1. LICENSE Comicraft is the exclusive owner of the electronically transferred computer lettering fonts. We grant you, and you accept, a non-exclusive license to use the electronically transferred fonts, but you are not the owner of them. Your right to use the fonts under this license agreement is called the license. By fonts, we refer to the electronically transferred fonts and any embodiment or use that you make of the fonts in any form.

2. AUTHORIZED USER AND USE You alone, as the purchaser of the fonts, are authorized to use the fonts under the license for personal, business or distributed projects. With few exceptions: fonts are licensed for use on 5 CPUs and/or 1 output device. Additional licenses are available on a ratio of 5 CPUs to 1 output device. Call or e-mail us if you are not clear on whether you require additional licenses. Any other duplication or use by any other person or entity constitutes software piracy, a criminal offense.

3. LIMITED WARRANTY Comicraft makes no warranties, express or implied, regarding the electronically transferred computer software, its merchantability or its fitness for any particular purpose.

These fonts are sold for use only on the computer platforms indicated. Use of these fonts on any platform other than that for which it was originally intended is not recommended and invalidates any warranty.

Comicraft reserves the right to terminate this License at any time and void your license if you fail to comply with the terms and conditions of this License.

eBook License

5x the regular purchase price

An eBook License permits embedding of the font(s) into an electronically published book (ePub, PDF or similar) with static font display. Unlimited distribution of the publication is permitted, so long as the font file(s) themselves are not directly accessible.

An eBook license is not required if the text is converted to vector outlines or pixel-based images (such as JPG, GIF, TIF or PNG) before embedding.

If your book permits the user to edit or interact with text generated by this font, please see the Interactive License below.

Interactive License

10x the regular purchase price

An Interactive License permits embedding of the font(s) into a video game or app for dynamic text generation. Unlimited distribution of the game or app is permitted, so long as the font file(s) themselves are not directly accessible.

During checkout, please include your Company Name and the name of the application in the Comments field. You will be able to download the font files immediately, and we will e-mail the completed Interactive License to you within 24 hours.

If you have questions about these License Agreements, or how they apply to your particular situation, please check our FAQ. If your question isn't answered there, please contact us via email, or call (310) 650-7904 Monday-Friday 9-5 PST.

By purchasing a font, how am I entitled to use it?
  Purchase of a font grants you a license to use it for personal, business or distributed projects on up to five (5) computers. See above for our full license agreement. Basically, as long as the font files themselves stay on your computer(s), and/or the fonts are not editable or useable via a website or some other interactive experience, you can use them for whatever projects you like!

For print output in Illustrator, we recommend you "Create outlines" on the final files you deliver, which converts the lettering to vector outlines so the font files do not need to be included for output. If a publisher or editor wants to make changes on their end, or use the fonts for any other purpose, please direct them here to purchase their own license.

If you need to install the fonts on more than five computers, you may obtain additional licenses at a substantial discount. The discount structure is visible by clicking the orange "View Quantity Discounts" box on any font page.
Can I use the fonts in a comic book? Do I need to credit you?
  As long as the font files remain on your computer, you can publish whatever you like with them. See above about "creating outlines" before delivering files to your printer.

You are not required to credit us, but it's certainly appreciated! A link to ComicBookFonts.com is always welcome, too. As well as chocolate. Dark.
Can I use the fonts on my website and/or webcomic?
  Our fonts can be used to create JPG, GIF, PNG or any other type of static, pixel- or vector-based graphics. You may also embed them in Flash (.swf) files, as long as the content is not editable by the site visitor.

If you wish to embed our fonts in your website using @font-face, you may purchase a Webfont license for any of our fonts at MyFonts.com.

If you wish to embed our fonts in a video game, app, or other digital content that generates text dynamically, please see below.
Can I embed your fonts into a video game or mobile phone app?
  You may create static, pixel-based graphics for your game or app under our Standard License. However, for embedded uses, where text is generated dynamically and/or controlled by the end user, an Interactive User License is required. This is available for each of our fonts in the "Options" box near the bottom of the page. The cost is 10x the regular price of the font, and this allows for an unlimited number of downloads within a single app, as long as the font files themselves are not directly accessible.

Please provide the name of the product (tentative name is OK) in the "Comments" field when you make your purchase, and we will email the Interactive License document within 24 hours.

If you have any questions or special requests, please contact us.
