Cylent was the one who introduced me the the Keycap designer discord, and gave many tips that eventually led to where this set is today. Without them, this set would never be what it is now.

Ai/Nolsia drew the novelties for me to fit dyesub regulations. An eagle eyed vector artist. Thanks for helping with the set!

JohnYYZ very friendly manufacture who helped me with the set!

Actrin gave me very helpful kitting tips! Thanks for your help!

Nopun, kure, add, seven, ad4m, hzsh, and Neely taught me so many helpful tips, and without them this set would have looked way worse.




Updates :

Once GB's are up, their links will be added to the Vendor names as a hyperlink.

Is it PBT sublimation or ABS double shot?
Why is the production so long?
Other milky way sets were faster

I would buy a rug that looks like the milky way alpenglow logo

Wondering if it's ok to ask, how is it going in terms of sales? Has it reached MOQ? Really looking forward to this set.

It is PBT, whether it is dyesub, i can neither confirm nor deny. Production shouldn't be that long though, Q3 2022 is arrival date at your door. Low amounts of basekits sold means lower production time, so it should only take around 4 months to reach your doors steps.

Hey, hey, hey!!! R4 Colors have been approved an we have moved onto the QC stage. There have been a few issues with qc, mainly the ones listed below. These issues have been sent to the manu.

Thok Artisans have shipped out.

1) Black needs to be color matched to original black.
2) Row 4 mods need to be colormatched to the original color sample.
3) Row 3 mods need to be matched to the new sample. It seems as if MW has acidentally used the old R3 sample.
4) SB Novs need an SVG update. This has been fixed and a new SVGS have been put into the google drive.
5) SVGS need to be enlarged. New SVGS have been provided for this fix in the google drive.
6) Quality issues with nov clarity. Some of the darker novs seem to have noticebly blurry edges. Row 3 has quite a bit of bleeding/splotching issues.
7) Black+Pink Novs are also not color matched to the rest of the set. All of the sb novs have their color slightly off.

Just a reminder, both desk mats have been approved and have been moved to production.

Also addressing the latest MW issues such as their scratchy caps and qc issues, I will make sure that Alpenglow is not shipped until these qc issues are resolved.

Predicated date of arrival is now 2022 Q4- 2023 Q1
