[GB] GMK Wavez Group buy 100% completed
« on: Sun, 31 March 2019, 21:56:02 »


Disclaimer :

If you guys have any issues with your set (bad escape key for exemple), you have to contact the proxy where you bought the set, and send a picture of your problem.


Hi everyone, It's Enjoy', I'm really proud to announce that the Group buy for GMK Wavez is live and it's not an april fool !
The group buy will be live the 1st april to 1st May ! :thumb:

PROXIES



KITS :

Base kit - $119.99 - MOQ of 250 : Reached



Kobe kit - $64.99 - MOQ of 100 : 40/100



Novelty kit - $59.99 - MOQ of 150 : MOQ Reached



Spacebars kit - $27.99 - MOQ of 100 : MOQ reached



Numpad kit - $36.99 - MOQ of 100 : MOQ Reached



Rama Keycap with glow enamel - $41.99 - MOQ of 50 : MOQ Reached



Collabs :

Apart from these kits, I also managed to collab with people to make some nice add-ons to this set. (NOT AVALIABLE ANYMORE)

- I collabed with 3 artisans makers for this set since some of you guys probably love resin, the makers are the following :

- Keyforge
: Wavez Shishi and Orochi


- Alpha keycaps : Wavelenght Keypora


- CYSM : Thomas and Play button in 2 colorways !


Note that only people who will join the GB will have access to the raffles ! Everything you need to know about the raffles including the links to enter them will be on each product page of each proxy !


Renders :

Some renders to show the possibilities you have with all kits ! :thumb:

















And a render of the packaging made by Biip, who also did the awsome novelties for this set !



Colors used for this set are RAL Colors : RAL 6038(legends and accents), RAL 5020 (alphas) , RAL 5008(modifiers), NOTE that RAL colors can be adjusted to match the set perfectly ! (like bento did for exemple)  :thumb:
I thought it was irrelevant to communicate them since they will be changed and optimized for the set but here you go.


Finally I'd like to thank everyone of you guys, the journey was long but we're finally there, I'm so excited for this Group buy and I'm sincerly greatfull of your support, you guys are amazing and without you, none of this would be possible.

Thank you sincerly from the bottom of my heart, writting that GB post makes me emotionnal, If one day someone would have told me that I'll be doing such a thing I would have laugh to him... but now it's finally real.

Thank you to everyone, Proxies, Artisans makers, closed friends, and you guys, thank you so much.

Special thanks to :

- Biip (#BroLove)
- Otanishock (#BroLove2)
- Toastyparty
- Oldcat
- Tesletron
- Jinnnxxu
- Visionnaire
- Janglad
- Candykeys

- Dailyclack
- Zfrontier

Hi guys, sorry for the long wait but here are the final numbers for GMK Wavez  :thumb:

Numpad : 137 (166)/100

Rama keycap : 104 (123)/100


I guess that this concludes the Groupbuy, I sincerly didnt expect that you guys will get soooooo many kits !
I’m really proud and happy about this groupbuy, I couldnt really ask for more, your support was really Insane and I can’t wait to share the samples when I’ll recieve them, aswell as interact with you guys again.

As you can clearly see a lot of novelty kit were sold, for me they’re really essentials for the set, you guys really love them and without my dear friend Biip this set would have been way different ! So thank you brother  :p

I think we also can thank GMK for letting kobe be a real thing even if it didnt pass MOQ, this is really kind from them, they didnt have to do it but its a really nice thing that they did.

Ill post update later on about the deskmat as soon as the proto will be in my hands !

I might say it a bit too much but thank you again guys, thank you for making this set a success, you are the best !  :cool:

Finally!

Congrats on your set and your successful IC. I think it won't be hard to reach MOQ, even with all the good sets coming this month.

Waiting for Candykeys to list it now!

That render with the green base keyboard killed me.

In on day one.

Also is that render using the same green color?

Sorry man but the MOQ for the PVD is different than the other rama cap, and when I see the one from bento who struggled... I thought it wasnt the best move to propose it :(
thanks for your support though

I was about to ask the same thing.

Already bit on a Base, Novelties, and Spacebar pack. Might add more later. Was it announced what would happen as we hit higher sales levels than the MOC? 500, 750, 1000 (Wishful thinking)

For colors, I'll be using RAL Colors for better results, for the green it will be RAL 6038 Luminous green. for the other colors since there is a TON of different shades that look the same, I'll do a LOT of test to figure out what colors will be the best but I can already give you guys what colors I'm looking  forward to but It can be different depending on how it will be on a keycap...

If we reach a nice MOQ, I have something really nice planned for you guys, I'll announce it later on ;)

Are the renders done with RAL 6038?

RAL 6038 is also similar to Pantone 802C which is a Neon-ish green but not as vibrant as these renders.

What happens if I got super lucky and got both spots, but I only want to buy either, would this get me banned?:(

I'd throw money at you but Candykeys is taking their sweet time... Also god I hope the novelties aren't like 75€ or something equally dumb
MOQ means Minimum Order Quantity. You either reach it or you don't, there's no "pushing for higher MOQ", just pushing for more orders.

I was honestly more curious as to the other deep shades of green that would be used in the alphas and mods. That's kind of a difficult color to nail without going over or under on the contrast like what happened with Solarized Dark or Necro.

Yeah, your GB pages (Bento, this one etc.) are looking pretty great  :thumb:  Pricing is fine, I was referring to e.g. Metropolis novelties being 40% more expensive in EU than USA which is what turned me away from buying that kit.
MOQ means Minimum Order Quantity. You either reach it or you don't, there's no "pushing for higher MOQ", just pushing for more orders.
