If it helps, the size of the inserts I design for my keys are 1.377" by 2".

Should be similar to these then - ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/10x-Clear-acrylic-keychain-2-x-1-3-8-photo-insert-for-luggage-ID-keyring-51x35mm-/360843329190?hash=item5403f03ea6 )

Figure they say the insert is 1 3/8" ( 1.375" ) x 2" -- not too bad for $0.70 a piece shipped from PA ( and they'll combine shipping if you order several sets.

OR these for $1.89 for 5 from china ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/5PCS-Transparent-Blank-Photo-Picture-Frame-Clear-Keychain-Key-Ring-Fob-5-1X3-2cm/310836080641?_trksid=p2045573.c100034.m2102&_trkparms=aid%3D555012%26algo%3DPW.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D32831%26meid%3Dd99d32eafe6f4e80a2d79a513f67e3d5%26pid%3D100034%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D8%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D360843329190 )

The PA ones say this on the insert: Photo insert dimension 1-1/8 x 1-3/4" (44x28mm)

That's still too small.

I wonder if the 1.75 x 2.35 ones would be better?

The one I posted above uses that size insert.

It would be nice to find a bulk rate on them, though.   :dunno

Great news, I took a flier on these, and they ARE the same size as OldTymeToys if you want to roll your own keychains to match the ones you might already have:

TWO Photo Frame Key Chains 1.75" x 2.25" - Keep a Picture of Loved One w/ Keys

The same seller also sells them in lots of 12.... not a bad deal if you need a lot.

a bit expensive with the shipping for a single but not bad for the 12 pack @ $7 shipped -- Got the smaller ones in the other day and they came out decent but as mentioned are smaller - the second set is a bit better at 1"x 1.75" inserts (smaller set is 1" x 1.5") -- Here's a pic of a few I made up using them : (Excuse the poor quality pic as my camera is pretty bad !)

You get TWO in the first link, not a single. But yeah,  the dozen is a great deal.

I think these look better than a square old box. They make me think arcade cabinet rather than just game.
