Font FAQs

Does the desktop license cover logo creation?

Yes! If you are creating logos for a third party or client, just be sure to outline the font before delivering to your client (using “Create Outlines,” etc.).

Does the desktop license cover t-shirt designs and physical products like album art, etc.?

Yes! Pretty much if it can be printed, it’s covered in the desktop license*. If designing for a client or third party, outline the font (using “create outlines” etc.) if delivering vector files of the design. If your client wants a copy of the font files, direct them to purchase their own license.

*Refer to Section 2a of the Desktop EULA below for exceptions.

How do I know how many “Users” I need to purchase for?

A“user” is a single person or a single machine within a single organization. So total the maximum number of devices the Font will be installed onto and purchase the license that covers that number of users.

I want to use a Font on my Youtube Channel or for a brand video. Does that require a Broadcast license? 

No. The Desktop license will cover Vimeo and Youtube (and like streaming sites for personal and brand user uploaded content). Broadcast licenses are for Television, cable TV, feature films, theatrical and cinema releases, and/or internet streaming and on demand content on streaming platforms (including Netflix, HBO Max, Hulu, Disney+, Paramount+, Peacock, and similar platforms).

I want to use a Hoodzpah Font as one of my brand fonts for application in print, decks to email to clients, and on my website. What license do I need?

You’ll need 2 licenses: the desktop license for the print materials and decks for email, and the web license to use the live .woff/.woff2 fonts in your website (via @font-face)

I want to use a font for social media graphics. Which license do I need?

The Desktop license covers this use case.

An extended license may be available for an additional fee.

Licensee can use Font on products where font is incorporated into words or phrases, for example a t-shirt that says “Howdy” or a sticker that says “Aloha”.

b. Users and Deployment: The maximum number of devices on which the fonts may be installed is the number of Desktop Users selected at the time of purchase and displayed on your email confirmation receipt and/or invoice.
