Monotype fonts not coming to Typekit as announced
August 30, 2013
Last September, we announced an agreement with Monotype to offer a selection of their fonts as an add-on subscription to your Typekit plan. Then in February of this year, we said it would be delayed, and we estimated that it would be available this summer.
Today we’re sorry to announce that unfortunately we won’t be able to offer Monotype fonts via Typekit in the foreseeable future.
When we made the announcement, we believed that we would be able to offer Monotype fonts via a subscription add-on that would be easy for our customers to understand and use.
But as we began working on implementation, we discovered that there were incompatibilities between our account management system and the licensing requirements of the Monotype fonts.
We’ve made our best effort at resolving these incompatibilities, but ultimately we couldn’t find a solution that worked for us and for Monotype.
We realize that some customers made plans around the expectation that Monotype fonts would be available via Typekit. We’re sorry for the inconvenience this caused you.
If you’re stuck without a solution for your project, or if you’d like to share your feedback or concerns, we’d be happy to hear from you. Please email our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll continue to work with the industry’s leading foundries to bring the world’s best selection of premium web fonts to our subscribers. Please stay tuned to this blog for updates, or follow @typekit on Twitter.
