Why are your cases so expensive?
My Acrylic and other material are outsourced. I do not produce them on my own at this moment in time but have plans to do so in the very near future. At the current level of demand, case orders are made one at a time which translates to higher prices. My material ships from CA to the East coast. Doing it this way is expensive, I know. As the demand for my work grows, I'll have more opportunity to order in "bulk". If I could sell cheaper, know that I would - It's just a matter of time folks - Currently aiming to have my machines churning out boards by Q1 2022.
As my very small business grows I'll get closer and closer to having the tools I need to produce my designs on my own.
By purchasing my products you are investing in the growth, vision, designs, trust, and the future of LimboKeys.
What are your lead times?
Due to the need of said outsourcing, I require 4-6 weeks but aim for 3-4 weeks. It'll all depend on the material and parts you're lookin' for.
Where are you located?
Currently, I am just north of Boston, MA. I am however moving back out to the Southwest in about a month. This means orders will be closed from later October to late November when I finally have my workshop up and running. I will open a queue for folks who are interested in commissioning a case/build during this hiatus.
Do you have a workshop/warehouse/employees?
Not at this time. LK is currently based in my living room, literally. I am a one man show and manage every aspect of LimboKeys on my own.
How many Keyboards have you built?
I've lost count at this point but I can confidently say I've built well over 100 Mechanical Keyboards.
How many Switches have you modded?
How do you make money?
I build Custom Mechanical Keyboards - a lot of them. From mid to high-end, I can tackle just about everything. I also offer Repair, Customization, and Custom Stacked Material PCB Case Design Services.
I started out in the niche as a source for Pre-Built Mechanical Keyboards, mostly Through-Hole. This inspired me to then provide Custom Mechanical Keyboard Build Services - which meant aggregating all necessary & agreed upon parts and building the entire Keyboard with all relevant modifications. I provided and continue to provide my labor, expertise, and attention to detail in this area.
Spring of '21 is when I really started pushing my efforts toward design work. Among my own designs, I've done a created a handful of Commissioned stacked material case designs from the ground up. I love designing one-off cases and creating Designer Mechanical Keyboards.
Who takes your photographs and what kind of camera do you use?
For the most part, I do. At the moment I use a Samsung S10+ Again, this is a lean operation. That said, I've had the opportunity and great pleasure to promote my work with some professional photographers and have collaborated with a few Custom Mechanical Keyboard & PC Accessories companies.
What makes you different and why should I purchase your boards over other stacked material case designs out there?
My boards offer something very different. My priorities are Originality, Style, and Quality. The goal I have in my designs is to create art pieces - To create cases that interact with the element of light in a more deliberate way than all other Custom Mechanical Keyboard Cases on the market. The Custom Mechanical Keyboards I build are immaculate. I use the right tools for the right job and my craft is only getting more and more refined.
My work is Premium. I guarantee it.
LimboKeys designs are meticulously thought out and my builds receive the utmost attention to detail. By purchasing any one of my works, you are not only getting a Keyboard/Case/Kit - you are actively supporting the growth, learning, and refinement of LimboKeys designs and my overall vision. There's so much on the horizon for LimboKeys. I'd love nothing more than to talk your ears off about these plans but it's just better that I show you.
Please reach out with any questions, concerns, or interests you might have and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
Thank You sincerely for your interest and for being a part of this adventure.
