The Colors

Alpha Base: RAL 075 90 20
Alpha Legend: RAL 050 50 60

Mod Base: RAL 350 20 15
Mod Legends: RAL 050 60 60

Accent Base: RAL 050 50 60
Accent Legend: RAL 350 20 15


Note that the alpha legends and the mod legends are two different shades of orange, the reasons for this were twofold, one it adds a bit more diversity in the oranges in the set, and it also helps with the contrast.

I set up a profile for my camera in lightroom using an xrite color checker, but I'm far from an expert. These are in no way guaranteed to be 100% color accurate, but should be used to give an added idea of what the color should be in addition to the renders




Renders

I did these renders with a variety of lighting, to hopefully give a rough idea of how these colors will fluctuate based on your particular desk setup.

Here we have a burgundy Campine mk. VII by Panc.Co

Next up is a black J01 by Proto[Typist] Keyboards

After that we've got the orange alphas on a bluegrey Haus by Handengineering.

Last is a Mech27, mostly in silver, one in poly. Some with base, some with orange alphas.

What's that? More renders?
How about some luxurious suede?



Or perhaps a towel material, so you can use your keyboard to dry off.


Foam for an extra quiet board?


Or maybe you'd prefer an open sound.


Or if money is no object, maybe a board made out of topaz.



If you wanna keep tabs on this project and more, feel free to join my discord server!

Thanks to pnkpanther, Dalesnail, and Nathanalphaman for all the rendering tips, alexatpanc for for some reason believing in me, and everyone who made me actually pursue bringing this stupid joke to life.

No thanks to jacobsmirror. You did this. You're responsible.

Don't let your memes be dreams:

Considering we're still waiting on mats for Taro, I'm not getting my hopes up for news on official Thai Tea mats any time soon.

Did a fresh render last night to help show how good I think this set can look on poly or e-white, hope you like it.

Additionally, I'm happy to announce that both Hello Caps and Death Caps have committed to making matching artisans!

We won't be seeing them for a while as I want the match to be as good as possible, so they'll be producing the caps after we get samples, but they've both signed on to make these caps.  ;D

Colors are perfect for a 70s leather trench coat.  Orange and slightly purple were quite popular if I remember correctly. Will buy most kits.   :thumb:

257041-0

also getting porsche vibes.  Something retro futuristic about these color to me.

By the way we are officially over halfway to MOQ on base!

In America, some people want base GMK Thai Tea with regular alphas.

But we need to make sure the tent is big enough for GMK Thai Tea with Alt Alphas and Spacebars.

My God, I need this.

Today's render features some Panc40 keyboards to show that we've got some physical support for ortho layouts if that's up your alley! The GB for those lil guys is also currently live over at Panc.co!

Now in terms of announcements, numbers are looking good (just sent them over to dvorcol), but we've decided to extend the GB a couple weeks.

While we're not worried about MOQs, we want to make sure everyone who wants this set has the opportunity to pick it up, and we thought going a little past Christmas would be the best way to allow that.

As such, the GB will be extended to January 4!

That's MOQ on everything folks!

Thanks so much for making this happen, have a happy holiday season!

Only remaining goal is to hit 500 base kits sold to unfortunately make me eat denim on stream, which I'm getting more and more nervous about.

Make it unsoaked raw denim so you get a healthy dose of indigo dye  :p

Will you be chasing it down with a cup of Thai Tea? :)

It should be no surprise it did well, people in the past that didn't believe got burned :) (e.g. Taro, Analog Dreams)

Picked up 2 sets to contribute to denim recycling.
