I expect more orders once patch kit is available to accommodate ISO and winkeyless option hopefully.

If you saved the link the form gave you at the end you can use that to edit your order entries. Otherwise just place a new order with all your info and everything you want and the old ones will get deleted.

Ohh they get deleted. I'm going to fill a third form with both old forms combined and save the url this time. Thanks for clarifying.

If that is an option you'll have another order from me.
It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

Any interest?

As I already said on DT .... honestly I am not a big fan of it. It's just too extravagant for me.

And the fact that I had to google "Aurebesh" to know what it's supposed to be, speaks for itself I think. Maybe I am not nerdy enough, but I have seen the classic Star Wars Triology like 20 times, read a lot of SW books and played many SW video games and still haven't heard of that word before (maybe it's different in German...).

But of course my personal opinion doesn't mean you shouldn't try it!

What MOQ are we talking about? Does this help towards the 400 or would this be totally separate?

This would help towards MOQ, we just need to meet 400 blank sets and then they can be divided up between the different printed/blank orders.

I'm up for anything that will get me my blank set for < $75.

I have no issue with having extra abs iso keys around.


EDIT:

Is it possible to dyesub the entire key a darker black? I heard of only swiss studios or w/e having that machinery/technique though.

I would pay a straight $100 for that.

On second thought, would there be any way to get legends where the main legend is regular ansi and there's a secondary legend with these characters?  Similar to Miami Odessa or many of the other multilingual sets you've made.

Only problem I can see with that is that the Odessa set had different coloured legends. Black in black with sub legends would probably be pretty hard to read.

Ivan is there anyway to get an extra blank (space bar row key) with this so it can actually fit my kbt pure pro?
I'm trying to get cherry profiled keycaps but I want a whole set that actually fits.

Best bet would be to buy another numpad from some tenkeyless user.

US sublegends on Aurebesh? I don't think it look good, this is more a hardcore SW set for novelty sake.
I might come up with some other font options, maybe something more modern normal fonts.

400 MOQ period, so anything ordered helps make the MOQ as it's all one MOQ for the black keysets. Printed option is just an extra step.

Who buys keycaps from this factory other than GH resellers?  For a MOQ of 400 I'd be expecting at least a couple boards on the market to carry them.

You are still far more successful with this gb than I was with my failed POM one.  And that one only had a MOQ of 200.

Really not sure... I can't think of a single keyboard that comes with these exact keycaps. The Cherry profile ones on Choc mini, Neo and Plum seem to come from somewhere else as they have some small differences in the inside of the keycap on the corners and such. I wish I did know that source since they have 1.5, 1.75 and windowed keys.

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

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!

I hope the final set will look like this :

Absolutely, it's a ninja dyesub PBT keyset with Cherry profile :thumb:

or like this if mixed with Imsto grey/gray set :


Edited: I added more themes

since these will be GMK, are they PBT? thick or the thin PBT we find from GMK on the beige printed PBT keys?

Well, will have. It's a little Christmas present to myself. I haven't used a mech. keyboard since early 2000s when we had an IBM keyboard. Ever since then I've been on annoying keyboards, right now I'm typing on a scissor style wireless. It sucks...

So excited!

Last question to you guys, do these group buys get canceled a lot of the time? I saw a few threads marked canceled, so I was wondering the chances of this one making it?

But because this buy has a MOQ of 400, its slim

We've gotten 300 MOQ in the past and on things that seemed way less likely like Russian sets and white/purple doubleshot. Maybe it's more of a push at 400 but I believe it can happen. Still waiting on some interested vendors to confirm amounts.

Must… buy… more…

I am planning on placing an order. For those saying "well just place it now the moneys not due yet" I can't. I am unsure if I'll have 75 then. (aint that pathetic).

I will be getting either black on black, or the side laser etched if you can get them.

GabeN willing some venders step up on this I really want these keycaps.
