I would like to know which font license I should buy for use in a company logo? I am going to use the logo in my web application, in advertisements and everywhere the company logo appears.

You'd typically buy the standard license. With a few exceptions, most commercial fonts allow you to use it as you see fit. If there is an exception, you'll see it in the license.

Do note, however, that the font you decide to use for your logo is not typically also used for everything else. That's not a hard and fast rule, but typical.

  • What if there is no standard license available for that font and still I want to use it for company logo?

  • @JavaTechnical Do you have a specific Font in mind? Most all fonts come with a license.

  • For example, see this.. myfonts.com/fonts/fontbureau/interstate There is no standard license. Here, which one should I use?

  • @JavaTechnical The license is listed on the page you linked to: myfonts.com/fonts/fontbureau/interstate/licensing.html that is the standard license for that font.

    @JavaTechnical to create a logo, you buy one license...for the designer that's creating the logo. They will convert it into an image so other's won't need a license to see the logo.
