    replacment Keyboard "key" stickers

    Hello all,

    one of my laptops keyboards is getting a bit "worn" the the lettering on some of the keys is really faded and pretty much gone.

    Is there a place I can get replacment stickers or keykaps incidentally this is on an IBM thinkpad.

    I've found a few places on the net, but I'd appriciate a recommendation of a known place thats good quality

    thanks.

    not bad, I was looking for something more along the lines of just the letters, not the background with the letters on.

    If you don't mind the price you can always replace the keyboard completely. I used this company once and they were great. http://www.laptopbits.co.uk/Database..._Keyboards.htm

    That would also mean your laptop would feel like new until you get a few bits of food in it

    Had the same problem on an old thinkpad (T22). I just replaced the whole keyboard in the end, dont recall it costing all that much either.
    What we share with everyone is glum, and dark...

    Have you looked on eBay? You may find a replacement keyboard there.
