General FAQ

Who buys the license?

Anyone who installs the fonts must hold a license. If you are purchasing the fonts for a client, you may use the fonts as long as they are used only for that client and the usage counts toward the purchased license.

Where are my fonts?

After completing your order, you will receive an email confirmation, and your fonts will be in “purchases” in your user account, where you can download all fonts that you have licensed.

Do you offer student discounts?

No, but we DO have trial fonts with limited character sets that are free to download and use for non-commercial purposes. That includes your student projects.

Desktop FAQ

Can I embed fonts in documents?

Yes! You may embed subset fonts in static documents such as PDFs. A separate license is required for ebook, app, OEM, game, or other kinds of embedding. Please email info@mckltype.com with any questions.

Webfont FAQ

Can I use fonts in development?

Yes! You may use licensed webfonts in development as long as the site is not open to the public, and reasonable attempts are made to protect the files.

Are sub / top-level domains included?

Yes! The MCKL webfont license allows for installation on subdomains and top-level domains, as long as the monthly visitors for all domains are included when calculating the license. For example, website.com, website.co.uk and shop.website.com would all count as one domain.
