KAM Ocean Front





Hello guys, this is my first set of keycaps called Ocean Front in KAM profile.

The set is based on a beach in the mediterranean sea, to really capture that sunny summer vibe!

You can go true to nature with shiny High Gloss water caps, and a rough textured beach or you can go uniform with a full textured / matte set for a nice typing experience.
You buy each set individually, so if you're not sure wich one is best for you, you can buy an extra water set for not that much extra :)

I tried some different things with the set like multi-keycaps modifiers, different textures. and enough novelties to cover a macropad, or rearrange your own pattern with the shells.



The kits are split into 3 parts.

(kit A) = Sand ( Always Matte / Textured )
(kit B) = Water (High Gloss / Smooth)
(kit C) = Water ( Matte / Textured )

this way one can mix and match to his own liking.

So for a full set you Buy either A + B ( Sand Matte + Glossy Water) or A + C (Sand Matte + Matte Water). Or every set if you want a full set with both the textured matte water caps and smooth glossy water caps ( A+B+C ).


(kit A) =  Always Matte / Textured


(kit B) High Gloss / Smooth


(kit C)  Matte / Textured

interesting concept matte vs gloss.... how is this achieved? abs vs pbt? or some kind of coating on the caps?

It's a smooth PBT, while the matte/textured is a normal PBT. I have no clue how they do it haha.

Those are Renders, I really have to thank lizcuits once again for the awesome job!

This might be a long shot, but would you be willing to do a render for a think 6.5 cream color?

I got one of those in the last group buy and i've been stressing about which caps to put. This might just be the one set to do it.

I don’t have that model, but I do have a drop alt layout in some older renders for an idea?

is it just me or are a lot of KAM GB sub-options so confusing?
what's happened to the usual one base, one novelty, one 40s, one spacebar kit etc?

This is a bit of an odd GB, since we offer both glossy(smooth high gloss) and matte (textured) water caps. to keep it as cheap as possible for everyone we split up the sets in 3 parts (A,B,C)

Yeah sorry for that, you can compensate for those with the code, hack & FN from TKL. or the Sand Novelties if you don't mind the icons :)

Keyreative has announced they're switching from dye-sub to double shot for their KAT sets following their recent QC problems, will KAM be affected by this? (ie turning double shot)

Great question,

KAM is not affected by this change, and will remain reverse dye-sub. Also not all KAT sets will be switched to doubleshot. But moving forward they would be directing reverse-dyesub predominant designs with standard legends to doubleshot since doubleshot is way more consistent. Customs legends, sublegend designs and regular dark legends on light keycaps will remain dye-sub.

KAM is great for reverse dye-sub since it's uniform in all directions.
I hope this clarifies the matter, if you have any further questions please let me know :)

Great job and great look, can't wait!!
But so finally no need of the sand novelties to make it fit on the Gmmk Pro? Or this is taking into account you'll try to add the 3x 1u? Thanks again!

I have a question out to add it on my costs, I think it will be no problem, but nothing confirmed yet. (1u Alt Pantone 7508 in text mods, and 1u Bouy Pantone 7508 in Icon mods)

Thanks for the feedback, I looked up the Ave, but apparently it's a GB that didn't go too well. (not sure anyone got any) Your keys would have looked lovely on it though.
