In modern graffiti terminology, a production is a collaboration between two or more graffiti writers, with carefully executed pieces, a complex background, and possibly characters, often tied together by a common theme. They are also the traditional way for crews to showcase their talent, with productions featuring work from every member.

Productions are usually done on walls, whether by permission or in illegal yards, although you might occasionally see one on a freight train. The kings of NYC subway graffiti were known for their top-to-bottom and whole-car productions.
