About Us

The mission of Speedball Art Products Company is to provide high quality, safe art products that contribute to the creative work of artists, students, and crafters throughout the world.


To our Friends in the Art Community-

It has been a difficult few years for many people around the world and the art materials industry is no different-- except in one very important way. Despite the difficulties we may face and the challenges that come our way, artists never stop creating and making the world a more beautiful and thoughtful place. In fact, it sometimes seems that challenging times push artists to reach deep within themselves and produce great things.




Throughout the year we receive many notes, pictures, and creative work. Based on our inbox (electronic and the old fashioned kind), last year was a banner year for art and artists' creativity. If you are an artist, student, or teacher; thank you for using Speedball products and inspiring us with your creativity. If you are a retailer, distributor, or school administrator; thank you for your dedication to making fine art materials accessible. And if you are new to Speedball, reading our catalog for the first time; we welcome you and encourage you to express yourself.

Your artwork really does inspire us and push us to constantly improve. Our factory in North Carolina is filled with prints, drawings, lettering, paintings, ceramics, and more. We all enjoy them every day as we strive to build upon our heritage as a manufacturer of fine art materials for over 110 years.

Thank you for your continued support and interest in Speedball. Best wishes for a healthy, happy, and successful year.
