TKC is hiring a Design Intern!

About TheKey.Company

TKC is a veteran mechanical keyboards and mech-essories vendor within the community. We're almost 3 years old!

We wanted to create a company to bring awesome products to the community while providing the best customer service possible. At the time, this did not exist. To this day TKC still provides the highest level of customer service and innovation in the industry.
