Dramas aside, I appreciate that it's quite a unique design, with a creative execution of the theme, with evident effort and thought given to the icon mods and novelties. I also appreciate you taking the time to answer various concerns by other members of the community, and hope you can feedback to the original designer,  further areas of improvement that can be done with the legends that several ppl have mentioned. i.e. Caps Lock instead of Capslock. Suggest changing from 'Win' to 'Sys' term as well.
Not the biggest fan of all-in-one kitting either.

Also are there any renders of the deskmat design with the keyset? I'd like to see how it complements the set as a whole.
I'm also worried about banding issues with that gradient in the picture you've shown in the post.


I also am really uncomfortable with the name you're choosing to operate with. Wouldn't you prefer to choose something much less similar to keeb.io and make an original brand for yourself?

Please don't be offended by my comments. I actually like the idea, am interested in the profile, and like the gradient as well. If the China GB has already happened, do show us some real life pictures, that would be very helpful to this IC.
+1 to the above. If this set/profile has already ran before, then photos of prior products will allay people's concerns about the quality of a profile/manufacturer that people here are unfamiliar with. I appreciate the few photos of colour matched sample, but those are blanks- are there any other sample keycaps with the legends on them, so we can see how that contrast and clarity looks? Photos of the underside /thickness of caps will also be appreciated by others here too.

Agreed, pictures of previous runs would be great.

I found this zfrontier post after someone linked me a taobao link - the printing quality seems somewhat grainy.

If this set has already run and you're producing more after this round of GB, please consider redoing the text legends. I would actually consider purchasing this if the "CapsLock" had a space so it's "Caps Lock". Also, the crescent moon shape beside every mod legend somehow just seems way too close to me, visually. Make the text smaller and give it room to breathe, especially for Tab and Shift.

The font size on the stepped caps is also way bigger than all the other mods. It's kind of jarring.

Thanks for these very good feedback!

We will change "Capslock" to "Caps Lock" and 'Win' to "Sys".

Regarding the Kit, our manufacture Drunken Ink does not provide us the option to place separate orders for different modules.

Regarding the sample kit, Chinese New Year holiday just ended and we are trying our best to push manufacture for delivering us a complete sample. We will share more photos once we have them.

Also, we have more than enough orders from our trial run in China region and MOQ has been met.

Please forgive me if I miss quote any related questions!

We completely understand peoples concern here.

We will definitely share more exclusive pictures regarding JDA and this set soon.

Hope that will ease people's concerns and feel more comfortable to join the group buy after this bumpy ride.

Our China region trial run ended around Feb, 10th. This global group buy and trial run are scheduled to be manufactured together (hopefully on March 2021). Due to the delay of CNY and pile of orders, manufacture just resumed our sample making process. We will provide our sample picture soon!

Hi there, no offense taken and we really appreciate the feedbacks. We will change "CapsLock" into "Caps Lock", thanks for bringing it up!
