GeekHack Key Caps
« on: Mon, 07 January 2013, 12:10:34 »
UPDATE:
Thanks to sth, this post has been moved to the GeekHack Wiki and is being updated there. You can find the post at this link.

This thread will be kept open for further discussion, but the OP will not be kept up-to-date.


Original Post:
Since the launch of GeekHack, there have been many homages to our beloved community in the form of novelty keys with the "GH" branding on them.

Below is a list of the various GeekHack key caps that have been created. It's broken down by format (cherry, topre, etc.), then by type (doubleshot, dyesub) and finally by style. If you know of one that is missing, please speak up and provide as much detail as you can. Specifically, if you could include a link to the Group Buy that the key is from, or what specific SP colors were used, that would be a big help.

I'm currently on the final leg of my journey, and it's the damn RA2.0 red on white. Should be here from Singapore soon though!
Also, do you already have the valentine white on pink/white on dark pink? Don't forget those!

There are a few that aren't in that style as well. I have a black on red geek hack from keyboard story. I'll have to take some pics.
And there are also some lasered ones around. Like white gh on black.

At some point I may decided I must have the WASD etched, but for now I'm focused on the doubleshots.

More updates! There's CCnG green on white, and an older green on white that's a darker green.
And the backspace is actually dark grey.
The three modifiers I know of are white on red, black on red and orange on grey.
The secret alps I have is orange on black.

Potato of the collection. The CCnG is a little overexposed, but you can see the difference in green.

The bottom right one is the alps cap.
The top right that's black/orange/white is from qwerkeys.

@ Halverson - Congrats man . That really is an impressive collection. I can't imagine the time and effort that went into it. From that perspective, to me, it is as impressive as any of the clack collections. You are to be commended.

Thanks for offering! Already sent you a PM.


On a different note, does anyone know who made the key caps listed?  What made me think about that is when I added the QWERkeys edition, I wondered who else has made these in the past. Anyone know?  :confused:

Ok, I updated the list and included the manufacturers for those that have been mentioned. I also broke out the R4 into three different "styles" all based on the picture Halverson posted as well as Glissant's two images from this thread.

Here's Another Question
Do most of these keys come from complete sets?  For example, is the "White on RA Red" and "RA Red on White" from the Red Alert set? I know the Toxic Set features two GEEK HACK keys for example.

I'm guessing that the answer is yes, but there are still single caps printed as well which makes me think we should also include where they came from -- if we even have that information. Do we?

Most of the variations came from individual group buys, not from sets.  demik was running them monthly for a while.  Before that, iMav did them sporadically.  You should be able to find the threads in the GB subforum.

I can take one of those 1800s off your hands. Also, still have not heard back from that site that sells army surplus items in bulk :(

When glissant was searching to complete his collection I had the same idea and no one had any keys for me. glissant was able to get everything he wanted I believe, but I think everyone likes him and I was a relative nooblet at the time before I did the Lambda key group buy. It is going to be a near impossible journey but good luck! Don't give up after a couple months like I did.

The kiwi ALPS ones came from the GHSS or GeekHack Space Saver. This keyboard was availible for a very short amount of time on a site (57something or another). They are in the WYSE font, include a matching Star key, G and H keys, as well as a small bag that acompanied the Siig Minitouch that the keys came atop of.
There is also the MKC aluminum keys, here.

Potato of the collection. The CCnG is a little overexposed, but you can see the difference in green.

The bottom right one is the alps cap.
The top right that's black/orange/white is from qwerkeys.
are you still missing the RA 2.0 GH key?

I've seen a bucklingspring geekhack keycap somewhere, but as far as I know it was selfmade from a mx one. Or does anybody know if there was a real one?

Ripster made one out of a white on red Geekhack keycap. The process is documented on ripster.imgur.com

BTW, the 'geek hack' style black on grey, black on blue, orange on grey dye subbed PBT caps (as seen from Halverson's picture) are manufactured from imsto, not SP.

Are you also collecting 'G' and 'H' keys made by various manufacturers that sold to GH? (Both imsto and SP did these)

Hey I got some of those :), I used to have a lot more but these make great giveaways. I took about 50 of them to defcon and randomly gave them to people I met. KBDmania has some cool ones too!

He has it at the bottom of the list, and it was part of a Siig mini touch geekhack thing. Which I need to put up a wtb thread for....
On another note! There is indeed a white on red geekhack alps cap! Can add that to the list.

I'm sorry Acetrak, I'm not tracking.

I added numbers to the list -- there are 60! -- anyway, can you tell me what numbers you're referring to?

Well, I thought about that, but since every key cap set has a "G" and an "H", wouldn't that include them all? I'm new here, so if there were specific packs made, I suppose we should add those to the list. I just don't know what they are, or how many.

Green text on white, or white text on green?

If it's white text on kiwi green, then it's #60.  :D

Also, I just added the January GH Pack.
