Hey everyone, I want to give this another shot - a no frills GMK keycap set at an accessible price.
GMK keycaps are some of my favorite. Cherry profile works well aesthetically with many of the keyboards out there and GMK's manufacturing is fantastic. I don't think you'll find better when it comes to double-shot Cherry profile keycaps.

Oh my god. I've been excited for so many drops this year (BSP, space cadet,) but this is by far the best drop.
Nicest GMK set for only $99. I'm in for plenty of sets.

YES! I'm so glad I didn't go for GMK Originative.

Since these are not custom colors, the MOQ is 150 (unless massdrop and GMK have some kinda deal, which is totally possible because the price is so low) and I wouldn't worry about this not hitting MOQ at all.

This set ran once already and failed which is why I was wanting to know. Originative also just ran a WoB group buy so there may be less buyers anyways.

That's true, but at this price AND it being on massdrop, I highly doubt it won't get 150 sales.

Hopefully. I've been wanting a WoB set for a while so I really want it to be successful this time, haha

I don’t think there is an MOQ on this drop. Since there is no spreadsheet, it would show how many purchases still needed to reach MOQ at the top of the overview. Like this from another drop -

I got really surprised when it did not hit the moq last time. It seems winds are changing in our niche market for good.

Oversaturation is becoming an issue, I think. Too much product, not enough buyers, so the market splits regularly. I know I've passed on several sets that I would have otherwise bought because of that.

The last time it was hidden behind GMK JaMod. The drop is about GMK JaMod and WoB as secondary kit.

@YanboWu Is the current sold count of 284 accurate or is it rolling in numbers from the previous failed GB?

I think it's actually pulling in numbers from the previously failed drop - which is a little odd. I will flag that to the site team!

I was referring to the inaccurate numbers, it's not actually 3XX sold at the moment since its pulling in numbers from the previous drop. So we're really interested if we're gonna hit MOQ and make this a reality :)

I assume that since there is no "+X purchasers needed" note*, this drop doesn't have an MOQ. Is my assumption correct?

So glad to see a simple and affordable GMK set. Thank you for pulling this together. I'm in for 2 sets. Any plans on doing others like BoW?

Who designed this key set? (GMK White on Black, https://www.massdrop.com/buy/gmk-white-on-black-custom-keycap-set/) I'd really like to buy two-three sets with NorDe, is that possible at any price point?

Just forget it haha, i am on my 2 year of waiting on WoB set with a norde kit.. There is a epbt GB soon with black on grey (Epbt Slate ) is the  closest i have seen in years for a minimal clean look. https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=90316.0 or checkout the epbt BoW on kbdfans

For now I ordered the GMK Carbon, it's the best NorDe key cap set with neutral Windows keys in the world today. (If you accept a proprietary Windows key, Filco makes one set also.) What happened with the GMK White-on-Black https://www.massdrop.com/buy/gmk-white-on-black-custom-keycap-set , did it lack a NorDe set?? Otherwise it looks excellent. Very similar to GMK Carbon was GMK Eclipse which apparently was slow to get purchases, it did have NorDe keys. https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=90360.0 , https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=91931.0 , maybe eventually it didn't even happen - I'm still amazed at the peculiar dynamics of the key caps market. There's also Originative's Originative https://www.originativeco.com/products/originative , it's WoB but no NorDe announced. Both GMK Carbon and GMK Eclipse are excellent designs. If he'd make an all WoB I'd buy 2-3 kits immediately. Re the geekhack set you referenced, I posted them asking them to make a WoB variant. The Kbdfans BoW NorDe kit you talked about, is it https://kbdfans.cn/products/gbenjoypbt-black-on-white-with-icon-mods-159keys ? Its Windows key looks weird (a tilted square and no blank option, what's that..). Will that dye sub likely stick? They look fine, however white-on-black would be so much more preferable. Of course the dye sub they used here, is a much simpler manufacturing technology than doubleshot molding. It's funny that today in 2018 when we even have 3D printers, producing quality key caps and making an economy enough to stock them, is still a challenge.. So strange!
