What are fonts?
Computer fonts are collections of letters, numbers, and other characters that are all designed in the same style. Some common fonts include Times New Roman, Arial, Calibri, Helvetica, and Garamond. Fonts are normally provided in TFF or OTF file format to be installed on a computer. You'll often hear “font” and “typeface” used interchangeably, but technically a typeface is made up of multiple fonts - each in a specific weight, style, and size.
How much can I sell a font for?
The average font sells to designers and creators for around $25-$30, and you can sell as many copies as you like. Alternatively, you might prefer to create custom fonts on commission: you could potentially charge thousands of dollars for this. The more complex your font and the more variations you offer (such as a bold and italic version of the font), the more it's likely to sell for.
How much do font designers make?
Font or typeface designers in the USA make a salary of around $75,000. If you're a freelance font designer, you could potentially make a lot more. To maximize your income, consider avoiding big marketplaces and instead sell through your own website or online store with Payhip. That way, you won't end up losing a lot of your income in marketplace commission.
Is there a storage limit?
No, we have no storage or bandwidth limits. We only have a 5GB per file limit. If you really need more than 5GB per file, then get in touch.

How can I sell fonts?
The best way to sell a font that you've created is through Payhip, as you'll only pay a small (5%) commission. To sell your font, simply create a free Payhip account, add a new product, upload your TFF or OTF file to the product, and set your price. You can then sell your font either through your Payhip store or from your own website.
Can I sell my handwriting as a font?
If your handwriting is neat and has an interesting style, you could definitely turn it into a font. You'll need to draw out each letter, number, and symbol with a thick black pen, scan your work, and make any digital edits needed. You might want to look at other handwriting fonts to see what sells well and to get inspiration for creating your own handwritten font.
Are fonts copyrighted?
A little confusingly, in the USA, typefaces aren't copyrighted but fonts are. Typefaces are often protected by a patent, however. When you purchase a typeface, you'll get a license to use it in certain ways. You need to check carefully that this license covers how you plan to use the font. For instance, you may not be licensed to use the font commercially - e.g. on a print product that you sell.
