Speaking of web fonts, we continue to add new fonts to our catalog of premium quality web fonts. What makes Ascender's FontsLive web font service stand out is that we hand-tune every font for maximum readability on screen. This process, called "hinting" makes Ascender's web fonts look their best at text & headline sizes on Mac, Windows and even mobile devices like the iPhone & iPad.
