this set have been submitted to GMK later about three months or more than miami night ,this set will be on sale late this month
but i think the miami night have been submitted already and paid for by ivan ,may be something unexpected happened ,what we need to do is waiting patiently and ivan will give us instant update if necessary

1,about the set ,it is custom-made color ,not the magenta. The cherry's proxy in China have ordered this from GMK and ofcourse ABS double shot. The proxy have paied for 520 sets of this and called this set Saint Valentine's Day Set, "520" means  " i love you " in chinese.
2,due to the  17%customs fees ,this set will be more expensive than ususl' GMK GB. and there is no mod to compatibale with WKL,1800 etc except for one stepped caps
3,the color is so similar to magenta ,but not the magenta. and this contains a cherry logo R1 and 2 love logo 1.25×.
4, i write this not to intent compare this set's time with miami night's , i just want to show my great respect to ivan. This GB is not his all life. he also has his own life and work and like everyone as us. Joining in GMK' GB means great patience exercise for everyone . If there is any important update for us for this GB, IVAN will update as soon as possible even every one hour update . IF there is no update, IVAN will keep this tidy . please waiting patiently. No news is good news , everything is going well as usual even it is slow than usual.

I think he might have posted it because people were asking about it, so it was likely easier to post here for everyone to see.  I know I PMed him about it, haha.  :-[

I just wonder whether the owner of this valentine set has ever seen windowed/printed caps before, imo, double_shot >> windowed+printed, and without any extras, seems like a waste

Please tell me more about the scroll locks that you have worn out.
Pad printing is fine and GMK does it better than most.

If you really want I can show you an unused caps-lock that has the legends pre-worn-out

Best case scenario, the colors and glare doesn't match double-shots anyway

This modifiers would probably look great with bow or gmk cyrillic alphas, I've tried cyan + cyrillic colorway before, it was incredible

1,this set's color way is not magenta, although this color looks so similar to magenta. it's saint valentine's Day set by GMK and also double-shot ABS.
this set is a  custom-made color by cherry's proxy in China. yes, it' custom-made color, not pink ,not magenta, not 3C color in GMK's color card.
2,exactly,they need 500 set to reach the custom-made color MOQ,.However,the cherry's proxy in China have submitted 520 sets which means "i love you" in chinese.
3,Now ,these sets have been produced already and sent to China by air not by sea.
4,This set will be on sale in China. Taobao.in Jan 31,2016.
5,Unfortunately, due to 17% customs fees , this set will be more expensive than usual GMK. and this set just have a stepped caps without other mod.
6,some friends says this is 104, yes , this is not GB for the whole world , it is just for friends in China where the 104 is the predominant.
7,This cherry's proxy will lanuch new GMK GB in GH sooner or later. the color is also custom-made ,and which mod or wkl keys needed depend on you ,so please not complain to this 104 set ,thank you .

1,the monkey logo is ABS double shot
2,the cherry logo is produced under permission of Cherry Corporation. Of course ABS double shot made
3,the legend's color is V2, just as the color in skidata's legend, but the other color does not exist on GMK color card. it is new color and custom-made color
the same rule is we need 500 sets to make this happen, but don't worry .We have figured it out.
4,this set GB have been lauched on EC in China and now have collected more than 70 orders approaching to 100 sets and this will last to Feb 13, 2016 in China. this set will be lauched on GH sooner or later by an old friend.Please support him ,thank you .
5,now the price is coming at last. This set will produced by GMK and sent to China by air not by sea .thus it will faster than usual GMK GB. and unfortunately, all we have to pay China's Customs Fee, 17%.

the Very Important Thing is MOQ
yeah, we ,all the GMK FANS AND ADDICTS to GMK , strive hard to reach to the high MOQ. just as the miami night  merely reach and the pity classic beige and SNES. Now the GMK boom in China ,we have done a 520 set custom-made color set and now doning a mokey limited custom-made color set.
we could buy extra sets to meet MOQ and sell later.so we don't need to worry about MOQ
Besides Saint Valentine's Day Set and Monkey Limited Set, We will lauch the third custom-made color set from GMK and may be CMYK. Then ,i will open a new interest chech for everyone to discuss on how many and which mod needed to be added into . just waiting patiently and care for you wallet.
Another important problem is price. the Saint V's set and Monkey set will ship to China and then pack to other location in the world ,so the customs fee is 17% and make these two sets more expensive. About he third round custom-made would , i will find a way to avoid these fees and make this set more accessible to everyone in EU ,AU AND US.

How are they getting custom double shot legends?
hi friend .do you mean how GMK made the custom-double shot legends?
if your question is that, my answer to that is they just need to open and create one mold for the monkey logo or cherry logo, not need to create a whole set for monkey sets.
exactly , only mold for the  monkey logo is new and the molds for other keys in this set is old. this is ecnomic.
and about how to make double shot ABS keys and the process , you could find answer to that on deskrhority(DT)

I asked because in the past GMK refused to make custom mold for new keycap design.

Do they take request now?

Good idea,but MD is not my first priority. since it need service fee for launching on it and accordingly increase the sets price but we just want to avoid the 17% customs fees in China without increasing other fees.

OK,i appreciate and fully understand you .
The custom-mold for 1.25× heart in Saint Valentine set havs been made already and it is also a big surprise to me.
 i don't know the specifics how proxy in China discussing with GMK?
From my point of view, profit is a  major but not only factor. The Cherry's Proxy in China(short as CPC below) have ordered 520 sets including custom-made keys and may promise to order more later. CPC could steadily order sets from GMK including custom-made keys and make profits, but we ,as enthusiasts in GH, could not do that easiy and just make one GB  even with just 250 sets and will not order the custom-made keys next GB.
and another important point is CPC earn great profits for Cherry Co. and CPC have got cherry's new series keyboards been made in China. CPC have more powerful voice in cherry. GMK have been affiliated to Cherry. IF CPC expressed intention to order custom-made legend and colors to GMK through Cherry. I think the voice is more powerful than enthusiasts in forums.

OK, due to the 17% customs fee in China, the Saint Valentine set is approximate 990RMB¥ (CNY)and not including international transportion fees.
IF Changing to USD according to current exchange rate, the set will reach highly 150 USD roughly.
welcome your any questions, negative and positive. but please don't complain to the high price and 104. because this is the debut set ordered by Cherry's Proxy in China and for Chinsese enthusiasts.
IF the high price is acceptable to you , overseas and international friends, you could buy it . if not acceptable to you , both OK.
Repeat sentence, like it or not , buy it or not , all depending on you. and welcome negative and positive disscution on them ,but please not complain ,thank you very much.

GG. That cost will surely be cost prohibitive to most people. Especially since the price per key will be really bad. It is great though that the EC community is starting to get involved in group buys. Hopefully they can work it out so that it is less costly and more available to us here.
