embedded fonts


Embedded fonts are fonts embedded in documents or web pages so that they can be used without being installed locally (a typical feature of PDF files and Microsoft Word documents).

A special embedding licence is required to use the fonts in electronic books rrespective of whether the device contains the font data or merely the designs of the fonts. This licence is available directly online on the font ordering page.
The Typotheque End User Licence allows embedding of fonts in documents when you take reasonable measures to prevent font data extraction. Use the option ‘Embed characters in use only’, when creating the document to make the file smaller and to protect the fonts more.
For technical reasons, PostScript fonts can’t be used to create web-embeddable fonts, so if you licensed PostScript versions of our fonts, you will first need to upgrade to OpenType versions.
If you have already purchased an OpenType font licence from us, you can use the licensed fonts on the web via our font embedding system. It also entitles you to 500MB of free bandwidth per month. Additional bandwidth costs €0.001 per megabyte.
We use a global network of geographically distributed servers (cloud hosting), so you can be confident that the font files will be available at all times. Specifically, we use Amazon Web Services (AWS), a backbone infrastructure that guarantees the highest possible uptime.
Yes, simply select the Self-hosted Webfont option.
Fonts are software, and their use is defined by their End-User Licence Agreement. At the moment, most commercial fonts don’t permit font embedding, but all Typotheque fonts can be embedded via our secure server.
Owners of Typotheque font licences can create embeddable fonts via their Typotheque accounts. Simply enter the domains where the font will be used and the languages to be supported, and our system instantly generates a short block of CSS code.
Up until now, if you wanted to use fonts on a website you were limited to one of the dozen or so ‘web-safe’ fonts (Verdana, Times, Helvetica—you know, the ones you see everywhere on the web).
A special embedding licence is required to use the fonts in electronic books, game playing devices, wearables, gaming and gambling devices irrespective of whether the device contains the font data or merely the designs of the fonts. This licence is available directly online on the font ordering page.
The embedding of fonts in Flash documents is allowed provided that you set embedding to prevent the extraction of the fonts, and that you donʼt resell the Flash documents/templates.
You can use our fonts to create websites, but since visitors may not have the same fonts installed, you will need to convert the fonts to images (GIF, JPG or PNG) so that the pages display as you intend. You can also use the fonts in Flash websites.
The embedding of fonts in PDF documents is allowed provided that you set embedding to prevent the extraction of the fonts.
