Small pp weight there

Yea I should stop calling it that. It's more of an accent piece. If you like heavy boards this ain't it for you, sorry.

December updates here: https://studiokestra.ca/2020/12/21/december-2020-preparing-for-group-buy/

I plan on putting future updates on my website because it's a lot easier to manage content and does not require you to join yet another discord server. Of course I will still create a discord, but it's not a priority at this time. I will still post updates simultaneously here on GH as well.

Any thoughts on what the group buy/quantity is gonna look like?

In summary:

- slate blue ano is great, the factory nailed it first time
- 2nd prototype has been sent to one of my favorite streamers for build and impressions, announcement TBD
- group buy will take place in January 2021
- group buy quantity, price and format TBD
- if I had to put a number, probably 70-80 units, at around $450 CAD ($350 USD) + shipping
- final pricing still TBD as I'm getting final packaging and shipping quotes
- there will be a final form to be sent out closer to GB date where I will ask you to vote for GB format (raffle vs FCFS), brass finish, etc.

Enjoy the holidays, we'll get 2021 started off right :cool:

So you will handle everything by yourself or are you going to cooperate with a vendor?

It is a low volume group buy so it will be handled by me. Vendor collabs coming for future boards though.

Update time!

You can now join the discord server here: https://discord.gg/Sv9a37n

If discord is not your thing or you just don't want to join yet another keyboard server, you can also stay informed via newsletter sign-up here: https://store.studiokestra.ca

Alexotos will be building a prototype on stream on Jan 10 @ 1PM EST! It will be the WK Slate Blue prototype. Follow him on https://twitch.tv/alexotos if you don't already!

I'm in the process of finalizing group buy details (negotiating shipping rates, coordinating manufacturers, setting up storefront, etc) so I'm aiming for end of January or early February.

I want to give props to kbye, as he is either the first or one of very few people running a keyboard or keyset GB that actually followed through on sending out a follow-up email after collecting emails.

Excited to see this moving forward, and I'm eager for more info :)

Yep the design is based off of that image and has been licensed for commercial use through Adobe Stock (same artist).

That's one of the sexiest blues I've seen in a while.
