ordering options

switch types

The switch types change the "feel" of the keys and whether or not they make a sharp clicking sound when pressed.

laser engraving

I can etch a custom text and/or logo in white color on the bottom plate of the case if you want. Please add a note with the text or a link to an SVG file with the design to the order if you choose this option. Please note that any customization has to fit next to the original engraving as seen in this picture.
