I see, thank you :) I don't have/use Insta so I don't generally know what happens there, but it's good to know that the mat samples were approved :) Since I am in the EU, I ordered the mat from Mykeyboard, so I can expect them to be arriving in about a month or two (or at least be on the lookout for a discord ping there). That's fine, nice to hear that all is slowly but surely working out as intended :)

I don't know if it is funny, but I find it remarkable that a keycap set titled Axolotls is taking this absurdly long to move forward (I am completely aware that none of those delays are TyPo.mk's fault), it's almost as if, just like for the axolotl, time has lost some of its meaning :)
Still, it's great that the mats are completed and to be expected at the vendors soonish  :thumb:

That you for continually posting updates here :)

Epbt refuses to undergo metamorphosis!

sample photo from kbdfans
Going off the photo, I feel that the legend color is still more saturated than renders but at this point I don't know if its different enough to warrant delaying the set even further and they may be as good as its going to get. I'll wait to see it with my own eyes before passing judgement

These samples are approved.
I think all the cap colors are PERFECT, the legend color is certainly more saturated than the renders and the chosen Pantone. Iím told the legend color was matched as closely to 217u as epbt can get so weíre going to move into production.

Mats have been shipped to vendors

Keycap colors look great! Shame about the legends...I'm not unhappy with how the final product will turn out (based on your photos) but EPBT's entire sampling process seems totally ridiculous. Looking forward to having fun with all the cute accent colors and novelties when this eventually ships though!

The deeper legend colour looks like it changes the whole vibe of the set from that sample pic, at least to me. Will see how they look in person I guess. At least it's progress.

I asked about potentially another try at this color and to confirm they were matching 217U  and Iíve been told itís as close as they can get so not really much else I can do. I told them it was too dark in the previous round of samples (7 months ago) and itís maybe 1% lighter this time. I guess whatever method epbt is using now makes it difficult to hit these pastels with dyesub.

I will say in daylight the alpha legends look softer pink (less red hued) than the factory photo above but Iím struggling to capture it with my camera (I only have a phone camera atm)
