Good to see this has started up, I'm in for the Rama cap!

Somewhat disappointed that those of us with just R1 won't be able to join the artisan raffles, but at least that will prevent me from spending even more money on artisans :))

We have past 1/3 of the 500 MOQ for the base kit, the Novelty kit has past the 150 MOQ, the Rama cap has past the 100 MOQ.
This only after the first day, pretty impressive although the communities kit and Latin alphas need some love.

It is if you can join, we were at the Leeds meetup this weekend so I guess they forgot to close the GB.
Your entry counts.

So, the GB is closed with the most vendors.
I'm finalizing the numbers and will place the P.O. to GMK ASAP.
Final numbers will be released once the P.O. is placed.
We have past 1k bases and 500 novelties. Really impressive.
Thank you all who has joined the GB!

I remember you, kingnestea, mentioning somewhere (not sure where that was..) that there might be an added green ISO enter, when 1000 sets are reached. Is this something I made up in my mind somehow or is that true and there is a possibility for that? :)

Yes, I said that in my IC, but since the P.O. needs to be placed ASAP before the sh*t tons of GBs are ending, I'll have to communicate with GMK after the P.O. and see what is the possibility.
And please don't kill me if we can't add the green ISO enter..we didn't reach 1k with GB, it's with vendor extras. :))

We have a small issue of the compass arrows, the characters are not feasible with double shot.
I'm thinking about double shot for the arrows and UV-printing for the characters.
If anyone have experience with GMK UV-printing, please advice.
much appreciated.

The 東南西北 arrows are what drew me to this set. Oof. As long as UV-printing provides decent results, I will be happy. Just don't cancel those characters on the arrows.

For the moment, I think I'll go for the UV printed characters unless I hear differently...
GMK royal typewritter and all those cyrillic sets have UV printed legends on the alphas and I haven't really heard any complain about those.
A friend of mine has been using his royal typewritter set as a daily driver for over a year, and he has even cleaned the set 3 times with soap, the caps already have shine on them, but no single issue with the UV printed legends.

Ignore his giant foot please...

----------------------------------------------

More detailed pictures of the UV-printed legends after being his daily driver for over a year, I think it is staying really strong.

There is no way I'll cancel those, not even another font.
GMK suggested to use another font, but I don't think it will solve the problem due to the nature that 3 of 4 characters are too complicated.
I tried to adjust the artwork, but it seems impossible to keep the vibe of these characters and being compliance with the GMK double shot guideline.

kinda bum about this. I'm sure it will be fine, but from the sample photos; my biggest concern is the finish. It has a glossy look to it compare to the rest of the caps.

Bumping the above. I've got to figure out how to get the shipping changes from Novely keys also since I've literally sold my house and moved by the time this thing comes out now.

Send a support ticket on our site to ask for an address change.


No new updates from GMK. Still scheduled for production.

In the WoB Hiragana post from mgsickler, even the shipment faces delays from Germany to the USA. Add in delays for shipments from NK to us, June is plausible for it in our hands.

Guys,

Just a quick update that the estimated production of Camping r2 is postponed to mid/end April due to the pandemic.
This is no fun, but please hold on, we're almost there.

Not sure if it's likely to happen because hiragana is in the base kit and the latin alphas are extras considering he bought the base kit, it won't make sense to have 2 sets of hiragana.

Whoops, the quote was completely accidental. It's fixed now. I was more hoping for a r1 owner who was looking to trade.

Nope, just base and novelties. Label was created Tuesday and the first update was Friday, just like mgsickler mentioned it would for non RAMA. But yea, little confusing since it was received but not accepted, like its just sitting waiting to be scanned in or something. Here's hoping its not lost.
