Standard Desktop License

A Standard Desktop License permits installation of fonts on a computer and using them in desktop applications like Photoshop, InDesign, or MS Word. The license is perpetual and paid with a one-off payment. It is the most common license and covers most commercial font usage.

  • You can create graphical designs and products for yourself, or your client. Products may be sold for profit as long as the letters are not the main selling point of your product (like wooden letters or sticker set).
  • This license is limited by “users,” usually the total number of people using the font.
  • Embedding fonts is not allowed with this license with a few exceptions (print files or reports). All licenses on our site are perpetual, which means you pay once and use it forever.

Embedding licenses for websites, apps, ebooks, and more are available from Paavola Type Studio.
