Interest Checks / Re: [IC] GMK Love Detective - Detective is IN

i like this but it has the potential to be a color matching disaster. make sure you buy PLASTIC color chips to verify your color choices ahead of the GB, which you can then send to GMK. the $100 expense now will save you a lot of grief down the line.

Okay, so. The similarity with GMK Blue Samurai is undeniable. I like your legends/accent color and theme more, but I worry that you’ll have trouble meeting MOQ when Blue Samurai is either available in-stock or pre-order on Drop… basically all the time. Have you considered this may be an issue?

The Blue Samurai has a completely different alphas color and accents. While it uses blue and gold combo, this set uses a very dark teal and light beige/sand combo. I am using a color corrected monitor.
So I dont this this should be an issue.

Ignoring that “completely different” is a significant overstatement, I think you misunderstand what I mean. The general population is going to look at the two and see the similarity, regardless of what you see on your color-corrected monitor. And they will inevitably compare their options. It would be wise to consider that your sales may be impacted by this similar set that is readily available.

Dont get me wrong. I was just trying to explain the color are different enough. The general sentiment / feedback will come from the Interest Check form. This will help us determine the MOQ which we can easily achieve. It will take a lot of time to actually determine the amount of interest. At the end we should have the info required to go through!
I hope I could explain properly this time.

ALL KITS WILL BE MADE (as will the deskmats and THOK knobs)!

Updated numbers brought us to 90% of MOQ, and Vala Supply has guaranteed that they'll be buying at least 10% in extras - so we are now guaranteed to hit MOQ on the keyset. Deskmats and THOK knobs will also be made, as the knob MOQ is being reduced. The only thing not yet guaranteed is the Asero - discussions there are ongoing.

Thank you all for your support so far 💙
If you were on the fence about joining the group buy, or know someone who is...now's the time to jump in! Just a few days left to join!

Keyboard Keycaps / Re: Cylindrical vs spherical profiles

I prefer sculpted profiles for SA and MT3. Flat profile keyboards are okay in a pinch, but I like the curvature provided by the different row heights.

A quick heads up, ePBT has placed a 50 moq on all child kits for all sets moving forward (as far as we know) so you might want to remove some of the doubled-up kits (such as 40s and norde).

Thanks for the headups. I have not yet heard back from them or kbdfans. If thats the case / applies to this set, then I would make the necessary changes.
