It's all preferences, myself I'll most likely put it on a darker colored keyboard. But in the next update, we will release E-White board renders!

You're in luck!  The IC title says "GB starts December 1st."

The OP has a list of vendors.  Mechs & Co will handle USA.

looks great.  I'm happy with the kit choices, but I wonder how many people will be ordering the base kit alone.  In my opinion, the gradient Mod kit is almost essential and I'd expect almost a 1:1 adoption rate.

I do have one question regarding the color codes:  are you sure about using CR as the black base?  In my opinion renders rarely capture how truly black CR is, and these renders had me thinking that a dark grey was being used.

This is none of my business, but what’s the MOQ for the mods kit? The pricing is fantastic and it makes me think you’re above the usual 100 MOQ.

Correct, we've based the MOQ on 150, to make it more affordable  :thumb:

just thought about it, but Norse glyphs in the style of ePBT skadi would have worked great with the theme, maybe in a 2nd run :)

Hi,

I'm really sorry, I'm new to the forum but joined as I saw these mats and keycaps and they're stunning.

I wanted to ask, will these become available to those vendors or is this a group buy only and if so, how would I join that?

Thank you

No worries, welcome! This is a group buy, and those vendors will have it available on their shop starting on December 1st. There's a start date and an end date to these group buys, and as long as you buy within that time frame, your order is placed. After that, it's just a matter of waiting for the group buy to finish, get sent to GMK, get the colors approved, have the caps be produced, then sent out to the vendors, then ultimately sent to you. The process can take anywhere from 6 months to even longer based on how long the wait time on GMK is like and how many iterations it takes to get the colors approved. Hope that clears things up!

Glad people like the new deskmat a lot. The illustrator did a great job, and she managed to fulfill the theme exactly how we wanted it to be done. Go check her out here!

What row and size is the wide wavy cap on the upper row of the novelties?

Edit: IIRC OP said they were R1, R2, and R4 on reddit. So I'm assuming its an R1 backspace replacement. Those rows wouldn't make sense though because I'm assuming that the middle row of novelties should be an enter replacement which is R3 right?

Sorry for all the questions, this is my first GMK set I want the novelties for and I want to be sure of what I am getting.

Hey everyone! Only 2 days left before the GB goes live! Really looking forward to this, hope you guys are as well!

We've gotten more collab photos in, from GSK, FingersKC and I've actually gotten the sleeves from Mechs Fashion to take pictures and check the quality for myself!

sorry to ask this so close to the start of the buy - is CR confirmed as the base color?  It's a bit dark for my own personal taste but I think the set will be gorgeous and wish you the best of luck!

CR is indeed confirmed. We've checked through different options, but the big contrast between 339 and CR is perfect for this theme!  :thumb:

I have not went in on the caps, mostly because of the lack of ISO UK.  I will however be buying the deskmats, they are not to be missed.
