|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.
