Retro PC Keycap

Hi all,
Its Christos from the Planfab team again.
We just finished one more Keycap for Cherry MX switches.
This time we decided to design something for the Retro lovers. Based on photos of old IBM computers we made a Retro PC keycap.
We painted our prototype according to the original beige color of old computers and added a touch of orange in order to fit better on a carbon set. However, we need a little help to decide which color schemes we should produce.
Please help us out to decide which color schemes we should consider.
This is a two-part set, but we also plan on selling the screen on its own.
You can find out more keycaps ιn our shop!
Feedback and recommendations are welcome.
Cheers
Christos

well it should definately say "~/#" or "~/$" instead of "C:\" (windows...gross and shouldn't it be "C:\>"?) on the computer but regardless I will buy this is if given the opportunity.

Hey, this aint bad at all.
Usually MOST artisan key-caps are not my choice in life but this, could well prompt me to hand out some moolah.
Would really like it when this goes Live soon, here on MD Central.

Thanks! We would really love to have a drop too, but we haven't gotten an answer by massdrop about it!! However, we just produced the first batch! You can find it in our shop.

Yeah MassDrop moves about as fast as a Norwegian Glacier.
Hence don't expect anything from them till around Xmas this year or the next. Mainly because they will try and find out if it's feasible or doable within their current time frame.
Lots of other key-cap artisans are already inline for production with them hence you will have to get far back in line and wait.
Although YOUR design is my favorite and well worth the money.

We decided to produce some pieces with purple keys instead of orange. It will fit nicely on GMK Laser scheme keyboard. You can find it in our shop.

That is great. Perhaps an option should be / in addition to c:\ for us *NIX people (unix, linux, etc)

Maybe in the future, at the moment we only produce it with C:/ and in 3 different accent colors.

Good stuff! Love the design. Maybe paint 'em all the just like that, but the two orange keycaps to order if it isn't too much of a pain? I'd love the same paint job with the two orange caps in a nice green or blue if I had a choice.

This is a good idea, but we are not ready yet for something like that. However, we are considering a custom paint service for the future... At the moment we are making this one with orange/purple/gray keycaps. You can find it in our shop.
