I am straight-up in love with custom keyboards. I use my keyboard every day. Having a custom keyboard makes me feel like my workspace has more personality. I’m happier typing away on something that reflects my taste and adds an element of luxury to what can be a mundane task. Also, the kids LOVE them. I got hooked on them after seeing my daughter’s keyboard that her boyfriend customized as a gift. We liked it so much, we got my son a customized board too.
I’ve scoured the internet for cool keycaps. Some are just a few keys, others are entire sets. I love the special keys, but the full sets give you a complete look at the keyboard. Also, the super specialty keys are show pieces, but not as functional. They don’t actually identify the keys… but they’re awesome for replacing function or direction keys. The one-offs and small sets are still SUPER FUN. For the full keycap sets, I looked for sets that were easy to read and functional but still had style. If you’re committing to a full set, functionality is a Must Have… see what I did there?
This list begins with the single or small set keycaps. Then I’ll show you a couple of good boards for complete custom key sets—lastly, the sweet, sweet full-set keycaps. I recommend zooming in on these. The details are lost in a quick glance.
