[GB] Polycarb Switch Films by Kin (production in progress)
« on: Tue, 05 December 2017, 08:39:42 »
More info about this product in the original IC



1 set (100 films) - 4.25€ / 5$

Shipping service is Deutsche Post (German Post), and DHL for German orders for more than 6 sets.
The package has tracking and is insured up to 25€ by default. Every additional 100€ value adds 2€ / 2.5$ more to shipping cost:

1-6 sets:
Germany - 3€ / 3.5$
International - 6.5€ / 7.75$

7-29 sets:
Germany - 5€ / 6$ (DHL)
International - 8.5€ / 10.25$

30-50 sets:
Germany - 5€ / 6$ (DHL)
International - 10.5€ / 12.75$

PayPal fees are included.

Colors: Black, Clear, White, Pink, Red, Orange, Purple, Teal

MOQ: 100 total sets (all colors combined)

Order Here

You can only enter once, but you can edit your order for as long as the sheet is open. Should you require address changes later on (before I ship them out obviously), email me at oblotzky at gmail dot com with subject starting with "Polycarb Switch Film GB - ".

GB schedule:
- Accepting orders until 08.12.2017 18:00 CET
~48h for payment, the quicker you pay up the fast I can pay Kin
~2 weeks production
~2 weeks shipping from South Korea to me (for reference, Lightsaver V3 took 9 days to get from SK to my doorstep)
couple days for sorting and shipping out

Christmas and New Year might affect these estimates, I'll make sure to provide frequent updates on how this schedule goes along.

I reserve the right to close the GB early should the number of orders exceed my expectations and I start to worry I'm biting off more than I can chew.

Thanks for joining!

You entered your zip code as country ;) from the city and state I can guess the correct country but better if you fix it yourself. Thanks!

Does anyone know if these fit properly in Zealios?

In the past I tried to put stickers in Zealios and they wouldn't close properly. If they don't fit then I can save a bit of money and not have to buy any clear.

They fit but they I think they get a bit too tight. No need for stickers in Gateron switches in my opinion.

Entered for two packs - Black and Clear. If stickers for Gateron isn't really needed then will probably change one or the other pack to something bright. Thanks for the heads up Vegs!

Entered! BTW, if these aren't really necessary with gateron switches is there a specific switch type they are particularly useful for? I bought em just to have some on hand, but I would've assumed everyone was buying em for wobbly gats.

I believe they're generally used for Cherry switch tops. When you open the switches to modify them, the tops get loose and these are meant to take up the space so they don't rattle or wobble. Gateron and clear tops are more brittle, so they don't bend and become loose. They only fix wobble in stopping the switch top from wobbling.

We currently have 77 participants with a total of 482 sets ordered. I'll be closing the GB on Friday (08.12.2017) at 18:00 CET as I feel comfortable fulfilling ~100 orders. Once the GB is closed I'll send out invoices and you'll have 48h to pay that. If you changed your mind, just decline the invoice.

Thanks!
