The WASD set looks fantastic. What profile is it?

I'm considering organizing a GB for some set styles, but need to figure out what people like the most

Maybe different color Megatrqns would be cool?

I think I'll have 8 options, two megatrqn and two blanks for MX and topre

That sounds nice. So those who enter the GB will choose which style and color they want? Or will they be made before-hand?
Yeah they'll choose out of the options I give with either DSA or OEM profile for topre or MX. Obviously the megatrqn won't have that option.

So how much are we talking per cap? I imagine they will be cheaper than usual being in the GB?

$12@20, $10@50, and $7@100.
Shipping would be around $8 CONUS

Sounds pretty fair compared to what they're sold for usually, does that include Megatrqn as well? I hope we get a lot of people in on this for the $7 mark.

Yes that will include the megatrqn (and its debut in topre)

I ordered two of the Topre DSA blanks/customs (possibly two of the first ones purchased from you according to what I saw in one of your reddit comments?) and I'm genuinely excited to use them/see them in person! Plus it'll help me justify spending even more for the group buy.  ;D

The GB is halfway over, and I have a resin kit in the mail, so there should be some cast keycaps coming in the next few weeks, although they won't be very high quality.

Re: XX7 Keycaps. Custom Full-Color Nylon Caps - Poll on Massdrop

Just got a poll up on massdrop, I'm terrible at organizing buys, so I don't mind having a 3rd party help out, and think it'd be a great way to get some steeper discounts and reach some more people.

Is it possible to print legends on your keys in a different color as they are being printed?

Yes it is, but the resolution is fairly low.

Just ordered one of each in Topre on MD! What's the texture like on your HHKB WASD/Fn/Esc keys? Considering putting in an order.

They're grainy like the rest of my caps, but the hexagonal pattern isn't sharp or rough on your fingers.

Hopefully the mass orders doesn't dissuade you from doing more caps!

I already have some planned :D

I'm trying to slowly shift away from made-to-order as my main focus, since I'm off to college next year, and quite likely will move cities.
