FontLab for Education

If you’re a student, a teacher, or if you represent a high school, college or university, and you are interested in FontLab apps for type design and font creation — we offer two types of educational discounts:

  • individual edu discounts if you’re a student or teacher, and wish to buy one license of any of our apps for yourself,
  • school edu discounts if you wish to buy 8 or more licenses of any of our apps for your computer lab, or for a group of students.

Individual Edu Discounts

For students and teachers

If you’re a student or a teacher (staff, faculty) at an accredited college or university, you can buy one license per app for yourself using our individual educational discount prices.

If you qualify for an edu discount and buy a full license, you can use the app for any purpose (including creation of commercial fonts), even after you leave the school. That license entitles you to normal future upgrades.

If you buy a 1-year license, you’ll need to purchase another 1-year license or a full license after the 1-year license expires — and you’ll need to qualify for an edu discount again. 1-year licenses do not entitle you to upgrades.

The prices below are in US$ (U.S. dollars) and apply to purchases done in our Student & Teacher store. Please visit it for most current pricing and special offers.

After you submit your order, scan/photo and email your student/faculty ID or a document that certifies that you’re a student or employee of an accredited college or university to orders@fontlab.com. We will send you a serial number by separate email after we verify your credentials. The edu discounts are limited to one license of each app per person. You can subsequently purchase upgrades at normal upgrade pricing.

We have distributors in other regions of the world. If you wish to pay with a method that we don’t support, or if you wish to buy from a company that has a U.S. tax ID or a European VAT number, please contact one of our worldwide distributors. Note: edu prices at our distributors may vary.

School Edu Discounts

For high schools, colleges, universities or student groups

If you represent an educational institution (a high school, college or university), and you’d like to install our apps in a computer lab, or to install our apps on your students’ own computers, you can buy 8 or more licenses of apps with a single purchase. This requires the appointment of a single person at the institution to be the contact person for support and maintenance between FontLab and the institution.

  • If you buy 8 or more licenses of FontLab VI, the price per license is US$184.
  • If you buy 8 or more licenses of FontLab Studio 5, the price per license is US$227.
  • For all other apps, the price per license is the same as the individual edu prices.
