Label and Imprint Templates

The templates here are to be used to place your artwork for imprinting or labeling your cassette shells. Choose the correct template for the software you use. Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop are the recommended applications to use.

See the Guidelines for details about inserting your artwork into the template and sending the files with your cassette order.

Since most of our shells have a common printable area, we have standardized on ONE Universal template which works well with almost any CLEAR, TINTED OR SOLID-COLOR shell we have in stock (including White and Black). Only the colors Barney Purple and Clear w/Red Foil Liner have a different window placement that may require a different template.

CassetteImprintTemplate-WhiteSolid_Thumb The drawing to the left shows how the imprintable area falls on the cassette shell. A hidden layer in the template contains these shell edge lines. You may use it to visualize your design. Please leave hidden when submitting artwork.
CassetteImprintTemplate-WhiteSolid_Thumb Use this template for imprint art whether you have chosen a solid color, clear or tinted color shell.

NAC_CassetteLabel_THUMB Use this template to lay out labels if your tape design requires multiple colors or a large degree of ink coverage. Some people also like to customize individual labels by hand.
PLEASE NOTE: Our label stock has changed, so the template is a little different in shape now. Please update the label template you use.
