Meowcaps V.3 Sale

Sale Information and FAQs

While Kudos is working on a sekkret project, Koala-T has been tinkering away in our lab. For us, Meowcaps holds a special place in our heart. Back in early 2015, KeyKollectiv released our very first cap: Meowcaps V1.

Two years after the first launch, Koala-T has decided to revisit this classic. This time, she's incorporated our current design philosophy to create a Meowcap that is minimal but still captures the charm of the original.

We hope you have a chance to take one of these caps home with you soon!

FAQ

Please see our General FAQ page here

Q: What is a Meowcap?

A: Meowcap was the very first artisan cap that KeyKollectiv made available to the public. Back then, our only interest was to make stuff that we wanted on our own boards. As owners of cats, the Meowcap just made sense. Now, two years after our first sale, we wanted to revisit this classic. Read more about our first cap below:

Meowcaps v2

Q: What format will Meowcap V3 be available in?

A: They will be available in both MX and Topre format.

Q: Are there any limits to how many I can buy?

A: As supplies are limited, we want to make sure that we get these Meowcaps adopted to as many homes as possible. To do so, we will be limiting each order to 3 caps maximum per order.

Q: What happens if I win a spot in the sale but the caps I want aren’t available?

A: In the Google Form, you may select up to 5 caps that you wish to purchase. In the event that the cap you want is no longer available, you may choose to buy another style based on the preferences you provide.

Q: How many times may I enter the raffle?

A: In order to give everyone a fair chance, there is a limit of one entry per person. Please note that all duplicate entries will be cancelled and disqualified. In the event that multiple entries were made by accident, you may email us at support@keykollectiv.com and we can adjust your entry accordingly.

Q: A family member/friend/significant other would also like to enter. Would we be disqualified?

A: So long as a different Paypal email address is provided, each entry will count as separate raffles.

Q: What if I want 2 or more of the same style?

A: No worries, just select the same style when prompted for your top choices.

Q: I won a spot but I’ve changed my mind and want to make adjustments to my order. What do?

A: Contact us at support@keykollectiv.com. Please keep in mind that our stock is very limited and most caps will be allocated already. However, we will do our very best to accommodate your needs.

A: An invoice will be sent to the Paypal email address you provided in the entry form. Please be sure to carefully check your entry before completing the form.

Q: I received an invoice. How long do I have to pay it?

A: To ensure timely order fulfillment, we ask that all winners pay their invoices within 48 hours of receiving it. Please note that due to the limited supply, unpaid invoices are subject to cancellation and your spot may be forfeited to another entrant.

Q: The shipping address of my Paypal email address isn’t accurate/current! What do I do?

A: We ask that all entrants check their Paypal information before submitting their raffles. In the event that changes to shipping must be made, you can contact us and we will do our best to modify the order.

Orders will be fulfilled in the order that it was paid. Expect tracking information (via Paypal) within 5-10 business days (usually shorter). Shipping times are based on USPS priority (CONUS) or First Class International (International) services.

Q: I've entered numerous KeyKollectiv raffles and I've yet to win. What gives?

We're sorry that luck hasn't been in your favor. Ideally, we'd be making enough caps for everyone but it simply isn't feasible for us. We certainly understand the frustration that comes with raffle style sales. If you would like to read more about our stance on cap distribution, you can check out blog post here:

FAQ

Please see our General FAQ page here

Q: What is Furt?

A: Furt is a slime creature from space who devours and merges with it's host. The concept of Furt was conceived as a means for us to explore the limitations of resin encapsulation. He would, later on, become the "vehicle" for past releases such as Schrodinger (PurrKeys), Killwala (Keywala), Frankenfurt and Kosmonavt. You can read more about Furt:

http://www.keykollectiv.com/blog/2016/2/10/furt-genesis-1

http://www.keykollectiv.com/blog/2016/2/10/furt-extinction

Q: What format will Furt Reborn be available in?

A: They will be available in both MX and Topre format.

Q: What is "Flubburt"? How is it different than the regular Furts? Why is it more expensive?

A: Flubburt is a "proof of concept" cap. Instead of polyurethane resin, we opted for rubber. Because these new materials are much more difficult to work with, we had to change the way we set up our mold-making and resin casting techniques. 

Q: How many Furts/Flubburts were made?

A: Generally, KeyKollectiv doesn't like to divulge information about how many keycaps we make. We want to make sure that our fans manage their expectations about their chances of winning. 

Overall, only about 20 of each style (Furt) was made (Topre and MX). As for Flubburt, only 20 were made in total. 

Due to the complexity and difficulty in making Furt/Flubburt, we kept production to a minimal.

Q: Are there any limits to how many I can buy?

A: As Furt Reborn is a proof of concept project, very few caps were made. As such, we are limiting purchased caps to 3 per person. 

Q: Wait. What is this keychain in the order form?!?!

A: We are proud to offer these cute MomKollectiv keychains. You may only purchase up to 2 keychains per order. As a bonus, we will be including a free Dark Matter Furt keycap with some of the keychains we send out. Dark Matter can only be acquired by winning one with purchase of keychain.

Q: What are the odds of winning Dark Matter Furt with keychain purchase?

A: Each keychain has a 1 in 3 chance of winning a Dark Matter Furt.

Q: What if I don’t win a spot in the sale but would still like to buy a keychain?

A: Unfortunately, due to the low number of keychains made, they will likely not be available to purchase after the sale. 

Q: What happens if I win a spot in the sale but the caps I want aren’t available?

A: In the Google Form, you may select up to 5 caps that you wish to purchase. In the event that the cap you want is no longer available, you may choose to buy another style based on the preferences you provide.

MomKollectiv 60% Sleeve and Plush Keychain Group Buy


Due to extenuating circumstances within my family, KeyKollectiv will be running a small group buy for 60% sleeves and plush keychains. All proceeds will be going to my mom. We are currently accepting limited spots for the initial order. Depending on production and materials, we may expand into more batches down the line.

Order here


What are these sleeves and plushes made of?

The cases are made with water resistant synthetic fabric and lined with soft felt. Each case has a drawstring enclosure as well as a velcro flap for extra security. Plush keychains are made of 100% cotton.

What kind of keyboards can these sleeves hold?

These cases are designed for 60% keyboards like HHKB and Pok3r. Keyboards like Leopold 660M/C fit as well.

What colors are the sleeves and plushes available in?

Due to limited stock in materials, the cases are only available in black (for the time being). The plush keychains are only available in white.

How much will they cost?

As this is our first foray into accessories, we want to keep prices are reasonable as possible. We are pricing the sleeves at $35 each. Plush keychains are $8 individually and $5 when bought with a sleeve. ($40 for sleeve/key chain combo).

How will this group buy be rolled out?

Our Google order form will remain live from June 20th to June 26th. At the end of entry, we will tally up all orders and determine how many rounds this group buy will consist of. Entries will be assigned to rounds based on when they are initially submitted.

Once your order has been assigned to their respective rounds, we will begin sending out invoices. Because materials need to be purchased, we ask that you post payment within the first 48 hours. As these are all hand-made overseas, expect shipment in 2-4 weeks (from time of invoice).

We will roll out a new round incrementally (most likely weekly). Available spots in Group Buy is entirely dependent on how many my mom can produce and how much material we have left. As such, the number of entries we accept will be limited.

Is there a limit to the amount of cases and plushes I can purchase?

Yes, you will be limited to 5 of each (though I'm not sure who would buy 5 sleeves).

Will there be any GB's for sleeves after this sale?

We will be exploring our options once we wrap up this buy. At this current point, we are unclear whether this product offering will remain available after this sale.

How can we contribute or show our support? Do you accept donations?

We get asked this question quite a bit and the answer is no. We do not accept donations. My mom is a proud woman and wants to earn it. You can show your support by participating in this or future KeyKollectiv sales.


If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us at support@keykollectiv.com directly. Thanks and good luck to all!
