Purple alphas are starting to grow on me :x

Some better renders of each of the alpha colors with the addition of a poll might be a good step forward.

I like the YAWK novelties. What about a Dominoes themed cap? Enter maybe?

I actually love the idea of a dominoes themed cap. I'm falling out of favor with the man down...I think a domino tile piece for an R3 caps lock and a minivan enter novelty would pair better than lyrics.


Let do it with icon mod, bro.

I actually finally got a response back from GMK about the set which included many quotes/moq's and information pertaining to the set.

1. Custom colors require base kits to meet 250 MOQ no matter what
2. Novelties/Spacebars/Icon kits are ok for 150 MOQ

I've still got to figure out vendors and stuff because the quotes I received are excluding VAT, Banking and Shipping so I'm not too sure how markup would look!


Here is an image of an icon mods kit which I've added to the kit image album!



Going to provide some new images for novelties so we would have the following

1. R1 Casette tape
2. 4x R1 YAWK
3. R3 1.75u Domino
4. R3 2.25u Minivan

then once I get a revised quote on that I'll talk to some vendors!

now should the minivan be facing left as per the album. or right for continuity reasons...

I would face it to the left for aesthetic reasons. With a MOQ of 150 for spacebars/novelties, would it make sense to combine the kits into one?

based on the pricing I have now, it would make most sense to add novelties to the base kit,

but I'm gonna inquire about some new novelties and see what the price difference is and go from there...you're right though, some form of kit combination to ensure hitting MOQ is smart

I like the minivan idea! Love the first image colorway, definitely interested. Still unsure about the novelties but I would probably get it even without.

Maybe make a novelty enter key that is purple but has the minivan on it? Love the colors so far!

Like all of them a lot except the enter due to the size of the van. But I usually dont like it when the icons are too big, the van itself I find super nice!
Tbh, I dont get the domino reference (but I also dont know Kendrick and hes music that well), but it looks awesome as a novelty!

Ah and I forgot to mention (since I havent said anything about this set yet) that the colors are really growing on me and I might be in, depending on the price and point in time  its going to run.

In the icon mod kit, theres a mac command sub-legend - is that double-shot or pad printed (the command icon) ?

I'm going to try get some competent renders of the set on boards out there, see if it generates any more interest...as it stands right now I dont think theres enough to meet MOQ. So we'll see,

Love to see it happen but I'm a realist :)

Agreed, I think this set is one that might grow on people past their initial judgement. The colors are certainly not traditional.

I'd love to see this as renders! Similar keysets with unorthodox colors were not popular until people saw how it'd look IRL. Looking forward to it!
