TKC grew a lot in 2019—we turned three years old in November and nearly tripled our orders this year. The growth started in the spring and we've been going steady ever since.
To support this, we've grown our team, launched a new website, and moved fulfillment centers. And we started our Discord server this year, where 3000 of you have joined us 👋 Jason wrote more about our origin story last month.
Here's a recap of what we've released.
Holy Panda hoodie / Katakana Cherry PBT (white on black) / GMK SKIIdata
- Katakana Cherry PBT, a high-quality, high-compatibility keyset inspired by the classic Apple font. We're bringing this back for round 2 in 2020.
- 💖 We ran a TKC1800 raffle to support a friend of Jason's. Thanks to everyone who joined.
- GMK SKIIdata, based on the iconic blue POS board by Skidata.
