I think the meetup was in Austin, if I'm not mistaken.

Seeing how Mu is not very active these days, I'd like to buy one or two (pebble, I guess) for him as well, in addition to the ones I get for myself.

Hey there, I will be putting the order in tonight by shipping the blank keycaps to the Dye Sub supplier. Here is a picture of the print on a DSA keycap that the supplier did ( https://imgur.com/a/roerE ) He noted that "the black is much darker and crisper than it appears in this potato pic". Also sphericals have more distortion (DSA), the cylindricals of buckling springs should show no distortion in the vertical plane. Pre-order is not an obligation to buy but I would implore you to cancel your order if you don't want to buy. Also I will be purchasing about 5 extra of the 3 most popular colors (ea) for those who are less active. The price is about $6 before shipping, I will price out the shipping to various places in Europe today.

I live near Austin. The last meet up was in Houston. There is another Austin meetup coming in August. Details on Reddit, I'll cross post it here in a bit.

Ah forgot to note, thanks to XMIT for communicating with the seller and making this happen! Are you going to have the supplier bring yours to the meetup?

Here we go this will likely be the numbers ordered. No yellow or green due to lack of interest and to keep things simple. There will be some extras of each color, hopefully not too many (It's at about 10 extras right now). People who said they wanted "a colored keycap" can choose from red or light blue or white. Colored keycaps will be $0.70 more because of Unicomp pricing.

10 light blue
5 pearl
30 pebble
15 red
5 white

hey everyone! i'm the formerly silent dye-sublimater from Houston! my first attempt to make this project happen ended strangely once i realize that these caps actually have a much lower melting point that all other PBT caps I've used in previous projects and the short time frame i had to do this in (an afternoon). the image transfer onto the caps was quite good in those caps that did not melt, but due to these other limitations and rushing it to XMIT for the Austin Meetup it didn't come together in time.

since then i've been designing and making my website, but now that that's off the ground, i'm revisiting this project! can everyone who still wants a cap post or PM me to confirm with their quantity and color of unicomp cap? (http://www.pckeyboard.com/page/product/KEY) i now have a thermistor-based feedback system to control my hot-plate's temperature, so i expect much better, more consistent results!
