About DCS:MoreDCS is a profile made by Signature Plastics. It can be made using numerous materials, but this set will use doubleshot ABS plastic. The sculpt of DCS is very similar to cherry profile. DCS will also have a much shorter leadtime in comparison to manufactures like GMK and EPBT, but a little longer than manufacturers like Milkyway and Domikey.
Comparing DCS to cherry profile, the corners are rounded, and the caps are a bit thinner with a slightly taller profile. This allows them to not be affected by keycap interference resulting from a north facing switch configuration.There is a bit more texture on the top of the caps compared to GMK, but there is virtually no texture on the sides of the caps.

Colors:This set uses all stock colors from Signature Plastics.Click to see physical color samples:More
Kits:*Though renders have been colormatched as best as possible, they may not accurately depict the final product. These renders use Fooblitzky DCS models (see credits).*All rendered by hzsh#1751.
Base: Target Pricing: $120-$125 $116 USD (MOQ - 250) Has compatibility for up to fullsize, including Tsangan, 65%/75%, ISO, etc.
Novelties:Target Pricing: $30-$35 $39 USD (MOQ - 100 150)Designed by stellaidoscope#0666. This kit has been reworked to include compatibility for two macro columns.After talking with Signature Plastics, the ISO novelty design can only be done with UV printing. I have decided to only include the accented color, as including both would increase the price of the kit beyond what I am comfortable with. If there is overwhelming support to replace the accented with the mod colored enter or to add the mod colored enter in addition, I will consider the change.
Full Moon Alt Alphas Kit:Target Pricing: $54 USD (MOQ - 100)Alt alphas kit to provide a lighter contrast.
10u Spacebars:Target Pricing: $9 USD (MOQ - 50)These will work with 7u stabilizer wires.
Extension: Target Pricing: $23-$27 USD (MOQ - 75)Note: All bars less than 6u are concave blanks.
