How do Web FontFonts work in Typekit?

FontShop Support

Web FontFonts are compatible with Typekit. Our partnership gives users an additional way to serve Web FontsFonts to their sites. The Typekit service delivers fonts from a global network of servers to every browser that supports @font-face. This means Web FontFonts compatibility extends to browsers not yet supported by WOFF and EOT, such as Safari®. Internet Explorer® (6+), Firefox® (3.6+), and Chrome® (6+) all support either WOFF or EOT.

How does it work?

Web FontFonts licensed on can be sent to a free Typekit account. After purchasing your fonts you’ll find a link on your checkout confirmation page. Simply click it to send your license and fonts to Typekit, then follow their instructions to add a single line of code to your site and your fonts will be served immediately. The Typekit option works under their free Trial account and hosting your fonts this way is purely optional.

Got my email but the links don't work.  There appear to be two of them in the email, one on top of the other.  Is there a manual link that can be used to get this done?

Got the exact same problem as Jon today. Both the links in the email are not working. And on my profile page the two links provided in the typekit-area are only marked as «n» and are both brocken (see screenshot). So right now I am unable to link my web font with typekit. Any solutions available in the meantime?

Hi Mike,

thanks for letting us know you're having issues. We are currently looking into and fixing an issue that started last week, causing that detail about Typekit to appear in the confirmation email for all fonts (not just webfonts). However, aside from that bug, please do note that only webfonts from the foundry FontFont can currently be linked to Typekit. For more information on this, please see the article below:

If you purchased your fonts specifically for Typekit, please send us an email directly at with your Order Number and we can take a look at your order.

If you have any other questions, please let us know!
