Sad to see the loss of arctic blue!

That sakura engraving below the USB cutout is breathtaking, definitely interested.

Any chance red will be considered as a color?

Aww yeah, here we go!

Seems a little dark. Is it just the render?

First pic under Additional Renders

That said, I'm sad to see the blue go, would have much rather lost the purple. Feel like there were probably a lot of people who picked purple who are now going pink. Thought blue was a more distinctive alternative.

How do I get the banner in my signature? I'm new and can't figure it out or find how to do this anywhere. Sorry in advance if this has been answered before.

Edit: Never mind. I finally figured out how to get a banner in my signature.

Love the design any chance the size of bezels will be decreased?

Too chonky, currently. Don't hate the bezels just that they too much in their current state.

Please upload images to Imgur or host them yourself instead of linking them straight from Discord's CDN. Not only will your images be visible in browsers with tight privacy and XSS settings (which they aren't atm; see below), but Imgur also has a better uptime track record than Discord, and you're able to keep all images for your thread neatly organized in one place if you make a post.



This applies to your sig pics as well.

Can you please clarify on the following:

- Adding ESD protection for the PCB?
- USB-C port?
- Will there be an option to buy an extra PCB for backup during the GB?

Hi there.
Yes ESD protection will be present. Yes it will be USB-C. And yes, there will be an option to buy more PCBs/Plates. The plate file will also be opensourced following the conclusion of the GB

Not too sure. The PCB is meant to be exclusive to the sakura-660 GB, however we can see when the time comes.

If you look up Salvun's logo artisan keycap it was one of the colors available. The pictures used for the keycap were real images and not renders, if you want that reference.

If not how am I able to also reserve?

Hi there. I want to make this completely clear by saying that no one, absolutely no one, will have a spot reserved for them. Regardless of who you are in this community, whether you are another designer, vendor or streamer, there will be 0 reservations. I want to make sure everyone interested in this board is on a level playing field!
