Buy fonts at FontShop, host them on Typekit
February 23, 2010
It’s hard to believe that it has only been three months since we launched Typekit — so much has happened in the webfont world in such a short time. We’ve been inspired recently by beautiful redesigns, increasingly sophisticated browser support, and many more foundries choosing to embrace @font-face.
In particular, our friends at FontShop have been moving quickly to bring their amazing collection to the web. As of today, they’re selling web licenses to hundreds of fonts from their FontFont library in WOFF and EOT format. And, we’re excited to announce that if you buy any of these fonts from FontShop, you can use it with your Typekit account. Absolutely free.
This means that the fonts you buy from FontShop can now be used on the web with all the browser compatibility, standards compliance, and rock-solid hosting you’ve come to expect from Typekit. Plus, you’ll still have our libraries of high quality fonts as part of your subscription — and we’ll keep growing that library, offering new fonts from more and more foundries.
Our integration with FontShop couldn’t be easier to use. Simply follow a link to Typekit once you’ve completed the checkout process. Your new fonts will be instantly transferred to your account, and linked through the simple line of code you’ve already added to your site. They’ll automatically work in every browser that supports @font-face, including those that don’t support WOFF or EOT, like Safari, Chrome, and earlier versions of Firefox. And we’ll seamlessly upgrade them in the future as browsers evolve their webfont support.
We’re humbled that so many of you have chosen Typekit to help you bring real fonts to your web sites. And we’re happy that we can offer you even more flexibility and choice through our partnership with FontShop.
