Hi Guys i have to use a custom fonts in my web page for that i have generated css in “http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface/generator” but it throw “Error” message when i upload my .ttf fonts. As i guess shows that it blacklisted fonts.
Well, you need to make sure that the font’s license specifically allows them to be used on the web, many of them require a separate license even if you purchased it for your desktop…Goto google.com/webfonts and see if you can;t find something similar.
I support font designers. I pay for my fonts.And I said Microsoft, if I need Arial Black and I m using Linux, do you think I m going to buy it?. but, Gill Sans MT was created by mr. Gill in 1926. and here it says :
Don’t worry, I support designers more than a lot of people, I just knew that somebody was going to interpret that as bragging. Alright, I said too much already. Before I start getting called a troll. Far from that, I dedicated my life to art. I m just worried when people think that a company like Microsoft deserves respect. Do you think they care about artists?
I don’t use Google fonts often, but I can certainly understand @TheDoc‘s vote. I think the better question would be why you wouldn’t recommend Google Web Fonts @ChristopherBurton?
You say that you use Font Squirrel to generate the correct @font-face CSS, but Google Web Fonts also use @font-face. The rendering may not be as nice as Typekit, but it’s no different to using Font Squirrel.
Is it due to their selection? Not everyone will have the same tastes as you or I.
