[IC] GMK Dark
« on: Wed, 17 April 2019, 15:41:26 »
Introducing GMK Dark,
a simple two-tone set with high compatibility for many keyboard layouts and existing GMK keysets






It's not quite blanks, but resembles some more classic OEM colorways with Black legends on a Dark Grey cap
GMK Dark is compatible with many existing GMK sets that use either N9 (dark grey) as a base color or CR (black) for legend color.
This set will not come with any colored accent or modifier keycaps,
but below are some examples of how GMK Dark will look with alphas, mods, and accents from other GMK keysets


thank you to pngu for the free render service!



GMK Dark alphas with Sky Dolch mods and accents accents


GMK Dark alphas with Violet Tendencies mods


GMK Dark with Terminal alphas


GMK Dark alphas with Terminal mods and accents


GMK Dark alphas and mods with Skidata accents


GMK Dark alphas with Skidata mods



Included keycaps



  • Base Kit will have text-only mods with Icon-only mods available in a separate kit
  • Bottom Row icons have been split out into a separate kit. yes, i know the Alt icons are upside down, but thats the best you can do in KLE -please ignore
  • Non-Standard kit has Icon mods for the most common layouts i could find. I will need input on this kit, as i do not own or regularly use an ortho/40/other weird layout
  • yes, ISO is its own kit.

my goal is to provide the most compatibility for the lowest price. imo, these kits are already very full, so i will consider removing keys in order to reduce price. if you have caps you would like added, please provide your explanation or an example of the layout that is not covered by the kits shown above.

TO DO:
  • pricing and renders from GMK

Honestly I want the reverse.

GMK Doom got cucked and then nothing happened with donutcat's thing.

This will take 2nd place if it actually makes GB/MOQ tho :p

Kinda agree. Although doom and GMK Exent we’re almost identical barring a few accent keys and compatibility.

Still sad Doom didn’t make MOQ

I'm not opposed to offering a spacebar kit if there is enough demand for it. i dont want to dilute the gb with too many kits, though. will depend on the vendor i guess

Good people, please head over to the GMK Blanks group buy, you can get your N9 convex spacebars (and lots of other caps) there on the cheap! We actually need help bringing them closer (if not over) the MOQ of 150... Thanks!

I am also in that gb, and i would like it to be as successful as possible. however, it only looks like 1u and 2u N9 spacebars will hit moq without a bunch of help.

i would also point out that many recent sets like Terminal and Skiidata have done 40% kits or spacebar kits in N9, which should have some availability in the second-hand market. that being said, i am still open to adding a spacebar kit for non-standard layouts

i will likely have a poll for this at some point

I love the ePBT version, and this is something I might be down for... kinda depends on pricing, but I imagine with only two colors, it could be a winner. I would like to see it sold with all the compatibility personally to drive down full kit cost, as I tend to go all in on a set for compatibility purposes.
