How Font Licensing Works

  • In general, fonts are downloaded, then link to the files in your stylesheet.
  • Every font has a license - some are free and some are paid.
  • Find the author of the font and read the license agreement.
  • Desktop - you download files to your sole machine.
  • Website - used for website, print, etc.
  • Follow the licensing rules because it’s the right thing to do and it’s the law.
  • Make sure you give creator credit in the stylesheet by linking to their page/fonts/licensing.
