What characters do the Trial Fonts include?

KOMETA Trial Fonts only ship with a basic set of uppercase & lowercase characters (no diacritics), proportional figures and a limited set of punctuation. A simplified preview of OpenType features is also included. For all features and the language support of the retail version, see 3.1.


Can I use KOMETA Trial Fonts in a student project?

While the Trial Fonts are primarily intended for internal evaluation only, personal non-commercial use is not explicitly prohibited. As long as the limited character set proves sufficient for your school project, feel free to use the Trial Fonts—just make sure to credit us appropriately.

2 Licensing


Who should obtain a license—designer or client?

You can purchase a license for yourself or—usually in the case of working as an external designer—on the behalf of your client. Unless you are using the Licensed Fonts for your own business, it is always the End User (i.e. whom the Licensed Fonts are used for) that needs to own the Font License; clearly specified as Licensee during Checkout.


Can I use the Licensed Fonts to create a logotype?

The Desktop License covers use in logotypes for small companies with up to 10 employees—make sure to convert the font into outlines as sharing the font outside the Licensee organisation is not allowed. If you need a license for a larger company, please get in touch with the number of employees for a price quote.


Can I use the Licensed Fonts on social media?

Use across social media is governed by the Desktop License. The first 10,000 followers are covered for free—if you need a larger Social Media License, please get in touch with the number of followers for a price quote.


Can I use the Licensed Fonts to create videos?

Using our fonts in videos is governed by the Video License; included for free with all Desktop Licenses for small companies with up to 10 employees. If you need a license for a larger company, please get in touch with the number of employees for a price quote.


Can I use the Licensed Fonts to create merchandise?

Using our fonts to create merchandise, i.e. any consumer goods that can be purchased, is governed by a Desktop License Addon–please get in touch with the number of employees for a price quote.


Can I upgrade my License?

An upgrade is required in order to continue using the Licensed Fonts once you outgrow your license. The good news is you only pay the difference in price between the tiers—get in touch for more information.


How are Web MUV (Monthly Unique Visitors) calculated?

Web MUV are calculated as a 3 month moving average—if that average is exceeded you need to upgrade the following month. For instance, the number of February MUV is calculated from the sum of the months November through January.


How are usage metrics tracked?

You are responsible for ensuring that you stay within the tier metrics you have paid for and you must upgrade your license accordingly if your use exceeds them. We do check if usage limits are being met, so make sure to have appropriate tracking software in place, i.e. Web/App user analytics.
