How it came to be
It all started by my friend Chamoy and his love for 40s. We started this in January and it was only going to be a 40s Set because he likes that. We choose DSS because of the short production time. We wanted something Sencillo(Simple), clean and bit pastel. We really hope you like the set and can support us in GB. If you have more information please feel free to ask below.




Acknowledgments
  • Firstly I would to thank Nasp for all his help with the project and the renders as well
  • Vheissu for his art directions and helping with making it cute
  • To Trash Man for giving permission to use his icons in the set and Deskmat
  • To all my mods and mocos as well.

Hi Everyone,


Checkerboards.xyz will be offering a Day 1 promotion of X% off child kits. I haven't nailed down the exact percentage off, but it'll probably be around 10% give or take.

Some other vendors might also be doing day 1 promotions so please check with the vendor nearest to you.


Cheers!

Hello Everyone,

Had a good start to day 1 but it's not over yet! There's little over an hour left to receive your day 1 discount of 15% off all child kits.

If you do miss purchasing on day 1, day 2 will have child kits at 10% off.


Cheers  :thumb:


I leave you with a teal TKC Candy Bar with teal accents.

This came quickly. I wish the accents had dark text instead of white.

Are the icon mods really thicker in weight than the alphas, or is that just a render issue?

Check out DSA Paperwork for a real-world example since DSS and DSA share the same legend molds. The font weight should be roughly equal.

Thanks, Dvorcol!

I expect there to be a lot of last minute purchases towards the end of the GB period, at which point Checker Boards and the other vendors will buy out to MOQ if needed.

Will the alpha legend sizing will be similar to DSA Paperwork, or DSS Dolch and DSS Shale which appear to have slightly smaller legends (which I prefer  ^-^)

I'm already in for a kit - Alphas, TKL mods, and numpad. I needed a good classy BoW keyset and I've been wanting to try out DSS, so this came along at the perfect time! Really digging the fresh mod icons.

The designers like the smaller ones better so that'll be what we'll go with.
