Holy retina burn! Can you hear that? PEW! PEW! It’s our New Feature Laser carving out a sweet new integration into Wufoo! Today, we’re releasing integration with Typekit, which is aimed at our design conscious friends and your inner typophile hipster.

Typekit is a hosted service that allows designers and developers access to a library of high-quality fonts to use on their websites. With our new integration, you can use Typekit’s gallery of professional fonts collected from some of the best type foundries in the world on your Wufoo forms!

What You’ll Need

To start using Typekit fonts on your Wufoo form, you’ll need the following:

  1. Have a Typekit Account.
  2. A kit with fonts setup to allow *.wufoo.com to use it.
  3. The kit’s ID.

Typekit does offer a FREE Typekit accounts that allows you to use up to 2 fonts from their trial library on a single website. A kit is just a collection of fonts you’ve specified that can be used on a website. It is recommended not to use more than 2-3 fonts per kit since these files can get rather large and therefore impact the performance of the page. For a great overview of the new feature, checkout the sweet screencast action from our very own Chris Coyier:

When you create a new kit for use in Wufoo, please note that you need to make sure that you add Wufoo to the list of domains that can use that kit. You can do that by adding *.wufoo.com to the domains setting. Once you have the kit ID, you can just enter that code into the Typekit settings in our Font Picker.

Thanks and enjoy your new access to sexy form typography!

  3. This is so great!! One request/possible bug, though: the html for the confirmation page doesn’t seem to include the javascript call to Typekit, so text on this page falls back to a default, non-Typekit font.
