[Preview] Keycap Storage/Display boards!
« on: Sun, 11 August 2013, 12:50:38 »
As promised in the How do you store your keycaps thread, we're finally able to release a sneak peek of the boxes we've been teasing you guys about!

Info:
-Credits go to our new Chinese partner/vendor, Buddha who designed and produced the keyboard boxes!
-Each pallet box contains 2 boards to hold your keycaps(one board for a base set and another for numpad, extra keys, etc.)
-Display boards are made out of very high quality EVA foam material(the same material used in top of the line soccer cleats)
-We will be receiving the new revised version 2 which improves on more compact spacing and cleaner layout!
-Currently being imported with an ETA of 4-5 weeks.

Without further ado~ Enjoy ;]

We're working on the pricing and will update when we come to a final decision~
Please keep in mind the EVA foam used is very high quality material. It doesn't mean it's going to be ridiculous overpricing but we're trying to price these as fair as possible so please do not worry!
Here are just a few fun facts about EVA foam!
-It's nearly indestructible
-Flexible but always able to retain it's original shape
-VERY Dense and durable.
-Low water absorption and extremely easy to clean
 

Edit: It's also very easy to paint for those who want to customize their boards!

Sounds great! I can only imagine myself ever needing to store 3-4 sets at a time so the longer lasting the better, don't mind paying for quality.
It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

Another fun fact :]
Through testing the display boards Buddha came across some interesting discoveries.

-In most cases, old cherry keycap sets were found to be fake/altered.
     -When storing the old cherry keycaps, the keycaps changed from white to yellow.
     -Upon further investigation it was found that some vendors have added chemicals to old aged keycaps to make them look brand new and thus overpricing them.
     -High quality keycaps including our keycaps (SP, BSP,GMK ) were found to be unaffected by this and proved to be very well made with no alterations or added chemicals.
-Plastidip is compatible with the boards for anyone interested in customization!

A killer feature for these would be indefinite availability.

Like we'd buy a couple now, acquire another keycap set in 12 months, try to buy another box then only to find out that they are no longer available.

Don't worry we guarantee unlimited availability with periodic restocks depending on how well they sell!
We currently have 200 boxes being prepared for our first batch!

If our shipping estimates are right, the boxes should be available to add onto your shipment of the Bumble Bee Group Buy.

Good stuff, I'll definitely buy some if I can combine shipping!

I could use like 15 of these boxes. Depending on the final pricing I might even buy that many.

Shipping to EU will probably kill me though...

Here I am coming to KeyPop vendor forum expecting an update to the Bumblebee thread, and instead I find this little gem.  I don't think the 200 units will take long to move, especially considering how many key sets most users at GH have.

They should be arriving within the next week or two or in the worst case scenario, available when the bumblebee keysets are done(approximately 1 month)

The yellow is fantastic.  Green also :)

Unfortunately these will probably cost a fortune to ship to Australia.

We're not exactly sure if 2 60% will fit as the 2nd board has extra space for extra novelty keys. It was not designed in mind to contain 2 60% keys but it may be possible.

Our mistake...
I completely forgot that our display boards are not ready yet.
We discovered that our first shipment only contained the bottom slab of the display box.
We are still waiting for the top slab shipments to come.

It should be no longer than another 2 weeks. Sorry about that!

$9.99
We've honestly given it a lot of thought. EVA Foam is not cheap and the boxes are incredibly of high quality(especially when it comes to robustness and thickness) compared to other keyboard boxes I've compared to.
We aren't receiving much profit from each box so please be understanding. You are paying for true quality. 
We may have to increase the price later on in the future but we promise the price will be $9.99 as an introductory promotional(possibly permanent) price.

I'm sorry for the mistake earlier. It's been an incredibly crazy week for us. We had to sort over 30,000 keycaps and ship out all the pre-orders.

Looking awesome keypop!!! But I think you guys could of keep prices even more competitive if lets say in a box you can store 6 or even 10 pieces. Not that this is bad, but 1 box for 4-5 different keycap sets would of make more sense and prices could of been adjusted a bit. Not saying that price is bad as of now.... but this way we have a box and 2 pieces of foam for 1 keycap set.... instead lets say 1 box 10 foam pieces for 5 keycap sets.

Yeah... I ordered 6... I figured that was the sweet spot w.r.t. shipping to Canada. 

When I started my order the stock meter was full.  When I finished, it was down to about 2/3.  I figured they were either flying off the shelves, or they only had 18 of them.  :p

How much is international shipping for these boards? How many boards can be shipped for the lowest price?

We can ship up to 4 boards for the lowest price. Anything higher and we'll have to utilize custom rates as those require larger shipping boxes than the ones we normally carry.

The trial sale of 50 units was to check and see if the shipping costs were calculated fairly. For some customers they were perfect while others were a bit unfair(we have already refunded those buyers the rightful amount). If you did not receive a refund it is because you were charged the appropriate amount). After this initial sale we have adjusted the shipping costs to more fair rates.

We're aware that our shipping costs are upsetting some users but please understand that these boxes are quite heavy(mainly due to the high quality cardboard box shell and dense EVA Foam) compared to most display case boxes. Each box weighs roughly 7~7.5 ounces and the actual shipping box (14x8x4 inches) weighs roughly 8 ounces so the shipping costs are definitely not cheap(blame the United States Post Office, not us).The shipping costs we're currently charging are pretty much close if not exactly the amount we need to ship them out to customers.

Shipping for US starts at $6.99 (We are strictly shipping these via Priority Mail because First Class Mail is not allowed for packages exceeding 13 ounces) and $1.99 for each additional box.
Shipping for Canada starts at $12.99 and $2.99 for each additional box
Shipping for all other International Orders starts at $14.99 and $2.99 for each additional box

I am personally making sure that if a customer overpays in shipping costs, we immediately refund them the appropriate amount. For those who ordered more than 4 keycap display cases please be patient as we are acquiring the adequate shipping materials for your orders. We will then refund your shipping costs if it turns out to be cheaper.

Hope this helps everyone!

My two boxes arrived earlier this morning. I was assuming that the EVA foam had the cut outs already removed, but to my joy they are simply pre-cut and you can remove sections that you want. I also enjoy the adhesive behind primary layers for the backings. What took me a bit to figure out was how would you remove each layer if you could barely insert a finger to access the layers and not rustle up the keycaps. I naturally began to think sherryton/hazel's storage box idea of having a little tab so you can pull up each layer easily from top view is more ideal. But then I looked at the tab/slit area where you lock down the top of the case. The hole is large enough so you can see the bottom layer so you can easily push the bottom layer up and grab the top portion/layer that holds the alphas and modifiers. It makes sense and is more (I'm just assuming here) cost efficient rather than including a pull tab attached to each layer.

I didn't want to order more than 2 boxes since you guys are doing a demo run and wanted to give others a chance to grab some. If it's worth anything, I believe these boxes are excellent for the price. Looking forward to when you guys release the colored versions / larger quantity release. I'll be grabbing several more then. Great job guys!

Is there a reason you increased the price for these cases?

I know it's high quality and everything, but now I feel kinda "cheated" for not getting into the first batch for no particular reason other than being asleep while it was offered.

At these prices plus shipping it's really hard to justify a purchase for international buyers :(

Maybe I wait for the colored ones hoping they will be offered for 10$ again ;)

ya, when he posted that, I thought it got bumped up by 200% or something.


I'm going to take the time to be an ******* and state that $2 isn't even a single novelty cap.  you would need to buy TEN boxes to lose $20.

$2 is not going to make or break a purchase. especially, when shipping to canada is more than the cost of the box.

how about when you compare it to competitors? (what competitors?)

It's just one box is now 27$ incl. shipping for me which is just too much. Sure, 2$ plus (=20% increase) is not the world, but it was expensive for me before and I just want to know why the price was increased. They could have offered it for 12$ initially but they didn't, so I am curious.

I spend too much on keyboard stuff anyway and I simply don't want to "waste" my keyboard budget for something I don't really need.

So is it $2 more because you were losing money? Or did you add $2 because they sold so fast it makes sense to charge more?

From what I can see, it was simply a promotional price for the first batch. Think of it as the early bird special if you will. Those who are subscribed to the newsletter got first pick at the boxes at a lower price for the first round of production. In the original newsletter, it was even stated that the $10 was just a promotional price.

Is there a reason you increased the price for these cases?

I know it's high quality and everything, but now I feel kinda "cheated" for not getting into the first batch for no particular reason other than being asleep while it was offered.

At these prices plus shipping it's really hard to justify a purchase for international buyers :(

Maybe I wait for the colored ones hoping they will be offered for 10$ again ;)

We only had 200 boxes total and the promotional price was barely getting us much profit after paypal fees/shipping costs. I'm sorry you feel cheated. We just couldn't afford to continue selling the boxes at that price. We figured the first 50 would be plenty for anyone whether international or domestic  and we didn't expect them to sell out so quickly.

Fair enough :)

I'll definitely will wait for the colored cases and make my final decision then.

Maybe you can offer some kind of bundles like "buy 2 cases get a novelty key of choice for free" or something like that ;)

Got mine today!
They're nice. I'll have to wait for some better sets to put in there but in the meantime I have my old Keycool stock caps in one of them.
Does anybody want to see some pictures?

You need to ask that around here? ;)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thats incorrect. Its in HHKBs slogan, but when Americas cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Mine arrived at my doorsteps today! Thanks Keypop for the freebie Chickobo keycap  ;D :thumb: I was surprised the "FRAGILE" sticker was actually taken seriously. Usually boxes end up getting bumped and scratched.

BTW, sorry for noob question, but what profile are these? I'm guessing DCS?
Sorry, phone pic for now.

I got mine today (international)!  And then I promptly filled four of them! 

Mini-review:
-- These are really nice.  High-quality cardboard & foam.  Shipped quickly & as cheaply as possible.
-- The top layer is set up to hold the ESC thru F12 (and below) part of a standard ANSI layout... with one spot left over (novelty ESC?).  The second layer has cutouts for the arrow/navigation block & numpad, plus cutouts for any extras you may have... Tsangan kit, stepped capslocks, ISO enter, etc.  You shouldn't have trouble accommodating anything but the most extreme sets.
-- I recommend saving some of the smaller bits of cutout foam to fill gaps in the second layer (since you're less likely to fill it completely).
-- It's a bit tricky to get the caps in sometimes... they're held fairly securely by the foam at the top/bottom edges.  But this means that they don't move around much, even if you shake the box.

Suggestions for improvements:
1. I'd probably go with a smooth surface on the "bottom" of each layer, rather than foam.  (Or just a smooth surface stuck to the existing piece of foam.)
-- The foam makes it hard to "slide" keys along the rows (important when you're inserting them out of order).
-- I don't think this would affect the fit (currently nice & tight), but it might make it easier to put the caps in, since the edges of the caps wouldn't grip the bottom.

2. Add a couple of "handles" to make it easier to lift the top layer.
-- It need not be fancy; even something as simple as a tab of paper (with a sticky part to attach to the bottom of the top layer) for each side.
-- An alternative might be to cut a couple of small notches along the side of the top layer... just enough to get your fingers into to allow you to lift the layer.

3. Add something to cover the top layer...
-- There's currently a small gap between the top layer and the top of the box when closed... i.e., the box is just slightly too tall.
-- Could be easily filled with a loose piece of foam or corrugated cardboard.
-- If your keys are shaken around, a few of them can come loose (most are OK... the fit is pretty tight, as I mentioned).
-- I think none of them would come loose with something to fill this gap.  Or at least there'd be nowhere for them to go... :)

These are all pretty minor... hard to improve much on what is already a terrific product!

Bottom-line:  I heartily recommend these to anyone who has a bunch of complete sets and wants to store them in something better than a ziplock (and at a reasonable price).

And here's my CCnG set in the case.  Lots of room left for a Tsangan kit (if I had it) or something.  (Note how I've saved a few bits of foam to fill the empty spaces.)

I'm beginning to think that keycaps breed & multiply when you're not looking.  :)

just got my set of 3 and assembled one.  I actually didn't realize assembly was needed, but it's a minor concern at best; literally, punch out + squeeze together.

these things are great; If I had to say anything, they should be made less tight (the foam is too tight against the sides of the box), the box is oddly hard to actually open and it always feels like i'm going to rip the thing in half.  As well, it'd be great to see the letters printed in the correct places for all the standard 104 keys.  I think having some themed boxes would be great as well; a satin black box (or w/e ducky does with theirs) with orange foam inserts would look as classy and geekhacky as hell.

the punchouts feel like they would make good packing material (it's always funny seeing shipping materials and boxes being shipped in other packing material).

let's be clear, I said a bunch of stuff, but that was cause I felt like using my keyboard today;  for the price keypop is offering, they're a great buy as it is.

Very glad to hear you're satisfied with the box! We'll definitely look into the box being hard to open issue!
