Introduction

All the precious moments of the past stuck in various places around the world and in the luggage you haven't touched in years. Destinations, relationships and family all preserved in souvenirs and smoke covered denim jeans. GMK Lancaster is a recollection of a time in history and in our own lives filled with adventure, boarding passes, heartstrings and cheap booze. The reckless abandon and anticipation to go somewhere or see someone. It's these memories that find us at 4am when we can't sleep or when we hear the roar of a train passing by.

Specifications and Description

Keycaps are made by GMK Electric Design in Germany.
Keycaps are made from high quality, 1.5mm, double-shot ABS plastic.
Keycaps use MX stems and are compatible with any keyboard that uses Cherry MX style switches.
Deskmats are 900mm X 400mm X 3mm with printed cloth top, rubberized bottom, and stitched edges.

Products shown will be sold via a Group Buy by your local vendors around the world. Please refer to vendor information pages regarding Group Buy details.

Product images shown are renders. Final product colors may vary, especially if you are viewing on an uncalibrated monitor or device. Gaming Monitors that use TN panels are especially inaccurate for viewing colors. Your smartphone is probably the most color accurate device unless you have a special monitor. Kingk22 and I have calibrated the renders based on this recommendation.

Since you've got an R4 backslash in the ISO kit, you probably don't need it in the base kit.  Or vice versa.

Yup I just noticed that like the moment I posted it lol. I plan on taking it out of the base kit to try to get the price of the base kit down.

I think the rows are off here (assuming this is a 40s kit) and should be

R2
R3
R3
R4
R4
R4

I would also suggest removing the lock key, adding a second 1u shift for ortho support, and adding 1.25u and 1.75u enter keys. Come by the 40s discord if you want more help with this!

Oh gosh this is beautiful. I'd had a similar set in mind to do but this is just so lovely and perfectly done - the burgundy, amber, cream, and charcoal are such an unexpectedly pretty combination, at once feeling luxurious with leather, brass, and velvet, and homey, like a pipe smoke and book-filled home library. That dual feeling remind me of both the professor's study and the train ride in the Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe.

Thank you for that immersive reaction! I am so glad that it's giving off those feelings for you. It means a lot to me, especially from a designer who is so good with colors like yourself. Thank you again!

I added a section just below the kit renders that labels the keys with units.

Also changed the 40's kit per the provided suggestion. Hopefully it suits 40's users needs.

Also added the novelties. There is actually another novelty concept that I am working on for the bottom row but I left it out for now as I want to make sure it's not blasphemous by GMK standards.

PA gang checking in here too! Love the set OP, please consider adding the extra B to the spacebar kit! It just makes much more sense there, even if you leave the regular colored small bars in the 40's kit, since you have the 2.25u & 2.75u accent bars in the spacebar kit as it stands.

Why "1929?" What's the significance of that year?
I know Lancaster was founded in 1729...
I'm familiar with the Bicentennial Wagon Train Pilgrimage to Pennsylvania...
Is there a specific postcard this set uses as inspiration for colors? I'm just curious.

The train station in Lacaster, which is the backdrop inspiration for this set, was opened on April 28th 1929. The interior building featured these kinds of colors. The lancaster sign that hung in the lobby was a burgundy with gold accents. The walls were a creamy/smoky beige, and supporting beams and molding featured the darker grays. I moddified the colors a good bit to reflect the color palette but in a more rustic tone to show the age while retaining that appeal. The appeal being a pretty low budget inspjration of art deco at the time.

Re: [IC] GMK Lancaster (Feedback update 12/7/20)
« Reply #35 on: Mon, 07 December 2020, 19:06:33 »
Just a quick update based on the feedback i've gotten!

1. I moved the B key to the spacebars kit from the 40's kit. This makes a lot of sense because split users will already have to get the spacebars kit so forcing them to get the 40's kit which would be useless to them did not make sense. To be honest this was more of a slip using an old KLE than anything as I consciously did this for my last set. So thank you for bringing it to my attention so it could be fixed

2. The ISO kit has been added to the base kit instead of being a standalone kit. At first I thought separating the two would be a benefit to lower the cost of the base kit for everyone that wouldn't make use of the ISO keys. But it turns out that this actually punishes ISO users more than anything as the standalone kit is more expensive by itself than just adding it to the base kit. This also ensures that it will get made as well as increase the aftermarket value of the base kit for those who get it. I think this change makes a lot of sense after understanding all of those things. So thank you for that feedback and thank you KingK22 for explaining this benefit to my non-iso brain lol.

3. Novelties will be getting a new R4. I am still working on them to make sure they are up to spec. I want to avoid the constant changes that occurred in my last keyset due to going back and forth with GMK on the limitations and line sizes. For now, the shown novelties are up to spec, but there are more to come.

4. I received less feedback than I had imagined regarding language support. Seems that the audience is still primarily basic English alphas users. That being said, the most requested language so far was Hangul! So... I am heavily considering adding Hangul support as I have always said that I want my sets to support languages without necessarily being themed around them. I have not decided if I am going to add this as a separate kit like I did in the past or if I am going to attempt to run a second base kit. It will largely depend on the final data of the IC phase of the project to determine which is more feasible and beneficial. Please let me know your thoughts in the Google Form though!

5. I am still reaching to find collaboration opportunities! I intend to have artisans and possibly other collabs running along side the set.

Thank you all for your feedback so far! It's been incredibly helpful and it shapes the set to YOUR needs. Please let me know any and all thoughts you have, positive or negative. Thank you again for you continued support and understanding!

I believe a R4 pipe key is missing, it is needed to pair with that 1.25u Shift key. Also, ISO US may has fewer keys than ISO UK if you consider lowering the cost a bit, I may be wrong about the price part.

fixed the R4 \| in the base kit.

Currently reaching out to makers for artisans and working on sprucing up the novelties.

Feedback from the google form suggested that the Novelties kit could be a little stronger. I am currently working on making a more comprehensive novelty kit with more diversity!

This isn't a huge update since I have been pretty busy over the holidays but I wanted to let everyone know that this is till being actively polished as we speak and that there is more to come. Also to get front page exposure because that's really why anyone puts out small updates.

I have added Last Padawan as my US vendor now. Really excited to work with them as their communication and support has been unprecedented! They also have a very talented artist on their team that is working on a 4th deskmat design. Their interest and art style is going to be a welcome addition to the IC and, with your approval, the GB.

I am also still working on the novelties. I really want these to be perfect so I've been taking the time to work with some other people in our community as well as becoming more proficient with SVG rendering myself.

Still looking at collaborations as well. I do have a cable maker so far. Myself and Last Padawan are looking at manufacturers right now for, possibly, the collectible post cards that were mentioned in the Google Form. I have some really cool ideas for that implementation but we will wait to se before I make any promises.

So yeah sorry for the lack of updates. Just been busy. But there is a lot to come still so thank you for your time!

Oh, it's beautiful. I usually prefer icons for mods but goddamn this colorway is crisp for the text. Looks very clean!

I'd like to see renders with a black keyboard.

Iíd like to echo this please, and ask a bit wider: please render with a few more differently coloured boards?

I canít quite picture what this would look good on.

On its own, this is one of the best looking sets Iíve seen in a while, really special, and different to most sets Iíve seen apart from Thai Tea.

I just reached out to get some more renders done. This has been a popular request so I am going to try to get a nice variety done.

Thank you! I don't have the Pantone equivalents for these colors and will be using RAL since I intend to run this set as a GMK set, which is their native color matching system.
