Cassette Tapes [draft]

Why order cassette tapes from Furnace Record Pressing?

Cassette tapes are back! Because they never really left. Tapes are cool like vinyl, but more portable! They take up less space in the van, behind the merch table, and they give your fans an affordable way to walk away with your music.

Industry-standard Music Ferric tape offers great bass, warm mid-range, and excellent high-end. Look for our Super-Ferric coming soon!

Tapes come in a ton of cool colors, see below. All shell colors are the same price, so that’s easy. You’re welcome.

Cassette Tape Packaging
Image
Norelco Boxes
The traditional packaging for a cassette is a hard plastic box (Norelco box) with inserted printed album art. Our variety of templates allow you to create a unique package for your cassette release. We also can make a printed sleeve that slides OVER a Norelco box (which is different than the O-card below).
