Do you have a time machine?

Just kidding but you might have an easier time finding a used duplication machine than you will finding someone to do the job. There's one on ebay right now.

The funny thing is, cassettes are still hanging on and I've been told they are even experiencing a "renaissance" of sorts. The black metal scene is fond of cassette releases and I was in a local record store recently and noticed a couple of new cassette releases on the wall, one of which was by the experimental electronic composer, Fennesz.

I imagine there is someone out there doing this?

A simple Google search yields results. Looks like Rainbo still does it:

Only place that came up I ever heard of.

A lot of the Google search results regarding this topic are useless. Loads of places still have the duplicators, but don't have the materials. I tried to get a quote for cassette duplication from my rep at Rainbo and was ignored.

These are the two places I've found that still do it:

Short run:

Larger runs:

Good luck! It's a a fun format that lots of people still have a nostalgic attachment to. There are some very, very cool releases coming out on cassette these days. Don't forget your download codes!

Yeah, that kind of makes sense. I'm a former veteran of the salt mine of mass high end cassette duplication. Haven't kept up with what the state of things.
We used to get in pallets of great pancakes of 1/8 BASF and TDK. It may be hard to acquire such things these days. And parts for the machines?
Once upon a time the industry was gravitating towards not so 1st world countries. These days I'm sure even that market is kaput!
