Prices for 2018

Cassette prices (except for ECP Bulk C-40, C-46) depend on tape length. The table shows prices in Russian roubles for a recorded cassette of 21-40 min. If the tape length is less than 21 min., subtract 3 RUR. If the length is 41-60 min., add 5 RUR, for 61-80 min. - 10 RUR, for 81-100 min. - 15 RUR. The exact price can be found using calculator.

NB! Tape length is calculated as the length of the longer side increased by 30 sec. and multiplied by 2. Thus, if the longest side of the master record is 30 min., a C-61 cassette (61 min. total length = (30 min. + 30 sec)*2) is required.

Please upload your master files as 2 tracks, one per side: A.wav and B.wav. Joining separate tracks into master files - from 300 RUR, depending on complexity.

If the tapes are ordered without recording, the price is reduced by 10 roubles.

TECHNICAL DETAILS

Master files are accepted in WAV or MP3 format (44.1 или 48 kHz), 16/24/32 bits, stereo. Preparing master tracks please avoid excessive levels of low frequencies (below 150 Hz). Before recording on tape we check the phonogram and make premastering if needed. You can always check the master tracks by sending them to us in advance.

NB! Remember that for different types of shells there may be different sticker templates: at the moment, the Classic Sticker template is recommended for use with golden, silver, black with screws, ECP bulk and recycle cassettes; the Sticker With Angles Cut template is for use with apricot cassettes; the Sticker Wide template is for all other types of shells. If you're not sure which template is suitable for you, you can always consult us on this question.

We expect the files for printing to be preferably in AI, EPS or PDF formats. Preparing the layout use CMYK colour scheme and do not forget to convert all the fonts into curves and add bleed margins (3 mm). Cutting and bending lines are not required (they can be added, but in a separate layer).

NB! Please place the text and important graphical elements no closer than in 2 mm from the cutting line, since the cutter's precision is 1-2 mm.

Layout and design services are discussed individually.
