We hear you bought a new keyboard and it's a little 'different'. We try our best to support as many keyboards with custom keycap sets, but some of these newer compact keyboards are venturing into odd size keycap territory, so while we may be able to support them it does take a bit of work on your end (and our end) and there are some caveats to consider before delving deeper.
- As always, we cannot make custom 'backlit' (eg; shine-through) keycaps. A lot of the newer boards are all backlit, so please keep this in mind. Of course you can still put custom keycaps on a backlit keyboard, they just won't shine-through the legends like the keycaps that came with your keyboard, they will look like this; custom keycaps on backlit boards
- A lot of these newer non-standard boards utilize a R1 1.75 key for the right_shift (sometimes even enter), while we do carry this keycap, we only carry it in certain colors. It's a long story as to why we don't have all the colors for this particular key, and we may be able to get them in the future but at this point these are the only ones we have so please take that into consideration when creating your set;
- There are some keycaps we just don't make, don't have, and don't carry. The most often sought after is the R1 1.5 "Ctrl" or "Alt" size keys, and a 6.5 Spacebar - much like you would see on the bottom row of a Corsair or Razer keyboard. We don't have these keys, so while all the others will fit, these will not. You can see which keycap sizes we have on this page; keycap sizes
Now that you understand what can and can't do, we can help you get some custom keycaps for your oddball board layout. Please note that we can only offer limited 'pre-made' layouts for these non-standard layouts, so firing up an editor and creating your own using our special templates is going to be the best path to take. If you need help or want us to create a layout for you, we do offer design services for a fee - send us an email and we can get you a quote.
We will try to accommodate any non-standard layout that is requested (so long as it is actually possible to accommodate) so please email us if you have a keyboard layout or template that isn't on this page.

Assuming your ErdoDox has Cherry MX or similar switches, our keycaps will fit. However, we do not have specific keycap sets for it. It's pretty difficult for our keycap printers to accommodate ErgoDox keyboards, due to their unique number of differently sized keys, for example QTY 12 of R3 1x1.50 keys.
The printers that we use here are laid out for standard keyboard sets. Because of this, we don't offer a complete ErgoDox keycap set - in order to print QTY 12 of R3 1x1.50 keys we use the same amount of printer time as six full keyboards (which each normally have 2 of this key). These additional expenses are incorporated in the pricing for our loose custom keycaps, which are available here:
Text: single printed keycaps - text
Artwork single printed keycaps - artwork
For the rest of your keys that are 1x1 sized, it might make more sense price-wise to see how many of your keys you can order in a complete custom keycap set, but you'll want to consult your user manual and our keycap compatibility guide to make sure you get the right quantity of each kind: Keycap Compatibility Page
Corsair, Razer and Logitech:
Most Corsair, Razer and Logitech keyboards have an odd bottom row with a longer spacebar (usually 6.5) and R1 1.5 keys for Ctrl or Alt (or both) with R1 1x1s for the OS and Menu keys. We cannot and do not make or carry the longer spacebars nor the R1 1.5 keys for Ctrl or Alt. If you're ok with keeping your stock keycaps for these positions then all of the other keycaps we offer in our full sets (here) should fit without issue. You will want to select the option for compatibility (swap OS/Menu for 1x1 keys). Please consult our Keycap Compatibility Page for what set is right for your board, and if after all that you need help or just want to verify what set will fit, please just shoot us an email.
We will be adding more to this support article as we get more requests.
Hello! I just got a Tofu65 and I'm struggling to find keycaps I like, so I'm considering getting custom ones, but the layout's a little peculiar: the bottom row is three 1.25s, then a 6.25 spacebar, then three 1x1s and then the arrow keys. On top of this, I got the ISO version. I notice that the Keychron K2 85-key ISO layout seems to have basically all of the same keys. If I were to order a set using that template, would it fit my Tofu65?
Hello Jem Walker yes, as long as the keycaps are the same size then it will fit your board. If this is your layout (https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1473/3902/products/10_4ff7c82f-3213-49e2-b25a-a79452b9c996.jpg?v=1570106552) then our Keychron/GMMK ISO set will fit your board without issue. Thanks!
Hi David; that is indeed my layout. Thanks for the information!
Jem Walker no problem at all, thank you!
Can we get a layout for a 65% keyboard
Yes, you will be able to use our Keychron / GMMK sets to fulfill a 65% board easily.
Hey i want to make keycaps for the NK65 entry edition,
but I don't know if you guys support it's right shift.
Please help me
That keyboard looks like it's just a regular 1.75 key - I can't find an example with the keycaps installed so I can't be certain, but that's what it looks like.
The Keychron / GMMK set gives me everything I need except for one r1 1.25. What is my best way forward? Can I just lengthen one of the r1 1-unit keys to the right of the keyboard? Even better, could I chop up one of your templates into exactly what I need for my Mechwild Mercutio? I've checked that you offer all the keycap sizes I need. FWIW, "chopping" would be professional work.
Hello @Shay Hill,
You can just request in the comments that you want one of those keys to be a R1 1.25 instead, just let us know in the comments. If we have issues we'll email you about it. Thanks.
I want to get an image onto my keychron q6 but that layout is not listed as one of my options. Is there a way i could still do it?
Is there any chance you will offer custom key sets for ortholinear (matrix) keyboards, like the 40% Planck EZ ( https://www.zsa.io/planck/ ) or this 60% one https://ymdkey.com/collections/75-keys-ortholinear in the future?
I know I can make do with one of the existing layouts but it bugs me that all those non-1x1 and R4 (F) keys literally go to waste.
You can request that we don't include the keycaps you don't need, or email us with what you want and we can set you up with a custom order. Thank you.
