Buyer’s Guide: Can this webfont be linked to Typekit?

Currently, you can only link webfonts from FontFont (also known as Web FontFonts) — webfonts that begin with “FF” in their name, such as FF Meta Web or FF Suhmo Web — to your Typekit account.

Hosting with Typekit

When you purchase a Web FontFont, you will be given a voucher code that links your Web FontFonts to your Typekit account. Send your Web FontFonts to Typekit by clicking on the link given to you when your purchase is complete. When you click on this link, you should be taken to a page that should look something like this:

At this point, you will be able to double-check to make sure you are linking the correct Web FontFonts to your Typekit account. You can then sign in to your Typekit account or create a new account.

If you don’t find a yellow box with a link to send your webfonts to Typekit when you’ve completed your purchase, you can still use webfonts. Remember, Typekit is completely optional and all webfonts on FontShop can be self-hosted!

Theresa’s Tips: Hosting Web FontFonts on Typekit

FontShop makes hosting Web FontFonts on Typekit easy.

When you purchase a license from FontShop for a Web FontFont you can self host the typeface, or you can take advantage of our partnership with Typekit. It’s just a simple click on the link we provide on your check out confirmation page. If you don’t have a Typekit account, then you can set up a plan that’s right for you. Please note that only Web FontFonts can be hosted on Typekit from FontShop.

They also ensure 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. In many of the files, you can also now choose between Oldstyle Figures and Proportional Lining Figures.

You may also notice we’ve updated the look of this blog with some new webfonts. The headers are now in FF Sero Web and the body text in FF Tisa Web.
