So you don’t end up sleeping with the fishes, we would be thankful if your company obtains the proper site licenses for the use of our fonts.

Our monk’s work is truly a labour of love, but this business is also our livelihood. We’ll help you understand the licence agreement, so that you’ll be able to pick the right site license, and get the most out of our typefaces. Only with your support can Type Mafia continue to design great typefaces!

The non-exclusive, nontransferable license is a legal contract between you, the purchaser, and Type Mafia. When you purchase, you’re actually licensing the use of software – you are expressly not owning the typeface, its copyrights or trademarks as that is and remains the exclusive property of Type Mafia. For that reason the right to use Type Mafia’s font software is restricted under a particular set of conditions. It is important that you read and understand this agreement because it defines your rights, the acceptable uses of our fonts, and the rights Type Mafia reserves.

Once you download and/or install and/or use the Type Mafia Fonts, you are confirming you understand and agree to the terms of this Agreement, and that you have the authority to bind the person or entity specified on your sales receipt to the terms of this Agreement. Upon payment in full, Type Mafia grants to you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use our Fonts under the following terms and conditions. If you don’t agree: don’t download, install or use the fonts.

1. Use of Font Software and Restrictions

1.1 Installation

The Font may be installed and used on the number of workstation computers owned by the same entity or individual, either desktops or laptops, as identified in your sales receipt.

The Font Software may be used with any number of output devices per licensed computer. However, the Font Software may not be installed or used with any device that displays a reproduction or facsimile of the Font Software or the designs embodied in the Font Software.

Any such installation or use requires the purchase of a special licence.

1.3 Service Bureau/Printer Use
