Is there a shot with the caps and color sample it was to match?

The samples are en route to me so when I get them I can take a picture next to the standard, though I don't expect any issues.

What is the long streak down the E/@ key in the sample? Is that a deep scratch or a stress fracture?

Edit: it looks like the plastic is separated along a line going over the (white) text plastic.

Looks like a hair to me.

Picture with the sample (which looks awesome!) really highlights the difficulty with capturing color.

I saw photo in the Instagram, and Instagram photo seems to be more blueish, SA 8010-esque. Does that photo have just incorrct white balance or it has been done with different lightning?

I am fairly confused with colors but pleased enough with final result! Good job!

The Instagram photo was taken in the evening under warm, artificial light. The 2nd image is using natural light.

Hi all,

Back with another exciting update: production is complete, right on schedule!

Please enjoy this photo of the alphas:



As soon as I know when shipping to vendors will take place, I'll be back on here to share that info with you.

Wow, looks great! Do you know how SP is packaging these days? Trays? Is there a banderole?

Have they upgraded from ziploc bags cradled in wads of packing paper?

SP has always just come in baggies as far as I know.  Never had a scratch in all these years.  I heavily prefer a simple baggie.  Much less waste.   I always find keycap trays annoying.  The first thing I do is dump them all out and recycle the plastic.

have never had scratches, but multiple instances of "2 of one cap, none of another"
versus...60? GMK base sets without a problem. I think qc easier in trays
just check em when they arrive and the vendors can help you. Kono and Drop got me sorted.

It will be Ziploc bags as per the usual. The new trays are not ready yet.
