Have you ever wondered how designers are able to use beautiful custom web fonts on their sites?
Often they’re adding custom fonts to WordPress using Typekit, an Adobe service that gives you access to high quality fonts.
In this article, we’ll show you how to add Typekit fonts in WordPress to improve your typography.
Why Use Typekit Fonts?
Typekit is a popular subscription-based font service that can save you a lot of money.
Instead of paying for individual font licenses, which can get quite expensive, you can access their whole library of hundreds of fonts for free or for a flat yearly rate.
The Typekit library is a massive collection of over 1,000 fonts. Some of the most beautiful fonts that you can find on the web are available through Typekit, an Adobe service.
Their basic free plan comes with access to 230+ fonts, and you can use 2 font families on one website for free. Other plans start from $49.99 to $99.99 per year.
These awesome Typekit fonts can be easily added to any website without slowing down your page load speeds. The fonts are served from Adobe’s CDN and load at much faster speeds than if you were to host them on your own site.
