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.

Hi all,

Just got a notification that NovelKeys has begun shipping sets to buyers!

Hopefully, it won't be much longer now for the other proxies.

This might be in my hands at 8 months after GB close. That would be the fastest Iíve ever gotten an SA set and these werenít just any 8 months. Bravo.

Color is fantastic. Just as I had imagined.  My phone is really bad with accuracy on blues, so Iíve put it next to some other blue SA sets you guys might know for reference

Just got mine and put them on a board. They came out SO good - the color, the legends, everything is spot on. This was easily one of the best GBs I've been a part of, in terms of turnaround, communication, pricing, end product, etc. Huge thanks to Fredington and I'm looking forward to your other projects.

WOW that was fast. wasn't expecting these til next year the way things have been going.

Not a peep from DeskHero. I'm assuming those who have received their sets already are in the USA. I know that international shipping is a mess right now but I am disappointed in DeskHero for not even emailing updates. I had no idea this set was shipping at all.

Ugh +1 here. They do a lot of group buys so I am surprised they don't have an update yet. Lockdown in Canada in most cities is set to essential travel only, Christmas is supposed to be cancelled (not that people are taking it seriously, based on the infection rates)

I would message your vendor (NK?) then. I was under the impression everything was shipped as of last week.
