I will once everything is together I don't want to release everything in parts cause it will cause inconsistencies but I used formula Guide coated Pantone book.

Yeah it was originally DSA but it couldn't do what I wanted. So, I moved to KAM so if R2 happens ill either do it in two different profiles or just one different. but glad to see you like it
I actually prefer KAM, but I’m curious what it is that DSA couldn’t do? The space bar maybe?

Speaking of, really interesting spacebar. I’d love to see more renders of it. Being an ortho user, it would be cool to see in 2u, though I assume interest wouldn’t be high enough.

Hi,
Yes the major reason why I didn't use DSA was because the spacebar and I think you will be excited to hear I plan on doing a 2u novelty spacebar so you can use it. There will be more and better renders of everything once I finish, and there might even be a sample of the spacebar with the design on it.

Its still happening I have finished kitting and such but I want to wait for the samples its just taking longer than expected and I totally love the disarray I think that or the Cyberboard would go really well with the set. I am glad to see that you like the set. I have some exciting collabs to announce as well!

It will be matte I got sample of both and I found I loathe glossy pbt because it makes my fingers sweat. I hope that what you were hoping for!

I mean glossy pbt feels more retro like a 50's console ckeyboard belonging to something with 'mainframe' in the name.
Perfect for a profile like SA or MT3 but KAM has more class than that and deserves better.

Pardon my enthusiasm - on keycapcalendar, this is the only upcoming offer I'm excited about. I want it.

I vote for (as seen in other kits):
- Blank Ergo modifier addon kit (or novelty art modifiers, one can dream)
- 6 unique 1.25u's in novelty kit (for Redux I buy 2 kits for the needed 10x1.25u).

Novelty keys are more useful for variable layouts than modifiers with legends imo (followed closely by blanks...). Printed legends suitability is so niche on some sizes, it would be helpful to leverage that flexibility!

As the novelty kit is now, good symmetry cannot by achieved on a Redox without weird redundancy. The "Play," video camera, cell phone, and "Eject" art would be really useful as 1.25u too. Others have 6, why not this novelty kit? Thank you, I want.

Love the set and what has been shown. Never had KAM profile so excited to try it out here. Always a fan of novelties and would enjoy more but I understand if the novelty set is finalized.
Good Luck!

I have decided to use my Pantones as my basis for color since the samples are taking so long and if any changes happen I will make sure to communicate that clearly as it happens. I would like to apologize for the lack of updating and the lack of being involved. I am truly excited for this set and I really can't wait to share it with you both kitting and updated renders will be posted by next Friday I hope.

Here is the colors I will be moving forward with:

Alpha keys - Pantone 2975 C is a light blue

Mod text - PANTONE 2036 C is pink

Mods keys/alpha text- PANTONE 4146 C is dark blue

Alt Alpha keys - PANTONE 4066 C is pink

Accent keys - PANTONE 267 C and PANTONE 667 C (this is the original accent in the current renders and since so many people like the set with it I will offer an accent kit, but not noveties)
