Kitting will need to be modified for sure, a good minimal base should at the very least support tsangan and super basic 65/75, your base will support only the most oem of keyboards

iso base pls

This. Needing to buy 2 kits just for those 1.5u bottom row keys and the 1.75 shift is unfortunate. Those are pretty standard for all 65/75.

Colorway is really cute though, wouldn't mind this being my first triple shot set

Thank you so much for the feedback!! As for the kitting, our initial thought is that there are still some audience who only use one very standard TKL/Full size, and forcing them to buy more mods is unnecessarily costly for them. The price will reflect the number of key caps though, we will try to make the price for a base pro + mod plus kits same as the "ideal" base you mentioned. If that makes sense lol.

Thanks a lot for the input!! As I mentioned above, we will try to justify this kitting plan by the pricing, like base pro + mod plus would be very close the more supportive bigger base.

Thanks for the suggestion, but our initial thought is to cater for the group of people who only use a standard TKL, and they can get the set with lower price.

Are you going to offer any sort of all-in-one pricing discount, similar to what Domikey does for its SA sets?

Since you already have R4 End in the pro mods kit, could you swap out the one in the Numpad kit for a Tab instead? Thatís a rather typical key for stand-alone Numpads. Also not sure if Shift is actually the best choice there: maybe Fn or Equals?

Other kitting notes:

  • In the spacebar kit, a 1.75u bar is rarely used by itself.
    • Typically it shows up in pairs when it exists at all.  Is there some specialty board that uses this?  Because that's typically a 40% thing, which this kitting doesn't support in general.
  • I would go ahead and include a 1.25u Shift in ISO.
    • That's currently in the pro mods kit.  The ISO kit really does need that shift key, or it means that every ISO user must buy the pro mods, which isn't a great approach.
  • Likewise, ISO is missing R1 backslash-pipe (\|), which is currently on R2.
    • You can optionally keep the R2 copy (for US ISO support) or ditch it.
  • You have 1.5u Alt Gr in the pro mods kit, but 1.25u Alt Gr is nowhere to be found.  Couple possibilities for this:
    • One might be to just go ahead and force the righthand Alt in your base kit to be Alt Gr.
    • The other would be to put 1.25u Alt Gr in the ISO kit.
  • If you're going to bother with an Alt Gr key at all, you might as well put the broken bar in the tertiary legend of the UK-ISO backtick-negation key (`¨¶).
  • You have mod tilde in the pro mods kit, but not mod 1.5u backslash.  That's pretty popular for 60% boards in particular.
  • You're so close to having this kitting work well for Ortho.  Suggested 1u additions to make that work:
    • R3 Escape in accent color for the Alt Color kit
    • R3 Out in mod color for Pro Mods (or provide both R3 Tab and Escape in mod color)
    • R2 Fn/Meta/Cmd (or both Tab and Escape, again)
    • R2 Enter
    • R2 Quote-doublequote (mod color)
    • R1 Enter
  • If you need to make some room for other keys, you could drop R3 Home, which is super rare.

Set is really interesting to be honest, it's good to see more custom OEM sets in the market. The colorway definitely isn't for me because I mainly like more bland sets, but this is cool, it reminds me of cotton candy. GLWIC!

Not sure about the colourway but it's good to see a manu expanding their services so I hope this goes well.

(As an aside I'm actually digging the brown/white/yellow sample set)

Yeah but if you call it cherry then people can't complain about it being 0.00002mm higher like some manufacturers who sell cherry profile.

Or IFK who makes OEM and calls it cherry.

Other than the kitting feedback nopun has already provided, please render your kits in image dimensions that show off the designs. You worked hard on the novelties designs, so why require customers to use a magnifying glass to see your cool designs? Please just put each kit on its own render image and zoom in so the keys fill most of the image.

Cherry profile is called cherry because it was originally made by the company cherry. Now, the only manu that owns the molds to "true" cherry profile is GMK. All other keycap manus that sell "cherry" profile just mimic it to as close as possible, it is very clear that in the renders and the samples that they were mimic-ing cherry profile. This is muuuuuuuch closer to cherry than oem (including the different variations), so it wouldn't be accurate to say that this is oem. Same goes for ifk. I would just personally say that what the renders and samples show is not what comes to mind when someone says oem profile.

The same argument can be made with SA caps, are all cheap sa marketed caps available that aren't SP oem? Because the original molds for SA are owned by SP.

I'm sure something is lost in translations, this does not look like OEM profile and is almost definitely cherry profile.

你这个是原厂高度,翻译过来是cherry高度,oem是另一种高度。

Kitting pictures have been slightly updated. Also there was a miscommunication - the profile should be Cherry not OEM. Sorry about the confusion!!
The OEM in the renders are actually referring to Original Equipment Manufacturer, not the profile. That was the reason for this miscommunication. :-[

Nice colorways. How long has Domikey been doing triple-shot cherry profile? I thought they were SA only. Like Havattack said, it would be nice to have more alternatives to GMK.

Probably Domikey x iNKY Silent Sea Cherry Profile Keycaps. You can find an IC thread for this here on GH.

I am so in! Any new competition against GMK is always very very welcome.


Also, ngl, I like that grey/yellow/white set a lot more than your IC set. Is that buyable anywhere?
