WASD V1 Custom Keyboards are available with engraved or etched legends. The font color choices in the Custom Keyboard Designer are for reference only and NOT representative of the actual appearance of the laser markings on the keycaps.

Laser Etched

Laser Engraved

A contrasting mark will be made on the keycap. Different colored keycaps will yield slightly different results. As a general rule, all colored keycaps will yield a dark grey mark while black keycaps will yeild a beige white. Laser etched keycaps are extremely durable as the color of the plastic itself changes color under the laser. The color change actaully penetrates below the surface of the keycap so that even if scratched, the mark will still be there. Laser etching has little to no affect on the physical "feel" of the keycaps.

Laser engraving yields a "cut-out" of the legend. Our laser engraving cuts a out line of your design onto each key resulting in a sleek and discreet look. Different colored keycaps will yield slightly different results. Laser engraving is extremely durable as the surface of the plastic is physically changed by the laser. With laser engraving, you can feel the channels cut out of the plastic by the laser. Visibility on engraved may be an issue for some users, especially in low light situations or when using lighter keycaps as engravings are not as apparent on those colors. We suggest using a minimum font size of 8pt.
