Dodgy's Keycaps
« on: Mon, 07 April 2014, 12:41:01 »
Sale is over. All remaining stock will probably not be made available in future sales. Thank you all for your support and business, it means a ton to me that you guys even like what I've done to begin with.
Keep an eye on my thread for updates on new caps, improvements on existing designs, and some surprises I have in the works.

Hey all, here is the sale thread for my custom keycaps.
All of these keycaps are made by hand, with cast resin.
Here is the thread that I've kept updated since I've started doing this:
http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=54513.0

Because I'm a bit limited in tools & space, these caps are not completely perfect. Small bubbles in the cap walls can sometimes exist. I try my best to be fair when selecting which caps are acceptable to sell, and hope that those who buy my caps understand that these are the best I can offer at this time. If anyone is unhappy with what they receive, please reach out to me and we can get things resolved.

Ok, the caps!
All CONUS orders ship for $3, Paypal gift is preferred- Thanks!

All caps are MX

$15 ea:
60299-060301-1

1- Deep Sea - Available styles: Goyle, Mister
2- Tropic - Available styles: Goyle, Mister, Foxy
3- Aurora - Available styles: Goyle, blank, mister
4- Lavender - Available styles: Goyle, Mister
5- Old Bones - Available styles: Goyle, Mister, Foxy
6- Lily - Available styles: Goyle, Mister, Foxy
7- Rave - Available styles: Goyle, Mister, Foxy
8- Ether - Available styles: Goyle, Mister, Foxy
9- Pond - Available styles: Goyle, Mister, Foxy
10- Mars - Available styles: Goyle, Mister
11- Honey - Available styles: Goyle, Mister



LE, (1 of 1 or 1 of 2)- These caps will not be made again in this color, they're unique now and are staying that way. In addition, of those who purchase an LE cap, one person at random will also get an unreleased/unannounced new design, in a unique color.
$20 ea:
60303-260307-360305-4

R1- Lime Fizz!
R2- Sandstorm
R3- Evil Onyx
R4- Old Bones (Hard Candy)

Dumb question:

Is "L5- Strawberry Milk (R1 Blank)" a Topre Fn cap?  If so, I will take it, please. :)

edit:  oops wanted L5 not L7


edit:  Dodgy clarified for me:  not Topre Fn so passing on this, thanks :)

Whatever doesn't have a strikethrough should still be available, I've been keeping it updated.

You're not paying for the quality, you're paying for craftsmanship.

See it as an investment for better "quality" keycaps in the future. Support the artists yo :)

You're welcome to be skeptical, I'm not going to hate that.
As for quality, I've been pretty clear throughout that this is a first run, I only plan to improve as time goes on. That being said, I think they are of good quality and sturdy based on my own attempts to damage them. The caps that I actually have available are maybe a 3rd of the caps that I've cast. I've been very selective on what I deemed worthy of sale, and made sure each cap individually would make me happy if I bought it. I don't want to send people crap, take their money and run- that's just dishonest.
As for the pricing goes, I took a look back at what some of the other capcrafters have priced their caps at when they were starting out, and used their prices as guiding points for my own. Also keep in mind I'm only asking for $3 to ship anywhere in CONUS, which is way below what I actually give UPS when each package goes out.
Sure, I could ship USPS for less but I prefer UPS because I've found that they "care" more than my cheaper alternatives.

I personally don't think the prices are that bad. And while the quality could be better, these are a first run. I really bought my caps to support Dodgy's efforts. But I can understand your scepticism. If you want you can check out my review, and when a second run comes out I'll grab a few and review the progress that has been made with them.

How can I work with this mustachioed sir staring at me all day?  ;)

Like your boss watching you all day :eek:
"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
