Our Values

Speedball® not only works to deliver superior quality products to the artists it serves, but also hopes to foster an environment that allows its employees to cultivate the best for themselves-both inside and outside of Speedball’s doors.  This employee-centric atmosphere attracts just the kind of people you’d want to have creating materials for you—those who are devoted to doing their best each and every day.  The team here has many employees that have dedicated most, if not all, of their careers to mastering their crafts at Speedball, only adding to the consistently top-quality materials and service we’re able to offer you.
