About DSS Profile
Click MORE for more information
More
DSS profile was created by Comptec Inc (now known as Signature Plastics) to fit the universal keycap standards introduced in the mid-80s. Fading out of the spotlight shortly after in favor of its uniform brother DSA, DSS was considered lost to history until its reintroduction in the late 2010s.

Featuring a spherical top (similar to DSA), DSS is sculpted profile, much like the Cherry and SA profiles in that regard. Made from ABS plastic, DSS offers a unique typing experience. If you’ve ever wished that your DSA keycaps were sculpted, your GMK keycaps were spherical, or you just want to try something new… DSS may be right for you.

DSS Carpinteria uses a 1-1-2-3-4-3 sculpt.

To compare DSS to your favorite keycap profiles, check out Keycaps.info

Note: As SP does not offer split spacebars in the DSS profile, DSA blanks are offered as an alternative in the base, 40s, and spacebar kits.

All kits ordered , plus 100 switches and the Asero.  Thank you for adding the UK ISO to the base kit, it means a lot and I will always buy a set that does this.  The colourway of this set is awesome.  Good luck with the GB and I can't wait to receive these sometime in the distant future.

To celebrate the final week of the DSS Carpinteria group-buy, I’m giving away two base kits.

Your challenge: Go out and see the sunset. For those of you who don’t know, the colors used in DSS Carpinteria were originally taken from a photo of a sunset over Carpinteria, California. It remains one of my favorite photos and has quite a bit of sentimental value to me. I want you to have a similar experience of your own.

How to enter:
-Go outside in your city and see the sunset! Hang out for a bit and take it all in.
-Take a photo of the sunset and upload it to Imgur or a similar image-hosting website. The photo must have been taken between June 30 and July 5. Please be honest and don’t cheat!
-Fill out the form below by Monday, July 5 at 2AM Eastern time.

Two base kits will be raffled off via random number generator on Monday, July 5. One base kit is offered by AlphaKeys.ca and another is sponsored by MyKeyboard.eu.

As a reminder — DSS Carpinteria closes on July 8! Find more information in the OP!

Giveaway form: https://forms.gle/ycjGHejN9Fcp4b2A8

I'm confused. The only set that hit minimum order quantity was NorDe, and then the next post says "all kits will be made." What is the purpose of MOQ if it doesn't need to be reached?

Regardless, that's good to hear. I want to confirm, if I wanted a complete set of keys for a full-size US qwerty keyboard, would I order the base and the numbpad?

I also want to ask a question about the color. I'm not certain about my monitor's calibration, but the yellow looks kind of like school bus yellow. Is that generally the right ballpark, or is it more orange like a safety cone?

Oh, it does have to be reached. But it needs to be reached by the vendors. In other words, if vendors are confident they'll be able to sell the additional kits, they might decide to order (MOQ or even above) regardless of the GB outcome.

All kits will be made due to extras. No updates yet on the Asero keycap. For a full-size US QWERTY keyboard, base and numpad should be enough.
The orange is closer to pastel school bus yellow, not exactly safety cone orange as it's more desaturated. Cajun sauce orange?
