At UI Stencils there is only one Queen and King - Paper and Pencil. And, they rule their kingdom with a steady hand. But, when it comes to the digital landscape you will find resources abound. Here is a rundown of our favorites.
Wordmark is a simple and sweet tool that lets you see many fonts onscreen at once. Works well to help you pick the right typeface for your project.
This is a no brainer. It's really a "duh" situation. Primitive and effective. Shows you all the css fonts and lets you grab their css tags fast. If you're not already acquainted please get down to it.
Download vector icons one at time as webfonts. You can even take a vector .svg and drag it right in for an easy export to web font. It's not the only one of its kind, but it’s a cool tool.

The Holy Grail of type books
Kuler is probably the first tool that comes to mind when thinking of a color picker. It’s clean, has mad mojo, and tons of options. Those with Adobe accounts can save their color schemes for later.
A nice little gizmo if you know roughly what color you want, i.e. red, green, beige ect. Simply type the color in the box and instantly see many variations - not a bad place to start.
This tool is so rad! It’s amazingly fun, although highly intuitive we’re not sure how useful it is. Just drag the cursor and click to pick a color. Bam!
