The Duplication.ca Guide to Cassette Box Sets and Double Cassettes

Double cassette cases at Duplication.ca

Do you have an album so big that one cassette alone could not possibly handle it? Double cassette releases are always exciting, but how do you go about packaging them? Don’t worry, we’ve got your back.

Wet Tuna, released by Baked Tapes

Triple cassette box available from Duplication.ca

Multi-Cassette Box

This sleek design works like a Norelco case with the two cassettes sitting side-by-side. Its longer length makes it size comparable to that of a CD case, making it easy to store and easy on the eyes. An extra large double-sided J-card allows you to go nuts with the artwork, pack in as much detail and information as possible!

View the double cassette boxes on the online store

Our triple cassette boxes are even longer in length but keep the same width. Unlike the double cassette boxes they do not have posts.

"MTL Tapes" released by La Cohu and packaged in a Triple Cassette Album from Duplication.ca

Cassette Albums

If you’re a fan of the classic audio book packaging style, look no further than our cassette albums. These packages contain a transparent wraparound film for you to slip in a larger trapsheet in lieu of a J-card. We even have albums that hold up to EIGHT CASSETTES, if you can believe it.

Disso Vol. One

Double Norelcos

Double Norelcos are exactly as they sound– two Norelcos joined at the hip! They open on both sides “butterfly style,” meaning it facilitates two J-cards. This is perfect for releasing two separate albums that require different artwork in one package.

If you’re planning a run of 100 units or more, take advantage of our special offer. 100pcs for $60 CAD / $45.50 USD!

October 2018 cassette round-up

On a personal note, I love October. I love the crisp autumn weather, I love secluding myself at night and binging on horror movies, and more than anything I love stepping on crunchy leaves while listening to new tapes on my Walkman. Here’s are some personal favourite Duplication.ca jammers from the month of October!

R. Stevie Moore – “Homers” c62

Outsider artist R. Stevie Moore returns with this reissue of his 1973 self-release. If you’ve never done the deep dive of the weird ‘n wild world of RSM this is as good as any place to start!

Andrew Weathers / Blaine Todd – Split c44

A melancholic but surprisingly relaxing split cassette that wavers between post-rock and experimental folk. Fans of Six Organs of Admittance and Jackie-O Motherfucker will love it.

Plastic Cactus – “Moth Eyes” c17

Atmospheric dry desert rock, and like a mirage it moves into psych ‘n surf territory. Full of rad Thee Oh Sees style riffs at 0.6x speed!

Courtney Barnett – “Tell Me How You Really Feel” c44

If you can’t dig Courtney Barnett you can’t dig nothin’. A+ Melbourne slackerdom, and if that doesn’t sell it for you, maybe the Kim Deal backing vocals will.

Appropriate Savagery – “Elegant In Its Brutality” c26
Anasisana – “Sad For The Rest of My Life” c34

Another gorgeous batch by California label Casement Exchange. Both tapes swing between chaos and beauty, must grabs for fans of minimalism. Can’t choose between the two of them, they’re both quintessential October graveyard wandering music.

Summer daze

If you’re back in school this September you may find yourself sitting in class reflecting on the summer that just ended. Concerts, parties, unbearably hot weather, and everything in between. Looking back at the past few months at Duplication.ca, I gotta say, this was a hell of a summer.

The big news is that we’ve massively expanded our CD and printing department. After 30 years of business we’ve acquired a new production space in Scarborough, Ontario, allowing us to increase our CD replication and duplication production. And it’s not just the sheer volume of jobs that’s improved, but the overall quality of the products and printing as well. We’ve got one of the best silkscreen technicians in the world meticulously working on your CD orders to make sure the colours are perfect. Our new offset printer is out of this world, allowing us to create new packaging solutions to your album releases at the highest quality.

Of course, we’re not limited to just CD-related production. We’re printing books, magazines, catalogues, and even large vinyl banners. Check out this behemoth:

One thing we’re particularly psyched about is our new cardboard sleeves. We love ’em because they’re high quality at a very affordable cost. These sleeves are thicker and sturdier than ever before, with higher resolution print than what we previously offered. And depending on how big you want to go, we have 2-panel, 4-panel, and 6-panel options.

So, yeah, a pretty good summer. We want to share our excitement so we’re throwing a little sale. We’re offering free standard shipping to North America on every CD replication order with 2-panel cardboard sleeve packaging! This offer expires September 14th, so you better hurry.
