Web font services overview makes choosing a provider easy

With so many web font providers available, choosing a service can be a difficult task. Sylvia Egger has made that job a bit easier with this comprehensive overview of all the major players and their offerings.

It would be good to have some sort of pricing comparison. Fonts.com looks like a real winner in this overview, and it’s a pretty great service — but when you compare the pricing model to runner-up Typekit, it’s clear that you don’t get the same bang for buck despite Fonts.com having more fonts and better features.

On the other hand, you might have certain needs — for instance, the ability to use the fonts available in Photoshop mockups — that are worth the extra spend. This chart is handy for finding the best match based on features alone, and then leaves the pricing research to you.
