Font Licensing | TYPEHEIST


How does font licensing work?

When you purchase a font, you are essentially purchasing the right to use that font for a specific use, for example: on a website, in an eBook or on packaging etc.


  • Use the licensed font for personal and commercial purposes, under the allowances of each license
  • Purchase an additional license if you need to use the font for other applications or your pageviews exceed your existing license
  • Get in contact about High Volume Commercial or Broadcast/Streaming licenses.

Do not:

  • Resell the original fonts (unless purchasing for a client)
  • Resell any modification of the asset on its own
  • Make the font public or share the font in any way that allows others to download, extract, or redistribute
  • Convert font files to other formats
  • Use the font for purposes outside of your license

Upon purchasing a font you are granted a non-exclusive and non-transferable license to use the TYPEHEIST font(s) in accordance with the following licensing terms and conditions. You may not exceed the scope of the purchased license.
