Weekly Updates

Hello Everyone, 

This page is to try to improve individual product updates. When I have news I'll do my best to update this page, otherwise no news means its still being produced or shipped to us or that I have nothing to report.

If there is a product not listed here, feel free to comment on the product and I'll try to add it. The comments will be moderated for any spam/abusive/toxic behaviour.

Thank you all

Keysets

Current GMK and KAT Timeline is about 46-52 weeks (about 10 months-year), I believe both manufacturers are increasing capacity but that’s the window vendors are working with at the moment.

  1. Corne LP Keyboards - These have been shipped with one order missing a Pro Micro :( Getting Boardsource.xyz to ship more to us. 
  2. KAT Atlantis - KAT in general still waiting on been in constant contact with zFrontier and Keyreative but they are also massively busy.

  10. GMK Bentro r2 - Manufacturer is not happy with initial production run and doing more colour sampling to ensure the best product. New estimated ship date is now: Q3, 2021.

Deskmats

Normally deskmats take around 5-6 months to get to proxies but lately it's been a bit slower. 

    1. SA Mizu, GMK Bread, Winter Hour - Bad news. The shipment was accidentally delivered to the wrong unit in our building. Where they declined the shipment and it was shipped back to UPS. UPS started tracing last week and going through containers looking for the 15 boxes. We've heard back from UPS and the boxes were destroyed. We've re-ordered but don't expect the shipment to come in for another 3-4 months. Please reach out to us for alternative options. Update: Production of re-order is complete. Expecting these to arrive late May/early June. 
    2. GMK Oni, GMK Red Dragon deskmats -  These have shipped out.
    3. GMK Sumi Deskmats -  Bad news regarding GMK Sumi deskmats - it looks like there was a mixup with Ghost Koi <-> Sakura mat numbers, we got way more Sakura, and not enough Ghost Koi mats than expected.

      We've fulfilled what we can of the Ghost Koi orders, but going to immediately place another order with the manufacturer to have the rest covered. I'm going to assume it'll be a 2-3 months before we get them in.

      Thanks for your patience everyone. Please reach out to us for alternative options. Update: We should be receiving the new order of Ghost Koi at the end of May/early June.
    4. KAT Mizu - These have shipped out.
    5. GMK Yuru DeskmatsThere was a problem with Nightscape deskmats where the manufacturer did not use the approved sample with the result having elevated darks. All vendors received deskmats not up to spec and have had to re-order. We expect the new shipment to come in the end of Q2 2021. The first batch will be up for sale as B-stock shortly.
    6. Mono Wave Deskmats - These have shipped out.
    7. Dixiemech - Floral/9009 -  Had issues with shipment of these deskmats. We ended up having to re-order which means these will be delayed for another few months. Expect these to arrive in late July/early August.
    8. Monochrome Series - received news that these are still in production until about mid-March before they're shipped to vendors. I estimate sometime in late April/May before we all get them.
    9. GMK Masterpiece Deskmat
      Bad news regarding just the Masterpiece Wave deskmats - there was a mix-up with Square <-> Wave mat numbers on the manufacturers end. We got a ton of Square, and not enough Wave mats than what was ordered.

      We've fulfilled what we can of the Masterpiece orders, but are expecting another 2-3 months before we get more Wave deskmats in. Thanks for your patience everyone. Please reach out to us for alternative options. Currently in production. We expect it to arrive sometime in June.
    10. Synthwave Series - We received news that these deskmats are now expected to arrive in June/July 2021.The original has been approved but the variants are being revised.

    https://boardsource.xyz/help/605ac583aa13bc218445df8b  - May 7th - Boardsource will be shipping the Mark 65 to us next week. If all goes well with no shipping delays or inventory processing issues, we hope to begin shipping to customers the week of May 17th. 

  2. Ducky IODINE - Delivery Date Status update - Delayed until June 4th/ Cancellations now accepted until May 14th. 

    With the exception of the add-on Dye-Sub keycaps everything has been completed and is awaiting production assembly. The unfortunate news that we wish we did not have to share with you is that the Keycaps have been delayed.  We were very displeased with the results of the pre-production samples that did not match the quality of the pilot run samples featured in the product images and in the video reviews published online and for that reason we need to push the delivery date forward an additional 6 weeks.  Below is an image of the progress that has been made over the past few weeks with the supplier.  We have also centered the logo on the escape key.
    We understand how disappointed some of you may be about this delay so we will be extending the cancellation deadline until May 14th if you wish to receive a full refund for your pre-order. 

    We appreciate your support and your patience and want to ensure you receive a quality product.

Laura - December 17, 2020

Updates on SA SAIL? Others (I’m assuming in the US) have received their sets, so an update on the fact that they’ve shipped and an estimate on when you expect to receive them and ship them would be appreciated.

Melissa Wang - December 17, 2020

Any updates on the GMK Sumi deskmats? I ordered back in August and have yet to receive any updates through email.

Jason Cheung - December 17, 2020

I ordered the SA Mizu deskmat and the estimated date of delivery was stated for Late Nov 2020. I see that the KAT Mizu deskmat has posted weekly updates but not the SA Mizu deskmat (which was an earlier group buy).
For reference, I have Order #HERO-4966.
An email back about the status of the SA Mizu deskmat would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
