INTEREST CHECK FORM

Hello everybody!
I'm currently running an interest check on 1u R1 and 1.75u R3 Cherry topographic novelty keys.

The prices should be:
1.75u:
Brass: $55
Black Anodized Aluminum: $40
Aluminum: $45

1u:
Aluminum: $35
Black Anodized Aluminum: $32
Brass: $45

I'm likely going to offer a package deal for those who purchase a 1u and 1.75u set.

Shipping should be around $5 for the US, $10 for Canada, and around $15 for international.

Group buy to launch next week and run until prototypes are done to ensure dimensions and finish (around 5 weeks).

Weight (both the 1u and 1.75u weigh almost the exact same due to the thickness difference):
Aluminum: ~3.8g
Brass: ~12g

Note:
The triangle in the design is a placeholder while I decide on a logo. The gray plasticky render is to show the details and depth of the surface without all the reflections. Hopefully I can do another round later on and introduce a spacebar and enter key (as many requested). Thank you!

UPDATE:
In talks with my manufacturer about PVD coating the brass keycaps, should have a price for it soon.

Yes. I may not be a huge fan of this particular topographic design for the 1.75u, but this will look sick on a keeb.

Beautiful. A spacebar or enter key would be slick

Do you think you'll make more colors and patters? I'd love to see some dark purple action in there, and I'm sure other people would love to see some of their favorite colors as well. I love it though, and I definitely want to pick one up!

I'd love to! The only issue is reaching the MOQ for each variety, that's why I went with the black. Thank you for the support!

nice, did you consider breaking the keycap edge with the pattern?

I feel like these would look even better if there was a proper gradation of height on the contour lines, like this:

I actually did originally! I thought the border cleaned up the design a bit and made it look better overall.

I'll try it out! I experimented with it before it had the border and I didn't like the result, but it might work with the border now.
