Can I still sell materials using Adobe fonts after CC subscription ends?

Hi all.

I'm considering using a couple of Adobe fonts for some t-shirt designs I'd like to sell.

 

If I design these products using Adobe fonts and then later cancel my subscription, can I continue to sell the products I made using these fonts from my website?

 

I understand that users are licensed for fonts only as long as they have an active subscription. Does that mean that I would only be unable to create new designs with those Adobe fonts but could still continue selling the designs I already have?

 

(Side note: I'm not planning to cancel or anything. I just don't want to have a situation where I'm forced to maintain the subscription to keep selling my designs with Adobe fonts.)

Yes, you can continue to sell the original T-Shirt that uses that font.  However, without a Creative Cloud subscription, you can't keep using the font in old or new artwork.

Can you explain what you mean by "can't keep using the font in old...artwork"?

The use case I'm thinking of is this:

1. I design a shirt using one of these fonts.

2. I make that design available on Teespring or another service.

3. My Creative Cloud subscription ends.

4. Can people still order that design?

What I mean is you can't open a layered PSD or AI work file and reuse the font because it won't be available to your software.  For that matter, you won't have CC software access without a paid subscription either.

 

Flattened artwork is not effected -- JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF, etc...

Ah ok. That makes sense.  Thank you. You don't foresee any issues with the above scenario where Teespring (or whoever) prints the shirts on demand even while my subscription is no longer active, do you?

Your subscription has no effect on the artwork you already submitted to the T-shirt printer.
