geekhack key group buy - Feb 2011
« on: Wed, 02 February 2011, 19:02:42 »
For the next group buy, we will do a blue key with white lettering.  These will be Cherry MX only.  I have plenty of orange on black Alps keys left, if you want some of them.

USA - First key $7 shipped, additional keys +$4 each.
Non-USA - First key $11 shipped, additional keys +$4 each.

Pre-pay just like the last batch. Send money via paypal (as a gift if at all possible) to herzog [at] uhhh [dot] org . Please include number of keys, your mailing address, and your geekhack alias/username.

are we still doing the "Geek Hack" GH key? :P
I was hoping for some other letters or figures on the key, any possibilities?

Sorry, I'll leave it to other GHers to organize such group buys.  I'll do a monthly GH key order for as long as there is demand...switching up color schemes for variety.

I'm still kicking myself for missing last month's buy. Didn't realize it was a different color. I think I'll skip this months, but how about white lettering on orange for next month?

While you can't dye white, what stops them from, say, dying an inverse pattern - dye a design that's the entire cap minus the desired white areas?  It might be clumsy, but I could see it at least doing "top is black with white text, sides are white" - painting the sides black is trivial

White lettering on orange keys sounds like a good option for next month.  Anyone have s strong opinion about a different color scheme?

Wow, those went fast. White on orange sounds good to me for the next order. After that I'd love to see something light-ish on white, like a lilac to match the popular WASD keys. I need something that won't look out of place on my white ML-87.

I would actually like to see an opposite color scheme of the first geekhack keys that were white lettering on red keys. So I'd like red lettering on white keys. This could be done in the later group buys though, since I think the orange key sounds like a good one too.

I know I replied in PM already, but posting here just in case anyone else was curious. You can order them, but shipping will make it fairly expensive unless you're already making a taobao order. You can see my order threads here and here.

SP doesn't have a decent pink they can use for doubleshots, sadly... :( I believe they only have one pink, and it's kind of a dingy pastel.
