GMK Yuru
Group Buy on September 1st
https://gmkyuru.com/

> Discord Server
> Instagram

Abstract
More
Yuru Camp is an anime I thoroughly enjoyed, and knowing my previous history of making 'weeb' GMK sets (see: GMK Noel), I thought it was only obvious to make a Yuru Camp themed one given the popularity (season 2 soon :p) and the vast oppurtunity for novelties. However, GMK Camping r2 (Camping in Japan) was already about to run at that time, and I didn't want to overlap that set by creating something uncannily similar. That and most of the colours from the show didn't appeal to me as being something that could be translated well into keycaps. That all changed when one day, when I was just at a uni event, one of my friends came in with a piece of merchandise: Shima Rin's scarf from the show! I loved the colours of it, and knew I had to make a set based on it.



Vendors
Group Buy will be available from September 1st to October 1st, with a projected fulfillment date of July 2021 through the following vendors

Pricing
Prices are in USD through Cannon Keys; for all other vendors please refer to the official site link
  • Base Kit: $134.99
  • Hiragana Base Kit: $134.99
  • Extensions: $39.99
  • Novelties: $59.99
  • (≧◡≦) (Emote): $25.99
  • Deskmats: $16.99
  • Puppies Rama: $38

Colours
Please keep in mind that it is very difficult to capture colours on a semi-gloss coating, and as such, use these colour samples as a general guide on what to expect and not as a finite reference. Colours have been graded with a colourchecker.


  • GMK CP for Alphas and Modifier Legends
  • GMK WS2 for Accent Legends
  • RAL 010 30 30 for Alpha Legends and Modifiers
  • RAL 190 80 25 for Accents
The colours for the set include a rich burgundy for mods, mild cream for alphas and mod legends, and a light teal for accents as seen from the picture. This was initially colour-matched from the show as the physical scarf was too saturated, but was later adjusted slightly to better suit the set. WS2 was used on Accent Legends to provide better contrast and uniformity with the mods legends.

Just a small update with less than a week to go until GB starts, we currently have some artisan collaborations in the works and can't want to share them with you when they're ready! Follow the Discord Server to keep updated on that!

Hey all! I'd just like to thank everyone who were able to join the Group Buy on Day 1!

Day 1 Numbers: (1 vendor yet to submit)
Latin Base: 44
Hiragana Base: 72
Novelties: 69 (nice)
Extensions: 14
(≧◡≦): 42
Rama: 48
Accessories Deskmat: 25
Nightscapes Deskmat: 78

We've had a decent start to the set, but it looks like we may need some help getting everything to MOQ. As with Noel, I am committed to having everything made, and will personally buy a majority if it doesn't reach it. However, this won't be possible if numbers don't get closer, so I'll need all your help to make it happen!

Hey everyone! Just want to be transparent with any changes (however small) to the Group Buy as it concerns everyone purchasing the Novelties Kit for the set.

So last week, GMK contacted us about issues with some of the novelty keys, specifically the line thicknesses, that would make it unable to reproduce consistently through their doubleshotting process. Usually these changes would be made before Group Buy, but GMK were late on their response, and as such, we've updated the novelties to make sure they'd be approved. Line thicknesses were increased and some elements simplified.



Personally, I like these new changes as they make smaller details more pronounced when viewed at a normal distance.

For the errors, please keep in mind of the keycap size before viewing. The best comparison would be viewing the old (above) and new (below) renders and switching them side by side. A lot of the smaller details are now much easier to see.

Yes. Their word is bond.

Second, they also just havenít hit MOQ yet, and 1/5th of the total orders in the last 48 hours even before extras is pretty common.
