« on: Tue, 16 August 2011, 13:37:54 »
For the next group buy, we will do a black key with white "gh" legend. These will be Cherry  MX only. Row 1 (Esc/Fn row). The keys SHOULD look like this:

[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 24505[/ATTACH]


These will be a little more expensive due to the setup cost.  These will likely be pad-printed due to the detail.

USA - First key $9 shipped, additional keys +$5 each.
Non-USA - First key $13 shipped, additional keys +$5 each.

Pre-pay just like always. Send money via paypal (as a gift if at  all possible) to me [at] imav [dot] org . In the subject, put GH  key - August 2011 - GH username. In the body of the message, please include  number of keys, your mailing address, and your geekhack username.

Great!
Any chance to add this key to the group buy round 4 for those, who don't mind waiting years?

The OP should always mention the proposed specs of the key, to help new folks and avoid repeated questions:
1. Material
2. If it is doubleshot, printed, whatever
3. Key profile (which row does it go on?)

And PS: I'd want an entire  "geekhack" set of these to replace my "sdfghjkl" keys. Would be legit

And how does this help an interested user who joined GH in the last couple of weeks and never participated in any group buy, that will be wondering if this is a double shot, which row it fits, etc?  Group buys shouldn't assume all geekhack users are veteran participants.

Sure, if you want to.  Just make sure you make things clear in the msg portion of the PP payment.

sordna, the GH keys almost always sell out...it's mostly the same folks that buy them.  So I am typically not that detailed in the description since the folks that look for the monthly group buy know the deal.

I've stated I will continue to do these as long as there is interest.  Actually, the worse I advertise the group buy, the better chance I have of freeing up some free time.  ;)

Sounds like Unicomp :-) You'd fit right into their marketing / web design team!

I actually like the new design and mixing it up from just the normal "GeekHack" keycap..

Hoping some of these others in the poll get made but maybe with some color to it:



Also Payment Sent.. Thanks iMav for doing this :thumb:

I think he mentioned whic row it fits already. As it is, if you looked up other threads, you'll notice almost, if not all GH keys are R1. take some time to read. The guy's busy enough organizing this to answer questions that have already been posted.

As for your other questions. Didn't he say pad-printed?

Dye-subbed would be awesome. Would cost more, i think.
