It's an expensive product... so the taxes will be significantly high in Europe -  he should use a European proxy... The fact that the number of European buyers may be low really has nothing to do with it.

And I'll be somewhere over the Atlantic, nearing France at that time. So it'll be like 6am.

Also, we're on daylight tine, not standard. So that makes it a bit confusing. Do you actually mean pst reconsiderit?

Who is https://switchplate.co/  ?
Have they ever done a GB before?
What about Europe?
Thanks!
I believe Switchplate is OP's (reconsiderit's) storefront.
Same place that did the Southpaw 65%.

This is a small GB, so there probably won't be proxies. But it's just an assumption. You'll have to wait and see what OP says.

Well, your assumptions are pretty much spot on. Switchplate is my storefront and there won't be proxies as I would like to check over the boards myself before they ship.

Any speculation on how much international shipping will be? A DHL option would be really nice to have because they are far more reliable (and careful) than the standard post.

I'll for sure be offering DHL as a shipping option.

Colors are finalized. I should be getting actual pictures of the samples tomorrow and then the physical pieces during the week. For reference, 10190c is the color that is on the first proto that is pictured all the way at the top.



Edit: Silver and black aren't in that picture, but I think you can imagine what those colors look like on aluminum.

So these are all in Pantone 10190 C? It looks pinkish-grey in the top photos & blueish-grey in the bottom.

(Attachment Link)

I should've clarified, but the renders are NOT in 10190c. The physical one at the bottom and all the other photos of that board (like the ones in the album) are 10190c

Edit: formatting

Also, it is a pretty cold grey in person. I wouldn't say blue-grey though.

I'll upload some pictures of the colors against white paper once I receive the samples.

I would recommend USPS or DHL for Canada as they are decently quick and don't have any extra fees by the time the package arrives at your door.

One little heads up, but shipping rates might seem a little high. This is because I'll be packing the boards in boxes with custom foam with insurance. Keep in mind that the boards, unbuilt start at around 6lbs.

I don't know how you're able to get that link since I try to navigate from the home page and couldn't find anything about the GB after 12:00am.

But thanks, I placed an order.  I guess I make it if it is available to order?

I have around 35 spots left, so not sure how fast those will fill up but you should have some time if you're interested in one.

The acrylic halfplate has been taken out because of how fragile it is. The acrylic is only 1.5mm acrylic and the halfplate has a lack of supporting material between the points where force is applied and where the plate mounts to. I've opted to make it a full plate which should be a slightly different feel. More consistent across the whole board. If you're still interested in a half plate, then the aluminum one is still an option.

Half plates are only available in the aluminum options, but no, there should be plenty left.

For engraving, will the engraved pattern be black? Or will it all be the brass color? Sorry, just deciding on a pattern.
