Apparently there is an issue with the checkout system: https://drop.com/buy/godspeed-custom-sa-keycap-set/talk/2572843

Even then, $80 for midifiers if there is the $37 extra error. SP prices sure keep going up.

I do agree that SA prices are going up. I paid $190 with tax/shipping for a TKL SA Yuri. I am happy this time around, I spent twice as much, but I am getting three sets out of it. Hopefully nothing grabs my interest for the next year. Except I'm already drooling over SA Sail. I'm hopeless lol.

A TKL set would be $110 without shipping in this drop (compared with $190 for SA Yuri). That seems pretty good to me. Or Genespeed or Mitospeed are also much less than $190. omg sooo expensive

Just comparing to older prices. You could get SA Pulse TKL mods for $20 less. SA has been known to have good prices, but they've lately bumping up to GMK kit prices with less compatibility options.

well yes, prices go up over years. Inflation is a thing. In other news, water is wet.

Inflation hasn't been 33% over the time from Pulse to Godspeed.

Ingredients cost more. Wages go up. The US imposes stupid tariffs. All kinds of shit means prices go up. I thought this would be common sense...

These are made in the USA at Signature Plastics? If I got a 33% raise over the past few years, that must be nice for the employees at SP. I know you're going to keep grasping at straws here, but plenty of things don't go up 33%. Just sucks we end up paying more and waiting longer lead times. SP is likely just charging more because the demand is going up, production capacity doesn't change. We've steadily been paying more and waiting longer for SA keycap sets from SP.

Inflation is a thing, but the cost of SP caps is going up way faster than inflation. Some of these sets are 25-40% more expensive than they were in 2015/2016.....
