This EULA authorizes you to use the Font Software only (I) to create certain “static” digital displays and printed materials, and (II) for limited “non-static” uses.
The following uses are expressly permitted under this Agreement (and all other use is prohibited, unless you have an addendum or another applicable license from us):
Permitted “Static” Use
This license grants you the limited, non-exclusive and non-transferable right to use the Font Software to create certain printed materials and “static” digital displays that are for use in connection with your own goods, services or business (and not for third parties), as identified below.
While this license permits you to create stationery, greeting or business cards, invitations to your organization’s (or your) own events, such as meetings, parties, reunions and weddings, you may not create stationery, greeting or business cards, invitations and other similar printed items for others’ use or for commercial sale. In order to obtain a license which would permit you to make customized stationery and printed materials for others’ use, please contact us.The term “static” means that the Font Software is used in a format that permits only the viewing or display of the text, and which does not permit editing. Printed materials are, by definition, “static,” but with respect to digital use, please note that while you may use the Font Software to create certain digital banners and logos, you may not “embed” the Font Software into any website, application, device, or other software, or create any form of "selectable" or "editable" or "live" type.
If you are a designer or otherwise use the Font Software to create artwork or text, you may provide it to unlicensed parties (including your client) only in (i) a static raster image format (e.g., a PNG, JPEG, GIF or TIFF) or (ii) a static vector image format such as SVG, or a properly embedded pdf provided that such format and/or file is “protected,” “subset embedded,” or “non-editable” for distribution on the Web or otherwise
Examples of permitted use include, but are not limited to, the following: print for use in and on physical printed publications, such as newspapers, newsletters, magazines, books or other paper publications or documents; your own point of sale displays (including without limitation promotional posters or playbills for your events, films, concerts and performances); your own signage; your own stationery (but not stationery for others’ use); physical album covers; promotional printed handouts; on product packaging for your own products (but not on any products themselves). You also are permitted to use the Font Software to create the following digital materials (so long as they are “static”, as defined above) to advertise, promote or describe your or your organization’s own business, such as banner ads, signage, logos and graphics.
Small Printer Exception
Vocal Type supports small businesses, and, notwithstanding the limitations set forth in Section D, below, owners of small print shops (defined as those having fewer than ten (10) full or part-time employees) may use the Font Software under this license to create and sell non-commercial printed products directly to individuals (such as wedding invitations, signs, neighborhood newsletters, and other non-commercial materials).
Third Party Recipients of Embedded Font Software
Most Third Parties Need a Separate License. If you want to send your client or any third party (apart from a commercial printer, as provided below) an embedded version of the Font Software or a copy of the software itself, your client or such third party will need to purchase its own license to use the Font Software. Similarly, if you are a company (or person) that hires a design studio to create a project for you, you are not permitted to share the Font Software – in embedded form or otherwise - with the design studio except in a static image/format, as described above, unless the design studio has separately licensed the Font Software from Vocal Type.
Limited Use for Printers. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this license permits your provision of a single copy of the Font Software to a commercial printer for purposes of printing any bona fide “permitted use” of the Font Software (i.e. on packaging, brochures, promotional posters, etc.), provided that the printer shall delete the single copy provided to it immediately after use for your print project/job. The printer, of course, may not duplicate or use the Font Software for any other purpose, without obtaining its own separate license.
