I have the other problem. I made a few hundred keycaps cause everyone said they wanted some... and then I sold lie 10. :P
I expect they will eventually sell over a year, but it is a far cry from a "business".

That's the other fear. Investing thousands into a machine, hundreds of hours learning/failing/succeeding finally only to have nobody care. I love your keycaps and I love that you are sharing your art with the rest of us. I have dedicated my time to the Apple M3501, currently working on a drop in replacement PCB for the OEM case, but the goal will be to reuse the PCB in a custom M3501 case.

Love the look!

The fun part is making the keycaps.
But selling is indeed the real challenge, sometimes the costs involved in the development and manufacturing just have to be absorbed.

Thank you for sharing your experience and the top-notch process documentation.

Hoping that your endeavour has worked out favourably. All the best!
