Anywhere to buy PBT Colemak printed key caps?
« on: Wed, 26 October 2011, 00:32:33 »
Is there anywhere I could get a set of PBT key caps with legends printed for Colemak (not-Qwerty)? Other than ordering a custom set from Signature Plastics which likely isn't feasible I don't think i have much luck, do I? Any place that does custom PBT key caps for a reasonable price? I've already got a custom set of ABS Colemak printed keys from WASD Keyboards but was looking to try PBT. Might just have to go for a blank set otherwise.

The people over at Signature Plastics are actually very nice and would probably be able to quote you a really good price. Just be sure to be very professional in your request. They were more than willing to help me with a request to get nice clear caps with a matte finish on all sides.

you might be able to have WASD etch or engrave a blank set. he need some extra key to calibrate his laser though so you may have to buy 2 sets so her has enough keys.

Guess I'll give that a shot. Can you give a ballpark figure for cost based on your experience?
