Im in the search of top and side printed keycaps. Help me!
« on: Wed, 14 February 2018, 14:59:25 »
Im looking for keycaps like the ducky mini ones, for a 60% keyboard.
Anyone knows where to buy them?

Do you need them backlit or non-backlit?

Massdrop had this a while back:  https://www.massdrop.com/buy/side-lit-abs-keycap-set?mode=guest_open

And Ducky and Vortex had a few non-backlit sets a while back but it's all out of stock.

Filco Ninja has that style too but I don't think they sell those separately.

I think it was "trendy" a while back but these days we don't see it too much anymore.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but Maxkeyboards has custom print caps that allows for side and top printing here: http://www.maxkeyboard.com/products/cherry-mx-keycap/ansi-layout-keycap-set/
What I lack in time, resources, and knowledge I make up for in passion, enthusiasm and ignorance.

There are options to print on both the top and the side on that site. If you click into one of the key set options, it will provide you with a list of available configuration. From there, you can choose side/top printed legends.

Send them an email and ask if they can do what you need. A lot of times, these companies are very responsive to help and happy to accommodate any possible request.

Hmmmm at this point I feel like what you're looking for is very specific, might be better off buying Ducky mini or KBParadise V60 and sell your existing keyboard.

https://www.massdrop.com/buy/kbp-v60-plus-mini-mechanical-keyboard?mode=guest_open
https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/search.php?keyword=kbparadise+v60
(You can buy it from other sites too, these are just an examples)

May I ask which keyboard you already have?

If you check out the configuration page, you will see an option to "Upload Your Own Artwork" - they say on the site that this option gives you "total control" over the print on the caps. If you download the template file, you can use either Inkscape or Illustrator to design the legends on the caps to your liking. It takes time, but if you are looking for something specific that you can't find anywhere else, it might just be worth it.

If you don't want to invest your time without knowing 100% for sure they will be able to do this, send them an email and ask. It might take a little longer and cost a little more, but you will get what you want.

I will ask them and I will say here what they told me, so if anyone also want keycaps like that can buy them.
