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.

Classic Sans Desktop EULA

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.

Classic Sans App EULA

Digital Ad/Email: for use in HTML5 ads

You can use this type of license to embed fonts into digital ads, such as ads built using HTML5.

We'll supply a kit containing webfonts that can be used within digital ads, such as banner ads. This kit may be shared with third parties who are working on your behalf to produce the ad creatives, however you are wholly responsible for it.

HTML5 ads use webfonts, so why purchase a Digital Ads license rather than a Webfont license?

There are a few reasons, such as the Digital Ads EULA having terms that enable usage in digital ads and on advertising networks.

Digital advertisements also have different usage patterns compared to websites. Most websites generally have consistent pageviews month-to-month whereas advertising impressions can vary wildly month-to-month. Prices reflect this, making it much less expensive to use a Digital Ad license.

If you know the number of impressions the campaign requires, that amount can be ordered before the campaign begins. For campaigns where number impressions is unknown until the end of the campaign, you can true up at the end of each calendar month.

Classic Sans Digital Ad/Email 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:

Annual

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.

Classic Sans WebFont 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 Classic Sans Font Family


»Classic Sans« is the Mother of all »Sans« typefaces. Around 1880 Ferdinand Theinhardt designed this Grotesk for use in scientific publications. By designing his font for the »Royal-Prussian-Academy of Sciences in Berlin« Ferdinand Theinhardt received immediate acceptance and appraisal for his new typeface. His own foundry »Theinhardt Schriftgiesserei« published four weights. Five years later he sold his foundry to the »Brothers Mosig and Oskar Mommen«. In 1908 »Mosig and Mommen« was sold again. Check Wikipedia for details under Theinhardt. In those days letters had to have serifs in order to be real typefaces. »Sans« typefaces of that time were not accepted as »real typefaces«, they were something »weird«. In German weird translates to »grotesk«! The font was used for »Accidentien« (small typesetting jobs), like leaflets, business cards, letterheads and so on. It was a weird font for small jobs. Last year in Berlin I found some type-samples of Theinhardts Grotesk in Erik Spiekermanns extensive library and was instantly dedicated to revive the original typeface with most of its inconsistencies. I added some weights and corresponding italic cuts with a light slant. I designed small-caps, all kinds of numbers as well as ligatures and currency symbols, I also added the necessary diacritics in order to make the typeface usable for most latin-writing languages. Classic Sans 12-Pack contains the following cuts: XLight and XLight-Italic, Light and Light-Italic, Medium and Medium-Italic, Roman and Roman-Italic, Bold and Bold-Italic as well as Black and Black-Italic. The Medium weight is lighter than the Roman and can be used to typeset a lighter but sturdy body-copy. This packet is most useful for all kinds of jobs and will never let you down in terms of elegance and usability. It is a very good offer at the low »12-Pack« price. Enjoy this original font!
