Section A — Licensing

What is a "Basic License"?

A basic license purchased via this website covers installation on up to 3 workstations within one organisation and allows you to self-host webfont files for a single domain (up to 50k unique visitors/month, no time limitation).

What if I need more than 3 installations or my website exceeds 50k unique visitors/month?

Please drop us a line with your request at fonts@floriankarsten.com, and we will generate a custom checkout link based on your specification.

What if my website exceeds 50k unique visitors/month over time?

In case you purchased the basic license and you exceed the limit, please get back to us and upgrade your license accordingly.

Can I license FK fonts for use in apps or broadcasting?

We handle these licences case by case. Please contact us with more details.

Can I test your typefaces before purchase?

We provide free trial files upon request via e-mail. Please be aware that our trial files contain only uppercase and lowercase letters, numerals and limited set of punctuation. You may use these files only for testing visuals and to deliver a presentation to your clients to demonstrate a potential use of the typefaces. Please do not use the trial font files for production. You must not modify, sell or redistribute trial font files.

Section B — Payment

How does your payment system work?

Our order process is conducted by our online reseller Paddle.com. Paddle.com is the Merchant of Record for all our orders. Paddle provides all customer service inquiries and handles returns. Please be aware that Paddle collects your information at checkout to process your purchase. You can read more about Paddle platform here.

Do you charge VAT?

As a company registered in the Czech Republic, we are obligated to charge Value Added Tax (VAT) on our sales and services within the European Union (EU). If your billing address is outside of the EU, we donʼt charge VAT. EU customers are charged their local VAT unless they provide a valid VAT ID during the checkout process, in which case they are charged 0% VAT. However, EU customers who were charged 0% VAT from us are required to declare and pay the associated value-added tax (the so-called ‘reverse charge’ procedure) in their country. Czech customers without valid VAT ID may contact us directly via e-mail.

What is your refund and exchange policy?

All sales are final and we do not offer refunds for mistakes made by the buyer or purchaser. Please check your order carefully, exchanges cannot be given.

Section C — Delivery

How do you deliver purchased font files?

After you complete your payment, you will receive two e-mails – an invoice directly from Paddle.com, and your files from fonts@floriankarsten.com. Also, please make sure you check your spam folder. In case you did not receive the files, please get back to us and we will re-send the package immediately.

Which font files do you provide?

Our desktop fonts are provided in OTF and variable TTF file formats (variable font files are delivered only with a Full Family package and only when highlighted in the package description). Fonts for the web are provided in WOFF and WOFF2 file formats.
