[MK IC] Blank Keycap Sets...(Mock Ups Added)
« on: Thu, 19 November 2015, 15:30:15 »
If we could get some high quality Blank ABS sets in say Cherry profile, would you be up for it?

If so, please by all means weigh in on this...

We are considering Blank Full 108 key sets in:

Black -


Dark Grey -


White?

Mockup coming soon?

(Special thanks to the engineers at GMK for providing these mockups)

What is your definition of high quality? What about thickness? And cap selection?

I think 00 is talking about thick like GMK and JTK sets, but blank. I think this would be a good seller, but me personally, I have enough blank sets to keep me happy for a little while.

ABS would tend to shine.  As these are to be blank, would PBT be better?
"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

We have had requests for Blank GMK key sets...and while ABS would shine, GMK is good quality ABS keycap in official Cherry profile...

We are not limiting ourselves to only ABS sets in the long run, but we need to start somewhere. And since GMK only does ABS...

I'd love to get my hands on a blank set in dark grey to try out the Cherry Profile. What's the potential price range look like, though?

Yes please. It would be nice to have a set of 1.5u keys for Ergodox users though.
