Silkscreen and Naming:


Created by the incredible dasherby#7777 <3

A little history behind the name and design choices:
Ristretto is a short shot of espresso, typically just the first half of a normal espresso shot; this gives a sweeter, fruitier, and richer flavor compared to espresso.
Dasherby took this coffee theme and ran with it, creating an adorable friend filled to the brim with that sweet sweet cocaine we call coffee.
Base plates will feature the Ristretto and credits in exposed copper.


Supported Layouts:


Notes about layout:
The bottom layouts are compatible and interchangeable on both left and mirrored on right side.
All leftmost 1u options (below C and <) can be substituted for the 1.25 vertical option; this is visible in the pictures above.
Because of switch placements, the 1-1-1.5 is only supported only on FR4 kit. This is not compatible with the acrylic case.

Looks good, I'm going to assume the custom engraving options for the Acrylic comes at a cost, any idea on how much that will be?
Also I assume the screws holding the acrylic stack also have various colour options?

Yes, the engraving options will be through P3D and it tends to be +40USD for the engraving.
There are 10 different colors for the case bolts too, color options can be seen here.
