How does SP work with these kind of orders? If we want Black text as well do they see that as a separate process? Semms like it'd be pretty easy for them to make 50 sets of each if the only thing that is changing is the color of the text.

Can I suggest that there's a count of people such as myself who would  be in if the count reached 50?
I'm in for 2 if we reach 50.

Maybe with the counter we've already reached 50.

If we don't reach 50 the group buy will be canceled anyway, so you might as well say "I'm in for 2".

Every just pay an extra $3 or $4 and we'll lotto out the extra six.  Then we can place the order sooner. :)

noodles stated that this will end at the end of July or when it hits 100...that still true?

I assume I'm not the only one that would hop on board this when it gets to a certain amount (75 for me)

There may also be some people that want to add a set if it gets to 75+ Might wanna ask about that and you might find that there are more people interested than you think.

Note that I'm going off my price sheet, I didn't get a quote for the set alone.  So I do need to verify with SP to make sure I'm not missing something.  (I'm ordering other custom designed caps for a lil-keycap store I want to start.)

But we could possibly be [strike]< $20 for 50, < $15 for 75, and a bit over $10 for 100 sets[/strike].  

Update: Refigured, and the BASE cost for the caps, without any design charges seem to come out to:

  • 50 - $682 ($13.64 each)
  • 75 - $924 ($12.32 each)
  • 100 - $1,168 ($11.68 each)


Of course, expect to pay a bit more than that as there may be $25-45 setup charge per unique key. Or unique design, need to check on that.  (Could be nothing if they already have this.)  

Also, there will be shipping from SP to whomever is going to ship these on our end.  I'm not sure if they have any other fees.

Anyway, I'll check into this and see if this is accurate.  If it sounds too good to be true... yada yada yada.  But this is what my pricing suggests.[/COLOR]



Not as low as the 7bit could do in the big group buy, but still better than the current pricing, and we should get it much sooner.  

Now, I guess there may be some 3% Paypal fees and such, so I'm not sure how Group Buys normally handle this?  I wouldn't mind placing the order, but I don't want to lose money either.

Well, let's wait until I get confirmation from SP before any new bids come in that are strictly influenced by the new price.  As I said, the cost-per-set will probably be higher than what's in the bullets, but I'm not sure how much.

Or, there could be some good reason Noodles was quoted more, which would apply to my pricing too.

I know this was discussed earlier in the thread, but the original photo is still the dark blue... so FWIW.

Quote from: noodles256;374519
Expect the set to look like this except with white lettering.

Show Image



Colors will be:

RR for Control
VCS/VCM for Shift
BFN for Alt

FYI, judging by my color ring, the blue we selected (BFN) is a baby blue, not like shown here. (Maybe closer to the OTD, but not quite as "bright").  For green, VCS is similar to the picture above.  VCM is closer to the OTD green too, but a bit darker.  Hard to tell what it'll look like, and perhaps this was discussed before, but just thought I'd raise the issue.

Aside from your monitor calibration, our current colors should look similar to this:
[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 21217[/ATTACH]
(Depending on the which of the two greens we go with)

also, people who said earlier that they would order more when we get to 75 or 100 sets should order more now, as the new price for 50 sets is lower than the previous price for 100 sets.

I'm confused on what aggiejy said about the prices exactly. Waiting for an update from him...


Basically I'm saying, with 50 sets, our price should be $13.64 per set for the actual key-cap production.  They *may* charge a design charge per size to make the legend spacer for the mold.  They say $25-45 depending on complexity, per legend/size.  Assuming these are simplish, we'll conservatively estimate $30 x 4 (each shift size, and one red, one blue)...  that would be +$2.40 each set.  Probably more like $1-2.  (And if we had 100 sets, that would be halved.)  Add to that shipping from SP... I'll guess $25... $0.50 each.  Then we'll have to come up with a fair shipping price (flat rate = easier) that will cover the padded envelops and postage and perhaps any PayPal fees.  I'd assume <$5 US, not sure international.

So pricing may actually come out ~$15 pre-shipping... ~$20 shipped in the US.

BUT...
Let me confirm this with SP tomorrow.  I was just PMing this to noodles when he surprised me by throwing it into the thread. :)

Also, consider adding shipping from SP to group buy organizer plus shipping from organizer to individual buyers.  Should be around $20 / set according aggiejy.  Hopefully there will be combined shipping discount.  The keys are smaller enough that I would expect it would cost the same to ship 1 set or 6 sets :-)

Yes, I'd imagine the shipping to the buyer will cover at least two sets since they don't weigh much.  Just need to find *light* envelopes. :)  Heck it would probably cover 4 sets.

USPS's smallest Priority Mail cardboard box should be able to take as many as ten sets.  I received a full set of Round 3 Group Buy Standard set shipped inside just this smallest USPS Priority Mail cardboard box. All keys were inside a Ziplock bag.
