HypeForType Desktop License


If in doubt, chances are that you need a desktop license… or at least our statistics tell us so as it’s the most common license purchased. If you want to design a logo for someone this is the license you need. Likewise if you want to see products with the font on them, like mugs and diaries, this is the license you want. However, please remember you cannot sell a product where the font is the main selling point with this license though, for that you’ll need a merchandise license. Nor can you use this font to embed in eBooks, games, websites, etc. Our Desktop license is for us on five (5) devices owned by the same entity or individual. If in doubt, give us a shout...
