Perhaps you’ve wanted to try out Web fonts on your website but haven’t found time to create an account. Or maybe you’d like a better preview of a particular Web font than can be provided by a simple character sample. Either way, we’ve got a tool that can help.

WebFontsPreview.com provides an easy means of testing Web fonts out on the website of your choice. To get started, visit WebFontPreview.com. Next, enter the URL of the site or page on which you would like to preview Web fonts. When the website loads, a toolbar will also appear that allows you to pick the Web fonts you want to display in the site’s headlines and body copy. We’ve stocked the utility with an assortment of favorites to choose from including fonts from our Frutiger® and Trade Gothic® families as well as many others from our catalog of hand-hinted fonts. Click the toggle link to quickly go back and forth between the Web font-enabled and original versions of the site.

WebFontsPreview.com employs some techniques that will work on most, but not all sites, to enable you to preview, experiment and most of all, have fun with Web fonts. Still, there’s no substitute for the real thing. So, if you like what you see, try a free Fonts.com Web Fonts plan to see exactly what Web fonts can add to your site.

We’re already working on some enhancements to the tool that we think you’ll really like. In the meantime, if you have feedback on WebFontsPreview.com or if there are other fonts you’d like us to add, let us know!
