About Us

Brief Description

CCSW is the leading manufacturer of architectural graphics and sign systems in Texas.


Two brothers, Wilson and George Southwell, founded Corpus Christi Stamp Works 1949. The company specialized in designing and manufacturing standard and custom marking devices for the office environment, such as rubber stamps, date markers and seal embossers. Harry Lee Chester, nephew of George and Elsie Southwell, joined the company in 1977 and promptly took on a leadership role. He expanded the business by introducing and developing products as well as services to cater to the wayfinding and signage system needs of architectural firms.
