SIGNS & BANNERS
Two brothers, Wilson and George Southwell, founded Corpus Christi Stamp Works in 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, Jr., 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. In 2002 CCSW acquired South Texas Graphics Specialties (STGS) which was originally established in 1984. STGS services the greater Houston and East Texas areas. They specialize in sales, project management and installation. National Signage Affiliates is a DBA and is comprised of CCSW and STGS.
Under Chester’s leadership of 40 years, CCSW has evolved into a complete source for identifying device products. CCSW is the fabricator/manufacturer of architectural wayfinding systems with facilities located in Corpus Christi, Texas. Our Houston, Texas office still manages the greater Houston and East Texas areas. Our signage products can be found in many states throughout the U.S. in both interior and exterior environments. Our corporate headquarters and manufacturing plant located in Corpus Christi, Texas, operates from a 36,000 square foot facility with state of the art equipment and technology.
