I hate this “x” is better than “y” debate.

I’ll just add both text and icon 40’s/Ortho for snowman.

I'm finalizing kits so I wanted to get this out there before I get a real professional to render these.



Someone tell me how to minimize the images please, sorry for the spam of images.


Also it would be great reference if you could fill out this poll.

Love your KAT! And I love these kits! Thanks for the extra arrow key kit. At this point, the only thing I wish for is a second 1.75u shift in the big modifier kit so that I can use one kit for two keyboards. I know that I could technically use the 2.75u key on a 60%, but I'd love to use one modifier kit for both a 65% and a 95% and it's easily possible except that I would need another 1.75u shift. Adding this would make it perfect for me personally :)

Haven't voted on ther strawpoll yet, I'm getting alphas, colevrak, text mods, text numpad, grey 6u spacebar and probably icon arrows, but not sure yet about the alt f row and a second set of alphas with colevrak.

/edit: oh you can only vote for one thing at a time in the strawpoll. can you change that or is it supposed to work like that?

I'll redo the strawpoll into a gform here in just a moment, fresh in about 5 minutes.

Also the gray split kit is only the split space bars and 6u. You will still need to buy the space bar kit if you need the 6.25/7U

Yeah I need a 6u spacebar and getting it in grey is probably cheaper (due to the smaller kit), and I think I'd prefer it over white looks-wise for that specific keyboard anyway. Is the 6u spacebar with centered or off-center stem?

What do you think about a second 1.75u shift?

It should support off-centered

Also I will not be adding a second 1.75u shift, it just seems redundant and I'm still trying to keep the kits to a minimal even though my kit count says otherwise.

this looks so nice!
just wondering, any possibility of adding black accent key on snowman modifier.
also somehow getting blue spacebar on snowman/modifier or frostbite alpha?

Edit: also 1u for inner column for ergo kits?
For Sol2 compatibility

That's a no for the gray accent key, it's just a very unpopular accent that I don't like for the snowman kit.
And you say 1u, are you referring to a whole column?

Made an account on geekhack just to say that I love this kit, awesome job !
Also, I already completed the gform but please keep the French kit and the BE support, it's so rare to have.  :)

Will buy anyway if this goes live with the French kit, but do you have a price estimation for these kits ? Thx !

We're missing the B Frostbite key in the space bar kit.

I'm going to be upfront and say that I'm not keen on adding any more keys to any of the kits. There are quite a lot and I would rather avoid adding keys to support a certain keyboard/layout.

On a second thought, is it just two keys that needs to be added? to the bottom row?

There should be enough keys in the ergo kit to support that

I'm keeping that key in there for their intended use, also as I am not creator of the icon mods I would like to stay as true as I could possibly be.

Kit Renders are finalized, there will be no more changes from here on out.

Unless there's some problems that I somehow missed.

Edit: Some problems came up, will have to put some kits on the chopping block.
Prices will be out soon after I get confirmation from Keyreative and vendors.

Bummer about the arrow kit. Can you maybe add blue arrow keys to the numpad kits? There are almost no keyboards with numpad but without arrows, and a lot of them have separated arrows that would look great in the accent color.

Tentative pricing has been updated for Novel Keys, the rest will be sometime shortly.

$36 - Arctic Alphas
$43 - Frostbite Alphas
$32 - Beluga
$30 - Colevrak+
$38 - Ergo Modifiers
$23 - French
$63 - Arctic Modifiers

$12 - Ice

Also the frostbite alphas are more expensive due to the need to add some keys for it to make it work with the modifiers out there.

Splitting the kits further would require compromise in other areas.
