This is a GB thread originally from these ICs
http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=56825.0
http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=56422.0

Thank you for everyone that has participated in these ICs


ARRIVED

discovered that all the 7x spacebar has a wrong colour....
also, they have given us the old 7x spacebar which is the non-amended one that doesnt fit cherry keyboard

have communicated with taihao
they produce new spacebar immediately and will send them out to me in 2 days
so our progress should not be delayed for too long!











The order form has been closed. To pick up a defaulted order or an extra set, please PM me.



FOR PPL WHO ARE CONFUSED ABOUT RECEIVING TWO INVOICES

For those who have already paid:
as there are only a really small batch of orders that has already paid
i think its ok as thats only a small amount of deficit
i'd rather cover it myself than sending email that may cause me huge workload :'(
so   leave it alone     everythings fine
no extra works have to be done

For those who have not paid:
please pay according to the second invoice



Final Order Confirmation
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1UydoIJ3lIzLmZun3cgDIy6cPixTQD46Mky8OvrW1NGA/edit?usp=sharing

Please check your order information (and also the total sum needed to be paid) before I start sending out invoices.

The total sum is calculated this way:
ANSI = No. of ANSI ordered * $15
ANSI SHIPPING = $5 for the first ANSI, $3 each for the rest
ADDON = No. of Add-ons ordered * $6
ADDON SHIPPING = No. of Add-ons * 1.5
TRACKING = $3 if Yes, $0 if No
SUBTOTAL = ANSI + ANSI SHIPPING + ADDON + ADDON SHIPPING + TRACKING
TOTAL SUM WITH PAYPAL FEE ADDED = SUBTOTAL * 104.4% + $0.3

If your row has been highlighted GREEN,
I have changed your order information according to your PM.
As there are too many PMs, I might have missed some messages,
or have misunderstood some messages, or have forgotten to change your order.
Please PM me again if there's any problem.

If your row has been highlighted RED,
There's something missing or wrong in your order. This happens because one of the following reasons:
 1. your address is not detailed enough for international shipment (according to my local postoffice's standard).
     normally, it's because you didn't include your country.
 2. you have submitted an empty form (i.e. you have ordered nothing)
 3. your forum ID is wrong

Please PM me your amended personal information or amended order information.

I have deleted the rows of those who have dropped out. If you still find yourself in the list, please let me know too.

I will start sending out invoices soon and that will be another (and the last) chance for you guys to confirm the personal information.

Glad that finally we can proceed to the next stage of the buy!
Thx for everyone's support  :thumb:

The following  are the specifications, price and the shipping of the keysets


Quote
Keycap Manufacturer        : Taihao Taiwan
Keycap Material               : ABS
Keycap Printing Method    : Double Shot Injection
Keycap Profile                 : OEM Profile


Quote
Optional Sets

ANSI + Stepped Capslock | MOQ of each colour: 300
104 ANSI Winkey Layout
1 * Cherry Stepped Capslock

Price : $14 $15

Re-Confirming the price with Tai Hao sales for this set today
$0.5 more is needed for the cost to add the stepped capslock
with the currency change and shipment from taihao to me, $1 is added

i will send an email to everyone who placed their order
to make sure they notice about this


Add-On Pack | MOQ of each colour: 100
2 * 1.5x Ctrl
2 * 1.5x Alt
2 * 1x R1 Blank Key (1x window key)
1 * 7x Spacebar

1 * 1.75 Shift
1 * 1.25x Shift
2 * 1x ~# and |\  (for ISO)
1 * ISO Enter



Price : $6

Taihao cannot provide us a Window Logo due to Copyright Problem
Therefore, only Blank 1.25x can be provided


This add-on pack should be the first ISO / tsangan keycaps that taihao produce.

It will be a wise choice to get one, adding $6, you can apply the whole set on MUCH more keyboard and have better reselling potential


Great thanks to whiskytango for providing this balancing method of pricing in tiers

FAQ (constantly updating )

Quote
1.) How much do i have to pay?
For example, if u are getting 1 Dolch ANSI set along with 1 Dolch add-on pack, will tracking number
let how much u need to pay be x
x - (x * 4.4% + $0.3 ) = ($14 $15 + $(4.5 - 13.5) $6 + $5 + $1.5 + $3)
$14 $15 for one Dolch ANSI
$( 4.5 - 13.5 ) for the add-on pack by tier
$6 for each add-on pack
$5 for shipping
$1.5 for adding an add-on pack
$3 for tracking

solving the equation,
x should be $32.22

Quote
2.) When will this GB ends?

31th May, 2014



Quote
3.) When will we move on to stage 2?

From the start of this GB, until 31th May,
as long as the order of the currently GB keycaps meets the MOQ,
we will move on to the next stage

For ANSI sets, if they are in stock, the MOQ is 100, otherwise its 300. (i will confirm with taihao about the MOQ, but 300 is the maximum MOQ we need)
So if we can move onto stage 2, we can easily get the next few colours' ANSI set

This is mainly affected by the Add-On Pack, as it has a fixed MOQ of 300 unlike the ANSI ones.


Finally moved to production for phase 1.

Looks like just the regular set would be sufficient.  The extra kits appear to be only for tsangan, iso, and other unique layouts.

I assume the higher prices for the add-ons is so if only 100 are ordered, then you still have enough money to pay for the 300 MOQ.
If this is right, then who gets the extra sets?

Def. gonna order the Dolch.  I do really like the Granite also, but my stupid jerk self is really bothered by the \| key being the same color as the modifiers.  Never cared for that.

Two Dolch sets with addon packs for me.  THe addon packs provide a lot of potential for supporting old and weirder boards (i. e. Korean Customs), and it's really a nicer alternative to having a galaxy of short runs... so it really works better with Tai Hao's "dirt cheap but not very custom" behaviour.

If we order from Stage 2 and Stage 1, will it all be shipped together or shipped separately? (Will additional ANSI packs be $5 or $3 for shipping from Stage 2?)

$1.5 for
That should be $29.53  ;)  ($28 * 1.044 + $0.30 = $29.53, not $30.58)

Thx

I forgot to change the answer after I lowerd the initial shipping cost :))

I assume the higher prices for the add-ons is so if only 100 are ordered, then you still have enough money to pay for the 300 MOQ.
If this is right, then who gets the extra sets?

Very likely will donate to geekhack
Or maybe those who have ordered take a few sets home

But let's think about this later
I am pretty confident that we can reach the final tier

Just checking.

So the shipping price for one ANSI set will be $5 dollars (plus 3 for tracking),  and then for ever other ANSI set add $3 (plus $3 for tracking?

So the concept is. 
You just need to pay once for the tracking
No matter how many u ordered

Okay,  but it is $5 for the first ANSI set and add $3 for every ANSI set after that?

Just checking because it says something like "applies for the first 10 sets"  or something.
