Medal Of Honor Historical Marker

We submitted a template to honor PFC Oscar P. Austin, USMC and Congressional Medal of Honor recipient. The workmanship is excellent, communication with the staff is excellent and turn around as promised. We will be using Southwell for our other planned historical markers honoring veterans.

Director of Inst. Advancement

Howard College has been purchasing items from Southwell for several years, but recently found ourselves in a situation where we needed a plaque with very little turn around time. The Southwell staff went above and beyond to help us and get the item shipped in quick order. We do appreciate all that they did to help us!!!

Quality Texas Service

When I saw how long Southwell has been in business and that they are a Texas company, I was moved to go with them for a dedication plaque. Now I see why they have been around so long. My experience was very smooth and the plaque looks great. Plus I received it ahead of the promise date. I recommend The Southwell Co. and will use them again in the future.

My family is very pleased with the quality of the beautiful bronze plaque we just recently received. We were always kept updated on the progress, and Ashley made the process easy for someone who is a novice in this area. Thank you again for an outstanding job from start to finish!

Great customer service and a wonderful product

Knowing their great workmanship on Texas historical markers, we went straight to The Southwell Company to design and manufacture a marker for one of the interpretive sites at the George Ranch Historical Park. The design and production were just perfect and the staff were tremendously helpful!

by Melissa Sanders
Thank you!

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending some time with Billy Southwell and Shannon Disney. They sat down with us and chatted about the company as well as Texas history. We even had the pleasure of meeting Scott Southwell and several of the other staff members, who really do seem like a family. They showed us several steps of how the historical markers are created, which is a remarkable and intricate process. Cruz was awesome – he really seems to have a passion for what he does. This is an amazing company – family. We are very grateful that they took the time with us.

Memorial Plaque

I just received the memorial plaque I had made for my best friend who died after a 2 year battle with pancreatic cancer. I could not be happier with the plaque - it is well constructed, clean and I'll be honored to have it on my ranch in memory of my friend. Southwell was easy to work with and fast - the whole experience has been great.

Beautiful plaque

My family had this beautiful plaque cast to commemorate the Texas Family Land Heritage 100 years of our family farm operation. We are very pleased with quality of the plaque, and will display it proudly. Thank you to Ashley and all of the workers at Southwell Co. for putting such dedication into your work.

by Haven for Hope
Great customer service

On behalf of my organization, I had to order a bronze recognition plaque without really knowing much about what that entailed. Ashley was extremely helpful and it was easy to communicate with her via email. We are very pleased with the plaque and with the installation service they provided. It's easy to see why they have been in business for so long!

by Kate Nation
Great plaque and customer service

We ordered a plaque to recognize the volunteers who completed a conservation project. The folks at Southwell Co. worked with us to adjust our design to get the plaque within our budget. They were very responsive and helpful. The plaque turned out great. We are very pleased.

by Laurie Gonzales
Great service, Great Plaques!

I ordered our plaques thinking we weren't going to get them in time for our dedication ceremony but they came in very quickly! The service was also excellent. Ashley helped us get everything in order and the art department did a great job getting a proof back to us much quicker than I expected. The quality of the plaques were outstanding. We are very pleased and we can't wait to unveil them to the public!

Outstanding Quality & Service

Southwell has proven time and again top quality and customer service. Thank you!

by Bill Hanson
Highly Recommend

I began working with Billy Southwell and his staff in 1994 when the San Antonio Sports Foundation created the San Antonio Sports Hall of Fame, and it has been a pleasure to this day. Southwell Company annually produced four to five forty-pound bronze plaques for the induction banquet, and each one was perfect and delivered on time. Billy and his staff were both friendly and efficient, and it was really a great experience working with them throughout the production process. When our family needed a memorial plaque for our mother that was placed in Vermont, I did not hesitate to have this fine San Antonio company produce it. I highly recommend the Southwell Company for any plaque needs.

Professional Service

Work Review

My request for estimate was received by Southwell and handled in a very professional and timely manner. I feel as if Ashley was assigned as my personal account representative, she answered questions and fielded my numerous inquiries in a timely and efficient manner. The quality of the work exceeded my expectations and was done very well. I especially appreciated the detailed shop drawing in advance of the work which I showed to staff members. Southwell accommodated my request for special arrangements once the plaque was finished and I appreciated this as well.

The Southwell Company

Thank you, Ashley, for all your patience, guidance, and attention. Our family had no experience in the beginning when we started the process of getting a National Historic District marker and an In Memoriam marker for our father's office building. With your help, it was a breeze. We are grateful to you and for you. Thank you Southwell Company.

by Ronald Simone
Exemplary Service and Quality

We have been dealing with Southwell Co. for the last 6 months or so, and I can vouch for their efficiency in operation. Their staff are prompt, professional and timely with all orders thus far.  I would highly recommend using their company over any other historical marker manufacturer.

by Jim Blay

This order was released on 8-21-15, checked on 9-16-15 @ 9:08 am via email and replied the material would ship on Friday 9-18-15. The order did not ship when advised and phone call was made for the status again on 9-28-15. I was advised the order would ship 9-29-15. I would like to see a better lead time on orders. Price was good, product is always good but lead time and communication is poor.

Thank you for your review. We try very hard to meet all of our customers deadlines. On very rare occasions, due to unforeseen circumstances, we are sometimes unable to meet promised ship dates. We are sorry for any inconveniences that this may have caused. We always appreciate your business and consider you as a valued customer.

by Lacy Luckett

We have had the pleasure of working with Southwell for around three years. They have produced 16 historical markers for us. Their professionalism and dedication to meeting our deadlines have been wonderful.

My Grandpa Alan Davis Mitchell passed away in 2009.
I didn't know until after his passing his many accomplishments.
The most important was he "married the Love of His Life Dorothy Tucker.
This casting has meant a lot to me. I hung my grandmas picture beside his. She would have appreciated it.

Thanks so much for a job well done!

Outstanding Service

From design to delivery, the service provided by Southwell was exceptional! Ashley Mireles was professional, courteous, and patient throughout the ordering process. She is a valuable asset to the company. The design/build crew did an excellent job. The marker looks great and we couldn't be more pleased. Even the packaging is of the highest quality. I HIGHLY recommend Southwell to anyone considering purchasing a sign or marker. Thanks for such great service and such a fine product!

Working with Ashley was totally professional. She is a very knowledgeable person with a great attitude and a desire to exceed your expectation in what you're trying to accomplish. The Plaque I ordered was an exceptional piece of artwork. I would recommend anyone interested in a plaque to contact her and the Southwell Co before making a final decision to purchase a plaque.

by Rick
No Job Too Small

We just needed four screw and rosettes for a bronze plaque. I looked all over the internet and no one would sell me just screws and rosettes. I had to buy a plaque. Then I remembered Southwell had done work at the Vicksburg National Military Park. I called Ashley and she took care of us! So I guess no job is too small or too big! Thanks!

by Kathie

We found Southwell on the internet when searching for plaque manufacturers for our art trail. Ashley was knowledgeable, professional and courteous. Our plaque looks great and we highly recommend The Southwell Co. We will use them for future needs.

Wonderful Service And Product

Our experience with Southwell Company was excellent. Working with Joyce Manrizuez, and, in turn with the craftsmen who actually constructed our plaque, was a great experience - especially when we discovered that we, the customer, had made an error in a date included on the plaque which had to be corrected. That was quickly taken care of, with no visible sign of the correction. I would recommend Southwell to anyone needing this type of service and product. To Southwell, thank you all for your quality workmanship and excellent service. Oak Park United Methodist Church, Corpus Christi, TX

Service Fantastic - Product Outstanding

I can't thank the Southwell Company enough for the help, experience and the wonderful plaque when my project was complete.

Excellent Work, Excellent Service

Our old cemetery has new importance now that its story is being told via the beautiful historical marker the Southwell Co. helped us design and purchase. Helpful service as we selected the size we needed and altered the text until it was perfect. Our small group is so proud of the beautiful sign that will last for many, many years educating our community about its founder and its history.

I Would Highly Recommend The Southwell Company! Personal, Yet Professional Service!

While going thru a very emotional time of purchasing a plaque for my young son's passing, Joyce at The Southwell Company was very helpful and understanding. She even checked up with me after the purchase and receipt of the plaque just to say "Hi" and check on me. This personal service and attention to detail is so rare in our busy lives and to know that I found a company that truly cares about their clients and their product is refreshing. I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to work with Joyce and The Southwell Company. Thank you and God Bless!

Five Stars Is Not Enough!

We received the town and county historical plaques that we ordered from the Southwell Co., and they surpass our expectations, they are very clear and legible, and I know they will garner a lot of attention. Working the Southwell Co., especially Joyce Manriquez, was also a very positive experience, and she was so helpful and patient during the numerous drafts that we went through. All I can say is that if anyone ever needs any plaques made up, you cannot do better than The Southwell Co.!

I Would Definitely Recommend You....Great Job

Southwell did a fantastic job and I as well as everyone else were impressed with our Texas Ladies State Logo on the plaque and that the print was on both sides of the plaque. I would really like to thank Gina for helping with everything that needed to be done along the way and that the plaque was here and set up for our Texas Ladies State Championship and for the Dedication of the pavilion.

Excellent Custom Plaque Service!

The team at Southwell was very professional and helpful in the design and production of several bronze and aluminum plaques we used to recognize donors to our non-profit. The custom antiqued bronze plaque with antiqued photo portrait turned out to be absolutely beautiful! The donor was speechless... Other plaques as well turned out even better than we expected. They met their commitments as far as timeline and did a great job with installation as well. Would definitely recommend using them for any custom plaque needs.
