So, I’ll share a story to prove I don’t mind looking dumb. Just three days ago, I realized why this set was named “royalty”.  Yes, I knew it drew from Wes Anderson’s “Royal Tenenbaums”.  But I didn’t realize you could read it like Royal T.  As in Royal Tenenbaums.

See, I’m dumb.

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

You know, just saying that so you don't feel too bad.  That's all ;)

The orange looks surprisingly good. That's odd.

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.

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

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?

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 what’s 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 you’re waiting on a few others to compare to as well.

Edit: I should say that as a whole the colours look very cohesive and that’s 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 can’t 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 let’s 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 we’ll 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.

I came across two different comments about SP vs. Maxkey's SA keycaps: one from Oblotzky on Geekhack and one from he.yun on Massdrop.

So I saw from the weekly updates that a red alphas colour was chosen. I’m curious which one you ended up with and how close do you think it matches the original Pantone colour you provided?

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!

Hey guys! The factory just informed me that they wouldn't be able to make samples for those colors. I don't know why it took them 3 weeks, but they just said this today.

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.

Thanks for the update. Too bad about not getting more samples but it did seem like the first ones are good. If you have time would it be possible to just see the samples next to the original Pantone colours you picked? I’m just curious how they compare. Thanks!
