Icon Font Sets for the Web
Below is a list of my favorite Icon Fonts from around the web. There is a couple Icon Font tools as well that allow you to mix and match and build a really optimized and custom Icon Font for your project. Those tools are by far my favorite however sometimes you just need a specific Icon Font for the job and these are some of the best I have found so be sure to check them all out. MOst are free to use however a couple cost a little money. I have provided the link to each website below the description of each font set/tool. Keep in mind there are hundreds of Icon Font Sets around the web, this is just a list of 21 for now. If you have a killer set you think should be added to the list, feel free to leave a comment below and enjoy.

Stackicons allow you to use a single Flat color or make a multi-color icon by stacking layers. Adding the .st-multi-color class to the icon or its parent element displays multi-color icons (created by stacking pseudo elements). For more than two colors, youll need to add a non-semantic
<span></span> in the markup.
