Could it be possible to add a spacebar kit specifically 2.75u, 2.25u, and 1.25?

I'm going to stay arround here because I want to get a gradient set. And the theme is awesome and the matts I bet are going to be gorgeous.

I hope it gets spanish ISO support.

Thanks!

IC soon, like this week. We have majority of kits done now (we might be missing tricky ones like Ergo and Colemak/Dvorak atm because the gradient is a bit difficult to account for, but we're hoping to get feedback on how to best implement those).

Yes, we've got 4-5 deskmat concepts that we'll show at IC (soonTM) and hope it hits the spot. Open to all suggestions and feedback too if it doesn't scratch people's itch.

Hi, sorry we've been a bit slow perfecting this, so once we go to IC (lilkely this week), we can consolidate vendors (should take less than a week) and discuss setting a GB date, ideally in Q1 2021.  Depends on how IC feedback goes on if we do need to revise anything major.

Awesome set! I love the gradient. Good luck mate.
Thanks :)!

No worries! Just glad to hear this set is moving forward. Thanks for your hard work!  :thumb:

Slight delays due to further renders, minor kit fixes, so we're aiming to post IC by next Tuesday.
We're aiming to even accommodate Colemak (sorry Ergo will be done after initial IC post)

Teasers for those who pay attention to this quiet corner of Geekhack:

Hex6c


Paragon


Japanese text mod option

Look very promising  :eek: 
I'm very curious that can PBT make these colors? Do you have any sample or anything to show these colors are possible?
Anyway, do you still consider no gradient set?

Hi,
I am new to the scene. I am really looking forward to getting these keycaps for my first custom mechanical keyboard! Are there any other websites I should watch to not miss out on any important information from you?
Keep it up and have a beautiful day!

Check this thread on the Group Buys sub-forum https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=57761.0

There are a few pages that list current and upcoming GBs and ICs

PBT can make these colours. But do note that renders may not be best representation due to lighting conditions and monitors.
Do note we will be using Pantone gp1601a guide for colour reference. During IC we should be able to get sample keycaps to prove colours. See KAT Eternal, KAT Napoleonic and KAM Superuser threads for photos to show proof that manufacturer Keyreative can match Pantone colours requested.

Hi, when we post IC there'll be a new feedback form to leave your email details on where we'll inform you of upcoming sale dates and other major updates. In the mean-time, another way is you fill out the google form in this post (it's not been taken down despite a strike through) and you put your email in there. You do not have to do the other survey questions (they're now irrelevant for data).

Hi, we've finally made it over to official interest check phase, with major updates everywhere. Lots and lots of kits, and deskmats galore!

Check it out here: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=110310.0

Thanks to all those who provided valuable feedback that let us get to this next stage.
I'll look fondly back at this thread to see how far it's come along since then :'(
