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.

Jackpot 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:

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.

About Jackpot Font Family


What happens when you mix a groovy hippy font idea (like Canada Type's Janice for instance) with a Western concept such as Playbill? You end up with a groovy hippy western font, of course! The idea is not new. It was quite common, but hardly ever used, in film type in the 1960s and 1970s. It is however, as far as we can tell, unique to digital type. The idea for Jackpot came from a photo type called Cooper Playbill, which as the name implies was simply a westernized version of Cooper Black. It is strange that the font designers of the 1980s and 1990s never found the attraction of such a concept. We think it's simply marvelous and quite ideal for communicating special great American times and ideas. The recipe was simple: Follow Mr. Cooper's big fat hippy idea, cowboy it with heavy slabs, give it true italics, then swash away at both for beautiful mixture. And there you have the bridge between groovy and all-American. There you have the country lover shaking hands with the rock and roll enthusiast. There you have your perfect substitute for the very overused Cooper Black. We like to think of Jackpot as "free love with a holster". Please don't ask us what this means. We could hardly explain it to ourselves. Eight year old Benjamin thought the swashes we made looked very "sweeping", like someone using a broom, so we called them Jackpot Sweep instead of Jackpot Swash. Benjamin approves, we're hoping. The Jackpot family is ideal for posters, signage, book covers, magazine ads, and plenty of other applications. If you're creative and know how to use your imagination, you have just hit the Jackpot with this font family. Open Type enthusiasts should be very happy to know that the OT version of Jackpot comes in two fully-featured fonts, where the sweeps, alternates, ligatures, etcetera are stashed away in features for activation at the click of a button.
