Why choose Google Fonts?

I belong to the group of designers that prefer using Google Fonts for various reasons. First of all, these fonts are free for commercial use. This is very important for me because most of my clients can’t understand the impact of choosing a good font face. For that cause, I have to make sure the fonts I use are royalty-free fonts and won’t cost my clients any penalties.

Next reason would be the implementation of the font to the actual website. These fonts are very easy to implement, so the development team will love you more. No need of uploading to the server too. Just a simple <link href=”” rel=”stylesheet”>” link is enough to have them on your website.

Google Fonts have feature where you can restrict some set of characters that you won’t be using on your website, which reduces the loading time by a lot.  Of user experience point of view, this is +1 for you.

 By time, Google increases the list with very good quality fonts. Also many popular font faces appear to be part of the Google Fonts family.
