Some of them already come with cassette players!

Remember the stuff we used to make for our crushes back in high school? Yup, mixtapes are slowly coming back! Apart from providing the sentimental and nostalgic feel of curating and listening to music via cassette players, people have now taken tape covers to another level. You can freely design it anyway you want as the perfect gift for your friends, family, or your special someone.

It’s simple! Send them a list of songs arranged in your preferred order through a playlist or a written list. The number of tracks may vary, as long as their total playtime won’t exceed 60 minutes. You can also add a voice message or an original song for an extra personal touch!

The most exciting part, of course, is designing the cassette tape cover. Start by choosing a tape color from the available options: red, blue, yellow, black, white, or a clear case. Make a cover by designing your own artwork, asking someone for a commission, or simply sending the shop photos you already have. Don’t worry about design mistakes because they have a template to guide you. For inspiration, try to scroll through the shop’s Instagram to see how creative the customers have been with their orders.
