Where can I buy mechanical keyboard keys?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I looked on eBay and people sell the 104 set of keys (I already have a keyboard, I just want a set of red keys for the looks) for $39.99. However, they are completely blank and I would need to do the engraving myself, which I do not know how to do.

Does anyone know where I can buy a set of 104 keys (that fir Cherry MX Blacks) that are engraved? Preferably red keys.

WASDKeyboards.com

You have to change the color of the keys yourself. You can also customize the engraving of the keycaps.
When you checkout, it will give you the option to only buy the keys.

Click on one keycap, change the color to red in the menu and check the box at the bottom to apply changes to the whole board. All the keycaps will turn red and engraved with no fill.

You can also check out http://www.elitekeyboards.com/products.php?sub=access

However, these are pricier due to the custom key caps.

I wanted a board so bad with red keycaps myself. Didn't want to paint or dye a different set red.
I ended up buying a KBC Poker, but I'll always remember to get them from WASD.
Great guys there, spoke to them yesterday about buying rubber O-rings.
