an introduction
« on: Sun, 05 April 2015, 08:59:12 »
after keeping this a secret for a long time, i am very proud to introduce a new product to you guys we will be releasing soon

[CTRL]ALT has been working very closely in collaboration with JTKeycaps to produce an alternative to the current keycap manufacturers, looking to match both the quality and flexibility of others in the marketplace





these are just a few teaser shots for now, and i will be showing more over the coming days

these are currently double shot abs in cherry profile and thickness as well as the capability to include custom legends

we wont be revealing the price just yet, but it will be considerably cheaper than other alternatives on the market

slowly over the coming weeks i will release info on the initial colorways we will offer
I'M IN THE PROCESS OF MOVING RIGHT NOW, WILL BE BACK AROUND SOON

And this was why Miami was your last PMK buy, I knew something was up, as GMK would get expensive for a lot of sets, awesome! And I see scoops!

When you say custom legends, do you mean the ability to do one offs like WASD, or something still needing a high MOQ?

Doubleshot with custom legends - an industry first?

Way to shake up the industry, guys :D

Beyond awesome, I hope if goes really well for you :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada
