Modern Beige should ship this week. They are in the process of being packaged.

I'm going to try to ship them out as soon as possible, but I'm getting boxes made that might delay this. I have to figure out if I can get the boxes done in time.

I'll show progress of both the sets and boxes as soon as I can.

Woo Hype!

This is just a sample we got that we have been working on before we saw the Carbon Packaging. It's not quite finished yet. We are still working on some of the toolings.

Thanks to effectiveduck, the layout will go after this http://www.keyboard-layout-editor.com/#/gists/dd3d4e27c0b63c10fea11c6f1645f311

I'm glad I found this thread; I just ordered the Japanese Red/Black for a new Champagne Vortex case build. Now I'm really trying hard not to order the Japanese Purple/Cyan! This new hobby will be the death of my wallet!

I concur. Perhaps blow some air into it to puff it up a smidge for protection. :)

... I'm just being impatient. I'd be sad if they arrived scratched up.  I've heard things about GMK producing keys that are rigid (possibly the wrong word) enough that they will damage each other in poor packaging.

I appreciate the care that you put into this.

Hey guys, highly sorry about the lack of updates this past week. We were away for the weekend due to Veteran's Day. As for the package, it should have arrived last Thursday or Friday, but it's still on its way to us. We'll give another update sometime this week regarding any new information.

whats funny about originative is.
even if they put declare $10, they still put the invoice with real price in the package,
so if custom check the package you still have to pay the custom fees cause they notice the invoice and real price of the package (happen to me twice)  :))

If that happened, I'll just let the custom have the keyset. Ain't gonna pay for it. The fees is going to be stupid for sure.

We're still continuing the shipping process. People who ordered should be getting their tracking info soon!

We'll also have pictures of the other sets up.

This is looking good.

I hope twisted keycaps won't ruin these sets. Seems the picture has a few (CapsLock , Tab and the Japan flag 1u).

Great quality as expected. As of now, I can't tell if I prefer the thicker font or not compared to Ivan's designs. Also, looks like all the secondary/side legends on the JP set made it through as per the mockups which is awesome.

Ooh, looks nice.

Though a Japanese set on a Korean board just feels so wrong to me.

Ordering a GB keyset and getting it two months later would be the fastest keyset GB ever!
