MX Xxxxx key caps
« on: Tue, 08 March 2011, 14:26:58 »
Wondered about this, a way to mark your boards fast and clearly ;D

So either MX letters or
Black on mx-blue stem colored key:
MX
Blue

White? on mx-black stem colored key:
MX
Black


White(or something else, black is too dark for brown) on mx-brown stem colored key:
MX
Brown


Black on mx-red stem colored key:
MX
Red

Black on mx-white stem colored key:
MX
Clear


Would get these if I get someone to compare the samples with stems. About 20 packets, 5 keys each, 3-5$ for all+shipping...
So I should add something useless here yes? Ok, ok...

Nice idea, but why not using clears, so you can see the color of the stems ...

ps: sorry.


Please use these order-ID-s:

MXBLUE
MXBLACK
MXBROWN
MXRED
MXCLEAR

price is $0.4 per key, if 25 are produced.

I'm off for holly days until Sunday 20th March 2011!

The vote-system will work without me. Just send your order lists to me, 7bit_vote.

You will get some statistics from time to time.

Don't ask 7bit or me any questions during that time. We will not answer!

There will be no update of payment status. Anybody should keep track of that themselves! It is sufficient to pay when I'm back again.

For questions, please read the first post in the main thread.

Have a lot of fun ...

I need the color codes for some of these keys:

MXBLUE   BO (Blue) ???
MXBLACK   NN (Black)
MXBROWN <---- we had no brown so far ...
MXRED   RA (Red)
MXCLEAR <--- clear is not possible

Hmm, Clear is some near white and Brown, I would aim near the MX-stems. That was my original idea on these...

TGH for brown?
Also, can't quite make out what would be right for those clears. There is a few white options, anyone wanna go and decide?

Did you ask sixty?

I would recommend a dirty white. It must be a white which is not yellow at all, more into the blue direction. A cold white ...

You've got 6 hours left!

Otherwise ...

There's UK-11 which is colorless translucent, which is basically what MX Clear keystems are. If that can't be used, BFM is a very pretty blue-white. WA, WFK, and WCK are your other whites and off-whites. I think WA has the bluest cast, but it might be too white. Maybe WQ?
You can call me... Keyboard Otaku... or not quite...

I;'m not sure if it works with double shots. At least the clear plastic does not work. I will ask about it ...

UK-11 would be best, if not someone which is near to it.
