Who thinks black on black is a good idea?

Just bought the Mako set, which is the same or similar to most sets sold my iFixit. Raise of hands, who thought black writing on a black foam background was a good idea? Literally can’t read any of the bits.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The foam is laser embossed, which does make it a bit harder to read.


Yeah, the dark black on matte black is impossible for me. Perhaps in my younger days I could see it, but don't see the point of black on black. Contrast and clarity when you have a 64 bits seems important. Not sure I can keep my Mako kit if I can't see which bit is which.
