Typekit: Delivering Real Fonts as a Service For Your Website

This is an exciting time for web design. With growing usage of modern web browsers; the ability to use whatever font you like in your website is now possible. However there are copyright and licensing issues which limits your ability to do so. That’s where Typekit comes in. Typekit has worked with major foundries to develop a consistent web-only font linking license.

Typekit provides a platform that hosts both free and commercial fonts; and allows you to add a line of code to your pages and choose from hundreds of fonts. Simple, bulletproof, standards compliant, accessible, and totally legal.

Typekit offers a free plan that let you use 2 fonts on 1 website from their trial library with 5GB of monthly bandwidth. Their paid plan starts from $24.99/year which allows you to use 5 fonts from personal library on 1 website with 10GB of monthly bandwidth.

Typekit is produced by Small Batch Inc;Founded in 2008 by Jeffrey Veen, Bryan Mason, Greg Veen, and Ryan Carver. Visit Typekit: http://typekit.com/

    Yet another hosted service trying to make money of the limitations we face. Pfff. I am slowly but gradually becoming depressed with the way we regard the web.
