[On-Going] Show & Tell: Fav Artisans Flexin'

search
Happy Friday guys!
Recently many peeps in our office have been all very "emotionally invested" in the artisans we've been getting.
Artisans could range anywhere from $20 to even hundreds,
For this month's show & tell, give us a glance of your favorite artisan(s), or let us know what artisans you'd like to see on our site.
Looking forward!

It was from clackeys. Not sure when (or if) they're going to do another run. Edit: changed link to point to the page for that keycap.
(Edited)
Started casually collecting artisans for my themed keebs about a year and a half ago. What artisan could be my favorite? Those Jade ones, maybe? 🙈

Or those Rainbow ones? 🙈

Srry for all the questions im a mechcap noob but, would SA format keycaps work on a ducky keyboard because I really like the https://primecaps.ca/collections/in-stock keycaps but they only do the designs in SA format. It would be quite expensive for me as a student to just buy them to see if the key would fit nicely without much height or angle diffence. Thanks Noble.
NobleOMD1
No worries, everyone is a noob in something :) It all depends on your perception; as a Escape artisan it would stand out in a good way, without to much trouble, but as a replacement for any of your F-row caps (F1 to F12), the difference in height would be clearly noticeable, when placing a SA artisan there imho. Maybe you can ask PrimeCaps their take on this and maybe they even can provide you with some helpful pics, as they are cool people that like their first time buyers to turn into long term fans :) Good luck with your study!

Where did you guys get all these keycaps? I'm looking to deck out my keyboard with cool custom caps but I'm having a bit of difficulty finding them
Jobo-on-dodo
Here and other various sites as well as indie sellers over a fair bit of time.
hotkeysproject.com And Primecaps.ca
Are both good sites that periodically have cool stuff in stock. Watch the talk section here as well as the marketplace over on geekhack for smaller runs on stuff.

Thanks for reminding me! Just picked up a Yellow Serika with gray stripes space bar!
My small and humble collection.

Friday sale and all sales, minus fulfillment, are RNG..
Yes, he will do custom keys at a premium price... But unless you have a desire to burn through your wallet, most people don't/won't pay 500+ for a single key. It's art. That is why the price goes crazy.
If you want the research, which is partly why I gave the name Keyforge in the original message, you can go to geekhack dot com. It is now owned or will be owned by massdrop anyways. It is a site dedicated to keyboards and keycap artisan makers. All the big names are there. They often have their stuff announced there before anywhere else. Unless it is a slack or discord sale only. Many/most of the artists also have their own instagram, but you can find those on their main thread on geekhack. Seriously. That is really all the research you need to know.
But Yeah.... I laid the groundwork for you in my original message, only for you to be snobbish about it. Not appreciated. But I am happy you took the information and found what you were looking for. Sometimes simply asking a direct question will get you better results instead of being cheeky. Take care and I can tell you only one last thing, you better be ready to burn a hole in your pocket.. Keyforge, Suited Up Keys, Nightcaps, Alpha Keys, GalaxKey, Booper, Prime Caps, Tinymakesthings and Gadzkun all make amazing keys and are super friendly. Just don't go asking for favors unless you have extra money to throw their way. =) Get in on the Nightcaps. Fugus, shellthulus, piccolo and menlos are elusive AF.

Alright thank you. I promise I wasn't intending to come off as snobbish. Haha

Grow up.
You guys are awesome. I'm not sure if you ever saw the Starcraft Keycaps that Clackeys offered, but I would be willing to play whatever you want to charge for some if any of the awesome artists here could make me something like that.! :P
Hammer SA Skull was my favorite. Unfortunately missed the drop. Would like to see it drop again.
Good to see you make awesome youtube videos and like artisans!
Some blank SA profile caps I made for my RAMA M10a, working on some sculps which should be showcased soon. Esquimo KeyCaps. Blanks are beginner level in terms of Artisan but we all have to start somewhere. ;)
