Any chance for separate UK and EU vendors like in this GB?
Nothing against Jae but the exchange rate and shipping costs from UK are a deal breaker (and not just for me).

Quick update:

Got quotes from GMK and as it turns out this will require 43 new moulds, however we're proceeding with doubleshot since I think it's important these moulds do exist  ;D

Still looking for an NA vendor so if you are interested please reach out!

Oooof.

Have you tried reaching out to some NA vendors already? I think vendors normally expect designers to reach out and not the other way around. I understand they may already have slots filled out for most if not all of the rest of this year.

Reached out to a couple, but it doesn’t hurt to ask here too just in case. Personally I don’t think it would hurt to run this alongside something else as it’s not a full set, though ultimately that’s up to the vendor.

It may be worth trying to reach out to all of those that you know of. Exactly as you said, they may be able to handle the logistics as it is a smaller, single-kit buy.

Hope this one gets off the ground. Would love to see this add-on kit get made as well as other designers take advantage of the molds.

I don't understand what the Tab keys are for, but I've been looking for an alpha kit to cover 40% boards, and this is it.

Since this alpha add-on kit is supposed to be paired with an existing beige keyset, the extra Tab lets you reuse half of the mods and the original alphas from that keyset to fully cover another keyboard (assuming it uses a different layout). Most keysets come with different options for the mods (stepped/non-stepped Caps, regular/tsangan bottom row etc.) — Tab is the only key that comes in a single copy. That's why alpha add-on kits like this include a second Tab; essentially, so that you can use the remainder of your set so it doesn't go to waste.

No pricing yet, but have got an NA vendor now!

I’m happy to announce Project Keyboard will be running this set on the North American side  ;D

No confirmed date yet but expect this to be soon™

Black and beige are still my preferred colors. Cannot be more bloody-boring.

Considering this will be pretty expensive for an alpha kit (new molds and all) running it along a classic retro set (or expending it to include mods) might work better.

+1 It'd be interesting to see what the cost would be for a full base kit with these alphas vs. just the alphas themselves. Could be worth looking in to!

It was mentioned in this IC before and that would require for the sublegends to be pad printed. Not the best solution

That idea has been ditched, already.
