You may want to add a field for email in the interest check form, for those of us who aren't regular visitors to the forum and might miss a group buy.

Edit: I'm seeing what appears to a minor spacing issue with the first 7 elements on row 5 of the table on the deskmats. The boxes appear shifted up a small amount.

And I will add an email field for those who might miss the group buy, thank you for the suggestion. And yes thank you for pointing that out I will be updating the alignment for these mats later today!

I want to recommend some changes to the 2 R4 1u novelties periodic elements. This key is already used to cover R1 so I suggest replacing it with a new novelty to avoid repetition.

Yes novelties will be updated soon, I will be replacing the R4 novelties and also perhaps adding in some others or an ISO enter nov!

Novelties Update -
changed the skull & bones to toxic hazard symbols, as well as added an alpha Hg key and ISO enter
Reasoning for changing skull & bones novelty: (Cultural reasons)
I would like to keep them or at least have one but I am not sure at the moment concerning these cultural reasons
I will have to do more research on the topic before finalizing the icons.

You can look at GMK Boneyard, Skull and Bones are fine. Can we have skull&bones back at R4 to replace the duplicated periodic Hg since it's already in R1?

Oh is it possible to remove like one/ both of the icon thingy on the bottom left and right (especially the right) on the deskmat ? It looks a bit too claustrophobic atm, and having a bit of empty negative space is good! And for the novities, I think most of them are a tad too big, besides the Hg ones.

For the deskmat I chose to go all in and fill the space instead of having empty space, I didnít want it to be half empty half full, I gues if that makes sense, I also did like the space right next to the focus element because it gives a good space to have cables/macropads that wouldnít be obstructed by the design, but I do understand where youíre coming from because at first I also wanted to leave it relatively empty. This far it seems like the desk mats are generally liked. I may however make a more minimalist one if thatís something youíre interested in.

For the novelties, I will bring them in a bit but I will have to make sure everything is to GMK standard, but thanks for letting me know!

Seems like red is really popular (just as popular as the white) therefore I will most likely add red accents to base or to an accent kit with both accents depending on what people would be interested to see!

I would also lean to the red alternative, but IMO it is because the white accent is too close in colour to the alphas, and is not immediately visually distinguishable at first glance. In the renders it doesn't look nearly bright enough to be WS2 to me.

Agreed. I also would like to see the red alternative as accent color.

I have some suggestions about the novs:
_ R1: Great
_ R2: I think a mod color novelty for Tab key is enough, I rarely or never see anyone using an accent novelty for it.
_ R3: The alpha color novelty "Hg" seems redundant, I wonder where it will fit in popular layouts. Also, this key is repeated from R1 so I think it's better removed. The chemistry bottle also is repeated.
_ R4: The 2 R4 1u mod "Hg" key are also repeated, please consider moving the chemistry bottle from R2 and R3 to R4 to replace these 2 "Hg", then turn 2 nav columns to 1 nav column. The 1.25u mod Skull&Bones are also repeated from R1, in this case I suggest replacing these 2 with the 1.25u version of the 1.5u key on the right (you'll have a pair of 1.25u and a pair of 1.5u with the same figure)
