How does font licensing work?

Purchasing the appropriate Multi-User License at HypeForType is straight forward and easy. After you add the font(s) to your shopping cart, you’ll be asked for the total number of CPUs (users) in your office. Select the appropriate quantity and download the font(s) you require. For larger Multi-User Licenses it is always best to drop us an email with your appropriate request.

What if my requirements are bespoke?

Not exactly sure what your particular licensing requirements or needs are? No problem! We have a friendly, knowledgeable team of experts on staff waiting to assist you with your licensing questions. We have helped organisations, companies, and even celebrities with their unique licensing requirements. We can also make sure all fonts in your existing library are properly licensed from their respective foundries, whether we actually sell them or not. Contact us for details, we are here to help you.

Do you license fonts for the web?

We do not currently offer any CSS or Web font licensing for installing or embedding fonts into websites.

The license I require may be out of budget?

When it comes to large Multi-User licenses for broadcast or international use, many clients find that the licensing cost is too expensive. So, as an alternative solution we offer full custom type design services. We find that our type services suit our clients budgets, and also provide them with a unique typeface to represent there company, or brand. We have already designed custom typefaces for some of the largest brands, companies, and design studios. Please get in touch with your request, and we will contact you in due course.

General licensing information

The basic license most for most foundries is typically for 1-5 CPUs (users). Online ordering makes Multi-User licensing easy. Simply input the amount of users you require, and our system will calculate the final price for you. As mentioned above if you require an extensive Multi-User license then please contact us directly for more information. By paying the full sale price for our foundries fonts, HypeForType grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to operate its font software (the typefaces) on a fixed number of computers at a single location, as indicated on your invoice. You agree not to duplicate, reproduce, sell, transfer, license, or other distribute the typefaces in any form, except as provided herein. You agree not to decompile, modify, reformat, translate, reverse-engineer or otherwise discover the source code of the typefaces. You agree not to make, or authorise or commission others to make any additions, deletions or modifications to the typefaces without prior written consent of the foundry. You agree not to alter the foundries copyright notices as contained in the typefaces. Any manipulation, violation of use, or font pirating activity will be taken further. We have already taken legal action against users pirating our catalogue of fonts, and we will not hesitate in taking action again against any party in doing so.
