We do not take steps to prevent this as the yellow occurs over the course of a number of years. We would recommend not keeping keycap sets directly in sunlight as that can speed up the yellowing process.
I do think Round 7 can serve to delight your visual sense and your fingertips at least for your life time and for your children's life time; and occasional (once per 7-10 years? if you are typing in some daylight) Blondierung treatment is both very economical and simple.
Just hope you will not to miss this best SA marathon Group buy in case you are patient enough - for my taste, the fonts are better than the default SP fonts.
One workaround is to use UV protective spray, but the layer will wear off after some time.
Of course, you can look into those PBT caps, but dyeing light color legends on darker caps is non-existent. EnjoyPBT has something closer: laser-engraved legends that let them have the legends etched deep enough to expose the original white color of the dyed PBT plastic. However, they do not do high-pro, such as those by MaxKey; and they do not engrave the whole set. Convince these parties and you can open your group buy, perhaps at a loss, perhaps a gain? Or perhaps the Chinese do not need you to bear the responsibility.
