Theresa’s Tips: Web FontFont licenses and how they work.

FontShop sells three different types of licenses: Desktop, Web, and Mobile. Here are some tips to help you with your Web FontFont purchase.

A license for a Web FontFont is based on the number of pageviews a single website has in a month, lets call them “pvm” for short. Once you place a web font into your cart, you can choose to purchase a license from three tiers: 500,000 pvm, 5 million pvm, or 50 million pvm. Please note that you can always extend your license to support additional pvm or request for a quote if you need to support more than 50 million pvm by contacting us.

Web FontFonts are licensed by the average pageviews per month of all the domains within the licensing organization.

All Web FontFonts come with three font files: Comp, EOT, and WOFF. The Comp file is an TrueType-flavored OpenType font that can only be used in the design phase of  website. A separate license is needed if you need to use the Comp files for any other purpose and the use of Comp files within a website is prohibited.
