Use your Typekit account on unlimited websites

A screenshot of Typekit plans

We’ve been spending a lot of time listening to people talk about how they use Typekit. And there are a lot of ways to use fonts on the web. Independent designers, corporate creative directors, agencies, bloggers — just about anyone working on the web today is discovering great typography.

All this diversity requires a lot of flexibility. We’re focused on making Typekit as versatile as possible, so we’re removing some limitations on how you can use your account. Starting today, all Portfolio and Performance accounts can be used with unlimited websites. No matter how many domain names you own, you can use Typekit on all of them now. Use as many fonts as you like, across as many sites as you want.

We’re also dramatically increasing the size of each account. We used to measure accounts with somewhat abstract bandwidth limits; we’re now switching to straight pageviews: 500,000 per month for Portfolio accounts, and a full 1,000,000 per month at the Performance level. We’ll add up traffic across all your Typekit-enabled sites, and give you powerful tools for reporting on your usage.

Finally, we’re reducing the price of Performance accounts to just $99 per year. That’s a pretty big discount from our original price of $249. And if you’ve already purchased one of our Performance accounts, we’re extending your subscription by 18 months, free of charge. Enjoy!

We’re confident these changes will make it easier for you to use Typekit. And we’re looking forward to seeing even more beautiful typography on the web.

  1. Thanks Typekit!

    And especially for that 18mo. extension. I really appreciated it and love your service!

  2. Ray Brown says:

    I love you guys so much. This is amazing news.

  3. Laura Kalbag says:

    That’s too cool! Now I can try fonts out on all my local sites without constantly deleting and re-creating kits. You guys make using Typekit so worthwhile.

  4. Don Carroll says:

    Very nice, but what of sites that receive up to 10M views/month (or, for that matter, any number greater than 1M)?

  5. Gedy says:

    Wow. This is great. It’s like Christmas!

    Lower price, more page views and unlimited sites?! Awesome.

  6. Brian says:

    Wow indeed.

    This is certainly the change that will transform me from free user to paid🙂

  7. Jeff says:

    Also wondering about a plan that would cover more than 1m page views/month. That would be fairly easy to hit even spread across 5 decent sized sites. A true, top end, “unlimited” plan that gives you unlimited everything might make sense.

  8. I’m convinced TypeKit is one of the best services in a fast changing web-based world. Thank you for the changes and your desire to make the internet a better experience for everyone.

  10. trudesign says:

    Amazing. Definitely using next client’s deposit to pay for a portfolio account.

  11. Justin says:

    @Don @Jeff:

    On the pricing page, right below the graph:
    “Enterprise Customers: Got massive traffic? We’ve got enterprise pricing for you. We’d love to hear from you.”

    The link is a mailto enterprise@typekit.com

  12. Erik Reagan says:

    This news is fantastic! Thanks for improving your already great service🙂

  13. Raymond Brigleb says:

    Great news! So are you extending the length of prepaid Portfolio accounts as well, or just Performance accounts? Because the prices dropped on both, right?

    1. Jeffrey Veen says:

      We actually kept the Portfolio account at the same price as before: $49/year. We did increase it’s usage limit by nearly double, though.

  14. Andy Stone says:

    This is some great news guys. I am so happy that everyone from corporations to freelancers can now take advantage of beautiful type on the web.

    Keep it up!

  15. If any one is interested, I just released new pixel @font-face web fonts. Check it out at: http://www.craigkroeger.com/fonts/

  16. Chris says:

    That is great news. Glad to see the service is successful and growing.

  17. Tiago Pedras says:

    Typekit will definitely benefit from these changes as much as we users will.
    Thank you all!

  18. Davey says:

    Kudos Typekit team – what awesome news!

  19. Eric says:

    How does this impact the contracts you have with foundries and font designers? Are their royalties also getting slashed?

  20. Phil Gons says:

    Great news. Thanks for these improvements!

  21. Martin says:

    As I understand the fonts will load on the first pageview and then will be cached by the browser. Does Typekit count only first pageview if fonts are loaded from cache, or all the pageviews are counted regardless?

  22. Willo says:

    This is GREAT news! Now that I’ve launched my first Typekit site – http://thesocial.org – I’m excited to integrate TK/custom fonts into others. I hadn’t yet signed up for Portfolio, but will be soon, *especially* now knowing my $49.99/yr will go even further, and I don’t have to decide which lucky few websites will get prettier.🙂

    Thanks so much!

  23. Excellent news!

    It’s great to see that you guys are really opening up what you can offer to the public, what a comfort to think that more and more people will be implementing beautiful type on the web!

    And the price drops are very generous, I should think we at Digital Results will be snapping up an account in no time!

    Cheers TypeKit!

  24. Tuhin Kumar says:

    Wow, this is good news. Looks like finally I will be hooking on to Typekit, to power my Art Directed Posts!🙂

  25. Gabe Diaz says:

    Wow this is great news, time to finally upgrade my account! Thank you TypeKit!

  26. Eric says:

    Again: How does this impact the contracts you have with foundries and font designers? Are their royalties also getting slashed?

    1. Bryan Mason says:

      Eric –

      We split revenue with the foundries just as we always have. Nothing about that has changed.

      In the past, each subscription type was limited in its use based on bandwidth (which was hard to understand) and number of websites you could authorize (an artificial constraint, really). We’ve switched to a much simpler method of tracking usage: page-views per account.

      Our goal is to compensate our foundry partners based on the scope of use for their font. And whether it is 1000 sites that get 1000 page-views a day or one site that gets 1 million page-views a day, we compensate the foundries the same way.

      We took some inspiration from the way that FontFont is licensing their web fonts; based on page-view limits per account/organizations, not number of URLs. This seems to be the easiest way to balance foundries’ need to manage scope with the customers’ need to manage/track use.

      This change is intended to make it easier for people to use fonts on the web – which is good for all of us.

  27. Andy says:

    This is amazing, I’ve been holding off from using it on many of my clients’ website because of the domain restriction. I’ll be subscribing for life now!

  28. Blake says:

    I am a recent graduate with a disability living in Mississippi. I am on a tight budget of $674 a month in the form of a Social Security check. Web design jobs in my state are scarce but I can’t move elsewhere. Customers know almost nothing about the Web or design and aren’t willing to pay more than a few hundred dollars. So I mostly volunteer for local charities (http://stopsma.org/). It’s been hard to get any good experience. Buying fonts was off the table for me.

    You have opened a door for me. Thanks.

  29. bintzia says:

    Hi! I have chosen a font from type kit and published it few hours ago but yet I can’t see that yet ! Plz tell me what shall I do?

  30. Ann098 says:

    Can I “publish” the fond to just one of my blog pages? One of my blogs is not active and the other two are non-english. I haven’t been able to “publish” the fond that I picked…
