Hi! Does anyone have any ideas for adding labels on the silicone elastomer button keypad (product 1611) ? Thanks!

I believe nothing really sticks to that squishy keytop just like the silicone sheathing on neopixels. You might want to experiment with putting cut out labels printed on transparency or paper or stiffer cardstock pieces in the voids under the press area. The graphic may be a little obscured by the transluscent material but print in a high contrast like yellow text on black background. It might be cool if lit up with LED underneath. Using paint or marker would not work too well on a medium that is stretched a lot.
