Client told me what font she wants to use, but I dont need that font in the future.

I told her to buy the font because she plans to use it for more projects.

Can you explain in general cases when should designer buy a font, and in which a client.

I use CS5 i have more then enough fonts for my design.

Thank you for your help,

Ivana

Ivana,

If both are using the font in the process, both should have a licence.

If you and she can avoid using the font at the same time, a single licence may be transferred.

  • She may buy the font and transfer it to you for your work, and you may transfer it back to her.
  • Or you may buy the font, use it, and transfer it as part of the delivery, so that she pays for it and gets it in the end.

The former requires two transfers, but the buyer and end owner will be the same.

You are welcome, Ivana.

You may say that my answer reflects how things may be, and should be.

I hope a transfer is possible in your case.

It may be worth comparing the conditions offered by different vendors if applicable.

This is not necessarily correct. You'd better check with the font vendor to ascertain whether the license allows for such transfers. I suspect that many won't!

Thank you very much for the correction, Dov.

I am quite surprised, but maybe I should not be.

Well, if you agree with the pricing, you can just buy the font and add the weight to the price since you mentioned that you have more than enough for your purposes.
