You two are lucky. I'll wrap your precious stickers in protective keyboards! I mean, the stickers are new and oh so shiny. The boards are just some old stuff…

Here's some stuff I got, with mini reviews.

1.jpg


The mugs are really great. The print is very clear and sharp and you can't feel it by moving a finger over it. Made in England here with 3DDD (3D dye sublimation). You could label ceramic, glass or metal keys with this. Machine washable. Recommended.

2.jpg


3.jpg


Moving on to the textiles. The t-shirt was made in Sweden, forgot to check the packaging of the throw pillow for the source. Both are not so good.

Check out the print on the t-shirt (thin fabric) below. It's not very good, especially at the top and bottom left corners of the print around the D, and while the shirt can be cold washed in a washing machine, I doubt the print will remain fashionable for long. It's pad-printed paint on fabric. You know how that goes.

4.jpg


The cushion had a screen color of #3f3f3f (dark gray), but came out lighter and brownish. The RGB to CYMK (or whatever they're using) conversion isn't very good. There's even some greenish anti-aliasing on the right side of the D, although you have to look close. Possibly a production method more suited for full-colour photos/pictures. Got it with an insert (which is optional). While the paint is deeper, more sublimated than the t-shirt, both the cover and the (synthetic) insert are not machine washable, only dry-clean. I have better things to do in my life than going to the dry-cleaners with my throw pillow. Such as staring blankly at the spy.

Shame about the shirt and pillow. I almost got a shirt but decided against it at the last minute. I got my mug a couple of days ago, the "DT" one. I'm pretty happy with it, but I wish I'd gotten the full "Deskthority" one now.

I would gladly beta test other services. We could set up a couple more stores (one on cafepress for example) and compare the quality.

I thought it could be a nice mug design to do use some popular keyboards as a grid. Unfortunately converting this shot of Muiriums M0110 took me already two hours, so I thought I should check if someones even interested in such a design. Maybe a Model F, a Model M, a 60%, a Happy Hacking Pro , a TKL etc.

They would make excellent desktop wallpapers. Third one's my pick, it's got a nice and minimal look to it.

Something like this?

As I said, I would add some more keyboards, if there is interest.

I like this last one. I would need a hi-def version (via PM) and I'll put it online. Try not to use lines that are too thin, they might not come out right.

please note that graphics need to be released under a very permissive creative common license.

As I said, I would like to add some more keyboards, but I'll send you this file and if I finished the new version you could swap it. Creative commons isn't a problem, since I'm done this for this forum.

Just wanted to thank webwit for volunteering his mistress as the model. Springs aren't the only thing buckling if this shirt walked by

EDIT: Or this little jewel
