GMK offers custom colors for all projects including more than 104 keys and a MOQ of 250 sets.
The first step in creating a keycap set is selecting the colors you would like. The first place to start would be to look over the stock color options that GMK has to offer. Below you can see the range of stock GMK colors. If you’d like a closer look you can always order a color ring from the UNIQEY store as well.
If you would like a color that is not offered as a stock color we can match and create custom colors. With nearly infinite custom color options (RAL, Pantone, Hex, RGB, CMYK, etc.) you may be overwhelmed with choices. RAL is currently the preferred system for custom colors, as matching is nearly perfect on the first try. Within the RAL color palettes, we recommend “RAL Classic” or “RAL Design”. Pantone plastic chips are a good backup system to use if you can’t find a RAL color that is suitable. You can purchase these directly from Pantone. HEX, RGB, CMYK color codes are not accepted for custom colors as they are not physical colors.
After we have received your order including color requests, we will forward this information to our material supplier to initiate the matching process. The first batch of custom material usually arrives after about 3 weeks. We will then do a small batch test run on our machines. The result is a couple of blank keycaps which we then are shipping to the designer for evaluation. If the color meets the expectation of the designer he or she will send us a short release, confirming that we can move on to the next step of the production process. In case the designer isn´t completely happy with the results, we will start another sampling cycle. A complete sampling cycle usually takes about 4 weeks. This procedure will continue till all custom colors are coming up to the expectations of the designer.
Please be aware that the final color release/decision is the responsibility of the customer (vendor/designer).
