Looking for a way to give your blog a new look? A well-designed font can help give your blog personality, and help it stand out in the crowd.  We've partnered with Typekit, a great new company that's bringing professional fonts to the web, to help you integrate Typekit fonts into your TypePad Unlimited blog...and bring you a discount on their services!


Typekit is a subscription-based service that takes advantage of new capabilities in modern web browsers to bring high-quality, fully licensed fonts to your blog -- even if your readers don't have those fonts installed on their computers.  For example, check out what these great TypePad bloggers have done with Typekit...
