GMK SOYAMILK

A refreshing set that’s straight out of your childhood lunch box and afternoon snacks. A heartfelt homage to the soyamilk that we grew up with and remember fondly.
We drew inspiration from a vintage soyamilk drink box from an era long before our time, hoping to provide a throwback aesthetic that resonates with our childhood.


SOYAMILK FOR CHARITY
Because GMK Soyamilk is a food-themed keycap set, inspired by a drink that raised us, we want to use this opportunity and platform to pay back to our heritage, particularly to the elderly in the Asian American community that shaped us into who we are.

As a design team, we are pledging to donate a percentage of our profits towards the charity Heart of Dinner, which has a goal of “nourishing NYC’s East Asian elders with love and food every week”.
Proof of donation will be provided for posterity after the group buy.
If this is a cause that resonates with you, please consider supporting the project or donating towards the charity!

We are incredibly excited to finally announce that GMK Soyamilk will be going to group buy on October 1st, 2021 to November 1st, 2021! We will be working with CannonKeys as our lead vendor. Estimated delivery date of the set is Q4 2022.

Hi All,

There's a little under 2 weeks remaining in our group buy!
A huge thank you to all who have supported our project or given us encouragement and advice!
We are pleased to announce that we are over 75% of our MOQ for our basekit, and we are confident that the project will be fulfilled.
This is our first group buy, and it has been a huge learning curve, but we have enjoyed every minute of it so far!

Cheers,
studioblb

P.S. 40s users who desperately wanted 40s kits in our IC wya? pls buy the extensions kit or it'll die kthxbai
