Hello, Can you produce a non-standard size key (e.g., for a calculator, GPS, etc.)?

Ditto for an adhesive key cover?

Thank you for your assistance.

Hi Jon,

We do have the capability to produce smaller keys. This is very expensive and usually not worth it unless you are interested in purchasing a very large quantity. We can make custom labels for your keyboard, same thing for those the more you purchase the better the deal. If you let me know the specifics of what you are looking for I may be able to be of more help. Thanks for your interest.
