Do you have a great idea for a new keycap set? A new keyboard case? A whole new keyboard layout? Do you want to run a group buy for your idea, but don’t know where to start, or are unable to manage the entire process alone? We’re happy to help!
Our combined passion and knowledge grants us the opportunity to extend a helping hand. Through partnerships or commissions, we provide a number of services drawing from our pooled knowledge and skill base.
Flat Graphics & Novelties
Often used early in an Interest Check’s timeline and integrated as backgrounds for 3D Renders and the overall style of a Group Buy. Flat graphics offer flexibility, easy adjustment, and quick turnaround that accommodate the fluidity of an early design while it’s still being finalized for and during the Interest Check. This allows for quick, low cost changes, whether it’s a color change, a keycap type change, or changing the style of the legends.
We offer this service for both keycap design and case design. As part of keycap design, we will help design and revise novelty key designs and provide the files used by the manufacturer once your group buy is complete. Prices are based on each individual design, the number of keycap kits and novelty keys, and total revision count. Our designer can help you through the process if you are interested in taking advantage of this service.
Typically used later in an Interest Check’s timeline or at the beginning of the Group Buy phase, 3D Renders communicate details that Flat Graphics cannot. The shape and texture of keycaps are better brought to life, the true size of a keyboard case design is easier to relate to, and finishes like wood, anodizing metals, and powder-coating are more accurately represented, instead of being left to the imagination.
We offer this service for both keycap design and case design. As part of case design, the finalized design can include the working schematics that are used to build the case once your group buy is completed. Please contact us to learn more and to discuss directly with our designer what you would like to build. Prices are based on each individual design and its needs, and our designer can help you through the process.
Have a great idea? Intimidated by the group buy process? We can help you through any or all of the steps. There’s a lot to do from the start to the end of a group buy, and even beyond what often feels like the end. As passionate enthusiasts within the keyboard community, we don’t just enjoy these processes, but the challenges that often come with them.
Whatever reason you may need help, feel free to reach out to us. We hate seeing this process stop great ideas from being realized, and we hate the poor experience some buyers have had with group buys in the past. We can assist with any of the steps in the process shown below, as well as assist with post-buy customer support issues that often crop up.
It all starts with an idea. Through early designs with flat artwork or even 3d renders, we can help you flesh out your group buy's identity and present it to the community.
It's time to generate hype! Before a group buy begins, interest checks are run to gauge interest and take in feedback from potential buyers about the design and price.
The design is done, the manufacturer source, let's go! We operate a secure, fully featured site capable of handling the entire purchase process for your group buy.
The buy is complete, and now it's time to make it real. We can help you work with the chosen manufacturer and update all buyers with progress reports.
It's time to get the product to the customers! From the warehouse to the distribution point, and finally to the customer, we can help or manage this process for you.
