- What's New?
We will have more Grab Bags up for sale by the end of the month. The exact date and time will be announced later. These bags include keys from SA Industrial, SA Grade, SA Photostudio, SA Dasher/Dancer, SA Lime, DSA Ice Cream, DSA Beyond, DSA Miami Dolch, DCS Percent as well as some SA-P prototypes.
|DSA "Beyond" Keyset||
DSA Beyond! Inspired by the popular movie and made specifically for the Ortholinear and Planck keyboards. Brought to you courtesy of HamKenobi. Available Friday 8/17.
|SA "Lime" Keyset||
SA double-shot sculptured keyset available near the end of August.
The new SA-P tooling is very close to being production ready. First article parts are being evaluated and sublimation fixtures are being fabricated. We are targeting the end of July or the first part of August for the first sublimated sets to be available. SA-P "Industrial" Keyset will be the first production keyset. It will first be offered as a sculptured R1,1,2,3,4,4 keyset. Shortly after an all R3 option and a sculptured R1,1,2,3,4,3 option will be available.
Sample packs containing 7 random blank keys will also be available for $2.00 plus shipping for those wanting to view the keys before purchasing keysets.
The SA-P keys have a fine textured finish on the top and sides of the keys similar to the G20 family. We will only be offering SA-P keys in PBT as either blank keys or sublimated keys. ABS keys or two-shot keys will not be options with this tooling.
|SA "Industrial" and "Grade" Keysets||
We will not be producing any sublimated keysets in SA except for Ice Cap until the new SA-P tooling is completed.
During the Seattle Mechanical Keyboard Meetup on January 13th, Melissa was able to share samples of our long retired DSS keycap family with several of you. Since there appeared to be interest in producing this family again, we have decided to go ahead and tool up several shapes that are missing from today's keyboard configurations. We hope to have this tooling completed over the next few months.
|SA-P (New PBT tooling)||
Over the past several months we have been building new SA sculptured PBT tooling that will be used exclusively for sublimation printing.
The original two-shot ABS keys and the new PBT key profiles will look identical. However, the finish on the SA-P keys will have a very fine matte finish as opposed to the more glossy 2-shot ABS keys.
Full payment is required in advance before scheduling a Group Buy for production.
Please do not email Melissa to find out the status of a Group Buy. The Group Buy organizer can update you on the status from their communication with Melissa.
Generally, orders are scheduled as they are received but production lead time won't be given until full payment has been received.
DSA two-shot sets - 6 to 8 weeks depending on size
Stock blank sets - within 3 business days from receipt of order.
Orders placed after 1:00 PM Pacific Time on Thursday will not be processed until the following week.
Please do not email Melissa to find out when additional sets will be available. She will no longer be answering these emails. We will announce, either through an email or in "What's New", when sets will be available prior to putting them in inventory.
There are two options when ordering Extra Keys:
1. Extra Keys - Existing Legend/Color/Size. If you simply want to add an additional key to a keyset with a different color key to your purchase, without making a legend change, keys are $5.00 each. Use the "NOTES" section at Checkout to indicate the key size and the color you want. You can purchase any extra key that exists in our DSA sublimated sets, even if you are not ordering the set that it comes in, however extra keys must be purchased with a kit.
2. Extra Keys - Existing Legend/Color - New Size. If you want to add an additional key to a keyset with a different legend description than what is offered in the set, keys are $10.00 each. There is no additional charge if the desired key is a different color as well. Note however that the text on the key must already be in a set that we make. Ex. You want a 2u SHIFT key, this is currently offered as a 1u, 1.75u, 2.25u and 2.25u key - requesting New Size means you will get this key as a 2 space key.
Keys previously manufactured for Custom Keysets and Group Buys may be purchased individually as long as supply lasts. These keys sell for $10.00 each plus shipping. The only keys available will be for sets listed for sale on the website. Sets not listed are not available for individual key sales.
When checking out, you must identify in the "NOTES" section the name of the kit that includes the key, plus the description and size of the key. If the key you are requesting is not in inventory, your money will be refunded.
