Details about the GB:
  • the GB will start on 6th of November (Friday) at 19:00 CET, and will close after 1 month (4th of December) or until the maximum number of orders is reached
  • FCFS
  • there isnít any MOQ, but the maximum number of slots is 50 for this round (25 in each PCB colour)
  • pricing: barebone kit: 55 EUR; acrylic case kit: 90 EUR (exl. PayPal fees and shipping, which will be calculated individually according to the shipping address)
  • you are able to mix the PCB and the case colours (i.e. black PCB in white translucent case)
