ZX81 Keycap Stickers?

Post by BeaglzNZ »

I am in the process of building up some external ZX81 keyboards using MX switches and on the hunt for ZX81 keycap stickers.

Have found a website with stickers but they are OOS.

Does anyone have a suitable file with the stickers so I could get a local vinyl graphics printer to use? Been searching google and the forum threads and come up empty so far.

While the keycaps from WASD are really nice they are also really expensive, so looking at more budget friendly options.

Thanks.

New members need some posts before they can PM.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.

It’s easier if you send them your email address via a PM to them. Although they can’t send PMs, I think they can receive them.

custom keycaps might be better than stickers...
