Subsetter was designed with the needs of both web designers and developers in mind. Its purpose is simple — reduce the file size of your Web FontFonts to make your websites faster, optimize bandwidth usage, and reduce high-traffic costs. Subsetter allows you to strip out extraneous glyphs and data that you may not need, like unused language characters, punctuation marks, and kerning information. It will create a new, lighter webfont file tailored to your website.
On July 20, FontFont will be releasing an upgraded Web FontFont collection. To further optimize your Subsetter experience, we encourage you to re-download your Web FontFonts after July 20 to get the improved versions. This will ensure that you end up with a smaller file size, additional optimization for Microsoft’s rendering API DirectWrite, and improved vertical metrics for consistent baseline positions in all browsers. Upgraded Web FontFont files will be available at no additional cost.
You can reduce your Web FontFont file sizes in a matter of moments with Subsetter’s easy, three-step process.
- Upload a Web FontFont.
- Strip out glyphs and data that may not be needed for a particular site, like unused language characters, punctuation marks, and kerning.
