April update

If you are reading this… we love you.

March was full of fun. We’ve had various restocks that sell out almost immediately, our Discord has boomed and we’re rapidly approaching our 1,000th order. In the last update, we talked about creeping up to our 500th order in our third month of operating… We’ve now nearly matched that in the past month alone!

We continually thank you all for your support and we sincerely mean this. Norritt started KeebCats with the vision of giving the UK community easy access to a wealth of keeb-related goodies, and with your help, we are achieving that goal.

Shipping update

If you had ordered over the past week, you may have received an email regarding the issues we were having shipping with Royal Mail.

For transparency, we’ve recently switched over to Royal Mail Business which presented us with some completely unexpected handover issues. We were without any supplies to actually ship your orders which we only found out when we tried to hand them over at the Post Office! 

It was quite the week, but we’re now happy to say all issues are now resolved and we’re offering Royal Mail 24 as a standard. This will be tracked with any tracking updates showing on attempted delivery, giving both you and us more confidence in items arriving on time.

New products

Lube Starter Kits

Something which we’re incredibly excited to be launching is our new Lube Starter Kits. We’re offering anyone who wants to grab all the essentials a lovely bundle with all they need to get modding!

For a discounted price you get:

  • Set of lube brushes
  • MX switch opener
  • Stem holder
  • Keycap and switch remover
  • 3ml Krytox GPL 205 Grade 0
  • 3ml Krytox GPL 105

As well as this, if you purchase the Starter Kit with either a small or large Lube Station and/or TriboSys 3203/3204, we’re offering an additional 10% off of the extras!

Lubes!

We’re welcoming the Queens/Kings of tactile switches and stabs to our product line: TriboSys 3204 & Krytox XHT-BDZ

TriboSys 3204, generally unobtainable in the UK, is frequently recommended as an excellent choice for smoothing out tactile switches whilst retaining tactility.

Krytox XHT-BDZ, a pricier but THICC alternative to 205g0 which is growing more popular as the choice lube for stabilisers. A little goes a long way which is why we’re only stock 3ml jars of XHT-BDZ, and we’ll be following up with a guide on how it’s best used soon.

KeebCats Lube Station - Small

Last month we were happy to introduce our first KeebCats-designed product, the KeebCats Lube Station. Now, with feedback gathered through our Discord, we’re introducing a budget-friendly alternative, the small Lube Station!

Holding 30 stems & housings and coming in two colours, this variant was suggested by our community and we’re happy to be giving the people what they want! 

We’ll still be stocking the larger variant for all you folks who want to get your hands on it, and have you heard about our secret batch of B-Stock Stations that you can only get via our Discord… Join for more info.

Our designs are always up for iteration, so if you have any thoughts on what could make the design even better, please let us know using this form.

Join our Discord!

Our Discord server is ever-growing and as such we want to come up with new ways to keep the community engaged, informed and given access to exclusive discounts. 

We’re also working on a monthly giveaway for you folks… Potentially based on user activity with a cap on how many times in a year you can win, we’ll be wrapping up the year with an extra special Christmas giveaway out of the pool of previous winners. Get chatting!

That’s it for this month folks. If you have any feedback or suggestions for us, you can reach out to us on Discord or via our Contact Us page.

Until next time, stay safe and spread the word,

KeebCats
