Any Keycap Manufacturers in the USA? Of any size...?
« on: Sun, 19 April 2020, 02:38:27 »
Other than Signature Plastics, is there any other manufacturer of keycaps that make their product here in the USA I might check with for a project? 

Besides Covid19 making anything overseas a no-go at the moment, I'd like to find someone here to work with if possible. 

I'm interested in having a custom set of keycaps made with a specific font, and I'm open to quantity, choosing from some of what they are already able to do, etc...  I don't need to do a group buy, I'm fine with purchasing the quantity myself, etc.

Is there anyone in the USA that I might check with?  Even if they do low number runs, with lesser machinery and tooling.  I'd appreciate any suggestions if anyone knows of anyone I should check with.

Thanks!

not unless you know someone with $150k and an injection molding machine

if you're actually reading other people's posts on geekhack in 2020 you're doing something wrong
