Google Fonts Not Displaying in my Email

I am having trouble getting Google fonts to display in my email. It displays on locally through my browser but when I send tests to Gmail, MSO, etc., it is not working. I am able to get MSO fallback to be Arial, but I don't understand how I am not getting it to display even on Gmail.

Here is what I have in the

</head>
and immediately after the
<body>
:

Answer

Gmail doesn't support @font-face yet.

Take a look at the support here at Campaign Monitor for web fonts

Web Fonts in Gmail

Finally, despite have a wildly popular web fonts service, Gmail does not support the use of the @font-face property. Designers that use web fonts in emails should carefully consider their font-stack, as their backup fonts will be rendered in Gmail.
