Buyer’s Guide: Basic Licenses and MULs

Are you following FontShop’s EULA Highlights? If so, then you are familiar with basic licenses for desktop use. If not, then a basic license is the initial cost to license a font so that you can use it within the terms of the EULA. But did you know that you can extend the basic license to add additional users?

A Multi-User license, MUL for short, is purchased when you need to support additional users above the basic license. MULs may also support multiple geographic locations, extending the single location terms found in most EULAs.


Once you’ve added a font to your cart, you can extend your basic license by changing the number of users that you need to support. For this example we’ve used Bookmania from Mark Simonson Studio.

Changing the number of users in your cart will re-calculate the cost of the license and the tier that you fall into. As you can see, the cart re-calculates to a 10 user license if support for 6 users for Bookmania is needed.

If you’ve purchased a basic license in the past and you need to extend it to support additional users, or multiple locations, then email FontShop’s Support Team to extend your current license.
