[GB] GMK Denim
« on: Fri, 07 June 2019, 10:36:09 »
Hello everyone and welcome to GMK Denim GB!

As the name states GMK Denim features Denim theme which explains the colorway. Also if i think about Denim - then Jeans is the first thing which comes into my mind. I personally have never seen Jeans without leather patches and manufacturers logotypes. Thus GMK Denim does feature leather patch accent keys with logotypes of very well known and iconic brands (GMK and Cherry) related to our hobby.

So far GMK Denim offers only one base kit which is capable to cover most basic layouts.

The group buy for GMK Denim is hosted on Originativeco.com and the price is 129$ for the base kit  ^-^

Forgot to mention that everyone who joins the GB is also participating in a raffle for an artisan in denim related colors. At this moment I can not disclosure the information about the artisan maker but the maker is very prominent in this community. So i wish everyone good luck ;)

ne proxy avail?

Unfortunately not. Usually Originativco handles all the orders worldwide. If you want to reduce shipping costs, then probably it would be wise to team up with some EU people. Tho i don't really know if shipping is going to be cheaper if you make a bulk order.

I appreciate your support guys  ^-^

This set looks amazing! I bought this for the U-80 Lake I ordered  ;D

any idea on a possible shipping date? rough estimate? Fairly new to this community and can't seem to figure out exactly how long it takes from GB open to package arriving at your doorstep.

GMK production time is around 16 weeks currently. So I would say within 4-5 months from now. 3-4 if OCO already placed the order.

I don't know how much it costs for companies/shops with their bulk orders but few weeks ago i've send some modified switches to Belgium and DHL charged me 17 euros (including insurance + tracking number) for a fairly small parcel.

Hello and thanks for support ;)  :thumb:

As Oblotzky mentioned the approximate and avarage wait time would be 4-5 months. Tho under specific conditions it might take less or more time but you should not worry about it. If this GB concludes successfully then you are guaranteed to get your items because Originativeco is a reliable vendor. ;)

Today was "bill paying" day, and I found I had room enough afterwards to buy this set.  Huzzah!

There is a particular keyboard build I have in mind and I'm thinking I may end up mixing and matching some keys from this set with GMK Eclipse keys. 
Does that make me a bad person?  Time will tell how that build turns out.

Praise be 👌 lovely set! Reason why I didn't want to order from oco is shipping + import fees, this is much better!

I'd like to introduce current GMK Denim tray design.

I hope you appreciate the "used" look. The design was done by Ryan (/u/quaddepo) ;)

By the way the pricing for GMK Denim was lowered to 125 Euros on MyKeyboard.eu  :)

Is the tray a printed photo?  It would be truly awesome if it’s made out of actual denim.

Yes its a printed photo. Tho i wish it was real denim with leather patches which would be epic... but would be also expensive.  :))

So far not. I will update this thread once i get reliable info on that ;)

Oh Chinese customers only? Well i missed that detail probably.

I don't have current order numbers but two weeks ago Originative alone had around 90 orders. I guess there will be around 150 orders in total by the end of the GB. GMK Denim is going to happen anyway. I got already in touch with GMK and we are working on the details for production. I submitted RAL color codes already and i hope i will receive the samples in few weeks. I will share the samples pictures here.

Thanks for giving it a shot!  I'm sure the extension will bring in other additional orders as well.  And it aligns with the end dates at other vendors  ;D

There was no ETA given like Drop is doing for example in the Detail description. But it will be the same typical GMK lead time which varies between 4 and 6 months - since the order has been placed. I am still waiting for the color samples. Once i get those i will share them here ;)

So i got the color samples today. Honestly i've expected struggle in this part of project because the set introduces 4 new colors and i expected several tries to match the colors. But seeing the samples in front of me - i do think GMK hit it pretty well. I'd like to see samples in the evening. The deep red color is definitely my favorite.

I've tried my best with taking a picture but the photo does not do the justice compared to how it looks in person.

Very cool, T0mb3ry!
Thank you for the updates.  Those samples are looking very promising.  I know how difficult it can be to accurately capture color as we see it in person, but I really like what I’m seeing here.  :thumb:

I could see this being one of those sleeper hits that people regret not getting in on when they had the chance.  ;)
