[GB] GMK Voyage - Shipping Now
« on: Tue, 30 July 2019, 16:04:27 »
223363-0

GMK Voyage celebrates Voyager 2's incredible feat of becoming the first spacecraft to observe Uranus and Neptune up close. The set also recognizes Voyager 2 as the longest operating spacecraft and the second to have crossed into interstellar space - the first being its sister, Voyager 1!) The colors are inspired by the blues of the icy twins, Uranus and Neptune.

Deskmats will be available to all proxies as well as Zap Cables :D, but Zap Cables are limited in number. However, the sleeve options are also available to order straight from Zap's.

There are two notable differences to the ones being sold with the GB. First, you can save some money on shipping costs. Second, they have gold-colored connector ends instead of the standard silver that Zap usually uses.

Cheers!

No problem. It's in the IC, but because the GB page was becoming a bit too long, I decided to leave it out.


These will be matched with Pantone plastic chips, and I'll be mailing the samples to some Texas locals so that they can also help me match.

Not yet. I was hoping it would be up today. Should be up tomorrow though. I know John from Zap has been working on it.

I can tell you that the two designs are:

1) Midnight Blue cord with Neon Blue Techflex
2) Navy Camo.

Heatshrink is a dark blue and the connectors will be gold in color instead of the usual silver. The gold connectors will be exclusive to GMK Voyage.

Thanks for supporting the set!

Here are some photo pics:

Edit 2:

Cable is now up!

https://cannonkeys.com/products/gb-gmk-voyage-usb-cable

Limited to 80 units so get it while it's still available. This will be the only time this design will be offered with golden-colored connector ends.

Out of curiosity, the deskmat design with orbits and timeline of major events: there seems to be a missing orbit for Neptune, which was one of the mission objectives for Voyager 2 and where a number of discoveries were made.  Was that a design decision?  I see Earth -> Mars -> Saturn -> Jupiter -> Uranus -> ...  The end point seems to symbolically represent the current location outside the solar system, past the heliosphere.  Alternatively, adding rings to "Mars" on that drawing could make it right in terms of the science goals for the planetary fly-bys by turning all the planets shown into ringed systems (which Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune have).

(P.S.: background in astrophysics, and I'm getting a couple of these mats for planetary scientists.)

Hey, thanks for your questions and support of the set!

The Mission Map deskmat is based off of this mission map: 223734-0

Which is why the planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. Yes, Jupiter has very feint rings but we decided to omit them and focus on it's lines and swirls inside the planet itself. Uranus and Neptune have swirls because we based them off the novelties of the set. I understand that Uranus is mainly one solid color with no swirls, but when creating the novelty it was quite boring with either a completely hollowed out middle or the opposite - completely infilled. The swirls were our way to make them more interesting and aesthetically pleasing.




PS: There's also a great Golden Record RAMA cap for sale too  ;D

As he stated in an earlier post, the color codes are listed in the IC thread. And no, these are all custom colors, not stock.

Grrr.  I love the novelties so much, but I can't help but see that these blues don't go together.  If only the darker mods were less green.  It's just slightly off to me.  GRRRR. The novelties are so awesome!

Yes, there is a little green in the mods, but I wouldn't say too much. Of course I'm biased though. I spent many iterations on the colors to achieve what I thought looked best. If you're looking at the Volcano render by Abec13, that best envisions how I would like the physical keycaps to look. Abec's other renders are great - Cypher and Kotai - but the lighting is a tad darker than in the Volcano one. I probably would have used Abec for all of my renders if he would have been available during the begging of the IC.

224156-0


Lastly, here's one of the first renders I purchased after carefully selecting the colors. It too is a close match to Abec's renders and is a decent representation of my vision.

224154-1


Cheers!  :)

Grrr.  I love the novelties so much, but I can't help but see that these blues don't go together.  If only the darker mods were less green.  It's just slightly off to me.  GRRRR. The novelties are so awesome!


Hmm, on the contrary I think accent and mod color goes well together - the alphas would be the one I would say are slightly out of tune - but honestly I think all colors mend together nicely.

It's a great set, best of luck man! :)

Waiting for all proxies to report, but we're hovering at about 125 for base. Recent Reddit posts have given us a good bump. Should have confirmed numbers late this week or early next.

There have been a lot of keyset GBs this month - keyboard GBs too - so it's not surprising that numbers are a bit lower than we'd hoped. That being said, we are still doing fine. The last week usually sees the largest number of buyers, which we are still several days away from. If they have to, vendors will buy out MOQ. As for the extension kit, I've been using ortho exclusively for a few months now so I'll buy out MOQ on that kit if I need to. The kit is doing fine though in terms of number of base kits sold to number of extension kits sold.

I'll ask proxies for numbers this weekend and report back early next week.


Cheers!  :thumb:

Quick update before this GB closes in the morning.

Base and Novelties have hit MOQ before vendor extras! Extension is at about 70, but these aren't final orders so perhaps more have/will sold.

Updates!

  • Order was sent to GMK about a week ago
  • The 1.25u key in the extension kit is now going to be using the new convex mold! Thanks to GMK for doing this last minute!
  • Deskmat and Mousepad samples are in. See below

226364-0
226366-1

The Mission Map deskmat colors were a bit tricky to catch in photo. The accent bluish-green of the Voyager outline appears lighter/whiter than it actually is. Upas from Cannon Keys, who has these on hand, confirms that there is more blue-green color than what the photo suggests.

The pattern deskmat looks great! No problems at all there.


Lastly, keycap samples are on their way from GMK. Upas will receive them first and then he'll past them on to me. I think he may receive them either this week or next.


Cheers!

Another comparison of 2965C vs CR and N9

Yeah, the mod's navy looks really dark, like black almost. But, if that's how it's going to be, so be it. At least it looks navy under the light.

Also, why the change of the anti-fray stitching for the deskmat? It was black before. Just wondering, still looks great.

Re: [GB] GMK Voyage - Color Samples Have Arrived

Now that a few people have chimed in, I'll give my thoughts.

All of the colors are very close, even the dark blue (2965C). The blue alphas (2728C) and the legend/accent color (0821C) are a bit closer to the Pantone than the dark blue (2965c) however. Yes, the dark blue is a bit too dark. If keyboards were used in optimal lighting it would be less of a problem, but since we all use keyboards inside under sub-optimal lighting, we'd like to lighten it up some. Now here's the thing with color matching from GMK. We can't just tell them that we'd like a certain sample just a tad brighter. Instead, we'd have to pick a whole new Pantone or RAL to be color sampled. For that reason, that's why we are keeping the legend/accent (0821C) color unchanged from the first sample. Choosing a different Pantone or RAL would only make it less of a match than what we already have.

As for the dark blue (2965C), we would like to make it a bit lighter. We're going with RAL since GMK matches to RAL better. We chose 5011. It's a bit lighter and also a bit more blue - yes, the set needs more blue. Could be too much in the lighter spectrum though. Anyway, here's a comparison:


226983-0


We also didn't realize this until GMK reached back out to us, but another set is using RAL 5011. It appears that they have already color matched to this RAL, so because GMK has already made this sample, they are able to send us one in less time than what it normally takes them. Brownie points to the person that can guess correctly which set it is.


Stay tuned for round 2 of samples. I'll also be able to show them off against Nautilus and Calm Depths since I recently acquired those two sets.

Nasp, is the other set with dark blue GMK metropolis?

My original thought was no, but after looking over the IC and GB threads I'm not too sure. The Pantone he originally chose is not the same, but since then he's gone with RAL and has not listed out the color codes. I don't think it's the same, but it looks to be very close.

Metropolis was not the set I was thinking of anyways. Hint: they are both in IC but are looking to go into GB this year. Yes, there are two sets that have RAL 5011 listed.

Please let me know what you think. We can ask for another sample, but we'd have to pick another RAL and I'm not sure if we can find something that more accurately represents the renders than what we already have.

Yes, that is correct. The one on the left is RD2. They are both very, very similar. I like that the rd2 sample will look ever so slightly more blue, and less black, in indirect indoor lighting than RD1.

Correct. Not many though since this sold under 400

Finally was able to take some color comparison pictures today with some other blue sets.


The top spacebar is from GMK Nautilus and the bottom is GMK Striker. If interested, I can add Calm Depths to the mix, but it's much different than any of the blues here.

Quick update


Deskmats are shipping now. A few of you may have already received one.


Also, Cannon Keys has a new page for GB updates: https://cannonkeys.com/pages/group-buy-status

Current ETA is February for caps. We are sitting pretty in GMK's manufacturing queue.

Would these be something I could pick up through Cannon Keys or elsewhere?

Cannon Keys and all proxies should have extras available for sale.

Upas says he wasn't given an exact date of when it will ship from GMK, but I do know that they are about to start printing the banderoles. Hopefully they give Upas a more specific timeline soon.

Edit: I should be more clear. February is the estimate, but I don't know if that means ship from GMK or that Upas will have them by that February, because they could ship at the end of the month and not arrive at Upas' until March.

6 months from group buy close to end users hands is about right these days, so that would be...March 1st?

I'm guessing this does not include the ones ordered with keycaps and those will ship when the keycaps do?

Hi Everyone,

Word from GMK has made it down to me that the keycaps are expected to ship from GMK at the end of this month, which means that Cannon Keys should have them by March. I'd think a shipping date from Cannon Keys by mid to late March would be reasonable.


Cheers!

I'm out of the loop on that issue. Which sets have that issue so I can see an example?

GMK Olive thread has some people noting that there's stem issues causing the keys to be slightly off axis. See any of that on your board?

I got mine finally ! Just in time too, because my some of my old keys were held on by glue and hope for the human race (which, given my work atm, is rapidly dwindling....)

No pictures sadly because the lighting in my room is complete crapola and my mousepad refuses to come clean, but they're amazing and I am extremely pleased !

Doubtful it'll run again with GMK as the manufacturer, but I am interested in other profiles and manufacturers.
