Introducing The 75% Mechanical Keyboard Sleeve (2 Sizes)
This April, I introduced the 75% mechanical keyboard sleeve in 2 sizes. I was a little surprised at how much bigger these keyboards are getting and how popular this size is. When I started making sleeves 4 years ago, many of them were for 40% and 60% keyboards.
Making keyboard sleeves and cases are interesting because I sometimes get a surge of orders at once for a certain size. For example, if I get a bunch of 65% sleeve orders, I always ask Christian, “What new keyboard just came out?” He’s usually on top of it and can tell me what’s going on. That’s why I keep giving him lateral promotions within our 2 person business 🙂
In April, I made Blake (in nearby Kansas City, Missouri) the first 75% sleeve for his KBDFans KBD75 v2 keyboard. This one is the standard size. He was happy we offered it and wanted his own custom colours for it.
There is also a large bezel sleeve which is wider and shorter in length. This would fit the Glorious GMMK PRO and Keychron Q1 keyboards.
When our repeat customer (in San Jose, California) ordered his, I figured this size is quite popular since he seems to have almost every size keyboard (this is his 5th order by the way). Here are the two 75% large bezel sleeves he ordered. He also ordered two TKL cases along with it (top most photo).
Here’s a comparison of the 75% and a 65% standard one. Skylar (in San Antonio, Texas) ordered this custom 75% large bezel sleeve in the custom colours she chose (charcoal grey and orange). It is a wide and stocky looking sleeve.
Upon finishing another 75% large bezel sleeve, I was curious as to how a TKL size keyboard would fit in it. As you can see, the TKL is longer by about 2 columns of keys, but the width of the keyboard fits it.
Here’s another great colour combination ordered by Nick (in Melbourne, Australia). Again, it is a 75% large bezel sleeve and he also personalized his.
Lastly, I’ll just show you one more in a nice colour combination in the large bezel size. This one is for Christian (in nearby Boston, Massachusetts). He’s actually the first person to order the large size back in April.
75% keyboards were very popular in the last few months. If you do have one and need a sleeve for it, please head over to the online shop. You will be able to order custom colours and have it personalized there. 1. Choose your sleeve size 2. Add the custom colour listing to your cart.
Stock colours require up to 5 business days to make before shipping. Custom orders require 7-10 days. As we head towards the busy season, please order early especially if it’s a gift. Thankfully, we have not encountered long delays from the normal shipping estimates this year. However, as you know, things are still uncertain with Covid and there are no guaranteed shipping arrivals.
