What's happening at the moment is that we're waiting in the cue at Signature Plastics :) The first run is roughly planned after the holidays.
As soon as I have some info on samples or final kit pricing, I will definitely let you guys know.
Thanks for your patience!  :)

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!

I just noticed the IC when l search for anything new from LINGUA FRANCA & this set came up. I love this set & hope LINGUA FRANCA ends up producing this DSA set.

I'm not sure if SP's tooling supports this though.

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.

Yeah, I didn't expect it to run for a while, it's been almost 2 years since the last update, that's why it's probably not on any recent list Will update my reddit and geekhack posts whis weekend. I'm ironing out some last minute details with the manufacturer.  :cool:

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 ?

Will you be announcing whether you'll be running with the KAT profile before the DSA orders on PMK closes?

... debating whether I should just buy the DSAs or hold out. I really love this set and don't want to miss out on having any version of it.

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?
