Which keycaps to UHK... Please help me (I am novice)
« on: Tue, 27 November 2018, 20:24:40 »
Hi, everybody, I am ambsolutely novice in the keycap-discipline, and in the whole mechanical keyboard science in general. But since I have "open mind" to give a chance for new "geeky" stuffs, I ordered an "UHK" keyboard. It is just "coming soon", the estimated delivery time is in January (approx.), but the point is that I would like change some keycaps on them, with customized text (and pictures). I wouldn't like use stickers, I'm searching some opportunity to order online customized keycaps. I mean, I upload my pictures and the firm create my keycaps, send them me, and I become happy...

So, please tell me which site is suitable my goals? And what type of keycaps I can buy being suitable to UHK?

Thanks!

The keyboard you chose has a lot of non standard keys so finding a key set that fits it is gonna be expensive because you probably have to buy multiple sets to fill in the non standard keys. Unless you go for XDA profile keycaps like this guy did it is doable.

Actually I would like to change just one keycap: the Enter, with something which has the picture/symbol you can see on my "avatar" in this forum. It is the "emblem" of my scripting programming language.

If you want custom labels then your only option is really WASDKeyboards. The keycaps are quite similar to the stock keycaps on the UHK, so pretty thin but otherwise ok. See the UHK website for the layout to see which size keycaps you need.
