Getting Started with Typekit and Creative Cloud

Typekit is available standalone or as part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud service. Most Creative Cloud subscriptions include a Typekit Portfolio plan with access to our full library of fonts; a few Creative Cloud options include a Typekit Free plan, with a subset of the fonts available. Refer to the System and subscription requirements page to learn which Typekit plan is included in your Creative Cloud subscription.

If you are new to Typekit, first subscribe to Creative Cloud. Then, sign in to Typekit with the same Adobe ID you used to subscribe to Creative Cloud.

Now you can begin using Typekit. Browse the library of fontsselect some for sync, or learn how to add fonts to your website.

Link an existing Typekit account to a Creative Cloud membership

Adobe Creative Cloud is a membership service where you can create, publish, and share your work using Adobe Creative Suite applications plus touch apps, and services — including Typekit. A Typekit plan is included with every Creative Cloud membership, and current users can link an existing Typekit account to Creative Cloud. Refer to the System and subscription requirements page to learn which Typekit plan is included in your Creative Cloud account.

In order to link your Typekit account to your Creative Cloud membership, you must update your Typekit account to use an Adobe ID. If your account hasn't been linked to an Adobe ID, email support@typekit.com and we’ll help update your account information.

Next, subscribe to Creative Cloud. Be sure to subscribe to Creative Cloud using the same Adobe ID you use for Typekit.

After subscribing to Creative Cloud, sign in to Typekit with your Adobe ID. You will see a message confirming that your Typekit account has been linked to your Creative Cloud membership.

If your Creative Cloud membership comes with a Typekit Free plan, there will be no change to your existing Typekit account after linking.

If your Creative Cloud membership includes a Typekit Portfolio plan, your account may be upgraded. Read on to see how your plan may change, and refer to the System and subscription requirements page to learn which Typekit plan is included in your Creative Cloud account.

Free plan and Creative Cloud

If you have an existing free Free plan and your Creative Cloud membership includes a Portfolio plan, we will immediately upgrade you to a Portfolio plan.

Personal plan and Creative Cloud

If you have an existing Personal plan and your Creative Cloud membership includes a Portfolio plan, we will immediately upgrade you to a Portfolio plan and issue a prorated refund for the time remaining on your prior Personal plan. You will no longer be billed separately for your Typekit subscription.

Note that you must sign in to https://typekit.com to claim your refund. No refund will be issued until you sign in to Typekit and link your accounts.

Portfolio plan and Creative Cloud

If you have an existing Portfolio plan and your Creative Cloud membership includes a Portfolio plan, we will immediately issue a prorated refund for the time remaining on your prior Typekit billing plan. You will no longer be billed separately for your Typekit subscription.

Note that you must sign in to https://typekit.com to claim your refund. No refund will be issued until you sign in to Typekit and link your accounts.

Performance plan and Creative Cloud

Your existing Performance plan will be unchanged when linked to a Creative Cloud membership. But, if after linking your accounts you decide to downgrade to the Portfolio plan, you may request a prorated refund for the time remaining on your prior Performance plan. To do so, you must first downgrade your account at https://typekit.com/account; then, you can email support@typekit.com to request your refund. This refund is only available to users who downgrade within 30 days of subscribing to Creative Cloud.

Note that you may only downgrade to the Portfolio plan if the total traffic across all of your kits is below the Portfolio plan limit of 500,000 pageviews/month. If you need more traffic, the Performance or Business plans are best for you.

Business and Enterprise plans and Creative Cloud

Your existing Business or Enterprise plan will be unchanged when linked to a Creative Cloud membership. Business plan users who downgrade to a Portfolio plan will no longer be billed by Typekit, but are not eligible for a refund.

Upgrades and downgrades with Creative Cloud

You may upgrade the Typekit portion of your Creative Cloud membership to a higher plan (for example, to support more pageviews or synced fonts). To do so, visit your account page and select “change your plan.” Then, select which plan you’d like. When you upgrade, you will be billed separately for your upgraded Typekit plan; your Creative Cloud billing will remain unchanged.

Once upgraded, you can downgrade at any time to the plan that is included in Creative Cloud. If your Creative Cloud subscription includes a Portfolio plan, you cannot downgrade to the Free plan.
