Computer Keycaps and Switches
Our in-house design and fabricating processes allow us to provide custom imprinted keycaps and switches in any quantity from prototype to long production runs.
We can imprint on the tops of the keycaps and the front of the keycaps in one or more colors.
We work closely with our ink supplier to match the ink to the substrate for a durable bond. In fact, in over ten years and literally hundreds of thousands of imprinted parts, we have never had a single part returned - a record we are very proud of.
Since there are so many styles of keycaps and switches available, it is impossible for us to stock blank
items for printing. Instead, we work on customer supplied parts.
Customers can supply their own black and white artwork for us to make the printing plates, or we can generate the artwork ourselves. Once the printing plates have been paid for the first time, there is never a charge to remake plates if they wear out; we remake them at our expense.
To determine the price per imprint for keycaps or switches, simply get a total of the parts to be printed with the same color imprint.
Example: 100 keyboards consisting of 10 keycaps per keyboard that need imprinting in the same color would be 1,000 total keycaps. The price per keycap or switch with one imprint would be 37 cents. This means that the total order would be $370.00, plus tooling if needed.
One color imprint on one surface (top or front).
Imprint on two surfaces (top and front) or two colors on one surface.
Imprint on one surface in three colors or printed on two surfaces in two colors and one color on another surface. This job type needs a special quote.
Tooling (one time charge):
$30.00/color (text and simple symbols) If you are supplying artwork, it should be black and white text or images in EPS or TIF format. JPG images will not be clear enough for tooling.
Black ink for use on most plastics is a standard no cost ink. Other colors are available at an additional cost. Please let us know what plastic your part is so that we may check for compatibility.
Minimum Order Value (excluding tooling):
Pricing below is based on a minimum of 30 imprinted pieces per legend in black ink. A $25.00/ink color setup charge will apply to all imprinted legends that have less than 30 pieces. For example: if you have 30 or more keycaps or switches with the wording STOP imprinted on them, the unit price would be 80¢ each. If you had less than 30 pieces, the cost would be 80¢ each plus a $25.00 setup charge.
