Hosted webfonts are the perfect solution for small site owners, bloggers, start-ups etc. - for anyone with a basic need, and website traffic below 250.000 page views per month.
Playtype has partnered up with Fontstand, who now hosts Playtype fonts, ensuring secure hosting and providing the correct formats for optimal quality across browsers. It is easy to use, and does not require specific knowledge other than your basic HTML and CSS.
License & cost
If the need is below 10.000 page views per month, the web license comes with a desktop rental at Fontstand. After that, the usage is free as long as the traffic is below 10.000 page views per month. More traffic involves a monthly recurring fee depending on number of page views. Go to Fontstand to learn more on terms and pricing.
Self-hosting is a great choice for professionals, heavy traffic sites, corporate domains etc. - anyone that requires full control, has high expectations for performance, a wish to host fonts on own servers and has several domains and/or traffic that exceeds 250.000 page views per month.
Playtype offers a Web Font Self-hosting License. This allows you to serve web font files within your own server environment. It also gives you the opportunity to receive a customized sub-set, with specific language and feature sub-settings. The web fonts will be delivered as .eot, .woff, .woff2, and with a css-description for easy implementation.
License & cost
A self-hosting license is based on an annual fee. It allows for use of the licensed Playtype fonts across all your web domains. Get in touch for more information and a non-binding quote.

Fontstand Desktop App - currently only for Mac OS. A PC version is in the making, but with no fixed release date.
