May - Week 4 Update

Hey kbdists,

As you know, we're running a 2 man operation only. I'm not feeling so well, so Wendy will be handling all customer service and logistics and fulfillment this week.

If you have a message for me, I'll try to get back to it as soon as I feel better. I'll definitely try my best to answer as many as possible.

Hopefully we can have all the SA sets shipped by Friday. The SA sets have been over 50% shipped by 5/23.

My goal is to get better before my flight. I hate being sick on a flight, so I definitely will try to rest before then.

As for the MEET, we will send out the RSVPs either Wednesday or Thursday of this week, so make sure to sign up!

May - Week 3 Update

SA HyperFuse & SA Penumbra has been 35% completed by 5/19. We are expected to complete the shipping by this week! 

SA MAXKEY's Originative set is completed (white on black), but the white on blue still needs some time (about the end of the month) to be completed. We'll let you know more once we get the tracking.

I'll be out of the office from 5/28 - 6/02 for an event in Taiwan. If you do plan to attend Computex, let us know! Wendy will still be in the office. Our goal is to have the SA sets completed by then at the very least.

As for group buys, Miami will not make it, but we are already planning to put the order in for Miami Night's this week. Do put in the order if you haven't yet ;)

I'll also be sending out the RSVP for the Originative LA ROOFTOP MEET this upcoming week! Do remember to sign up :)

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms including mine who has generously supported me and what I wanted to do from the very first day.

April - Week 4 Update

Hey kbdists,

We received the Honeywell today. There's a couple people who paid for First Class shipping. Since all items now have a box, we sent you the remaining invoice to upgrade to Priority shipping. The Priority shipping will be a must.

Honeywell, Hyperfuse Accent, CMYK and HF CMY are all in.

As for Keyboard & Co., GMK's supplier is still trying to find the perfect silver color to match our set. It's a little hard since the color is a kind of shiny color. We'll let you guys know as soon as we hear more updates.

SA HyperFuse and Penumbra are about to ship to us, but it may take awhile to have these shipped to you guys. The reason is we are currently working on Honeywell.
 

  • finish up SABER shipping (90% completed)
  • proceed to Honeywell, HyperFuse Accent, and CMYK (3% completed; yes, we shipped a few)

As for people who are interested in purchasing the following items:

  • SA HyperFuse - SA Penumbra
  • Honeywell
  • Magenta Accent
  • RGBYO Accent
  • Miami Dolch Accent
  • HyperFuse Accent

We will be hosting a sale soon on these. We will add a countdown timer on the site.

I just wanted to make an update before we end our week.

Penumbra

  • We just found out that the Penumbra ISO Enter will be delayed a week. 
  • We will start shipping the orders with Penumbra ISO Enter by 4/17

We apologize for this delay!

Honeywell

  • This is one of the most beautiful GMK sets of the year.
  • I want to make everything perfect, and this will be delayed another week as well to 5/12. The reason for the delay was the 1.5u R2 Delete key. We want to make everything right by our customers.
  • I am already planning a Honeywell Phase 2.

Sky Dolch

  • This is our highest priority right now. Many people will be receiving shipping notifications. We are currently twenty percent done with this, and we hope to crank these all out by 4/12.
  • If you are one of the 50 orders that had a spacebar kit and got delayed, we have worked with GMK to push these up. They will be shipping to us at the end of April. We will ship these all out before Honeywell arrives to us.

Thanks for looking out for our updates! :)

 

April - Week 1 Update

Hello kbdists,

We had a customer who worked at Amazon. We were lucky enough for him to get in contact with us. He actually helped us push the Amazon package forth, and we were able to receive them. We have been working weekends to push these out to you guys in the past few days. 

As for the Sky Dolch, we are one fifth done with the shipping. We still need to get a lot completed, and we are working on shipping everything out as soon as we can.

Honeywell

  • These will arrive in approximately first week of May 
  • CMYK, CMYW, and the HyperFuse Accent Kit will be shipped with Honeywell

SA Penumbra & HyperFuse

  • These will arrive approximately in the third week of May

Lustro & Weaven

  • I just received them today
  • We will be working on preparing weights and invoice for shipments

We have been working our butts off for the past few days (except Sunday for wedding venue searching; some of you might know that I got engaged with my best friend, work partner, and my long time girlfriend) to get everything shipped. Our office is insanely packed now because all of the packages. We received over 18 packages with 6 pallets this month. We will do our best to get these in your hands.

We will be taking a break this Friday and Saturday as it is our Birthday (our birthdays are literally one day apart)! We intend to have a nice and relaxing day. I'm taking her to a nice dinner :)

We will start working on all shipments again on Sunday. Thank you for everyone's continuous patience.

P.S. THANK YOU AMAZON GUY, WE OWE YOU ONE!
