Welcome to the new website!
Welcome to the new Mechboards UK website! Did you like the ribbon?
We’ve been working on this website for the last 3 months, and although it’s now live, there may be some little quirks or issues you may find. If you do find anything you think doesn’t seem correct, please get in touch.
This new website was built from the ground up, with the expert help and guidance from Dave who has done an amazing job. We wouldn’t be here without him. You will find all the old products we always had, as well as some new ones. Some images will still be missing until we get all the stock we’re waiting on in hand. Your accounts were moved, but old orders and support tickets are no longer available. They are available on the old website which is still accessible.
COVID update – Post is only being picked up Monday and Thursday at the moment, which will slow down our delivery times. We are still packing orders every day so your order will head out, just a little slower than usual. Thanks for being patient.

I’m a 25 year old Graphic Designer by day and Mechboards is my job evenings and weekends so this will be in the free time I’ve got left at the end of all that. Not much! This is an idea about why or how mechanical keyboards are like Lego pieces, built with precision and a preset plan, then bundled like glued together Duplo blocks. We have the individual pieces that we can personalise to the nth degree, yet are confined to 3/4 main design layouts. If we want to switch between these layouts, we have to buy separate products. It’s like designing your perfect car, the colour you want, engine size, manual or auto, and then, it comes only as a minivan. Even if you picked 2 doors and a V8. Minivan. 450hp? Minivan. Nope. This ain’t right.

Development of the DC-01: Progress in Pictures
It’s been a long journey getting the DC-01 from a dream into a functioning prototype, and longer still until we can get it into the hands of all the people who want one. But until then, here’s a gallery of the progress made so far!
