Maku has alternates.

Every glyph has multiple versions. When typing, the letters appear to be randomly displayed so there aren’t repeated letter shapes next to each other.


Maku has swashes.

Sometimes you will want to add extra flavor to your typography. Swash versions of all the main letters will give extra flair and spice to your designs. These can either be automatically or manually inserted as you wish.


Maku has special initial & final forms.

When you want something even more refined and elegant Maku’s initial and final shapes will dress up your text. These special forms can be automatically or manually added to give graceful decorations to the start and/or end of words.


Maku’s got dingbats!

Maku also features a whole collection of ‘dingbats’ – symbols, icons, and shapes of many common (and uncommon) ideas. These illustrations can be typeset alongside your text, or used alone at any scale to add fun graphic elements to your designs.

License FAQ


Commercial: This is for general use for most (offline) typesetting. The fonts may be used for just about any print application, including branding, logos, magazines, posters, etc.

Personal: This license is only for individuals who are using the fonts for their own private, non-commercial use. This generally means personal projects for school or home use with no direct or indirect connection to making money. This license is explicitly excluding any use on published materials, branding for business, or for anything with commercial intent.

Student: This discount is valid for current, full time students of any level. The student license remains valid even after graduation, and is allowed for commercial work, so you don’t need to worry about re-licensing later.



Our web fonts are distributed as WOFF, WOFF2, & EOT formats. They are licensed per domain and based on the traffic your website receives at the time of licensing. So, if you start out smaller then grow, there’s no need to update your license later. It’s also a one time fee so there are no annual or reoccurring costs.

< 100K pageviews/month: For websites with under 100,000 pageviews per month.

< 1M pageviews/month: For websites with 100,000 to 1 million pageviews per month.

App: This license is for embedding fonts into mobile or desktop applications. The license is valid on a per major version of your app. Meaning, the fonts are always allowed on smaller free updates to your app, but for more substantial paid updates an additional license must be purchased.

ePub: This license covers most digital publishing formats including EPUB, AZW, IBA, PDF, and others. The fonts are licensed on a per-title usage, but they may be used on any number of different file formats for the same title (meaning you can produce EPUB & PDF versions of the same title with the same license). Per-title means one specific book or one issue of a magazine, not a series. Additional titles can be purchased later for only a bit extra.
