Bringing Chinese characters to GMK keycaps

From designers grundlemere and NathanAlphaMan comes GMK Shanshui! Featuring the classic White on Black colorway, GMK's WS1 on CR - this set brings Chinese characters to GMK keycaps for the first time. Base kits are offered in either Simplified or Traditional Chinese characters, with mods in Chinese and sublegend alphas in the Cangjie input system, named for the legendary creator of the written Chinese language.

A Cangjie monolegend alphas kit can be paired with your favorite WS1 and CR sets, such as GMK White on Black or GMK Minimal, or if purchased with one of the base kits, is generously kitted to cover two boards!

And this set wouldn't be complete without the Shanshui novelty kit! Inspired by the sights and culture of the Li River near Guilin, China, this kit includes novelties of the fishing cormorant, phoenix tail bamboo, Li River landscapes under moonlight, and other iconic images to complete the theme of your board. As Guilin people say of their land nestled within the world-famous South China Karst, it's the best scenery under heaven.

Also available are 3 RAMA Caps:
Shan - The ancient Liushutong script character for "Mountain" - Black aluminum w/ White Enamel Fill
Shui - The ancient Liushutong script character for "Water" - E-White Aluminum w/ Black Enamel Fill
Chop - Designer grundlemere's personal chop - these are used in China to sign documents in lieu of a signature - Black PVD Brass w/ Red Enamel Fill

Mess of mixed up keys

They might as well have came in a bag. GMK tray wasn't damaged but keycaps were a mess inside. Legends look ok.

Sorry to hear that your GMK Shanshui keycaps arrived messily! GMK has recently taken strides to create recyclable packaging for a more eco-friendly experience. That said, we understand that it can still be improved upon, so we appreciate your feedback and will pass it on to GMK. If you're looking for a more permanent way to store or display your keycaps, I would definitely recommend checking out our in-house polycarbonate keycap trays: https://cannonkeys.com/products/cannonkeys-keycap-trays
