Website Font Recommendation
# January 12, 2013 at 4:29 pm
I am looking to improve my website and add in some new fonts. I have never done this before so just looking for some guidance. I have always like Myriad Pro – Sans serif but do not know if it would look good or not. If you could recommend some fonts that would be great. Thanks everyone# January 12, 2013 at 5:48 pm
You could use a typekit. Typically you can get one for free but you could pay more for access to more fonts. What you do is choose your fonts, and then paste a line of code in your head> to link out to the typekit to display your fonts. I use adobe’s typekit.com, there’s also fonts.com and probably many more.# January 12, 2013 at 6:06 pm
Gosh, I hope @Eric is being sarcastic.
For sake of quality, I’d go with Webtype. You can choose two styles for that amount. Lately I’ve been a big fan of Benton Sans.
If you want a more robust selection, go with Typekit’s Portfolio plan.
Let me know which you choose so I can help narrow down your requirements for a selection.
Choosing webfonts is just like developing a site that’s cross-platform/browser compatible. Many people don’t test their selections which usually end up looking horrible on Windows. That’s why I recommend Webtype but Typekit does a decent job as well (sometimes).# January 13, 2013 at 3:26 am
The neatest thing about Webtype is it allows you to try out a font before buying it.
Other options include [Font Squirrel](http://www.fontsquirrel.com) which has some good fonts and is free. On a limited budget, you might try refining your search at [My Fonts](http://www.myfonts.com) to include $80 max price.
