Mine arrived today, they look okay but the lower layer looks fused as opposed to the nice grid shown in the pictures. This really bothers me as after waiting months for these keycaps I was expecting that time to go to use insuring they were made to the standard expected in the picture, not fused.
I'm honestly disappointed because expectations were so high for these and they were so close to being amazing and just didn't quite get there. It's just sloppy.
There is a very high degree of randomness to the plastic injection grid you see, the very concept of a translucent shell on a solid component for the legend is already “trashy” and peculiar.
It is impossible to predict the exact grid or pattern a particular customer will receive with their kits. Some people may receive a very busy grid, others may not even see a grid at all. All kits wil be unique. We wanted the imperfections to be seen.
Therefore rendering it may not be entirely accurate. Every customer will receive their kits with a different grid underneath.
I’m sorry if you are disappointed, but I believe you set sky high expectations (nothing wrong with that, by the way) because you didnt fully understood what the product was supposed to be in the first place (and that can be a problem).
Me personally (speaking as enthusiast, not the creator) very much enjoy the grid you’ve got, the W looks molten and the others seem like melting. It reminds me of Terminator movies! Combined with a neutral keyset (for example something white) or maybe even Laser GMK itself, I think it‘s gonna look very very nice and cyberpunk. In my honest opinion the gamerish typeface keyset you have going on isn’t helping, the composition looks off. Doesn’t do justice in highlighting the kit which is an addon to Laser GMK. Of course the customers are free to use and display products as they want to. I’m just sharing my personal opinion as a hobbyist now.
You can read read more about the concept here:
“Our goal was to develop a product that would resemble manufacturing standpoints from a cyberpunk future.“
That's understandable and thank you for the response. I will admit my expectations were probably much higher than they should have been.
As a suggestion to you I'd say it would be a good idea to point this out in the item listing that there would be a sense of randomness and they won't be as crisp as the pictures display. All in all they are good keycaps and look really nice.
You can be certain we will improve for the next time, thanks a lot for sharing your feelings and feedback @Napostrophe , we really appreciate it!
This was the first time anyone offered a product like this! Thanks a lot for the support and I hope you have high expectations for Laser GMK, that one is looking pristine!
Very nice, thought I can understand w/ the grid... Still look pretty legit. Excited to see what Dusk colorway looks like.
Will these ever be done again? This pic is making me wish I had gotten Dawn instead of or in addition to Dusk.
