Fontspring offers desktop fonts & web fonts on a sharp looking site.
Typekit provides rock solid web hosting for many of my fonts.
MyFonts.com offers web fonts and free updates. If you purchase a web kit, an addendum to the standard EULA applies. You can use a regular license if you want to do your own embedding with less restrictions or pay a little more and get a multi-format, web-ready kit.
Converting them yourself
If you can figure out how to convert and embed fonts on the web, you’re welcome to do so. I recommend the Font Squirrel @font-face Generator. You can convert my fonts (yes, even free ones) for web embedding or you can purchase various web embedding solutions. Please read the embedding section on my license agreement.
@font-face linking is allowed. While it’s not required by the license agreement, I encourage you to protect users from downloading a desktop installable font. If you’re doing your own conversions with Font Squirrel, please use the WebOnly™ option which is on by default in the basic and optimal settings.
Embedding fonts in documents
The current license agreement allows embedding in PDF documents. If you have trouble embedding, make sure you have the latest version of the font. The embedding permissions in my font are set to disallow editing by the recipient. The reason for this is because some popular software applications can’t handle more generous embedding permissions. Fonts can be embedded in any type of document as long as the recipient can’t install or otherwise use the fonts to create something.
Embedding fonts in e-books
The current license agreement allows embedding in any e-book format.
Embedding fonts in software
Typodermic Fonts can be embedded in software as long as the end user can’t use the fonts to create something. Most font companies require custom licensing for this type of situation. Not Typodermic. We’re rapidly approaching an age where using fonts for printing on paper is the rare exception and embedding in applications is normal use. Yet, most font companies require a custom agreement for use in software.
After embedding the fonts in software, can someone using the software use those fonts to create something? For example: digital greeting cards, posters, t-shirts, crossword puzzles, PDF, web templates, signs, DVD menus. If your software allows users to create those things or anything else, then the situation is more complicated than what the regular agreement can provide. A custom agreement is required for that type of situation.
Can someone who uses your software, easily find the font and install it on a computer? Hackers can access almost anything but can a regular person with no special training find the font and install it? If so, you’re making my fonts accessible to third parties which is not allowed in my agreement. I don’t require military grade encryption, just make sure it’s not installable.
Embedding fonts in Games
You’re allowed to embed my fonts in games except for those which allow the end user to create something. For example: some children’s games allow player to create and print their own posters. Most games use fonts to display information to the player: that’s permitted in my standard license agreement.
Some game companies show my license agreement to their lawyers who decide that they require an agreement which specifically indicates exactly what’s allowed. This happens a lot with large game companies. In that case, you should set up a custom agreement.
Embedding fonts in Web templates
If you design web templates, you can include web fonts for an affordable flat rate through Fontspring.
Embedding fonts on Web servers
You can install a font on a server but you have comply with the standard license agreement. If users can create something with those fonts, you’ll have to set up a custom agreement. Examples: business card generator, lolcat generator, t-shirt generator. Of course you have to make sure users can’t download the fonts as that would be clearly providing fonts to a third party.
