Hey everyone. I’m using a condensed font through Typekit. I’m trying to come up with a decent looking fallback solution in case Typekit doesn’t load or if I end my subscription to it. I can use an @fontface condensed font as a fallback, but then that’s adding to my page weight and will be mostly redundant. I don’t mind falling back to a sans-serif font but if I do that then I’d need to reduce the font-size for the fallback font. Is that possible to do? I’ve checked out this page: //blog.typekit.com/category/font-events/ and have tried out a few things but to no avail.
I guess I’m asking for opinions. Would you just take the page weight hit and add a condensed @fontface fallback font? Or would you fallback to a “web safe” font and adjust the font-size if Typekit fails/isn’t active anymore?
