SP Cherry MX 87-key Dyesub Group Buy ***ORDERS ARE NOW CLOSED***

(1/127) > >>


There's been talk in the past of doing a full-set dyesub group buy, but it never got off the ground. I'm curious if we can change that.

So here's the deal: the set is one full 87-key set of PBT dye sublimated keycaps, spaced to match a Filco (Combined Filco/Leopold-compatible spacebar). Black Helvetica font on a blue keycap. Keycaps are from the "DCS" family, in which thickness varies from 0.033" to 0.040". I want to keep this group buy as simple as possible, so suggestions to deviate from this plan will not be accepted (of course, you are welcome to start your own group buy).

Here's a photo of the shades of blue that SP can do for PBT keycaps. We will use the last one on the bottom (BCT). The spacebar will be matched as closely with this color as possible in ABS.

Please PM me if your set has a Backspace with non-straight lettering!

I'm in for 1 x 87-key set please..

I hope to have a sample image for reference soon...

What color blue? Like a light blue or a darker one?

Helvetica is a hipster font, but that'd make it awesome. XD

So SP can finally do dye sub keys?  Cool.  I am interested.  I would wait to get to 100 sets though.
