I thought I like the other current 'SA' GBs, but the more I look at yours, the more I like it! Not to mention what a great kit for $99 that covers most popular layouts. I am sure it would sell more if there aren't so many keycap GBs going on right now...

You have my support!  :thumb:

PS. Homing scooped?

In that case, would you extend the GB until after we can see the sample?

I hope I'll manage to get the money before the GB ends. I still don't understand why you decided to have only 15 days time span instead of usual one month period.

It just so happens that I was drinking my coffee this morning when burgundy red Mercedes passes me by. It was the exact color of this keyset and it looked absolutely fantastic.

So yeah, now I'm gonna have to buy that car to match it to my keycaps. Just kidding. But I do wonder how would Royalty look in GMK.

Quick question. I noticed the arrow keys in the renders look different. In the more drawn out style showing the whole set they look like arrow tips with stems, and in the real life type render they look like chunky arrow heads with no stems on them. Which set of arrow keys will be used when they keys are produced?

They will look like the renders. Thatís how all Maxkey arrows look.

Hey guys! I'm sorry, but we couldn't get samples to you on the 14th.

I recently bought a pantone color book of all their offerings, so I've had an oppurtunity to look at all the colors available in person instead of simply over renders/pantone's website.

The previous colors were:

Alphas: 491C
Mods: 504 C
Accents: 7413 C
Legends: 7499 C

The sample for these has been made and shipped out yesterday. Here's pretty much what happened:



I requested a revised sample for the alpha and accent colors. The other accent color was a very "burnt" orange, and this wouldn't have fit the theme of the set so I changed it from 7413 C to 1375 C.

I've also requested a sample of 492 C for the alpha color, because I'm not sure if 492 C or 491 C will look more like what I envision for the set.

I have pictures of the swatches, however, they're not 100% accurate in terms of color. They were taken under bright warm white light on a pixel 2XL.

Here's the revised orange (Row 4 from top)



Here are the two colors I'm deciding between for alpha color (Rows 5 and 6 from top)



Here's the legend color (Row 1). I feel like this color (and accent + mods) is perfect.



Here's the mod color. (Row 6) It looks like brown in the picture- Rest assured, it is not brown. Please do not worry.




Hopefully that cleared up questions about the colors. I'm sorry I couldn't get samples out to you guys earlier, but I hope these will be enough to tide us over in the meantime for people who were on the fence.

If youíre looking for input, from what I can tell Iíd personally prefer keeping 491C for the alphas. I like the accent color change though and agree the mods should look nice.

At the end of the day itís your set so obviously take or leave my input and work with your initial vision! Either way Iím excited for this set to happen.

I'm a little worried about lack of contrast so I figured it was best to have a lighter sample to compare with to make sure the alphas and mods are distinct enough. However, if there's enough contrast I'm going with 491C, as I like that shade of red slightly more. Thank you for the feedback!

That definitely makes sense! Iím sure once you have the samples itíll be an easy decision. Do you have any updates numbers? Weíre getting close to the end here and Iím curious if you know whether this set will push through yet or not!

The set looks great, I joined yesterday. I hope we hit the moq.

I also prefer 491c (the darker color) for the alphas, at least according to the images that you linked. I trust you for the final decision of course. I guess we'll get a better idea with the samples.
