[GB] [GB] GMK DMG - A Gameboy inspired keyset

Hi I'm not a regular poster on Deskthority but I thought some people here may be interested in this keyset GB. This post is very late and the GB is due to finish this friday but maybe it'll reach some people who haven't seen it yet who might like to pick up a set. We're close to selling enough but just need a final push to get us into production. The plan for this set was to make something that pays tribute to the Gameboy and can be subtle enough to put on a work board or, with the addition of the accents and novelties, something more fun. Anyway, I hope you like it!

Christmas morning 1989. Many of us tore into a wrapped package containing one of these and played it tirelessly until you ran out of AA batteries. Or until it got dark. Or until our parents yelled at us to take out the trash or shovel snow.
GMK DMG is our take on this classic. Bring a bit of nostalgia to your battlestation or workspace.

BASE KIT - $169.00

Includes 156 keys to cover a majority of the most popular layouts including 104, TKL, 1800, HHKB, FC660, 60% and many more. ISO enter and complimenting keys are also included, as well as 6.25u and 7u spacebars.
Featuring a variety of novelty keys that bring nostalgia including the A/B buttons, D-Pad arrow cluster, Battery indicator cap, and START SELECT mods. Just like you remember it!
MOQ 250 units

Image
POCKET KIT - $48.00

Due to the ever-increasing popularity of 40% keyboards, we've given the 40% layout its own kit. Cost minded and small, the 40s kit offers a nice compliment to fill out your CandyBar, MiniVan, MechMini, JD40, Planck (and others) with the proper keys. While not all variations on the layout are represented in order to keep the price affordable, we think we did a pretty good job of giving you what you need. MOQ 100 units


Image
SPACE KIT - $22.00

The spacebar kit includes a variety of the most popular spacebar sizes in DMG's complimentary color (Gameboy Button Magenta). MOQ 100 units

Includes 6.25u, 7u, 6u Center Stem, Convex 1u (x2) and 2u, as well as standard 2.25u and 2.75u blanks.

If my parents had yelled at me because I played with my Christmas gift, the last thing I would want is such a keyset :lol:
