Hello, I am seeking assistance re Adobe Fonts for commercial use:
1. Can I create my business logo using Adobe Fonts and have it placed on a physical product for sale? Ie on shoes, clothing labels, etc for use for an indefinite period of time? Does the status of my Creative Cloud subscription impact this?
2. Is there a way to purchase an Adobe Font to have exclusive use of it?
Can I use the fonts to create a logo or other images? Yes. You can use the fonts in any desktop program (such as Adobe Photoshop) to create images or vector artwork, which you can then use for any purpose. This includes generating a PDF, EPS file, or bitmapped file such as a JPEG or PNG.
The status of your Creative Cloud subscription would be necessary if you use activated (synchronized) Adobe fonts. But once your logo artwork is created, that file is yours. If you don't have the font installed on your local computer, then you wouldn't be able to make any changes involving that activated font if you no longer have a CC subscription.
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by purchasing exclusive use. Do you mean exclusive only to you? For logo and branding use, I think it's better to select a font and then use Illustrator to customize the individual letters through outlining and subtle character shape changes to make the look unique to your vision. I hope that's helpful.
Thank you Jain!
Exclusive use: as soon as a font is in Adobe Fonts, any of Adobe's millions of subscribers could have used it. It's far too late to be exclusive. The same with any font on sale. To get exclusive use of a font you'd need to approach a font foundry to have it designed. Designing a font can take months so this is expensive and usually only done by large publishers or enterprises. Much cheaper to have a logo designed by an expert, asking him or her to create unique typography.
