Dolch is the first custom set to be produced on the recently re-commissioned DSS tooling. This tooling was built in the early 80's to offer a sculptured look to the popular DSA profile. It is a medium height profile, shorter than SA, with a textured spherical touch surface and smooth sided like DSA. The DSS family had a relatively short life as it lost it's commercial appeal to the DCS family which had a more popular cylindrical touch surface. Old keyboards populated with the DSS family would be a rare and valuable find today.

Colors are the same as DSA Dolch and are ABS: GE (light gray); GX (dark gray); RA (red).

Future DSS sets will only be run in ABS material. PBT blanks or sublimated keys will not be an option for this family.

Individual Keys - They can only be ordered if they are part of the existing pack. Orders will be refunded for keys purchased that are not already included as part of a pack. You can purchase individual keys by selecting the individual key option from the drop down menu and the putting the description of the key you want to purchase in the order comments section at checkout (this is a box below the shipping address form).

Alternate Keys - Identify the key size, the row, and the description of the key you would like to purchase. Only keys included in this image can be ordered as Alternate Keys.

What is the DSS Profile? DSS offers the textured, spherical touch surface of DSA in a medium-height profile that's shorter than tall SA keycaps. A classic style from the early 80s, DSS keycaps had a relatively short life as they lost commercial appeal to the DCS family. We've re-re-commissioned are DSS tooling to bring them back!

Sublimated Sets are printed on-demand and won't ship "same day" regardless of shipping method chosen.

Shipping costs at checkout do not include VAT or Duty. This will be due prior to package delivery.

Great except for kitting

I really love DSS. It's so comfortable and good-looking. And I love the classic look of the dolch colorway. The only thing I don't love about it is the fact that it lacks support for two of the most popular layouts: 65% and 75%. You can get a 1.75u right shift, but it's the wrong row profile, and you can't get some of the navigation keys (pg up, pg down, end) in the right profile either. But I still love it.

DSS Dolch and Tecla

DSS is my favourite low/ medium profile keycaps.

The Dolch Keycaps’ colours and texture give a discreet, retro look and feel that is a pleasure to type on.

I have not yet had the opportunity to try the Tecla keycaps

Don't take our word for it


This is hands down the best set of keycaps I've purchased after getting two more spherical PBT keysets before it from sketchy sellers on Amazon and eBay. The quality is excellent, there is no sign of wear on the engraving after several weeks, etc.

I have purchased both the alpha and novelties + a few single keycaps and I'm super pleased with the design. If you are considering to get this, I highly recommend that you go ahead with the purchase!


I got this set for my first TKL keyboard and it looks great, even better in person than I anticipated.

I've ordered many keycaps from this site, and customer service has been awesome whenever I have contacted them with questions about available options.
