[GB] SA Bla_ks (Black & White Blanks) - Extras OPEN
« on: Wed, 05 December 2018, 12:24:21 »


May 10:
Extras opened.

May 8:
Finally counted extras.
Will go live May 10, 9:30am PST here: https://missing-key.myshopify.com/
MyKeyboard.eu will also have extras at some point...

May 3:
Int'l shipping invoices are all out.  When you pay, I'll ship.  Let me know if I missed you, or accidentally sent you one.
Working on sorting / counting extras now.  (And hoping there are no 'missing-key's in current orders)

Apr 30:
Dropped off most Shopify orders today.  There was a weird issue 4 packages: 2 labels didn't want to print, 1 is an unusual int'l, and 1 needs a bigger box.
I'll work on those, and PayPal orders tonight too.  Expect shipping invoices within a day or two.  Packaging took a little longer than I expected, due to building boxes and taping them, etc.

Apr 26:
Done sorting caps into kits.  Reverifying their weight (certainly mis-created some kits) and labeling. 
Also, need to organize orders into packing lists, etc.

Apr 15:
Caps are here, now I sort.

SP has shipped; should be here Monday or so.  Then I have to sort...

After some confusion over the invoice, SP has confirmed production is started and 'should' ship out on April 11.  Sorry for this delay.  This means I'll likely ship in Late April / Early May (Shipping transit + 2 weeks sorting).

MOQ HIT! CLOSED!

Order Via:

Shopify: https://missing-key.myshopify.com/
-or-
Google Form: https://goo.gl/forms/3rEVxWANEjlbNyLB3
-or-
EU Proxy: https://mykeyboard.eu/catalogue/category/sa-blanks-gb_132/

Are you frustrated with so many symbols and legends on your keyboard?  Are all the colors on your keycaps confusing you, blinding you, or making you nauseated?  Do you know where the all the keys are anyway?  Do you really wish you had some SA caps with split space, 40's, ISO Enter, and / or otho support OUT OF THE BOX?

If you answered YES to any of the above, I HAVE THE PRODUCT FOR YOU: BLANK KEYCAPS!!!!

More

Sculpted in 1-1-2-3-4-3: The most comfortable profile.  Scientifically demonstrated. 

Colors are:
Black - NN, the same color as SA Pulse.
White - WFK, the same color as SA Oblivion Hagoromo.

I'd recommend the Shopify for US folks, and the Google Form for international folks (since a proxy can show up and make shipping 'different').

Invoices will be sent to forms folks when their kits all reach MOQ.  You will have a week to pay, or I will cancel your order (and become annoyed at you).  Shipping will be billed later for these orders.

Times:
Jan 13: Orders close, Submit order to Signature Plastics for manufacturing.
8-12 weeks: Manufacturing.
1 week: Shipping to me.
2 weeks: Sorting / packing.
That puts us around April 15th roughly for shipping.

I'll be ordering extras for a lot of the kits.

Proxies:
EU Proxy: https://mykeyboard.eu/catalogue/category/sa-blanks-gb_132/
No Asia Proxy.

Sets:
60's set
TKL set
40's set
Ergo set
Ortho set


Current Numbers / MOQs:
Alpha Kits:
Alphas WFK: 16 / 25
Alphas NN: 19 / 25
Deep Dish WFK: 12 / 25
Deep Dish NN: 16 / 25
Deep Dish Alpha WFK: 0 / 5
Deep Dish Alpha NN: 1 / 5

Modifier Kits:
Standard Mods:  15 / 25
65 Nav: 11 / 25
40's:  6 / 15
Ortho:  16 / 25
Split Shifts: 17 / 25
ErgoDox: 6 / 15

Bottom Row:
Spacebar 7u: 9 / 15
Spacebar 6.25u: 14 /15
Spacebar 3u: 1 /15
Split Space: 13 / 25
Hybrid Bottom Row:  1 / 15
Winkey Bottom Row: 11 / 25
Winkey-less Bottom Row: 10 / 15

Etc.:
F-Row / Nav (TKL):  8 / 25
Numpad: 5 / 15
ISO Enter: 2 / 15

Looking like this will happen.  Get your orders in!

If you don't see a kit, or want something weird, please ask. I won't change existing kits, but I can add new ones. (e.g., I added Ergodox and Numpad so far.)

Sweet, I don't think I've seen a blank SA board that wasn't random crapbag caps.

Can get a clean retro chunky board look with these.

Exactly.   ;D

And cheaper than most SA sets, if I'm not mistaken.

No one requested it in IC, so I didn't make the kits.

Yep, color preference during IC was white, black, gray, all tied, pink second, and lots of other stuff after that.

I just gotta make sure I'm not stretching myself too thin and understand the workload involved with a GB (or storefront).

Made my selection, I suspect there may be too many kits though... The idea of an all homing alpha kit is interesting, I did six homing keys like on Realforce HiPro boards with my /dev/tty blanks.

Really hoping this works out in the end though, I can never have too many high profile blank sets.

I was thinking of combining bottom row kits, to force folks to buy both.

But other than that (and deep dish alphas), where else do you see places to simplify?

An "all mods and spacebars" kit?

I felt like folks would be motivated by saving money on SA, which means buying exactly what you need.

You should be able to edit your responses. Typically, if I go back to a form it says I already filled it out, and there's a link to edit.

Well in past IC's for this exact idea there was always one big kit. I really don't know what would entice buyers but personally I would do a 'base kit' that supports everything 60%-TKL, maybe even 104-key, and then an ergodox kit, 40% kit, and white alphas kit.

I also don't know if it would decrease prices in any way but if those kits were sold in multiple colors at the same time maybe there would be more general interest - I would certainly buy at least two and maybe three depending on the price, if there were different colors.

I see; I'll at least add those as 'sets': 40's, 60's, TKL, Full, Ergo, Ortho.  I always thought those were annoying, since folks end up with a bunch of less useful keys...  I wasn't gonna offer alpha kits at all, since I thought folks had them already from the other SA blank GB, but the IC showed some interest, so I added them.

Sets wouldn't decrease prices, since I'm still gonna submit a big order for 'R1 SA NN x1,090; R2 SA NN x1,527', etc.  And then sort them myself...  x.x

Edit: I really just want to be flexible to folks with a budget; it likely wouldn't cost me any 'real' time here aside from packing / shipping their order.  But I see the case for too much analysis paralysis...

60's set
TKL set

Purchasing any set will just add to the MOQ's of the child sets, but we still need Alphas to make MOQ 50 for the the sets happen.  They also all have a small discount to them, and don't include Split Space or ISO.  They instead include the extra 1u blanks for all the other kits, like 65 nav, and FRow / TKL.  Might switch that around, but could be a little tricky, since I'm not doing 'whole' kits any more...

Also, adjusted the landing page on the shopify, so it's clearer about what's what.

Will get 40's set, Ortho set, and Ergo set, and update the form with these new options tomorrow.

Bump for adding:

60's set

TKL set


Which are kits with 'all the options you need', Alphas, Std Mods, Split Shift, Split Space, WK & WKL, 6.25 & 7u spacebars.  They are cheaper than ordering all kits together.

They are missing the ISO Enter and Numpad.

Hope that simplifies the choice for some folks...

Also noticed the 40's kit was missing an R3 1u, which makes some minivan layouts impossible, so I'll add that the kits [free].

If this GB goes well, I'll offer white split space later.

The Moq is actually based on number of keys, so only adding white split space would be a Moq of 50 or so...

Black split space shares a lot of keys with standard Mods and split shift, so the price and Moq can be lower...

I have a question about the kits vs individual kits. For the 40% individual kits there are colored keys (not black or white) that are included whereas the 40% kit I only see black and white keys in the renders. Is that correct?

You mean the ones with 'R1'?  No, I was just trying to show the rows with colors so you wouldn't get confused about whats included... 

Only black / white keys are what you will get.  I'll update the older images throughout the day with the new 'decals' that the sets have.

IC showed equal interest between white, gray, and black.  R2 will likely be both wfk, and gd, making it Oblivion Hagoromo.

Pink was second.

I'm sure I could get more a few people, but I need 25-per-kit more people. ;)

I'm keeping an eye on things; I'm willing to buy some myself for future sales.

DM me if you want to help more. :)

Are most of the kits for this being made or are still needing more kits sold?

I'll go ahead and say everything will be made.

The only weird thing will be the hybrid kit, which no one really seemed care about, so I'll cut it or just order 5.

Interest does seem a bit low; maybe I just need to do something like Mondrian, which is just blanks anyway.... Or add some accent colors, like Modern Dolch.

Or no one really cares about SA Blanks?

Possibly.

Which is why I'm likely hedging a small bet on extras being popular. ;P

We are close enough to MOQ. Will post some fresh numbers on a bit. 20/25 Black Alphas.

I'm working with mykeyboard.eu for eu proxying, which will probably extend the deadline. But the amount of sets is... Large. So I'm not sure if they want to list every. single. one. Or just sets, or use the form. Etc.

I'm working with mykeyboard.eu on being the eu proxy.  We will list the sets on their storefront, kits are available in the form. 

This is all a bit last minute, sorry, but I will extend the deadline as a result.

Generally, we are now looking ok for alphas, but the modifier kits probably need some help.  40's kit, and ergodox kit are in need of some love. 

Other kits (like frow) aren't in that much trouble since they share keys with Alphas.

Current Numbers / MOQs:
Alpha Kits:
Alphas WFK: 16 / 25
Alphas NN: 19 / 25
Deep Dish WFK: 12 / 25
Deep Dish NN: 16 / 25
Deep Dish Alpha WFK: 0 / 5
Deep Dish Alpha NN: 1 / 5

Modifier Kits:
Standard Mods:  15 / 25
65 Nav: 11 / 25
40's:  6 / 15
Ortho:  16 / 25
Split Shifts: 17 / 25
ErgoDox: 6 / 15

Bottom Row:
Spacebar 7u: 9 / 15
Spacebar 6.25u: 14 /15
Spacebar 3u: 1 /15
Split Space: 13 / 25
Hybrid Bottom Row:  1 / 15
Winkey Bottom Row: 11 / 25
Winkey-less Bottom Row: 10 / 15

Etc.:
F-Row / Nav (TKL):  8 / 25
Numpad: 5 / 15
ISO Enter: 2 / 15

Yea, I'll post another update when everything is listed and ready to go, as well as emails / PM's to those affected.

I'm getting them prices incl VAT, images, descriptions, etc.

I thought they could just send paypal invoices, or drop them in the post; but I was wrong.   :blank:

Still waiting on mykeyboard.eu to list everything.

MOQ IS HIT, by the way. :). All kits will go through.

If there is a TON (like double the kits sold) more interest, I can drop prices. But that seems a bit unlikely.

'20% VAT Included' will do that (increase the prices 20%).  I set these prices, and the margins are actually slightly less (shipping supplies come out of these margins).

You have the option of keeping your order through me, paying VAT when it hits your doorstep, and paying $15 shipping or so.

Edit, looking a little more. Edit again: Ah, I see what happened.  I'll see if I can fix the prices.

MyKeyboard.eu pricing is updated to more reasonable numbers.

Note: Sets are a bit cheaper than kits.

The reason it's more expensive than just VAT is they need to cover the more expensive bulk shipping to EU, and shipping supplies.  (I was planning on 'figuring this out later' for US orders, whereas they already figured it out.)

Yes. 

Just send me a DM with your order number and how you ordered (form / Shopify), and I'll make sure to update your order.

Keep in mind, I ordered a bunch of extras, so (provided they aren't insanely popular) you will have a month or two to also pick up any other things.

I'll say that for me, you can send me a DM and I'll update your order or somehow find a way to take your money (or refund you if absolutely necessary).  I have enough extras to handle reasonable requests.

I don't know how mk.eu handles this, but I do know they ordered extras too.

I'll say that for me, you can send me a DM and I'll update your order or somehow find a way to take your money (or refund you if absolutely necessary).  I have enough extras to handle reasonable requests.

I don't know how mk.eu handles this, but I do know they ordered extras too.

Cool! thanks, will ask mykeeb.eu when they are done shipping out the initial orders. or i will bug you again later :)

From my own tests, the weight of a single row type of SA cap can vary quite a bit, ±15%. You'll have a probability curve on the accuracy if you rely on this.

/shrug, I will see what the most effective way is.

For smaller kits, probably just need to count...

Small update: I've got '25%' of the caps sorted (measuring by quantity). 

Mostly the smaller kits (wk mods, wkl mods, numpad, etc.) are sorted as I didn't realize that my bags were super tiny and can't hold all the alphas...  I ordered 300 more bags, and boy, are they taking their time to ship to get here.    Alphas and dox are like 60% of all the caps I ordered, so I'm hungry to start sorting them...

Small update: about 80% done sorting the caps.  I have probably two more days to get through the remainder of caps, then I'll be labeling / packing orders. 

I'm estimating shipping domestic orders on Monday April 29; shipping invoices for int'l will go trickle out after.

Now to verify I sorted correctly (re weighing all of them) and label them.  And to organize my orders into packing lists...

Fun fact: Black caps weigh less than white caps.

White pigment is typically titanium dioxide. Black pigment is typically carbon.  By volume, TiO2 is almost twice as heavy as C.  Although the volume of the two pigments is probably not the same, so...

Update:

Dropped off most Shopify orders today.  There was a weird issue 4 packages: 2 labels didn't want to print, 1 is an unusual int'l, and 1 needs a bigger box.
I'll work on those, and start packing PayPal orders tonight, too.  Expect shipping invoices within a day or two.

Packaging took a little longer than I expected, due to building boxes and taping them, etc.  So, I'm learning how to estimate time better.   ;)

I'll work with you over email; thanks!

Edit: Made a mistake where I was invoicing orders in EU, but they didn't order through me (I just had their info before the EU proxy was up).  Some folks got invoices, but I cancelled them.  Let me know if I made two mistakes (invoicing you, cancelling it, but you actually did order through me.)

Yea, I didn't double check the invoices I sent before sending the shipping invoices.

...........In other news, I'll have more extras than I anticipated.   :p


Edit: Int'l shipping invoices are all out.  When you pay, I'll ship.  Let me know if I missed you, or accidentally sent you one.

Working on sorting / counting extras now.  (And hoping there are no 'missing-key's in current orders)
