    Hey everyone. I was wondering if anyone else has run into a problem with fonts not rendering properly on a mac? The font in question is Impact. It looks fine on the pc, but on the mac, it is “blurry”. The font is used for the title of the movies and in a few other places.

    Are you importing the font via @font-face? I’m pretty sure that Impact is not a native font in OS X, so any Mac user (or iOS user) won’t see it.


    Impact is a native font on Windows, OS X 10.4+, and even iPhone. @font-face shouldn’t be necessary.

    Looks fine to me on my Macbook. However, Impact is intended mostly for headlines, at smaller sizes it renders like crap. Have you tried scaling up the text to see if the blurriness stays?


    Well there ya go then!


    The font was specified by the client. They used it on the header and specified the size as well, now they don’t like it…..they’re “designers” in their minds!!!
