Font Licensing Overview
Monotype is pleased to offer a variety of font licenses to meet the needs of our diverse base of customers.
Fonts sold on Monotype's websites are licensed for use on personal computers. The End User License Agreement (EULA) defines the number of personal computers that are permitted to use a font. This is typically 5 (five) workstations. The EULA defines how you can use the fonts, and restrictions of use.
Monotype offers a variety of extended use licenses to meet the needs of its customers who want to use the fonts beyond the terms granted in the EULA:
Multi-Workstation Font License
When you purchase a font at the Ascenderfonts.com font store you can purchase a multi-workstation license for up to 200 computers. If you need more than that, just let us know the specific quantity of personal computers you desire a license for and we can provide you with a custom quote.
Enterprise-Wide Font License
Similar to Multi-Workstation Licenses, Monotype can accommodate the needs of enterprises that require a global font license.
Contact Monotype to inquire about an Enterprise-wide font license.
Application Server Font License
This allows the fonts to be installed onto servers for use with an application that is accessed by an unlimited number of users. Two options are offered:
- Internal Use (i.e. an Intranet within an entity)
- External Use (i.e. for Internet-based applications)
Our application server license is structured to make it affordable to add high quality fonts, and scales as you add more servers to support your application.
Contact Monotype to inquire about an Application Server License.
Web Fonts License
This license allows fonts to be used on web servers for use in formatting web pages using the CSS @font-face. Learn more about Web Fonts.
