What is Blaze Type?

Blaze Type is a French type design foundry based in Lyon, France, founded in 2016 by Matthieu Salvaggio.

How does your license works?

It's rather simple! When you purchase one of our fonts, you get the rights to use the fonts on any projects you want: print, web, app, broadcast, with no "amount of users" limitation. Here are our three different kind of licensing:

• Student & Academics (Get the rights to use the fonts at a 80% discount for personal / commercial projects). The rights to use the fonts extend after the end of one's studies and are validated as a "Freelance" License and might be updated to a Company sized license depending on your activity's growth.

• Company: starting from Freelance to Unlimited. If you plan on using the fonts on anything related to social media, know that the Social Media for up to 10K followers across platforms is included for free. (Make sure you don't need an upgrade here depending on how your followers base evolve)

• Social Media (with the possibility to pick the right amount of Followers —across all social media platforms combined— starting from 10K Followers to Unlimited): grants you a licensing right to use the fonts on anything related to Social Media communication.

Can I use your fonts for NFT projects?

You may but under certain conditions, please send us an email by writing to hello@blazetype.eu about your enquiry.

What languages do you support?

Our fonts support Latin languages (European—Western, Central, South Eastern). You can view all the languages covered by our fonts directly in each of the type family's page.

We are open to extending our fonts support to other languages, such as Cyrillic or Greek, if you are interested in such a version for a specific font or type family, please get in touch with us.

Our support is available in English or French.

In order to get a reply as quickly as possible, please write to us in either English or French.

What is the character set of your Font Families?

The character set may change from one Typeface family to the other. Usually you will find a large number of glyphs in our fonts, covering Math Symbols, Proportional/OldStyle Digits, Arrows, Small Caps, etc.

You may view each of the Typeface’s glyphs by downloading its PDF specimen or checking its character set at the bottom of the font's page in our Type Catalogue area.

What kind of files should I expect?

We deliver .OTF / .WOFF / .WOFF2 formats. You may also expect Variable Version of our fonts when purchasing a full family.
Our fonts are tested on Apple/Windows OS and various softwares and browsers such as the Adobe CC, TextEdit, Microsoft Office, Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and so on.

If you’re looking to get your hands on a .TTF version, please get in touch with us.

Do you offer Trial Fonts?

Even though we released this website with a built-in type tester, we offer trial fonts which only contain the basic character needed to test out the typeface (Uppercases, lowercases, numbers and some punctuation). You will need to have an account registered to access them.

Our trial fonts are available only to let you visualise what you can do with our products. They are an easy and efficient way to try out our fonts. However, you cannot share project designed with them online: they are restricted testing tools. If you are looking for a font license to showcase some of your works, check our Starter Pack Sections

Does my printer need a license?

If you are unable to generate a PDF or postscript with the Typeface embedded, you are allowed to send a copy of the Typeface to your printer or service bureau. Once the job is complete, either you (the license owner), or the printer/service bureau must delete the copy of the Typeface.

Do you offer student prices?

We know the struggle it is for students to have access to Typefaces they want to experiment and develop their skills with. Therefore we offer a 80% discount on all our non limited products for students and schools.

How much do you charge for a font?

The price depends on the type of license you are looking for. Each of our font costs 30€ when purchased under a Freelance License for example. 30€ is our base price for fonts and all our license cost are based on that number.

 VAT is applied at checkout depending on our country VAT rate. VAT is not applied if you live outside of the EU or if your company owns a VAT number (except for France).
