Replacement Keykaps For Blackwidow?

  1. I'm rather liking my new Blackwidow Tournament Edition Stealth (It;s not perfect as the alignment is off on the printing of some keys like the "3", "4" & "5" keys), but I'd like to customize it a little by replacing some of the key caps. I'm thinking WASD, ESC and ENTER to start. Maybe do all the letter keys down the line to make them stand out from the modifier keys (Or the reverse).

    So I was wondering if others have done the same, and if so what key caps have you used? Razer doesn't sell custom key caps for they mechanical boards unfortunately. I found some Rosewill keys on Amazon but the font is very different from what Razer uses. I would love to just have arrows to replace the letters for WASD.

    So what has worked for you guys? Any custom keycap makers you have experience with? Anything I should watch out for?

    @ZATAi not sure on the replacing key caps, most likely you'll have to find a non-working mech. razer and scrap it for the keys. I also saw some corsair keyboard that might work , ill grab the link when i get to work.

    I'll second the WASDKeyboards suggestion for custom keycaps. I created my own personal Nvidia GeForce button using WASDKeyboards' online store. They did a damn good job, too.

    Check it out:

    On that note, I have a couple of Razer keycap keychains on hand that we hand out at events - keep this thread going and I'll pick 3 guys out to receive them by next Monday (17 Nov) ;)

    See, I, personally, think that Razer should sell textured or rubber keycaps, "W" keycaps with a bump, and some keycaps like the ones corsair sells ( here ). Specifically for the last one the "wave" shape.

    That is awesome, always wanted one of those. You really should sell those on the store, so many people want them.

    @wakoquacko Hydro, I couldn't agree more!! I think stuff like that would really sell well ... and if a person is already buying a $75+ item (like so many of them are) then picking up something really cool like that for relatively inexpensive would be really easy to justify.
     
  14. Very nice, thank you. I also found Elite Keyboards which looks pretty cool and very high end. They even have a frickin clear plastic keyboard dust cover. They call it a keyboard roof, Haha.

    That would be pretty cool. Would be nice if only because then they would have the same font as the other Razer keycaps. I'm tempted right now to change out all the keys due to the fonts being different.

    Heh, I always wanted to replace Esc, WASD and arrow keys with those green Razer logo keycaps. I bet blackwidow would look awesome that way!
     
  16. That is awesome if always wanted one and i agree with wakoquako you should start selling them i would buy like ten of them :)

    Yes please start selling them, I loooove the razer keymaps, I would replace pretty much my entire keybord, except one......the @ key. Linus Tech Tips called you guys out on it on their 2014 Razer Blade Review hehe. They said that it was weird and looked nothing like the traditional @ symbol. I agreed but also disagreed, I personally think it looks unique and kinda cool but can sometimes be hard to identify it as the actual @ key when you first get a razer keybord, but you eventually get used to it. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    The one key that comes to mind for me (and this is just in fun) but I'd like to change my Windows key to a Razer logo key and then remap it so instead of doing the usual windows deal, have it bring up Synapse when pressed.
