Man. That's a nice mid-GB bump. Must have been artkey raffle? It is one of the nicer artkey colorsets imo.

Will the 2.00 blank keycap work on a 2U left-shift key with stabilizers? Also, if not, is it possible to include that in this order? I just placed an order for a ton of keycaps, but if there's no 2U shift, I'll definitely be pulling out.

Sorry, there isnít sadly. And it wouldnít be possible to include in the order.
Sorry in advance!

Love these colours.  They should look really well when in real life.

Awesome numbers everyone! Thanks for the support so far, means the world. Group buy for US at least will conclude at midnight tonight PST, so get those orders in whilst you can. The EU will follow suit and should conclude tomorrow morning. Most other vendors should follow suit.
Thanks :)

I'm in the same boat. Could I order from EU even if I'm in the US?

Why is there an extra B key in the base kit?
There is no such thing as "too much orange."

Any timeline on when you will get color samples?

Currently, it's a very awkward situation. I had the color samples shipped to GMK around 3 months ago directly from me. Subsequently, due to COVID, they were placed on sea freight 1 month later. Upon learning of this I decided the best option would be to order a second set of samples to ensure fast delivery. These were shipped Pantone US to a US address via 'MyUS', a parcel forwarding company. From this, they send it over to Germany via DHL directly. Last week I received an email directly from them notifying me that the parcel was lost in their headquarters in the US and they are currently looking to resolve this situation. I may end up ordering a 3rd batch of samples very soon if I don't hear back from them!
I am doing everything I can, but due to shipping, COVID, and downright luck, the samples are yet to arrive.
But, I am confident we will be able to approve colors quickly to ensure the sets ship when GMK first said they would. Sorry for the confusion of this, if anyone has questions about anything, feel free to ask and I'll do my best to keep as transparent as possible.
On another note, the deskmats are finishing production today and will be sent to all vendors subsequently. Most should ship in around 1 month from now if everything goes to plan!

Don't feel pressured to deliver on time, I'm sure most would prefer a well matched set over one that arrived earlier, plus we all understand delays were inevitable with COVID-19. Thanks for the update / transparency.

Hi, I will work to release a version that will be available for personal use e.g. Wallpapers. I just want to minimize the risk of stealing and people reproducing the mats.

Any updates on the RAMA keys?

They have been produced and shipped to vendors as far as I know. I know DeskHero has gotten theirs, but as for the other vendors, I'd keep updated on their socials!

Deskmats are shipped separately only if you ordered them separately (so thus paying for shipping for them individually)

Hey there!
Yes, there are some updates. So far RAMA's and deskmats have all been produced and shipped, some still waiting to get to vendors. As for the caps themselves, its been fairly slow-moving and nothing really to update. I know GMK is still matching up colors as the problems with shipping resulted in this being delayed, so samples should arrive shortly. I'll keep you all posted when I hear what's happening.
As for the question regarding deskmats, as LightningXI stated, Deskmats are shipped separately only if you ordered them separately.However I know some vendors will wait until the caps come to ship your deskmat.
Thanks for the support.
