The Fun Computer Key has a peel and stick backing so that it can be applied to just about anything!

Seems like its a sticker.

If these were caps, they would be designed for rubber domes, and rubber domes come in all sorts of sizes.

So most likely sticker

The ones from SP are real keycaps - you can use them on your Cherry MX-based keyboard.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

The Amazon ones - no idea.

The Signature Plastics (SP) ones - yep!  I got one or two of those in my Crap Bag - they are fine.

BTW SP is who makes the keycaps for most of the group buys around here.
