Will these keycaps work?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm wanting to buy new keycaps for the steelseries 6gv2 mechanical keyboard i got a week ago. I went on a website that I found today called Pimpmykeyboard, and its extremely cheap, $1.50 per key(its kind of the only choice I have at the moment because I spent most of my money on the keyboard so I got around $5 to waste). I know they are legit but will my keys work if i replace it with those keycaps that say stuff like "Panic", "I need a drink", etc. The reason I am asking is because the website says that the keys are "non-functional" in caps at the front of the page and i dont know what they mean by that. The keycaps are just for decoration or would they work with my keyboard?

I don't know about those guys, but Wasdkeyboards will sell a full set of custom caps for $49. If you go through their keyboard customizer, they let you choose whether you want a full keyboard or just the keycaps.

Oh, I heard about wasdkeyboards but i did not know that they sold individual keycaps, i thought it was only in sets. Thanks for telling me. I have a quick question if you have the answer to it, that would be great. Do you know how long the "first class mail package"($1.45) shipping option is? Would it take the keycap around a week to arrive, or more\\less? I looked it up and people are saying around 3 days. If so, then i wonder why "3 day select" is $14. :/
(EDIT: Nevermind, I found the answer to my question in the FAQ question. Thanks!)
