With a bit more experience, this article could go more in depths...

Some labels claim to release pro tapes, while it's half home made... The "pro tape" term tends to dissolve and mean various things: Pro duplicated tapes, colored tapes without labels to be copied at home, regular supermarket tapes with pro covers, pro duplicated tapes with xeroxed covers etc

Sometimes I'm not sure to understand what some peoples do: A rehearsal recording released on pro duplicated tape, with xeroxed cover... Huh??

You can't be sure tapes with a sticker = pro tapes...

Order 100 black tapes, make copies, and put stickers... Is it pro tapes?

Actually you will spend less money if you manufacture them than if you buy tapes do the stickers and all other stuff.
To press 100 tapes is almost the same price as to buy 100 tapes...
here in Montenegro Im buying one tape for 0,80 euro.....
To press 100 tapes with postage you will give 120 euros..

Yes, some peoples release prooo tapes... So they immediately ask you to order their very limited underwears! No more trades, no more anything... ORDER NOW!

For your next release, you should do a special Die hard package limited to 1 copy, and keep it for yourself! Ah Ah

Fuck ebay (And other) speculators, they won't get any copy!

Labels should make some kind of special e bay edition that will sell only on e bay for 666 euros...only real will sold the house and buy few copies and after few years steal the job of William Henry Gates...

Im just afraid that only shop in Montenegro where I buy blank tapes could be closed ...in that case I will start to produce pro tapes...and of course Gab i would expect some "do not support this poser" flyers around hahah.....

Even if it closes down,
you could order blank tapes through tapeline in Uk...
If you order by 50 or 100, price for each would be less than 1 euro.

whoah.. reading stuff like that makes me think im lucky to be where i am. in my city (its not very big around 300 000 people) there are several (at least 4) stores that sell cheap brand new tapes for $1 a piece (canadian $ is usually a bit less than american $). the problem is usually finding the length you need - 60 vs 90 minutes. the one time i ordered tapes online (with custom lengths/colours) it came to about $2 for each tape, including the shipping and the import duties i had to pay.

other than that, we are planning a release on second-hand tapes, going to get some old tapes at a thrift store (10 tapes for $1) and redub them.
