US pricing:

Base kit: $129.99
Novelty kit(tens): $53.99
Spacebar kit: $25.99
Deskmats: $17.99
HIBI brass artisan: $60.00

All pricing below:



GMK Orange Boi is co-designed by me and Typo.mk. This set is inspired by orange kitties everywhere (including my own orange boi Richard). One of the goals of this set is to raise money for cats in need! If GMK Orange Boi makes it through group buy successfully, a portion of designer profits will be donated to The Odd Cat Sanctuary, a feline rescue organization that was started to help kittens and cats (as well as an occasional dog) with "challenges"  or that have been neglected. Check out their website to learn more and to admire all of the adorable kitties that theyíve rescued!

To follow GMK Orange Boi on social media, follow us on Instagram (Ty, me), and feel free to join my Discord server
.

KITS

**Note that novelty designs will use UV printing for the second color. For all novelty caps, the cream color will be doubleshot and the pastel pink color will be UV printed.

DESKMATS

Types of Orange Boi deskmat designed by Aly from okeydokey studio



Box Cats deskmat designed by Ty



HIBI CAP

Brass, rose gold PVD with dual enamel fill




BOARD RENDERS

Keep in mind that slight color differences in board renders can be caused by differences in lighting - the lighting in which we are looking at the IRL color references, as well as the lighting used in the render environments.

VENDORS


Group buy starts March 1, 2022 at the following vendors (will update with direct shop links as they go live):

US: CannonKeys
Canada: DeskHero
UK: ProtoTypist
EU: MyKeyboard.eu
SEA: iLumkb
OCE: DailyClack
China and the rest of the world: zFrontier (China link, international link)

Obviously GMK lead times are not ideal right now but we are sticking with GMK for this set for a few reasons:

- Crispness and clarity of doubleshot legends since the colors used in this set don't have a TON of inherent contrast

- Strong desire for cherry profile

- Since we ruled out dye sub, we'd need UV printed novelties for maximum cuteness!

The estimated ship date from GMK is Q1 2023, though it's possible that Q2/Q3 2023 is more realistic.

I ordered base and novelties from CannonKeys.  I wanted to add desk mats, but I don't see them there...  Is there a deskmat vendor for the US?

For CannonKeys you have to order the deskmat for GBs separately since they ship far in advance of the GMK set and CK likes to not having large items taking up valuable space in their inventory storage.

Thanks y'all!

It's a bummer to pay separate shipping.  Shipping is more than the mat, guess I'll have to skip it.

It might be worth looking into if itís cheaper for you to bundle it at Zfrontier. I THINK they combine desk mats and keycap orders so you donít pay double shipping

Looks like a lot of people are only getting deskmats and novelty kits, which suggests there will be a demand for base kit extras later on.
