Lots of good news from Typekit as this week they announced several new type foundries have signed up, allowing use of their fonts on the web. New typefaces have been added at every level of service.

Last month FontFont also joined Typekit making over 20 new typefaces available. FontFont is a large type foundry with over 20 years in the business, so it’s great to see bigger companies like that getting involved.

It’s great to see the variety of fonts that are now becoming available to use on websites. It will be interesting to see how web typography develops over the next few years and how we’ll look back at the time when you were restricted to designing websites using only a handful of typefaces.
Typekit has a number of different prices plans:
- Free (costing nada) and allowing 5GB of bandwidth per month and use of the trial library.
- Personal $24.99 per year allowing use of the personal library
