I think the red would be more striking with mono legends.  Double legends drowns out the black-violet.  Cool set

Due to the complex design of Excalibur Morgan we may be moving it to the Enter key to comply with GMK's tooling specifications.

I admire the “Alter” pun key. Well ****ing done.
IMO the colors seem a bit washed-out though? Maybe a shade or two bolder?

I've ordered color sheets from RAL to check in person. The colors were matched to a digital image of Salter using the RAL design and classic color systems which of course doesn't reflect what it'll look like in real life.

If you have suggestions please provide the RAL color code, we won't be using Pantone because GMK prefers working within RAL.

However I can tell you that I've already spent countless hours trying to find the best match and this is what I've ended up with.

I am personally not sold on the Mod colors. Would you consider a child kit where the mods are the same base as the alphas? Otherwise, I love the colors and the legends!

This might be a possibility in the future but as of right now there are no plans for this. Thanks for the feedback!

Just a heads up that the image link to the novelty kit seems to be broken. Regardless, this set is looking great!

Perhaps consider min. ortho support in base?

R2: Out
R3: Data or Read
R4: Shift and Enter
All text mods since it uses the Delete 1u key from the navigation column.


Lastly, can you put two 1u spacebar keys in the spacebar kit? Thanks for considering!

I had replaced the novelty image with an updated mockup so hopefully it's working now.

Ortho became popular after my time so I will have to look into it with my vendor. We'd obviously love to include everyone but also need to manage prices, and our experience might be different from other running ICs/GBs.

I mean it's kinda blue. Also damn you figured it out. I actually designed the set while inverted.

The mod legends for r2 and r3 are ambiguous otherwise you'd have to implement Esc and Tab twice. Also some people use r3 Ctrl so that's 3 keys you're saving going that route.

All in all, 4 - 1u keys will let you cover Planck and Preonic boards which are probably the most popular <60% boards.

I'm here for consultation if you need me.

At this time, in order to keep set prices down we're probably just going to keep our base kit as is.
