‘Cassingle’ Cassette Tape Duplication in printed O-cards

cassette tape duplication

Custom O-card cassettes wound to the length you require for orders of 20 or more

For something more casual and unusual than a standard plastic cassette case, how about a printed O-card sleeve to slip your tapes into? They are traditionally referred to as ‘cassingles’ and come with full colour printing on all outer panels and also save a bit of money over standard plastic cases with J-cards, plus they are more environmentally friendly by saving on plastic packaging.

The card stocks available for the O-card are standard gloss, smooth matt, recycled (slightly rougher, a little off-white with a flew flecks), Eco-natural (a rougher texture and greyish in appearance) and brown Manila (a rough texture and brown in appearance). They are all priced the same, but if you want us to use anything other than a plain white matt card then please notify us when ordering.

We can provide small runs of high quality cassettes with your own audio and artwork on for quantities of just 20 tapes or more. We have tape shells available in over 60 different styles or colours (just scroll down to view each one – they can also be mixed colours within a single order for no additional fee) and they are all priced the same.

Benefits of our cassette duplication include:

  • Real time tape duplication on high quality Tascam cassette decks
  • Minimum orders start at just 20 cassettes
  • The cassettes are wound with tape to the exact length that you require
  • O-cards come with full colour printing and are available in five different card stocks (see below)

If you would like your cassettes supplied in protective heat sealed clear shrink wraps then please add £0.10+VAT per cassette.

Some examples of our work:

White cassette tape duplication with black on-body printingOn-body cassette shell printing

If you would like an on-body print directly onto the cassette shell in either black, white or our new gold, silver or red inks rather than the full colour labels then please add £30+VAT to the cost of the order regardless of the number of cassettes being ordered. Just use the same cassette artwork templates for the A and B sides as below and produce your artwork in black and white. The black areas of artwork will be the ones printed out and you will need to specify when ordering if you would like a white or black print onto the cassette shells. Please allow an additional 8 working days for delivery if having on-body cassette printing to allow for the manufacture of the printing plates.

What do I need to know about cassette on-body printing?

Below are the new gold and silver inks that are available for on-body cassette printing:

Cassette tape mailers

Audio cassette tape cardboard mailers

To assist with posting your tapes out, you may wish to consider our card mailers, specifically made to fit a single cassette in a plastic case or O-card. They are strong, rigid, give better protection than a bubble envelope or Jiffy bag and will allow your cassettes to be sent as a large letter size in the UK.

They can either be added to your order for £0.23+VAT each, or can be ordered individually from our online store: www.retrostylemedia.co.uk

The artwork should just be black and white. Only the black areas are printed (whether in black or white ink). Please notify us of your prefered print colour when sending the details of your order.

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 £0.20+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.

Special offer on cassette tape presentation frames

When placing a cassette order with us, you can get 50% off our cassette tape presentation frames when using the tapes from your order and being ordered and delivered at the same time as your main tape order. The frames are fully finished, ready to hang and include additional copies of your release and can even be provided with a full colour printed metal plaque with your artwork on to celebrate the cassette release or as a memento for the band members. The frames can include both a copy of the tape and also the packaging and are available in black or white borders with black or white backgrounds.

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.

Delivery

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.
