How do you guys store your keycap sets?
« on: Sat, 28 June 2014, 14:41:24 »
With more and more sets coming my way as group buys finally are produced and shipped, I am finding myself at loss for an effective way to store sets that I am not currently using, especially considering I like to combine sets (using red on white and white on red combined TaiHao at the moment). How do you guys do it? I am especially afraid of losing just one keycap here or there  :confused:

My storage system consists of zip bags as well, with some name on the set bag to help identify them such as Cherry FR, or somesuch and all the novelty/non full set keys just get all mixed together. Then all the bags go in boxes I have saved from my Diesel jeans orders of which I have some boxes seperated by key materials and US or 'foreign' layouts.

CPTBadAss turned me onto Amac Boxes from the Container Store and those have worked out the best for me.

He also has a nice photo here of what his collection used to look like.

^ I use something very similar - I find that with the ones I use you can get 4 full keycap sets per box :)

Not as organized as yuiop but it's basically the same: I've got a huge transparent box (way bigger than the ones in the picture) in which I put lots of tiny boxes with all my keycaps.

Picked up a few of those from EK when I visited, really great for storing full sets. Also have some of those Amac boxes CPT was talking about, from the Container Store.

As an FYI, I just ran into these on keypop.net: http://www.keypop.net/product/keycap-display-case

I have no idea if they're any good, but they look pretty decent, so I might give these cases a try. I purchased a couple of those EK cases, but I don't like the fact that they require me popping the keys onto stem-holders. Called me paranoid, but I just want as little possibility for the plastic to change shape as possible.

My current collection is still stored like that except I have multiple of those hobby boxes and those amac boxes now. And another plastic bin/container for random stuff I've accumulated like shrink wrap.

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Here's how I store my key cap sets.

As stated previously, CPTBadAss turned me on to the Amac Boxes at the container store. The smaller one (#60380) is for 10-keys and the taller one (60420) fits a full set of alphas and modifiers and includes spacebars. Often times, I'll use multiple large boxes for sets that have lots of kits.

If you start getting a lot of sets, then you'll probably want to box up your boxes. For that, I use the Men's Shoebox, which also comes from the Container store. These stack as well.

Below are a few shots to better illustrate:

My good keys are in zip-lock bags in a cardboard box. The cardboard box was the packaging of a MacBook pro, so good quality and opens like a briefcase.

Small sets and random novelties in little ziplock bags with cardboard backing+filler.  Full sets in ziplock bags in a box.

I store them in a zip bag and throw them into a drawer. But then again I only have two original Cherry sets and don't need one place to store them yet. I also store my few novelty keys in a cardboardbox thats inside a metal box with all my lube, switches and tools.
