Buying a font license on type.today and tomorrow is meant to take as few clicks as possibles. All orders come with a price check and an electronic check. We also sell licenses via bank transfer, but this takes some extra time and additional payment.
Our customer is an individual (buying online) Choose the license, add it to your cart and pay for it. If you buy online with a bank card, purchased fonts can be downloaded right after the payment.
Our customer is a legal entity (buying online) If you would like to purchase a license for your company, you can do it online following the same procedure as if you were an individual. But you need to include the information on the entity in your account profile. You can pay for our product with any bank card, not only a corporate one.
Our customer is a legal entity (buying offline) If your company prefers to make a non-cash payment, we will sign a contract, draw an invoice and wait for your wire transfer. Such purchase is more expensive, since we have to pay for the services of manager, accountant and lawyer.
If the amount is less than 10,000 roubles, the service will cost 1,500 roubles; with the amount between 10,001 and 60,000 roubles, the service will cost 3,500 roubles; with anything higher than 60,001 roubles, the service will cost 7,000 roubles.
For making it as fast as possible, we kindly ask you:
At our today’s store, the price of a typeface depends on the license type, as well as on the number of users (or the number of visitors on website). At tomorrow’s store, this price depends on the package you are going to purchase: each package includes several types of font use, all varying in scale (see Licenses section).
It is cheaper to buy a whole family than to purchase each typeface separately. Having bought a number of typefaces within one family, you can obtain a license for a full package at any moment, with an appropriate discount. A license for several users costs more than a license meant for a single user — though it is less expensive than it would be in case if every user purchased his own license.
You can upgrade the already purchased license for the fonts from today’s store
For example, you can pay more and upgrade your one typeface license to a complete package of faces within this particular family. In this case, the cost of initial purchase is deducted from the final payment amount. Likewise, a single-user license can be extended to a multi-user license which is meanth for several users.
Font licenses for our tomorrow store’s products can be upgraded to a bigger package (Minimum ⟶ Average ⟶ Maximum ⟶ Individual).
Our system will calculate the cost of additional payment as soon as you type the reference number of your previous purchase in the update field. If there were several purchases, you have to tap in their numbers separated by commas. Reference numbers are to be found in confirmation letters; you can also search your purchase history.
If a payment has cleared, you get three emails:
All our invoices are provided in PDF format. The copy of any invoice is stored at your account, and it can be downloaded (printed) at any time. Please, contact us if you need a paper receipt in a language other than Russian and English.
Our company is registered in Russia, and in some cases type.today has to charge the Value Added Tax, or NDS. If your billing address is outside of Russia, VAT won’t be charged. For making that possible, please, contact us and we will send you the list of required papers we need to provide to the Russian tax authorities for explaining why NDS shall not be charged in your case.
The license for a font purchased online is owned by the person who bought it, — the one who read our End User License Agreement, and agreed to its terms. We recommend that you do not purchase fonts for someone else. The buyer has the responsibility to make sure all users are aware of our EULA and its licensing terms.
If your client, your partner or a friend of yours needs a font, please encourage them to purchase it directly on our website — so that there is no confusion in our database.
A downloaded font cannot be returned. If there is a problem, please let us know within 30 days of purchase and we will address the issue.
Since our company is registered in Russia, we list our prices and issue invoices in rubles. You can always use the option to view all prices in USD, but the transaction will still be in rubles.
We have decided to offer discounts to charities only. If you have such discount coupon code, please enter it on type.today’s landing page prior to purchase.
Occasionally, Cloudpayments system can decline a totally sound payment. When this is the case, you can pay for your purchase using a direct transfer of funds. Please email us your order details, and we will draw you an invoice with all bank details (please keep in mind that in most cases a bank transfer’s processing might take a couple of days).
Here are some possible explanations why your payment won’t go through:
Sorry, we don’t accept PayPal payments at the moment.
Recently, credit card companies are increasingly opting for implementing additional measures to ensure the safety of transactions (it has nothing to do with our website). In particular, both Visa and MasterCard have developed authentication procedures to ensure that the card is used by its owner only.
Since our legal entity is registered in Russian Federation, type.today lists its prices and issues all invoices in rubles. However, for the convenience of our foreign customers, we still display an estimated price in US dollars.
As a Russian-based company, we make all calculations in rubles. Please be aware that an amount appearing on English version of our website represents just an approximate cost, and the final amount of due payment will always be calculated in rubles. If paid from another currency account, the price shall be recalculated in accordance with the Central Bank of Russian Federation’s exchange rate on the date of purchase (or with the use of some other system).
A font is a copyright product, just like a piece of music, a song, or a poem. Every font has an author, whose rights are sacred. It’s only the author who holds full rights to a font, its modification and extension. A license is a permission to use a copyright product in one’s projects. With a license, the author allows to use a font — always on certain conditions and usually on paid basis. Please, do read the License section to avoid violating the conditions. Attention: fonts on type.today and tomorrow have different licenses!
Majority of software, and fonts are no exception, come with an End User Licence Agreement (EULA). Each software comes with its own terms, explaining what is and isn’t allowed when using the fonts. For example, the type.today EULA specifies that you can use licensed fonts for an unlimited amount of time, but that you cannot give the fonts to people who donʼt have a licence to use them. You must agree to the EULA before buying and using our fonts.
Our fonts are a type of software, which means that everyone who uses them needs to have a licence (EULA). If a designer is making a project for the client, it is the designer who needs to purchase the font license. If the client plans on using the fonts, then, a separate licence for the client needs to be purchased as well.
Please read our End User Licence Agreement, agreeing to it makes you legally liable, if you do not follow through. Pay attention to the following:
As a licensed type.today user, you may use the fonts for all your projects as long as you comply with the licence agreement.
Type.today offers various font licences for various applications. There is no limit to the media that you use. Our fonts may be used in print, in video, on a website, etc.
Please note that it is prohibited to distribute the fonts to third parties. You may not place our font data on a server with third party access, but you may upload PNG, GIF or JPG images.
You may create one project or one hundred projects, using our licensed fonts. There are no restrictions.
You can use the fonts that purchase at any time, there is no expiration date on licensed font usage.
Your type.today account functions as a free online backup, because you may download the fonts you’ve purchased at any time. You are allowed to make one backup copy of your own.
You may not modify our fonts in any way, but we are willing to customize a font for you, for an additional charge. Please inquire directly.
You may embed our fonts in PDF documents, as long as you’ve set embedding to prevent fonts’ extraction and you’ve used font subsetting.
We sell licenses for all main font file formats: OTF, TTF, WOFF, WOFF2, EOT, and variable fonts.
We provide three different file packages for all three license types:
Web: ttf-files (in most cases we also provide woff, woff2, eot files)
Tomorrow provides all these formats at once.
In the late 1990s, Adobe and Microsoft joined to make a font format known as OpenType. It became widely used several years later, after Adobe included support for advanced typographic features in InDesign, PhotoShop and Illustrator applications. OpenType fonts support Unicode, which means that a single OpenType font can contain more than 65,000 glyphs. A single font can be used to set texts in various languages, English, Czech, Russian, Greek or Esperanto. OpenType fonts are cross-platform, which means they should work the same on both Mac and Windows computers. Of course, not all OpenType fonts contain thousands of characters. In fact, most of the available OpenType fonts on the market are converted PostScript fonts, that contain only 256 glyphs. We offer fonts with broad language support, that covers all major languages.
The Truetype is an Apple and Microsoft concoction, developed back in 1991, some years after the release of the PostScript Type 1 font format. It was never popular among designers, despite the fact that most of the system fonts on both Mac and Windows computers are TrueType. This format defines curves differently from PostScript fonts and allows for the rendering of outlines using a hinting process, which improves the appearance of TrueType fonts on low-resolution output devices, such as computer monitors and low-resolution printers. Hinting uses a powerful set of instructions to achieve superior on-screen legibility similar to that of handmade bitmap fonts, but with the option to scale the fonts to any size. Unfortunately, incorporating hinting into the font is very time-consuming, and only a few fonts take advantage of this technology. As a result, the average TrueType font appears to display with less quality on-screen than the corresponding PostScript one.
The Web Open Font Format (woff and it later version woff2) is a font format developed in 2009, and is used in web pages. The Web Open Font Format is essentially OpenType or TrueType with compression and additional metadata. The goal is to support font distribution from a server to a client over a network with constrained bandwidth. The format uses special compression, which typically results in a file size reduction from the TrueType format of over 40% Like OpenType fonts, WOFF supports both PostScript and TrueType outlines for the glyphs.
The format has been backed by many of the main font foundries and is supported by all major browsers.
woff 2.0 is based on the Brotli compression algorithm and has other improvements over woff 1.0, giving more than a 30 % reduction in file size.
Embedded OpenType fonts are a compact form of OpenType fonts designed by Microsoft for use as embedded fonts on web pages. They are supported only by Microsoft Internet Explorer, as opposed to competing woff-files.
The font files are made small in size by use of subsetting (only including the needed characters), and by data compression. Like otf fonts, eot supports both Postscript and TrueType outlines for the glyphs.
type.today does not provide svg-files by default. Please, let us know if you need such files.
Fonts located in /UserName/Library/Fonts are available to a particular user, but not to any other users with separate logins for the same machine.
Fonts located in /Library/Fonts are available to all local users of the machine.
Fonts installed in /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Fonts (during installation of an Adobe application) are only available to Adobe applications. To make them available to other applications, move them to /Library/Fonts or /UserName/Library/Fonts.
We don’t recommend that you use font management software, since there have been various reported issues with Suitcase, FontReserve, FontAgent and FontBook. Installing fonts directly into your system is still the most reliable way to use them. If we had to recommend a font manager, we would suggest using Linotype Font Explorer X, since it is known to be reliable for Windows and Mac.
If you have successfully unpacked and installed the fonts, but the fonts are still not available, try the following tips:

Because most type.today fonts come in more than four styles, they donʼt support style linking in the way that Arial or Georgia does. Arial consists of four styles, and clicking on the B icon in your typesetting application changes the font to Bold style. Kazimir Text, however, consists of 22 styles, so clicking the B icon doesnʼt work in all styles except the Regular, (but switching to Italic by clicking the I icon works, since most of our styles contain italics).
Microsoft Office works best with font families of four styles, so the I, B buttons can be clicked to access Italic and Bold.
While all OpenType fonts will work in nearly all existing software, only some applications take full advantage of OpenTypeʼs advanced layout features. Applications such as InDesign, Illustrator, PhotoShop, QuarkXPress 7 (and higher), Word 2010 offer these options.
Other applications such as QuarkXpress 6, FreeHand and older versions of Word only offer access to the first 256 glyphs of the fonts, ignoring the others. Kazimir Text, for example, includes over 1500 glyphs, so in these programs you will be only able to use about 20% of the fontʼs possibilities.
[note] There is a bug in QuarkXPress 6 that reports that fonts are corrupted when they are not. The bug
has been acknowledged by Quark.
If you have a problem with type.today fonts, try restarting your computer first. We do test our fonts rigorously, so chances are that there is a problem with font installation. If you are using a font manager and the font still doesn’t work, try installing directly to the system instead.
If the font still doesn’t work, please do get in touch. Please donʼt forget to mention exactly which fonts you use, how you installed them, which platform you use them on, and which applications they donʼt work in. Providing screenshots from your computer is very helpful. The more details we have, the easier it will be to help.

type.today provides several options to test our collection online. More than that, our site is based on that feature — you can type and test all fonts on each page. Every type.today font comes with a PDF specimen, so download it to better evaluate our fonts.
Another way to test our fonts is to buy one. You can buy a single style of the font, test it yourself, then upgrade to a full package. We will deduct the price of the single style from the price of the full package.
If none of the above options suit your needs, we can also send you a custom PDF with a test setting of type.today fonts. Please send us your InDesign or Illustrator files with your text, specified sizes and the list of fonts youʼd like to try. We will set the provided sample in our fonts and send you back the PDF.
In some rare cases, for clients with references (usually newspaper or magazine designers), we provide a test licence.
Many typefaces from our collection are available at Fontstand. You may now test both Cyrillic and Latin versions of all Custom fonts studio's typefaces. Also you may rent Commercial Type studio's Latin vertions.
