Supports for double backspace and stepped capslock
Supports most of 65% PCBs

Color will be chosen via IC form between 6 shades, carefully picked to get the best anodization results
Expected RRP will range between 230 and 260Ä cheaper, at 190Ä - 230Ä!

Ma che cosa piu bella
A pessimist will tell you the cup is half empty. An optimist will tell you the cup is half full. An engineer will tell you it's exactly twice the size it needs to be.

This looks nice, based off of the IC form, the price is not including a pcb?

Also, I like the layout shown on the proto, but I'm just curious what other layouts this supports.

Thank you very much! Yes, the expected 230-270Ä RRP doesn't include the PCB: our case is compatible with most 65% PCBs, but we can offer our premium version as well as an add-on. The plate, which aims to mantain the best rigidity while typing supports the shown layout and double backspace / stepped capslock

Here's the photo of the bottom, it's not definitive the rubber feet may change and the screws will be at the same height.
We have kept our design line minimal and clean.

We are based in Italy so unfortunately import duties, including VAT, may be applied when the package arrives in U.S.

Yes WKL is one of our favourite layout, but we donít want to create our first keeb so exclusive.
We will definetly take in consideration in our future design

In the pizza-box shaped packaging you will find 2 original PizzaKeeb stickers (currently in printing process).
We hope it will be a nice addition.

For what i can tell by prototype the board feels really good, the weight with the aluminum plate is around 1,5/1,6 kg more with the brass plate

Any chance you could offer ISO plate option as well? I would like to use it with KBD67 rev2 PCB for ISO support.

The starting price, expected between 230 - 270Ä, will include the case and the aluminum plate. PCB will be sold separately for around 60Ä, same for the the handmade brass plate upgrade. Please consider that the case is made and anodized in Italy by small manufacturers and the PCB has some premium features like the lead-free finish, STM32 and protections. We will try hard to bring the best quality / money ratio in production lowering prices as much as possible

Thank you, no sorry, to keep the plate as solid as possible it is only compatible with the double backpace and stepped capslock.

I understand that, I meant if separate plate with ISO support could be available? I'm very interested even if it would cost more.
If that is not doable, could you make ISO plate file and make it available?

Thank you very much! We are receiving many requests for ISO compatibility, so we are thinking about making it possible. In the next days we will try to come out with a prototype to test plate stability

I really like this. A lot of great 65% out right now.

I'd suggest adding a PCB/plate layout compatibility diagram, and renders of all the possible colors so folks have an idea of what to expect (without having to go through the IC form)

Thank you for your interest, as you can see we are still changing some things, the layout compatibility diagram is not there yet because it is not final and we will pick the 3 favourite color shades from in the form results

UPDATE 1: ISO COMPATIBILITY
After tons of requests we are officially adding an ISO compatible plate. This is now asked in the form just for some basic statistics, if you already filled out donít worry about it. We fastly prototyped a double-compatible plate but we didnít like the feeling at all, so we just decided to bring two versions. Hope you like it and thanks for the massive love you showed us!

Also, the IC form has no way to identify who you are for the discount! Maybe put a section for that!

Hello, if you don't mind making the plate  mount on top and bottom only that would be great.

Side mounting is not really that good :(  because you have inconsistent feel
