We want those awesome business cards NOW!! ;)

+1

Were they a limited item only for KeyCon 2013 attendees?

Can we, maybe, order one from the web site?

They will be available for sale on TechKeys, but not just yet.

Sweet :)

Where did the inspiration for making it come from, if you don't mind my asking?

Here's an idea for two keys:

A 'grue' key: Just a black key, doubleshot, with two eyes and perhaps a bit of a smile. You should all know what a grue is, if not, for shame.

And, of course, a 'Z' for 'Zork':

57841-2

UV printing for the stone-masonry 'Z' or maybe use the more simple, but more stylized 'Z'?

Any chance of doing discounts for larger quantities of clear switch covers?

I typically offer price breaks (when asked) on orders that are larger than a standard volume.

PM me if you are interested in placing a bulk order.

I already made a thread so it would be more visible, but thought I would also post it here since this is the Suggestion Box.

Please re-stock the laminated GH keycap mats.

Man - those were great but they were a major pain to ship.  I ended up using a giant bubble mailer, but there were so many issues of them either being crammed into mailboxes and damaged or people damaging them when cutting the bubble mailer open.

By the time I add in all the extra cost for shipping with postage rates what they are, I don't think they would be a good value.

I know I personally wouldn't mind paying for the extra shipping/postage.

There isn't anywhere close to me that I can find to print/laminate for me.  Fedex bought Kinkos.

No luck with tube mailers?

Mine is fairly stiff - it would need to be a reasonably large tube mailer, which might push the price up a bit.

Plus you'd have to hope it would unfurl once unpackaged.

How about one of those thin and wide boxes? I got my switches shipped that way, seems perfect for something like this.

you can make a high quality print and lamination at most FedEx/Kinkos... I think this is a good idea for a boxed set, but on its own it's a drain of resources unless the cost is drastically inflated.
60% keyboards, 100% of the time.
