White Keycaps on a Black Keyboard

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
This is a tough one. As keyboard layouts are usually one color. But I think the contrast of white keycaps on a black board look very good:
example 1
example 2

So the question is where can one buy white keycaps (with black font engraving) from locally?

Edit:
Here is a link for other contrasting keycaps colors:

That white does look quite good.

So I will also ask where white blanks like in the picture could be procured.

That would be 104 keycap or so. As anything less with a mix of black and white keycaps just doesn't look right. There is also the PBT vs ABS thing going around but I'm not sure if one is better then the other in this case confused.gif

I have the tenkeyless version and I got the key caps from imsto over at GH. They're light grey on white, PBT and it's a 104 set.

If you want locally then it's either eBay or GH's Classifieds. Also PBT > ABS.

I had seen a pic of a 104 with white caps on a black case and am in the market possibly to do this on my Filco. That is one very nice looking board.
