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:

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.

So, Iíll share a story to prove I donít mind looking dumb. Just three days ago, I realized why this set was named ďroyaltyĒ.  Yes, I knew it drew from Wes Andersonís ďRoyal TenenbaumsĒ.  But I didnít realize you could read it like Royal T.  As in Royal Tenenbaums.

Just so you don't feel too bad, I'll say that I totally didn't realize that either until you pointed it out.

Not gonna lie, this totally wasn't intentional and just happens to be a coincidence. However, thanks for pointing it out! The name came from both the Royal Tenenbaums and temples->palace->royalty.

Samples for initial four!

The orange looks surprisingly good. That's odd.

The creamy/yellow for legends looks a bit greenish, almost like glow in the dark material, when it's by the darker mod color.  Is it that way in real life?

Awesome! These look really great from what I can tell. Iím assuming the alpha red here is the 491C?

Yessir! :)

Not at all. It's more of a vanilla eggshell color.

Having a bit more time to look at the samples now I wonder if they seem a bit too warm and saturated? The renders and Pantone colours seem to suggest a bit more subdued colourway. It could also be just the lighting in the photos but whatís your take ye_cole? Are you happy with how they turned out? I think the mod and legend colours are pretty close but the alpha and accent seem a bit off. I know youíre waiting on a few others to compare to as well.

Edit: I should say that as a whole the colours look very cohesive and thatís probably most important!

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.

So yeah, unfortunately I didn't manage to get the money before this GB ended, which is really a shame because I honestly think this is one of the best looking, subtle and tastefully done keysets I've seen in a long time.

BUT

As a last desperate measure, I called a friend who now lives quite literally on the other side of the continent and said - look, I have an emergency, you have to help me out. I sent him a link to this page and said - buy this shhit RIGHT NAO. So he did just a few moments ago.

The orange came out exactly how I thought the second orange would come out- so that doesn't really need adjustment. The mods + legends are also perfectly fine. I'm not sure about the alpha colors. I think i'll wait until the 2nd sample comes in to pass judgement on that.

That sounds great to me! I quite like the accent colour myself and when I adjust the photos a little bit to what I imagine is the correct colour balance and lighting then it all looks very nice! I think this is going to turn out really well and I canít wait until January!

Edit: I wonder if you could take a photo with the keycaps on their respective Pantone colour sheet just so we can see how they match up?

The samples look a lot brighter than I expected, considering the renders and the pantone color book.

I wish both the mods and alphas were darker. It's a shame because the renders looked so good. I really liked how the colors were burgundy, but almost brown.

Nothing is set in stone yet and letís keep in mind we have no idea what kind of lighting conditions these were shot under. If ye_cole takes a photo with the keycaps on their respective Pantone chip weíll have a much better idea how things match up and if any adjustments are needed.

Totally agree that the accent color(orange), mods and legends are spot on. But the alpha colors do seem a little too bright.. almost pinkish? Good to know that there are second samples. Loving this set so far!

I have no idea how to color correct, so these may not be accurate.

My thoughts: LOVING the colors. I think they look great and am going to keep them on my HHKB until royalty ships.

Not 100% sure about the orange, but I'm going to see how it feels like in a couple of days.

I'm going to wait until the 2nd round of samples before making any final decisions, but I'm leaning towards keeping these colors ATM.

Color balancing photos is really hard for stuff like this.

Looking at the V1 samples and your signature/render right next to each other, everything seems really close except for the alphas being a bight brighter and slightly more orange instead of red. A tad more saturated as another user pointed out. Either way big strides. Looking forward to this.

Just a little heads-up.

New Cluebord v5 is coming next month, and it looks like this will be their first generation of boards to offer powder coating.

So what does this have to do with SP Royalty? Well, look at "Desert red" option. Seems like hand and glove.

Hey guys!

Sorry, haven't checked GH in a while as I've been busy.

I haven't chosen a new alpha color- that's a misunderstanding. There are still samples being made for both alpha colors, and I'm waiting on those to decide. However, as I've had more and more time with the caps on my HHKB- now when I reexamine the caps and compare them with the pantone swatch of 492C, I'm heavily leaning towards 491.

I apologize for the misunderstanding!

So- I'm going to be going with the 4 colors that I received. I've been using the colors on my board ever since I got them, and I really like how they look. I'm sure that nobody's going to be disappointed with how the colors end up.

I agree it seems the legends on the mods seem less creamy but maybe thatís just the surrounding colour creating that effect? Guess weíll have to wait and see. Overall though I think the colours turned out super well!

Kono posted this on their web site today:

https://kono.store/pages/weekly-update

"SA Royalty
The keycaps arrived at our warehouse last Friday and we are in conversations with the warehouse to see how soon they can get them stocked. The warehouse has been extremely busy and is experiencing delays - thank you for your patience."

Apparently they've had them for a week, but they're not in stock (whatever that distinction is supposed to mean to customers).  Does anyone know if Kono is outsourcing their fulfillment?  Between this and the update for GMK Monochrome, it sounds like their warehouse is actually outsourced to someone else.  When I received my GMK Monochrome set, the GMK banderole was shipped to me inside a plastic bag, with no other packaging.  Hopefully they do better with SA Royalty, but it doesn't sound like Kono has enough control of the shipping process.

Probably outsource the warehouse, save money you know. It is expensive to have their own warehouse. I just hope we don't need to wait till March for them to start sending out package  :confused:

Ok so here goes my potato pictures.
Right now I donít have anything end game-ish, so this plain little board is here to tide you guys over.

I liked this set packed nicely in the box all right, but after I put them on a working board, I just LOVED them. And it feels so good to type on them!

These photos were taken in the middle of the night under bright fluorescent light, so maybe not 100% accurate. And sorry for the dirty background.

Sorry I took so long sharing pics.  I'm a borderline hoarder, and have little space to work in - especially space with good lighting.  I also don't have a permanent board in mind for this keycap set. 
That being said, it does look pretty nice on a wood board.

Colors aren't entirely accurate on the old iPhone 5s here, but I didn't want to dig out my Nikon gear.
