The Campus At Smallwoods


We will all look back on the year 2020 with mixed emotions. The year has had its own challenges and stressors, and at moments has just been plain weird. But I will remember this day as one filled with hope.

For years we’ve worked towards having all our Smallwoods team members under one roof—together. A fire robbed us of that opportunity only three short years ago, and we now begin the process of realizing that dream once more. In fact, we put that dream in ink.

With today’s announcement, we now begin site work for the one million square foot facility set on over 200 acres of land. “The Campus” as we refer to it will house the growing Smallwoods team and consolidate all manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, and administration functions into one location. The aim of the campus project is to provide a thriving and creative workplace culture for employees, that combines modern design elements and leaves the native East Texas surroundings undisturbed.

We have the privilege of being a part of so many family stories. Not just in the milestones we help our customers frame, but also in providing our team members with a family friendly workplace that allows them to provide for their loved ones. Keeping our employees in mind, we purchased the property with a dual use idea that you can have a family farm and ranch atmosphere happening all around you, but at the same time have your business. It stems from the idea of wanting to grow a large, loyal team that just took care of each other.

We’ve worked hard. We’ve made sacrifices and committed to this vision for quite some time and now have the confidence to take the next step and make the investment. Employing more of our East Texas neighbors during these hard economic times we face is a responsibility we don’t take lightly. The vision we have for our small part of the world has only just begun. We are grateful for the 300 person team we have around us now, and the team members we look forward to welcoming in the near future.

I ordered pictures from my engagement photo shoot, and I was blown away when I opened the box. The quality of these pictures are incredible; so much so that I ordered a batch of signs for my wedding day. I cannot thank the team at Smallwoods enough for putting my whole heart into pictures. I am definitely a customer for life!

I had been looking for a place to print my most recent family pictures but couldn’t find a place until I came across Smallwood. I have to say, I am thoroughly impressed, amazed, and overjoyed with the pictures I received. I love the way they turned out and cannot be any happier! Thank you so much for such a wonderful job! I will certainly be sharing the Smallwood name with as many people as I can!! Fantastic job!

I was skeptic at first of ordering from here, but wow your company had provided an exceptional experience. The ordering process was quick and easy. Your prices were very competitive and the quality was fantastic. I ordered photo of my engagement shoot and a photo of my sister. It came well package and on time. I will definitely be a returning customer after this experience and telling all of my family and friends about your company. Your company is really doing it right. I guess everything is bigger and better in Texas. Please continue doing what you are doing and I wish you prosperity!

I have never left a review in my life but when I open my boxes I about died. The prints were absolutely beautiful. I could not have asked for better quality. And the shipping boxes were so cute. I will be ordering from you again and passing you on to anyone who asks. Thank you so much!!!

I ordered pictures of my son & his bride from their wedding a year ago for them this Christmas. I couldn’t have been more excited for them to open to see how beautiful they were!! I believe they were overjoyed!!
I’m hoping to order many more for my other kids & for our own home!!
Blessings to you!!

I had issues with my prints, but support and helping me get the quality pictures of my grands was exceptional. Tiffany P. Went over and beyond to satisfy my expectations which will ensure I will order for years to come. I also will share with all my family and friends.
Sincerely, Lisa Cook
