Interested in possibly licensing one of our fonts? You've come to the right place. Although every file is free for download, you must have an EULA (end user license agreement) to use one commercially. If you or your company is generating revenue while using a Sharkshock™ font this would classify as commercial use. Personal use does not require a license of any kind. Please contact us if you're not sure.
Each EULA is determined by the type of use requested and the company size. Licenses apply to the company that will be using the font (not the designer). Unlike other foundries we do not limit page views on webfonts, calculate users, or offer licenses that expire/have to be renewed. There are no royalty agreements. You pay one price for your EULA and you're done. Discounted bundles are available for multiple license types. If you've previously purchased an EULA and would like to use it for a different purpose, contact us for a discounted upgrade.
Step one: choose your Usage type
ONE TIME DESKTOP USE
The font will be installed and used exactly once. Common examples of this are a company logo, book cover, corporate poster, or political ad. E books, apps, software, film/TV, commercials, games, manufactured products (except t-shirts and crafts), and webfonts are excluded. Please make note of those menu items. This option cannot be combined with another one. You may upgrade if you find more uses beyond one time use. Upgrade fee is equivalent to price difference of desired usage type.
UNLIMITED DESKTOP USE:
This option gives you the flexibility to do what you want beyond the one time use. Common examples include advertisements, web graphics, and publishing. Exporting into PDF files is OK. You will have unlimited use with the exception of e books, apps, software, film/TV, commercials, games, manufactured products (except t-shirts and crafts), and webfonts. Please make note of those menu items. This may be combined with other options for discounted rate.
E BOOK USE:
The font will be used for the publishing of e books. There is no limit on characters or number of e books. May be combined with a different option for publishing at a discounted rate. Usage is unlimited.
Font will be used on a website using CSS. Typekit can be provided. There are no limits on page views as usage is unlimited. Please visit the @font-face website for more information on using and installing webfonts. Can be combined with other options for discounted rate.
Font will be used in games, mobile apps, or computer software. Software in which end users can create graphics using the font is not permitted. Can be combined with other options for discounted rate.
FILM /MEDIA USE:
This option covers all spectrums used by TV networks, media broadcasting, video streaming providers, film industry, and any company requiring related usage including, but not limited to titles, credits, posters, commercials, ads, packaging, and DVD/blu ray interface.
With this option you will have unlimited access to every Sharkshock font created up to the license date. Future fonts will be discounted by 50%. All usage types are included. This can be attractive if you're considering multiple licenses or several different fonts. Sale of the font(s) is not permitted. Updates are included as well.
