Thank you to dvorcol for constantly doing so much for this community!



As for the sales number, I’m completely in shock... I was hoping to just not get a flopped GB and get cancelled. Honestly it has been stressing me how it would do. It was constantly in my head that it’d either do poor or good enough to hit MOQ. Never did I think I would’ve had these numbers for the day 1 sale. When I found out, I was honestly at a loss for words. Thank you for everyone’s support.

"Cutting down the base kit, I moved the 1.25 shift to the international/iso kit. That shift is usually used in place of the 2.25 shift with the <> or \| key next to it in ISO"

I was obviously talking about the misaligned arrow lol, on top of the text?
To the left or no text at all.

Oh yes, you are correct. Woops, that KLE Program for that picture did not put that up correctly. My bad on that part. It will be printed like this:


Apologies on not catching that earlier

Same. However, the ß key looks way off. The symbol is too thin compared to all other keys. Don't know if it's final already or still can be changed, but worth pointing out.
For example (just because I'm using it right now), the ß symbol used in the Royal Navy NorDe kit would fit better.

Woops, I should’ve addressed that! I was aware of that issue. The picture of the international kit is very scuffed and is done through KLE file converter. AI files being sent to manufacturer uses the same line-width and font throughout (and some of the defects from that picture will be fixed).

Hey! Thank you for the support. There is a planned collab with LuxeCables but that’s going to be a bit late. I’ll likely reopen up my IC or update here when he’s ready to take orders!

Is there no support for a 1.5u control key for HHKB layouts?

In my first or second IC form (don't remember), there were about 3 people who wanted it out of 500+, and ultimately in the final kitting, I decided to leave it out. Also this exact kitting helped me get KBDFans to 99 retail, which was my ideal price. Sorry about that (especially to the HHKB users)!

Will be green modifier keys be dye-subbed green or will the actual plastic be colored like gmk, sa etc?

I only have one ePBT set, 2048 and alignment is so so, but also compared with gmk the spacebars are a millimeter or so shorter, pretty annoying.
(so much that set is laying in a box)..
Also if my memory serves me ePBT keycaps don't go as low as gmk so at least on my old Zephyr I would see under the caps which I couldn't with gmk on the same board.

Normally I would have walked away when I saw ePBT, but it so green and tempting I just wanted to ask and see if anyone know if these problems have been resolved yet?

- This will be reverse dye-sub, so it will not be ABS like GMK. However, in the past, ePBT has done relatively well color matching, but I will not say that it will be "actual plastic like GMK/SA (ABS)"

- As for spacebars, I BELIEVE they have improved their spacebar molds drastically and at least the two sets that I've received in hand from their recent drops, there is a noticeable improvement.

- As for how low the keycap sits, that is likely due to warping. I believe a majority of dye-subs (including CRP) sits relatively higher than GMK due to this, but I do think it is not noticeable as prior. The more recent ones (Ivory/Cool Kids) have shown signs of improvements compared to even my ePBT GOK BoW set.

From what I've seen from previous GBs, some vendors will ship out deskmats earlier if you buy them separately. I do not have an estimated date for deskmats as every vendor is different.

Even with outdated data, I can tell you with 100% certainty that MOQ will be hit! If updated, I'm 99.99999999999% sure MOQ is already hit. Also, vendors are willing to add a decent amount of extras, so everything in this set will be made!  :thumb:
