The email newsletter service, MailChimp has expanded design options to include several web fonts.
This is great news for writers who lack general coding expertise, but are skilled in other areas of design. (Ahem. That’d be me.)
I’m thrilled about the new options for my Carolina Ledger newsletter, where I currently use Tahoma for headings. It’s a good standby, although not favored by some designers. I chose it from MailChimp’s limited options because it’s easily recognizable, easy to read and lacks frills.
But it may be time for a change. I’m in the process of learning a little more about web fonts and weighing the benefits before I make a change. For instance, some email clients don’t support web fonts. Even though MailChimp replaces the web font with a standard typeface when necessary, this is something to consider before changing style.
Which typefaces do you love working with?
