Group Buy Thread

Ketchup or mustard?

Inspired by the seemingly-mandatory diners present in most of the shows we watched growing up. Wouldn't it be cool to deck out your keyboard like it was actually part of your favorite 90's sitcom? It would, it would be totally cool. Proud to introduce to you GMK Diner.

Group Buy runs from August 1 until September 1

Your iso support is off. Choose between terminal or UK, I wouldn’t do both. Also, why the second 2u space in spacebars kit? Glwic!

Could we get three key 40s (r2 1.75u backspace, r3 1.25u tab, r3 1.5u enter) added to the base kit?

Love the colors here, reminds me of Nickelodeon/Cartoon Network show representations of diners.

could the split bars in the spacebars set be RAL 500* and then you keep the accent yellow 6.25u and 7u?

My guess, based on the texture is that the answer is going to be yes: Please make the background of the Pillow65 render into a deskmat and you'll have my wallet.

Very interesting concept, glad to see a set going outside of the "typical" mod/alpha/accent color blocking, this one surely does not look like GMK Olivia.

Could we get three key 40s (r2 1.75u backspace, r3 1.25u tab, r3 1.5u enter) added to the base kit?

To everyone asking for adding keys to the base kit: With GMK's pricing being what it is recently I'm very careful making sure it's as light as possible. I'm balancing compatibility with base kit price. Either make an expensive set covering most keyboards but affordable by few, or try to make it a little bit more affordable by sacrificing a little compatibility. I'll keep listening though, but would need a stronger signal.

[...] why the second 2u space in spacebars kit? Glwic!

My bad, will remove.

My guess, based on the texture is that the answer is going to be yes: Please make the background of the Pillow65 render into a deskmat and you'll have my wallet.

That's the plan! (to take your wallet, but also to make it a deskmat)

Very interesting concept, glad to see a set going outside of the "typical" mod/alpha/accent color blocking, this one surely does not look like GMK Olivia.

Shame on you for making me snort.

could the split bars in the spacebars set be RAL 500* and then you keep the accent yellow 6.25u and 7u?

That sounds incredibly boring, not at all something you'd see at your local burger joint.

I'll buy the macro kit

Thank you my feathered friend. You'd look good on our menu.

+1

To everyone asking for adding keys to the base kit: With GMK's pricing being what it is recently I'm very careful making sure it's as light as possible.

How much additional cost do those three keys add? I'm not trying to be facetious -- I'm legitimately curious, because I do not have a good idea of what these key additions cost.

If the base kit add is too high, would you consider a 40s child kit?

I feel like the colors are etched into our minds. This set was specifically inspired by the Saved By The Bell diner.

Less than a week to go. Thanks for all the feedback during the IC, it really had an impact. Artisan prototypes are almost done, and so is the prototype for a cable from Space. First set of samples of the deskmats had some color issues so we’re doing another round of those soon.

See y’all Sunday for the kickoff of the GB!!

't was the Friday before the group buy... How about some artisans, huh? There will be 2: a R1 1u ketchup bottle, and a R3 2.25u ketchup squirt. Both are aluminum with a white coating, and use 3 different colors of enamel fill. They're quite unique IMO.
