STORY

Hi, I'm Masje, a leekbros enjoyer. This is a keycap set I designed in collaboration with TheBloodyez, a good friend and talented keyboard designer. Check out QFRL
We hope to make an affordable, classic Arabic keycap set inspired by Cherry G80 sublegends, so, naturally we chose to go with dyesub PBT with JC Studio(aka Leekbros)
At the same time, we hope to create an inclusive base set that will cover most layouts. Please refer to our specs for detailed kitting information!
We will be looking into different-colored sublegends, so do please fill out the IC form to let us know!

Leek brothers have been doing some great stuff for the price and this is another example.

Hopefully this would reach 200MOQ cause that price is very nice (+ quick timelines are always a good thing)

I'm in because UK keys in base.

Any option of a pink sublegends option? Pink is objectively the cutest and friendliest colour.

I swear I saw text only mods in yesterday's render. honestly I wouldn't mind if you kept them text only, there's plenty of other icon+text sets around to mix and match, this would have been a nice variation.

Same. Aesthetically I strongly prefer -just- text or all icons, but the mix never feels as crisp.
