Received a set of unpainted keycaps today (DHL, no customs paperwork or fees).
I’m happy to hear it.
The current status as of today:
We have come to an agreement with the factory about shipping QWERTY, Black, and White keycap sets.
Most QWERTY, Black, and White keycap sets have been shipped or are expect to be shipped in the next 48 hours.
The factory sent us pictures of the keycaps boxed up, labeled and ready to go
We’ll send tracking numbers to everyone to whom we shipped keycaps, probably some time next week.
We don’t actually know what the customs declarations on the keycaps say, but are eagerly awaiting reports. We suspect the factory may have under-declared their value without discussing it with us.
We won’t have an update on Colemak, Dvorak, and Linear-A keycaps until after Chinese New Year. Because our factory’s former salesperson doctored the ordered, they have not yet been manufactured. It’s going to be a while.
When can I order?
Do you have a picture of them on a board?
There’s an old pic of them on Twitter:
Unpainted keycaps just arrived
Yay! What country are you in?
I am in Chile so I thought I would have to wait more than other people
Will blank black and whites go on the store once the backers have been fulfilled?
As it happens, China Post doesn’t have an ‘ePacket’ shipping deal with Chile. So you were one of the lucky folks who got upgraded to DHL
Once we get the extra sets into our warehouse in HK, yes
Blank keycaps install -- DON'T do what I did
I’ll definitely buy a set of white ones as soon as they are available. Hope soon!
Keycaps arrived to Hungary too. And damn, are they beautiful!
Was tracking ever sent out? I’ve moved since the backerkit was sent out and I’m fairly certain they’re shipped to the wrong address.
@bagels - Colemak, Dvorak, and Linear A sets haven’t been made yet. Before we send them out, we’ll send you email asking you to update your address.
Will you announce availability here? Together with the Chrysalis enhancements, this will make my M01 PERFECT.
What are thoughts on the future with regards to keycaps? I’d love to be able to order a Colemak set but I ordered my keybaord way after alternate keycaps were available. After the manufacturing nightmare I can imagine the goal would be to wrap up existing orders, but I’m also thinking that adding a few extra keycap sets is pretty straightforward if the production is still pending.
That, or if somebody ordered a Colemak set but isn’t going to use them, reach out after delivery
we ordered a bunch of extra sets to go along with the ones that people pre-ordered. Once we have the inventory in stock, it will be available on shop.keyboard.io
Berlin, Germany got unpainted Keycaps yesterday!
Got mine today! UK here.
Got my white keycaps like a week ago. Haven’t gotten them installed yet.
