J-Card, U-Card, and O-Card Templates

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’ve also re-introduced the O-Card, the common packaging for a “Cassingle.”

National Audio prints J-Cards in six configurations: 3-Panel, 4-Panel, 5-Panel, 6-Panel, 7-Panel and 8-Panel. We can also produce U-Cards in 3-, 4- and 5-Panels. All can be printed full color, full bleed both sides on heavy stock – 4-C process colors only. O-Cards are printed one-sided on card stock. Please refer to the Artwork Guidelines for how to use templates and submit your artwork for production.
