Minimum Order is 100 cassettes. "C" times are based on total time of the longest side of the cassette. For example, a C-30 cassette is 15-minutes per side. All cassettes are loaded to the exact length of the longest side of your program. We duplicate on normal-bias music quality tape on all projects.

ORDERING: Send materials or inquires to: m2com@aol.com .
Here is a sample of the information (Word doc) we need to begin your order. All orders should be accompanied with this information. Production time is currently 2 to 3 weeks. Production time is NOT guaranteed.


All orders are subject to our acceptance and our terms and conditions.



MASTER FORMATS
Acceptable Master Tape Formats

Help us to duplicate for you a cassette of exceptional performance that Cassette Works is known for, by providing us with the best source master available to you.

Our mastering facilities can handle most types of mastering formats. These include: audio-cassette masters; compact disc; wav files; and digital audio tape (DAT).

Your master(s) should be "program-ready" and with the time for each side given.

When uploading files, try to send two complete files; one for each side rather than a file for each track. Avoid using Rapidshare or mediafire for uploads. Try a better service like wetransfer.com, dropbox.com, yousendit.com or sendspace.com for quicker results.


ADDITIONAL ONE-TIME CHARGES
Imprinting

Currently (November 2017) we have the following color shells:
  • White
  • Clear
We also have some premium colors for an additional .10 each:
  • Translucent Red (with a black liner)
  • Translucent Blue (with a black liner)
  • Translucent Green (with a black liner)
  • Translucent Yellow (with a black liner)
For best results, the Clear and premium color shells should be printed with white or light color inks.

If a color becomes unavailable we will substitute a tape color as close to the one you requested at our discretion. For example, a translucent blue may become a solid blue.


Imprinting adds 6 per cassette whether you request one-sided or two-sided printing. There is a minimum $20.00 charge for this service.

When designing your label art, keep in mind that reverses do not reproduce well. All art must be in black on a white background. The black will be printed in the color you select. Also, fine lines, screens, and text below 8pt do not reproduce well.

Below are templates for cassette imprinting in three formats:
