“Heavily inspired by the AEKII, the main idea was to create an icon based keyset with a neo-retro look, inspired by old Apple keyboards. I wanted to have something with a minimalistic but intuitive look, which explains the icons mods!”

DSA Just Beige : MechanicalKeyboards
Among some tidbits from the comments here:
• DSA Beige’s keycaps may look white-ish, but they’re really more beige-ish, which you can definitely see when a photo of Just Beige is right next to DSA Honeywell:
• The font on the keycaps is Roboto.

“Black Datadesk Alps Caps I still have one or two Alps keycap sets from Datadesk Trackboards left. They are barely used (pulled from some faulty datadesk boards that look to have had minimal use). High quality pad-printing with no visible wear. A few examples: I’ve put alphas on an ALPS64 build and I used two sets (for the extra arrows) on a 40% ortho layout. Come with wires and hook stabilizers. $10 per set shipped.”

Kinesis Advantage with DSA keycaps -
On replacing a Kinesis’s keycaps with DSA keycaps:
“Most keyboards - including the Kinesis Advantage - use what is called a DCS profile, where the keys in each row have different heights and angles. (That does not include laptop keyboards, or island-style keyboards such as the ones that Apple sells. Those are in their own categories.) DCS family: medium profile, cylindrical top, sculptured. <br> Image from Signature Plastics.
DCS family: medium profile, cylindrical top, sculptured.
Image from Signature Plastics.

“Input Nirvana on Geekhack has a post with a list of all necessary keycap sizes and profiles to reproduce the arrangement on a stock Kinesis. It is possible to order these individually from Signature Plastics; but their inventory for à la carte orders varies depending on what they have left over from production of large batches. When I checked, SP did not have any row 5 PBT keycaps available. I got the impression that building a custom DCS set would be somewhat difficult.”

Keyboard profile - Deskthority wiki
“Most keyboards have four row profiles, for the alphanumeric rows, with the function key and space bar rows borrowing their profiles from the adjacent rows. The space bar is often higher and convex.

“The ISO/IEC 9995-1 standard labels rows alphabetically starting with the space bar row as row A, and the bottom alphabetic row as row B, etc. The standard also mandates that rows above the alphanumeric section start with K and that rows below the space bar be labelled from Z backwards.

“Several manufacturers do use ISO numbering, or just mostly ISO numbering. Other manufacturers label rows in other ways.”

DSA vs. SA profile: what is more confortable? (Matt3o’s DSA/SA Retro) • deskthority
“Personally I love spherical keycaps, but I’m not huge on either SA or DSA. The problem is that there’s insufficient height step from the back of one keycap to the front of the next, and as a result you have to move your hand more than necessary to reach top row and number row keys. I much prefer the profiled spherical Alps keycaps from a typewriter shown in the comparative picture below.”

[photos] My WASD custom keycaps, made for Mac / Vim / Pok3r : MechanicalKeyboards
"I did the noob mistake to post this as image and not with a full text post. So, here is how I did this custom set:

"1. Once I got my Pok3er I followed this amazing guide on how to customize it. I ended up creating my own version, which is slightly different.

"2. I realized Mac keys are hard to find and having it custom printed would be my best bet. So I found WASD Custom keycaps were a viable option.

"3. I created a preview using keyboard layout editor. I liked it and decided to order.

"4. Downloaded their Inkscape template, Inkscape itself and created the custom layout by adding the arrows to H,J,K,L keys, creating Pn key and moving others arround. You can download the final layout here (right click and save the file).

5. Before ordering you need input the colors correclty. I used Custom Text color #bbbbbb, black modifiers and the darkest gray available for alphanumeric."

HOW TO: Easily tell if a keycap set will fit your Cherry MX mechanical keyboard – – Mechanical Keyboard Reviews, News, Buyer's Guide, and more
"One of the most common questions on GeekHack and /r/mechanicalkeyboards is, “Will this keycap set fit my keyboard?” I know I asked this question countless times when I got into mechanical keyboards, and I still remember how daunting it was. If just one out of 100+ keycaps is wrong, your money’s been wasted. Do you want a keyboard that’s missing even one keycap? I know I don’t.

"Fortunately, there’s an easy trick, and I’m going to teach it to you in this post. Once you’ve learned and practiced the trick, it’ll become second nature to tell if a keycap set fits your board. Soon you’ll be answering the question for other people instead of asking it yourself."
