  Other Details

CURRENCY: Our base is in Canada but most of our customers are outside Canada. This price calculator is based on Canadian dollars and has daily currency updates in USD, GBP, AUD, and Euro. You can pay us in any of those currencies using PayPal (including most credit cards). The default currency on this page is US dollars.


MASTERS: For fastest service supply 1 WAV or AIFF file per side.

If you supply individual songs please prefix the names with A01 etc as follows:
A01, A02, A03...A10, A11 etc... for the A side, and B01, B02, B03... B13 etc.. for the B side. It is important to use that "0" in A01, otherwise A10 might come before A1.

Try to supply all tracks at the same sampling rate. You have to tell us if you want to adjust the spaces between the songs. In most cases the files are butted together with no extra space added between songs. In other words, whatever silence you want between songs is already built into the tracks. Very often when MP3 files are supplied, whatever program that was used to create the MP3s adds a fraction of a second of silence at the head and tail of every song. If you have a seamless mix then obviously this will sound pretty lame with a dropout between the songs, and we all waste a lot of time trying to get it fixed.

PROOFING AUDIO: If we have to compile the tracks, you can request an MP3 proof for approval. This proof cost is $35. We will send you an MP3 of each side for approval. We can proceed AS-IS without a proof. NB: If you supply 1 file per side then there's no need for a proof.

TEST TAPES: Test tapes will take approximately 1 week to produce and only include the audio. We will then mail the test tape to you. Turntime starts after you approve the test tape. You can request Express air shipping of the test tape for $25 in North America or $40 overseas. You can also specify the Rip to MP3 option to save shipping time. With this option we will transfer the cassette back to a digital MP3 or WAV.

TEST TAPE WITH GRAPHICS: To produce a printed product sample we have to do all the print setups including films, plates, press setup, scoring and die-cutting. The cost depends on the product configuration - pad printing and full-bleed O-Cards cost quite a lot to run twice. J-Cards on standard paper and paper labels are not too expensive. Ask your rep for a quote if you feel you need a printed sample before full production. It might take 3 weeks to complete a product sample.

MASTERING: In-house editing services are available. One common task is to correct the loudness of the individual songs on compliations. Adjusting spaces, de-essing, high-frequency limiting, filtering, compression, resampling, etc... ask for a quote. Minimum CAD$80.


Pad print option : Pad printing uses opaque ink. We can make it even more opaque by doing a double-hit (surcharge of 5 cents per print). Every cassette is placed on the machine by hand so it takes more labour than the high-speed offset machines. Offset printing on cassette (which we don't offer) uses inks that are not as opaque with limited artistic appeal.

** Your art file must use black to represent the ink colour **


We are just getting started with 2 colour pad printing. Art has to be supplied in colour-separated layers. The extra cost is CAD$60 for 1 side, $90 for 2 sides for orders up to 200 pieces. Over 200 pieces add an additional 5 cents per print.

2 color pad print


With real-time duplication we QC a few seconds of the A side on every cassette, and do a spot check on the B-sides. High-speed duplication includes a spot check on about 1 out of 50 tapes.


J-Cards: Standard paper stock: 100 lb coated paper (like CD covers). Our J-Cards are printed with full bleeds on all sides and include scoring and folding of the spine. They are not done on perforated sheets.

Also available with additional fee of 10 cents per cover ( minimum $25 ):
- 24 lb linen paper
- 100 lb smooth uncoated text
- 80 lb gold metallic text ( sample)
- 80 lb White Enviro uncoated cover (thick, a challenge to fold more than a J)
- 12 pt Tango white C2S (coated both sides, difficult to fold)
* Large orders of 500 or more may need a custom quote
- 20 lb pink
- 20 lb blue

  O-CARDS - Authentic Cassingle-Style with 15 point board


We do professional O-Card printing even for small runs. Offset-printed on 15 point board in full colour, diecut and glued. The 15 point O-Cards are rigid so they can be shrinkwrapped without getting all bent out of shape, and being offset-printed they don't have the toner-melt and toner-cracking problems. Click on the images below to see our pro-quality O-Cards.

O-CardPro O-Cards

For 250 or less we have digital-printed O-Cards on 14 point board. These digital O-Cards are still printed full-bleed and are diecut. All of our O-Cards are diecut with a tapered glue-flap so there is no unsightly white edge sticking out.

We can also do even very small runs on our precut blanks on an inkjet printer.

chipboard o-cards

The inkjet O-cards are printed in standard mode so there is some minor banding. High-res photo mode printing is available for CAD$0.50 more per O-card. Inkjet O-cards will have an unprintable margin alll around.

NEW! We now offer 1 and 2 colour offset printing with optional raised print. Line art is recommended. With this sample below with heavy black ink we had to use the raised print process to cure the ink, otherwise it would never dry. Ask us for a quote on this process (budget $200+ for offset printing with raised print).

Monday to Friday are counted as production days. Rush service does not include shipping time. In most cases shipping is from Montreal. Toronto pickups will be ready at the end of the next day. Express noon delivery to Toronto is available for a $25 courier fee.

Day "0" starts when your material is submitted and payment is made. If you order a test tape then production resumes after you approve the test tape. To save time you can order the Rip to MP3 option. Artwork must be ready to print. If there are any problems with your artwork we may not be able to start any production until you correct it. The cutoff time to enter rush orders is noon. If your material and payment is entered after noon, day "0" will be the next day.

3 day turn means the order should be ready to ship at 4:30 PM after 3 business days. An order placed Monday would be ready to ship Thursday. Contact us if you need faster service.
