Frequently asked questions
What the heck are these?

These are handmade keyboard keycaps. The underside includes an interface for mounting on Cherry MX mechanical keyboards. They are made by sculpting clay, creating a silicone mold, and then casting the piece in resin plastic under pressure.

Are these 3D Printed?

No. All of the keycap tops are sculpted by hand. The underside of the keycap is made using a $ynth 3.0 tool, which is a tool used by many makers to create consistent undersides with well-fitting stems.

How are these made?

They are made by sculpting clay, creating a silicone mold, and then casting the piece in resin plastic under pressure.

How many keycaps in each color are typically made?

These keycaps are made in small batches, typically under 5 molds at a time. Production numbers may be provided for some keycaps.

What if the keycap I received is not functional? (e.g., loose stem, cracked stem)

All keycaps are tested prior to being sent out, but I'm only human, and the physical properties of resin change over time. If your keycap has a loose stem, it may be possible to tighten it by briefly placing the cap in warm water and squeezing the stem together with light pressure. If your keycap arrives and the stem is not functional, please contact me and let me make it right.

What if the keycap I received is not identical to the photos?

The item photos are taken of the finished keycaps you will receive. Within a batch, there will be variations in coloration. If there are any really strange variants, they will be sold as separate listings. Listing photos are taken to reflect the actual color of the item, but may not always be 100% accurate. Basically, buy assuming you'll receive one of the pictured caps, but please understand they are all unique pieces.
