[IC] DCS Pink Alert
« on: Mon, 14 February 2022, 12:00:01 »
DCS Pink Alert

Welcome to the Pink Alert IC, a set idea I had whilst getting zooted on the balcony one time and thought to myself "Damn, I really want that to exist". Now that you know where you are, lets get into it shall we? :cool:

Inspiration
DCS Red Alert is one of my favourite sets of all time and pastel pink is one of my favourite colors. So why not combine them?

IC Form
Once you've had a gander at what Pink Alert has to offer for now, it'd be much appreciated if you could take a few minutes to fill the IC Form above so I know what you guys would like to see change.



Kits
Keep in mind renders are not to be used as exact color reference as they are not representative of how the set will look in real life.
All kits rendered by Paul

MX / Alps Base Kit
This kit will be offered in both MX and Alps variants


Numpad Kit
Extra Chonky to support both styles for this set. As well as being usable on a standalone numpad


Alt Mod Kit
For those feeling a little extra spicy


Femboy Kit
For those who know size doesn't matter  ;)


Relegendable Kit
Only MX for now, if you'd like to see an Alps variant for this, fill out the IC form!!!


Spacebar Kit
Pretty self-explanatory


Bulge Kit

10u spacebar for those who like showing off their package


Enye Kit
Honestly this is just for me and my homies in the Spanish-speaking communities


Board Renders
These are purely to help you visualise the set on a keyboard. Do NOT use these for color reference

Color Samples
Color Samples finally here. These are a good way to get a rough idea of how the pink should actually look like IRL.
These pictures are taken in natural daylight in front of my open window. Lighting has a massive impact on colors, so keep in mind that shade of pink may contrast under your desklamp at 3AM  :thumb:.


In the picture: SP Color Chips (RCS & WFK), MG1 GMK Color Sample, ePBT Blank  Pink 1u (Pantone 189c), GMK Noel Accent Enter, Two pink frogs from the Lego Bonsai, TTC Gold Pink v3, JWK Pinoko, Gateron Pink, DCS Red Alert R3 Caps (RDD &WFK)

Camera: Canon M50 w/Sigma 105mm Macro Lens
Pictures edited in lightroom for accuracy on a 2021 MBP Screen

Deskmat
More

There's countless pastel pink deskmats available on the market. I don't feel there's a need to add another to that list, lets focus on what really matters here  :thumb:



General Information

Profile: DCS (1-1-2-3-4-4)
Material: Doubleshot ABS
Colors: SP Stock RCS (Pink) & WFK (White)

Vendors & Pricing

USA - TBA
CA - TBA
SA - TBA
EU - TBA
UK - TBA
CN - TBA
SK - TBA
JP - TBA
SEA - TBA
OCE - TBA
IN - TBA

Pricing - Target pricing will be provided within a couple weeks of posting this IC. This is so that I may more accurately estimate what a realistic MOQ is for the set.



Why

DCS: Aside from the relatively short lead times, I genuinely love the profile and typing feel of these keycaps. For those who are still stuck on the mindset that thin keycaps are inherently bad, I would argue that's only the case when it's paired with the low quality materials and OEM-tier manufacturing processes those are typically made with. The thinness of ABS DCS attributes to less dampening of switch feedback, even going as far as making tactiles feel more tactile due to this effect. Moreover the unique "chirpy" / thin sound profile, albeit polarising, further adds to what makes me and many others love it.

ABS: Not only is DCS PBT far more expensive than ABS DCS and thicker (thus losing a part of what I love about thin DCS), it's also just not possible for this design due to the white on pink keycaps as they require reverse dye-sublimation; which Signature Plastics can't do as of yet.

Wyse Legends: I personally enjoy the unique aesthetic this font provides and think it works well with the profile. I understand there are those who may prefer I use Cherry legends but this will not be a possibility for this set. If this is a dealbreaker for you, there are plenty of other wonderful sets that make use of great pastel pinks  ;D
 
This kitting: The kits you see above have been carefully thought out, taking into consideration all the sage advice provided from friends and wise community members alike. To reiterate - if you have any suggestions or criticisms that you believe may help improve the set, please do not hold back! Fill out the IC form and voice your opinion in this thread.
