Purchasing Legend Tooling

For a fee, SP will allow customers to purchase legend tooling. This consists of a machined brass plate which is produced in-house based on art provided by you. Once you purchase this tooling, keys can be molded using the tooling. However, as you may have guessed, the art provided by you is subject to a large number of constraints

Designing Legends

  • vector format (adobe illustrator preferred, will cover production in inkscape in this document)
  • units typically SI
  • custom legends designed for use with geekhack custom keysets should exactly specify an entire keytop
  • lines vs shapes
  • cutter sizes
  • keep out areas
  • minimum distance between cut points
  • intersections between lines
