Font Licensing

  1. What is a EULA?

    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.

  2. Who needs to license 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.

  3. Which license should I purchase for broadcast use?

    If you plan to use one of our fonts in video or in broadcast, you will need to purchase a desktop license that covers the workstations used during production. No additional fees are necessary.

  4. I’m a graphic designer working on a corporate identity. Does my client need to license the fonts too, or can we share one license?

    Your client needs to have its own font license. Separate companies or individuals not employed by the company, but working for it, must each have an appropriate license for the fonts. It is possible to transfer a license to your client, if you destroy all copies of the font in your possession, which includes all backups. You will also need to provide a copy of our standard End User License Agreement along with the fonts.

  5. Can I trade in a desktop license for a web license or a mobile app license?

    No, licenses are not transferrable from one platform to another.

  6. I have purchased a web or app license. Can you send the desktop fonts for comping?

    No. The webfonts may only be used on a web server, and will not work on desktop software, including Adobe Photoshop. You must purchase a desktop license, if you wish to make comps. The web fonts are licensed per domain, so they may be used by as many developers as you need to code your site. Please note, you'll need an individual license for each App-platform.

  7. I’m studying graphic design and would like to use one of your typefaces in a project. Do you offer student discounts?

    We do not offer student discounts. We offer significant family discounts to all users, which means that we cannot discount our prices further for single users. We do however offer substantial discounts for colleges and universities. Contact us for more information.

  8. How the licence works:

    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:

    1. The standard licence gives font usage permission to a single user. An upgraded licence that covers multiple users is necessary for any additional persons.
    2. When you purchase the license, you only purchase the right to use the fonts. The fonts remain the exclusive property of type.today and its original creators (designers).
    3. You can back up the font data, (in fact, your type.today online account has a backup of the latest font versions), but you may not modify the fonts in any way.
    4. If the fonts do not work, we will replace them.
    5. You may not create other fonts based on our fonts. You also may not sell or rent modified versions of our fonts.
    6. If you plan to embed the fonts in games or other software, you will need a special license to do so.
    7. Fonts may be embedded into PDF and Flash files for free, but you must set embedding to prevent font extraction.
    8. All type.today fonts are copyrighted and protected by our and it’s designer trademark.
    9. If you violate these terms, the EULA will be terminated and you will lose the legal permission to use our fonts.
    10. You may transfer the font licence to a third party if he or she agrees to the licensing conditions in writing. In return, you must destroy your copies of the fonts and confirm it in writing as well.
    11. We cannot guarantee that the fonts will be appropriate for your projects.
