EXCELLENCE since the 1950's
Evolving from a postcard business into a full-service souvenir distributor and manufacturer is no easy feat. Beginning in the 1950's as Petley Studios, Smith-Southwestern began taking shape early on in the early 1970's as the Finchum family got involved. Since then, Smith-Southwestern became a thriving leader in the tourist industry.

With the ability of using in-house manufacturing and factory sources domestic and overseas, allow us to offer custom souvenirs and localization down to the smallest market, while still being competitive for large attractions, museums and national program.
In addition to souvenirs, Smith-Southwestern is also a full silk screen supplier to business of all types. Managing larger seasonal programs, to small custom runs for local business, allows us to partner with some fantastic customers of all types.
