Licensing Options

You can use this font in any of the following places. Read the full EULA text for details about each license. If you have a usage in mind that's not covered by these licenses, contact us and we'll see what we can do.

Desktop: for use on a desktop workstation

For the most common uses, both personal and professional, for use in desktop applications with a font menu.

For example:

  • Install the font on your Mac OS X or Windows system
  • Use the font within desktop applications such as Microsoft Word, Mac Pages, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, etc.
  • Create and print documents, as well as static images (.jpeg, .tiff, .png)

Desktop licenses are based on the number of users of the fonts. You can change the number of users by clicking the quantity dropdown option on Buying Choices or Cart pages.

Please be sure to review the listing foundry's Desktop license agreement as some restrictions may apply—such as use in logos/trademarks, geographic restrictions (number of locations), and products that will be sold.

Adding users later:

Desktop licenses are cumulative. If you require a Desktop license that covers additional users, simply place a new order for the same Desktop package, for the number of additional users.

Allatuq Desktop EULA

Webfont: for your website

Webfonts can be used on a single domain. Agencies responsible for multiple websites, for example web design agencies or hosting providers, may not share a single webfont license across multiple websites.

Every time the webpage using the webfont kit is loaded (i.e, the webfont kit CSS which holds the @font-face rule is called) the counting system counts a single pageview for each webfont within the webfont kit.

For usage in graphic images shown on the website, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow for it.

This font's webfont license is:


You get a total number of prepaid pageviews that can be used over time. This means that you will pre-pay for a number of pageviews, then you'll have to come back to order more after your site has been viewed that number of times.

For example, if you order 250,000 page views, when your webpages using the webfonts have been viewed 250,000 times, you will need to buy the webfont package again for an additional number of prepaid pageviews.

App: for embedding in mobile applications

Select this license type when you are developing an app for iOS, Android, or Windows Phone, and you will be embedding the font file in your mobile application's code.

Allatuq App EULA

Electronic Doc: for embedding in e-text products

You can use an Electronic Doc license to embed the font in an electronic publication such as an eBook, eMagazine, eNewspaper, or interactive PDF.

An Electronic Doc license is based on the number of publications in which the font is used. Each issue counts as a separate publication. Regional or format variations don't count as separate publications.

Updated versions of publications that are free to previous customers do not need a new license; otherwise, each new version that is released counts as a separate publication.

For font usage in graphic images shown as the ePub cover, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow for it.

About Allatuq Font Family

In 1997 the first designs of Allatuq were made while Michael Everson was doing some work with the Baffin Divisional Board of Education in what is now Nunavut (but was still Northwest Territories then). The font contained The basic Latin ASCII characters and what Inuktitut characters were able to be fit into an 8-bit "MacInuit" character set Michael had developed. "Allatuq" means "What has been written" in the dialect of Inuktitut spoken in northern Québec. The font is to look hand-drawn, as though by a child copying more or less carefully from a handwriting sampler. Although Comic Sans came out in 1994, and Allatuq designed in 1997 (the 1.0 release was Patrick's Day 1998), Michael doubts that he had even heard of Comic Sans when he was was designing Allatuq. When the opportunity came to revise the font for the Kativik School Board in Québec, Michael decided it would be best to re-draw everything from scratch. And... well, being a Unicode guru, he decided to add support for more characters. Allatuq contains a fairly large set of Latin characters, including the IPA block. It supports the entire set of Canadian Syllabics, Greek, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Cherokee, Armenian, and Georgian. Further additions are planned. In 2010 Allatuq version 2.1 was released in OpenType format, completely compliant with Unicode encoding and with an extended character set. In 2012 Allatuq version 3.0 was released with an oblique face. Allatuq is pronounced [ˈalːatʊq] in Inuktitut, and [ˈæləˌtʊk] in English.
