Eye-catching fonts and interesting styles are an important — heck, almost necessary — part of every site. That's why Website Font is an invaluable tool for any designer's toolbox. This dynamic program lets you choose cool fonts and modify them to fit your website, then uses Flash technology to make sure they always display in your visitors' browsers.
Back in the not-so-good ol’ days of web design, there were only a few fonts that webmasters could count on to display correctly on their visitors’ computers. Using stylish, non-web-safe fonts wasn’t an option — a shame, because interesting fonts add character and style to your website.
But now you can say goodbye to those boring web-safe fonts. With CoffeeCup Website Font, you can convert all sorts of cool fonts to Flash, which means they’ll always display correctly, regardless of which fonts your visitors have installed on their computers. So say goodbye to Times New Roman and Comic Sans. Now your fonts can be as unique as the rest of your website!
Website Font utilizes the latest technology to create custom fonts that show up in every browser on every computer. How does it work? First, choose a cool font from your computer, a font foundry online, or from the ones included with Website Font. Next, customize it in Website Font. When it looks just the way you want, all that’s left is to paste a little code — provided for you, of course — into your webpage. That’s it!
Website Font gives you a wide array of effects that you can use to craft the perfect font style. Add a drop shadow for depth, create a bevel effect for texture, or make your text glow. Best of all, you have control over all aspects of the effects — color, positioning, opacity, and more. If you’ve created a set of effects you really like, go ahead and save it so you can use it again. With the click of a button, you can import effects from other locations on your computer or export the currently selected effect set to a different location. This makes it easy to share effect sets with your fellow web designers.
