Glad you posted here. I’m getting a set and a plate and switches! Managed to pick up a H87 pcb on sale this weekend for my Jane. Will be an epic build in the end.

Will the plates be available post GB? Definitely want to grab a set of keycaps and switches but don’t have a build planned for the near future.

There will be a finite quantity of extra plates sold in-stock sometime down the line, after GB units ship :slight_smile:
