Cassette Tape On-Body Printing

Our new UV LED printing allows some exciting new cassette print options

Cassette tape full colour on-body printingWe can now offer a new type of printing on cassettes that allows very sharp graphics in superb quality and also expands print opportunities by allowing full colour on-body printing either with or without white base layers and with optional spot gloss coatings to highlight certain elements. We can also now print over 3D surfaces, so where a pad or silk screen print can only go onto a flat surface, the UV LED prints can go all over the cassette shell, as show to the right.

Benefits of our cassette on-body printing include:

  • Superb high resolution print quality
  • Full colour printing options, either with or without white base layers
  • The option of spot gloss highlights
  • Ultra durable print that is almost impossible to remove
  • Printing over the full surface of the cassette shell is available
  • Competitive pricing for on-body printing over standard full colour stickers
  • Quick turnaround times (the same as for sticker printing)

Some examples of our work:

Download artwork templates

The yellow areas show the artwork area to be printed. Please select between standard printing or full coverage printing when downloading a template (the prices vary depending on coverage, please pricing table above). Generally if printing on anything other than white, cream or grey tapes, we will add a white base layer beneath colours so that the colours come out accurately and are not affected by the shade of the tape shell behind. If you would only like a partial white layer or would only like your artwork to be printed in white then please supply a separate copy of the artwork for the white layer only (with white print in the file name so that we can easily identify it as being a white print), with the white area to be printed using a solid black colour (essentially white colours are never printed in artwork and for us to print a white base layer we load up a specific file with the black in the file representing the white layer to print). The same is true if you would like a spot gloss layer applied, please supply another copy of the file with gloss print in the file name with the black area showing where the gloss should be printed. This may mean that if some areas are just printed white, some areas are full colour and some bits have a spot gloss then you would need to supply three different artwork files per side, one for the white, one for the colour and black areas and one for the gloss areas.

What our clients say

Just a short note to thank you for the phenomenal service you have given me. On opening the CDs the first thing that impressed was the placement of each CD in their digipak – every single one had the artist name uppermost – a sign of your attention to detail… The quality of the printing and production throughout has been peerless.
