A lot has changed since we launched Cloud.typography. Browsers have gotten smarter about type, mobile devices have gotten clearer, and everyone’s learned that a website’s fonts play a critical part in making a good first impression. And all the while, we’ve been learning from tens of thousands of designers, developers, agencies, brands, and businesses about how they work, what they need, and how typography needs to work for them. So we’re very pleased to offer two new major upgrades that make it easier than ever to step up to web fonts by H&Co.
Cloud.Typography, now with all the fonts.
For years, Cloud.typography has included any five fonts of your choosing, and the rest available to purchase. Today we’re making things a lot simpler, a lot more flexible, and a lot more valuable: every Cloud.typography subscription now includes access to our complete library of fonts to use on the web.
If you’re an existing subscriber, log in today and start developing with our ever-growing collection of more than 1,500 original fonts. And if you’re not yet using Cloud.typography, subscribe today for as little as $99/year.
Self-hosted web fonts!
We’ve been listening: to developers who like to work offline, to website owners who prefer to serve from their own architecture, and to organizations who need to publish without third-party integrations. So today, we’re pleased to introduce self-hosted web fonts from H&Co.
Whether you’re a Cloud.typography subscriber or not, now you can license any of our fonts for self-hosting, and download them as both woff and woff2 files. In place of Cloud.typography’s Character Set panel that manages complex character sets, H&Co’s self-hosted web fonts use the same OpenType features as our desktop fonts, so that typographic features like small caps or tabular figures (or Stylistic Sets!) can be implemented even more easily, using the CSS font-feature-settings property supported by all modern browsers.
Self-hosting licenses are priced by pageviews per month, and designed to be scalable and affordable for organizations both large and small. And we’re offering self-hosting licenses as either a fixed-cost annual subscription, or a one-time perpetual plan. You’ll find these options available on every font’s product page.
On behalf of all of us at H&Co — the type designers who bring you the fonts, the development team that builds and runs Cloud.typography, and the business group that’s always finding new ways for us to give people more — I want to thank you for making our typefaces a part of how you communicate. We’re committed to making it as easy as possible to speak consistently, clearly, and professionally across all channels, and grateful to have the chance to support your work through ours. —JH
