MARLBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MyFontsSM, the world's leading online provider of fonts and webfonts and a division of Bitstream Inc. (NASDAQ: BITS), announced today that over 10,000 new webfonts have been added to their collection in the past month. With this addition, there are now over 30,000 webfonts from 340 foundries available at MyFonts making it the largest collection of webfonts available anywhere. MyFonts introduced webfonts in January of this year as way to offer customers a streamlined way to purchase and manage fonts for their websites. MyFonts gives users access to a collection of thousands of webfonts without having to pay any monthly fees. Unlike webfont subscription services, MyFonts webfonts are self-contained to ensure complete privacy and maximize website performance. Using webfonts from MyFonts, customers are fully in control of their websites and are not dependent on any external services.
In addition to the new webfonts, MyFonts is also announcing a substantial upgrade of the Webfont Kit Builder. With the new Webfont Kit Builder, customers can better manage their webfonts. An intuitive dashboard lists their webfonts and allows users to build webfont kits optimized for the websites they are developing. Having webfonts organized in this way saves time and helps developers find and use the right webfonts for their projects.
John Collins, Vice-President of Bitstream, Inc., said “Since MyFonts introduced webfonts in January, 2011, the growth in this part of our business has exceeded all of our expectations. It is clear that website developers were in need of a better way to use fonts in their projects, and making webfonts available in this streamlined way successfully meets that need.” He continued, “In particular, we are delighted by how well our approach to webfonts has been embraced by MyFonts customers, providing them with access to a large selection of fonts for all their projects.”
Webfonts are packaged in self-contained kits for easy upload along with other website files. Webfont kits include CSS styles that can be used immediately or tweaked as needed. Webfont kits can be downloaded as often as necessary at no extra charge. Download options allow webfont kits to be customized as needed and each download takes advantage of the latest improvements in webfont technology.
