Licensing FAQ

WHAT'S ALL THIS LICENSING STUFF ABOUT? I THOUGHT I WAS JUST BUYING SOFTWARE.
When you buy software from anywhere, you’re not buying the software at all but really the license to use the software on your computer. With every item you purchase and download, the terms of that license (or EULA) you agree to before purchasing are also downloaded with the software and you can read about any restrictions on use for that software. You can read our entire license agreement here.

HOW MANY COMPUTERS CAN I INSTALL MY NEW SOFTWARE ON?
You’re allowed to install the fonts on up to two computers per user so long as they aren’t in use at the same time by different users.

I WANT TO BUY SOFTWARE FOR MORE THAN JUST ME, HOW DO I DO THIS?
By default, we only sell our software per End User, but should you need to purchase for more than yourself, simply contact us for a custom quote.

Yes! That said, if you plan to use the logo for broadcast in any media, reproduce it on over 250k physical items or embed it in a digital software application or for a large volume use, a license upgrade will likely be required. You can read all about logo uses in our license and if you don’t see your specific logo use defined in the license, please drop us a line!
