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 any Fontfabric Fonts (Software) are displayed.

On our website, we aim to include images of Fontfabric Fonts (Software) 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.

You get a “Font is not valid” message on Windows and can’t add your font to my Fonts folder. How can you 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 Fontfabric Licenses offered, along with any rules and limits you, as the Licensee (and your client when working for hire), are bound to follow.

There are two types of Fontfabric 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:

 

For custom “FF EULA”, submit a Licensing Request or reach Fontfabric directly at contact@fontfabric.com.

How does Fontfabric licensing work?

Learn more from our guide on Fontfabric Licensing.

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.

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.

Learn all details from our guide on Fontfabric Licensing.

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 FF 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 Fontfabric Commercial EULA For Retail Fonts.

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 Fontfabric Commercial EULA For Retail Fonts for detailed information.

You should know that the Fontfabric Commercial EULA For Free Fonts permits a Licensee to embed Fontfabric Fonts (Software) in any document you send to third parties. Such documents may be viewed, printed, and edited by the recipients.

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.

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:

  1. Open the Control Panel by using the Search bar in the Start menu and choose “Fonts”
  2. Open the folder containing your Free fonts
  3. Select the font files you want to install
  4. Drag them to “Fonts” and drop them anywhere

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.

How do I use Fontfabric 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”.

Can I test your fonts before I buy them?

What is a Font Tester?
