Any chance of getting the front faces of keys etched?
It's possible, but the extra setup time would be expensive. I think we'd have to charge about $25 extra to make it worthwhile. If everyone thinks the price is fair, then I'll eventually add this option into the Custom Keyboard Designer.
Edit: I forgot to specify it's $25 EXTRA.
If that is what it costs then of course it is fair!
I can't believe you have been throwing away countless sales over a $25.00 addon fee? Make it $35.00 there is that enough?
You run the world's best custom keyboard dezine company. So by law, you must support front printing.
I go to your website all the time to buy my dream keyboard but then always get stuck because I can't actually custom design my keyboard the way I want. I got so frustrated that I ended up letting Rosewill rip me off (and you) by buying a RETARDED Rosewill keyboard when I really should have just bought a simple WASD keyboard without any customization and I would have been much better off.
Of course to really make use of front face printing you need to get your flash font problems fixed. Because ppl want Greek letters and things on their keyboards. I assume we can't do that yet.
The thing is you have an expensive Laser that can blast any vector image into a keycap. You have a computer that can perfectly understand any of my 100,000 fonts or 20 Million cliparts. Except you can't make use of 99.9% of it due to letting Flash get in your way. Right?
If I was healthy I would just write u a little keyboard designer proggy for real computers that would do ANYTHING YOU WANT
with no weirdo limitations. But alas I am horribly crippled with pain from typing on a stupid evil rubberdome over membrane keyboard. So I can't code u anything but believe me I want to. You are losing a ton of sales due to a few simple errors and its very sad.
There is another problem I can fix for you, later, cause its nice and simple.
But right now I really need to know is it possible for me to buy a keyboard + keycaps from u where all keycaps are the same profile?
I need all same profile so that my crashpads will work correctly. When every row of keys is shaped different it changes the feel of the keys on that row with crashpads and I think a little bit with O-rings. I really need all my keys to feel the same. I am dying of pain and I need a simple keyboard, not a convoluted sculpted one.
In all my years of typing when I was healthy I never sat round thinking "Man, I wish my keys were sculpted to different angles on different rows". I can type seemingly just as well on either format. But logically it makes sense to be NOT sculpted since my fingers actuate keys by moving DOWN toward the center of the Earth.
With flat keys all finger-to-keycap-impacts are the same. With sculpted you must press straight down onto an angled key with a different angle on each row... this makes no sense. You don't press keys at an angle, you press them down
I think you are wasting a ton of money and time on complicated keys rows when you only need *1* row of keys.
You have sadly already lost one sale from me to evil Rosewill. I am trying so hard to buy 1-3 keyboards from you (depending on if I can get EVERYTHING I want).
If I can pick just 1 row of keys I would pick the tallest row and flattest. With flattest being most important. I really need them all to have the same profile. I am literally dying here.
Another thing I am interested in is having my springs lubed. Have you ever done that? yes I know its labor intensive. Yes I know its expensive. Have I mentioned I am DYING? I don't care about money. I just want a good keyboard.
If u don't provide such a service that is totally ok but it just means I hafta order my keyboard(s) from you and have them shipped to some geekhacker to lube them for me. My finger nerves are horrifically sensitive and I can feel the grindiness of each keypress. Mentally I can ignore the grindiness. But my nerves are not controlled by my brain and they feel the grindiness and get annoyed by it. So I decided to blow a bunch of money on this lubing thing since ppl say it really smooths things out for us ppl who have had our lives destroyed by high-impact membrane keyboards.
