Commission Information

Quick Info

  • Cases have a floating PCB design, which means soldered builds are recommended. Hotswap PCBs will work with the case, but might have issues if the switch holes in the PCB become stretched if you constantly change switches. If you press your keys hard, it also might cause the switch to pop out of the hot swap socket.
  • Lead time is 4-8 weeks, starting the day the invoice is paid 
  • There are NO refunds for custom commissions due to the customization of orders
  • I try to open for commissions every month or so, depending on the current backlog and my personal life.

Case

The case is made up from 7 acrylic layers (with acrylic layers used for the stand) stacked on top of each other using a combination of screws and standoffs. The plate is sandwiched in between the layers.

The current design features a 1-step design from the top most layer to the next. The 2nd layer down is known as the flare layer. This allows you to personalize your keyboard with an accent color!

If you’d like a case style I do not offer, send an email to smkeyboards@gmail.com to discuss. A non-refundable design fee of $25 would be charged separately and must be paid prior to design work being started.
