GMK 8008

AUGUST 1-31

JOIN AT http://gmk8008.com


Great turn out for the first week, with so much competition this month!
All kits will be produced as of this moment, so do not worry about anything not making it.

SEPT 1 UPDATE

UNOFFICIAL FINAL NUMBERS:
STANDARD: 1206
ACCENT: 639
MODERN: 307
OBSCURE: 170





STORY:
I was on vacation last year and walked through a store with my wife and saw a sports bra hanging on clothing rack. I was immediately inspired to make this keyset. I have been working on it for a few months to get everything just right and I really think that this set just works. The moment I got the final color swatches chosen, I immediately knew it was one of my best so far.

FEATURES:
NUB HOMING KEYS


COHESIVE MOD LEGENDS


KITS:
STANDARD | $130


ACCENT | $30


MODERN | $39


OBSCURE | $45


SILICONE RAMA CAPS



DESKMAT:


RENDERS
Bauer by Dixie Mech



No.2 Rev.1 by Keycult



ATTENTION:
I have had some folks mention that they thought this set was just grey and pink. This worried me a little, as this set is very much blue grey. So I have had some comparison renders made up from Janglad, to help you see the difference.

(Ps-happy new year mdotmaxson. Shoulda told you in the peach blossom thread)

Looking at the recent novelkeys updates, olive closed 2 months before this and still hasn't shipped (supposedly on the 17th), and violet on creme (roughly synchronous with 8008) is due a month later. Pulse was a month later than Olive but arrived to me yesterday. Dots, Handarbeit, vaporwave all closed before 8008 too.

From that number of sets, seems like February? I bet these delays are small vs the glut that dracula, camping, 9009 r3 to Olivia r2 represent...

I believe in the last newsletter, it said that they would receive the set in February.

I post all updates from all projects were involved in at news.dixiemech.com but i thought i'm due for a post here in case theres some folks who didnt know about our update page.

This set had a 17 weeks delivery time from payment, which means it should have arrived in January, but in January GMK gave us a new shipment date (from their warehouse) of the end of Feb. I am still waiting on photos of all the new molds before mass production starts, so i have a feeling it will not even meet that shipping date, even though they havent said that to me. I ask for updates weekly, and sometimes multiple times a week. Seems this set is going to be even further delayed from the first delayed date like all the rest of the sets.

I will keep everyone updated but make sure to check out the news.dixiemech.com each week if you want weekly updates. The link will be in my bio under my photo for quick access.
