For over quarter of a century, customers have chosen Key Production for Vinyl Pressing, CD Replication, DVD Manufacturing and Special Packaging. Our exceptional knowledge, experience and project management skills combine to achieve unrivalled results. Consistently successful projects inspire lasting professional relationships with major labels and independent artists alike. Fiercely independent, we answer to our clients only – a standpoint nurtured and cherished since our founding, and considered a core asset of our company. Over many years the relationships Key’s experienced staff has developed with trusted suppliers, both in the UK and worldwide, have allowed us to negotiate, establish, monitor and maintain the best available quality, value and service for our clients. Over time, Key Production has been expanding and enriching its expertise and influence by setting-up in-house departments for our clients and with several acquisitions including Think Tank Media, Creative Packaging & Merchandise Agency, Breed Media, Music Manufacturer specialising in small runs and eco packaging and MODO Design & Production, a Creative Packaging Design company focusing on the entertainment business.
Kickstarter is an enormous global community built around creativity and creative projects. Over 11 million people, from every continent on earth, have backed a Kickstarter project.
Some of those projects come from influential artists like De La Soul or Marina Abramović. Most come from amazing creative people you probably haven’t heard of — from Grandma Pearl to indie filmmakers to the band down the street.
Every artist, filmmaker, designer, developer, and creator on Kickstarter has complete creative control over their work — and the opportunity to share it with a vibrant community of backers.
We built Kickstarter to help bring creative projects to life. We measure our success as a company by how well we achieve that mission, not by the size of our profits. That’s why, in 2015, we became a Benefit Corporation. Benefit Corporations are for-profit companies that are obligated to consider the impact of their decisions on society, not only shareholders. Radically, positive impact on society becomes part of a Benefit Corporation’s legally defined goals.
When we became a Benefit Corporation, we amended our corporate charter to lay out specific goals and commitments to arts and culture, making our values core to our operations, fighting inequality, and helping creative projects come to life.
