Make Modern Day Mixtapes with Milktape

Ah, the mix tape. I remember getting so excited to get a mix tape from a boyfriend or a best friend growing up. It was just about one of the best gifts one could get, especially when it introduced you to new music or every song conveyed emotion. To this day, there are songs that I associate with mix tapes I’ve received over the years. I wish I had hung on to all of them…

Well, maybe we can bring some of that nostalgia back with Milktape, a company that makes modern day mixtapes using cassette tape-shaped USBs complete with cover and plastic case, so you can make it extra personal.

Each tape holds about 15 songs and can be used with PC or Mac. You just drag and drop from your iTunes. Also included is the old school plastic case with two stickers. They cost about the same as an album, too – $15, and they’ll ship anywhere.

I know what I’ll be getting my friends this holiday season…
