[SHIPPED] Tai Hao 110 Coloured DS Set GB
« on: Mon, 20 May 2013, 20:07:54 »
The Schedule: UPDATE: October 3rd
  • Invoicing: Deadline will be July 31st, 2013 (May extend few more days for people with monthly paycheques)
  • Payment Submission to Tai Hao: 1-3 days after payment deadline after I sort everything out
  • Production Lead Time: Around 6 weeks for them to produce and pack each set into individual bags
  • Shipping to me: After production, shipping to me will take around 4 weeks. Some may get it sooner because I'm sending some directly to some people with large orders (>100 sets) - I am getting the shipment on October 25th
  • Shipping to you: After I received the key cap sets, I will start packing and shipping them out. May take a week to ship them all.
  • So all in all, I'll get the caps maybe end of September or early October. - due to some delays, the estimate was a bit off


DEADLINE FOR PAYMENT: AUGUST 2, 2013

ORDER CONFIRMATION  <---- Check your order here

**ATTENTION: An extra $1 per set is  being added for extra keys to support the 7x space bar on the bottom row for winkeyless layout.  The keys included in the $1 will be four (4) 1.5x and two (2) 1x key. The keys mentioned will be blank. If you have any questions, let me know. I apologize for this late change - but for only a $1 more, you get 6 more keys. It's worth every penny!



All sets include 104 OEM key caps.  All sets will include blank 1.25x windows keys and menu keys. Size 6.25x space bars are not included in this group buy.  Only 7x space bar is available per set.  All text on the keys are white. The MOQ is 500 for each colour, so minimum order will have to have at least 2 sets.

**MOQ for black, green, and yellow is now 400!

UPDATE/INFORMATION:

1. I should have been firm about this earlier, but I have to drop the 5x space bar. Each space bar colour needs to meet the 500 MOQ as well. So with the 2 different space bars and 5 different colours, it's impossible to get 5000 space bars altogether...

2. Changed the order form a bit.  Made it less confusing..

3. Shipping fee from the supplier to me will be spread amongst the orders.

4. Picture

5. 3 sets will be under 1 LB. - 111g (0.245 lb) x 3 sets =  333g (0.74 LB) + weight of box - should be under 1LB
6-7 sets should be under 2.2 LB
10-11 sets should be under 3.3 LB

6. If you  really need a 6.25x size space bar, you can get it at WASDkeyboards.com
http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/spacebar-cherry-mx-keycap.html

7. Payment process will begin AFTER we reach the MOQ for all 5 colours -  I will see how this GB progress after a month and make some decisions.

8. The many possible colour layouts you can do to your sets! The pictures do not accurately depict the actual sets (font and 6.25x space bar are one of them).  These are just some of them!

Yeah, I will need your information for shipping and paypal.

People, you need to choose your space bars as they are included with each set.  Pick 1 space bar for each set you order. 

Example: 5 sets ordered, pick 5 space bars.

They are included, so might as well take them.

Okay, I realized it's very confusing and complicated to have 2 space bars to choose from..I'm going to remove 5x..

QFR = 6.25x space bar.

I wondered whether a 7x could be cut to size.

Elton its too late men, I saw the sizing of the space bars and choose 0, really I don't need any of those sizes.... I did choose 1 of each set and don't care what spacebar size you include with the sets.

EDIT: I saw you asked about the Win keys and the page key if we want to have them printed or blank, honestly I don't care about that either cause even if they are printed they wont get used up much, they never get any usage practically. But if majority wants blanks, fine by me, blanks are just fine, these sets are a deal and a half and don't brake the wallet like others.

Ordered - 1 of each :)

Hopefully the minimum of 2 per person is overall and not per colour.

Placed an order for two sets of each color, except black and forgot to choose spacebars. If you want to put 7x's on all my orders that's cool.

Ok, if space bars are left blank, I'll make 7x the default space bar.

Which common keyboards use 5x and 7x spacebars?  Just trying to figure out what I'd do with a spacebar from this set (my current one is a 6.25)

I've seen this list, but it's far from complete.

If there's a 7x spacebar, will there be 1.5 mods to go with it?

That will cost extras for 1.5x blank mods.

Not sure.. I know custom winkeyless keyboards uses 7x

Might be this

I don't have any. When I asked, they sent me a paper copy of what's included or not on the set. They're made to order, I'd guess.

Only the windows and menu keys are blank. They are unable to double shot them. The rest are double shots.

In for a couple sets. Hopefully we can hit the minimums. I hope black sticks around might save me $90 if they are good enough compared to cherry's.

Black is still in, but as the MOQ is 500 and black had the least interest, it might not read MOQ.

Ouch, that shipping.  It actually seems like it's just as expensive to ship within Canada as it is to ship to Canada, but a lot more expensive to ship to the US.  If I were to get it, could I ask to drop the spacebars if it's going to edge over 1lb?

I can take out your space bar if it goes over.
