Font Talk Forum

Today we are launching a new forum that replaces our old Squirrel Chatter forum that long ago died.


Font Filtering (continued)

A few months have passed since we released some cool filtering options for finding fonts on Font Squirrel. Since then we have been tweaking away… language filtering being the most notable change. However, the filtering tools are only as good as our tags, so I am in the process of re-tagging the collection so that the tags are comprehensive and consistency. In the meantime, be patient as the tags may seem a little screwy because half of the library is retagged. Stay tuned for more updates!


Meet IM Creator

Whether you are a photographer, graphic designer, looking to create a portfolio site or whatnot, you will find a great template at IM Creator. So give them a try and let us know how it works for you and your website needs.



Last month, we released a minor update that included some basic font filtering. Your feedback and appreciation was great and inspired me to improve it significantly. Let us know what you think on Twitter or Facebook, or email me at hello at


Type Designers
and Web Fonts

Some type designers are criticized regularly for not allowing @font-face embedding in their licenses. Between Font Squirrel and our sister site Fontspring, we've worked hard developing the technology and making it accessible to everyone who wants to try it out. While the generator has clearly had a big impact on the world of web fonts we must respect type designers requirements as to what can and can't be done with their masterpieces.


SVG Support In the Generator


Big Generator Upgrade

We're constantly iterating with the Generator, and here are the latest changes. Among them, a tweaked main menu, OpenType feature-flattener and spacing adjustments.


The Official "How to Use the Generator" Post

The Generator offers web designers the ability to convert any font into easy to use @font-face webfonts. Some of you find it so easy and intuitive that it requires no explanation. Others of you need a bit more detail on the hows and whys. This post should answer most of your questions.


The Font Squirrel API

We've implemented a simple system you can integrate into your web applications to get at our font data.


Troubleshooting Font-Face Problems

Each browser has its own idiosyncrasies that will cause headaches for web developers trying to get webfonts working on their websites. This short post details some of the common reasons some browsers will fail to load fonts.


Font Squirrel Nominated for Best Web App by .net Magazine

The annual .net Awards has included Font Squirrel as a nominee for Best Web App of the year. We're honored to be in the voting for our site and the @font-face Generator tool.


The Big Web Show Interview

Font Squirrel's own Ethan Dunham along with Typekit's Jeff Veen discuss the current state of webfonts. This was the inaugural show produced by Jeffrey Zeldman and Dan Benjamin.


The Web 2.0 Show Interview

Last week I had a chat with Adam Stacoviak of the Web 2.0 Show about Font Squirrel and all things @font-face. If you are interested in hearing the guy behind the squirrel, check it out.


My Six Year Old Font Squirrel

My son came home from school the other day having completed a complete specimen sheet for a new font. I promptly converted it for him. What do you think?


@font-face Generator Expectations

We are all very excited to finally see browsers support some form of font embedding. Hurray you get to use any font you want now. While we were all celebrating that fact, the elephant in the room started trumpeting...


Welcome to Font Squirrel

I hope to add some useful posts here soon. Thanks for stopping by!
