What’s Fontfabric Type Foundry?

Contrary to popular searches on Google, we are not producing fabrics of any kind. We would be very bad at it.

But we have been, however, developing retail and custom fonts for designers and brands from all around the world for over 12 years now. You might know us for the global bestsellers Nexa, Mont, and Intro, or custom typography for companies like Nike, Transavia, Axel Springer, Silverstone, to name a few.

Please refer to the individual font pages on our website to browse the list of OpenType features included in the Info tab. Also, make sure to check which software on your computer, tablet, and smartphone support work with OpenType features.

On our website, we offer several ways to put both retail and free fonts into use.

Our retail typefaces have a trial version available which includes all font styles with a minor decrease in features and glyphs. All trial fonts are for personal use only.

Some font styles in our retail typefaces might be published as demo fonts which you can use for both personal and commercial purposes. Keep in mind the demo fonts come with a decreased number of features and glyphs.

You will also find free versions of separate font styles in our retail typefaces and completely free font families. All free fonts on our website can be used for both personal and commercial purposes.

Can I modify your fonts?

You may not modify, adapt, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble, or create derivative works based on our fonts without our foundry’s prior written consent. That means to edit/modify the font files themselves in font editors/software/programs like FontLab Studio, Fontographer, Font Creator, TypeTool, BitFonter, Glyphs, FontStruct, RoboFont, etc.

You may import characters from the fonts as graphical objects into a drawing program (Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Corel Draw, etc.) and modify such graphical objects.

Can I publish my font at Fontfabric Type Foundry?

We are open to font development collaborations and supporting font projects for a cause. Drop us a line contact@fontfabric.com to see if we’re a good match.

I can't find a special glyph, letter, or sign in your font.‎

Start by verifying whether our font supports the glyph you’re looking for by checking the Glyph Map tab on the font’s page. Each glyph comes with a Unicode which you can see by hovering on the individual glyphs.

Next, go to your editing software and search for font-related panels which allow you to switch between available glyphs, letters, and signs. If the editing software you’re using doesn’t provide such features you won’t be able to access the full glyph set of our fonts.

If you still can’t find the glyph that should be included in the font according to our website, drop us a line explaining the issue at contact@fontfabric.com

Font doesn’t match what I saw on your website.

Most often users see the alternate characters of a font displayed in their editing software instead of the default ones and end up confused.

Please verify all font features are toggled off so only the default characters of your Fontfabric font are displayed.

On our website, we aim to include images of our fonts using both default and alternate characters for optimal inspiration.

Why can’t I see my Fontfabric fonts anywhere on my computer?

Start by confirming you’ve installed your Fontfabric fonts properly. If you’re still not seeing them in your respective Font manager go ahead and give your computer a good old restart.

Please check your font manager again in case the font has not been placed alphabetically. You might be experiencing issues because there are too many fonts in your system already.

However, we are aware of various operating system-specific issues that affect users’ font files. Please refer to online Windows and MacOS forums for specialized answers, or drop us a line at contact@fontfabric.com and we will attempt to find a solution that works for you.

I get a “Font is not valid” message on Windows and can’t add your font to my Fonts folder. How can I fix this?

Try the following troubleshooting steps:

  1. Click on the Start and then Settings;
  2. Click on System and select App and Features on the left pane;
  3. Now click on Manage optional features on top of the right pane;
  4. Scroll and select the desired font.

Drop us a message at contact@fontfabric.com if the issue persists.

What is an EULA?

EULA stands for End-User License Agreement. In it, you’ll find the conditions you agree to when purchasing a paid font or downloading a free one. This agreement states all types of licenses offered, along with any rules and limits you (and your client when working for hire) are bound to follow.

There are two types of user licenses that we offer:

1. Standard End-User License: issued with individual font purchases covering the most popular uses (Desktop, Webfont, App, ePub, etc.)

2. Custom End-User License: tailored to specific client needs and issued after a professional consultation and negotiations

Read our full Non-commercial EULA and Commercial EULA for details.

What are the common restrictions in font licensing according to Fontfabric?

Apart from specific restrictions that come with each type of font licensing, when it comes to the font files you are not allowed:

to modify, adapt, translate, reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble without the font’s owner prior written consent;

to resell or redistribute without authorization from the fonts’ owner;

You may, however, create any type of design, modify the vector outlines, create derivative works and visuals using the font itself.

Has anybody gotten in trouble for not following your font licensing rules?

We prefer to trust in the conscious compliance of our users and do not apply trackers to our fonts.

However, our legal team allocates a significant amount of time in verifying illegal font usage and pursuing cases on a global level.

Do I need separate font licenses for different uses?

Typically, yes. Each specific use corresponds to a different font license and in many cases, you would need at least a Desktop license to execute your personal and professional projects.

There are, however, custom font licenses tailored to a variety of client needs covering different font uses. Drop us a line at contact@fontfabric.com if this is your case.

Should I uninstall and reinstall my font license if I change computers?

Yes, you should uninstall and reinstall your font licenses when changing workstations.

Who needs a font license: me or the client?

Everyone who uses or installs our fonts needs to purchase a license. If a designer uses our fonts to create artwork for their client, the designer has to purchase a license.

If the client also needs to use the font for in-house work, they need to purchase a license too.

If you buy a license for more than one user, you and your client can share the same license.

However, your client wouldn’t need a font license if you convert your designs to outlines.

Can I send your retail fonts to my clients?

We advise that your clients obtain a font license themselves on their name.

Can I license your fonts to clients?

You can’t license our fonts to your clients, but you can, however, enter your client’s details when buying a font from us. That way, you’ll be purchasing a font license for them to use.

My company would like to modify some of the terms in your font license. Is this possible?

Yes, it’s possible to tailor our standard End-User License Agreement to fit your specific needs, but this will incur an additional administrative fee on top of the license fee.

Please contact us at contact@fontfabric.com to discuss further.

If I work with another graphic designer or a web designer do I have to buy additional font licenses for their computers so they can work with your fonts too?

Yes. Either purchase separate font licenses or a font license for the appropriate amount of users you want to share it with.

If I license one style now, do I have to pay for it again if I decide to license the complete family later?

If you’d like to update your license please drop us a message at contact@fotntfabric.com

What happens when you update one of your fonts?

Whenever we update our fonts you’ll be able to download the latest editions for free. They should be accessible from your profile on our website.

If you’re experiencing any difficulties downloading the latest font updates, please drop us a line at contact@fontfabric.com and we will send them over directly.

Do I need to renew my font license after you’ve updated a font?

No, you don’t. The font license you have purchased is valid for the fonts and their updated versions.

Is it OK to use your free fonts for designs, GIFs, and animations on social media?

Yes, as long as the designs are static. If you’re planning on using the fonts in videos you’ll need a Broadcasting license.

Can I embed your retail fonts in editable documents (Powerpoint, .pdf, etc.)?

Most commonly, you are not allowed to embed retail fonts in editable documents. By doing so you provide any third parties with the font, thus violating rights stated in the EULA.

You are allowed to send editable embedded documents only if the documents are created for in-house use or if they are sent to third parties working on behalf of you in accordance with our EULA.

You can send embedded documents to any other third parties only in a secure read-only non-editable format such as .pdf that doesn’t allow the extraction of the embedded font files.

Please refer to our commercial EULA for detailed information.

You should know that the EULA for our free fonts permits you to embed them in any document you send to third parties. Such documents may be viewed, printed, and edited by the recipients.

What kind of a font license do I need if I want to publish my work on streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, etc.?

You will need a Desktop license to publish your cover art on streaming services.

I work for/I am an owner of an NGO. Do your font licensing rules apply in my case?

Our font licensing agreements apply to all companies and organizations. NGOs make no exception. However, you can drop us a message at contact@fontfabric.com to discuss personalized terms and conditions.

Can I use a WOFF converter on Fontfabric fonts that don’t come with webfont files?

No, this is strictly prohibited.

Can I register a logo created with your fonts?

Yes.

What is a Desktop license?

A Desktop license allows you to install our fonts on your computer and use them in editing software such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, etc. Our Desktop licensing is based on the number of users (either a single person or a single device) that are going to work with the actual font.

What is a Desktop User?

Essentially, a Desktop User is a single person (or a single device) that uses a font.

How do I license the correct quantity?

When purchasing our fonts you’ll be prompted to select the number of users that need to work with them. The maximum number of simultaneous users is specified in the applicable Order Form. All users must belong to the same company or household purchasing our fonts.

Licensing additional users later?

Desktop licenses are cumulative. If you need a Desktop license for additional users after purchase, please drop us a message at contact@fontfabric.com

What can I do with a Desktop license?

✓ You can use our fonts within desktop applications such as TextEdit, Microsoft Word, Mac Pages, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, etc.

✓ You can use our fonts to create and distribute static images on any surface, including computer and TV screens, paper, and physical products in the following raster formats (JPEG, .TIFF, .PNG, etc.) and vector formats (EPS, SVG, etc.)

✓ You can use our fonts for the creation of non-editable PDF documents

Please read our Fontfabric Commercial EULA for Retail Fonts for details.

What are the restrictions on your Desktop font license?

⃠ You may not send editable documents embedding our fonts

⃠ You can send editable documents embedding the font software only if the documents are created for in-house use or if they are sent to Third Parties, working on your behalf in accordance with our Desktop license.

⃠ You may not send documents embedding our fonts to any other Third Parties if they’re not in a secure read-only non-editable format such as .PDF that does not permit the extraction of the embedded fonts

⃠ You may embed static images into an electronic document with a representation of a typeface so long as such images are not used as a replacement for the fonts.

⃠ You may not create or distribute to Third Parties any documents or graphics containing an embedded copy of our fonts with the entire or substantial part of the character set of the typeface design embodied in the font software.

⃠ You cannot use our fonts to create tangible products, which substantially rely on a font or font software for its commercial value (e.g. where the Font image may be repurposed by a User, such as a rubber stamp or an adhesive alphabet, or may not be repurposed by a User, but a principal characteristic of the products are the display of a sub-set of a font or its attributes; this limitation applies to but is not limited to Non-Fungible Tokens.)

⃠ You cannot use our fonts to create any kind of Electronic Publication, Apps, e-books, or used in TV Broadcastings or Movies.

Please read our Fontfabric Commercial EULA for Retail Fonts for details.

Can I create products to sell with your fonts?

As long as these products include only static designs you’ve made and you don’t let your clients design with the fonts themselves.

How do I install desktop fonts on my Windows PC or Mac?

The process is quite straightforward. Once you place your order and receive all font files you’ll proceed to install your fonts as usual.

Desktop fonts installation for Windows:

  2. Open the folder containing your Free fonts

How does a Webfont license work?

Webfont licenses allow you to install our fonts on a web server and embed them in the code for websites you own with no restrictions on the number of domains. Our Webfont licensing is based on the number of pageviews a website receives monthly.

What are pageviews? How do I measure them?

A simple definition for a page view can relate to a user viewing a web page on your website. You could also think of pageviews as requests to load a single page on a website, and therefore indicate the times that a font is served.

The best way to track unique pageviews is through Google Analytics.

How do I check how many pageviews my website receives so I can license the correct quantity?

Use Google Analytics to check your website’s monthly page views following the steps below:

  • Go to Audience > Overview
  • Select your desired date range
  • Have a look at the total number of pageviews

If your website is still in development and you don’t have visitors’ data yet, go with the lowest number of monthly pageviews and adjust your Webfont licensing later on.

Please contact us whenever you need to update your license.

Do you add a web tracker to your Web fonts?

We’ve made our Webfont licensing as easy as possible to use. No recurring fees, no trackers, no hassle.

What should I do once my website exceeds the monthly pageviews I’ve entered in the initial Webfont license?

If the total traffic of all websites, measured in pageviews per month, exceeds the one specified in the initial Webfont license for two consecutive months, you must update your license.

Please contact us directly to do that as fast as possible.

Where can I use your Web fonts?

Web fonts are only meant to be used in a web environment with the help of a little tag of CSS code usually referred to as @font-face. They are interpreted and rendered with the help of browsers or other apps dedicated to showing Internet content.

What are the restrictions of your Webfont license?

⃠ You may not use any conversion or editing tools on the Web fonts

⃠ You may not use the Web fonts for the following uses: desktop use, website templates distribution, product creation websites, mobile applications and games, e-books, digital ads, dynamic broadcasting on cable television or the Internet.

⃠ You are not allowed to create alphabet or letterform products based on the Font Software for resale

If you’re interested in any of the uses mentioned above please buy a separate license or contact us for a customized license for an additional fee.

How do I use your Web fonts?

Step 1: Upload the Font Files to your Site/Server

Where you do so is up to you, but we recommend either in the same folder as your .css file or perhaps in a folder titled ‘fonts’ and that folder should be in the same location as your .css file. Keeping these files close to your .css file makes it easier to map to them when you edit the CSS.

Step 2: Add the @font-face to Your CSS

Next, open up your CSS file. For every style you want to add, you’re going to create a separate @font-face selector in the CSS file. What this does is create the name of your font within the CSS file, so that when you use this font, it will know where to find the font files and allow your users’ browsers to load them and display them. Put the @font-face selectors at the top of the CSS file before any other CSS.

To declare the @font-face selector, you’ll specify the name of the family, the URLs of all of the different font files, and the weights and styles.

Step 3: Use the Font throughout your CSS

Now, you can simply use these fonts in any of your other CSS selectors.

How do I access OpenType features in Web fonts?

OpenType Features are available to use on the web via specific properties and low-level control properties — font-feature-settings. Learn how to use OpenType font features in CSS.

Style Linking

Style linking is a useful feature when working with a font family that has the four standard styles of Regular, Italic, Bold and Bold Italic. When a family is style-linked, we can refer to just one font name, “FamilyName”, instead of each individual font style like “FamilyNameBoldItalic”.

How does the App & Games license work?

The App & Games license lets you embed our fonts into an unlimited number of copies and subsequent versions of mobile applications and games and/or computer software applications and games that you own or control.

It’s based on the number of Monthly Active Users (“MAU”) of the App(s). If the App has no way of tracking those you may use “total downloads” as a metric.

What can I do with an App & Games license?

✓ You may only embed the Font Software into Apps that you own or control. The number of Monthly Active Users (“MAU”) of the App(s) cannot exceed the number specified in your license. If the App has no way of monitoring use you may use “total downloads” as a metric.

✓ You may port the App to any other platform or console (MacOS, Windows, Android, Linux, etc.).

✓ You have the right to subset or convert the Font Software format in order to improve the Font Software’s performance in the App.

How do I use your fonts with an App & Games license?

Embedding fonts in Apps generally involves adding each font file to your app’s assets folder and referencing the fonts by filename in your app’s resources file. Specific implementation varies by platform and device, so consult your platform’s technical documentation for details.

How do I license the correct quantity?

Make sure you check the number of Monthly Active Users (“MAU”) of your app(s) or use “total downloads” as a reference point. If the apps are still in development go with the lowest number of 25,000 MAU and contact us as the user base grows so we can update your license accordingly.

What are the restrictions of an App & Games license?

⃠ You may not redistribute the Font Software together with the App’s source code

⃠ You may not install the Font Software in the operating system on which the App runs

⃠ You may not embed the Font Software in an App that enables an end-user to create custom typesetting with the Font Software

⃠ You may not use the fonts under the App & Games license for the following uses: desktop use, website templates distribution, product creation websites, e-books, and digital ads.

⃠ You may not install the Font Software on servers, broadcast it on cable television or the Internet.

⃠ You are not allowed to create alphabet or letterform products based on the Font Software for resale.

If you’d like a license that covers any of the abovementioned uses you can either purchase separate ones or contact us for a personalized license for an additional fee.

I’ve exceeded the total app downloads I’ve entered in the initial App & Games license. What should I do?

Please contact us so we can update your license accordingly.

Do you add trackers to your fonts?

We’ve made our App & Games licensing as easy as possible to use. No recurring fees, no trackers, no additional steps. It’s your responsibility to monitor the app’s Monthly Active Users (or total downloads) and update your license as the user base grows.

Please contact us whenever you need a license update to make the process hassle-free.

How does an ePub license work?

You can use an ePub license to embed the font in electronic publications such as an eBook, eMagazine, eNewspaper, or interactive PDFs.

It’s based on the number of separate and distinct Electronic publications our fonts will be embedded in. Each issue of an Electronic publication counts as a separate Electronic Publication.

*Regional or format variations do not count as a separate Electronic Publication.

What am I permitted to do with your ePub license?

✓ You may embed our fonts into an Electronic Publication, including an Electronic Publication for commercial use, and distribute it worldwide to end-users in a secure manner that does not allow them to access the font software outside of the Electronic Publication

✓ You may embed the font software with a file format that protects the font software by means of encryption or obfuscation (safe formats: PDF, EPUB 2.01, EPUB3, KF8, etc.)

What are the restrictions of your ePub license?

⃠ The Electronic Publication must be a non-executable file that is displayed by e-reader software or on e-reader devices

⃠ The Font Software may not be installed on the operating system on which the Electronic Publication runs

⃠ This license does not cover the following uses: desktop use, website use, website templates distribution, product creation websites, and digital ads

⃠ You may not install the Font Software on servers, broadcast it on cable television or the Internet

If you’re interested in any of the uses mentioned above you can either purchase a separate license or contacts us for extended licensing for an additional fee.

How do I license the correct quantity under your ePub license?

The options we provide for our retail fonts include 1, 2, 3, 5, 12, and an Unlimited number of Electronic publications. For any different number of titles please reach out at contact@fontfabric.com

Please make sure you count each issue of your Electronic publication as a separate one and adjust your ePub license accordingly.

Do I need a new license if my publications get updates?

Yes, each update of your Electronic Publications counts as a separate Electronic Publication.

Adobe’s Desktop Publishing Suite (DPS)

For use within the digital magazine, each font would require an ePub license. Each issue of a digital magazine counts as a separate publication.

Can I test your fonts before I buy them?

Are fonts intellectual property?

Yes. Like art, music, or literary works, fonts are designed by real people and are protected by certain intellectual property rights. Beyond the design itself, fonts are software products, engineered with features and flexibility that enable good design and usability.

Does trademark law protect typefaces?

Trademark law protects only the name of a typeface, but not the design of the typeface.

Why is font licensing an ethical issue?

Font licensing is a contentious issue, made more confusing by intellectual property laws on typefaces. Basically, in the USA, font files are protected by copyright, but font renderings are not. In other words, it’s illegal to redistribute fonts, but it’s legal to “reverse-engineer” them by printing them out on graph paper and designing the curves to match the printout.

However, reverse engineered fonts are typically cheap and freely available but of poor quality. Perhaps one of the most offensive things about the nature of font piracy is that it artificially devalues the work of type designers, as there is no due credit given.

Has anyone ever actually gotten in trouble with font licensing?

We prefer to trust in the conscious compliance of our users and do not apply trackers to our fonts.

However, our legal team allocates a significant amount of time in verifying illegal font usage and pursuing cases on a global level.
