First of all, here are vendor links to buy the set: 
USA - NovelKeys 
Canada: Desk Hero 
Europe - mykeyboard.eu
Oceania - Daily Clack 
Asia - zFrontier (English) 
Asia - zFrontier (Chinese) 

Renders:
Here are kit renders for you to peruse.
And here are various board renders.
All renders are by Janglad, and the novelties were created by biip.

This is a keyset inspired by the Mudbeam colorway from Hunger Work Studio.  The colors for this kit will be custom, matched to resin samples provided by HWS.  The GB will run until October 30, and the current estimate for shipping is May 2021.

Click here to check out the colors in the set compared with some GMK standard colors.  The quarter circles were sanded and the eighth circles were not.  GMK has a semi-matte finish so the ultimate result should be somewhere between those two.

Since this is, to my knowledge, the first keyset inspired by artisan keycaps there will be quite a bit of artisan support for the set.  The first artisan raffle will happen about 2 weeks after the GB is complete, and is currently slated to have caps from Artkey, Ritual Master, LazyCaps, Fraktal Caps, Hunger Work Studio, and Destroyer Caps.  PrimeCaps will also be making matching artisans, though they may not be ready for the first raffle.  All of these will be exclusive to GB participants.  Alpha Keycaps will also be participating, with details to be provided later.  Other collabs are in discussion, and if you're an artisan maker and would like to participate please get in touch!

For the artisan raffle, GB participants will get 1 entry for each base kit purchased and 1 entry for every 2 other kits purchased (no maximum limit).  The raffle will be open for at least 24hrs to make sure everybody that wants to join it has a chance, and it will be announced on my Instagram account, here, and on Reddit.

Please follow my new Instagram account for news and updates, though Iíll also post some updates here.

Here's a pic of the Artkey 4 monster caps that will be in the raffle:

Yes, the kits are priced for the lowest MOQ (100).  I would guess that for, eg, Grand Prix it's priced for 250 MOQ though I can't be certain.

Speaking of bananas ....



Banana and Blank by Fraktal Kaps.  These will be part of the artisan raffle that is exclusive to GB participants, taking place in mid-November.  As a reminder, you get 1 raffle entry per base kit purchased, and an additional entry for every 2 other kits purchased.  Cost of the artisans will vary.

More previews coming!

The Ergo kit is being updated to include one more R4c 2u, two more R4 1.5u, and two more R4 1u, all in gray.  The price for the kit will remain the same.  This will be updated on the kit renders hopefully later today.

I'm hoping to buy a lot of extras of the wire caps, but it's not guaranteed yet.  If it happens then I'd be selling those directly after the GB is fulfilled.  Once I have more definite info I'll update here.

Yes, please try to make it happen!  If you put it down I'll buy for sure. I already ordered the sets. Cheers.

One week left to buy GMK Mudbeam!  Vendor links in the first post.

Here's the deskmat design for GMK Mudbeam by Nephlock.  The GB for it will happen after the keyset GB has completed.



The artisan cap raffle is still scheduled for mid-November.  Included will be caps from Artkey, Fraktal Kaps, Ritual Master, LazyCaps, and Hunger Work Studio.  PrimeCaps might make it in, but those might be raffled separately later.

These caps are all exclusive to GB participants.  You get one raffle entry per base kit, and one entry for every 2 other kits purchased, from any vendor.

Additionally, there will be caps from Alpha Keycaps available via public (ie, not exclusive to GB participants) raffle at some point.  A few other collabs are possible, and details will be provided once they're available.

Destroyer Caps will also be in the raffle, and I should have a preview to post fairly soon for those!

We're now in the final week of the GB!

Here's a preview of the caps from Ritual Master that will be in the collab raffle (these are prototypes).  3 days left to get in on the GB!  The collab raffle will be exclusive to GB participants and will feature caps from Hunger Work Studio, Ritual Master, Artkey, LazyCaps, Fraktal Kaps, and Destroyer Caps.  PrimeCaps may be included, but might be in a separate raffle later.



Fun fact: the Speakers are inspired by Homer Simpson.

We're into the last day if you're in the eastern hemisphere!  Here's another artisan collab from Destroyer Caps.  This may be the last preview I can post before the GB ends, but there will also be caps from Hunger Work Studio, LazyCaps, and PrimeCaps that are exclusive to GB participants.

All kits will be produced.

Final day for the GB!  I don't have previews for the following caps, but there will also be Al Bumens from PrimeCaps, Meet PopsiSkulls from Hunger Work Studio, and Battle Bears, Jikininkeys from LazyCaps.  There will be around 100 total caps available in the collab raffle, and it will be 1 win per backer so that's a lot of winners!

Here's a preview of the Al Bumen by PrimeCaps for the collab raffle.  It looks like these *will* be done in time for them to be included in the big raffle!  I'll post more info on the timing once all the artisans have things ready.



I'll also post final GB numbers once they're ready.  Should be sometime this week.

Yes, you can reserve them now.  They're $3 each, plus $5 shipping in the USA.  International would be around $15.  They're being packaged by GMK as 1 of each color (gray and yellow), so if you're getting an equal number of each color then they'll come shrinkwrapped; any extra amount of a single color will come bagged.

Quick update on the artisan collab raffle: I'm waiting on the final collaborator to finish up, and I'm hoping that will happen in the next couple of days.  Once everything is ready I'll post the raffle info with prices/procedure, and the form will be up for at least 48hrs so that hopefully everybody who wants to enter gets a chance to.  Info will be posted here, on Reddit, and my Instagram account.

Ok, here are the details for the artisan collab raffle, which will be open to those who previously purchased GMK Mudbeam kits in the GB.  There are ~130 total caps available in this raffle.

The raffle will be posted sometime tomorrow, and I'll announce here, on Reddit, and in my IG page.  I will leave the form open until Friday evening, and then invoices will go out over the weekend.  Each person will be able to win only once, unless there are more caps available than entries, in which case you might be able to win two.

Preferences:

On the form you will be able to specify if there are makers that you would not like to win caps from, and you will also be able to specify an order of preference for the different makers.  The caps from each maker will be randomly assigned though.  In some cases youíll still know what you won in advance due to differences in pricing, even though itís technically blind bag.

Shipping:

I am doing fulfillment for caps from Artkey, Destroyer Caps, and Fraktal Kaps, while Hunger Work Studio, LazyCaps, PrimeCaps, and Ritual Master will be doing their own fulfillment.  This does mean that if it ends up being possible to buy multiple caps, there would likely be two separate invoices with two separate shipping charges for those.

Shipping for all makers except for HWS and PrimeCaps will be $5 in the USA, $10 to Canada, or $15 internationally.  Ritual Master additionally offers Priority Mail in the USA for $8.  Shipping for PrimeCaps wins will be $7 in the USA, $9 to Canada, or $12 internationally.  Hunger Work Studio shipping costs are determined by their e-commerce platform based on location and desired shipping service.

Caps that are available, with prices:

Artkey: Amu, Goodoo, Raiju, Skudu (3 of each available, $80 each), Two different logo caps (1 of each available, $130 each)
Iíll have a better pic of the logos tomorrow.





Destroyer Caps: RAWR (24 available, $50 each)



Fraktal Kaps: Gray Banana with blank (5 pairs availalbe, $85 each), Beige Banana with blank (5 pairs available, $85 each), Beige Banana without blank (2 available, $60 each)
The blanks are all the same design.



Hunger Work Studio: Meet Popsi-Skull (20 available, $140 each)
If you win one of these you will need to have an account on https://hungerwork.studio/ in order to check out.



LazyCaps: Battle Bear (4 available, $60 each), Jikininkey (4 available, $60 each)



PrimeCaps: Al Bumen (~12 available, $90 each)
Final inspection hasnít been done on these, so the final number available wonít be finalized for a day or two.



Ritual Master: Hive (7 available, $50 each), Speaker (5 available, $65 each), Watcher (14 available, $65 each)

Verifying orders will probably take a couple days, and then invoices will start going out hopefully Monday or Tuesday once I send the list of winners to the makers.  I can say that most (maybe all) of the people that said they'd buy multiple caps will be able to do so, and all entrants will be able to purchase something.

RNG is complete.  I'll send lists of winners to the makers in the morning, and send out invoices for Artkey, Destroyer, and Fraktal.  Every eligible entry will get at least 1 invoice.  Everyone who selected "Yes" for Destroyer Caps is getting one of those, and they didn't apply when looking at preferences.  A number of people will even receive invoices for 3 different makers!

All invoices other than LazyCaps are out now, and those should be going out tomorrow.  Unpaid invoices will be canceled sometime tomorrow and the caps re-raffled (for the ones I sent out ... the other makers might do it sooner), so make sure to check PayPal!  I hope everybody enjoys their caps!

Another brief update.  There are a handful of HWS re-raffle invoices going out today.  I should be receiving the box of Fraktal Kaps tomorrow and then I will send out all the Artkey/Destroyer/Fraktal wins.  Other makers should be doing their fulfillment soon as well.
