Exclusive NOS Alps Switches & Plates
Bear Cables (ships worldwide, except UK) will be offering new-old-stock (NOS) Alps SKCM White and forged carbon fiber plates.

SKCM White are a medium-weight, clicky switch that can be made linear by simply removing the click leaf, if desired. Unfortunately, quantities of SKCM White are limited, and will be sold FCFS.
Switch quantities offered are 70x ($99.99), 90x ($124.99), and 110x ($149.99).

Plates offered will all be approximately 1.1mm thick and made of forged carbon fiber.
Four designs will be offered - 60% (gummy o-ring & tray mount), Jane V1, Jane V2, and Jane V2 CE, priced at $29.99 for the 60% and $39.99 for the TKL plates.
These four designs will be compatible with dozens of different boards. Plate files will be released sometime after GB.

Updates

11/03/2022
Just a small update for the few folks that got ISO kits: the legend on ISO enter will be placed towards the top of the keycap, as it is on other DCS sets, not in the center like our renders show it

I'm hoping this makes it. I have an upcoming Frog TKL with Alps that this set would look great on.  :thumb:

I have to wait until the last day to get into the group buy, though.

Less than 24-48 hours remaining to buy (depending on vendor)!

Make sure to get in your last minute orders and share with your Alps friends :)

Nothing notable, just in the manufacturing queue, as far as I am aware.

Update regarding DCS Alps WoB:

Signature Plastics has informed us that production is scheduled to begin late July, but it is likely that it will begin sooner. This probably means shipping is on track for Q3, but I will update again once I am able to provide a more accurate ETA.

Signature Plastics has also informed us that mykeyboard.eu is yet to pay their invoice. Production will continue with or without them, but I am uncertain on what this means for EU customers. Bear Cable Co. and I have both contacted mykeyboard.eu regarding this, but have not received an actual response. Hopefully they pay their invoice before production begins so EU customers can receive their keycaps on time. I will continue to follow up on the matter, and will update if there is any news.

Update:

SP informed us production will likely finish in two weeks. Hopefully this means early Q4 shipping.

Also, I just realized I never updated about the vendor payment situation - all invoices have been paid, so everyone should be getting their caps :)

Update:

Great news! Production has finished, and shipping to vendors is underway. Bear Cables already received his shipment, so QC will be underway in coming week. Not sure what the current shipment status is for other vendors at this time, but will update once I hear more.

If you have any address changes needed, it is probably a good idea to contact your vendor ASAP.

This also means extras will be available in the near future, for those that have been waiting.

Update:

There was a mistake in the 40's kit: the 1.25u, 1.5u, and 1.75u Enter keys were supposed to be R3, but were made as R4. These are being remade and replacements will be shipped out to those that bought 40's kits. No ETA on replacements as of now.

Sorry about that.
