This thread/sale is best enjoyed with some music. It's a pretty long read as always. Here's what I listened to while I made the zine:
https://open.spotify.com/user/gamechops/playlist/6LJeYIjJxwAVelf89YJBUZ?si=pB4SQwHWSSu82W71XR28Sg



I think it's been about a year or two since I've been active at all on geekhack. Haven't thought about keyboards in a while and replaced my creative energy with photography. For those who may not be familiar, I ran Tactile Zine which was a fanzine and love letter to Making Stuff Together. MST has always been my favorite sub-forum and I love the DIY maker culture.

Anyways when I left the community, there was one last thing I wanted to accomplish and didn't: To embed myself with a maker and shoot their process. Later when booper and I were planning to hang out, I realized I had one more chance to finish the unfinished idea for Tactile.

So here's boop!

It's a collaboration between Tactile Zine (my creative venture) and booper. You know, she likes purple, makes keycaps, and has a cool Instagram. She was nice enough to teach me how to make keycaps and host me at her lovely home. Also introduce me to kellybear <3.



boop! is a project documenting the creative and execution process of booper's keycaps over a weekend. booper, kellybear, and myself made keycaps, cooked food, and got inspired at an art museum. Well...maybe not in that order. This sale offers the following:

  • photozine
  • 4x6 print
  • keycaps
  • art print
  • stickers

There will be two bundles with a total run limited to 88. Big Bundles are limited to 50. Small Bundles are limited to 38. I guarantee this is the only time these zines and caps will be offered. When you order the big bundle, you will get a random booper keycap (MX stem) with the Ferro colorway. Sale will be a raffle for the Big Bundle and first come first serve (FCFS) for the Small Bundle.

  • $100 Big Bundle has everything - zine, keycaps, a print, stickers, and a 4x6 print
  • $40 The Small Bundle has - zine, 4x6 print, stickers

Shipping will be a flat-rate of $8 worldwide for the Big Bundle and $3 for the Small Bundle.



I've been posting some progress stuff in the Tactile Zine thread and promised a June drop. Unfortunately this project took a lot more time than expected. If you're interested, you'll have to wait a bit longer. I'm about 90% of the way done but still have to finish folding and stapling the zines together. So sit back, enjoy the progress posts, and let's talk. Maybe you like the project or the zine or booper or photography or ice cream.



Oh and the keycap colorway is based on my grail sneakers. The Diadora n9000s that Hikmet Sugoer made for Solebox in 2015 (#7 on the list).


UPDATES

Update 1 (7/8/18):


Caps available in this sale are:
Ewok, Colonel, Monkey, blanks, and Cosmonaut.

You will receive a random cap. I will not tell you the rarity of the caps. Please note that there are differences in the cap colors because booper tried to do the blue color based on memory for the second run. There's nothing wrong the caps and the colors aren't that far off.

Please note that everything in this sale is literally handmade and you may have some wabi-sabi that goes with that handmade-ness.

Shipping will be a flat rate of $8 anywhere for the Big Bundle and $3 for the Small Bundle.




Update 2 (1743 7/10/18): Email have gone out for the winners of the Big Bundle. Small bundle sale link goes up soon.



Update 3 (2040 7/10/18):

Small Bundle Sale is Open. Small Bundles are limited to 38. The sale is first come first serve.



Update 4: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=96410.msg2638177#msg2638177

Thought it would've been a raffle from the get-go once artisans were mentioned.

Either way, I'm entering for the small set.  :thumb:

I wasn't really thinking until Halverson pointed it out to me lol. I think the Big Bundle will be raffle and the Small will be first come first serve. But part of the charm of this thread is watching me change my mind 3045983475 times :)).

Definitely want a big set if I can have some luck in the *potential* raffle. Any change you can enter for both and only get the small if you don't win the big? Because I definitely want a copy of the zine!

Will it be a raffle for only the large bundle, or the small ones as well?

I think the fairest thing to do is to stagger to sale. Raffle the Big Bundle then invoice the winners then open up the Small Bundles for first come first serve. But sending out 50 invoices is going to be a bit of work. I'm going to have to think about this. I may just go back to first come first serve unfortunately. I've clearly not thought about this enough and I apologize.

It's a photozine but has a bit of writing. Mostly photos that I shot while we created caps over a weekend.

Very dope.
I generally hate all keycaps. Keycaps are for poofs. Real men touchtype on stems. Non-functional artisans are awesome, I use them for the ESC key ... escape is for cowards anyways, real men go frontal assault.
