  1. I really appreciate your page here and have been looking for fonts to use in my logo/signature. I have however come across something confusing and that possibly violates the terms: the licensing terms don’t allow for the purchased fonts to be used in your own trademark. I think that even if you never put TM near your signature or logo, it still counts as a trademark, especially if you’re branding all of your photos with it. Am I wrong?

    Found it here: https://support.creativemarket.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000797014-Fonts-License-Use-Cases#trademark

    Cheers!

    1. Hi Dale,

      You are right – you can’t trademark a logo that’s made from a purchased font. That’s because rights to the font original belong to its author/designer. If you are looking to create an actual trademarked logo for your business, you need to hire a proper logo designer that will design a logo for you personally from scratch.

      This article is made for folks who just need a nice logo for their personal little business. All of these fonts can be used for personal use (to write your business name and post it on your website as a logo or print it on your business cards). Yes, if you use one of these fonts, someone else might decide to use the same font for their logo as well, but for a small startup or local business, that’s just fine.

      If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind signature logo that you will trademark – free or even paid fonts won’t do.

      Cheers! 🙂
