With just under a week left, we're on track to hopefully sell 400 base kits this gb. Some announcements were made yesterday on reddit, but I'll be sure to throw them here as well.

We've just passed the 300 mark handily, with our current numbers from gmkalter.com being:

Base - 318

Novelties - 208

Spacebars - 117

I'd also like to say that Switchmod Keyboards will be using hard packaging boxes for GMK Alter, and most likely going forwards. Any set purchased from my site past Alter will ship in custom boxes. I don't have much to share regarding the design of the box yet, but it's just something I'd like to do because I think that the bandoliers are just kinda flimsy and disposable. The bandoliers may still be used; this is just an extra layer of protection on top if that is the case.

Thanks very much for all of your support thus far! Let's finish this week out strong.

hi guys sorry for lack of updates on gh, please join Switchmod's discord for the fastest updates.

Deskmat have arrived and have begun shipping if you only ordered a deskmat

If you ordered with a sleeve or set they will be sent when those arrive.

Sleeves have been ordered and we have sent payment to GMK so hopefully production will begin asap

I believe the next update when we get color samples from gmk!

Happy holidays weebs

There will be extras, it's become a standard now that vendors tend to buy extra kits, personally I'm just going to wait and buy one of those as I was a fool and didn't buy the set when I had the chance.

Re: [GB] GMK Alter - production - waiting on samples r2
« Reply #81 on: Thu, 06 February 2020, 10:20:21 »
From krelbit:

"R1 sample result: plastics far from renders, red OK, render-matched new colors sent to gmk for r2 sample.

While fairly accurate to the source material, we sold you a set based off renders, so we believe that path is much more important to follow than colors on a fig."




Even so most figures have way more contrast than what we received so we are hoping that this next round will bring us closer to the intended vision of being a keycap set.

we received round 2 and are currently deliberating, Switchmod is incredibly busy at the moment with lube orders. This round of samples is looking promising though.

as you can imagine, covid19 has delayed things significantly on all ends. will try to keep in touch.

Re: [GB] GMK Alter - production UPDATE!
« Reply #85 on: Sun, 03 May 2020, 19:03:38 »
Hey guys I hope you're all well. First of all I do want to apologize, it was due to my inexperience as a designer that this set has been delayed, on top of COVID-19 messing everything up.

But finally, the update you've been waiting for! USPS has been slow AF but Canada Post miraculously delivered the samples on a Sunday.

So basically here's the start to finish of how the sample process has been:

Krelbit received first samples, said the base colors were too dark. I messed up and didn't gauge the lightness correctly vs the renders with the RAL sheets I ordered. Typical amateur mistake with set designing.

In order to not mislead anyone with our advertising we decided to try our best to match with the renders. While I was in NYC, Olivia graciously helped out and lent her RAL book where I repicked the colors.

GMK sent us round 2 samples with the new colors and both Krelbit and I are happy with the blue and the gray we've now chosen. I don't have a calibrated display to confirm the exactness but I am confident that it is very close to what has been advertised. At the end of the day, it reminds me of Salter which is the end goal.

We will give GMK the okay to proceed with production ASAP!

Also currently no pics cuz I'm a god awful photographer.
