[GB] SA Fledgling - GB ended, everything will be made!
« on: Thu, 26 August 2021, 09:31:50 »


Group buy LIVE NOW until September 25!

Cute meets classy in SA Fledgling, a keycap set inspired by cheap red hair dye, washed-out Sacramento sunshine, and elaborate coming-of-age metaphors. In the vintage sculpted SA profile, this set evokes nostalgia without sacrificing a sense of playfulness. This set is intended to be produced by Signature Plastics in doubleshot ABS in the 1-2-3-4-3 sculpted SA profile.

Original IC thread

Join my Discord for keyset discussion and updates, in addition to updates on all of the upcoming collabs! I'll keep this post, Instagram, and the SA Fledgling website updated regularly. However, there will be informal leaks, etc. posted on the Discord, so check it out if you're interested (there are also cute cat emotes).

Ikki68 Aurora x Fledgling collaboration - NEW VERSION (8/13)

The Ikki68 Aurora collab has undergone a makeover! Basically, after the first iteration of the board went through IC, it was decided to make the design more unique and interesting, with an understated floral design on the back, sides, and just a bit on the front of the board, inspired by Shannie's Fledgling deskmat design! (Thank you to summerqm for design execution and pwade for the renders!) In addition, unlike previous versions of the Ikki68 Aurora, this collab design features an e-coated alu top case for a heavier and more premium feel!

Re: [GB] SA Fledgling - 4-day numbers and artisan collabs!
« Reply #13 on: Tue, 31 August 2021, 12:28:20 »
Super appreciate everyone's support on this set so far! <3 If you haven't ordered any kits yet, please consider. Even if SA isn't your jam, the deskmats are seriously GORGEOUS. If the colorway isn't your jam, consider the metal artisans, since pink (Salvun 1u) and dark navy blue (Asero 2.25u) will look great with many other SA sets, too.

Just want to share two more artisan collabs you can check out :

Macher Studio raffle, live now!



And a giveaway from KeyWeboards! They will also be having a fulfillment sale that starts Thursday, 9/2.

Hello! As you can see a few posts above, the group buy numbers are moving along slowly but surely. I am cautiously optimistic that all kits and deskmats will be made, but this group buy still needs your support, and every bit of it is really appreciated  :). The metal artisans from Salvun and Asero Foundry could probably use extra support if you'd like to see those get made as well!!

In case you missed it, CraftedbyAnnie had a Fledgling collab raffle last Saturday!! (Maybe I should've posted here when it went live, but honestly I don't think anyone tracks artisan raffles via GH anyway, and it's all on IG and Discord!).

Will the deskmats ship out earlier than the keyset if ordered separately?

I would like to to say yes because I honestly don't see why that WOULDN'T be the case, but it might be best to confirm with your regional vendor for a more definitive answer. Though as far as I am aware, all of the vendors for this set will ship deskmats once they receive them, as long as they were ordered separately from the keyset.

Hey, I had a quick question. If I wanted to cover an Alice type board, I would need an Alphas Kit, a 60%-TKL kit, and a spacebar kit, correct? Or do I need an Extension kit as well?

Alpha / Mod / Spacebar is enough for Alice.

Looks like synthtastic already answered your question, but yeah, just to confirm - you'll only need the Alphas, 60%-TKL kit, and the spacebars! No extension necessary.

Thank you for supporting!! <3

Week 3 numbers have obviously been shared above. Thanks everyone for your support so far, and I hope to see a big push in the last week and a half to get over MOQ! Support on the child kits has been great too.
