Hello. I am planning to buy HELVETICA REGULAR from linotype. It will cost 39 euro. Are there other cheaper solutions than this?. Can I find it also somewhere for free? Can I buy it also from Adobe?

Thanks

To be very clear, you typically don't buy a font; you license a font.

 

Adobe no longer directly licenses any Helvetica font other than as part of the Adobe Font Folio product (see https://www.adobe.com/products/fontfolio.html). You can legally license various flavours of Helvetica directly from Linotype and other vendors on their behalf.

 

There are no “free” versions of Helvetica. You can reasonably assume that if you find a website offering a “free” download of Helvetica, you are dealing with pirated software.
