They used “artbrush” as their main font. I tried to used it and it is indeed not optimized for web because the letters are being cut in the right side so I decided to just use it for headings and look for a body font for it.
I will try to show them the font you suggested and see if they’ll like. Though I doubt coz’ they’re in-love with this “artbrush”.
Cancel my suggestion on those two typefaces I suggested. Neither are sufficient for this design.
You also need to inform your clients why Artbrush is not sufficient on the web. I would also recommend testing Artbrush on multiple platforms (iOS, OS X, Windows, etc). Are they willing to invest in quality typefaces?
It’s a WIP right now and I’m working locally. Hopefully they will give their cpanel account tomorrow so I can upload to a sub domain. It’s basically skeleton with dummy content yet but if you want to see how the artbrush looks I can give the link tomorrow.
@taxicss I did not have enough time today to help you like I was hoping. I’ve been working on my own projects and juggling homework at the same time (not a good idea). I did take time to find you a suitable typeface for your body copy. If you’d like, I can recommend a few professional Typographers that do have the time to recommend typefaces for your headings? I really wish I had more time to help you.
@chrisburton I really appreciate the time and help sir. I showed them the font and they like it. Do you have any recommendation on how will I use it? Will I buy it directly from the link you gave and use at @font-face?

If you want to use it via @font-face, you’re looking at $400/yr per style for their self-hosting license. So you’d be looking at $800/yr just for those two styles.
I would recommend their hosted service at $20/yr per style . That would come out to a total of $40 for both Giza RE Regular and Giza RE Italic. If you need the bold weight as well, which it seems you do, add an additional $20/yr.
Giza RE Regular: $20/yr
Giza RE Italic: $20/yr
Giza RE Bold: $20/yr
After purchase, you will be provided with a link to a CSS file which you will put in your head section. Like this:
