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. Commercial use is loosely defined as any usage, (whether internal or external) on behalf of a company/organization or for financial gain. Non-profit organizations are not exempt from licensing. Personal use does not require a license. Please contact us if you're not sure.
Each license is determined by the type of use requested and the company size. Licenses apply to the company/organization 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 license and that's it. Discounted bundles are available for multiple license types. If you've previously purchased a license and would like to use it for a different purpose, contact us for a discounted upgrade.
