Font files can easily make up to 33% of your website's size, forcing users to download large amounts of data and slowing down your website speed. This can negatively impact your SEO rankings, as well as frustrate users.
I specialize in optimizing website speed. And font compression can be a useful tool in your optimization arsenal. Most fonts contain many unnecessary characters (also known as glyphs), which bloat font file sizes. Removing these glyphs can reduce your font file sizes significantly.
I use FontForge to dig into your font families and restructure them to be as optimized as possible. And while there are tutorials around the internet for how to do this yourself, it can be difficult to do on your own without some knowledge about how fonts work and what can safely be removed.

How does this work?
Simple. After purchase, your download will include instructions on where and how to upload the fonts. I will reach out to you to verify what you are looking for. At this point, we can also talk via Zoom (or some other video service) to make absolutely sure you get what need. I'm a native English speaker based in Chicago and have 10 years of experience in design and development. I will guide you through the process from start to finish.
How much space will I save?
Typically the process will reduce the file size by about 80%. But it really depends on what font family you are using, as well as how much can safely be trimmed. I've performed this on my own website, and I saved over 90% of space because I was very aggressive with what glyphs I felt comfortable removing.
What fonts can you compress?
Pretty much any font can be compressed. Google fonts, Adobe fonts, serif or sans serif fonts, display fonts, even variable font weight fonts.
What if I'm unhappy with the results?
No problem! If for some reason I can't get you the results you are looking for your money will be refunded. There's no reason this should happen as I've successfully reduced hundreds of fonts without issue, but I want customers to have peace of mind before making a purchase.
Do I really need to do this?
Yes and no. I encourage you to check your website speed using a site like Pingdom. You may be surprised by just how much space is being used by your fonts. And while there are other ways to reduce your font usage on a website, this is really the most aggressive approach.
For small websites using only a single font, that may already be compressed, this service might not be for you. But if your users are downloading more than 100 KB of data for fonts, then it could be worth it to invest in smaller font files.
Studies have shown that website conversion rates drop by 4.4% with each additional second of load time. So finding any and all ways to optimize your site speed is a reasonable approach. It can be the difference between a sale and a bounce.
