SP Grab Bags are almost here
« on: Thu, 20 February 2014, 20:27:20 »


The title says it all. Grab bags will be available next week. 2 pounds of straight goodness are on their way. For those interested here is how we are doing it:

1) We will be sending private invitations to anyone participating in a GB on the PMK site first. You will get exclusive first dibs. Just our way of saying thank you for supporting us!

2) Members of our newsletter, will receive second notice. If you haven't registered, but would like to, you can on the new PMK site at http://pimpmykeyboard.com

3) We will be announcing last on our Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Pimp-My-Keyboard/589719521065041. We plan on making lots of exclusive announcements here moving forward. If you want to like the page we would appreciate it!

4) After this we will open the remainder of the inventory for public purchase at http://keyshop.pimpmykeyboard.com

Keep your eyes on inboxes, and thanks again for all your support!

We can just picture someone 'dipping' a scoop into a bin of random key caps to fill up some bags.

I'm assuming they're going up in price since they're making them more "exclusive" and no longer referring to them as "crap bags". :P

Prices are actually going down to $30 per bag. We're also upping the weight to approx. 2.5 pounds per bag.

Price reduction is good.

Increased weight is not good, as that could increase international shipping.

For many of us not in US, shipping cost kills the idea.

Any ideas on what shipping to Australia might be?

And so it came to pass that even if the above post is not necessary, it is here anyway.  Those who saw that it was good, moved on.  Those who saw that it was not good, simply ignored it.  And everyone was happy, even those who did not have an HHKB.

Sounds interesting. I think I'll grab a bag if I still have some spare money when they come out. About how many keys would be in a 2.5 lb bag?

You could always get it shipped to a U.S. person and have them proxy all the interesting keys to you.  I know I can always use random keys people don't want for different projects.

Are those BS caps scattered around? Or a keycap for another switch I've never seen before?

Would you recommend against buying one then?

Well most people receive a few desirable novelty caps but it all depends on what your looking for.

These are great if you just want a bunch of random caps.

Yeah I kind of want them just to play around will all the extras. I'll probably cave and get one anyways.

These are great if you just want a bunch of random caps.

Where random means 80% to 90% black on white and white on black double-shot keycaps with various legends.

Plus a few randmo blue keycaps, some red, some green, some yellow, some orange - I got a dozen or two of each colour.

Plus another dozen or so random colours (brown, aqua, clear).
