3 Smart Keyboard Stickers That Make Letters Clear & Legible To See

by Sebastian Kończak, updated at Mar 2023

Keyboard Stickers that help in visibilityLow legibility of the letters is actually a very common problem that makes working on computer pretty uncomfortable. It may start after long time when the symbols get worn-off that much that you can't read them or when the surface gets partially glossy. Greasy marks are perhaps the biggest nightmare as it's barely possible to prevent the keyboard from getting more damage once they start to show up.

Troubles with reading the letters on the keyboard are also experienced by users who recently purchased the new laptop. Many of them complain on too low contrast between the letters and the keyboard background color. When symbols and what's around them have similar shades, in some light conditions it's hard to read them. Ironically, it is observed mostly during the day.

Our customers very often reach us for an advise on how to resolve these issues without giving up on the current laptop. Luckily, within past 6 years we have found a way to save many laptops from being abandoned in the deepest drawers, not to mention how much money our customers saved when they didn't have to replace the whole notebook because of the wrong keyboard. Where to get keyboard stickers that bring your typing experience to the new level but also protect the keys? 

Check our customers’ 3 favourite solutions and pick yours: 

  1. Keyboard Stickers in contrasting, black & white style
  2. Keyboard stickers with transparent background & letters on the side
  3. Keyboard stickers with large letters

1. Keyboard Stickers in contrasting, black & white style.

Simple black (or any other simple styled) keyboard stickers are perfect to completely transform the layout and hide its original look. On the stickers we can design anything from the scratch - for example, make the letters bigger, add/reduce particular characters or apply different colors. It's also a good way to replace the language which we don't use but our laptop turned out to have one after we bought it.

3. Keyboard stickers with large letters

This is the solution we recommend if you are not only unhappy with the keyboard color but also struggle with too small letters. To have better visibility, you can simply apply stickers with large letters. One product site, there're unlimited color options available to choose but the best result you will get if you have yellow or white letters on black background. Need the background to be white? Pick black letters, like one of our customers has done recently:
