wait i don’t understand what’s the problem with having zhuyin and the actual characters? like genuinely asking. also it’s traditional

edit: hold on the render says 新年快樂 but the kitting says 春节快乐?? should probably sort that out. not only is it a difference of traditional vs simplified, it also means different things (same festival but different wording) happy new year vs happy spring festival

also since this is a cny themed keycap set, do consider adding 倒福 (character ‘fu’ upside down) as a novelty instead of just 囍. oranges, red packets, lion dance, firecracker, etc also come to mind

春節 is another way of saying CNY/LNY so it wouldn't be the biggest problem if 春節 was used instead of 春节.
However I find Zhuyin sublegend with 春节快乐 offensive to some degree. Zhuyin is mainly used by Taiwanese, who use traditional Chinese character.

I also agree with your idea of 倒福. It is definitely something that should be in a lunar new year themed set

Also, adding Fai Chun to the deskmat seems better than just a plain red mat.
