Just like the title of the thread says.


If you have ideas for keys, website ideas, or feedback from orders put them here!

Sent a message to you with pic yesterday.  I like the vintage cherry function row in orange.

Would also help with legend costs.

Less novelty, more classic reproduction :)

I would like to suggest that the emails that you're sending to be a bit more colorful... Just would make me want to be a bit of more of a customer. Granted, you know how much money that I have... heh.

SP wont make those because it is a copyright infringement.  It appears QWERkeys doesn't mind taking that risk and is making them.

I don't see it for sale on their site, but you can reach out in the QWERkey vendor forum.

In the meantime check out some keys at techkeys.us and sign up for updates :)

I would like to see some white PBT white engraved Poker sets. All I can find right now are blank one or white with grey/black lettering.

edit: Would also like to see some custom backspace designs.

Seen them somewhere before, but they didn't strike me as particularly easy to get hold of.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

The Mario and Luigi are simply an M and an L in a circle.  It may still be in a grey area of intellectual property, but its not a trademarked logo as far as I know.

I would like to see another group buy of center stemmed stepped caps lock keys. White on black, black on black, translucent lettering on black (hell yeah!) etc.etc. I am willing to help out in part, or in full, with the capitol required to make it happen. I would also be more than willing to pre-order if that scenario works better.
