Re: [IC] GMK Cobalt - Artisan Collabs announced
« Reply #50 on: Mon, 11 January 2021, 14:09:43 »
The colors are so vibrant they look unreal, but I believe it should be possible.  Would love to see real life samples.

Literally stands out in a crowd of current designs.  Not sure which I like better... the full cobalt set or gray alphas.  I would most likely get both if this goes to Group Buy.

Unfortunately samples wont be possible before GB, however I am looking into our options for  advanced colour matching so that we can ensure we achieve this look.

Oh wow thank you so much for saying that, its a huge compliment and I appreciate that so much!! Going for both is a super option  :thumb:


One other thing to sneak in here, thanks to pwade3 for pointing out that I hadnt updated the IC to include the novelty explanations and had only put them in the comments, this has been added to the main OP, so if you are interested or missed that check it out!!

Not a a big fan of the cables, they look to be  very high quality, but i would of preferred blue and pink instead of gray.
And that desk mat... that so called "desk mat"... is DOPE! I love it.

This makes my eyes go funny, it's such a bright color. I think the cobalt base with a matching keyboard color would look deadly. I will be watching this- with sunglasses on.

Yes she is, the deskmat is unreal, oh if only that were possible?? Lets see what Spacecables comes up with, i am excited to see!!

Interested to see more renders on boards with other colors beside white, silver, or grey.

Anything specific? I will have at least one maybe 2 new renders for the GB post

Also the Extension kit has been trimmed back a bit to allow us to price it better to push to make MOQ!!

Hi. will the second base kit (with gray color) will be priced as the same MOQ and the monochrome one? I think more people will choose the second one over the first.

Yeah we are looking at an MOQ target of the same for both, and based on feedback the Grey alphas has been more popular but not overwhelmingly so. We are working through pricing now and as soon as I have that it will be shared.

I just received a feedback form submission that made me realize I had not updated the base kits. One early suggested change was with the inclusion of the Extensions to remove the extra tab which was done, also note the Scroll Lock and PrtSc keys have been updated to Scroll and Print.

Also thanks to that submitter, I appreciate there feedback and agree with most of what they said.

I have not specifically called this out in the IC but these base kits are quite large and are intended to achieve a wide compatibility. We cover off all the standard layouts plus the addition of full Alice spaces and HHKB 1.5u Supers!

Thanks man so much appreciated

Thank you, never thought of that, well maybe you can find an artisan or Deskmat and make it your own theme for sure!! But thanks for the kind words!


Further update, we will have a Day 1 buyers giveaway, details are currently being worked out and will be posted on the GB post. And in Discord/IG. Stay tuned

Also for Artisan collectors want to confirm that DEΔGcaps and GSK  are on board for a collab, timing is not yet determined but it will happen.

I had hoped the GB post would be up but it is still awaiting approval since last night,  so sharing here, this is a render though be aware, some colours might be different, I expect the grey to be darker.
