I somehow get the feeling that rama caps are long done and sitting at vendors yet not shipping due to actual set not being ready yet.

I would love to see the results of Round 3 please.
Are they similar to round 1 or round 2? Round 1 was way better than R2

Here is R3 but keep in mind these colors are very hard to picture correctly. Even earlier rounds will not be seen the same way on your screens vs IRL. Even viewing this photo with the most color accurate monitor isn't going to give you a 100% view of how these really look.

But I am very happy with how R3 came out looking, these are the colors the set will use.

Shipping should be in late March. Cheers everyone!

While you will be able to get extras of the keycap set, I don't think that they do extras of the Rama caps. That is of course if you plan on getting them on mm

Yes, shipping was delayed a bit due to COVID19 but It should be getting to vendors soon to then be sorted and shipped to buyers  :thumb:

Shipping Update: We got notice from GMK today that they're going to be moving a lot slower due to COVID19. Delivery on this to vendors is being delayed 3-4 weeks. I know this sucks guys but it seems almost everywhere is getting affected by this sadly. I will update you all when I know more.

Thank you for your continued patience everyone and stay safe!

Color Update: Hey everyone! I know there are some Instagram photos floating around and hopefully, this will ease your concerns. In the following photos below myself and Upas used the same 2 caps in each photo, the caps used are the final production samples and will be what everyone receives. A few things to keep in mind

1. keysets are not always a 1:1 to renders, that's expected with every keyset. That said I am happy with how these colors turned out based on my vision for the set.
2. You will see how lighting can affect these colors in various different photos taken (especially so in some of Upas's photos)
3. Everyone uses different screens to view these photos, not everyone is going to see them the same.
4. These are just pictures we took with 2 different cameras and have not been edited at all.
5. Everyone sees colors differently.

Thank you for your continued patience everyone and stay safe!

I also want to add - none of those photos (none of the 11) really capture exactly the color I perceive the keycaps to be in real life, based on what I'm seeing on my own particular screen.

It's just a really difficult color to photograph, I think.

I'll reserve better judgment until I have them in hand, but the fact that none of the pictures regardless of lighting or camera come close to capturing the spirit of the renders doesn't seem promising.

Heya! Got mine delivered today!

Here's some first impressions...

Colors
The colors are just beautiful. While they are more saturated than in the renders, they are very satisfying and 'peachy'.

Especially the modifier color (light peach) is hard to pinpoint in real life, too. It appears very different under diverse lighting conditions and environments (quickly tested on both my desks). With bright daylight, the set looks more faithful to the renders. Otherwise, as Steve Jobs would say, 'you are not lighting it correctly'. I would not worry about renders when it looks that good in real life though / YMMV.


GMK
Legend quality is impeccable, with the exception of 3 keys :
  • Accent ANSI Enter. Line is wobbly and uneven.
  • ANSI Enter. Better than the accent counterpart but uneven line width
  • 2u Shift. Bottom line has varying thickness and is not horizontal
Nothing too bad really but GMK needs a little more encouragement :D

All other keys are really good, even under close inspection. So GMK have again stepped up their game from recent mishaps (Emir's GMK WoB/BoW Icon extension kit) but are not there yet all the way. Measured with enthusiast's standards.

Thanks
IMO Ren did an awesome job of translating an idea into the real world, thanks for the great experience :thumb:

Edit: Second impression: super high quality keycaps. Trying the theme on different boards atm

My set came in today, very satisfied with the result, thanks Ren! It's very photogenic.

Some unsolicited advice as someone that used to sell paint as well as do screen-printing: I suggest using paint chips / pantone references when coming up with color sets; It would make color matching easier and there would be no debate of "it looks different depending on lighting/photographer". Regardless, the set looks great, cheers!

I wanted to have them in hand before I passed judgement. This is truly a beautiful set.

Not sure if Rensuya was playing mind games all along by setting expectations low and over-delivering in the end, but this keycap set is immaculate. The colors are pastel-y, not as washed out and muted as the renders, but VERY satisfying to look at - better than the renders IMO.

Lovely work Rensuya.

Rama Caps are also God Tier quality. Exactly like the renders.

Thanks for the GB Rensuya, can't wait to see your next creation.

Just got them today but didn't take the same kind of photos, but I also have to say it: these caps are exactly what I hoped for, and look beautiful. It might've came in after expected, but thankfully there was no compromise on quality. Looking forward to typing on these for many years to come!

got mine today and i'd echo some of the recent comments - the set is stunning and unique. i'm extremely happy with it, and the artisan i got (the green leaf). yes, it's more pastel than the relatively washed out renders, but i'll take the real product over the renders thank you very much! great job ren and upas.
