Welcome back to SA Sunday Morning. It's been a little while since this IC has seen any movement.
I'd been gone with another project and performing render services for this community but I thought I would take a break from that and put some time into this project.

Let's see if we can bring this back from the dead.

For The Newcomers

SA Sunday Morning is a keycap set based on the color scheme of one of my favorite vinyl that I own and is named after one of the most significant songs in the ablum.



Announcements

Group Buy will be held December 1st!
Kits have been tweaked slightly.
Custom Cables will be offered via CruzCtrl
Pricing Added, Vendors announced:

US: Minterly Studios
EU: MyKeyboard
Oceania: Daily Clack
Asia: iLumkb
CA: Deskhero

Kits

With these kits I wanted to take advantage of the low MOQ of Singature Plastics by making ISO a separate kit, splitting the alphas and offering forties along side TKL support, and separating numpad from the base kit.

Peach Alphas - $42 | MOQ 75



Maroon Alphas - $66 | MOQ 75



60 - TKL - $85 | MOQ 100



Forties/Ortho - $79 | MOQ 75



Novelties - $50 | MOQ 50



Numpad - $40 | MOQ 50



Spacebars - $30 | MOQ 50



ISO - $29 | MOQ 25



Additional Pricing

Hello! This is a post interest checking for the color way of "Sunday Morning"
(Attachment Link)

This idea has been with my for a while. The colorway comes from this vinyl that I find to be very important to me and is the most pretty album I own currently: Songs About Jane by Maroon 5 (limited edition triswirl 1/4k)
(Attachment Link)
(Attachment Link)
(Attachment Link)

This is in VERY early stages of development. A few novelty ideas I've had for it are simply a record/vinyl, a record player tonearm to go across the enter key, perhaps a cassette tape somewhere; someone also had suggested key song lyrics for the various keys. Any suggestions would be taken into consideration.


Things in question:

GMK or SA profile:
Asking custom colors of GMK results in a high MOQ of 250, on the other hand, SA mans for a long turnaround time and likely higher cost. I have an appreciation for both profiles though my vision for this set sits closer to SA.

Arranging the colors:
The question for how the colors are arranged is really simplified down to either black or red text for the alphas and mods. The accent keys will remain black with "peach" text.

For your enjoyment I have arranged very mediocre renders of both of these in both profiles... Sorta. The SA I was having issues with the font coming out too small, and the cherry/OEM does not support row profiles for porting KLE layouts into blender. Should this gain enough interest, I will try harder with renders or likely have some made but for now I think this will do:

Please consider filling out this interest check forum if this is something you would like to see come to life.

This is my first interest check, I am currently a student, and am kinda working on a board project on the side, so please don't expect quick movement on this to start. You can expect my full devotion to it once we have picked up speed, though, for now, it is only the beginning.

Please leave any recommendations you may have for me in the forums or as replies to this post. Thanks for reading!

But one of their most recognisable songs on this album is Sunday Morning! It also rolls off the tongue much easier than Gee Emm Kay Jayne

Would prefer this in GMK simply because I'm not a SA fan :P But your vision is your vision ;)

With regards to the legends, SA can probably pull of the red legends, with GMK I'm not sure. Due to smaller legends I'm afraid it'll suffer from too little contrast and make them very hard to read. So my feeling is that with GMK legends should be black for readability.

With variations in lighting, colors from camera, and render inaccuracies, I think GMK red text will be fine..in person, the contrast is decent enough. Should it go the GMK route, I will order samples to show.

Spoke with Abec, he has ordered samples from Signature Plastics that should be getting to him in the near future. It was a pretty even split between GMK and SA, currently SA is looking to be the direction it will take.

I donít see it slowing down at all, heís got plans for it and once those samples are in hand there should be an update! I like the idea of a nice SA set to break up all this GMK we have right now haha
