Cigarette-style cassette tape casesCassette tapes in cigarette pack cases

For small run orders of 25 items or more

These printed cigarette-style packs are the perfect size to contain a cassette tape within a standard ‘Norelco’ size plastic case and make an amazing packaging product for your cassettes, reminiscent of the Cigarettes & Alcohol cassette tape release by Oasis back in the 90’s. They are available with full colour printing on the cigarette pack cases and with the option of matt or gloss laminates.

We can print on matt or gloss card stocks or even recycled card or brown Manila card if you would like something different. We can also produce the white card inners that help to keep the packs closed and add extra rigidity in matt or gloss white, recycled card stock, brown Manila card or solid black card stock.

The finished items can also be shrink wrapped and options like J-cards in the cases and full colour, full coverage on-body printing on the tapes can also be added to give you the freedom to create something really unique.

Please note that this is a new item and volume production of these starts in December 2018, any orders placed before may incur slight delays as we gear up for production.

Cassette shell colours available

We have all the colours in the rainbow with over 60 different shell colours and one of the largest selections in the world. Please note that the exact tape shell style and shade can vary slightly depending on current stock and suppliers, if you have a very specific request then please contact us.

On-body cassette shell printing

We can now offer full colour, white, black and even spot gloss on-body cassette printing with the same turnaround times as stickers and with the option of printing over the full surface of the cassette as shown in the example on the right. Our new in-house printer is a state-of-the-art UV LED printer that is very high resolution and prints incredibly hard and durable inks directly onto the tapes in vibrant colours. There is a small additional fee for the on-body printing, but it is now priced per tape (rather than a fixed setup cost for printing plates), making it more economic for shorter production runs.

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 see our on-body printing pricing table). 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.

Chrome tape option

Chrome cassette tape duplication

If you wish to swap the standard 'Type I' ferric tape for a higher quality 'Type II' chrome tape with better higher frequencies and lower hiss then please ask when placing the order. It adds £0.95+VAT per cassette.

Note that chrome tapes are only available in clear, black and white shell colours as the shells themselves are different as they need the notches in the top of the shells for cassette decks to recognise that they contain a chrome tape and adjust the settings automatically. Chrome tapes are still available with either sticker or on-body printing, just like the other ferric tapes.

Cassette tape duplication recording setupHow are the cassettes recorded and what is the quality like?

We record all of our tapes in real-time from a master CD for the best sound quality. We run twenty eight active decks, allowing us to record over fifty tapes at a time and the decks are regularly serviced and calibrated to keep them in the best recording condition.

Click here to find out more about the setup and some the technical specifications that we work to.

Important note about the tape styles that we stock

Blank cassette production worldwide is very limited and stocks of our coloured tapes can be restricted and cannot be guaranteed, so please check before ordering as some are discontinued styles that may not be available again. However conversely, some new batches are produced from time to time, so we may be able to source alternative styles or other colours if required.

Do you need a barcode?

Barcode generation service for cassettes

If you will be selling your cassettes through a retail store then you will probably need to register a unique barcode for your release and apply it to the rear outer artwork of your product to make it possible for them to sell via their product barcode scanner.

In Europe we use the EAN 13 barcode system and in North America the UPC system is used. We can register an EAN 13 barcode for you and embed the barcode graphic within your cassette packaging artwork for just £12+VAT. The only information that we will require from you will be the name of the band/artist and the title of the release, then just leave a suitable space in your artwork and we will register the barcode and add it to your artwork for you, all for just £12+VAT.

For further information about barcodes, please read our barcode FAQs.


The above prices include courier delivery fees to a single UK address. International delivery can be arranged, please click here to view our overseas delivery rates.

Excellent experience using these guys. I’m in a band called, Pulverise and we used Band CDs to print digi-packs of our debut album - Chaos Games. It’s the first time we’ve ever done anything like this and they supported us from the first contact to completion and delivered a beautiful product that we’re all proud of. Tom G is a legend! Thank you!read more

We printed our first release (Nordkväde) on tape here, the maltese cross folding cover looks amazing and we are really impressed by the all over print of the cassette. Most importantly the sound quality is great! We couldn't be happier with the result and great support they gave us when printing this product. Highly recommended!read more

I've had a 50 CD order for a classical music project. The audio quality was very high, and I loved the black vinyl CDs. The digipak printing was perfect, the staff was friendly and helpful, and overall it was a lovely experience. As a minor issue, I personally find the booklet pocket needlessly large, but that is a matter of taste. I would definitely recommend them. Many thanks for the professional services!read more

Band CDs did a run of cassettes for me in August and they are beautiful. The full on-body printing is a great option and the quality of the J-cards is excellent. Delivery was very fast and the price quoted was extremely competitive. I have since ordered from them again.read more

Band CDs are doing an awesome work with tape manufacturing, their professionalism and efficiency is amazing and the tapes I received are high quality products and they know how to handle problems such as delivery issues. I ordered a batch of 50 tapes for my label, which was lost by the delivery service and after a few months of being in contact with the delivery service trying to locate the parcel, they sent me another batch of 50 tapes that they re-produced. Couldn't recommend Band CDs enough.read more

Can't recommend these guys enough. I worked closely with a chap called Michael at BandCDs on a small batch of cassette tapes. He was an absolute legend! His meticulous attention to detail was unlike anything else I've experienced from any of the printers/manufacturers I've dealt with in the past at other companies. He ensured that certain elements of the design lined up and also bent over backwards to make sure the colour of the printed J Cards matched nicely with the colour of the plastic cassette. Top this off with an extremely quick turnaround, high quality products, great sounding audio and all at the lowest price I could find anywhere online and you can see why it's smiles all round in my house! Great job, thanks again all! :)read more
