Received mine today. Very happy with the end result, though as noted the fonts are bolder than the renders.
One minor nitpick that I didn't notice when making the order is that I really don't like the curly ' and " on the key, instead preferring the straight versions on a key. If anything, I'd have preferred that they curled the other direction.
One question with the specialties though. I received two each of the sky blue Control, Caps Lock, and Function keys. What was not included in that pack were the pictured 1U Backspace and 1U FN keys. Just trying to check, is this a shipping error? Or was a change made to that pack from the original render?

There aren't enough pictures on this thread yet, so while I haven't chosen which keyboard I'll be using these caps with, I do have this...

Ignore if you can the fact that I clearly broke the switch tester already though, I'll need some glue for the acrylic or something. Unfortunately I cracked it while putting the switches in place, but thought it was okay. But then the stress of attempting to put caps on in that area broke it all the way. (Sidenote, this tester probably would've been better with more standoffs. The size of it means that I can feel the acrylic flexing pretty much everywhere as I try to put keys on.)

Yes, I was also wondering if the curly quotes being upside down (at least from my point of view) was a production mistake. (And I also like the thinner renders more than the final outcome.)
Regarding the pairs of stepped sky blue Control, Caps Lock and Function keys: Have you looked on their underside? One of each is with a centered stem and the other one has an offset stem. I'm very happy about these (and surprised as I didn't expect them), but that way I could put a stepped Caps Lock key on a keyboard where a non-stepped Caps Lock key was on before.

Ah, didn't notice the different stems. Yeah, didn't expect that at all.
