Process Type Foundry partners with Typekit

Process Type Foundry logoThe wait is over. Process Type Foundry is now offering seven of their families for use as web fonts, including Bryant 2, Bryant Compressed, Bryant Condensed, Klavika, Klavika Condensed, Locator, and Seravek. You may have already spotted a few of them in the Lost World’s Fairs project; now, you can use these same sleek, sturdy, and thoroughly useful fonts in your own projects, too.

A sampling of the new web fonts available from Process Type Foundry.

Similar to our partnership with FontShop, if you buy any of these fonts from Process Type Foundry you can host them on Typekit with any of our plans (including our free Trial Plan). If you’re already a Typekit user, that means absolutely no extra cost to you.

It’s really easy to get started. Just follow a link to Typekit once you’ve completed your purchase at the Process Type Foundry website. Your new fonts will be instantly transferred to your Typekit 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 Process Type Foundry and the browsers evolve their web font support.

We’re so excited that Process Type Foundry fonts are now available for use on the web. And we’re thrilled that the fine folks at Process Type Foundry have chosen to partner with Typekit in order to “make the task of implementing @font-face much easier.”

  1. FINALLY!! I’ve been waiting for this since the beginning of TypeKit. Thanks!

  2. Dan Butcher says:

    Are Process Type Foundry fonts available to all Typekit users, or just those who purchase a Process font? Fontshop faces are available both ways, but I can’t find Process fonts when I login to my Typekit account.

  3. Kyle Fox says:

    It looks like the fonts might not actually be in the Typekit library — I can’t find them anywhere.

  4. They are definitely worth buying for desktop use or even just for web use. I have several of theirs and they look fantastic in all kinds of treatments.

  5. Addison Hall says:

    Awe, man — I was really hoping Maple would be included. Maybe soon…

    I’m getting this image http://processtypefoundry.com/images/css/oops.png, using Firefox 3.6.10 and Chrome.
    Any ideas?

  7. George Esses says:

    that’s great news!. It’s a good start for better thing to come. Woof!

  8. John says:

    It’s crazy sometimes how Typekit is so unresponsive to their customers’ problems. Reflects really badly on them and annoys us too.

  9. Theo says:

    Nice move, i`m very satisfied with you guys, thanks !

    manuel > That was a CSS error on our part – a misuse of the Typekit font loading classes. Should be fixed now. Oops indeed!

    And if you’re interested in using our fonts with Typekit, head on over to our site first and find the webfont or desktop/webfont you’re interested in. Once your purchase is complete, you’ll receive a link to send your fonts to Typekit and, like magic, they’ll show up in your Typekit account. Hope that helps…

    big deal Process Type. It would be much better to have these selected typefaces available under one of the subscription plans rather than have to buy the font, then purchase an additional @font-face license.

    1. Max says:

      I got it that way. Really a pity it isn’t included in the plans…

    2. Marc says:

      Well Micheal, not here to defend typekit or anybody but you have to realise that designing typefaces actually takes a huge amount of time.

      You should be happy that there are plans that allow you to use hundreds of fonts for a really low price, you have to realise that this is already a luxury. Look at the prices for individual weights of fonts on foundries and you’see how lucky you are that typekit makes such offers.

      People have been spoiled because in all the software they license (microsoft, adobe…), the fonts SEEMED to be free, but actually these company spend a lot of money to make typefaces available for their customers, and this allows the type designers to live.

  12. Anon says:

    I thought the Typekit model was that we paid a single licence fee and a wide range (for the higher plans) of high-quality fonts were available in our kits.

    Instead I find that many of the fonts are unusable in Windows browsers, and now the new well-designed fonts cost extra. Hmm.

  13. Torsten says:

    is there any way to preview the process-fonts for the different browsers/systems before buying?

  14. Nicole Dotin says:

    To answer some questions… When you purchase Process Type Foundry webfonts, you’re getting more than just their use in Typekit – you get WOFFs and EOTs that you can host and serve yourself. This is a deviation from how you may be used to using Typekit, but it offers designers implementation flexibility both in the short- and long-term.

    To preview the fonts, we have live specimens for each weight on our website. For example, here’s Klavika Light and its Italic…
