SA Skyriter Keycap Set



Updates
May 11, 2021
SA Skyriter is now shipping!

April 19, 2021
Kits are being collated now and will ship to vendors shortly!

November 14, 2020
Not much to update at this time. Production has been paid for and colour chips along with typewriter keycaps have been sent to Signature Plastics for matching. Will update again once samples have been received.



General Info
Welcome and please have your boarding passes ready for flight SA Skyriter!

SA Skyriter is a keycap set based on the early 50s Smith-Corona Skyriter typewriter. SA Skyriter brings the deep rich forest, seafoam, and olive green colours from the original typewriter and applies them to keycaps fit for our modern MX style switches.



The group buy for SA Skyriter will run August 7 to 28, 2020 and will be available for unlimited pre-order world-wide at Daily Clack, DeskHero, Mykeyboard.eu, NovelKeys, and zFrontier. Please see the vendors section for pricing and regions. Expected shipping time is end of March 2021.

Specifications
  • Designed by Christopher Janzen (cijanzen)
  • Manufactured by Signature Plastics  in USA
  • SA Profile (112343)
  • Doubleshot ABS Keycaps
  • Compatible with Cherry MX switches and clones

Colours
SA Skyriter will match Pantone colours specially selected to reference the original Smith-Corona Skyriter typewriter colours for the alphas (627 C) and legends (2260 C) along with original typewriter keycap samples for the modifiers (Custom).
Please keep in mind the images shown are renders of the product and are only used to estimate the final product. The end product may vary in color from the renders as they are not guaranteed to be 100% accurate to the end product.



Vendors & Pricing

Kits

Alphas
The Alphas kit includes all your standard alpha keys + 6.25u and 7u Spacebars. Unless you plan on using another kit with a different SA set, youíll need this kit.



TKL/Specialty
The TKL/Specialty kit covers most keyboards from 60%, 65%, 75%, up to tenkeyless keyboards. HHKB/Tsangan, and even non-standard keyboards like Minila (when purchased with Spacekeys). 66-key boards like Volcano, and even GK64 are also supported with this kit due to their inclusion of 2x 2u and 2.25u shift keys.



Numpad/1800/96-key Add-on
The Numpad kit offered here, when combined with the TKL kit, allows you to fill out full-sized keyboards along with additional keys for 1800 layout and 96-key layout boards.



Ortho/40s Add-on
The Ortho/40s kit provides full coverage for many ortho boards like Planck, Preonic, and Iris (please keep in mind, youíll need the spacekeys kit as well). This kit also acts as an add-on when purchased with the TKL/Specialty kit for other 40-50% users who need additional uniquely sized modifier keys.



Spacekeys
Find all of your space key needs in this kit which provides necessary coverage for ortho, 40-50%, and split-space keyboards. The spacekeys kit includes an additional ďBĒ alpha key for Alice and Alice clones.



Novelties
The novelties kit is full of 50ís mid-century references designed to cover key modifiers. This kit offers full 65% right column and macro-column support so you can deck out your keyboard with classic breeze block designs. ISO users, youíre not forgotten either, with a unique return key design.



ISO
The ISO kit, as you guessed it, adds ISO layout support. Those of you who need it know who you are!


NorDe
The NorDe kit adds additional European/Scandinavian language support. Donít forget to buy the ISO kit if you need it.



Breeze Block Deskmat
A deskmat will be available during the group buy period to accompany SA Skyriter. The breeze block wall concept is fully realized here in a seamless geometric pattern.

New to this, never bought into a GB but what happens if I order 3 kits to complete a split keyboard and the spacebar kit doesn't reach MOQ but the others do? In other words, should I wait for all the kits I want to reach MOQ?

Decided to pull the trigger literally last minute. Wonderful set. Kudos towards cijanzen and anyone who contributed for bringing this idea to life. Very well thought, with a spark of history behind it, something that makes sense, something you know makes it unique. I wish to see more sets like this - inspired by vintage electronics/equipment that led us to modern days, but deserve not to be forgotten. The aircraft vibe is also somehow accurate by the looks. Keyboard could very well hold a hint of some older military instruments/terminals.

Also the execution of the promotion/GB so far is nothing short of excellent and deserves a mention on it's own. Hopefully everything goes well and received set will look just as good.

PS. One more thing - us Leopolders, appreciate kitting choices and that second 2.25u shift in base very much  ;)

hello ! I'm new to the scene and kicking myself for only just discovering this set. I've searched far and wide and can't seem to find a set that I like nearly as much as SA Skyriter.

The Skywriter keycap set is gorgeous! Definitely disappointed that I learned about this keycap set too late. After researching mechanical keyboards for some time now and finally purchasing one, I started looking at keycap sets and this Skyrwiter set is by far my favorite above all the others. Very nice work on setting these up and creating these keycaps. They are absolutely stunning!

vendors normally have extra and sell after they fulfill GB orders, that goes quickly, you need to watch closely, will be a bit stressful ......
some buyer may change mind and sell his/hers at higher price shortly after he/she gets it, that's up to how much you really want it  :cool:

No, I donít have time to manage a discord.

All updates will be posted here and on Keebtalk.
Nothing to report just yet. Colours are being sampled and approved and Iím just waiting on the alphas sample from Signature Plastics before this goes into production.

The title says in production though.  Is that a mistype?

Oh, I see.  Youíve made payment.  Gotcha.  So the ball is in their court.   :thumb:

Status Update: Colours have been approved! I'm incredibly pleased with the results. Here are the samples provided by Signature Plastics.

I have done my best to accurately convey the colours from the samples to the camera to sRGB to your screen. Please keep in mind that all monitors and even web browsers will present colours differently so representational accuracy is certainly not guaranteed.

Suffice to say, These colours match the pantone swatches and original typewriter keycap incredibly well and I think you will all be happy with how they turn out.
