Hallo, everyone! I'd like to introduce you to GMK Blanks!

(https://i.imgur.com/MAMJKdL.png)

Many people in this community seem to have a HUGE interest in
blank keycaps, so I thought it was long overdue that someone ran a GMK set for them. Yes, I know that
GMK blanks have been ran before, but I wanted this to be the first formal interest check/group buy.



Group Buy Info

When?

Vendors:Any other regional vendors are welcome!

Sorry for the lack of Ergo renders, I simply don't have the files for any ergo boards, so if anyone would like to share some or know where I can get some, that would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Thank you! This was a very high effort set that took me months to make, I spent days colormatching and waited about 6 months for pikku to get me my renders, so I'm glad to see someone appreciates it!  :p

Some historians speculate that April Fools’ Day dates back to 1582, when France switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar, as called for by the Council of Trent in 1563. In the Julian Calendar, as in the Hindu calendar, the new year began with the spring equinox around April 1.

People who were slow to get the news or failed to recognize that the start of the new year had moved to January 1 and continued to celebrate it during the last week of March through April 1 became the butt of jokes and hoaxes and were called “April fools.” These pranks included having paper fish placed on their backs and being referred to as “poisson d’avril” (April fish), said to symbolize a young, easily caught fish and a gullible person.

Historians have also linked April Fools’ Day to festivals such as Hilaria (Latin for joyful), which was celebrated in ancient Rome at the end of March by followers of the cult of Cybele. It involved people dressing up in disguises and mocking fellow citizens and even magistrates and was said to be inspired by the Egyptian legend of Isis, Osiris and Seth.

There’s also speculation that April Fools’ Day was tied to the vernal equinox, or first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, when Mother Nature fooled people with changing, unpredictable weather.

April Fools’ Day spread throughout Britain during the 18th century. In Scotland, the tradition became a two-day event, starting with “hunting the gowk,” in which people were sent on phony errands (gowk is a word for cuckoo bird, a symbol for fool) and followed by Tailie Day, which involved pranks played on people’s derrieres, such as pinning fake tails or “kick me” signs on them.

In modern times, people have gone to great lengths to create elaborate April Fools’ Day hoaxes. Newspapers, radio and TV stations and websites have participated in the April 1 tradition of reporting outrageous fictional claims that have fooled their audiences.

In 1957, the BBC reported that Swiss farmers were experiencing a record spaghetti crop and showed footage of people harvesting noodles from trees. In 1985, Sports Illustrated writer George Plimpton tricked many readers when he ran a made-up article about a rookie pitcher named Sidd Finch who could throw a fastball over 168 miles per hour.

In 1992, National Public Radio ran a spot with former President Richard Nixon saying he was running for president again… only it was an actor, not Nixon, and the segment was all an April Fools’ Day prank that caught the country by surprise.

In 1996, Taco Bell, the fast-food restaurant chain, duped people when it announced it had agreed to purchase Philadelphia’s Liberty Bell and intended to rename it the Taco Liberty Bell. In 1998, after Burger King advertised a “Left-Handed Whopper,” scores of clueless customers requested the fake sandwich. Google notoriously hosts an annual April Fools’ Day prank that has included everything from “telepathic search” to the ability to play Pac Man on Google Maps.

Omg it's completely white how can you do that how can you be so racist I mean you are clearly privileged and have no idea on how to represent other races and cultures you shallow racist person as a white man i feel obligated to apologise for this atrocious creation even though I have absolutely no affiliation to it I will also donate everything I own to blm because I am white and therefore automatically racist and blm is entitled to everything I own because I'm so privileged and slave trading or whatever you should be ashamed of yourself for a making a keycap set like this you can at least donate the profits to blm and then once you're done you can then work voluntary work to help people in africa because you're racist and have to pay back just like I do even though I've never done anything racist or have had any slaves it is still my duty as a white man to treat people of color as my superiors and I will never buy this keycap set as even though your intention isn't to be racist with this set there is a 1 in 1000000 chance that it will offend some random PoC who isn't me because I'm white mind you but because the chance is there I'm offended on their regard so you are a racist because I'm offended so delete this

I was going to comment what Note did...

If you're not getting any legends, UV prints, or custom colors, why not just get black/white blank PBT keys in cherry profile - that way they won't shine over time, and they're way cheaper. Oh yeah, and they're in stock and you won't have to wait the current 14 months for GMK.

Speaking of color matching, are you planning on getting samples before GB? I kinda want to see how the design on the caps will turn out, but since GMK's been packed with orders maybe that won't be feasible.

Also do you have any renders with a bit more natural lighting?

Yes, I could potentially add a ergodox kit if this set continues to gain popularity.

Thanks!

Also, a minor thing: when I was updating my signature, I noticed you didn't put the (/url) at the end of the code. It might f*'up the links from other banners, like yours (when I click the Lychee set, I get redirected to the GMK Blank thread instead).

Which keys were added for 40s support? For minimum 40s base kit support the 3keys to add are R2 1.75, R3 1.25 and R3 1.5. But there doesn't seem to be a R2 1.75...

I want this... but I hope it's easier and faster for GMK to produce a set if it's blanks? The thought of waiting a year or 2 for blanks is a hard proposal (but seems easy to imagine actually happening with GMK).

I don't have a definite answer, but yes, I'd imagine it would be much easier for them to produce a set of blanks. I'm 90% sure if this set were to run, it wouldn't take as long for GMK to produce as normal sets. Also, this only uses stock colors, so some time should be saved since GMK doesn't have to color match.

Yes, I know that GMK blanks have been ran before, but I wanted this to be the first formal interest check/group buy.
Oh, you mean like https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=100031.0 (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=100031.0) which admittedly was the second formal one. Poking fun at your inability to google "gmk blank geekhack" and crediting former runners with your original april fool's idea aside and despite my snarkiness, which I cannot help right now, I still think this is a great project!

Your IC form is sadly lacking. If my IC for blank caps is any indication a third up to half of in blanks interested people use sub 60% keyboards with the biggest sub group being 40% ortho (think Planck) users. Your kitting does not reflect that and as a 40s user myself would be the reason to not consider joining the GB. Your kitting also does not reflect the two thirds of people preferring mods and alphas to be different colors, again because your IC isn't asking that question. ErgoDox-style users again aren't even considered. If you need inspiration I'd recommend looking at least at the MT3 3277 blank sets or take a look at my kitting, but beware that I am running a uniform profile, so it is a bit easier for me to accommodate for more people.

You are also not rerunning all the popular colors of the previous GBs, which were: CR full, N9 alpha + 2U Spacebar, L9 mods, WS1 alpha, TU2 alpha, DY full.

Please don't read this as a way to tear you down! I think you can do much better and I hope you can use this to build yourself up.

Thank you for your input! I just wanted to clarify a few things--

-Here's a few of the main reasons why I consider this a "formal" IC/GB as opposed to previous blanks groupbuys that have ran:

Your IC form is sadly lacking. If my IC for blank caps is any indication a third up to half of in blanks interested people use sub 60% keyboards with the biggest sub group being 40% ortho (think Planck) users. Your kitting does not reflect that and as a 40s user myself would be the reason to not consider joining the GB.

I think what you're trying to say here is that a third to half of people interested in blanks use sub 60% boards, which I disagree with. TKL, 65%, and 60% are the most popular form-factors in the community right now, with 40% being a minority as one of the lesser-used layouts. Also, while I decided not to add a separate 40s kit, I still added basic 40s support in the base, so while it may not cover ALL 40s boards, it still covers a majority of them.

ErgoDox-style users again aren't even considered.

As I've previously mentioned, I will be adding a ergodox kit, so maybe don't jump to conclusions  ;) Still though, similar to 40s, ergo is a lesser-used layout (even lesser-used than 40s), and the vast majority of GMK sets don't support ergo, so it wouldn't be out of the blue if I weren't to support it.

You are also not rerunning all the popular colors of the previous GBs, which were: CR full, N9 alpha + 2U Spacebar, L9 mods, WS1 alpha, TU2 alpha, DY full.

First, CR is being ran, not sure how you missed that. When it comes to the other colors, there are only so many kits you can run with GMK. Maybe for later rounds I can add more colors, but having that many base kits is incredibly unrealistic with GMK MOQs.

Also, while I decided not to add a separate 40s kit, I still added basic 40s support in the base, so while it may not cover ALL 40s boards, it still covers a majority of them.

I believe that most people interested in blank keycaps do not use "standard" layouts covered by "standard" GMK kits, like the kits proposed in this IC. The need for blanks usually comes from weird layouts that need very specific row/size/legend combinations, not found on custom kits/sets. Hence, removing the "legend" variable in hopes to find keycaps with row/size that fits. Most people even give up sculpted profiles, because they can't even find the correct "row" variable. But if you like sculpted profiles, your hopes lies on blank keycaps.

Personally, I still hope you add Ergodox support in the main kit, or add an Ergodox kit. But again, I do want mods and alphas to be different colors (i.e. CR and WS2), and would most likely have to buy two full kits, and considering the number of kits you would have to add to accommodate non-standard layouts (which are the target buyers for blanks), most of them wouldn't hit GMK's MOQ.

Relying on standard kitting options won't be enough for the target audience of blank keycaps. If you are still serious about this, I think the model linked by rutomoda would be better fitting for a blanks GB.

I understand that, I think where the miscommunication happened is you guys are assuming I'm targeting the 40s/ergo/etc. layouts, in which case a blanks GB similar to the ones that have previously ran would make sense. However, that's not the case. I understand that there is a large market for blanks in those layouts, but the simple truth is that I'm targeting the standard market where 60/65/tkl is the main layouts.

Yes, I can add that in future updates, but for now: everything in the CMYK and RGB mods is r4, meant to replace the shift, alt, and ctrl keys. Macro kits go from r1 to r4, and the base kit is pretty self explanatory.

IIRC, GMK charges 30-40% less for blanks than they do for doubleshot keycaps. This could have changed since my memory is from like 4 years ago a la GMK Mondrian but I think it should still be around that price.

I'm definitely in for a white and CMYK set no matter what though!

Thanks for the ergo kits! :thumb:

However, since the caps are blank, almost all 1u needed for the ergo and some 1,5u keys are already available on the main kit. Maybe we should take advantage of that.

You will only have to add 13 keys to the main kit to support ergo boards, instead of having a separate ergo kit. Otherwise, ergo users will need to buy the main kit and the ergo kit, which will result in buying almost double of the keys actually needed.

If I counted correctly, the keys that need to be added are:
1x 1u R2
2x 1,5u R1
4x 1,5u R2
2x 1,5u R3
4x 2,0u R2

I hadn't thought about it like that. WoB/BoW sets could use these kits as an ergo extension, thanks for pointing this out. I'll probably keep these kits separate from the base kit.

Thanks for adding the extra keys for the ergo clones!!  I'm in for at least one ergo kit!  I was bummed out that I missed the last blank GB.  Any idea what the GB timeline is looking like?

Sometime around the end of the year

Nice! Since they're blanks, what kind of cap thickness are we looking at though? Since it'd be single shot?

I thought I read some people talking about some other runs of GMK blanks that they sound different and were lighter in mass than their double-shot counterparts.

I thought I read some people talking about some other runs of GMK blanks that they sound different and were lighter in mass than their double-shot counterparts.

From what I can tell, the doubleshots and the blanks are the same thickness (or very very close). It looks like on the doubleshots the outer shell is thinner to account for the inner mold adding thickness.

I don't know about the mass and sound difference, but I would imagine that yes, different mass keycaps would affect the sound. I don't have a scale percise enought to weight a blank vs a doubleshot, but it may be something I want to look into in the future.
