Note: Keeb renders are done under different lighting and can change the way they appear, this correlates with real life. Since I did not do my render based off the sample the texuture may not be accurate but the colors are correct to the Pantone book.



Deskmat(WIP):





Here is the colors I will be moving forward with:

Alpha keys - Pantone 2975 C is a light blue

Mod text - PANTONE 230 C is a pink

Mods keys/alpha text - PANTONE 4146 C is a dark blue

Alt Alpha keys - PANTONE 230 C is a pink

Accent keys - PANTONE 267 C is a purple






Updates:

Ok, Zfrontier came in clutch we have Quotes pricing coming soon, but do to getting it so late might push GB back a couple days like 1 or 2 days once I have official pricing!
More
As of now, I have been unable to reach Zfrontier, which has been an issue for a minute (its the reason it took 6 months to update the IC) with that being said
 I have sent them the stuff needed for quotes, and they are known for coming in clutch last minute.
Incase, this is not one of those times I have already talked it out with my vendors, and they are all flexible to the possibility.
I will make sure I update here as soon as I hear something back. Since it is the Holidays as well HAPPY Holidays!!!
I hope you all stay safe and enjoy your time with your loved ones or whoever you may be with.
This has been a tough year for many, and I would like to give my condolences to anyone who lost anyone I lost an Uncle to Covid, so make sure you are staying safe. Anyways, I am super excited to share this with you and hope you enjoy!!!

Icon Mods Coming Soon!!!!!

06/06/2020: Hi quick update to fill you guys in. I have updated the colors but need to redo all the renders. That will be improvements from the last and will look amazing. All the colors are now color matched to Pantones and the production file v1 is almost done. Once I finish this I will do a major update with things like deskmats, Kittings, colors, and other goodies also hopefully I will have a sample of the novelty spacebar I bet many of you are excited about. Sorry for the radio silence for so long.

10/12/2020 BIG UPDATE, here is the test spacebar samples (photos of it at least)

Note: When I ask for the spacebar 4 months ago, I was still refining my colors (I still am, just waiting to have the samples in hand) so that is why the space bar is Dark blue the point was too show that they could do a Nice reverse dye-sub. These photos are from Keyreative and ZFrontier. When doing the testing the original (thin lines on the right) they notice the colors didn't shows that well, so to bring out the color more they thickened the line width, but this also caused an issue to where not everything lines up but on the final version I will correct that. I am still waiting as they didn't ship yet due to past Chinese Holiday which just ended, so I am expecting to start getting stuff soon. After that I will update my renders, and release the official kitting( I do understand it seems kind of backwards to not have the kitting out when I originally decided to do it this way I was under the expectations the samples would only take a month so it would been fine. Other things also popped up IRL, and with that said I have not forgotten or given up on this set I am even more excited than I was before.)

10/29/2020: ANOTHER BIG UPDATE

I have decided to use my Pantones as my basis for color, since the samples are taking so long and if any changes happen I will make sure to communicate that clearly as it happens. I would like to apologize for the lack of updating and the lack of being involved. I am truly excited for this set and I really can't wait to share it with you both kitting and updated renders will be posted by next Friday I hope.

Hey, regarding: Phat Mods Icons Redone

- what has been updated?
- will there only be 3 arrow keys of each for pink and blue in that set?

That blue on the dark taunts me like mad, it looks soooo good.

Hopefully they'll update the images to reflect each kit instead of just using the same image for every one. I want to be sure I'm getting all the keycaps I need and in the right colours. I assume "phat mods redone" are the text mods since the icon mods specifically say "icon" but it's not super obvious.

Please get candy keys to put the correct image for each kit.  It is very difficult to put a large order together correctly.
