Options for

Font Licensing

buying fonts, is infact buying right to use the font software.

When buying our fonts, you can choose one or more in combo from various licence options, depending on your required use of the fonts.


 

This allows installing fonts on a computer, and using them in any print application. Create and print documents, as well as static images (.jpeg, .tiff, .png), even if the images are used on the web or in a mobile app. Print/Desktop licenses are based on the number of users of the fonts; in other words, the number of computers in which the font will be installed.

This allows embedding fonts in web pages using the CSS @font-face rule, so that it can be displayed in browser. Webfonts can be used across multiple websites/domains as long as the websites/domains all belong to the Single License Owner.

This allows you to embed the font file in your mobile application’s code if you are developing an app for iOS, Android, or Windows RT.

This allows embedding fonts in non-editable PDF files or an electronic publication such as an eBook, eMagazine, eNewspaper, eBrochure, PowerPoint Presentation, Automated Billing, Document Composition or interactive PDF.

  • Internet Broadcast License:
    Allows using font software in titling, credits or other text for any onscreen internet broadcast via video. This license is extension of the basic Print & Web License, and needs to be acquired prior to first use.

  • Television Broadcast License:
    Allows using fonts on television, in cinema, motion pictures or documentary film. Its usage refers to the use of the font software in titling, credits or other text for any onscreen broadcast via television, video or motion picture. This license is available in Annual Renewable or Pay Once license extension of the basic Print & Web License, and needs to be acquired prior to first use.

Allow installation of fonts on servers for applications that produce a deliverable with fonts embedded. A server license is required for sites, web apps, or services that allow a non-licensed user to utilize the font to create a product (for example, personalized t-shirts, PDF receipts, business cards, and pictures with captions, etc.).
This license is valid for one year and is renewed each year that the font remains in use. The price is based upon the number of servers on which the font is installed. Development servers do not count toward the limit. A font downloaded with this license cannot be used in SaaS, where the service is the product rather that the item that is created.

Allows embedding fonts into computer hardware (OEM) or software developers (ISV), for commercial distribution. You will need an extension of the basic Print & Web License. You can also buy a desktop license first and upgrade it to embedding license later.

As with any other software, font’s software is also licensed on a per-user basis. For big corporations, it makes more sense to buy a Corporate License rather than going for Multiple-User License which increases cost and hassle. The Corporate License allows the installation and use of the font software by an entire corporation, covering an unlimited number of users and locations.
