February Shapeways Artisan Roundup

As you’ve probably noticed from the keycaps available at Keypress Graphics, I’m a big fan of Shapeways’ 3D-printed artisan keycaps. They look awesome when painted, and there’s a huge number to choose from.
So with that in mind here’s a list of recent additions to Shapeways’ selection of purchasable artisan keycaps, and a few older designs some of you may not be aware of.


By far the most prolific & accomplished Shapeways artisan keycap guru is Tasker, who regularly releases new keycaps and I’m told also creates custom designs if you have a specific idea in mind.


I’m not sure if its meant to resemble Smaug from The Hobbit, something out of a D&D monster manual or a beast you’d see in a Boris Vallejo painting, but I definitely plan to paint one of these in the next few months.


Gintama Elizabeth

This quirky little character originates from the Japanese manga Gintama, and is a sidekick of the character Katsura.




Colby_powers27 has created a very sleek & stylized design with a Thanksgiving theme.



An elegantly simple keycap from thebigman with an anime weapon look.


Majora Moon

Some of you may remember this character from the Nintendo 64 game Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Designed by enfy1337.


N64 Logo

Another enfy1337 keycap, this one is the Nintendo 64 logo.


Hellboy Head

Spodave has designed this very detailed keycap of the character from the movie & comic book of the same name.


Ice Cream

A simple & playful keycap designed by illuminus.


Panic Button

Just what every Escape key needs, designed by IntellectualMoron.


Fallout Brotherhood T-45d

A very detailed keycap by GAMING_FACE, designed to model a power armor helmet from Fallout 4.



Itsa Mario! Itsa also a very nicely sculpted design from kwadhera, who has several other Mario-themed artisans for sale in his store.


Backlit Escape

Ravzncroft has huge range of designs and this is one of his bolder efforts. Printed in metal it would really suit a backlit keyboard as its name suggests.



For those of us who’ve owned vintage cameras igke’s keycap may bring back some memories. It looks to be modeled on a Polaroid Land Camera model 250 or 330.



That concludes Keypress Graphics’ first ever Shapeways artisan roundup.

New designers & keycaps are arriving on the scene regularly so more posts highlighting fresh designs will follow in the coming months. Thanks for reading!
