Recommend a Keycap Set
« on: Tue, 31 October 2023, 04:03:39 »
Hello! Iíve recently gotten into the Hobby and Iíve bought some aftermarket keyboards that donít have keycaps. I have little eye for aesthetics so Iím more than happy to look at any type of keycaps, no preferences. So Iíd love to get yíallís recommendations! Suggest me a keycap set! (Links would be nice but if not /shrug).

For me, backlit cherry keycaps are my first choice for work, because my office is too dark and I canít type without looking at the keycaps. This is my problem. :'(

I daily drive an SA set from Signature Plastics. I recommend looking on the used market for some out of print sets as well. There a lot of unique colorways you don't see on shelves. A few that come to mind are the Brown/Light Brown in Amazing Chocolatier, White/Green in Camping, etc.
Always looking for Alps SKCM/SKCL switches. Feel free to DM.

I love PBT deep sea predator and kabuki cho. There are also many cheap xda sets with vivid colors on Aliexpress and I love it as I'm a fan of colorful things  :p
