While webfont services are getting a lot of attention these days, there is still the “old way” of licensing fonts with a one-time license fee. But usually such licenses don’t cover the use of fonts on websites via @font-face. Now Fontspring has opened its store—a font reseller which offers fonts for regular desktop use, but all fonts in the catalogue can also be used with the @font-face rule. If you purchase a license for a font on Fontspring.com you will get an OpenType font to be installed on your computer and web package, that contains TrueType and EOT fonts, which you can upload to your webserver. The license fee may cover single or an unlimited number of domains. This is up to the designer of the fonts. I like the simplicity of this concept and I am looking forward to see which font foundries will join this shop. Looking at the Fontspring catalogue today, I see a few interesting typefaces, but already way too many fonts, which are not really suitable for commercial websites.
