How to Stand Out By Adding Channel Letters To Your Business -by Signs A La Carte, West Chester, PA –
Are you starting a new business and not sure where to begin when it comes to signage? No need to worry, we got you covered. At Signs A La Carte we understand that not everyone is a sign connoisseur and we are here to help. We want you to make the best decision for your new company. Channel letters are a great star when it comes to branding yourself.
Chanel letters are a lighted sign made almost always of aluminum. Front lit channel letters have an aluminum back and the front will have an acrylic piece mounted to it. The walls of these letters are typically 4-5 inches deep and form a channel for the lights to be mounted in. back lit channel letters are the opposite. The letters are individually mounted to the wall to hold it off the wall so you get a light dispersion. Either of these options are a great choice to make a lasting impression for yourself.
There are a few ways channel letters can be mounted to the wall. They can be mounted on a raceway which is an aluminum box behind the letters or individually to the wall. If the letters are being individually mounted to the wall we need to allow for some space to run the wires behind the wall and connect them together. Depending on the sculpture of your building we have ways to work around it so there are no issues when it comes to installing your sign. We have come across some unique situations but we always make it work!
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. From start to finish we want to ensure you are getting exactly what you are paying for. If you have a vision in mind for what type of channel letter signage you would like to see on the front of your business contact Signs A La Carte today for a free quote.

The different types of building and storefront signs we have to offer -by Signs A La Carte West Chester, PA-
There are various different types of storefront building signs to choose from. From channel letters to LED signs they all provide different types of advantages to your business. What are the benefits you ask, building and storefront signage is very eye catching.
The different types of signage we can create
Using vibrant LED signs will easily attract the attention of passers-by. Another type of signage that will be very beneficial to your business is channel letter signs. Channel letter signs are custom made three-dimensional letters that are often illuminated on the inside. They can also be non illuminated. Using these often large signs will ensure potential customers will see your brand. This type of signage can also be illuminated internally.
If you're looking for store front signage at a low cost we have plenty of options for you. A backlit light box is very popular for companies on a tight budget. A backlit box typically has LED on the back panel which light up the entire graphic so the picture can be seen at night. If it is not important that your sign is seen at night we are also able to create a non lit sign made out of acrylic or aluminum composite panel.
Storefront signage allows you to display what your business has to offer. Using your graphics or logos allows you to give passers-by an idea of what is inside. The idea of a store front sign is not only to provide a store name and details but to also reflect the store’s personality. Each store front sign will be custom made to your liking. If you have a design in mind Signs A La Carte is happy to work with you to make that design come to life. Not sure where to begin? No problem. Our expert design team is able to create various designs for you to ensure you are getting exactly the type of storefront signage you are looking for. When it comes to installation, we have got you covered! From start to finish we handle it all at Signs A La Carte. Our team installs your custom sign to ensure it will be durable and long lasting.

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.
Looking to start a new business... Don’t know where to begin? The first thing you need is signs to show who you are!

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.

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?

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.

Monument Signs, Building Signs and Store Windows for retail stores in West Chester area.
As the owner of a retail store, you probably know you need signs, but you might not know where to begin. Signs A La Carte can help you decide. After you contact us, we’ll meet with you at your business to discuss your needs, goals, and preferences. We’ll also bring our book with images of previous jobs to give you some ideas.
Types of Exterior Retail Signage
To make your business visible to potential customers, we recommend putting your business name in various places outside of your business.
On the Monument Sign
The monument sign or pole at the entrance to the commercial area is a great place to show people they’ve come to the right location. Whether the panel face is large or small, we’ll update the signage for you.
On the Building
Do you want to take advantage of low-voltage LEDs inside your store sign? Channel letters are a great example, but you can also have an LED lighted box, where we can slide in an acrylic face with your business’s name.
The Signs A La Carte team can manufacture the shape, size, and outdoor material of your choice or install dimensional letters. Large outdoor building signs do more than direct people to your business—they project an image with your unique brand and represent your care and professionalism.
On Store Windows
We can apply various types of vinyl to fit your needs, including decals that are visible from the parking lot or colorful, perforated vinyl. The perforated vinyl allows visitors from inside your store to see outside, but the people on the outside aren’t able to see in.
Another way to professionally add important information to your storefront entrance or window is to apply vinyl lettering. Signs A La Carte customizes vinyl letter stickers (font, color, and size) with your business name, hours, and the types of products and services you offer.
The Signs A La Carte Guarantee
Sometimes you need to split your payments into separate installments. In this case, we can install what’s most important to you to promote your business. Generally we install the building signs, followed by the window signs.
Our team works hard every day to be known as the company that guarantees quality, well-manufactured products. We appreciate our customers for trusting us with their business. Meeting with them to present the many options they have is important to us.

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.

How Frosted and Etched Vinyl Graphics Give Your Business More Privacy by Signs A La Carte - West Chester, PA-
Frosted or etched adhesive vinyl graphics keep privacy in conference rooms and executive offices or represent the corporate brand temperately, on sliding doors and glass partitions.
The terms frosted and etched glass come from the type of glass work that existed before vinyl. Etched and frosted glass are generic terms for decorative, translucent glass that obscures visibility and also diffuses light. The difference between the two is in their meaning.
Etching is the process of altering the surface of the glass to create a decorative effect. Frosting changes the surface of the glass from transparent to translucent to create an opaque, cloudy appearance. This is usually achieved by acid-etching, sometimes called ‘French embossing,’ one of the oldest decorative glass techniques. Thousands of years ago, craftsmen discovered that heating fluorite, a dark green mineral, produced hydrofluoric acid. When applied to glass, it eroded the top layer of glass and left a frosted look.
Nowadays to get the effect of frosted glass without using a dangerous chemical, we use vinyl, which is applied on glass. This product is a three-mil, high-quality PVC film with a soft and constant light transmission that prevents reflection. The clear and permanent adhesive is widely appropriate for use on plotter cutting systems. It can be used indoors and outdoors on windows and glass doors.
Frosted and etched vinyl graphics maintain the privacy of conference rooms and executive offices. They can also help display a corporate brand on sliding doors and glass partitions.
Case Study: A. Duie Pyle
For A. Duie Pyle, the Northeast’s premier transportation and logistics provider, etched glass vinyl created privacy in the company’s conference room. Employees using the conference room benefitted from the natural light the vinyl allowed to pass into the room, while still maintaining privacy from the public hallway. Signs A La Carte also cut A. Duie Pyle’s logo out of the vinyl to create a branded wall.
When we worked with International Ministries, also known as the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society, we used frosted vinyl to make the entrance door more decorative. The logo is trimmed like a step and repeat banner. With a strip of etched glass at eye-level, it’s an attractive and sophisticated addition to the business’s ambiance.
River Avenue Digital
Additionally, frosted or etched adhesive vinyl graphics maintain privacy from the outside. River Avenue Digital came to Signs A La Carte for this type of vinyl to create a layer of privacy between the office and passerbys on the street. It gives the office a high-class, professional look.
Kids Clubhouse of the Mainline
Etched and frosted vinyl is also incredibly useful when working with kids. Signs A La Carte installed frosted vinyl on the windows at Kids Clubhouse of the Mainline, a daycare on demand. During the day, sunlight can pass through the vinyl, but the kids and employees aren’t distracted by what’s happening outside.
Whether you need an upscale look for your storefront or interior windows or you want to incorporate frosted glass vinyl for a custom logo or signboard, Signs A La Carte will exceed your expectations by applying attractive and versatile material. Give us a call if you want to install privacy window film at your business!
