FAQs

Font Licenses

What font formats do you provide?

That depends on the font you are purchasing. You can see the available formats in the page dedicated to single fonts. 

Can you design a custom font for me?

We usually don’t do client work, as we’re very busy creating high-quality assets, mockups and fonts for our shop. But we’re interested in joining projects we like, so please get in touch with us!

Can i share the font i bought with the members of my team?

That depends on the license you just bought. Have a look at the table at the top of this page to see the number of seats allowed for each license. If you don-t see a solution that feeds your needs, get in contact with us for a custom license. 

I am working on a project for a client. Who buys the license, me or the client?

The license of the typeface, along with other tools you need for design work, should be bought by the designer herself/himself. The client will buy a finished product and is not supposed to work on the typeface himself. The advantage here is that designers can use the same font on multiple projects.

 

If the client wants a copy of the typeface files, then the license must be bought in his name. In this case, you won’t be allowed to use the font after the completion of this client’s project or on any other projects you are working on.
