Can I use ZabriskieScript Regular for commerical products? How do I pay for licensing it?

Post by MarcW » Fri Apr 23, 2021 11:44 pm

Hi,

I wish to use ZabriskieScipt Regular on some commercial merchandise like ceramic Mugs.

I believe its designer works at SoftMaker. Can anyone tell me how I can purchase a license to use it commercially, either on its own or perhaps in a package of fonts? (As cheaply as possible).

Alternatively, if this isn't possible, are there any free fonts I can use on my proposed merchandise that are very similar to this font?

Many thanks in anticipation.

Have you looked at Florence, Karlskrona, and Limoges in the Megafonts NOW collection?

ZabriskieScipt Regular was part of the old MegaFonts XXL. IS no longer available in the current MegaFonts NOW.

There is a ZambriskeScript in the "Elegan Script" font pack. You may want to check that one.

It is there, but it doesn't include web fonts, and the license does not allow it to be used for making e-books (EPUB). With so many people doing e-books these days, I can't understand selling a font package that doesn't permit the fonts to be used for e-books.

Is there any response to this discussion from SoftMaker?

E-books are the wave of the future for independent ("indie") authors. I know personally, and I know of through a writers' forum to which I belong, many writers who have published many novels each, and only through Amazon Kindle or Apple iBooks. They sell all their books as digital contejt only -- they don't even bother trying to publish printed books.

With all due respect, in today's publishing environment a font or font collection whose license does not allow its use for e-books is completely useless. E-books is "where it's at." I hope SoftMaker will revise its licensing structure to allow use of all your fonts in publishing e-books.

Currently, it's not possible, but I have forwarded this request to our product management...
