Typekit font usage

Hi all,

Admittedly, I'm not so well-versed. But here it goes:

I designed a website look and feel in InDesign. I used a Typekit font (Modish). My developer needs the font and, apparently, does not have an Adobe CC subscription. How do I get that font to my developer?

If I cannot send that font to be used, does it basically render Typekit useless? Did I understand licensing incorrectly?

Please help!

I'm sorry for the confusion!Typekit web fonts are added to your site using a kit and the embed code that we provide. Your developer can either purchase a standalone Typekit subscription to create and maintain kits themselves, or you can provide them access to your Typekit account to set up a kit on your behalf. Standalone subscriptions can be purchased from this page: Plans | Typekit Here's more information about how to use Typekit web fonts:Typekit Help | Add fonts to your website Please let me...

Hi guys. Thank you robertm41109014 for this question, and Molly for explaining.
I'd like to take it a bit further by asking whether it is possible to use a custom (licensed) font, uploaded to Adobe Fonts (formerly Typekit), and then use it in external website builds? I can't seem to find a way to add this uploaded font to a Web Project, as the how-to-guide suggests.

Best regards,
Pierre

No!

And since this has nothing to do with the original post or InDesign, I'm locking this thread.
