[IC] LED-Window keycaps
« on: Wed, 04 December 2013, 20:30:32 »
**It is just a interest check**
I don't know how to manage a group buy, and I think I don't have enough time for it, so I can't run it.  I hope someone will.


It is not easy to find LED-Window keycaps, and I think a group buy of it will sound nice.  So here is the interest check.



If you don't know what is LED-Window keycaps, here is a picture of it.  Picture from Google.

Here are few questions

1. What color?

2. Blank or legend(have letters/words on it) ?

3. Row 1(top row) or caps lock or both?

4. GMK or SP?

I'd like to see this happen.  I think the easiest way to make it work is use the most common colors that people might want/have so that more people will buy.  So something like beige, dolch, black, etc.

Edit:  structured, numbered response.
1. beige, dolch, black, etc.
2. legend
3. both!
4. GMK

I'd be in for sure. Nothing I love more than windowed lock keys.
1. Classic black on beige
2. both
3. All three lock keys + F row + maybe ESC?
4. GMK.
I doubt it would happen.

I can handle this.

Also, due to the high MOQ of GMK, I'd suggest us to do the blank only.

I'd be down for Beige or Dolch keys.  Blank ones, function row.

I would contact GMK and find out what the MOQ is for blank windowed keys.  I bet they are really cheap and you could sell them in packs of like 20 and we'd hit the MOQ quickly.

I'm interested in these if they're GMK caps. I'd love to get them pad-printed with GeekHack on them but blanks are fine.

Also, SP does have the ability to make these. I have a few SP windowed caps shown here.

I'm going to re-organize sets and options on the black/grey buy in January. So there is already black windowed keys. I may add dark grey (Doclh/Skidata) base color blank windowed caps selection as add on option since doing that color base anyway.

I'd be interested in this would be cool to get colours so that it works with the recent Tai Hao GB but we probably wouldn't get enough people.

1. The Tai Hao colours were Black, Green, Red, Blue, and Yellow.

2. Blank

3. R1 and CapsLock

4. New here so don't really know difference between or what is GMK and SP

I'd be 100% in for almost anything GMK / Windowed

I'd like to see some G80-2100 style Cherry Logo keycaps.

Preach. They were done small time over in Korea, but now I think the cherry logo has it's copyright problems....seeing as GMK would be making/profitting from that...I hope it could happen but I doubt it can

The GroupBuy? not very expensive at all, but a limited number.

I think you got that $60 number from Tin who has one

you can find yourself an original 2100 and just grab one there..but that would mean stripping the board of it's originality  :blank: :blank:

Ah, alright thanks, GMK seems superior build but TaiHao looks same as SP and they seem good too for their price.

I would be interested in this a lot:

1. R1 x1 windowed blanks

2. GMK only

3. 4 of each per set with the color keys from the original set, for example Dolch you can have an option of 2 different color sets ( dark grey and the olive grey 4 keys per set)  would be best and would be easier to hit MOQ this way me thinks.


4. Sets I would like to see for to match the GMK sets, Dolch , Skidata ( I think the Skidata dark grey is same as the Dolch dark grey), Beige classic, possible Handerbeit set (maybe this set can have 1 of each color per keycap)

Right, sourcing the add on pack (windowed caps locks, 1.5 mods, 7x space, 1.75 shift, ISO enter, and 6x top row windowed key) from GMK, since the PBT factory doesn't have any of those things.

Might want to create a separate thread in order for people to find it. I stopped looking in that PBT thread as I have no interest in those sets. I would never have thought of looking in the PBT thread for windowed ABS cherry caps so you might be loosing out on a few by merging it into that thread.
