An interesting set. I have to assume this is dye-sub. I'm on the fence until you get some samples. I'd hate to see this design end up washed out and faded.

I have some preliminary samples, and i am impressed in the quality of the dye sub, even some of the thinnest lines are are very legible, These are still being tweaked and the colors of the samples have changed slightly so I will share the next round

Love the colourway and theme, there is definitely something retro and classy about it. Just need a white and gold accents board to match this with hehe

I'd only be interested with either UK in base or an additional nordeuk kit personally, which you've been really good about supporting before. Shame to see it dropped.

Would also really want to see physical samples (under several lighting conditions, ideally) and know about production process and manufacturer.

There's prototypes and this set isn't feasible with doubleshot. If it's not for you that's understandable, but not sure what the point is to reply to the IC post with no content besides commenting on one of the two ways it could be manufactured to begin with, and pad printing would have it's own downsides

I'm not a fan of so many forced accents in the kit. In my opinion, Esc, Enter, space and the F-keys should all have base color variants included too, not just the arrow keys. Let users decide which accents they want to use, it'll make your set more flexible and therefore more desirable.

That being said, consider only including one color variant of the shorter spacekeys (2u, 2.25u, 2.75u), either accented or non-accented, if you need to save on space in the kit.
