We just recently launched the Typecase plugin for WordPress, and it’s probably one of the most exciting projects I’ve been involved in for UpThemes. The plugin offers the ability to implement real web fonts on your WordPress website in just a few quick steps. I’ve attached our promotional video explaining the Typecase plugin along with its big brother, Typecase Pro, which is available at UpThemes.com for $19. I wanted to quickly answer a few questions about what Typecase means for WordPress.
Why Use Typecase Instead of Typekit or Fontdeck?
All those services are really great. They offer the ability to integrate normally expensive web fonts into your website for a monthly fee. The only problem with that is sometimes you come across a client that doesn’t understand the value of web fonts as a monthly service. The bottom line, they have no interest in paying every month for web fonts. That’s where Typecase comes in.
Typecase allows you or your clients to manage their WordPress web fonts within ANY theme. No monthly fees, just an easy-to-use web font management interface that makes it easy to browse, search, and add web fonts to your website.
Typecase is perfect for the font addict, offering a growing collection of 500+ web fonts served from Google with the ability to change and update your font selection on-the-fly at any time. It’s a unique and simple approach to web typography and it makes the lives of a WordPress developer easier by giving control to the user regarding which fonts to select for their audience.
We’re excited about new features for Typecase Pro and hope to release details about those features very soon.
For now, download Typecase and enjoy managing your web fonts directly in WordPress.
