Buyer’s Guide 101

With the New Year comes new questions … or the same ones. Below is our list of the best Buyer’s Guide tips we have for any type enthusiasts and designers out there who want to license fonts during their winter break or anyone who’s missed our previous Buyer’s Guide tips:

1. Font Formats
Double check the fonts in your cart before licensing them to make sure you have the format you need or the format that has the best compatibility with the system or programs you’re running!

2. What is EOT and WOFF?
Increase your understanding of the web formats available before licensing fonts for the web.

3. Can All Webfonts Be Linked To Typekit?
You’ve learned the difference between desktop licensing and web licensing and have decided you need to purchase some webfonts. If you have a Typekit account, read this Buyer’s Guide tip to make sure if the webfonts you want can be linked to your Typekit account or not.

4. Buying Fonts For Others
Still haven’t gotten gifts for a few people on your list? Don’t worry, you can buy fonts for them — that way, you won’t have to deal with getting out of your pajamas and trying to find parking in crowded shopping lots the day before Christmas.

If you have any other questions about buying fonts, you can view our Buyer’s Guide posts or our Help Topic forums.
