Buy Web FontFonts at FontShop.com, Host Them on Typekit

Web FontFonts are compatible with Typekit. Our partnership gives users an additional way to serve Web FontsFonts to their sites. The Typekit service delivers Web FontFonts from a global network of servers to every browser that supports @font-face, extending compatibility to all browsers.

How does it work?

Web FontFonts licensed on FontShop.com can be sent to a free Typekit account. After purchasing your fonts you’ll find a link on your checkout confirmation page. Simply click it to send your license and fonts to Typekit, then follow their instructions to add a single line of code to your site and your fonts will be served immediately. The Typekit option works under their Free Trial account and hosting your fonts this way is purely optional. Certain limitations apply to the Free Trial account, see Typekit Plans for details.

    Kosmik fails on a Sarari browser. Is this what we can expect, or can you sort this out please?

    @sara: FF Kosmik is not yet available as a Web FontFont. Please tell us a bit more about how you are using the fonts.

    Hi Please can you just clarify that the fonts work with paid Typekit plans, not just the free account.

    Not sure if your comment: “The Typekit option works under their Free Trial account and hosting your fonts this way is purely optional. Certain limitations apply to the Free Trial account, see Typekit Plans for details.” means that it ONLY works with the free account, or just that you don’t need to have a paid account.

    Thanks

    Hi – Just tried to purchase Century Gothic, but it is unclear if this is a web font or not. Please can you advise if it is available as web font.

    Thanks

    @Samuel: Unfortunately we do not have Century Gothic as a web font because we only sell the desktop license. You may be able to find the web version from MonotypeFonts.com instead.

    If I buy a licence for News Gothic Condensed is there any way I can use it from my Typekit account to host this font on my website? Is there a web license for this font?

    Unfortunately we only sell the desktop license for News Gothic Condensed on FontShop.com and it is not available at Typekit.

    I buy the Quadraat Web package and can’t use this font on fontsquirrel.com font-face generator: you blacklisted this font. Really, really annoying.

    Now you have an angry customer who can’t automatize this tedious job of using font-face because of your ridiculous politics.

    Last purchase from fontshop.com.

    As stated in FontFont’s EULA, “You may not modify, adapt, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble,” or alter the font software without approval from FontFont.

    Fortunately, when you license a Web FontFont you are given the EOT/WOFF formats that you can use with the @font-face rule.

    If you need help using the EOT/WOFF files then please contact us at info@fontshop.com with your issue.

    “Fortunately, when you license a Web FontFont you are given the EOT/WOFF formats that you can use with the @font-face rule.”

    Yes, and doing all this process manually when fontsquirrel.com have a really great (and free) tool online.

    Really sad.

    Using @font-face will put your file easily on the web. checking the page sourcecode will give access to your files. How do we do if we want to use font with @font-face without giving those away ?

    @Julien

    When you license a webfont, you are only given the EOT/WOFF files that you can use with CSS @font-face rule. EOT/WOFF files can not be used in desktop applications and can only be viewed by browsers. It is the end user’s responsibility to make sure that the site that uses the EOT/WOFF files are licensed correctly.

    Seriously, you sell webfonts without SVG making it useless on Android (even though I think Android is a piece of crap), then I transfer my bought licenses to Typekit and I even have to get a paid plan to get rid of the fracking Typekit badge?

    Hahaha!

    While WOFF and EOT are not compatible with the default browser on Androids, WOFF format webfonts are compatible with the current version of Chrome and Firefox for Androids. Although we are partnered with Typekit, we cannot offer further support for them — if you have any additional Typekit questions, please contact Typekit directly at support@typekit.com.
