I wanted to get grey. But then, Feng added titanium-grey. So, I PMed him to change my request to titanium-grey. I thought titanium would be darker.

Apparently, we don't know what color grey is darker than the other yet.

I'm actually really thinking of changing my request to green or black. I'm not sure yet.

neither of them are a dark gray. that is what I was trying to say earlier.
a kmac titanium is actually closer to the blue grey that the hammer cases offered.
I also changed my order to black because of this.

Here's a picture of green anodizing. This sample is a little bit dark, but it can be made brighter when it applies to the cases.

That looks nice!

Any way to compare the two grey colors?

Feng, I have ordered 1 case and made the payment.
However, I can't see my name on your order list.
Please check my order!

I PMed you about changing my order to titanium-grey. I thought it was a darker color than regular grey. Im not sure which is darker. You didn't PM me back saying you got my request.

Do you have any examples of the differences between these colors?

The logo on design #2 would differ from that on desigh #1. For design #2, we don't want to put the logo on the side as where it is on design #1 because design #2 has a straight line across all the way.

So we decided to put the logo on the bottom right above the poker weights. Basically it would look like this: 34530-0

Seems like we won't be able to hit 20 MOQ, if that's the case, the production will be start on Sep 15th. Really had a lot of expectations on this case due to its incredible quality, but too many Poker cases are being for sale lately.

I personally think if that true titanium color was made available it would possibly draw in quite a few more orders. From imsto's thread:

Doesn't the case in the post above yours look very similar to the colour of those spacebars? I'd say they were pretty similar allowing for some differences due to lighting.

I'm probably gonna shoot for a grey one. Feel like a black one would be too subtle if there's such a thing.

The grey, titanium grey, and silver look too similar in the pictures.

I'm thinking I should change my order to black.

What do you guys think?

Based on the picture, I would think so. Titanium grey almost looks like silver imo.

From a PM, feng said the design #2 picture is called grey here, and he mentioned that this gray is not as dark as the titanium grey you see on the Hammer 60% GB or on KMACs.

So, the titanium-grey is only slightly darker than regular grey. Is this right??

Agreed. At this price it's hard to justify purchase a color sight unseen.
Spot on. A high quality product, pretty expensive and terrible marketing / advertising. To not have quality color swatches for every color is a sure fire way to keep sale quantities low. How can you expect someone to spend $250 to $300 with the information you are providing on colors. The tiny samples with poor lighting don't cut it.

Personally I like the RAL color chart that has been used it the past. It gives a uniform swatch of each color and also the RGB numbers. Is there a way of getting that here?

Thanks,
John

Hello Feng,

I sent you a pm. I wanted to see if I can make a change on my order to black.

You didn't get back to me yet on one of my previous PMs.

I want to see if this change can be made before orders are finalized on the 15th.

Thanks.
