Ordered.

I've been wanting the black dye sub for a while.

I thought I wouldn't see another GB for this for at least another 6 months.

Black on Black should come out looking similar to how it was with the Realforce:

Indeed it is not a high visibility.
Order won't go to production without the MOQ of 400 total sets ordered. I have not made an order with the factory yet, only made sure it is possible.

Why not OEM? Because Cherry is BETTER!

The only profile/cap really worth getting is Cherry profile.  Cherry caps, be they ABS or PBT are nice and thick and have a nice profile to use.  OEM caps are thin and crappy and have a less pleasant profile.  The point was that Cherry>all.

"Cherry is BETTER!"

Words to live by.

I always think OEM profile is a waste. Its almost cherry profile but taller. What's the point?

I'm not opposed to this, but if four people split a blank set, it would only be ~$14 and they'd each get their 4 needed blanks.

If you guys want to pony up $25K to make molds I can see about them.

Sets are compatible with any boards that follow ANSI 104/87/61 standard. If your keyboard uses same physical layout as Cherry G80-3000***US/EU or Filco MJ2 you should have full coverage. Other physical layouts will provide partial coverage.

Finally i can replace the italic font

Payment wouldn't be due until shortly after the order close. Once orders have closed I will send you an invoice which will have it's due date.
imsto is a member here who assist to organize the manufacture with the Chinese factory. Since they were first to offer these particular Cherry profile PBT keycap it is what most people refer to them by. This buy have nothing to do with GMK.
Accented Latin character is fine. If that is the correct for your address it's not a problem. Just need to stick to Latin character and not use other like Cyrillic, Hangul, Chinese, etc. as the postage labels don't like it. You can put address in other character set in addition to Latin if you wish for secondary address label to aid local delivery.

Heh at least they can't get the caps lock colour wrong ;)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Yes and they'll probably ship 1-3 months after production starts.

400 orders is very very likely to happen imo, because A LOT of people have been waiting for something like this for a very very very very very long time. I've personally been waiting for this to be produced for year and there are others who have been waiting even longer.

I don't know dude..last round the MOQ was like 25 and it barely made it.  400 MOQ is a lot more than you think.  It is going to be very very hard to reach.  There may be a 100 of you who have been waiting, but not 400..this is a very small market after all.

If MOQ is 400 then why not go with BSP? If it is because they don't have 1.25 mods or something weird then just get those from imsto and everything else from BSP.
