ALLCAPS Mid-July 2022 Updates! Tactiles and Keycap Sets a plenty

ALLCAPS Mid-July 2022 Updates! Tactiles and Keycap Sets a plenty

Apart from my usual sadness, this month I’m announcing two new tactiles for all my tactile homies out there in keyboard land. I know, it’s been a while so we figured it was time to bolster the tactile lineup with some interesting switches for y’all. So yeah, love it or hate it now you have two to choose from. Pre-order will open some point this week, what a vibe indeed.

Additionally, PRINCE'S BLUSH SWITCHES ARRIVE THIS WEEK. This is not a drill. Manufactured by Aflion, specs designed and heavily proto'd by our own staffer Lewi aka the ^Prince. These beautiful pink on pink on pink long pole linears will be going out this week. Pre-order is still available here, should you not want to miss out.

TinyMats are still a thing, we're making some hoodies and there's a lot of switches about the place. Sure is nice out here, stay a while and enjoy the view.

Group Buys
Jeepers there are just so damn many Group Buys cause Kent is an a-grade grinder and has got us on board with many, many group buys in the coming months. Below is a list of just a few.

Opening Hours
Sorry fam, we were short staffed last week so we were closed all week. Not to worry, regular scheduled hours commence from Tuesday morning, 19th July. Apologies if you have missed us!

If you didn't know ALLCAPS has a bone-a-fied store & warehousing location in Sunshine, Melbourne open a couple of days during the week and Saturdays. You can come try our your next favourite switch or just click and collect online orders should you want to avoid shipping (you tightass). Exact hours and times are posted in our discord and IG stories. 


After round one protos and community feedback we have re-proto'd our mats! Specifically, we have re-prototyped the 60/65% model to be a TOOOUUUCCH wider for deeper board compatibility. We also think that the TKL model is spot on (in terms of sizing). They have been shipped and we expect them to be with us next week. If we are happy with their quality we will open the Pre-Order shortly thereafter, probably by our goal date of the end of July. That was a bit dramatic, they're just TinyMats.

Colours have been sorted out! The first run will have THREE insanely generic colourways: Black (Got any blacker?), Grey (Boring Grey) and Pink (Pink Bits). Black and grey will have matching coloured stitching, Pink will feature white stitching on the edges.

As we have said before, our plan has always been to run TinyMats in-stock. This is still totally the case, but if you don't want to miss out we will open Pre-Order some time around Late July. Also, reminder that if you register your interest you will be emailed a discount code for 20% OFF YOUR TINY MAT ORDER when we open Pre-Orders. 

Our IC form is here:



Recently, some people (aka only one) have asked us "yo, ALLCAPS y no tactilez" so we said "mum stop yelling at me, I’m a grown ass man" and went out and GO TWO. OMG CALL THE COPS! TWO TACTILES!

But seriously, two new tactiles are coming to ALLCAPS in the coming weeks, so brace yourselves. Manu is underway or will start shortly for both and to soothe your FOMO we will shortly open up pre-order on these lovely switches.

BBN Tactile! Pre-Order opens 20/7!

Due to begin manufacturing any day now we expect these bad boys to arrive around the end of August. Yep, AUGUST. These are Tecsee tactiles in a similar vein as the highly successful and community beloved BBN Linear. Typing test below, they’re stock. Lubed test soon.

KNC Keys Green Jacket Tactile - ETA 1st Week of August-ishhhhhh

WHHHHAT!? Another HIGHLY anticipated in stock drop? You better believe it bae. Just for you, and no I don’t tell all the other keyboard baes that - you’re special. Anyways, our mates at KNC Keys have dropped the Green Jacket Tactile and we’re on board, as usual. Pre-Order to opens 20th July as well and we anticipate an August delivery.

Detailed updates

A number of GBs have wrapped up recently and extras are available in limited quantities! HEEEEEAPS of deskmats are in, please buy them, we have too many.



Things that you could possibly buy later that will ship even later. Limited run, one

Lonely Nights Deskmats (Live through 23rd July)

An absolute banger of a set of mats from your boy Icey_Keebs. Available in three colourways for a limited time only! Inspired by the nights when we are alone and cannot sleep also displaying the lunar cycle and the girl representing all of us.

DCS WoB (Live through August 11th)

Yep, White on Black. Not much to say here. So well kitted even your Aunty Mavis would shout them out on facey. Get on board (literally, if possible) and cop the kits you need to build out mega compatibility for basically any board with no mismatched profiles. There's even a 10U big boy for those that crave more spacebar. Cause less would mean less spacebar.

DMK Third Space (Live July 20th, 2022)

Today we bring you this set of blue-based design "third space". The main color is blue with two different saturations, representing another space outside of work and life. It's also real, right all around us. It's a VR game-themed design. The birth of VR games makes us feel the immersive game experience, as if entering another world.

From the same design team that brought you DMK Midnight, Third Space is a phenomenally kitted and price set that will deliver mega quick. Live on July 20th through August 20th. 


Things we restocked, or re-upped again for your purchasing pleasure, or pain. Depends on what you like, really. Not many this month cause we've been slammed on GBs/we over ordered everything.

Yep, back in stock finally cause I am bad at restocks. Switch Pullers, Switch Openers and Stem Holders all back NOW!

There's some, buy some if you would like. Or not, up to you.

Switch Samplers
Still in stock.

Broken-in MX Blacks
SOON. Handed a box to Kent last week so keep a close eye on our discord for the next drop.

Reg MX Black
Also dropped in stock now. This latest batch we received are spicy man. At least the few we tested were impressively smooth, still MX Black-y in sound but with less scratch. Late '21 production so you know they're good. Limited stock.



Stone Lion Mats

One of our best selling GB mats of the year is now open for extras, with no price hike! All colourways available in limited supply!

Eclipse Mat

Another absolute banger from our mate SwitchLab has just finished shipping to GB participants. We will open up extras this week! Stay tuned to discord for the drop, it will likely be this Wednesday. Most colourways will be available!


ALLCAPS x Fataly Lube Stations
Built by a local legend Fatal, they will be in-stock and ready to party. Available in two sizes. We are reviewing the protos again, they will be available but we need more time to release them. ETA Early-July - thanks for your patience.

Heavyweight materials, drop shoulders and minimal branding. More soon. No IC, no GB, no pre-order, will drop on the store at some point this year. Customers will have the ability to cop these 

That's it for now, I'll return you back to our regular scheduled programming: JC crying into his coffee.


Later, gater
