[GB] GMK STORM | color sample approved
« on: Thu, 28 January 2021, 05:43:38 »



Hello,
Storm GB is live!!

Have you ever seen the sky before the storm? It's really amazing.
This is a keycap design that looks like a stormy sky. It represents various cloud colours.
Colours are often related to settings. The stormy sky coloured the gradation and we thought this would be cool for people other than ourself.

GL w/ GB.  I particularly like the artisans.

Can you edit the post to include links to the sales? Also, some pricing information?

I dunno about the 40s kit, but I’d be shocked if the rest wasn’t gonna be made. I’d buy another base if necessary.

#IHaveConcerns

It doesn't look like this will meet MOQ... I just bought into it, too... Man... I really love the colors used here.

I'm really big on weather-watching/Storm-chasing, so this set made a lot of sense for my life.

Maybe I'll be wrong?

My 20 bucks to your 5$ the base gets made. Raise the stakes if you want.

It'll hit, especially if we keep it at the top by commenting B)

Lol at expecting replies from a designer who barely wrote three sentences for their official GB post.

It's kinda not a good sign when the US distributor of this keyset isn't really responsive to questions either on their site or on their Discord... Which seems to have been dead since late 2019.

Not a better sign when the creator of this keyset isn't posting either here on GK or on Reddit with updates about their GB.

I'm not feeling positive about this, but I certainly hope there will be an update shortly.

I've seen Kono never release numbers on their GB's. Many buys dont have their final numbers up for two weeks. There is no chance kits other than the 40s fail. Kono doesn't write you back inside a week usually. They've also shipped 15-20 GB's to me and made right errors made by signature plastics. You may get no update for a month and it doesn't matter.

Here's a modern era buy from an all time top 5 designer and a consensus top 2 vendor. Theres. One. Update. About. Numbers. For GMK Storm you got to see MOQ nearly made 10 days out when on 50+ sets in the last year ~30-40% of sales are often within the last 3 days.

You know what's gonna happen when the colors go to get matched? There's gonna be delays because there's 7 custom colors. This won't ship till the second half of 2022 no matter what estimate GMK gives you. You will have 6 months where you hear nothing. This is just how it is. You want weekly updates and reassurance, buy something from Mito.

Still think you're right and have concerns? I offered 4:1 odds before this runs. I'll do 5:1.

Everything except the 40s kit reached MOQ even without half the vendors not updating numbers for almost two weeks, and only one providing the ending numbers (Kono). The 40s still could reach if there are additional sales from the other vendors. Some people (especially business owners, the ones you're complaining about) are extremely busy and typically take some time to get a response from. Anyways, the keycaps aren't shipping until November at the earliest, so what's the rush?

I'm sorry. The sales total is delayed. I will update it again when the vendor finishes aggregating.
Currently, due to the Lunar New Year's holidays in China, it seems that we need a little time to input the final sales.

I received a color sample of GMK storm.

I think it came out perfectly with the color I thought.
