[IC] DSA PBT. UnAlice ('Alice in Wonderland') update 2020
« on: Wed, 07 February 2018, 03:53:11 »
Hello everybody!

Interested in comething new and fresh? Want something unorthodox? Then these keycaps might be just the thing for you!
I'd like to introduce and check your interest in a new keycap set I've been working on for a while:
235765-0

I was inspired by the books by Lewis Carroll, and have tried to capture their feel and love for weirdness, symmetry and mathematics. As you might have noticed, the legends use a completely custom font I created along with novelty keycaps.
 
235769-1
Key features:
  • Unique font and novelties
  • Custom PBT colors
  • First set with FULL UT47 40% keyboard compatibility

UPDATE 13-02-2020:
After months of work and almost 2 years of waiting, I'm happy to announce:
This set in now on pre-order at PMK: https://pimpmykeyboard.com/new-dsa-unalice-keyset/ Whoho!
The (updated) kits available there are the ones that initially will be produced.
Ask your questions here and feel free to order your selection @ PMK store. Thank you for your support!

COLORS:
Alphas & mods:
  • Cream white (Pantone "winter white")
Spaces and accents:
  • Rose red: Signature Plastics RBH
  • Green leaf: Signature Plastics VCE

KITS:
Here are the kits that you can order today at PMK:

  • Alphas:
    [235729-2
  • TKL Mods:
    235739-3
  • Numpad:
    235737-4
  • Novelties:
    235735-5
  • Adapter kit mods :
    235733-6
  • 40% mods :
    235731-7
  • Ortho mods (Atomic, Planck + more)
    235741-8
  • Ortho novelties:
    235743-9
  • Gamer pack:
    190362-10
  • Accents (green or red possible):
    235745-11235747-12
  • ISO:
    190354-13
  • Spaces: 6, 6.25 and 7u:
    235749-14235751-15235753-16
  • Big banks, can be used as space bars for alternative layouts:
    235755-17
  • Tiny blanks, to be used as space bars for alternative layouts. I checked with PMK, and they said they can produce this kit in DCS profile (Row3), as that is better suited as a spacebar in my opinion. Use the comment box when ordering to do that:
    235757-18
  • Ergodox mods:
    235759-19
  • "Almost straight" novelties (Dropped the F-keys, as it would make the kit way too big):
    189449-20
  • NorDeUk:
    235761-21
  • Colemak/Dvorak homing:
    190372-22

Comments on the future:

I have some sketches for 3D sculpted "Artisan" keycaps, that I might sculpt in 3D and you might want to print. Or maybe an Artisan would like to cooperate with me on this, and we could create something together. I'm open for suggestions! Also am planning a future rerelease in a sculpted profile, possibly in additional colors. Oh, and I am thinking about releasing fitting desk / mouse mats, already made a picture of Alice playing Cricket, fot that. Stay tuned.

Anticipating some FAQ, here are some answers:

Q: "Why DSA?"
A: I like the profile, love pbt and am trying to use PMK's offer to produce dye sublimated sets at the moment.

Q: "What about profile X?"
A: I'd love to run this set in a subsequent round in another profile, like XDA, Sculpted SA, KAT, or some other spherical profile, if there is enough interest.

Q: "Will there be support for keyboard Y?"
A: It would be great to have support for as many keyboards as possible, including ergodox. Suggest your favorites and comment!

Q: "I know it's a long shot, but what about ALPS?"
A: I'd be happy for PMK to produce this in DSA ALPS in a future round:)

TODO:
  • Produce it!
  • Artisans?
  • TBD

UPDATE LOG:
  • Updated colors, kits and renders
  • Updated renders with actual colors
  • Added colors, 40% kit and reworked all kits
  • reworked all kits and refined legends
  • Contacted manufacturer, added color options and ergodox kit
  • Added new novelty caps and updated ortho render
  • Seem ppl like the mirrored legends, so they stay :)
  • Added preliminary kits, more to come
  • Added new novelties and gamer mini kits
  • Added the preliminary ISO kit with its own novelty, renamed 'WIN' to 'SYS' and further extended the Alternate kit
  • Made legends smaller for better fit and aesthetic appeal

THANK you for your interest, comments and suggestions. Your help is crucial to make this a set for as many people as possible! Contact me if you're interested in cooperating on this set, making artisan keycaps, or want to work together on a keycap set of your own: I love creating novelties  :))

PS. For all those who really dislike DSA: there is a keycaps in there, just for you ;)

Example renders:
188849-23235763-24
More to come...

P.S. This set was formerly introduced as 188863-25

Really nice!!  I think the font is a little too large though. for some reason the legends look huge.

The novelties look nice too.  I'm thinking you can add just the floating smile from the cheshire cat on a novelty spacebar.  Not too big, and maybe offset to one side.  just throwing out ideas.

the pure white base is a little bright for my tastes, but I do think it looks good overall.

Quite like the font design and everything. But I feel like its missing some color to really encapsulate the "wonderland/ fantasy" design.

I like the idea. I'm not in love with the enter key being a novelty. Also, I'd be interested in a "suited" num-row (like you have with the QAJK keys, but all 1 suit).
F Keys belong on the left.

I showed this to my girlfriend who loves Alice in Wonderland, she might finally let me get her a decent keyboard because of this.   She would like to see red rose or a dripping white rose painted red preferably for the numpad 0.

Thank you! Yeah, a classic feel is what I'm going for. I'm pretty excited about the upcoming colors too, just have to hear back from PMK before I'm sure it's doable.

Updated all kits, after listening to the feedback from the survey. Thank you everybody who filled it in!
One notable change is that I moved the 6.25 space from the alphas to the TKL mods, this will mean that ortho and ergodox buyers won't have to pay for an unused large cap, while the rest of us won't care :)

Please comment on the changes and (re) take the survey if you have 2 minutes.

It will be something in between I hope :) A tiny bit more cream colored (like the SA carbon) than white.
The color in the kits is off (too yellow / saturated), I'm working on 3D renders atm, where I can get it right.

Next thing on the agenda is to check pricing and practicalities with manufacturer. As soon as I know more, I will update the info and finilize the kits hopefully :)

EDIT: Also just split the Additional keys kit into a 40% and 60%+ keyboards. I'd appreciate any feedback on these two if you happen to own those keyboards :)

I really dig this set. The legends are good enough that I'm not even worried about what colorway it would end up being (the ones you rendered are all very clean and compliment the legends well.)  I would be in to buy some version of this if it goes to GB (probably something for a 30-60 or a numpad) Cheers and GL.

Thanks to everyone commenting and waiting for this set!

While we wait for production samples and kit prices, I have a tiny update  :)
1. A new render of Iris split ortho keyboard:
202492-0
2. A peek at one of the additions to the set I've been working on: a 3d printable artisan keycaps:
202494-1
I've just modeled Alice sofar,  but have sketches for additional characters also. Thinking of releasing these 3d models through shapeways, with minimal or zero commission. I will probably do an IC for them soon as well, and one other thing I have planned and am working on.
Looking for feedback on this, so let me know what you think.

Thanks!

Don't believe so, it's ways around it, like having similar logos, not using anything directly related to the "alice in wonderland" property. Look at SA "troubled minds" & it's clear "joker" likeness.

Yeah, Super hyped to see it in the store  ;D
The kits depicted there are not 100% correct, as most have been updated, but I've contacted PMK about that, hope to see that fixed soon. Then I'm going to order the lot!

EDIT: The set name was changed also, it's called "UnAlice" now... I will make a post here with the actual kits and info as soon as it's settled with PMK.

Stumbled upon this GB when I visited the PMK site. Great set. But I did notice some things after going through the whole thread.

1) The 6.25 space key is not shown as part of TKL mod kit.

2) You have created a separate kit for three 6.25 space bars.

3) Could you add one space bar to the TKL mod that will be nice.

3) Could you add an Asia proxy like ZFrontier. They give shipping discounts.

I hope it is not very late in the day to request these. On a side note, would love to see this in KAT profile some time in the future. One can include the twins and the Jabberwocky novelty in that.

It's a shame that the coloured mods didn't happen. If the keys were a more pure white it would be easy enough to die them whatever colour you want but probably won't turn out so well with the biege-y colour. This is still one of the more exciting key sets in a long time though, so congrats on getting it out there in one form or another.

That does seem odd to have to buy a space bar pack to have any type of space bar at all.  But I suppose that's what we must do.

Alright, let me try to answer a few questions.  :)
I am still emailing back and forth with SP (manufacturer) to settle some inconsistencies with the kits shown on the website. That's why I haven't posted before.

0) This set is only available on the PMK (SP) website, so no EU distributor atm. Unless someone is willing to become one and place a bulk order at PMK (like 7bit did with his set)?
1) The 6.25 spacebar will be part of the alphas kit, so no need to have it in the other kits or buy it separetely (Originally I wanted to have a separate spacebar kit, so ortho/ 40% people wouldn't have to pay for a key they'd not use), I do recommend the red spacebar though!
2) The 6.25 spacebar kit contains the red and the green one (and the white will be moved to alpha's)
3) See Q nr 1, spacebar adds about 1 or 2 $ to the price of alpha kit I believe.
4) I am thinking of running this set in a different profile in the future, PBT has my preference so KAT sounds promising. EU and Asian proxies will definitely be part of that (I'm EU based myself, and will have to pay custom duties too). Will have to rework the kits to include the different rows of course.

Colored mods/alphas: as the set is already quite large, PMK didn't want to run alternative colors yet, if it will be popular, it's definitely possible, so let's hope :) Also - the 2d images are a bit misleading, please check the renders in this thread - the white is much more white that creamy yellow, the pantone is called "Winter White" btw. Combining them with other mods would clash more because of the font, which is unique to this set.
EDIT: here's an example of the colors:

Oh geeze. I was going to have KAT Atlantis be my first GB, but this set is verrry nice. I'm just getting into MKs and want a good light-colored set (have also been eyeballing Alchemy and trying to convince myself to not buy it). I really like the DSA profile and I love love LOVE the font on these (that backspace key is awesome!). I'm glad you clarified that the keycaps are more white than the ivory currently shown on the PMK website. I like both actually, but would rather have a white set.

Thanks for the clarification. You are right the space bar kit is just 2$. But every dollar saved in one GB adds that dollar to another GB  ;D . I really dig in the font. It elevates the set to a whole new level. Imagine a simple font on this, dread to even think. I Don't mind the white or creamy yellow either one is fine for me. Finally how long will the GB window be open ?

Thank you all for comments and glad to see genuine interest :)

Here are some answers to the latest questions:

- The planned 'winter white' color is the one intended, no plans for other white versions
- the DSA set should be available at PMK for as long as people will want to buy it, since it's more of a 'print on demand with PBT, they I think it will be a while.
- No real plans to add another profile YET. KAT would require reworking of the set because of the row profiles, and I have not yet found any manufacturer for it. I will see how DSA sells and will do a IC / poll before making it available in other profiles, so get it now, while there is a relatively short waiting period before it's produced!

Thanks again, and keep those questions and suggestions coming!

I really love this set, but the communication on this has been lacking. Tomorrow is the last day for preorders, but have we had a final confirmation of what the kits are? When PMK first released the preorder, there were pastel accent keys in some kits. Seems like that's not the case anymore from the PMK website, but nothing has ever been explicitly stated either way.

I'm also not clear on what happens when pre-orders end...  It's been stated that this set will likely be stocked at PMK, so are the pre-orders just like a more "normal" pre-order where it's a chance to be one of the first to have the set, or will prices go up, or something else?

Hmm... as far as I know if you preorder, you are guaranteed to have it soon. Otherwise there will probably be a longer waiting period (unless your choice of kits will be in stock), since other sets will be produced in the meantime, due to limited capacity. I expect it to be more of an issue if you want a kit that is more rare than alphas or TKL mods. The price should not go up after presale.
EDIT: this just came in: the general sale will start on the 24th :)

The set seems to be removed from PMK?

Looking into it, there seems to have been some confusion with PMK. They said the presale ran until 2/17 on the actual item page, and their FB page as of Feb 10th, but then yesterday they changed it to "ending today."

Pretty sad if I missed out because of that.
