Available kits

CORE

Composed by 146 keycaps, this kit is the starting point for everyone, and provides great coverage for
many boards including Nemo, Uniqeyís C70,  Leopoldís FC660 & FC980, TADA68, 96-key layouts, as
well as winkeyless boards. All of them in both ANSI and ISO layouts. The Core kit already comes
with  2.25U, and 1.75U SHIFT keys. One 7.00U and two 6.00U spacebars (one with a centered
stem and the other one with an off-centered one) have also been included. The set will come with a
custom packaging.







40s

This add-on kit covers 40% keyboard layouts and some 60% such as the GK64, Minorca, Sebright, JD40, and
Planck (both in MIT and GRID layout). 40s comes with many accent keys as well as 1.00U
and 2.00U convex keycaps.




MICONS

This add-on kit features a minimalistic set of doubleshot modifiers designed by MiTo. It provides enough keycaps
to cover 60% and 65% (including the C70) boards both in ANSI and ISO layouts.




GEOMETRIES

This kit features a set of geometric designs with impossible geometries. The set also includes
a Massdrop and Uniqey keycap.




ERGODOX

The Ergodox kit provides a set of blank keycaps that allow you to cover
and Ergodox layout. The kit includes six R2/3 2.00U keycaps.




SPACEBARS

This kit consists of a set of dark grey spacebars including 1.00U and 2.00U convex keycaps; R4 1.25U,
1.75U, 2.25U and 2.75U keycaps, 6.00U off-center and center stem, plus 6.25U and 7.00U spacebars.

Frequent Asked Questions


Quote
Does [insert kit] include [insert keycap]?

All kits include only the keys pictured, with a visual aid for its keysize.




Quote
Does the core kit include scooped F & J keys?

Yes, it includes both scooped and barred F & J keycaps.



Quote
How do I fill my keyboard?

Youíll need a Core kit, and it is essential to cover any layouts. For most keyboards, such as Nemo,
Tokyo60, Anne Pro, Pok3r, Uniqey C70, Leopold FC660M, Duck Wiper, Tada68, Percent CanÝe,
Duck Octagon, Drevo 84, Percent SkÝg, Masterkeys Pro S, TX-CP, Leopold FC980M, Cherry G80-1813,
Kira, RS96, or a Duck Lightsaver, this is the only kit that youíll need. There are a couple exceptions:

  • Ergodox users will just need the Ergodox kit
  • GK64, Minorca, Sebright, and Planck users will need to add a 40s kit.
  • Split spacebar keyboards (Banana60, VE.A) should grab either the spacebar kit or the 40s kit.

Quote
Which keyboards can I cover with Micons?

You can cover the modifier keys of most 60% and 65% including Nemo, Tokyo60, Tada68, or even Uniqey C70.



Quote
Is this keyset fully compatible with the Corsair Strafe, Fnatic Gear Rush, or Razerís keyboards?

No. These keyboards have a non-standard bottom row with 6.50U spacebar.



Quote
Is this keyset fully compatible with the Mistel Barocco 60%, Filco Minila, or Filco Minila Air?
Can you add a 3U & 4U spacebars to the spacebars kit?

No. These keyboards use 3.00U, 3.25U, or 4.00U spacebars and arenít that common.
It would require GMK to make new molds to cover those three boards.



Quote
Do the keys support backlighting?

No. These keycaps do not support backlighting as they are made out of two different opaque plastics.
However, you can get with them an awesome underglow effect.

Quote
Why no ISO kit?

The base kit comes with Hiragana and Latin legends, and unless new molds are made, it would break the set's aesthetic.

There are no plans to include a Nordic and German kit.



Quote
Which vendor do you plan to use for Serikaís Group Buy?

Massdrop. They have recently delivered well over 2000 Nautilus orders, shipping them on time, and with
marginal (to none) issues. On top of that, they are working hard to give better and more transparent
post-drop updates
.



Quote
How much will it cost?

Prices should be similar to previous GMK sets such as Nautilus, Yuri, or Laser.



Quote
When will I be able to get this set?

It depends on you.



Quote
Iím concerned about the final colors, how will you ensure that theyíll be the close to the renders?

GMK and I are taking extra steps to make sure that everything goes right, as we know that yellow is a
tricky color and getting the perfect colors will be super important for this set. This is why GMK and I have
been using a Pantone and RAL color chart to define which custom colors are going to be used. Samples are on my
way and weíll do as many takes as needed to get the perfect colors.



Quote
Why is the 40s kit an add-on and not a part of the core?

A separate add-on kit allows me to get a better layout coverage and accent keys while keeping the core
kitís price down.



Quote
$[insert price] for ABS? No way Iím paying for that.

There are many high-quality product made in ABS that people love such as LEGO, or GMK keycaps. GMK
makes thick, doubleshot keycaps (their legends are sharp and will never fade). If you havenít tried these
keycaps before: they get through an excellent quality control, their legends are consistent, they are perfect
for long typing sessions, and they sound fantastic.



Quote
Can you add the GMK Nautilus style ergodox keys with the doubleshot legends?

Despite of Nautilusí hype and how great was having doubleshot legends on an ergodox, some people were
discouraged by the first tier price point and decided not to get one.

For Serika, Iíd prefer to keep it as it is for now.



Quote
Are there any story behind the keycap color way and the novelties?

In August 2016, just after The Amazing Chocolatierís drop ended, I started working on two new sets. One of
those was Nautilus, which was finished first, and the other one was an unnamed set that later became Serika.

While working on Nautilus, I had something very clear: I wanted to work on a less flashy and more subtle
color way but without falling into the ďboringĒ tag. I also wanted to make a set were yellow was the main
actor and not just an accent (like in Chocolatier or Nautilus). For the alphas, I had obviously go for
something lighter, so I opted for a white (with a tint of beige). And thatís how the colorway was decided.

Fast forward to Novemeber 2017, just before Nautilus started shipping, I started working again on the set.
There were two unfinished issues: its name and the novelties. The name issue was solved quite fast.
Like many others on this community Iím also interested in space exploration (Godspeed, and Yuri), so I
paid an homage to the Space Brotherís manga and named the set after fictional astronaut Itou Serika.
As for the novelties, unlike previous sets, I wanted to keep them simple and more abstract, so I went for
something that I was already interested in: impossible geometric figures, such as the Penrose triangle.



Quote
Could you split the keycaps in more kits?

No, GMK has a 150 minimum order quantity for any purchase order (250 if you use custom colors), and
their prices scale down quite well the more sets are sold. This is the reason why all GMK sets have a big
base kit that covers most layouts, as it makes things easier for everyone and minimizes the risk of not
having your keyboard layout covered.



Quote
Who did the renders?

Me.

I thought this was just extended GMK Heavy Industry (From RAMA), but the mod colors are reversed!

I like yellow a lot, but I have SO MANY keysets...

Maybe.

I'm definitely going to buy like 3 of the novelty kits. I'm getting a penrose triangle tattoo soon.

The accent color for this keyset is dark grey,and since I don't want to add more keycpas spacebars kit, that would require a second spacebar kit.

Do people really need that many options for navigation keys? I think offering one layout for 75/65% coverage on home end and page keys is enough. That's 3 keys you could eliminate or repurpose. With prices rising and exchange rate failing every bit helps

That's completely fair. This set is on the opposite side of Chocolatier or Nautilus, which are very fancy and they could even be considered as flashy sets, so for many it will be under the boring side, which many people like too! Maybe we could spice those alphas adding some extra kit  ;)

Just because he hasn't taken any suggestions thus far doesn't mean he's not taking suggestions.  If someone comes up with one that's valid for his design, I'm sure that he'll take it.  Many are just used to designers catering to the community rather than bringing a strong design to the community.  And this one is pretty strong as is- the benefit of experience.

Lol. The suggestions so far were: yellow spacebars, icon mods, pad printing, and my comment on all the nav keys.

Pad printing is a horrible idea and should be dismissed. Icon mods are not that popular and shouldn't be automatically incorporated because one person asked for it.. that's a huge change to the overall set. Spacebars are rarely offered in modifier color because it looks funny. They're usually alpha color, and accent color for good reason.

Just because I did a lot of work before posting anything and have a clear idea of what I'd want to do doesn't mean that I'm not caring about the feedback.

For instance, before starting the thread on Geekhack, I did adjustments on two kits (40s and Ergodox) based on some reasonable suggestions.

Also, you should read between lines to this posts I've made:

Quote
I'd prefer to avoid pad printing at all costs and just have everything doubleshot.

Means: instead of using pad printing legends for a let's say Heisei kit, I'd prefer to do doubleshot keycaps.

Quote
The only way I'd offer any icon mods would be on an add-on kit for blocknet.

Means: While preparing the IC, I considered adding Blocknet to the set, but I need to see if there's enough interest on this set to justify its addition.

I wrote that because I want to make sure that nothing here is rushed and everything can be made.

Please add R1 backspace key. Its seems every set skips that key except the sets jchan offer on his site.

Also your 40's kit add on should be a option for every future GMK set,its perfect and 40 percent keyboards are not as rare as they used to be.

Love the novelties and would really like to see more abstract/geometric novelties in the future!

Yellow isn't really my thing but as usual this is excellent work. Good luck!

Your presentation is top notch and renderings are sublime. Love the novelties in this set.

The more I look at it, the more I like it. I hope this set happens. It might mix and match well with grey alphas too?

But I always throw away my GMK boxes to save space...now I can't? Hmm. :mad:

I love this, and would be thrilled if those geometric novelties made it in. Not enough yellow love. =)

I'm glad that there's enough interest for the novelties. I'd like to keep the kit as small as possible and avoid making lots of new legends, but I'll consider adding more to the kit.


Please add R1 backspace key. Its seems every set skips that key except the sets jchan offer on his site.

Most people that split the backspace go with the R2 1.5U backspace. I don't think a lot of people would use them.

What about ISO and JIS users? It's also a useful key for people with separate numpads.

What about ISO and JIS users?

All of the ISO layouts use a 2.00U spacebar.  As for JIS, we would still need some extra caps (on the bottom row and one on the 4th row) to properly cover that layout.


It's also a useful key for people with separate numpads.

That wouldn't help to properly cover standalone numpads. You'd need  to add to that a R1 1.00U Tab, R1 1.00U =, an extra R1 1.00U ESC (Both in yellow and grey, to keep consistency) as well as a R4 1.00U. 00.


Tha being said, if I get the greenlight to add "Blocknet" AKA Micons there would be some room for that key on the kit.
