THREAD CLOSED! GROUP BUY HERE

For those who have already filled it, Please voice your opinion on the GB having BOTH dyesub AND doubleshot.

Triforce has be removed from this thread and it has it's very own thread.



Please fill out this survey if you are interested!!


I bet you guys are serious lurkers and I bet you love keycaps. So how about some Meme keycaps. Let me introduce you to some of the gang:

4chan Clover - Guy Fawkes Mask - Anon
[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31117[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31031[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31127[/ATTACH]

Socially Awkward Penguin (esc and mod) - FFFUUUUUUUUUU - LOLLERSKATES
[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31119[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31126[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31120[/ATTACH]

ORLY? - Mudkipz - Trollface
[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31039[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31121[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31122[/ATTACH]

Updated Trollface: It has more detail, but probably can't be done with double-shot, if best dyesub.
[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31123[/ATTACH]

Shoopdawoop - Shoopdawoop with Lasers - Successful Troll
[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31041[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31042[/ATTACH]   [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31044[/ATTACH]

Zawarudo - New***s can't Triforce
[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31124[/ATTACH]   [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31038[/ATTACH]

Squinting face (I don't know what to name this one)
[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31125[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31342[/ATTACH]

LONGCAT is Loooong (Numberpad Enter/+)
[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31036[/ATTACH]

Pedobear - Pedobear (Peaking)
[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31040[/ATTACH] [ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 31048[/ATTACH]

They are all probably done Double-shot for the Function row. The only exception would be peeking pedobear (Backspace/Capslock/Tab) and Longcat (Numpad Enter/+). Colors need to be decided. So if you have suggestions for better color schemes for any of the designs, please leave them in the comments/survey.

Some of the designs may be too complicated/lose too much detail in doubleshot and I will consider making them dyesub after we see if they can be done in doubleshot.

We are limited to up to the top 8 keys with the highest count of interest will be put forth into the order (provided we get enough interest in them as well)! We may drop it to less depending on the situation. But 8 is the absolute maximum. The designs include the Triforce designs in the other thread.

I'll probably be in for a few of these if there are enough buyers (lower the cost).

1 x 4chan Clover
1 x Guy Fawkes Mask
1 x Anon
1 x FFFUUUUUUUUUU
1 x Trollface (one with more details looks a lot better)
1 x Successful Troll


Again, I might get more depending on price.

I know. The thing is the limitations of Double-shots means I can't make the little gap in the eye as well as all the wrinkles on the face.

It may be possible however to do dyesub of a slightly more detailed one (compared to the one i posted).

Quote from: oneproduct;446655
Would be in for one longcat if he's on the tall numpad keys like you had mentioned in the other thread.
Would also be in for two socially awkward penguin if it's a modifier key, would be a great "Windows" key for Linux users.

Longcat will probably only fit on a long key such as numberpad's enter/+ key. I'll be going for that.

As for the penguin, It'll be a ESC key for now, unless enough people specifically state they want it as a Mod key.

Many of these designs look like they could not be doubleshot anyway. OP might want to consider dyesub instead.

I know that some of them can't be doubleshot. But hopefully with some tweeking later, I can get it to work. I'll consider dyesub for those that can't be done doubleshot.
For the majority of them I've checked the basic guidelines and they conform to it.

The ones that probably don't work as doubleshots:

Trollface
Anon (maybe)
FFFFUUUU
Lollerskates (maybe, but I think it'll work)

Guys, I posted a survey

Please Fill it out. (If you posted which ones you're interested in and qty. you do not have to).

Most of the designs (like only 2-3 arn't) fit the gap/line thickness requirements. But we'll see which ones have problems after we send em to Melissa.

It should be allowed, The use of the 3 triangles like that dates back way before nintendo. Also just calling it something else doesn't avoid copyrights

Thanks hazzeluff for setting this up..Would still love to see the pedobear peeking in dye sub on white keycap since a single brown key might look odd as tab or modifier. Just worried it would not be visible in the pattern it it is in now.

Interested in some of the other keycaps also.. good work :thumb:

I am not too sure about all this. Having 15~ keys up for purchase is going to result in absolutely none of them reaching optimal pricing. There is the concept of oversupplying a market and then there is creating 500x the supply per demand.

I'd be interested in some of these keys if we could agree to get them for a row other than Row 4. A few examples: Row 2 FFFFFFFFUUUUUUU key which you could replace your F key with. Row 1 Mudkip key to replace your M key.

Would anyone else love that, or am I alone here? I look at a lot of these group buys, and it seems like these custom keys are always Row 4. Is there a reason for that? Does SP only do Row 4 keys, or is that just what the majority of people seem to want?

I think most people don't want to replace other row. Func row tends to be a row where keys arn't frequently used so thus people would change em out for some novelty keys. I like your idea, but I don't think you'd be able to get 25+ people to agree on it being done for other than Row 4.

I've been wanting some novelty keys for random things in my letter keys... like T for Psionic Storm and ****... but it just doesn't have a whole lot of weight behind it.

Btw I'm thinking of doing a 50 key minimum on these orders since the 25 key price is ridiculous.

Yeah I agree with not doing 25 cos it'll be 4+/key+setup.
