colored keycaps

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Does anyone here use custom colors on the WASD keys or something like a colored escape key or do you just prefer the straight out black?

Looking for some ideas on custom keycaps if anyone uses something a little different.


edit: also does anyone know of a guide to tell me what size/style key I need to order for the various keys?

I like the white a lot but how dirty do the keys get? My concern is they will get pretty bad looking over time.

Since they're not glossy or anything it shouldn't be too bad. But yeah, they'll get dirty faster than black keys.
