[IC] Handmade Keyboard Bags by G.C.W. Round 2
« on: Sun, 06 December 2020, 06:27:33 »
O V E R V I E W
We proudly welcome you to our 2nd Group Buy! We are glad you found us =)
I started the keyboard game back in 2011 and can call myself a lucky guy whose wife is a professional fashion designer.
I asked her to make me a bag to keep my keyboards safe for storage and transport.
So we came up with the keyboard bags we are presenting you today.
We ran a Group Buy for the first time in Spring 2020 and it was so much fun that we decided to run another Group Buy.
We hope you enjoy this process as much as we do!

First GB: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=105047.0

It all started with the A-Team Style keyboard bag:
257200-0

You see that the first prototype was a good shot and represents to 90% the
keyboard bags that we are offering in this Group Buy.

Of course we enhanced it a bit since then: cleaner and sturdier stitching, more color
options, more material options, label options and a safety lip because of the zipper:
257202-1

You can choose between 3 styles: Classic, Classic Deluxe and Premium.

You can choose the colors and materials for: the main body, the outer pocket,
the inner material, the label and the accent line:
257210-2257212-3

The inner material is made out of printed cotton canvas which is both durable and
nice to work with.

For the accent line you can choose between soft imitation leather and cork:
257214-4

You can personalize your bag with an optional custom label. Here you can have stitched
up to 3 characters or numbers. The dots Between the characters are optional. You can also
choose the color of the label.
257216-5

For the zipper we use YKK zippers, since from experience they offer the best quality.

The Classic
The Classic bag is made out of soft imitation leather (main body + outer pocket + accent line).
257204-6

The Classic Deluxe N E W
The Classic Deluxe is our whole new creation. It is made of soft imitation leather, but offers additionally
a square stitching and padding for the outer pocket which gives it a more premium feel
and safety for your keyboard.
257206-7

The Premium
The Premium bag is made out of soft imitation suede leather. It has a square stitching
and padding of the whole side under the outer pocket to give even more safety to your keyboard.
257208-8

Corona had an impact on our 1st Group Buy.
But shipping options have normalized in the mean time.
So they should be the same as in the 1st Group Buy:

Shipping prices (from Germany):
Germany: 5,49
EU: 11,39
Switzerland: 16,70
Rest of the world: 19,89 ($23)

257218-9

Approx. start date:
Around Christmas

Ooofff! 23 dollars for the rest of the world...that might be a turn off for me. You don't have logistics partners in the US I am guessing

Cool bags, but I would avoid metal zippers as they may potentially scratch the keyboard.

A solution could be a proxy.

A group shipping would make sense if enough people share the shipping costs.

Nice! Would love to have one of your bags to protect my upcoming Rama . That tag can be something else or is it just for your branding?

You mean the tag that is hanging on the zipper? We can surely find a solution for you =)

Are there options for variability in sizing? For say 40% and such...

Prices should be around the same as in the 1st GB, depending on current exchange rate Euro/USD.
