Collabs:
Cable: Voxelmods


Voxelmods will be offering a set of colorful cables with white push pull connectors! These cables have straight leads, and can come in either grape, green apple, strawberry, or whiteout for your minimalists out there. Please note that the push pulls in the images used are not representative of the final product: these are the connectors prior to being cerakoted, the end product will have a super sexy and durable matte white finish! Images of what the connectors will look like can be seen on the product page on Voxel's site.

Asero Foundry Metal Artisan: R4/ESC 1U ASERO CAP IS CANCELLED



Bag: Mech Fashion:
Mechfashion will be offering a cute bag to hold your keyboard adorned with the same pattern found on the desk mat, complete with a plush apple-flavored green interior and a grape-flavored purple drawstring.

Resin Artisans: I will be working with the following resin makers on collabs for this set! More details, prototypes, etc TBA.

-Miroticaps



-Meof Caps

-Okeydokey Studio



-Bowbie Keycaps
-Kapcave

-Mythcaps



-n.Na Works

Pantone 2069u- Purple
Pantone 305u- Blue

Note that all renders are simply used in order to visualize the set. These colors represent the actual colors that the set will use, and may be changed slightly as development goes on in order to better capture the theme. Things like monitor calibration, compression, and room lighting can all affect the perception of the set colors.

Thanks! I really tried to get pricing to a place that I think it would be doable for a lot of people. And the pricing is fixed!

Beautiful! GLWG 😄

Thank you! I really appreciate the support, 40s + hiragana seems to be a crowd favorite combo of kits for a lot of people. I just hope base also sells, nothing gets made if that doesnt hit moq  :D

Entering week 3 now! If you haven't already. please consider picking up a few kits! Base kit is only 89 USD, and IMO would look great on any white. purple, pink, etc board. Not to mention that this set is made of high-quality dye sub PBT with reasonable lead time. Your support is very appreciated!. Here is a meme for yall as well
