Attention, All You Beautiful People, Summer Is Quickly Approaching!

- The time of HOT, HUMID, and VIBRANT Sunny days.  And with that heavy heat, comes the foods that never taste as sweet as they do in these coming months. 

- Second, only to the blessing that is watermelon, is the sweet, frosty, and creamy delight known as [Generic Brand] Frozen Yogurt.  The soft, subtle, and satisfying frozen dairy treat.


     Can you feel the rush of cool air as you enter the shop?

     Can you taste the bright, sweet and tangy toppings?

     Can you feel the wallet-shearing-pain of heading to the cashier to weigh your 4.8kg Cup of Perfection that you spent 36 minutes carefully piling as many crushed Kit-Kats onto as possible?

     It's enough to make your sweet tooth tingle right now...

Details of Fro.Yo:

Who Will Be Manufacturing Fro.Yo?

GMK - electronic design gmbh

• High-Quality, Thick, Double Shot ABS Keycaps

Dates:

• (Expected Dates still TBD But Estimates are GB to start 1-2 months) (Looking Like Mid-Late August Is A Solid Date for Us)

Vendors:

• US: Kingly-Keys.xyz

• EU: CandyKeys.com

• Other: TBD

*Numbers:

• Base Kit MOQ -    250 *Edit: 7/11/19 - This Is Subject to Change with the New Kit Arrangements

• All Child Kits MOQ -    100 *Edit: 7/11/19 - This Is Subject to Change with the New Kit Arrangements

*Price:

• TBD (Late July for 2nd Official GMK Quote)




Colors of Fro.Yo:

• [PANTONE Color Samples]


*Spacebar (L9)

-   312 C
-   3395 C
-   2088 C

• [GMK Stock Colors:]


-   L9
-   2B
-   N6


I’m very happy overall as I was slightly worried about the green (3395) being a bit too “washed out” against the base L9 color. Looks to be a lot more contrasted in person :)



Renders:
*Note: Please remember that renders are to help us all get a better sense of the sets real-world look. And just like in real life, differences in light, environment, angles, and temperatures all play into how a set actually is perceived (Whether through a lens or through our own eyes). Please take all renders with that open perception. Further clarification will come if samples are obtainable and more diversity in renders is presented. :)

Latest Ongoing News:

News For 7/11/19:


So last week I recieved the initial full quote for GMK Fro.Yo from GMK.  Im so excited to get to work with them and to get this set out into the world.  But as the kits currently were arranged, It was difficult to justify the price that I had been quoted.

So as suggested by a solid number of people, I've submitted these new kit arrangements to GMK for a second full quote to see how it affects our margins and total kit costs.  It should help us a bit on the money end, and also on the kit satisfaction from the community. Im sorry to have had to throw ISO out of the base.  I really tried to get it in a good spot but we just ended up with too much to offer in the base and the lesser of the layouts had to get its own kit with space bars.  I hope this pleases some of you and that we can get a good product arrangement in the end. 

Now we wait for the (hopefully) Last round of renders/quotes from GMK and take a step back to see where we are at. 

Lets get some Fro.Yo People!!!




Basically All That’s Left in the Timeline is to Coordinate and Finalized Details with GMK then Discus with Proxies to schedule a set, organized Timeframe for the GB!

Maybe some extra “Toppings” on the side (Eyy), but that is a discussion for another time ;)

**A big thank you to everything for the interest, and comments on this set. You guys have helped me so much along the way and I hope everyone is as excited for this set as I am!**

And This is where we are currently at in July!

Things To Do:


- *New*:

- Wait for 2nd Round of Final GMK Renders and Pricing Quote
- Coordinate and Finalized Details with GMK
- Discuss with CandyKeys to schedule a set, organized Time frame for the GB
- Other

Okay, so I know that ePBT was an extremely popular request when I initially launched the IC for GMK Fro.Yo.

After contacting KBDFans for inquiry on the possibility of ePBT manufacturing Fro.Yo, things looked like they could go that direction!

I received MOQ # from Wei and we discussed the colors and Set Arrangements. But the main thing that kept us from going ePBT was there lack of Molds for the 40’s Kit I have.

Extended 2048 had the similar issue of not being able to manufacture the initial 40’s Kit Biip had arranged simply because of there lack of tooling to do so.

Specifically, they do not have molds for Row 3: 1.25u And 1.5u Keys. 

Some may say this is a small detail but as an avid 40’s user, I didn’t want to do this Kit Halfway.

I asked Wei what kind of order quantities we would have to have to fund those 2 new key molds for ePBT, in hopes that it could at least be a structured possibility. 

But after that inquiry Wei has gone silent on me and I don’t think they are interested in manufacturing the set any longer.

That’s just the way it goes sometimes.

Maybe one day my friends!
- Integrate ISO/UK Kit - Done
- Awaiting PANTONE Color Chip Samples for evaluation and finalization Done
- Find A Vendor Done
     • NovelKeys Is pretty booked up for the near foreseeable future, I may just end up running the GB through my own site - King-Keys.xyz.
     • If we go the route of ePBT, then of course KBDFans.cn will be our Vendor.
     • *More concrete details coming soon*
- Listen to community
- More Details on Pricing Estimates
- MORE RENDERS[/size]


Thanks for Taking A Look!

Also GMK seem to be better color matching with RAL, so maybe give those a look at?

It states they are still working on pricing. I can hope it’s reasonable, as these are smaller sets.

I really like this colorway. If ePBT is an option that would definitely be something to look in to imo, but would probably still buy as GMK too.

I Picked the Legends mostly because they were similarly related to what the standard legends are.  At least in my mind.

Total relates to Enter

Double relates to Big which relates to Capital Letters

Extra relates to extra line/Space which relates to Tab.

But Based on the form responses so far, it seems like most would just prefer the stock legends of GMK.  If we go with Stock legends, It Would most likely lower the cost. That might be the better choice honestly since I’m not sure what, if any, other themes would be able to use these legends and make it worthwhile Tooling cost.

Love the name lol

Problem is, people would just call this another Pristine, Minimal, Extended 2048 set.  And offering too many variants just turns into a mad house of community decisiveness and opinions.

Take a look at the 30 page Forum for Oblivion V2 to see what I mean :p

Taking note of this though. You never know!

Yes, even though it's not white, I don't think we need another wob set, I also really prefer having those 3 essential kits rather than a billion different kits for those ortho split backspace 6u spacebar ergo left numpad people. And beside, I just think that the colored mods give the flavor to the set, get that ice cream on the beach on a sunny summer day vibe. But you do you, I'm just not personally interested :)

I emailed Wei Last Night in regards to Discussing the probability of this set being ran with/by ePBT.


I’ll keep you guys posted!  I’m all in for ePBT if it is something they could/would do.

**Note: The 40’s set may have some conflict if we go this route. The R2 1.75u And R3 1.25u Keys are keys that ePBT does not currently have Molds for as far as I know.

Extended 2048 had the same issue arise.

I’m a 40% user myself so this may turn out to be slightly disappointing.

I forgot about that; it does make things tricky. I assume you (and the community) aren't willing to stomach the quality decrease of switching to something like Winmix for 40% compatibility? They seem to be a mixed bag overall, but The Key Company certainly seems to have faith in them.

I'd also gladly take this colorway in MDA or KAT profiles, but it seems like both of those are going to be unobtainable for the near future.

I am a very happy owner of ePBT's 9009 kit, and I would love this own this keycap set should EnjoyPBT manufacture it.

I'll defer to you with the navigation of said R2-1.75u & R3-1.25u keys; good luck with your endeavors.

Look forward to hearing about further news!

I emailed Wei Last Night in regards to Discussing the probability of this set being ran with/by ePBT.


I’ll keep you guys posted!  I’m all in for ePBT if it is something they could/would do.

**Note: The 40’s set may have some conflict if we go this route. The R2 1.75u And R3 1.25u Keys are keys that ePBT does not currently have Molds for as far as I know.

Extended 2048 had the same issue arise.

I’m a 40% user myself so this may turn out to be slightly disappointing.
This could definitely be done in PBT but yes, epbt don't have good 40s support.

I forgot about that; it does make things tricky. I assume you (and the community) aren't willing to stomach the quality decrease of switching to something like Winmix for 40% compatibility? They seem to be a mixed bag overall, but The Key Company certainly seems to have faith in them.

I'd also gladly take this colorway in MDA or KAT profiles, but it seems like both of those are going to be unobtainable for the near future.

Their new kits that were laid out for The Candybar GB might give us some hope in terms of vibrant color replication. And more and more manufacturing experience leads to a higher quality product in most cases. At least for the factories that actually care about those things lol

Have a lot of the recent RAMA Artisans lived up to everyone’s expectations?
