The mats are all incredible but I think the Fuji one is my final choice. Like the mountain, the mat has stood the test of time (and made it through many manu changes)

Unfortunately I had to pair down kitting a lot when we moved from KAT to ePBT, and that was one of the kits removed

May I know a rough estimate on the shipping time based on this data? I'm thinking about buying this but waiting almost a year (like GMK sets) to receive a set is not for me :(

It does not look like we will receive an ETA until after the group buy ends but ePBT sets have been successfully shipping within 6 to 8 months lately.

Aesthetic will definitely be coming back at some point, but all vendors will have extras available once this ships so keep your eyes peeled  :D

Re: [GB] ePBT Aesthetic | First Round of Samples Have Arrived!
« Reply #33 on: Wed, 05 January 2022, 17:31:07 »
    Apologies for not updating here as frequently. Got some great news though!

    • Deskmats have been shipping out to customers, most should have them in hand now
    • Asero artisan is in production
    • I received samples today!

    My thoughts on the samples

    The bad:
    • green is way off
    • pink is closer than the green but still too dark/not pastel enough
    • F row alignment is too low
    • Some of the 1u icons seem to be horizontally off-centered

    those are fixable issues though.

    The good:
    • reverse dyesub looks phenomenal. no streaking or fading or alignment issues.
    • white looks good
    • purple looks close-ish to me, certainly think it looks fine, but will be a question for the colorimeter
    • most keys look well-aligned
    • novelties came out fantastic

    Some pics for y'all. Take all colors with a grain of salt, color matching through pics on a monitor is not going to give you anything close to accuracy. I will be sending these samples off to CannonKeys to use their colorimeter for closer analysis of the colors. Again, I fully expect we will need a round 2 for at least the pink and green, but I'm very happy to see forward progress here.

Yes, apologies for not updating sooner. I received round two of color samples last month and they were approved by myself and CannonKeys. We asked for an update on production status earlier today.

Minor update everyone - not bad news IMO

Some inconsistencies between the production templates and the renders were found. In every case we're going with the illustrator files as it accurately reflects how the set should look. My apologies for not catching these in the renders but I don't think anyone will be worse for wear over these changes.









  • The 1.5u backspace key in the 40s kit was not shown in the renders because it was a late addition, but will be included with the set. This is so 12.5u 40% boards can work with a standalone alphas kit.
  • The numpad kits' "divide" and "multiply" symbols will use more traditional icons.
  • The ユ and コ symbols were swapped in the renders, but will be correct in production
