Oops, posted at first with the wrong account. I hate to zombie-bump an old thread, but with NPM available in Meteor there is a much better way to do this. And this is still the top google result for ‘meteor google fonts’.
The method above waits until the DOM is loaded to download webfontloader, which then has to go out and request the fonts you want. Better to bundle webfontloader and streamline the process:
npm install webfontloader, then place anywhere client side:
import WebFont from 'webfontloader';
I discuss this and how to prevent FOUT in more detail in my blog post on the topic.
