About
This is a gold on white set with versatility that’s only limited by your imagination. White and gold invokes the image of divinity to some, a symbol of royalty to others, and for the rest another cute af color scheme. Whatever you imagine this keyset to be, make it your own.

GMK Honey is here to stay, with the support of a solid team. Scroll down to see the list of vendors and artisans.
Honey captures the versatility we were looking for; the versatility to treat wounds for the Egyptians, preserve seeds for the Greek, flavor tea for our mornings, and provide a theme for this unique keycap set.
This is a design that me and my roommate have been working on the past few months. We have a few color variations and novelties available to solidify the theme while offering more flexibility.
Is this your Israel? Your next piece to your end-game board? Your next cutesy keycap addition? Let us know if you’re interested and what we can do to bring this one step closer to your dream keycap set.

Color Picking - COMPLETED
❁ Oct 30, 2019 - Additional pantone chips received; PANTONE COLORS UPDATED: 124 C > 123 C | 7571 C > 7570 C
We acknowledge the concerns of the colors being too bright with possible contrast issues. We thought so as well at first, but the colors come out much differently when they're on an actual chip. After reviewing multiple shades similar to the originally decided pantone colors, we believe these colors will better reflect what people expect from the renders. No camera and monitor will perfectly reflect the colors, but we uploaded a picture on our Instagram if you're interested in seeing the chips.
❁ Oct 23, 2019 - Additional pantone chips ordered
❁ Oct 21, 2019 - Pantone chips received, will be used as references

Interesting, althougḣ... YMMV. I can't help but feel the darker color would be better for the legends on the white keys. YMMV.

Also, RAL codes?

I like this the best of all yellow sets I've seen and that counts the Serika micons I have sitting nearby.

Every time I ask for this on reddit I get downvoted, but I'd buy yellow alphas. Just sayin.

Love the theme! Would love to have the beehive on the branch novelty in a set of two 1.5u r4 bottom row in addition to the honey comb set. I’m in if GMK Honey gets produced. Awesome work so far.

Also, RAL codes?

I specifically wanted to create a gold/yellow on white set, which is why I chose the lighter color for the alphas. I looked into RAL originally but used Pantones instead to select the colors

Thanks for the kind words :) I definitely love the way the beehive novelty turned out and I'll consider having it as a 1.5u r4

Would like a more creamish white color for the alphas imo. Would make the yellow pop more tbh. Nice set.

Please, Please, Please offer an all yellow version.  Please!  I am interested just ever so slightly in this kit as is.  If you did all yellow as an option (or even as the base), I would HAVE to buy it.
