Host your own fonts with no monthly fees.
Pay once, use forever.
All webfont licenses on MyFonts are perpetual and don’t require a subscription. There’s no monthly fee to use your fonts. Once you purchase the license, it’s yours.
In addition, webfonts you buy from MyFonts are self hosted. You don’t have to rely on an external service to keep your fonts working.
The vast majority of webfonts on MyFonts are licensed with a Pay-Once model. This means that you’ll pay one flat fee for your webfont license and never have to think of it again. The only time you’d be required to pay more is if your site traffic exceeds the monthly number of pageviews your license is set for.
Webfonts by Monotype, Linotype, and Ascender have a different licensing model. These foundries have elected to set their licenses as a Pay-As-You-Go model. You can think of Pay-As-You-Go as a bucket of pageviews. This means that you’ll buy a certain quantity of pageviews, and once that quantity has been used up, you’ll have to come back to add more views.
Once you’ve purchased the license, you’ll be able to customize and download a webfont kit that you’ll host on your own servers. This keeps you in control of the speed and uptime of your font resources.
Fonts with Webfont Licenses
A modern san serif typeface with a pure clean line form. The idea has been to design a font with a proportioned and balanced structure that is applicable to a wide variety of uses. Details include 8 weights with italics, 500 characters, Cyrillic lettering, 5 variations of numerals, manually edited kerning and Opentype features.
Having just finished a little bit of calligraphic studies, I was twenty years old when I made the first sketches of Exemplar in 1994. Inspired by the beauty and perfection of several typefaces and the art of calligraphy, I got started on my first attempts to create a new typeface. My goal was to create a typeface that was traditional yet unconventional, a balanced combination that felt both old and new. Respectful of the art of typography, I turned to history for inspiration and placed equal attention towards taking a step into the future. Two years later, the designs for both regular and italic versions were complete (that was at least what I thought at that time).
