Our Story

“Together, We Make,” was produced in recognition and celebration of the interconnectedness and reciprocal inspiration present not only between our Speedball team members but also with the artist partners we serve. Each and every one of our products showcases the investment we have in people whether through the development and innovation that is informed, shaped and fueled by the insight collected through our artist partnerships or by way of the true craftsmanship exhibited in each hand-tooled, hand-inspected and hand-packed item. We are a company made of individuals committed to participating in our communities across specialty and technique in a way that is meaningful, genuine and that can act as a catalyst for trust and inspiration. This engagement allows our team to learn more about how to best serve our customers through our products and our team dedicates years, often decades, to honing their craft to allow us to continue to deliver consistently high quality products to your studios and classrooms. These collaborations will carry us forward well into the future and it is only with you and as a team that we can truly make something special. Together.
