Free Vector Compact Audio Cassette Tapes


Even though I still have a whole bunch of compact audio cassette tapes lying around, I don’t remember the last time I used one; but hey, just as LP records, audio cassettes can still be cool elements in designs. So here are five vector cassette tapes I’ve made: two black, one white and two transparent in which the mechanisms are visible.

As you can see in the screens below each compact cassette is different and being that they are vectors you can easily change them to your designing needs. Also if you need some LP images you can grab some from my previous post here. The download links are at the bottom. If you find these vector audio cassettes useful don’t forget to leave a comment. Thanks!

    I still got over 600 tapes which I use almost daily. I play them at work or take them with me in my slim panasonic walkman. I even record my favorite HD radio dance music and chill wave show every saturday and sunday nights. I record off internet and sound is amazing when i play it back thanks to my hi-end devices. way powerful and louder than MP3 or CD. just recently bought another 10 pack of tapes last night at best buys. tapes are awesome design for music especially its longetivety and durability in music storage.

  33. Thanks so much for sharing these vector tapes. I was about to have a shot at doing a tape myself when I discovered these.

    What is your stance on altering these works? I may create extra labels or change the shading.

    • You may edit and use them as long as they are a part/aid of an original design. For instance it would not be ok to just change something like the labels and then sell the tape images by themselves. They would have to be part of your original concept. Feel free to email me if you have any questions. :)

  34. hello. thanks for sharing, it’s great! nice page :)

  35. Great job!!! It’s much appreciated that you passed this along to the world!
