Buyer’s Guide: Webfonter

Try webfonts from FontShop on any browser for free with WebFonter. With thousands of fonts to choose from, test-driving a webfont is as simple as 1, 2, 3.


Download and install the Chrome extension to preview a fresh look on even the most complex, javascript-heavy sites. Add the bookmarklet to your toolbar to preview webfonts in other browsers. Or use the launcher for just a quick try.

The best part is that WebFonter allows you to adjust, swap, and tweak font styles live in browser. Once you’ve picked the perfect fonts, you can buy a webfont license.

If you have additional questions you can always email FontShop’s Support Team for help.

Introducing FontShop WebFonter

webfonter_1Designers can now test out the thousands of webfonts from FontShop.com on existing websites, free of charge. FontShop International is pleased to introduce its WebFonter tool available at webfonter.FontShop.com.

Aiming to make the web design process as seamless as possible, WebFonter allows designers to “try before they buy,” by previewing actual typefaces in any existing site. The tool can be used as a Chrome extension, browser bookmarklet or by entering a URL directly at webfonter.fontshop.com.



Users can replace headline or body (paragraph) text, specific fonts, or, using custom CSS selectors, anything they want with FontShop webfonts.

WebFonter can be used during the design and development process –  a critical time for font choice. The target website does not need to be publicly accessible in order to test-drive webfonts. This hugely important feature marries well with the current web design trend towards designing directly in the browser, and makes WebFonter an extremely useful and powerful tool.

By pairing Webfonter with the FontShop Plugin, designers can now easily preview fonts in the concept stage of design from print to web.
