Good news!

Just heard back from Upas and it looks like we are close enough, or will be at the end, to MOQ that Vendors can pick up enough sets to get us there!  :thumb:

Thanks to everyone that supported the set! Can't wait to show off samples of everything when it arrives!


PS: Don't forget about our artisan giveaway!

Thanks. I appreciate the sentiment. It's been quite a ride. Taking a keyset from IC to GB is not for the faint of heart!  :eek:

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.

I appreciate everyone's support!

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!

Color samples have arrived!


Indirect Outside Lighting:



Comparison of modifier color vs CR and N9 GMK stock colors


Warm Indoor Lighting


Another comparison of 2965C vs CR and N9



Upas (Cannon Keys) and I have our own opinions, but we'll reserve our judgement so that we don't skew what you all think. Please let us know what you think!

Samples look pretty good! Might just be nitpicking but I could see a shade brighter for the 2965C and a tiny bit more green in the 0821C. 2728C is looking pretty solid as is to me. Interested to see others opinions' as well!

Everything bar the grey-black looks pretty on point to me, which I could think could do with a slight bit less K.

that dark dark blue is gonna look more black than GMK phantom. Looks darker than metropolis. I don't mind but I'm curious about others. Also ok if it goes slightly lighter.

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.

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.

And....rd2 sample came in. It's a subtle difference, but it is lighter than the first sample.

227766-0

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.

I think a slight deviance from the renders is fine. At the end of the day, no one is gonna go through the renders with a fine tooth comb as renders are just that, renders.

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.

...And samples have been approved! Going with RAL 5011 for the mods since it's lighter than the Pantone sample that was sent.

GMK has been notified and I'll report back when they send us info about production and shipping times. Should still be on target for January or February.  :thumb:

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.
