Free fonts and personal usage

Are the fonts really free?

All of our fonts are free to try for personal use as long as it is not used in a commercial project. They all come with the complete glyph set and some selected key styles. You can use them in your portfolio (PDF, print or web!) and school project for examples.

What does personal use mean?

It means that you can use the font for anything of personal nature. For example but not limited to: Personal portfolios, Client pitches, personal projects, personal instagram (or any social media) posts, artistic projects with a small audience, testing in different Dev environnements, proofing, etc...

Font licensing

Who should buy the licenses, the client or the designer?

Anyone using the fonts needs a license. If only the designer has access to them, then they are the only ones who are required to purchase a license. If the client also needs to use them on their side, then both must own a license.

If the designer is creating something for a client, only the client needs to purchase the correct licenses.

How many licenses do I need to purchase?

Licenses are required for every use you intend to make.

For example if you need the font to be installed on 1 workstation and on 1 website with 10,000 pageviews per month, you will need, for every weight used, a desktop license for 1 workstation and a web license for up to 10k pageviews per month.

How many commercial projects are my licenses good for?

Just 1 project. Each new project requires a new license. For example 1 campaign, 1 website or 1 Event.

When do I need to upgrade my license?

When you expect to exceed what is covered by your current license, please contact us and we'll upgrade your license with the new coverage.

How much does it cost to upgrade my license?

It depends on the new usage but regardless of what that new coverage costs we will fully discount what was paid for the license prior to the upgrade.

When do I need the Print License?

The Print license (formerly Desktop license) is needed for any non-embedded material (except on social media and in a logo, see below) like printed art work, digital assets, apparel, album cover, etc... This license allows you to make unlimited copies of that specific project. The license coverage should reflect the total amount of worksations that will have the font installed.

Font file formats and web embedding

What is the font file format you deliver with a license purchase?

Every license purchase comes with the full set of widely adopted font formats: OTF, TTF, WOFF and WOFF2.

What CSS code should I use to embed the font on my website?

You can use the following CSS code to embed our font on a website. Replace the name "Pangram Pangram" with the font name you need to embed and insert the correct weight profile of that specific weight. Duplicate this block for each weight while keeping the font-family name the same for all.

@font-face {
   font-family: 'Pangram Pangram';
   src: url('PangramPangram.woff') format('truetype');
   font-weight: 100;
}

For a Variable font, use the following CSS code. For an italic Variable font, use italic instead of normal in the font-style parameter.

@font-face {
   font-family: 'Pangram Pangram';
   src: url('PangramPangram-Variable.ttf') format('truetype');
   font-weight: 100 900;
   font-display: swap;
   font-style: normal;
}

How do I access the Stylistic Alternates of the font on my website using CSS?

You can use the following CSS code to access the stylistic alternates and other Open Type features of our font on a website.

For example, to access the stylistic set .ss01 use the code below.

.class {
   -moz-font-feature-settings: "ss01";
