Is your sign-up site working correctly? I entered my information and clicked "Claim your gift now!" but I didn't get any sort of notification that I signed up correctly or received the early bird voucher. Essentially, nothing happened.

It's not working, and you're running your Symfony app in dev mode (which has exposed all your ENV vars on the error page, including all your secret keys and mail passwords.)

He's right, I just managed to get that error on mobile. You should fix that ASAP.

1. How do they look like when seen from sides? Seems like you won't catch Charmender and Squirtle face that way.

2. $135 worth of 3 caps meaning $45 each? Are you sure you want to declare the price before hearing back from the pokemon company regarding the license? Pretty bold move if you ask me.

Looks like Laravel to me :)

@S_Craft_Studio, please fix your site! We can all see your Google keys, Google recaptcha, paypal and mailchimp. You're going to need to re-generate them.

We will have more photos prepared soon. Working hard on them. Confirmed that it's 35$ per cap, and early birds will get it at 29$ only.

The sale is actually live! If you registered your email, you should have received one with a promo code (17% off). I ordered mine already. Price is $35 per key without the promo code. Shipping is $9.

3. What does first batch mean? Will there be more batches with same pokemon or different one?

4. I hope it won't come to this, but let's say pokemon company does not allow you to sell these, are you going to refund the purchases?

There are so many artisans selling products without licences,  are you getting worried about that? Other people selling hundreds of keycaps of pokemons like Gengar/Koffing or other stuff Diablo, Blizzard content, Fallout...

I work at a company that relies on its IP. I won't say which, but you've heard of it, your grandparents have heard of it, and your kids have heard of it. I'm an attorney for that company. Yes, having a license for IP is important to me and I haven't bought artisans where they clearly didn't have a license. Maybe protecting IP isn't important to your livelihood, but it is to mine.

Add in that this is their first GB, they had apparently massive security issues with their site, and people are totally justified being nervous about this.

It is not. I'm not affiliated with Nintendo or the Pokemon Company or any one with rights to the Pokemon brand, etc. I'd be surprised if your grandparents had heard of Pokemon, but hey, I don't know your grandparents. :-)

Hi there,

Our email system got messed up a little bit but you can always take a look at your order on the Dashboard :D But your order is registered with DHL ;)

I'll put my responses as below:
1) We will try our best to help you avoid taxes at custom
2) No they won't be stocked after the GB. Well that's what we plan for now
3) We were planning on having 2nd batch but for now we think we should stop receiving orders so we can focus on making them :) Or else, all orders will be delayed and it's not going to end well :(

It's best to take in as many orders as you can and then focus on those, do a great job producing them and earn a solid reputation as an artisan maker in the community. The alternative is taking in way too many orders, stretching yourselves thin, producing poor quality artisans or missing deadlines, and gaining a poor reputation within the community. As a new artisan maker, this is your first shot so make it count because reputation matters here. You've already had enough issues with the website to make alot of people nervous and anxious, and many have still decided to take a chance and buy from you (including myself) - don't make us regret putting some faith in you. That said, I look forward to receiving the artisans I ordered since I'm a huge fan of Pokemon.

Thank you for your trust in us! I've been secretly laying low in this community but I understand how important it is to have a clean, great keycap on hand. We put a quota on the quantity so we can focus on them!

how is this not IP infringement?

Well, it definitely is if they don't have explicit permission. I didn't mean to start anything with my previous post; I'm just worried they could wind up losing money from this project. I think the caps look absolutely stunning; I just don't want these to wind up giving the makers more hassle than they bargained for. Best-case scenario if they don't get a license is TPC sends them a C&D and that's the end of it.

I hope they do get permission and people are able to get more of these cool caps.

I think the problem is that OP doesn't seem to care

I don't quite understand why IP is such a big concern all of the sudden. Of all the Disney, anime, Cartoon Network, and even other Pokemon keycaps to come before this, why are we only having this discussion now, in this thread?

Edit: Not defending OP. I just don't see what's so different about this GB.

Maybe read previous posts or research first before commenting. OP already sent an email to pokemon company, does that look like not caring to you? There's also that gengar and koffin artisan that have been going around the market for longer period of time than this one already.

Because the hobby has gotten bigger and new people have been introduced to it? And those people (*raises hand*) care about these things.

I'll also say that I wasn't around for Gengar or Koffing, but the folks here are going beyond the characters' names and are advertising them as Pokemon and using official Pokemon logos. Did Gengar or Koffing artisans do that?

Look, I was one of the people that originally asked about the license given that of all the companies you mention, Nintendo is probably the most litigious. And the artisan folks gave an honest answer ("we've reached out, not haven't heard back"). I, for myself, was going to forgo these, as cool as they are,  because that's the right choice for me. I wasn't going to say anything other than my original ask about the license - if other people are ok with that, who am I to judge? Then the makers had the security issue with their website. I still didn't say anything because it didn't affect me.

But then someone chirped up asking why people were nervous all of a sudden so I felt it was appropriate to point out a) the makers didn't have a license b) this is the company's first GB and c) they had security issues. Any one of these is sufficient for me to be at least a little skeptical. Given that there are three red flags here, I spoke up to point that out. That's all.

I hope the GB goes well, nobody gets sued, everybody gets and loves their keycaps. Really, I do. But I think artisansin general need to be concerned about infringing IP as the hobby gets bigger and attracts more attention/scrutiny.

Thank you. Yes we have contacted them and been discussing :D
