How is it working with shipping? Will GMK send out partial order to mykeyboard or will everything go to keyclack and then back to europe again? I'd assume the former.

GMK samples reached rainb1ood, and here are the photos he took:















The samples are on their way to me, then to Gatix.

I think so too, apologies for that. I used light box with white LEDs, the LEDs could be causing the blue hue. But under neutral light, its closer to thesiscamperís render.

Sample outside during day time and under a shade:


Sample outside under direct sunlight (around 12:40pm noon):

I'm not worried, I'm sure it looks great in person.  Another example of pictures not matching IRL is Plum, which had custom colors also.

Hey everyone,

The designers decided to remake the colors as they aren't 100% satisfied with them. GMK is already handling the request and we updated the GB page on keyclack for it.

Sorry, but this will definitely cause some delay.

So how much delay are we talking about? 1 Month?

I see the sample pictures was posted a month ago. Did you decided just now to remake them, or did you remake them in the beginning of october?
(If so, then new samples should have arrived?)

email support@keyclack.com ;

Regarding the change: it was a recent change, after reviewing the colors again. Just want to make sure it's done right, as I personally feel that the legend color can be fixed up a little.

I'm sure we'll all be satisfied with the result.

Small update: as of last week (11-10-2017) GMK has submitted the new color values to their supplier and according to them, color matching will take about two (2) weeks.

Based on an update posted http://keyclack.com/groupbuy/gmkSolarizedDarkR1 it looks like we're delayed. Not sure how badly delayed though.

Yea. It they haven't approved colours yet, manufacturing hasn't started either. Provided these colours are better then the last, hopefully they will be approved within a week's time. Not sure how long production takes once colours are approved though. Christmas shipping madness may impact this as well. Not too worried though as GMK Nautilus should ship soon to tie me over.

All I ordered was the TU2 spacebars.
Hope that doesn't get tweaked to a different shade along with the legends.

I don't think the TU2 legends will be tweaked.  I'm assuming when they talk about tweaking legends, they're talking about the gray color used in the alphas.

We never discussed changing the grey, this was jchan's own opinion but something that wasn't decided on by rainb1ood, gatix and me. It stays the same. The colors that we decided to ask new samples for are the mod base and alpha base colors. As for the time it will take we have no idea, we haven't received the new samples, GMK didn't give a tracking number, and we have no idea when the samples will arrive.

ETA was middle of november.

Like others said, if you can ask GMK for a time-line once the samples has been approved that would be great.

Either the lack of communication or irresponsible attitude of GMK.
I canít understand why GMK hasnít sent the new sample yet. This situation is very disappointing, considering ETA was Nov or Dec.
