What’s a webfont, how to get it?
Webfonts are fonts displayed on a website, and read by a browser. Webfonts grant the access for anyone to see the same result without having the fonts installed on their computer
You shouldn’t have to pay twice for the same font, just because you want to use it both in print and on the web. When you buy one of our fonts, the webfont is always included, at no extra cost.
Which URL must be registered?
Each URL that’ll display the purchased fonts in ClearText. You can register an unlimited amount of website for the same purchase, as long as our licensing terms are respected.
If you’ll use the fonts on many subdomains, you should only register the main one.
You can register a website on behalf of your client even if they don't possess a licence, as long, as you never give them the webfonts and just store them on the website's server. If they have access to the font files or use them, they have to purchase a license.
Webfonts for a third party
You can register a website on behalf of your client even if they don't possess a licence, as long as you never give them the webfonts and just store them on the website's server.
If they have access to the font files or use them, they have to purchase their own license.
Inside a webfont package
We provide all relevant file formats for self-hosting.
We offer WebS, WebM and WebXL webfont files subsets. You will find them all in your package:
WebS is a reduced and lighter font file suitable for most common web usages, containing only the Latin alphabet (without alternates, ligatures and OpenType features).
WebM is the WebS subset + Cyrillic alphabet (without alternates, ligatures and OpenType features).
WebXL is the complete font file containing all characters and languages (Latin, Cyrillic, Arabic), including the many available only with OpenType functions and therefore not fully supported by all web browsers.
Available webfonts formats: .woff2, .woff, .eot, .ttf, .svg
The webfonts are manually optimized for ClearType rasterizers and above (DirectWrite), using TrueType hinting in vertical directions.
Unfortunately, we can't help you with coding your website and implementing webfonts, as every single OS and browser has its own way to deal with them.
But you will find useful information about OpenType functionalities and webfonts by browsing the web, or by hiring a web developer.
Please note that not all browsers are dealing with OpenType yet.
We have an S-M-XL system (written in the font files that you will have in your downloaded webfonts package).
Please consult our Font Formats page for more information on font formats delivered with every purchase.
Find my webfonts
Your webfonts are always accessible from the Order tab, in your account. When selecting an order, you can either click on download to get the full package (desktop, webfonts, license and invoice), or click on Options to select precisely the formats you need.
You are allowed to encore the font with base64. We do not provide any support for Base64 encoding.
Hosting (CDN) or html/css files
We do not product such files as html or css for our webfonts.
We do not host web fonts ourselves, but we allow the self-hosting @font-face technic.
Our webfonts are validated and respect industry standards, and we cannot help on coding a website.
Optimize for screens
Our webfonts are manually optimized for ClearType rasterizers and above (DirectWrite), using TrueType hinting, and hinted in vertical direction only.
