Good to see this has started up, I'm in for the Rama cap!

Somewhat disappointed that those of us with just R1 won't be able to join the artisan raffles, but at least that will prevent me from spending even more money on artisans :))

We have past 1/3 of the 500 MOQ for the base kit, the Novelty kit has past the 150 MOQ, the Rama cap has past the 100 MOQ.
This only after the first day, pretty impressive although the communities kit and Latin alphas need some love.

Too bad there isn't a 40s kit or at least ortho mods in the base - would only require 4, 1u mods.

It is if you can join, we were at the Leeds meetup this weekend so I guess they forgot to close the GB.

So, the GB is closed with the most vendors.
I'm finalizing the numbers and will place the P.O. to GMK ASAP.
Final numbers will be released once the P.O. is placed.
We have past 1k bases and 500 novelties. Really impressive.
Thank you all who has joined the GB!

I remember you, kingnestea, mentioning somewhere (not sure where that was..) that there might be an added green ISO enter, when 1000 sets are reached. Is this something I made up in my mind somehow or is that true and there is a possibility for that? :)

Yes, I said that in my IC, but since the P.O. needs to be placed ASAP before the sh*t tons of GBs are ending, I'll have to communicate with GMK after the P.O. and see what is the possibility.
And please don't kill me if we can't add the green ISO enter..we didn't reach 1k with GB, it's with vendor extras. :))

We have a small issue of the compass arrows, the characters are not feasible with double shot.
I'm thinking about double shot for the arrows and UV-printing for the characters.
If anyone have experience with GMK UV-printing, please advice.

The 東南西北 arrows are what drew me to this set. Oof. As long as UV-printing provides decent results, I will be happy. Just don't cancel those characters on the arrows.

For the moment, I think I'll go for the UV printed characters unless I hear differently...
GMK royal typewritter and all those cyrillic sets have UV printed legends on the alphas and I haven't really heard any complain about those.
A friend of mine has been using his royal typewritter set as a daily driver for over a year, and he has even cleaned the set 3 times with soap, the caps already have shine on them, but no single issue with the UV printed legends.



Ignore his giant foot please...

----------------------------------------------

More detailed pictures of the UV-printed legends after being his daily driver for over a year, I think it is staying really strong.

There is no way I'll cancel those, not even another font.
GMK suggested to use another font, but I don't think it will solve the problem due to the nature that 3 of 4 characters are too complicated.
I tried to adjust the artwork, but it seems impossible to keep the vibe of these characters and being compliance with the GMK double shot guideline.

kinda bum about this. I'm sure it will be fine, but from the sample photos; my biggest concern is the finish. It has a glossy look to it compare to the rest of the caps.

kingnestea,

Just wondering, is the Numpad Enter only come in Brown color? Really hoping there is green Numpad Enter, cause i'll be rocking them a lot on 98 layout.
