GMK Electronics - Colored Esc's, Modifier Sets, CMYK, Number Row

Quote
Preface
We are establishing our relationship with GMK Electronics as a community, rather than a vendor.  At the moment, I am acting as the single point of contact (with lysol's technical expertise at my hand) as a means of effectively communicating with GMK. 

While it's understandable that many of you would like to begin running GBs or custom keys with them, they are extremely busy at this moment producing orders for individual retailers, industrial manufacturers and whoever else out there that has a lot of capital.  Our goal here is to understand the process more than anything and contribute that knowledge to our future GB leaders.
 
With that being said, GMK has still found room in their busy schedule to make time allocations for our community.  The caveat here is that they can only produce certain items.  These items include novelty keys, modifier sets, and smaller things like that.  Given the time constraints, this project is going to be managed and micromanaged as much as we can.

TL;DR:  Be nice, be prompt and be aware.  We don’t have time to dilly dally, so choose your colors and pay your invoice within 48 hours after the GB closes.

Objective
We are gathering your opinions on color combinations for the specific sets below and nothing else.  We have designated the 4 products that will be commissioned to GMK for production.

*Full set discussions will take place AFTER this poll has completed.  Please do not discuss in here*

Quote
Voting on Keycap Sets
We will be voting on colors and deciding a SINGLE color variant for each set, except the CMYK set.  For example, if the highest rated color for the modifier kits was Purple, the only modifier set you can buy in the GB is Purple.

Voting:
1.Esc Bundle: Top 3 colors variations will be chosen.
2.Modifier Pack:  1 color variation will be chosen.
3.CMY-K Pack:  No color voting.
4.Number Row Pack:  1 color variation will be chosen.

VOTING ENDED

*Green color is AE. Thanks hashbaz for mockups =)

Price and MOQ
We don’t have pricing and MOQ for full sets yet, but we plan to inquire about it in the next couple weeks. 

In order for us to receive a quote, we had to give sample colors because prices do deviate depending how easily they can get the colors.  We primarily chose either green, purple or brown for starters based on their original samples and feedback from the thread.  Of course, these are subject to change based on the polling but that shouldn’t deviate the price to any significant degree per set.

Esc Bundle (3x Esc keycaps)
  • Quoted Colors:  Green, Purple, Brown with White Legends
  • MOQ:  500 sets (i.e. 1500 keycaps)
  • Price:  $5.76 per set
Modifier Pack (31 keycaps, different sizes)
  • Quoted Colors:  Purple, Brown with White Legends
  • MOQ:  400 sets
  • Price:  $23.68 per set for either color
CMY-K Pack (16 keycaps, different sizes)
  • Quoted Colors:  Cyan, Magenta, Yellow with Black Legends
  • MOQ:  400 sets
  • Price:  Unknown at the moment.  There was confusion around what we wanted here so a new quote for this should be available tomorrow.
Number Row Pack (13 keycaps)
  • Quoted Colors:  Purple, Brown with White Legends
  • MOQ:  400 sets
  • Price:  $15.50 per set for either color
7x Spacebars
  • Quoted Colors:  Beige, Black, Dolch Grey
  • MOQ:  N/A.  No quote yet.
  • Price:  N/A.  No quote yet.

So by White/green do you mean white with a green legend, or white legend on a green keycap?
Also, I'd prefer the darker green option (N7?) but I'll take what I can get :)

so are these prices exactly what GMK quoted you? that would mean shipping to the US, US taxes, and individual shipping wouldn't be included.
Check out my sales thread.

Phantom w/ErgoClears
KBC w/Reds and Cherry doubleshots in imsto\'s case
G80-1800HAU w/ErgoClears
Realforce 86U Variable
KMAC Titanium/Winkeyless (in the mail)

Thanks and awesome! Form filled.

I might be in for more sets, especially if it looks like we'll need more people to make this happen, but I only filled the form for the sets I KNOW I'll be getting.

Totally worth staying up until 3:00Om to do this. Very exciting.

7x spacebar -> does that mean 7 units long spacebar, which is the original cherry lenght and not compatible to any modern board, except the korean custom ones? If yes, wouldnt it make more sense to offer the standard 6.25 spacebar? or is this one not available?


And what about beige/white mod pack?  :eek:   Rayuki had a GB started about that one, with quite huge interest in that, rather than in exotic purple colors.

Voted.

I've tried to curtail my obsession with yellow, hoping that if this pans out I might be able to get a full matching yellow set rather than trying to build up a set form bits and pieces.
... to force the flat horseshoe-style cherry on the date of the first pillar of the keycaps ...

Good job Dan/Lysol (DanSol, DanYsol? make sure you record the fusion dance and post it in the media section :D)
MOQ is kinda high, I hope we can hit it..!
Do you have any idea of a possible schedule? Once we have this it would save a lot to find a German proxy, probably DT is a good place to ask for this
