Laser Engraving Topre Blanks
« on: Fri, 22 July 2011, 19:16:52 »
I am considering Laser Engraving my Yellow Topre Blanks and I was wondering if any of you guys know how can do this kind of job and how much do you think will cost me to engrave 40 PBT keycaps?

Actually I like the idea, since there is no Hungarian layouts available anywhere, but I figured out it's easier to adjust to the US ANSI, or to touch type.

Custom replacement PBT spacebars for Topre keybars would be another good idea.  KBC already have the tools.

They have to make a mold first, but since they can make cherry PBT keys there is no reason not to make molds for the Topre as well, especially since the original Topre spacebar is made of poor quality ABS plastic.
