ALLCAPS Mid-Sept 2022 Updates! KBM Fairy, BBN Tactiles & Deskmat Sale!

WOWSERS IT'S BEEN A WHILE. Not intentionally of course, I'm just bad at this. Lots of things have happened since we last spoke - although I'm aware it's just me typing, but I am talking to myself as write this, but wouldn't it be wild if we WERE talking right now. Imagine. What would we talk about? This is so cool. Am I god? No! You are? C R A Z Y.

Anyways... it would be remiss of me to not update you on what been happening around the ALLCAPS Shop.

Goodnight sweet Jam
For those of you who don't know our 1st (and not necessarily best) employee Jamboards has finished up with us this month. All jokes aside, we're a tiny little family here at ALLCAPS. We will truly miss Jam and his contribution to ALLCAPS is really beyond words. He has packed probably most of y'alls orders, you are likely in our discord which he designed and moderated for many, many months. We wish him all the best while he is in the USA pursuing the big time as a basketball legend / full time baller. 

The winds of change - welcome Scott!
aka Keymystery on the Discord, no doubt you have seen Scott active on the server. Now, you'll see him active in the shop in human form! Please join me in welcoming Key to the team - he's got big shoes to fill! (literally, Jam's a giant).

KBM Fairy
This is the set I've been looking forward to and obsessed with since we saw the IC pop off. A soft pastel gradient set WITH 40s compatibility? Take my left arm and GIMME GIMME. Wintea's phenomenal set is an absolute monster, totally cute and will fit basically any board due to that healthy compatibility from Keebee.

BONUS: 1st day participants in the Group Buy will get a free Enamel Pin with their orders so jump on quick! Otherwise, the pin will be $16.

DESKMAT SALE!
See below, jeez we have a lot of deskmats! Save me.

BBN Tactiles
Local streamer, legend and keyboard enthusiast we all know and love - Nim has designed another banger of a switch. This time following a similar theme as his linear switches, but with a burgundy stem the BBN Tactiles are LIVE, IN STOCK NOW! They will begin shipping this weekend or can be picked up in store at our Sunshine location.

Opening Hours
Now staffing has settled somewhat with Key on the team, we are making some changes to our opening hours. From this week (17th Sept) we will be EXTENDING the opening hours for Saturday - so y'all can make it without having to rush! New hours below:

  • Tuesday - 10am-1pm
  • Thursday - 10am-1pm
  • Saturday - 10am-2pm

We're extending Saturday to see how well it works, so please pop by if you've been meaning to!

ALLCAPS TINYMATS

Guess what? TinyMats have shipped to our forwarder already! Hot damn that's quick! Packaging has been completed also so we are just awaiting delivery to get these out to pre-order customers!

Pre-order is still live, so you can still scoop up your TinyMat at a sweet discount using code TINYMATS25 at checkout. Only available online but you can come check them out in store at our Sunshine location.

We have come to realise that we have SO MANY MATS! So, now is the perfect time to either stock up or get your next showpiece for your setup! We have literally hundreds to choose from! All at 25% cause JC is a terrible manager of stock.

CURRENT GROUP BUYS & PRE-ORDERS

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

KBM Fairy (Live through October 16th)

Inspired by the whimsical and magical creatures hidden behind the lush of the forest, waiting to be found. But be careful and try not to fall for their charm, as they can keep you trapped for eternity…

Wintea's mega cute, super aesthetic set is live at ALLCAPS! Don't miss out on this one. Great pricing, great, great kitting (including 40s!) with super cute artisans and deskmats to round out the set. Not to be missed, really, don't sleep. 

SpacePaws Deskmat (live through 10th Oct)

SwitchLab is back with another great mat for your setup, but this time it's a new spin on SwitchLab's classic design Pawpops. Sporting four colourways, this cutie is guaranteed to have a match for your setup! 

Miko aka Cpt. SpacePaws is back and in space! Catch Miko streaming onboard her spaceship orbiting around the moon.

Lube Cleaner for Switches
We have a fresh proto of a new switch cleaner that we are road testing at the moment. This includes what part ratio is required with water, how much to use, how little to use and what gloves to wear are all being tested as we speak by the team! What quantities and sizes that will be available is still unknown. ETA is November.


That's it for now. Please buy some deskmats.
