I think nothing beats the look of a two-tone color scheme, but I’m also interested in a black case and I think the dark grey keys would be more fitting. Is the dark grey set a mix of two dark(er) greys similar to how the Regular Printed Key Set is a mix of two colors, or is it one solid color?

Also just double checking – there aren’t any printed black key sets? I’m guessing the factory doesn’t have white dye sub capability?

Great Martin, glad you are joining the project!  The only two color key set is the pearl/pebble (regular colors) set.  The others are all one color.  The dark gray and Industrial SSK blue make a great match, though you’d need to order two key sets to get any combination of colors.  The key tops wear down after a few years of usage so I definitely recommend ordering more than one key set.

For some reason you cannot sublimate a lighter color onto a darker color for PBT; I am not sure the technical reason.

Excellent, thank you for the detailed response! I had no idea that technical limitation existed with dye subbing light colors onto darker PBT; I guess that explains why dye subbing has fallen out of fashion with modern black keyboards.

Typing this on an XT Model F so I’m very excited to join the 90’s layout-wise 🙂
