WOBURN, Mass. – January 25, 2016 — Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc., a leading provider of typefaces, technology and expertise for creative applications and consumer devices, today introduced the Monotype® Library Subscription and the Monotype Enterprise License: two new services that make it easier for customers, ranging from freelancers to large enterprises, to work with some of the world’s most popular typefaces. The Monotype Library Subscription, available today on Fonts.com and MyFonts, provides customers like freelance designers and small creative agencies with the ability to license typefaces from the Monotype Library for desktop use at an introductory price of just $14.99 USD per month or $119.99 USD per year. The Monotype Enterprise License enables enterprise customers to license any typeface from the Monotype Library for use across their entire organization including desktops, websites and mobile apps, among others, for a single annual fee. Now, all Monotype customers can work with more than 9,000 fonts (2,200 font families) without having to navigate some of the complexities often associated with font licensing.
“Customers like freelance designers and small agencies enjoy the flexibility, predictability and creative palette that subscription models offer,” said Brett Zucker, senior vice president of product management at Monotype. “The Monotype Library Subscription is perfect for these customers, who need a large library of premium type for their projects, but at a low monthly cost. We’re providing them with instant access to some of the world’s most popular typefaces, as soon and as often as they need it.”
The Monotype Library features popular designs like the Frutiger®, Helvetica®, ITC Avant Garde Gothic®, Metro® Nova and Neue Haas Unica™ typeface families, among others, and includes additions of new typefaces throughout the year.
“We have to rapidly respond to client needs, and those needs change from job to job,” said Daniel Cheade a freelance designer and educator at Milton Keynes in the UK. “The Monotype Library Subscription takes the pain and expense out of font licensing and provides us with a deep and well-respected library of typefaces to work with. This allows us a tremendous amount of flexibility and doesn’t let the licensing become a hurdle for the creative work we do. Designers everywhere are going to go crazy for this.”
The new Monotype Enterprise License is a simple, flexible license that enables large teams to use fonts across the entire organization, or any customer touchpoint including desktop, Web, apps and others — for a single, annual fee. This is ideal for large brands that need extensive rights to a single typeface to comply with brand mandates. Pricing is customized based on specific customer needs.
