Keycap for keyboard switch

Keycaps are the removable, individual components of a keyboard that cover and label the switches. They are the parts you physically press when typing. Keycaps play a significant role in the overall feel, aesthetics, and customization options of a keyboard. Here are some key aspects of keycaps for keyboard switches:


Keycaps can be made from various materials, including ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate), POM (Polyoxymethylene), and PPS (Polyphenylene Sulfide). Each material has its characteristics in terms of durability, texture, and resistance to wear.


The profile refers to the shape and height of the keycaps. Common profiles include OEM, Cherry, SA, DSA, and more. Different profiles can affect the typing experience and aesthetics.

Print Methods:

Keycaps can have legends (the symbols or letters on the keycaps) applied using different methods. This includes double-shot molding, laser etching, dye-sublimation, and pad printing. Double-shot molding is often preferred for its durability.

Keycap Sets:

Keycaps are often sold in sets, allowing users to customize the entire keyboard or replace specific keys. Keycap sets may follow specific themes, colors, or profiles for a cohesive look.


Keycaps come in various sizes and shapes to fit different keyboards and layouts. It's crucial to ensure that the keycaps are compatible with the switch type and keyboard model.

Artisan Keycaps:

Artisan keycaps are custom-designed, often handcrafted keycaps that add a unique and artistic touch to a keyboard. These keycaps are prized for their individuality and creativity.

Keycap Profiles:

OEM: A standard profile often seen in most keyboards.

Cherry: Similar to OEM but with a lower height.

DSA: Uniform keycap height for a flat profile.

SA: High-profile keycaps with a sculpted shape.

Different keycap profiles determine the shape and height of the keys. Common profiles include:


Keycaps provide a way for users to personalize their keyboards. Many mechanical keyboard enthusiasts enjoy swapping keycap sets to achieve a desired look and feel.

Backlit Keycaps:

Some keycaps are designed to allow backlighting to shine through. This is common in gaming keyboards or keyboards with customizable RGB lighting.

Novelty Keycaps:

Novelty keycaps feature unique or themed designs. These can include gaming symbols, icons, or characters and are often used to replace specific keys for added flair.

When selecting keycaps, it's essential to consider the compatibility with your keyboard, switch type, and personal preferences in terms of aesthetics and typing experience. Many enthusiasts enjoy exploring the world of keycap customization to create a unique and personalized keyboard setup.
