Keyboard stickers?

Hi all - most of you on here know me and Im more for finding solutions than complaining about niggly issues, however my keyboard is starting to go again - this is the second keyboard in the 9 months I have had the laptop (pics below).

Trouble is, I cannot afford to be without my laptop for 5 weeks again when RMAd (the time it took last time) and basically it seems a long time to wait to replace a keyboard but I understand there are queues etc and the really really annoying thing is, the laptop works perfectly and is a great piece of kit.

Sadly, though I find this appalling quality for a £1700 laptop that the 'paint'/transfer is coming off for the second time after just this short period of time.

I want to weigh up my options and wondered if anyone on here has used keyboard stickers to replace lettering on the keyboard - if so, do they peel after a while - are they tacky? - how would you rate them and what ones have you got? Would the heat of the laptop effect the stickiness etc?


PLEASE NOTE: even though I am really annoyed at this, I am not looking at this thread going into a slate PCS or the laptop type thread, I'm looking for constructive options please. Thank you.

I bought some stickers for a previous laptop, as it had a spanish keyboard so function buttons etc were labeled wrongly once it had been changed to english in settings, they seemed to work ok, and aren't overly expensive,, here's some on Amazon

Had same problem with a keyboard on my desktop try keep your nails short so you can’t scrape the tops of them.

stickers is also a good suggestion
