[GB] MKC "POP UP" Aluminum Keycaps Group Buy (Shipping)
« on: Tue, 07 August 2012, 00:50:46 »
[Update 9/10]: International order got shipped today. Except those of you who are waiting for the titanium spacebar.

[Update 9/8]: Most US orders were shipped today. Will do international orders on Monday.

[Update 8/27]: The first batch will be shipped to me soon. And I'll send these out to those who have paid first when they arrive. Unfortunately, I just raise the price of Cherry Logo R4 to $28 for each. But for those of you who have paid $15 for the Cherry Logo, you don't need to pay any extra, so don't worry. MKC just told me that the cost of making these Cherry Logo R4s is two times the other R4 keys. He didn't even know until the producing got started. Sorry about this guys. :(

Hello GHers, eventually MKC has made these out. I asked for iMav's permission and let MKC make these about 2 months ago. Finally they're all finished.

Most of them are "POP UP", except the "geekhack" R4 which is engraved.

All of them will be polished, so they look shiny.  Different from the anodized aluminum keycaps.

Please tonice, the Cherry Logo, Terran, and Adorable Skull will be the same as the others, the final product will NOT be in red color.

And they are all OEM profile.


I will stop taking order on September 20th. I'll ask MKC to ship some of them to me lately and I'll ship the orders to those who have submitted their orders.


What's for order:

"geekhack"  Backspace  $30

"geekhack" R4  $15

Dragon R4  $18

Flaming Skull R4  $15

First class is the standard, usually quite slow method of shipping and priority is a faster more safer method meaning you will get it quicker.

Priority international does not come with insurance, at least not that price.

The difference between first class and priority is usually 1-2 weeks faster.

International USPS Priority is they ship with tracking number and the first class without tracking number. if i'm not mistaken the priority takes only few days to arrive and the first class maybe take around 1 week. Correct me if i am wrong

In my experiences priority and first class to Australia both typically take between 6 and 10 days. I have had a first class parcel take 3 weeks though.

Neither Priority nor First Class come with standard tracking numbers.  In fact, to my knowledge, there is NO option to add a tracking number to Priority shipments.  There is, however, a 'Customs Number' that some countries track when entering their country.  The 'Customs Number' shows, at the very least, that the package left the United States.  It will typically not give you any further information than that on the USPS.com website.

I have shipped at least 3-4 packages to AUS (always Priority), and they all generally take the longest in my experience.  Roughly 2-3 weeks.

My experience with various USPS options as someone living in Europe, although it most likely varies from country to country (sorry if it's too OT):

1. First Class Mail International - about 1-2 weeks delivery, can be tracked but only while its still in US, once it goes through the sorting facility out of US there will be no more updates
2. Priority Mail International - delivery time ranges between couple days and a week or so, has different kind of tracking number than First Class and if your local postal service supports it (mine does), can be tracked all the way to the destination
3. Express Mail International - takes only few days, the only sure way to get proper tracking all the way to the destination, but too expensive to be worth it for items of lesser value

Customs however are quite a gamble and can sometimes hold up a package for ages, even if it only took few days to get to your country.

Normally, for international shipping, first class takes about 1-4 weeks, and priority takes about 1-2 weeks.

But I used to use priority to ship a keyboard to an African country and it took 5 weeks! That buyer made a dispute on paypal but eventually I got the money. T_T
