If you missed the announcement last week (like I did), web designers who love typography received an early holiday present.
Shoutout to Trent Walton for sharing the news this morning on Twitter:

According to the announcement, there’s no change in what’s offered with Typecast. Everyone who has a Typecast account will continue to:
…work with over 100,000 web fonts from the Fonts.com, MyFonts, Typekit, Google, Webtype, Fontdeck and Monotype libraries all under one roof
Anyone with a current paid Typecast subscription should have received an email message last week about the change.
Designers who preciously had a Typecast + Fonts.com bundle will be transferred to a Fonts.com account. Your new plan with Fonts.com will cost less than before (since Typecast is now free.)
More info about the change:
- Typecast is automatically bundling their free account with Fonts.com’s free plan
- Expired Typecast accounts have been reactivated. If you used a trial version in the past, you can log back in and begin on your project again.
- All current projects remain intact
Are you using Typecast? Or if you stopped using it, will the new free plan entice you back?
