White Side-Printed Caps with Red Font
« on: Thu, 22 September 2011, 01:15:08 »
Hi Guys,

I was looking through the albums of otd.kr a few days ago and I saw this keyboard:

[ Attachment Invalid Or Does Not Exist ] 27031[/ATTACH]

I was wondering where and how I could obtain these beautiful keycaps.

Thank you.

Your easiest option is blank white keycap and waterslide transfer decal and make it yourself. Since it is on the front and not being touched it should be durable enough method. If they were mass produced at all possible to track them down on taobao maybe, but those otd guys do a lot of one off custom stuff a lot.

I like how they took off their doubleshots to put those ones on.

An alternative method that may or may not ruin everything is to try and dye the letter onto the front of the keycap.

Ah thank you :)

I was wondering if it was a one-off cause lots of them definitely do some crazy stuff on their own.

I also like the way the keycaps themselves look. Are they signature plastics dsa keys? I remember wanting them but I hear just buying one order of 87/104 keys is very expensive. Does anyone have a group buy or something for these keycaps?

Nothing special there.. just a DSA(spherical, medium) profile, light beige keycap set made from Signature Plastics and arranged by a OTD member called jjini in Korea. (same guy who arranged the wyse replica keycaps w/ light blue lettering..)
The red lettering was done by a friend... using a lettering sticker tool.. whatever they call it...lol
Also, the keycaps are made from PBT material, so the quality is pretty good.

I get many questions about the keyboard. It was a masterpiece custom keyboard made from a guy named Ung-Sam(hopefully the spelling is correct) in OTD.
Known as probably the best custom keyboard made from OTD. The weight is as heavy as a normal dumbbell that u would use at home... and the key stroke/sound is amazing...
Take a look at this link.. it's the fifth one called 356-mini

Man... I was just really starting to enjoy my filco and then I clicked that link. Those are amazing and now I really want an aluminum case for my filco. I see that there is going to be a groupbuy for aluminum poker cases soon. Maybe we could arrange for a aluminum filco case as well.
