licensing


Licensing relates to an agreement granting and documenting permission to use products or materials.

We now offer two different font licences. The Print & Web Licence (formerly the Basic Licence) entitles you to download the font files to your computer and use them in print applications as well as on the web.
Yes, it is possible. Please contact us directly when you are ready to do so. Both users will have to have a Typotheque account and agree to the terms of the licence.
There is no limit on the number of specified domains.
Yes, in addition to Print & Web and Web licenses, we also offer a Web Trial Licence, which gives you a bandwidth limit of 50MB and 30 days to evaluate the fonts. After 30 days or 50 MB (whichever comes first), you will be prompted to upgrade to a Web...
The Print & Web Licence of our OpenType fonts permits you to download the font files and use them in your favourite print applications. When you want to use them on a website, log in to your account to generate a block of CSS code for your webpage.
You pay a one-time fee for the font licence. If you stay within the allocated bandwidth limit (500MB per font per month), there will be no further costs for you. Additional bandwidth costs €0.001 per megabyte, per month.
Yes, simply select the Self-hosted Webfont option.
We issue an electronic invoice for every order. You can access these PDF invoices at any time in your account. If you require a paper copy of the invoice, do get in touch.
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.
For our clients we often customise our fonts. For example: if a certain font is perfect for your situation, but you require a different letter ʻgʼ or ʻ&ʼ glyph, Typotheque can design and implement alternatives based on your needs.
Typotheque has more than 15 years of experience in designing custom type. Custom type may include modifications of our retail fonts, creation of different language versions of our fonts (Greek, Cyrillic, Arabic, etc), or entirely new fonts made to fit your needs.
You can upgrade your current font licence to cover additional users at any time. For example, you can first buy a single-user licence to get a good idea whether the fonts suit your purposes, then upgrade the licence to cover all users in your office.
The embedding of fonts in PDF documents is allowed, provided that you set embedding to prevent the extraction of the fonts and you use font subsetting.
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.
When you output your job, the easiest method is to send PDF or PostScript files to the printer, as this eliminates the need for the printer to use the fonts. If your printer or service bureau needs to work with the fonts, you can get a Service Licence extension for...
You may transfer a previously purchased font licence to a third party if the third party agrees to our EULA in writing and you destroy your copies of the fonts and confirm this in writing too.
There are no time restrictions on using the desktop or webfont licenses, so you can use them for as long as you wish.
There is no restriction on the number of reproductions you are allowed to create using the licensed fonts, so you can create a single print or millions of prints.
As a licensed user of Typotheque fonts you can use the fonts for all your projects as long as you comply with the licence agreement. Typotheque offers various font licences for various applications. There is no limit to the media used; you can use the fonts in print, in video,...
Please read our End User Licence Agreement - it is a legally binding document. The main points of the licence are:
An existing font licence can be extended to any number of users. The price already paid will be subtracted from the total price, thus it doesnʼt matter if you buy a multiple-user licence right away or later. You can upgrade to license more users directly from your account.
Fonts are software, which means that everyone who uses them needs to have a licence (EULA). If a designer is doing graphics work for a client, it is the designer (end user), not the client, who needs to buy a font licence.
Like most software, fonts come with terms of use called an End User Licence Agreement (EULA). Each software developer has its own terms of use, and its EULA specifies what is and is not allowed when using the fonts.
Fonts purchased online are licensed to the buyer, who has of course read the End User License Agreement and agreed to the licensing conditions. You canʼt buy a font on someone elseʼs behalf; the end user must buy it directly.
We offer the option to upgrade either smaller font packages to larger ones, or upgrade single-user licenses to multiple-user licenses. For example, you can buy a single-user license for Fedra Sans Light for €72 now, and upgrade it later to a complete package for the total price of the package...
