Extensis announces Suitcase Fusion 3.0, WebINK

updated 12:30 am EDT, Thu August 5, 2010

New web font rental service

Extensis has introduced an update to its professional-grade font manager, Suitcase Fusion, as well as a new web-font rental service named WebINK. Suitcase Fusion 3.0 provides tools for adding and altering fonts, with previews available before publishing. New features include auto-activation plug-ins for Adobe InDesign and Illustrator, a new "QuickMatch" function for comparing fonts, and the ability to manage and select fonts through the company's new WebINK rental service.

The update provides a new preview tool that allows users to view how fonts will look on a web page, along with a QuickType option which can be used to quickly convert any font into a PNG preview. The latest version also offers enhanced font-corruption checks, enabling the software to detect and remove damaged font in less time than previous versions.

WebINK provides designers with access to a variety of web fonts, while allowing users to preview different typefaces before renting them. The new service includes over 2000 web fonts, from nine different partner foundries such as Darden Studio and TypeTogether; with additional typefaces and partners said to be added on a regular basis. Aside from browsing and selecting different typefaces, users can also manage them through the integrated WebINK tools in Suitcase Fusion 3.0.

Suitcase Fusion 3.0 is compatible with Mac OS X 10.5.8 or higher, with pricing set at $100 for new users or $50 for customers upgrading from previous versions. WebINK is available as a free 30-day trial, which allows users to implement an unlimited number of web fonts on any websites without charge, after which prices start at $1/month depending on the plan needed. Users purchasing or upgrading to Suitcase Fusion 3.0 receive a year of free WebINK service.
