Hey creative people!

Could you guys give me some insight on this product:

WebInk

A quick description:

You simply indicate your chosen fonts directly in CSS with the @font–face tag and WebINK will automatically deliver the right font for the right browser. There’s no need to mess with JavaScript to get the look you want.

Thanks for your help!

Honestly looking at the pricing structure it’d be better to purchases the fonts you want and just use the css tags yourself. That said I think a lot of authors use cufon because it renders more consistently across more platforms then the @font-face

Yeah, fontsquirrel has a nice font-face genrator…

and @font-face renders fine on all platforms, provided the quality of the font is good enough

By the way: Does @font-face work on IE6 ,7 or 8? Didn’t code for a long time.

It’s important to note that when you “purchase” a desktop font, you are actually licensing it’s use, just like any other piece of software. The vast majority of font licenses do not allow you to modify and place fonts on a server for use on web pages.

It’s important to remember that using fonts via @font-face they must be downloaded from your server to the viewer’s machine. You wouldn’t do that with a copy of Photoshop, so why would you do that with a font.

Using a web font service like WebINK, you can be sure that all of the fonts are appropriately licensed, and have been tested for quality.

Also, if you’re a Suitcase Fusion user, we’re giving away one free year of WebINK with every copy of Suitcase Fusion 3 until 12/31/10.

You’ve got to remember most current fonts are are switching there licenses to be web embed-able and if there not web embed-able those services cant use them(unless a special licenses is purchased) in the end it’d still be cheaper to purchase the fonts instead of sticking with a monthly bill and a bandwidth cap

It all depends upon what type of fonts you are interested in using. As of now, there are very few quality fonts licensed for use directly from a web server.

Our aim is to provide high-quality fonts for use on the web, and give you a great selection to choose from. Right now we have about 2000 fonts on our service, and are adding new fonts all the time.

As for “bandwidth caps” I recommend that you choose the need that most closely meets your needs. If you consistently go over your monthly limit, we’ll merely prompt you to upgrade your account. And, with monthly plans starting at $.99 it’s actually quite affordable in comparison to the purchase of a custom web font license.
