Keyboard Building Service

A custom mechanical keyboard can yield an exciting and satisfying result. Custom keyboards can be personalized to your liking. While prebuilt boards will typically lock you into very few switch options and come with a keycap design that may not suit your liking a custom can suit all your preferences and wants.

The process of building a board can often be time-consuming and especially confusing for those who are new to mechanical keyboards. At The Tech Frontier, we have experience building many boards in our time and we have tried many different switches and keycaps so we can help make choosing parts a lot more simple too.

A build service is a great way to get your hands on a custom board that is built for you without needing to take the time or go through a process that you may not want to go through. This way you can still get a board with thoccs, high-quality keycaps, and a beautiful case design.
