Update post and photos here.

I got the deskmat samples. Other than me wanting to adjust the light blue color it looks good. The production version should have a darker blue stitching around the border. Keycap manu is on time and expected to ship to vendors early/mid April it seems. However, since I want to adjust the deskmat color it may or may not delay shipping a bit depending on how fast they can color match and if we get another sample or not. I apologize but I want to get it right! Hopefully you can understand 🙇🙇🏻‍♀️

- Feb 18, 2021 -

Update post here to address some questions I've gotten on other platforms. ETA for shipping is still the same as previous update. Still waiting on 2nd deskmat samples.

TL;DR - the keycaps will match the prototype that I've spammed photos of. Deskmats will match renders of the mat shared during IC/GB. I will update with deskmat sample photos when I receive them.
Added an imgur album link of the prototypes to this post in case folks don't want to click through to Instagram or the old IC post.

Proto photos here (imgur)

- Update Jan 27, 2021 -
Per TKC via Discord:
"Comfy is near completion but will take a bit more time as CNY has rolled around for our manufacturers, expect for it to finish manufacturing and be on the way to us by the end of February, so [we] expect delivery to our proxies as well as us to be late March/early April"


Deskmats are currently in sample/color matching process. I have sent in updated coated Pantone/CYMK codes.

Hello! Good morning/day/afternoon/evening wherever you are I hope you are doing well. The world is weird so I hope everyone is staying comfy : )


I'm back with another sales updates. Once again this isn't all of the vendors since I keep forgetting to update when I do get new numbers from other vendors :( .


In any case Comfy is doing way better than I could have ever expected! I continue to thank everyone who has shown support and love <3. If you've missed it Alexotos streamed a build using the prototype Comfy on my old blurple KBDfans 5 degree. (A build with my very first custom keyboard case, Gateron Yellows spring swapped with Sprit 68g progressive springs, a USB-C DZ60, alu plate, and some KBDfans foam.) It came out super pretty with the dark purple case and the blues and pink of Comfy.


Numbers as of September 30th:

Core: 380
Extension: 169
Comfy Cats: 290
Dots: 15
Triangles: 7

Thanks for linking it! It does show up on the home page if you scroll down but not on the 'Preorders and Groubuys' page for some reason... in fact it looks like this is the case for any Infinikey set :( not sure why I never got a response about it...

GB period is over :O! (Though at the time I'm posting this it looks like it might still be up on some regional vendors' stores lol). Thank you for all the amazing support :) I'll hopefully have final numbers to share but TKC alone has 879 Core Kits, 399 Extension Kits, 664 Comfy Cats, 35 Polka Dots, and 9 Triangle mats sold (not including extras). That's like four times of what I was expected when I first posted the IC. I can't thank the community enough for the encouragement and feedback <3.


And now we wait for production 😅

- Update/Statement Feb 18, 2021 -


I've been asked a few times for a status update, especially in light of recent concerns stemming from recently shipped IFK sets. Comfy has always been a set that (somehow) ran with little to no renders. The renders on the product pages were made right before GB period so I've always been firm to trust the photographs of the prototypes. Photos can be found in the IC/GB threads, on Alexotos's social media and stream, and my Instagram page. The only renders I have personally help develop are the renders that you might have seen on Aether Hemera's Daedalus. Thus, expect the colors to match the prototypes, not any renders that you might spot on product pages.

I have been in regular contact with TKC to ensure that the colors of the keycaps and the deskmats match my vision and the prototypes. I did not make changes to the keycap colors so the production sets should match the colors of the protos. The only changes I made were to correct some legends. I'm working to try to see if I can get photos of the production set or at least confirmation that the legends look good/are aligned. The prototypes had a few alignment issues but part of that were due to errors on the files I had initially sent. I might have mentioned in some places during/right after GB that the dark blue might be adjusted to be 5% lighter than the protos but that has been scrapped - the colors being produced will be the colors of the prototypes.

Deskmats are awaiting 2nd samples to ensure the colors match the renders. Since I had initially used TPG/TPX pantones and IFK dyesub uses uncoated pantones - the colors used are technically 'custom' since there aren't direct equivalent uncoated pantones to match. Similarly the deskmats needed updated reference colors (Coated Pantones rather than the TPG/TPX chips) after the first samples since it is on cloth and not plastic so I provided the following pantones to ensure that the deskmats match the renders as much as possible:
PANTONE  4032 C
PANTONE  4138 C
PANTONE  4156 C

Hopefully that helps address some concerns people have about Comfy. No one wants this set to work out smoothly as much as I do  :eek: . I will continue to update with more info as I learn more.

TL;DR - the keycaps will match the prototype that I've spammed photos of. Deskmats will match renders of the mat shared during IC/GB. I will update with deskmat sample photos when I receive them.

Hello! Hope everyone is doing well. Updates in TL;DR:
  • Keycaps are expected to be on time - should reach vendors
  • I have the sample deskmats personally in hand. They look good outside of the light blue color being too blue compared to the keycaps.
To elaborate, the dark blue and the pink are as expected but the light blue is a bit off (see 3rd photo) and I'd like to get a little green in that blue to better match the keycap colors. I've given them updated coated pantone colors (the keycaps themselves use uncoated pantones so it can't be 1 to 1 same color) to hopefully get it to be closer. Since I want to adjust the deskmat color it may or may not delay shipping a bit depending on how fast they can color match and if we get another sample or not. I apologize but I want to get it right! Hopefully you can understand 🙇🏻‍♀️
