Kicking Off With The Classic White-on-Black

search
While some may say White-on-Black is boring, we call it classic. Starting with White-on-Black lets us really focus on the quality of the keycap and its design, before adding dazzling colors to really make your keyboard pop. Shortly after the release of White-on-Black and its inverse, Black-on-White, we'll have Genesis and a few other colorful releases. Truly Hidden Sprue Marks When plastic products are made with injection molding machines, there’s a tube that the molten plastic needs to go through in order to fill the keycap mold. Once cooled, the plastic product is broken from the runners and there are tiny marks left over on the keycap, these are called sprue marks. Many keycaps have these marks and they’re cleverly hidden on the backside of the keycap where you can’t see it. Despite being out of line of sight, they’re still there. We’ve carefully planned our molds so that these unsightly marks are all located on the underside of the keycap so you won't notice them unless you're looking for them.

Mac Compatibility One of the biggest comments we hear from potential mechanical keyboard buyers is “these keycaps don’t work on a Mac”. Understandably, many Mac users like their CMD keys to say “CMD,” or their Option keys to say Option (instead of Meta, or Super, etc.) With our keycap releases, we’ll be offering a Mac Kit that provides a variety of different Mac system keys in different row/sizes to accommodate many different layouts. The Mac Kit will be available with most of the sets that we release.

The Profile Name There has been a lot of discussion about the name, with significant feedback from the community opposing the MT2 name. We've gone back to the drawing board and decided to rename the profile to "DCX (Drop Cylindrical X)". If you'd like to read more about the reasons behind the name change, see this post here.

What's Next? We're going to start accepting preorders for DCX keycaps on April 26th. Pricing for standard in-stock base kits will be $99, with a preorder price of $79 for the first production run. As with all of our preorders and Studio products, preorders are fully cancellable with no fees, and the product is eligible for no-hassle returns within 30 days of shipping. Samples will be shipped to popular reviewers, as well as select Drop Keyboard Club members later in May. (edit: Mistake in the poll. Will be updated and added back.)

Can we stop using this font for keycaps yet?

Great! Now let's get that proper spherical MT2, i.e. lower profile MT3!
BardielMatt3o's working on a new profile that does more or less exactly that. It's tentatively named "SP3".

Thanks for update. Any plans for "ortho" kit, or "base" is going to cover it ?

so Mac compatibility w/ "CMD" or "Option" is good, but is there a licensing issue or something with using the actual symbol? MT3 Extended 2048 had these, but there is a distinct lack of WoB sets that have that symbol for the modifier instead of just CMD, Meta, Super, etc.

PBT Fans has a group buy starting may 10th for a set called “Neon”. I don’t think it’s perfect WoB, but it’s pretty close and has the command symbols.

McTedThis looks perfect! Thanks for the recommendation :) Will be grabbing these instead of the DCX, especially after hearing about the Matt3o situation

Cool, but what actually is the profile like, side view anywhere?

HarveyE158Looks like this it's akin to a 'Cherry' or OEM ABS doubleshot.

I see the pre-order is 26 April, is there an estimated ship date yet for these?
