About

Heavyweight is the symbolic name for common creative efforts in typeface design established in Prague in 2013. The founding members are Filip Matejicek and Jan Horcik. The name refers to the typographical description of a voluminous font style, its heavy weight. Primarily, however, it express the emphasis put on simplicity, precision of detail, and tasteful design, which can be used variably across graphic design applications. Its contemporary approach to typeface design goes hand in hand with respect for the discipline and its history. Delight in experiment is rooted in a knowledge of rules of typography. Authenticity is an integral prerequisite of the creative strategy, with our signature style being dosed such that the result is original, but still variable in use. In its brief life, Heavyweight has produced fonts that are used globally by institutions such as The New York Times, Walker Art Center, Whitney Museum etc., but also small independent publishing houses and start-ups. Heavyweight fonts are designed and technically crafted to be available for a comprehensive range of uses in print and on websites, in digital applications, broadcasting, etc.

  • 04License Agreement

    The terms and conditions set below establish an agreement between you and Heavyweight based at Myslíkova 9, 110 00, Praha 1, Czech Republic, governing your use of the Font Software (or “Fonts”) ordered by you. This End User License Agreement (“EULA”, “Agreement”, or “License”) becomes binding by downloading, installing, or otherwise using Font Software provided by Heavyweight.

    What this paragraph means:
    This document is a legally binding agreement. You agree to the terms of this document by downloading or using the font software. Please read this document carefully and keep a copy for your records.

    DEFINITIONS

    “Font Software” or “Fonts” is digital software that generates typeface and/or illustration designs when used with computers and other software. “Licensed Entity” is the individual, company, or legal entity purchasing this license (hereinafter “Licensed Entity” or “you”). “Licensed User” is one (1) human being using one (1) personal computer owned by the Licensed Entity (hereinafter “Licensed User” or “User[s]”). “Geographic Location” is the geographic location of the Licensed User at the time the License is purchased. A Licensed User who moves is deemed to have moved the Geographic Location of the Licensed User.

    RIGHTS RESERVED

    The Font Software and design of the Fonts created by the software are protected under copyright and other intellectual property law. Heavyweight, its licensors, and their successors and assigns each retain all right and title to their respective software, trademarks, copyrights and the designs embodied in the Font Software. You agree not to copy the Font Software or create derivative works based upon the Font Software and/or the design of the Font embodied in the Font Software, its structure, organization, code, and design of the Fonts embodied therein, the trademarks, trade names and service marks.

    You hereby agree that this term is contractual in nature and that the unauthorized use of the design of the Font and/or the Font Software shall be an infringement of Heavyweight’s rights; causing significant monetary harm. You further agree that such damages cannot be readily estimated, and Heavyweight shall be entitled, without the obligation of a bond, to seek injunctive relief.

    What this paragraph means:
    Heavyweight owns all rights to the fonts, including trademarks and copyrights. You may not copy the Fonts or the design of the Fonts even to make other fonts based on the Fonts. This term is part of a contract. If you break this License we have the right to seek an order to stop you. The Font Software is the exclusive property of Heavyweight. Heavyweight owns all rights, title and interest in and to the Font Software, its structure, organization, code, and design of the Fonts embodied therein, the trademarks, trade names, and service marks.

    GRANT OF LICENSE

    This non-exclusive, revocable License grants you limited rights to use the Font Software to use the Font Software and the designs embodied therein together with any accompanying documentation, each in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. You agree that incorporating the Font Software into other computer programs, sublicensing the Font Software, using the Font Software for the benefit of third parties, distributing the Font Software, or using the Font Software for any other purpose requires the purchase of a separate license. The license is linked to the invoice where its specification is mentioned. Please keep both documents for eventual proof of the rights of use. 

    What this paragraph means:
    Heavyweight grants you a license to use the Font Software for the uses identified in this agreement. You must purchase a special license for use at more than one geographic location. Use of the Font Software on a portable computer is allowed. If you are licensed at a particular geographic location and you move, you do not need to buy an additional license.

For the purposes of this agreement “embedding” is defined as the temporary duplication of the Font Software in formats that include, but not limited to the PDF, Flash, TrueDoc and/or other Web Embedding Font Technology formats now in existence as well as any other format that may be created in the future. If embedding of the Font Software is required for production files, a copy of the Font Software may be shared with those companies providing prepress and/or printing services. If those companies providing prepress and/or printing services must change or manipulate the text using the Heavyweight Fonts, those companies must purchase a license. You are not permitted to convert the Fonts for use as webfonts. Certain programs allow embedding of the Font Software or outlines of the typeface embodied in the Font Software in documents which may be transmitted from one computer to another over a network or over the Internet and all such actions are expressly prohibited. If you have purchased a proper license, embedding the vector outlines of the Heavyweight Fonts in public .pdf type files is permitted.

    What this paragraph means:
    You can embed the font software in any .pdf documents. Convert to web fonts is prohibited.

Any back-up copy must prominently display all copyright and trademark notices present on the original Font Software. If your license permits use in multiple locations or with corporate or enterprise uses, you are permitted to make a reasonable number of backups as may be reasonably necessary. The unauthorized sharing, lending, renting, sale, or other unauthorized use or misuse of the Font Software and/or the back-up copy(ies) is a material breach of this Agreement and will result in the termination of this license.

    AGENCIES

    If you are a design consultancy/agency, advertising agency, or purchasing this license for use by or on behalf of such an entity, the ultimate end user should also purchase a license appropriate for the intended use and users of the Font Software. The license granted herein does not extend to uses by temporary employees, freelancers, or independent contractors using the Font Software in professional environments or for other professional uses. Specifically, you may not make copies or serve the web fonts in a number greater than those authorized under this License.

    What this paragraph means:
    These Fonts are licensed for your use. If you are using the Fonts to design for a third party, the third party must also purchase a license. 


    TERMINATION

    This Agreement is effective upon the download, installation, or use of the Font Software. This Agreement may be terminated by you at any time by destroying the Font Software together with any printed material and any copies of the Font Software.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • 01 What is a font license?

    A font license permits the use of a font on the basis of a right that is precisely specified in the license. By purchasing the license, however, you do not become the owner of the font. The license as such sets the conditions of use. Once it is purchased, the agreement between you and Heavyweight Digital Type Foundry is fulfilled. The one-time price of a font license sets out the conditions of its use and its amount is increased with the number of its applications. Our offer includes font licenses for use in print, on websites, in social media, in mobile applications, in electronic publications, but also corporate licenses. Reading and understanding the license conditions is important before an actual purchase is made. The licensing conditions of Heavyweight Digital Type Foundry (EULA) are available on our website and for reading before and in the course a purchase. Please understand that by downloading or installing one of our fonts, you automatically consent to our licensing agreement (EULA).

  • 02 Does Heavyweight grant trial licenses?

    Yes, we do provide trial licenses. A trial package is available for downloading on the page of each font. This type of font contains only a basic set of characters. Upper and lower-case letters and basic punctuation marks. Test fonts do not feature any OpenType functions, such as kerning. A trial license permits you to use a font only in testing, not in final commercial or non-commercial products. For those, you need a full-fledged font license.

  • 03 Can I upgrade a font license?

    Yes, you can. If you decide for a license upgrade, please contact us by e-mail at contact@heavyweight-type.com. Please prepare the invoice for the font you have purchased. It is important for identifying the font and generating an upgrade code. License upgrade means – for example – the extension of a license from 3 computers to 10 etc.

  • 04 Who should buy a license if there is a parent company with several subsidiaries?

    In that case, the font should be bought by the parent company. It should purchase a scope corresponding to the actual number of computers on which the fonts will be used, including all subsidiaries. The most elegant and effective solution is buying an Enterprise License.

  • 05 Can I buy a font for my client?

    Yes, you can. A license is normally accompanied by billing information and the invoice itself. The entity stated in the invoicing data becomes the license holder. If you wish for a third party to become the license holder, please fill out step 3 of the “License Holder” form.

  • 06 Can I share a font with my supplier?

    Generally, font files cannot be provided to third parties. To have that option, you need to purchase a “3rd Party” license that gives you that right. You can find it in the “Other” sections, when choosing the license type during the purchase process.

  • 07 What methods of payment do you accept?

    We use Stripe to securely process credit card data. We cannot see your private details. If you wish to know more about the security at Stripe, please click here. The only credit cards we are not able to accept are followings: Diner's Club, Discover and JCB issued in U.S. In case you have one of these, please contact us on contact@heavyweight-type.com. We do not accept any type of cryptocurrency. We can also manage international transfers for font licence purchases of EUR 1,000 or more.

  • 08 What should I do if the transaction fails?

    In the event of recurring problems with payment, we recommend you check your card limit or Internet payment restrictions. Also please check whether you are connected to the Internet. If the problem persists after those checks, please contact us at support@heavyweight-type.com.

  • 09 Does Heavyweight offer discounts?

    We offer a 50% discount for students for their non-commercial and commercial projects during their studies. We also support educational programmes and non-profit organisations with the same discount. To get a discount, please contact us on contact@heavyweight-type.com and enclose a confirmation documenting the above.

  • 10 How and when will I get fonts from Heavyweight?

    After a successful payment, the font will be sent to your e-mail address together with an invoice. Keep the invoice in a safe place.

  • 11 Can a font be exchanged if I buy the wrong one?

    You have a chance to check the contents of your basket several times during the purchase process, and correct your choice if need be. All purchases are final, and you cannot return a font to us or have it exchanged.

  • 12 Can I approach you in the event of a technical defect in the font?

    Of course, technical support is available, and we will be glad to answer any of your inquiries concerning technical difficulties or installation. Our fonts are prepared carefully and there should be no problems with functionality. Should it happen, however, please use support@heavyweight-type.com.

  • 13 Can I use the font I have purchased in ways other than those stated in the license?

    If you decide to use a font in a manner other than stipulated in the text of the license, you need to purchase the relevant additional license or upgrade your license. For example, a Desktop License does not give you the right to use a font on a website. In that case, you also need to buy a Website license.

  • 14 On what basis should I choose the right license for my website?

    A website license is determined according to the monthly viewership of the website. Viewership can be calculated as the sum of three subsequent months, averaged out. For a new website, we recommend purchasing a basic license or make an estimate of the viewership. When viewership increases, the license needs to be upgraded.

  • 15 Are you able to design a special custom font?

    We also offer custom fonts and lettering. You need only describe your plans and we will draft an offer on the basis of your detailed assignment. For samples of custom fonts, see the Projects section of our website. If you are interested, please contact us at contact@heavyweight-type.com.
