[GB] EPBT Ivory - Shipping! | June 1st - July 1st, 2020

EnjoyPBT Ivory


This is a non-profit set for Save The Elephants, a non-profit organization located in Kenya, Africa.
They work by providing protection, conducting research, spreading awareness, and resolving conflict.

How Will Profits Be Donated?
The vendors and I will only receive the money that was put into making this kit (e.g. renders, design, vendor expenses).
Everything else will stay with the vendors, and they will do the donation process. Screenshots and proof will be provided after the group buy.
100% of profits from sales will be donated to charity.



Updates

Samples came in, and they are approved! The first two pictures are direct comparisons in daylight, and the last one is a more "visually accurate" photo with less harsh lighting. Taken with iPhone X.

Maybe I'm an idiot, but isn't it usually R1 - R4 from top to bottom? Is this set like a reverse profile?

It's not you it's ePBT - for whatever reason they number the rows backwards to everyone else.  It will look and feel normal :)

That Nomad set looks great. Apparently some of those keys are uncommon for ePBT.
Did you confirm that ePBT can make those keys in the appropriate row profiles and that all the spacebars are convex?

The spacebars are all convex. I will make sure with EPBT a third time before the GB ends that they can produce all the keys in the rows in the nomad kit.

I would say that it's far too late to check that now.
Obviously a lot of people have already bought the set as advertised.

True. I've done what I could. If it happens that they've misunderstood me 2 times in a row then there's nothing I can really do but offer refunds to those who want it.

They actually only advertise for products with a certain number of sales already donated, so that unfortunately does not apply. I have contacted them though, and got everything pretty much worked out for the donation process!

It ends today, July 1st

It's PVD Brass


This is kind of repetitive, but today is the last day to purchase the set! Let's make that final stretch :)

This is really a gorgeous set and its going to help the elephants!  I just found out about this group buy today on the last day so I didnt have time to plan out a board. Instead, Im just getting a novelties set. It also reminds me of the Evernote elephant, which Ive been using their software for over a decade.

EPBT Ivory
Rama caps have arrived. The keycap sets are being produced now and should complete in the next few months. There's not a firm timeline yet, but should be by the end of the year.

Whoops, looks like I replied by mistake here but for the people that need to know:

EPBT Ivory is currently in production to be shipped out to vendors near the end of December.

No.

This was said in November. Id be shocked if they were in my hands by the end of the year. Done with production by the end of the year might be possible.

Thanks I saw that on the Kono website. Technically November is the end of the year so. Assuming they're referring to December for the production to be done, I assume the shipping will happen January - February then?

Perhaps Kono themselves weren't notified, or they just didn't provide a proper update. KBDF are handled the manufacturing.
