From Our Website

The war between the states had just ended. The rumble of ox carts along the narrow streets of old San Antonio was a familiar sound when a little shop was opened on Commerce Street for the purpose of making stencils for wool and cotton shippers. This was the humble beginning of our company. Rubber stamps and Seals were later added to meet the growing demands of the businessmen of Texas for these essential products. In 1912, George T. Southwell purchased the company from one of the employees of the original founder.


Router Cut-Out Letters provide you with the option of virtually any letter style we have in our computer programs or you can send us your own artwork. The process uses CNC (computer numerically controlled) technology to cut out letters and logos from metal plates. Once cut out, the letters are cleaned and painted in our finishing shop. All our letters come with a paper mounting template and concealed mounting studs.
