Information about Adobe discontinuing Typekit Enterprise

Adobe has announced that it will soon be discontinuing the Typekit Enterprise service that Finalsite was using to serve web fonts to our clients' sites. As a result, all licensing for these fonts must be transferred to your own Adobe Creative Cloud account for continued use on your website.

What do I need to do?

Please see the list below for your options.

  1. Transfer to an existing Creative Cloud account: If you already subscribe to a Creative Cloud account, we will need the username on your account to transfer the font licensing. Please use the button below to complete the transfer process.

  2. Create a new Creative Cloud account: If you do not have a Creative Cloud account, there are some inexpensive options available from Adobe that will allow you to license the fonts. Please use the below link to review plan options.

  3. Remove Typekit fonts from your website: If you do not currently have a Creative Cloud account (and do not plan on purchasing one), we can consult with you on removing and replacing the fonts on your website. In most cases, this will involve a fair amount of design and development work to ensure the new font selections do not impact the functionality and layout of the site. Please consult with your Client Success Manager or open a ticket with our Support team to begin this process.

How do I know if I'm using Typekit?

Your organization should have received an email from Finalsite. If you did not, and you're curious if you might be using Typekit, you can navigate to your website and follow these steps.

  1. Navigate to the homepage of your website (in Chrome, if possible).

  2. Right-click on the screen and select "Inspect."

  3. Select Command+F (Mac) or Control+F (PC) and type "typekit" into the search box that appears.

If "typekit" appears in the code, you are using Typekit and will need to follow the steps above.

If you do not see typekit appear but are concerned, please feel free to reach out to Support.

What Adobe Fonts are being used on my site and where are they being used?

To find out what fonts are being used on your site, the above method of searching in the code for "typekit" will display all instances of each Adobe font.  The font-family attribute will give you an idea of which fonts are being used.

To see where these fonts are being displayed, your site's Style Guide page (located under the Production branch) will have a preview of all your site fonts.

If you have any additional questions, please reach out to your Client Success Manager or Support.

When does this task need to be completed by?

To avoid any disruptions with your font, you will want to complete the above tasks before November 1, 2019.

What if we are starting a redesign soon?

If you are launching your brand new site before November 1st, you should be fine. If you are not sure or that date might change, then you will want to go through this process to ensure that the fonts on your current site look correct.

I filled out the form. What happens now?

You should receive an email confirmation that you have completed the form containing the information that you provided to us. We will then follow up with you via email when the Typekit has been transferred. 

Who can I contact if I still have questions?

Please reach out to your Client Success Manager or Support if you have any additional questions.
