Cassette tapes are cool again but what makes the current releases totally worth it are the awesome custom cassette tape packaging. Gone are the days where cassette tapes were just considered a music format. Now, it’s not enough that it contains music because hello! We already have iTunes for that. Cassette tapes should be worth collecting.
The best way to make sure your fans will pull out money from their pockets and actually buy your tapes is by putting them in really cool cassette tape cases.
Check out these lovely cassette tape packaging for inspiration:
PLAYING CARDS CASSETTE TAPE PACKAGING DESIGN
The cassette is placed inside a playing cards case, coming complete with a range of illustrated additions. The design of the case is a beautiful execution in typography and seamlessly ties in the cassette itself thanks to its clever use of colour.
CASSETTE TAPE O-CARD
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.
CIGARETTE CASSETTE TAPE PACKAGING DESIGN
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.
CASSETTE TAPE RIGID AND WOODEN BOX SETS
If you have set of two or more cassettes to release and are after something different to our standard double cassette sets, then our custom box sets could be what you are looking for.
The box sets come in rigid card boxes or wooden boxes with custom foam inserts for holding the tapes securely in place and they provide a premium packaging option that many collectors seek and allow you to market as a premium product.
CASSETTE TAPE CARDBOARD MAILER PACKAGING
This is like an envelope where you can house your tape. It’s a pretty neat way to have a unique case if you want your tape to stand out from the shelf.
