ALLCAPS Mid-Late September 2021 Updates!
by Jon Cartledge on Sep 19, 2021
Batten down your hatches and set your neighbour’s house on fire: it’s another wild ALLCAPS monthly update.
Kinda missed the last one due to not really having anything of value to add. Also, HOLY SMOKES 2021 is nearly over.
Its a thing still, join if you’d like more up to the minute updates or you wanna burn me daily.
Still on the way! Should be back next week.

Phenomenal Deskmat created by Contrakeys channeling retro-TechTarget space vibes. Available in four colourways! Requested by the community and made available at ALLCAPS!

Update: Production of our mats has completed and the mats have been shipped to us! YEW! Downside, it’s sea freight the slowest of all freights. Tracking well but likely the last week of the month/early next.
Extras will be made available once the GB orders are shipped.
Wildlife Series Switches
Rebult Keyboards latest switches are absolutely LIGHTS OUT. They are long pole, Zykos and Cherry Pie homages wrapped in a little local Malay flair. The Penyu (Turtle) Linear and Harimau (Tiger) Tactile sound insane stock, even better lubed and will be available in both variants through ALLCAPS for AU & NZ customers. Group buy is open now at ALLCAPS, don’t miss out!

UPCOMING STUFF & THINGS
Partnering with our mates at Pantheon Keys, we will be bringing in these lovely openers this year. Magnetic bottom and top cases align with prongs for both Kailh and MX style switches these are soooo nice. Proto is on the way to us for preview, then we will be offering these IN STOCK.
Somehow, ALLCAPS has expanded into Group Buys! We will continue to bring you a couple of super high quality, targeted and very deliberate buys every month. Mats. Switches and Keycaps have all been run so far. We will likely be running a board or two this year as well. Thank you SO DAMN MUCH for your support.
ThicThacThok x ALLCAPS Cables
Not only have we partnered with ThicThacThok, Australia’s number one streamer to bring you discounted ALLCAPS item. But your boy John has punched out some cables for us too. These will retail for $50 & $60 respectively, giving you a super high quality but home grown cable option. They will be available late September.
I start writing these things while watching YouTube and typically begin with the intention of writing not much, just the essentials. But as I get distracted with fire YT videos I ramble. Sorry about that, so until next time kids!
