Buyer’s Guide: Promotional Discounts with No Promo Code

If you subscribe to the FontShop newsletter, you already know that each edition highlights promotional discounts offered by our foundries to bring you the best deal on a new font or help you complete your collection.

Here’s part of the promotions section from our latest newsletter:



Did you know that you do not need a promo code to receive your discount? The price listed on the website is in fact the promo price. To make things even easier for our customers when it comes time to make a purchase, discounted products at FontShop now display the regular price as well as the discounted price.

Check out HWT Artz as it appears on its family page:


Now, not only will you know for certain that the font you select is the advertised discounted font, but you’ll also be sure you’re getting a great deal!


Want to stay up-to-date on all the promotional specials happening at FontShop? Make sure to sign up for our bi-weekly newsletter where we regale our subscribers with new and free fonts, typographic tips and trends, and important FontShop developments.

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

Update April 2016: Recent changes to the FontShop website have temporarily made this automated “Bring Your Own License to Typekit”unavailable. To use your Web FontFonts on Typekit, visit your order history and click the green button to request a Typekit web voucher.


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!
