Our online font testers do a nice job at previewing our fonts in a browser. But this can neither fully recreate how you might use fonts in a page layout app, nor does it allow you to easily see the fonts in print.

To help let you examine our typefaces even closer, we are offering Free Trial versions of fonts from all of our families. These can be downloaded, installed, and used on your personal computer for testing purposes. The full license agreement can be found below, but here is a summary of the highlights:

Allowed Uses

  • Testing & evaluating the fonts before making a purchase. You may use them as you see fit, and make printouts, but only for testing purposes.
  • Students may use the Trial Fonts on school or personal projects while they are enrolled. Students may also purchase full licenses for a 70% discount – and these fonts may be used on commercial projects – even after graduation.

Not Allowed

  • Using the Trial Fonts in any commercial work.
  • Uploading the Trial Fonts anywhere online – these are only for desktop (offline) testing.
  • Redistributing or sharing the fonts with others. (But you can point them to this page to get their own copies.)

These Trial Fonts are heavily subset and contain only a very basic character set. While this won’t allow trying of the many special features our fonts have to offer, it will still help to get a taste of what they are like.

Please read our Trial Fonts EULA before downloading the fonts.
