pfffft, 30 each from an unknown company? thanks but ill stick with jelly key
Seems like this is something you'll say to Jelly Key if they just started out now. Hammer isn't really unknown, he's done notable artisans of his own. I remember when Jelly Key started out with their artisan, they were pretty much unknown to many.
When buying art of any sort, you want to buy when the artist is unknown; when they breakthrough it is time to look smug, and either cash out or admire your preciousssssss.... Hammer did a few important caps anyways.
this isnt art though. theres no sculpt, and its a generic shape. beyond that the glittery effect used doesnt even compare to makers like Idea23 who are also relatively new to the scene, yet still manage to charge much less for a cap without it being a group buy. Hell even prime caps who is more notable only charges 22 a cap....
nope, jelly key's quality has always been a cut above the rest. these are just meh. as i said in my other response, even newer makers like Idea23 are putting out much better looking caps in this style for a much lower price....
You're talking like Hammer can't make quality and other makers hasn't charged 30+ before even on 'generic' looking keycaps. There's multitude of factors in any artist/artisan works, so prices will always vary regardless of how simple an artisan keycap will look.
If another maker put out a generic cap for over 30 i would call them out on it too. I have in the past, and would do it again in the future. Theres no reason to charge that much for a cap you didnt have to sculpt unless its using some really exotic matierials or strenuous casting technique. These definitely do not fall into either of yhose exceptions
Okay, make it yourself in the same quality or better and charge them cheaper because at the moment you're contradicting yourself.
Not at all. My point is theres no reason to buy these when makers like primecap and idea23 already make them better and cheaper, or if i really wanted to go for the super popular name brand i would buy jelly key at the same price but retail instead pf a gb. You seem to be ignoring that in an attempt to prove to me that 30 a cap on a group buy for oem profile single color with some glitter dumped in it is worth my investment
Jessus, you're overly ignorant. Well aware of what you're saying and I'm not trying to prove the investment or anything to you from the start either. It just goes to show you don't understand these various things yet. I'll let you figure it, and continue how you want to benchmark your prices.
Lol ignorant of what exactly? You seem mad that you cant come up with a single reason why someone should pay that much for one of these caps without it being easily refuted. Its ok though, youre a full grown idiot whose allowed to spend their money how they want. I however will stick with the less expensive but well proven alternatives
Like the idea 23 drop thats half the price of this and using real gold flakes.
Lol, you still don't get it and just an oblivious idiot now. There isn't anything to be mad about with you. As said, I'm not trying to justify the price to you. You originally posted to talk dirt like no one had ever offered a simple 30 dollar cap before, and you'd call out on them, even JK if they just made an appearance now.
Yes, 30 isn't cheap; there's various reason that a maker sets it at 30, lower or higher, there's multitude of factors done in the background to reflect in the final results. But you make it out like this was just quickly grabbed from a local store then ran through a quick paint job, and tried compared it to others.
I'm not here to mince words with you. Whether you justify the price or not is down to you, just don't go slamming makers about their price, unless you're there understanding their thoughts and what's been done along with the other makers you're comparing to.
If you fancy idea23's 'real' gold flakes and cheaper bargain, by all means, support his drop.
We don't need to convince you.
You need to convince the hundreds of Hammer buyers. ;)
