Are your keycaps compatible with backlit keyboards?

Our keycaps are not compatible with backlighting. They can still be used with compatible Cherry MX keyboards, but the legends will not glow with the backlighting. However, our colored keys will have a faint glow when installed over LED backlighting since they are molded from colored plastic.

Our keys will have a faint glow when installed onto a backlit keyboard. Here is an example of our blank keys installed onto a white backlit keyboard.

Another option is to put printed keycaps on your CODE keyboard, and although the legends will not be backlit illuminated, it still enables legibility in the dark for certain keycap colors using the ambient light from the keyboard and keycap.

Colored keycaps are as follows in the example photo: 
R4: Brown, Olive, White, Beige, Slate, Graphite, Charcoal, Black
R3: Purple, Lavender, Navy Blue, Royal Blue, Sky Blue, Mint, Green, Woodland
R2: Pink, Maroon, Red, Orange, Yellow
