Licensing Explainer

A Licence gives you a specific right to use a typeface. The Licence defines how and on which medium a font can be used. These rules are defined in the Licence Agreement.

We strive to keep things simple and fair. That’s why all our licenses are valid for an unlimited time (no recurring fees) worldwide.

When you purchase a license, you acquire the right to use a font, not the font itself. A license is always held by an individual, organisation, or company. This entity becomes the Licence Holder. The Licence Holder remains the same and cannot be changed.

Luzi Type offers three kinds of licences: Desktop Licence, Web Licence, and App Licence. You can download the complete Licence Agreements → .

Desktop Licence

A Desktop Licence is a versatile license that covers production, office, and social media usage. With a Desktop Licence, you can use a typeface on your computer within programs like Microsoft Word, Adobe Illustrator, or Figma. You are allowed to create pixel images, vector images, as well as videos, and distribute these creations without limitations everywhere. You can produce this output for yourself as well as for others without any restrictions.

Here is a list of what you can do with a Desktop Font:
— Design unlimited output for yourself and others
— Unlimited production and distribution of logotypes
— Unlimited production and distribution of images
— Unlimited production and distribution of PDFs and ePubs
— Unlimited production and distribution of videos and movies
— Unlimited production and distribution of all kinds of print products
— Unlimited production and distribution of any 3D objects
— Unlimited production and distribution of any outdoor advertising
— Unlimited production and distribution of TV shows and TV ads
— Convert to outlines and change forms (e.g., in Illustrator)


A desktop font can only be used by you. You can produce designs with the desktop font for others; for example, design business cards for a client. However, you cannot share the font file with a customer or others. You can help your customer purchase a license. → Here is how.

Web Licence

The Web Licence allows you to use the typeface on your website.

The cost of a Web Licence is calculated based on the number of monthly page views. A single page view is one request for displaying a page of your website. The number of monthly page views includes all requests made on your websites within one month. Please find more information about page views in our notes entry → here.

You can use your Web Licence for an unlimited number of domains belonging to your organization (like www.name.com), as long as your license covers the total number of page views across all your usage.

If, after purchasing, your websites receive more visits than the number of page views stated on your invoice, you need to upgrade your Web Licence. We only charge the additional cost to bring you up to the next page view level.

If your website produces documents (such as PDFs), you need to purchase an additional Desktop Licence (your website counts as one computer).

In addition to use on your website, you can also use the Web Fonts in dynamic web-based advertising (HTML5 Ad) and email marketing, as long as your license covers the total number of monthly page views across all your usage.

A developer can help build your website. This developer can upload the web font to a non-public server like a private GitHub repository and build the website in this environment.

App Licence

With an App Licence, you can embed app fonts in applications such as Android or iOS apps. One license covers a single app functionally equivalent across multiple operating systems (e.g., for iOS, Android, MS Windows).

The App Licence has no download or time limits. In other words, if you want to build an app, just purchase an App Licence.

An app developer can help build your app. This developer can upload the app font to a non-public server like a private GitHub repository and build the app in this environment.
