Q: How does the licence work?

A: By buying the licence you only buy the right to use the fonts. The fonts themselves remain the exclusive property of LudwigType. The price of the licence depends on how many computers or devices the fonts will be installed, or, when ordering webfonts, on the average number of pageviews per month of a specific website. Please read our End User Licence Agreement for a detailed overview.

Q: Can I upgrade my licence?

A: Yes. An existing font licence can be extended to any number of users or pageviews. Please get in touch with us and provide your original order information and about the upgrade you wish to purchase. You can only upgrade licences you purchased with us directly. If you had purchased fonts from other distributors, we cannot offer that service.

Q: What is a Corporate Licence?

A: In certain situations, it makes more sense to purchase a Corporate Licence rather than a standard Multiple-User Licence. The Corporate Licence allows the installation and use of the fonts by an entire corporation or other legal entity, covering an unlimited number of users and locations. This licence is priced at 6,000 Euro per single style of an OpenType font. Optionally, you can cover affiliated third parties by extending this licence. To purchase a Corporate Licence, please contact us.

Q: Can I share a licence with my client?

A: Licences are not transferable. If your client wants to use the fonts as well he has to purchase a licence for his business.

Q: Can I embed fonts into PDF and Flash files?

A: Yes. Embedding of our fonts into documents is allowed in a secured read/print-only mode and as long as the document itself is not a commercial product. If you need to embed fonts that will not be in secured read/print-only environment and/or as the document itself is a commercial product, you must notify LudwigType to purchase an additional license.

Q: Can I use the fonts on a website?

A: Only our webfonts are allowed for use on websites. Uploading the desktop font data (OTF) to web servers is strictly prohibited, as well as the conversion of it to webfonts (EOT, WOFF, TTF). You are allowed to convert the desktop fonts to images (GIF, JPG, PNG) or use the fonts in Flash websites.

Q: Can I use the fonts in an App or eBook?

A: No. Please get in touch with us if you wish to use the fonts in an application, ebook, computer hardware (OEM), or other commercial product.

Q: Can I modify fonts?

A: We donʼt allow others to modify our fonts, but we are open to user requests and can customize our fonts for you for a reasonable fee. Please contact us for details.

Q: Where can I find the Licence Agreement?

A: You can find the link ‘View Licence Agreement’ on all order pages. You can also click here to view the Licence Agreement.
