your storefront. Nowadays, three-dimensional letters are almost everywhere—they have greater visibility, a professional appearance, and excellent versatility and illumination. Channel letters and dimensional letters are the best options for three-dimensional letters.
Signs A La Carte, your West Chester, PA sign company, will help you decide what storefront sign is best for your building.
Channel letters are one of the most commonly requested signs for clothing stores, restaurants, jewelry stores, offices, supermarkets, and even schools. These building signs can be customized to represent any logo, message, or idea. The decorative sign is made of polycarbonate and aluminum and customized to fit your requirements, including color, size, letters and numbers, fonts, and symbols. The appearance of the sign is unlike a traditional lightbox. Channel letters are a modern and chic way to promote your brand.
The most important detail of channel letter signs is the illumination. They’re generally face-lit or reverse halo styles. Face-lit channel letters project light onto the front of the letters, while reverse halo-style letters project light out the back of the letters at night and are mounted on a raceway. Lighted signs attract your potential customers’ attention as they pass by your business.
Fortunately, if one letter is damaged, it’s easy to replace. Signs A La Carte doesn’t have to replace the entire sign, which can be pricey.
Unlike channel letters, dimensional letters are illuminated by an exterior source that can be added later if desired. These exterior signs can be made with a variety of materials such as acrylic, painted foam, acrylic-faced foam, formed plastic or metal letters (brushed or unbrushed). They’re installed directly into the building’s facade. Signs A La Carte will guide you through the process of creating an eye-catching sign for your business.
Another advantage of dimensional letters is their versatility. They can be used inside the building or incorporated into a monument sign or a post and panel sign.
What’s Best for My Business?
Want to attract attention to your sign at night? Channel letters are your best option. If your business doesn’t require light at night, dimensional letters would be a better choice. At Signs A La Carte, we can help you select and install your dream sign on the front of your building. Both signs are great for promoting your brand.
Still unsure which letters to choose? All photos on this page, taken from one of the last jobs we completed, show the difference between channel letters, dimensional letters and other jobs we can do.
If you’re a new business owner or want to update your existing exterior signage, we can work with you to create a sign that suits your needs. Call Signs A La Carte at 484-464-0111.

Signs A La Carte- West Chester, PA- has a A Guide to Vinyl Signs to help you custom any kind of signs.
In a previous post, we answered some common questions we get asked as a full-service, custom sign company. Another question our customers ask: what does it mean when we say full service?
Signs A La Carte has a large printer that can print any type of vinyl and wallpaper we apply on various surfaces. Here is a list (not exhaustive) of the types of vinyl signs we can create.
Wall and Window Graphics
The printer uses primary colors to reproduce all pictures and designs for your project. The chart below represents the colors we can print.
Windows and walls are great surfaces for vinyl application—they are flat, and the space can be used to promote your name, your brand, your tagline, and your beautiful pictures.
At Signs A La Carte, we discuss ways to maximize blank space on your vehicle with the message you want to convey. We provide four options for advertising on your vehicle:
Prefer something removable? We create vehicle magnets! However, these magnetic stickers require extra care than vinyl wraps and must be regularly cleaned to prevent rust.
Monument and Dimensional Channel Letters
Maybe your business is in a business center and you want customers to recognize your business from a distance. You might need dimensional or illuminated letters. If your business center has no monument sign or pylon to indicate which businesses occupy the space, we can install a sign with your design. Signs A La Carte can also update your business name on the face of an existing monument sign or pylon.
Channel letters can help call attention to your building and business. We can also create other building signs to point to your location, including a post, sign rider, store front sign, and more.
Lobby and Interior Signs
When customers enter your building, their first impressions are key. Did they see your logo? The name on your desk? A directional sign? These little details are important for nice Lobby Sign and Interior Signs, and the Signs A La Carte team can help improve the visual experience for your customers. We can also create an ADA sign if needed.
Trade Show Display
Are you promoting your business at an event? You need a trade show display. Signs A La Carte can create a canopy, runner table, banner, roll-up banner, flags, posters, and more. These exhibition booth pieces show who you are, where you are located, and what you have to offer.
Signs A La Carte specializes in indoor and outdoor signs to showcase your business and attract more customers. Even if you don’t know exactly what you want, we can help! Just give us a call.
Signs A La Carte explains and answers commonly asked questions about Signs: price, wrap, type of signs...
As a full-service, custom sign company located in West Chester-PA-, Signs A La Carte answers many questions about window graphics, vehicle wraps, outdoor and indoor signs, and other types of signs. We’ve included a few of our most commonly asked questions below to give you a look into our process and what makes us different from other sign companies.
Why do you ask so many questions about my sign before we talk about price?
It isn’t easy to provide a price right away because all of our signs are custom. The price of an interior or exterior sign varies depending on several criteria:
Each of these parameters must be considered so we can provide an accurate quote.
How much do you really need to know about my vehicle before you wrap it?
Before processing your vehicle wrap, Signs A La Carte asks important questions about the type of vehicle you want to wrap (car, truck, trailer, plane, etc.). We can give you a quick estimate because we have thousands of templates with standard characteristics. However, we need to know the make, model, year, color, options, add-on equipment, and style of your vehicle first.
To optimize your message and increase brand awareness, Signs A La Carte discusses your goals to deliver the best solution that promotes your brand and generates business. We ask about your logo, website, tagline, offerings, phone number, photos, and more.
With this information, our designers will guide you through the design process, keeping your budget and your vehicle’s space limitations in mind. We can discuss various options including the vinyl color and finishes and the types of wrap that fit your budget.
These are a few types of wrap we offer:
Why is Signs A La Carte different from other companies?
Most of the time, we apply printed vinyl on a sign or vehicle. This is why our vinyl comes in the form of a quality adhesive that’s resistant to external elements like sun, rain, and wind. You have many color and finish options: matte, semi-gloss, gloss, brushed steel, carbon fiber, matte metallic, chrome, and even leather-like finishes.
Finally, our solvent-free printing process combines primary colors for a better-quality image. It allows us to reproduce images in solid color, high-resolution photographs, printing on various types of vinyl (transparent, block out) that we can apply on walls, windows, vehicles, acrylic, and PVC. Our prints come with a layer of film coating adapted to the material, if necessary, to guarantee incredible durability.

Are you the owner of a new commercial property like a restaurant, a medical office, a retail location, a shopping center or a real estate agency? Are you located near West Chester, PA?
If you answered yes, you need some outdoor signage. But what kind of sign do you need?
We, at Signs A La Carte, have a variety of materials to help you find the perfect sign for your brand.
In this post, you will find some examples of storefront signs that you probably see everyday. But which is right for you? Below you’ll see examples of signs that are either attached to the wall or perpendicular at the front facade like a rider sign.
The most exciting question you have to ask yourself is: Do you want your sign illuminated?
The benefit of an illuminated sign is that at night, customers will still be able to notice you in the dark and it can help them to remember your location during the day. We work with an electrician to install your illuminated sign -- and you can choose whether you want to use LED or neon lights.
Another option for an illuminated sign is having us create an acrylic sign in a case. Inside that case we would add lights and the entire sign would glow in the dark like this company, Unique Hearing Aid Solutions, chose.
Maybe you prefer illuminated letters! In this case, you need channel letters, which are generally made of acrylic faces that allow light to be projected through the letters in a multitude of colors. We do it all!
Not looking for an illuminated storefront sign? No problem. We also make PVC, wood, aluminum or stainless-steel panels.
To embellished them, we use different methods like printing, engraving, laser cutting, and painting. We also use colorful vinyl or can add material like raised metal, acrylic, backlit or plastic colorful letters. Signs A La Carte can customize your durable exterior signage with your unique specifications. We can even help with a colorful underlay or installing a spotlight underneath to keep your sign noticeable in the dark.
We also install letters directly on your storefront like Gus & Ruby Letterpress. The material we use are very durable and easy to install. The letters are cut and shaped into any font style you choose!
Here in West Chester, the most affordable storefront used is a called a “sign rider”. A sign rider is usually a smaller sign that accompanies a larger sign or graphic (similar to what you see in a real estate frames). Sign riders are usually placed either below or above (or both) the larger graphic in the frame. Additionally they are used on posts and even hang from iron or wooden hangers. The sign is attached perpendicular to your business. We attach your vinyl to wood or an aluminite sheet, with the information you need
Did you know that your location is on a specific zoning map? That means that you’re not exactly able to do whatever you want. You have to follow the directives from your city or township. Illuminated signs require a permit, not just the preexisting sign rider. You can simply replace sign riders with new information if you keep it the same size. But to make it bigger or change any other specifications to your outdoor signage, you need to check with your city or town -- and definitely your landlord.
Signs A La Carte can produce any sign you can dream up! Just come with your ideas (and permits lol) and we will bring your dreams to life.
