Update 2:

Due to the substantial difference between lettering and blank. This will be a group buy for blank keys (shift, alt, and control)

I understand if you want to back out. Please log your interests however if you would like to purchase a set of blank modifiers.

However, I won't mind leading the group buy for the white lettering if enough people log their interests for that.

P.S. pricing for black lettering is the same as the pricing for white lettering



Pricing Update:

Pricing for blank keycaps is as follows:

25 sets          $26.98 / set
50 sets          $15.21 / set
75 sets          $11.63 / set
100 sets        $9.85 / set
150 sets        $8.06 / set
200 sets        $7.16 / set

Pricing Update:


Pricing for this set of 6 keys with white lettering is as follows:

25 sets          $52.00 / set
50 sets          $28.53 / set
75 sets          $21.38 / set
100 sets        $17.80 / set
150 sets        $14.22 / set
200 sets        $12.43 / set

Update:
1. Alt and Control Modifiers will be 1.25 sized so they can fit Filco/Das/Ducky.
2. 2 Shift keys sizes: 2.25 and 2.75, standard Filco/Das/Ducky


Colors will be:

RR for Control
VCS/VCM for Shift
BFN for Alt

- Feel free to make color suggestions.
- special thanks to Dox for keycap sizes =]

Looks more like BFN to me, but the white balance might be off.

Count  me in for 2 of each, as long as they are suitable for my FLICO Majestouch 2. BTW how much do you think it will cost this time to ship to Australia?

I'm interested, how will this look on a filco? are the size of the modifier's correct for the 87 key board? Any chance font/character layout could match Round 3? or have the option to get a set that matches round 3 MO?

Will the Alt and Control keys be 1.25 (as on a Filco, Leopold, etc.) or 1.5 (as in the photo) keys wide? Also how much will this cost me?

Font will be standard and it should fit any tenkeyless board. The modifiers on the "STANDARD" if I am not mistake are also regular sized and use the standard filco-esque font.

Main problem is if it will match the standard set (colorwise) well.

I will be in for several sets IF there are two kinds of RGB sets. One as pictured above which actually WON'T fit filcos, and one that do. So basically both 1.25 and 1.5 RGB sets. Otherwise you're alienating a lot of regular tenkeyless users since the 1.5 is for a win keyless version which isn't really mainstream.

Also is it just me or does the font alignment on the RGB pictured seem random? Control seems more centered than the Alt and Shift.

I'm in for a couple of sets.  It wouldn't bother me if the ALT were a little darker than that, maybe BFK?  I'm good with whatever everyone else wants though.

You should have no problem getting 30 buyers for the two different sets as I'm sure a lot of people will be buying multiple sets. One RGB set for filco/das/ducky and one RGB set for win keyless.

Also, since these keys will be made by SP, are you planning to use the DCS?(I think it's called that) profile that Group 1 and Group 3 MO sets were made with? If so..., please note, these will look super crappy being a different profile than stock filco/ducky etc. keys once placed on a board with stock keys.  They would ideally fit on a board with existing SP keys of the DCS profile.  I think the font should match group 3, group1, or blank. I think offering all three would also beneficial. I'm betting most of your orders would be for the set that matched Group 3's MO. Anybody else?

Right justified font? The picture shows left justified and most keys are left justified(IE, the text starts on the left edge of the key).

Random thought: I like how "Control" is actually spelled out, not shortened to "Ctrl". Would "Alternate" fit on the "Alt" key?

my mistake on right justified, I actually meant left lol

if there is to much discrepancy, they will probably be blank.

calavera - are the measurements different for win keyless?

if the measurements are to different, I am only going to stick with getting a Filco/Das/Ducky compatible set

The win keyless are wider of course. So yes they're different.
Just have TWO options. No alternate fonts, no different wording, no stupid starcraft logos and all that bs.

1x RGB set for filco/das/ducky/poker with fonts or no fonts. (forgot about the poker)
1x RGB set for win keyless with fonts or no fonts.

Although there is far less demand for the win keyless ones, people should keep in mind that the win keyless alt and ctrl fit noppoo choco mini's. The right shift obviously doesn't.
But see how many are interested in each and if one comes up short, ditch it. (It'd be neat if the RGB set for filco/das/ducky/poker included win keyless alt and ctrl though lol)
I have a feeling the win keyless won't be that popular.

Keep it simple so we can move this quick.
Also, shamelessly taken pic from sixty's thread in deskthority:



I'm not sure how similar the color is to the OTD one but I prefer the above but with white fonts.

I would be interrested in a couple of sets, but would prefer if you added a 1.25 left shift for all the ISO-keyboards out there. Just make every set include both kinds of shifts?

I made up these colors with OTD member Uranium about two months back or so and ran a group order for them here.
The first batch that Signature Plastics delivered was messed up and had randomly bold and centered legends. You can see that on the OTD pics on the Control key. The bad news is that they ran out of the blue plastic with no restockplanned, so you will not be able to make the exact same keys anymore. All the blues they have now are a very different shade.

Anyway, for some eye-candy here are the final pictures I took the other day of the final keys:

Pricing info should be available tomorrow. Looks like interest for the winkeyless version is very small, looking back it only looks like 2 or 3 want it so that will probably not be a part of this order.

Caps will have white lettering. This is 99% certain, will ask if can get the same price in case a couple want blanks or blacks

But since SP ran out of the blue plastic, I dunno what that blue should replace them. :(
