[GB] GMK 9009 Ortholinear and Vim
« on: Tue, 03 April 2018, 13:17:59 »
Good morning world!
Sorry it took so long to get this post up. I had to pay my dues and get my 25 posts before I could create this post.

We are about 10 days into the GMK 9009 Ortho and Vim Groupbuy.

Current Numbers:
60 Vim and 41 Ortho.

I plan on purchasing stock of both kits, so we don’t have to quite reach that with sales. If any other vendors are interested in buying stock, just contact me and we’ll work out a wholesale price for you.

Ill start out with some basic information.

/u/woodkeys_click [+2] and I have spent a lot of time making sure these kits are just right. We wanted to bring a full GMK Ortholinear kit with legends for as many Ortho layouts as we could. I don't think there has ever been a GMK ortho kit, that didn't just rely on blanks. This is a big step, so a big risk, because of the niche.

When
The groupbuy has been extended to April 14, 2018.

What
Obviously this is a group buy for the GMK 9009 Ortholinear and Vim kits. Below you will see the details of each kit.

$105 ORTHOLINEAR KIT | 94 pieces | MOQ 150 | Price drop to $95 at 250 https://i.imgur.com/2t2XSRQ.jpg
$35 VIM KIT | 21 pieces | MOQ 150 https://i.imgur.com/z77Ybql.jpg

Where
NA: The group buy will be hosted on http://dixiemech.com/shop/gmk9009/ in the same place as the other 9009 buy from a few months ago. The new kits will just be in the drop down.
EU: The European proxy will be mykeyboard.eu. They ran the last 9009 groupbuy for Europe, so everything should be familiar there as well. Contact them for any questions regarding EU purchases.
https://mykeyboard.eu/catalogue/gmk-9009-ortho_463/
https://mykeyboard.eu/catalogue/gmk-9009-ortho_463/

Shipping
Rough shipping estimate is the end of August, but that is obviously very rough, because nothing has actually happened yet.

Giveaways

1
ALL 50 SPOTS ARE FILLED. WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED AT THE END OF THE GB.
We have teamed up with /u/taylorisg from Boomsnap! Caps to create some 9009 themed artisans. The sculpt will be announce at a later time, but all you need to know is how to win them.
The first 50 customers to join the group buy, will be entered into a raffle to win 1 of 2 9009 themed caps. And when I say win, I don't mean, you may purchase them; I mean you win them. FOR FREE. So be one of the first 50 in, and you'll have a 1/25 chance of getting one of these caps! (This is only for people who purchase through Dixie Mech).

2
We have another giveaway with OLKB and NovelKeys for anyone who joins the Ortho GB! You will be entered to win a EOTW Preonic Keyboard Kit with a pack of the unreleased NovelKeys Box Royal switches. You will also win another set of GMK 9009 Ortho, to flip or give to a friend, and a set of GMK 9009 Vim! Now thats a heck of a giveaway!


Shoutout to /u/Janglad [+3] for the renders! Also shoutout to /u/kingrama for giving us awesome M60-A renders!

APRIL 6 UPDATE:

46 Ortho
65 Vim

We’re way behind but I will try my best to make this happen no matter what. One more week to go!

Come on people! Let’s make this set a reality! Tell your wives! Tell your friends!
Thanks for all the support so far. Love you all.

APRIL 18 UPDATE:

Hello everyone,

I would first like to apologize for the lack of updates since the GMK 9009 Ortho and Vim Groupbuy ended this past Saturday. We were below MOQ, so I was working on a way to still get this group buy produced before I made any announcements. GOOD NEWS!

I placed the order yesterday! The group buy is still moving forward, people! Hopefully I will have a more precise arrival date from GMK, this week.

Now onto the fun part!

**GIFTS AND PRIZES!**

We had two BoomSnap! Caps 9009 themed caps to giveaway to two lucky winners in the first 50 orders! We have RNG'd the list of the first fifty and have emailed the winners! So go check your email!

Next is the BIG MOMMA giveaway!
A EOTW Planck kit w/ PCB, NovelKeys BOX Royal Switches, and an additional set of GMK 9009 Ortho and Vim! This giveaway is open to anyone who ordered an Ortho kit! We have also emailed the winner of that! SO GO CHECK YOUR EMAIL!!

We are so excited to get to continue down the road with everyone on this group buy and we are committed to getting it to you in a timely and efficient manner. We will continue to post updates as soon as they come! Thanks to everyone who joined and helped us make this happen!

5/22/18 UPDATE
We have gotten word from GMK that the sets have been produced and are waiting to be sorted and packed. They said that they plan to have that completed no later than mid/late June. They sent me a photo of the ortho set and I am waiting on the Vim photos. They look beautiful!

That price on the EU proxy tho. Judging by the prices over at Dixie Mech, the VIM kit should have been 10 to 15€ cheaper. Not ****ting on mykeyboard.eu or anything, as they are a full time business. But the extra 16€ shipping makes me walk

They are based in Belgium, so Import Duties for the EU isn't a thing. But a higher price when the vendor does not pay Import Taxes on the delivery from GMK, as well as cheaper shipping itself from GMK. It would make sense for the VIM to be 35€ or 40€, but not 45€. Especially after fixed shipping (which is not cheap, BTW), regardless of order

The GB ended by this point, I suppose? So did we meet the MOQ?

Hello,

Any news about the Vim set?

Regards,
DarKou

I asked to purchase it, but I was told to wait until the set arrives, and that next updates will be on the newsletter (subscribe on the site).

Anyway, if    GarrettSucks changes his mind, I'd be happy to pay it forward! Who knows where I'll be when the next buying-window opens....
