Pad printing on cassettes is a specialty service only offered at duplication.ca. It is a slow semi-automatic process using opaque pad printing inks. The results are quite different than what is obtained using high-speed offset machines.
Tip: It is probably cheaper to order our highspeed duplication service instead of buying blank tapes and asking us to print on them.
If you do insist on getting printed blank cassettes, you should order 20% more cassettes than you want. If you want 100 printed tapes, order 120 cassettes.
Here is the price list for custom pad printing on blank audio cassettes all in Canadian dollars:

Press setup for other colors: $50
Pad printing (per side)
Each print: $0.40
Double-hits add $0.10

A plate can be good for 1000 or more prints. There is no guarantee that plates will be usable on reorders.
