Passfoto von Dieter Steffmann, Breite 150 PixelIch heiße Dieter Steffmann, bin gelernter Schriftsetzer, übe den Beruf aber seit 1966 nicht mehr aus. 1986 erwarb ich einen Commodore Amiga 2000 mit 6 MB RAM, einer 50 MB großen SCSI-Festplatte und einem Multitasking-Betriebssystem. Das hört sich aus heutiger Sicht für Unwissende vielleicht immer noch nach „Spielzeug-Computer“ an, aber damals hatte ein MS-DOS-Rechner maximal 640 KB RAM und eine Festplatte von höchstens 20 MB; von Multitasking, Sound, 4096 Farben etc. gar nicht zu reden. Das Betriebssystem des Amiga passte auf 4 Disketten – und das sehr ausführliche Handbuch umfasste ca. 500 Seiten in einem Schuber.

Der Amiga hatte bereits eine graphische Bedieneroberfläche („Workbench“) mit Maus-Bedienung, und das zu Zeiten, als PC-User ihre Kommando-Kürzel noch per Tastatur eingeben mussten und der PC-Monitor höchstens 16 Farben darstellen konnte. Die Disketten waren damals übrigens bereits im 3,5-Zoll-Format. Von den Grafikfähigkeiten konnten die MS-DOS-User also nur träumen. Es gab 1987 auch bereits ein sehr professionelles Desktop Publishing Programm aus St. Louis namens „Pagestream“, welches bereits WYSIWYG-fähig war: Preis 130 Dollar. Das Amiga-Betriebssystem arbeitete bereits mit Vektor-Fonts der Firma Agfa („Intellifonts“), kam aber auch mit Adobe Postscriptfonts zurecht. Eine Schriftdiskette mit 4 Fonts kostete ca. 100 DM und war – wenn überhaupt – nur in einem Großstadtwarenhaus erhältlich.

Wer aber glaubt, er könne heute – wie früher in Bleisatzzeiten – eine Schrift kaufen und hätte dann das Eigentum erworben, der irrt gewaltig: Die Schrifthäuser vergeben lediglich „Lizenzen“ für eine Datei aus lauter „Nullen und Einsen“, die keinen realen Materialwert hat, und der Käufer wird in der Regel  mitnichten Eigentümer sondern lediglich Lizenznehmer!

Seit Oktober 2012 bin ich im Ruhestand und habe nun ausreichend Zeit für mein „Fototagebuch“. Mein Sehvermögen hat jedoch infolge einer Diabetes-Erkrankung trotz Laserung des rechten Auges stark nachgelassen. Und zur Fortbewegung bin ich nach einer Nervenschädigung in beiden Beinen auf Trekkingstöcke angewiesen. Trotzdem habe ich nun nach zahlreichen Wanderungen im Bergischen Land, Siegerland und Sauerland den Hansaweg (X9) zwischen Herford und Hameln durch das Lippische Bergland hinter mich gebracht und 5 Etappen durch Lippe und danach auf dem Sigwardsweg von Minden nach Idensen „gepilgert“. Die Weihnachtstage verbringe ich in Eisenach im „Haus Hainstein“ direkt unterhalb der Wartburg. Und wenn der Frühling kommt, wandere ich auf den Werra-Burgen-Steig …

    Mr Steffmann, does your free fonts mean that they are completely free or are there limitations? Thank you.

        Hello Mr. Steffmann, I really like your Old London font. I was wondering if it would be okay to use for commercial purposes. It would be for the purpose some wording on a label for e-liquid that I’m trying to start up. I did read your answer to Mr. Hynes comment stating it is free for private use, but is there anyway I can use it for commercial use or is that out of the question? Hope to hear from you soon Mr. Steffmann.

        Thanks,

      • I downloaded two of your fonts from 1001 Fonts. On the download page it said they were free for commerical use. But on your personal page it said not for professional use, and here you say for private use only. The two fonts I downloaded I want to use for headings in ebooks, which would be for publication and sale. If they are not free for that use, how would one go about getting a license?

          Hello Mr. Steffmann,

          I too purchased a package of over 10k fonts to use for commercial use, so to see this question concerns me. I went to your site today to inquire on a few other fonts you have created, you create magnificent fonts :), to see if they were available for commercial use. I am opening an Etsy shop using some typography for Art pieces to sell. There would not be significant publications, just a mom trying to make some extra income to assist with our 1 income family since we just had another child…. So can you please confirm if the fonts I have already purchased through dafont.com are indeed available to be used commercially? I am also interested in using some of your other fonts, Gabrielle, Old Englishe, Honeyscript, Arabella, Deutsche Zierschrift, Medici Cert, Forwelle, Circus Ornate, Sans Plate Caps, Trocadero and Toskanische Egyptienne Initialen. I apologize for asking so much of you, but I absolutely love your work!! I truly appreciate your time and consideration to my request and the clarification of using the fonts that I have purchased.

          Warm regards,

          Racheal Palmer

  2. Ja der gute alte Amiga – ich muss mich grad dran erinnern, wie ich selbst in den 90igern noch mit einem schönen Commodore „gespielt“ habe und wie groß der Hype war, als dann die Revolution begann mit WIN 95 – ach das waren noch Zeiten.

        I was also looking for a link in order to download all the fonts. When that’s not an option, using wget and standard *NIX commands is more efficient than downloading the fonts one by one… The following Bourne shell script downloads all the zip files:

        wget "$URL" -o /dev/null -O - \

    I have been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours as of late, yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful value enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the web shall be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  9. Bill Roach sagt:

    Greetings Mr. Steffmann. I am an artist (non-professional), and I have been looking all over the internet for fonts to use in my publications and designs. I am a low income (budgeted) person – and free fonts that I can use that are ok for commercial projects (electronic and print publications, games, etc.), are very important to me.

    I discovered your font page at Typeoasis – and in my opinion – both yourself and Paul Lloyd are the only two typeologists / typographers that offer excellent quality letter types that seem to cover such an immensely wide range of historical eras and design periods. I am – however – very saddened sir – to find that such a fabulous artistic tool collection as yours, is relegated to only private uses. Your font packages do not seem to include a specific license agreement text file or document – and on many free font sites – they are listed as „COMMERCIAL USE ALLOWED“. This could cause others to mistakenly use your fonts in desgn projects that are commercial – resulting in serious legal consequences for them. Is there any way that you could somehow work with cybapee / Miss Heidorn at Typoasis to correct this situation?

    Thank you sir – Bill Roach, U.S.A…

    P.S. – I have made a few fonts myself – and the are free for all uses private and commercial. My fonts can be found at: http://www.dafont.com/bill-roach.d3814

    • Dieter sagt:

      Hello Mr. Roach,

      generally, all of the fonts are free for non commercial uses only to protect commercial font shops (Linotype, Fontshop etc.).
      But many of the fonts are not present by the commercials, in these cases i give the permission after single request.

      With friendly regards

    Sehr geehrter Herr Steffmann,

    ich habe Sie soeben über Fontspace entdeckt. Da ich augenblicklich an einem Kinderbuch arbeite und leider das Budget einer alleinerziehenden Mutter habe, suche ich nach kostenlosen Schriften. Bis vor kurzem dachte ich noch, mehr als einige zig gäbe es nicht an Schriftarten…Ich lerne in Sachen Schriften täglich dazu. Bei Fontspace habe ich mein Häkchen bei „commercial use only“ gesetzt, so dass ich nur Schriften vorgeschlagen bekomme, die ich auch kommerziell nutzen darf. So dachte ich. Jetzt bin ich auf Ihre Homepage gegangen und lese, Sie geben nur ausnahmsweise Ihre Schriften gratis frei. Möglicherweise interessiert es Sie, dass ich nicht weniger als 9 Seiten Ihrer Schrifarten als kommerziell nutzbar ohne Kosten vorgeschlagen bekam. Es würde mich interessieren, was Sie dazu sagen.

    Mit freundlichen Grüßen,

    Dear Mr Steff man,

    I am a young writer trying to publish my first fantasy novel as an ebook with little money to spend on publishing. I’ve fallen in love with your Benjamin Franklin font and can’t find anything else like it. Would it be possible to use your font for my front cover?

  14. Seán Ó Séaghdha sagt:

    Dear Mr. Steffman,

    Like so many others here I’m writing to ask permission to use your fonts, but in the form of an electronic book (ePub). To do this the fonts themselves are included in the file which is actually a ZIP archive. It is possible to use font obfuscation to prevent readers from extracting and using the fonts, but unfortunately there are two competing standards which would require two different editions. In short, I would like to avoid it, but if you prefer to have the fonts obfuscated I’ll certainly do it.

    A second issue: the standard only mentions OpenType fonts and my reader only works with them. So, I would also need to convert TTF to OTF.

    A third issue: I would like to add some kerning to Goudy Medieval.

    The book would include a colophon listing the fonts included and crediting you as their creator. The text of the book is in the public domain and the book itself will be made available free of charge.

    Thanks for reading this rather wordy request.

At this current moment, I am making a map of the lands in the book that I plan to use in the published version of the book once I get to that point. I humbly request the use of your Rosemary font to that end. Coincidentally, this font shares its name with the main character.

    Thank you for creating such a beautiful font.

    Sehr geehrter Herr Steffmann,

    ich arbeite an einem Online- Produkt-Konfigurator, für den ich Fonts benötige. Für diese Art der Anwendung geben die größeren Hersteller, ihre Fonts nur gegen Webserver-Lizenzen heraus, die jedes Jahr eine sehr hohe Gebühr kosten. Auf Grund meines eher kleinen Budgets kommen diese Lizenzen für mich nicht in Betracht und ich bin auf der Suche nach Fonts, welche ich auch für kommerzielle Anwendungen kostenlos verwenden kann. Meine Frage an Sie ist, ob ich Ihre Fonts für dieses Projekt verwenden kann.

Any time I would use them for something that may directly bring income, I will be sure to credit you as the source for the font design. You have created some very unique and beautiful fonts and I would greatly appreciate you allowing me to use them. The main fonts I am interested in using are: Quentin Caps, Marketing Script, Roman Antique, Forelle, and Honey Script. Thank you so much for creating these fonts and for considering my request.

  23. Hello. Thank you for the Schwabacher font. We are trying to reproduce a look similar to an old (1679) document printed in Wein. Your font is very close to it. We do not have much experience with „Gothic“ fonts, but I think I have discovered that if I type „\“, that we get the tall (long?) „S“ symbol. The problem is that the space after that character is too much. We can laboriously re-kern each pair, but before we so, I will ask: Perhaps we are doing something wrong?

  24. Dear Mr. Steffmann,

    I am a freelance book designer working on a series of poetry books aimed at 7-11 year olds, for a UK educational publisher. Would it be possible please to feature your lovely font ‚Cardinal‘ for a poem title within one of the books? The poetry books will be used in primary schools.

    Mr. Steffmann,

    Greetings from California! I am a recent college graduate with a degree in graphic design. I am new to the work force, and as such free fonts are my bread and butter.

    I discovered your „Campanile“ font a year or so ago and have used it in a few class and personal projects, but now I have a client who fell in love with it when I presented it with my design for her new logo. She is a psychiatrist who runs her practice out of her home. My logo joined with your font would feature most prominently on her business cards (as well as greeting cards and CD covers that only current clients receive). I would say that she qualifies as a small business, which leads me to consider her a commercial client.

    Since your fonts are technically only free for personal use, I was wondering how I would go about receiving permission to use „Campanile“ for this commercial project. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

      2) Can I modify just the letter „i“ by dotting it with a heart.

    Dear Dieter Steffmann,

    Thank you so much for creating the wonderful Old London font. This has been an inspiration and a gift to find. I have used it on a project I am currently working on. A digital newspaper, with the goal of bringing advancements to digital typography and distribution of media and more diverse and accessible journalism.

    You can find a screenshot of the font’s use here, https://raw2.github.com/blakefrost/newstime/master/screenshots/2014/02/01/12-10-39.png, and I would like to request your permission to use the font in a commercial capacity, should the need arise.

    Currently, all the use is open and free for anyone to take from, but I do plan on forming a humble business or non-profit to help push things along, and for that I seek your permission.

    Thanks in advance for your consideration and time.

If so, I specify that I will mention you in the credits (the site, still under construction, is http://www.casagordigiani.com).
    Thanks anyway for your attention and good luck with your beautiful fonts!

  44. Greetings from Hong Kong!

    Thank you very much for making the fonts available for personal use. I am self-employed trying to write a mathematics typesetting app for mobile phone using android. The beta-testing and first public release will most likely be free of charge. I am considering bundling the app with fonts other than those typically used in mathematics to make it look more interesting. As the app is free and I am having a very tight budget, could I have your permission to use your font free of charge. If permission is kindly granted, I will notify you about the app’s release.

    If the app is not free and your fonts are included, I need, of course, to seek your permission again.

    With best wishes,

  51. Sehr geehrter Herr Steffmann,

    Ich habe Ihre Schrift „Gotenburg A“ über das Buch „Fraktur mon Amour“ erhalten und für meine typografische Bachelor Arbeit am Prague college verwendet, da es sich zunächst einmal nur um ein privates Projekt handelte. Nun möchte ich aber meine Arbeit beim diesjährigen ISTD Wettbewerb einreichen und möchte daher noch vorher abklären ob Sie damit einverstanden sind. Das ganze Projekt ist nicht im kommerziellen Sinne konzipiert. Einen Geldpreis gibt es nicht und Sie werden selbstverständlich namentlich als Urheber der Schrift erwähnt.

    Hochachtungsvoll,

    Hi there! What an amazing font designer you are. I don’t speak german, so i hope you understand. Your jobs are really nice. My favorite by now is „honey script“, so i was wondering if you could kindly give me commercial permission to use it to design a new logo for a friend of mine. The font is perfect for what she wants. Plus, i would like if i can make little changes in some parts. To be honest, i want only to use honey script as inspiration to make her logo. If that can’t be done, at least can i use it to design the logo? Thanks a lot and congratulations from Brazil for your works.

    I would like to use some of your fonts for typographic illustrations that I will (try to) sell. I will use more than 50 different fonts on each poster so your fonts will only represent a small part of the poster.
    Will that be okay? Otherwise I will be happy to pay for a commercial licence.

    Dear Mr Steffmann,

    First, thank you for your beautiful collection of type fonts. As a long time book collector & student of typography I was excited to run across your work on the internet. With a world now awash in type faces it’s truly refreshing to see a professional such as yourself at work creating carefully crafted type. The fact that your fonts are „free“ is truly a blessing. With that said, as a professional designer I feel your work is well worth paying for.

    My brother-in-law asked me to design a card for his band. It’s called Diving Buffalo and I found and used your font Circus Ornate. First I would like to ask your permission to use this font for his business card and promotional material. Second I would like to ask for a little help as to why I cannot print your font. When I go do distill my design as a PDF I get an error message telling me the font did not embed properly. I’ve downloaded several versions of Circus Ornate and get the same message each time. I’m on a Mac running OS 10.6.8. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Best regards,

    Steve Zane

  60. Mr Steffmann,

    I am doing layout for a reprint collection of Lovecraft’s favorite stories. The original printing used Goudy Initialen at the beginning of each story. I am having to recreate the original .pdfs in InDesign and the font will not embed: I wondered if you have any suggestions. I also see on your site that the font is not free for commercial use as I had been informed. May we have permission to use the Goudy Initialen font?

  70. Cörd Iger sagt:

    Sehr geehrter Herr Steffmann,

    wie in unserem E-Mail-Verkehr erklärt, schäme ich mich immer ein bisschen, wenn ich etwas kostenlos bekomme, obwohl ich im Designbereich selbst sehr oft auf diese Art und Weise arbeiten muss und dies auch für Personen mache, die sich eine Agentur einfach nicht leisten können; und von denen gibt es leider zunehmend mehr. Ich denke, die meisten Leute wissen, weshalb das so ist. Wenn nicht wirklich, dann wenigstens instinktiv.

    In diesem Zusammenhang danke ich Ihnen nochmals für die so zur Verfügung gestellte Eigenleistung und die Freigabe der von Ihnen digitalisierten Fonts, die sonst langsam verloren gehen würden. Somit ist Ihre Leistung auch eine kulturelle.

    Immerhin habe ich einige dieser Fonts schon käuflich erworben und feststellen müssen, dass es bei Überprüfung der Fonts immer wieder Probleme mit der einen oder anderen Tabelle gegeben hat. Die Fonts, die ich von Ihnen hier downgeloadet habe, haben allerdings alle mit Bravour bestanden. Gratulation auch dazu!

    Weil es offensichtlich große Unterschiede bezüglich des Aussehens von Buchstabenausführungen bei besonders der professionellen Umsetzung gibt und diese im kommerziellen Bereich hier von einigen Postern schriftlich angesprochen worden ist, hoffe ich zur Aufklärung folgenden Link setzen zu dürfen: TYPOLEXIKON: Bitte klicken!

    Hier wird zwar Abhilfe geschaffen, viele Fragen bleiben trotzdem, wie zum Beispiel: Betrifft die Bezeichnung T1, die bei einigen Ihrer Fonts anzutreffen ist eine otf-Datei oder handelt es sich auch dabei um tt-Schriften? Oder: Manchmal wird auf einigen Seiten erklärt, dass tt-Schriften od, otf-Ausgaben den persönlichen Geschmack betreffen, wie jemand gerne arbeitet. Beim oben angeführten Link erklärt man uns aber, dass tt-Fonts nur für den Bürogebrauch gut genug sind und für Druckereien nur otf-Ausgaben verwendbar seien. Im Fontblog habe ich das allerdings wieder anders wahr genommen.

    Vielleicht erklären Sie ihren Lesern, wie es vonseiten eines echten, gelernten Schriftsetzers beurteilt wird: Sind Ihre Schriften dann auch für Offset-Maschinen anwendbar oder nur für den Officegebrauch in Verbindung mit nur digitalen Druckern?

    Vielen Dank nochmals für Ihre Leistungen am Allgemeinwohl bezüglich der schriftkulturellen Gestaltung

    • Dieter sagt:

      Bei T1-Fonts handelt es sich um „Postscript Type One Fonts“. Die Postscript Type One Fonts waren noch vor den True Type Fonts der Standard für Mac, O/2, Unix, Amiga, (hier eigentlich die Intellifonts) und plattformübergreifend für graphische Anwendungen allgemein. Microsoft versuchte dann mit den True Type Fonts ein eigenes Format zu etablieren. Später einigte man sich wohl auf einen neuen gemeinsamen Standard, das Open Type Format. Für Windowsbenutzer ist es eigentlich ziemlich schwierig, T1-Schriften (2 Endungen: .pfm und .pbf) zu installieren. In der Regel benötigte man bis zu Windows 7 eine spezielle Software von Adobe, den ATM (Adobe Type Manager).

      Aus meiner Sicht bestehen heute keine qualitativen Unterschiede, ob man TTF oder OTF verwendet. Meine Druckerei vor Ort arbeitet seit Jahren ausschließlich mit TTF und verwendet heute in der Regel das PDF-Format. Dafür müssen die jeweiligen Fonts aber „einbettbar“ (embedded) sein. Diese Einstellung kann beim Erstellen der Fontdateien vorgenommen werden. Probleme tauchen dann auf, wenn andere „Fontverteiler“ Fonts z.b. von T1 nach TTF konvertieren und das Embedding nicht implementieren. Diese User wenden sich dann in der Regel an mich, weil sie meinen, die Fonts seien kopiergeschützt.
      Daher besser bei den hier im Blog angegebenen Links runterladen.

  71. Cörd Iger sagt:

    Vielen Dank für Ihre schnelle Antwort, die nicht nur Aufschlussreich (gewesen) ist, sondern auch noch ermutigt. Diese Problematik hat mir schon fast den Spaß verdorben, zumal es mir so vorgekommen ist, als ob mit dem Computer alles noch komplizierter geworden wäre. Der Link oben – in meinem ersten Text – hat mich in diese Meinungsrichtung geleitet.

    PS: Korrektur einiger Kleinigkeiten in meinem ersten Anschreiben:

    Das Eigenzitat werde zur besseren Verständlichkeit um ein Komma erweitert: …ung T1, die bei einigen Ihrer Fonts anzutreffen ist, eine …

    Und:

    ändere man in: … Schriften od. otf-Ausgaben …

    PPS: Das hat man davon, wenn man direkt ins Eingabefeld schreibt und sofort sendet.

    • Cörd Iger sagt:

      Ist ja klar gewesen: HTML 5. Deshalb sind beim Zitieren wieder Teile verschwunden, die ich aber nicht korrigiere (Spam!). Ich schreibe ja noch blockquote und schließe mit einem slash und blockquote. Hier habe ich offensichtlich den Abschluss nicht verstanden. Werde mich mal um die neueren Befehle kümmern müssen. Muss auch da mit neuerlichen „cite“ in der Klammer geschlossen werden?

      Egal, zum Thema: Wie im Mail geschrieben, gibt es mit der „DSFetteThannhaeuser“ einige Probleme. Da ich mehrere Versionen dieser Schrift in Blogs gefunden habe, die mit Ihnen in Verbindung zu stehen scheinen oder dies auch tun, stelle ich mir die Frage, ob beim 2012er-Modell dadurch ein Unterschied zu den früheren erkennbar ist, dass, drückt man die Space-Taste, in der Vorschau rechts neben den Buchstaben einige Punkte festzustellen sind. Was bedeuten diese? Nicht einzubetten in ein PDF sind schließlich alle Versionen.

      • Dieter sagt:

        Da mich die Anfragen von usern, die konvertierte Fonts bei DAFONT oder sonstwo heruntergeladen habe, und sich dann bei mir regelmäßig über einen angeblichen „Kopierschutz“ beschwerten, habe ich die Fonts alle einzeln nochmals überprüft. Bei allen Fonts mit dem Prefix DS ist „Embedding allowed“. Sollten bei bestimmten Anwendungen trotzdem Probleme auftreten, bitte im Zweifelsfall den True Type Font installieren und den Open Type Font deinstallieren.
        Die DS-Fonts haben in der Regel auch einen erweiterten Zeichensatz (Freefont) mit zahlreichen Ligaturen.
        Bitte verschonen Sie mich bitte mit Anfragen, warum einzelne Fonts Probleme bereiten. In diesem Fall empfehle ich Ihnen, auf gewerbliche Fonts zurückzugreifen. Alle bei mir vorhandenen Fonts sind für eine Fontgröße zwischen 6 (ggf. 5) Punkt und 72 Punkt optimiert! Wenn man Fonts über diesen Bereich hinaus vergrößert oder verkleinert, können sich naturgemäß Darstellungsprobleme ergeben. Das hat aber ausschließlich mathematische Gründe. Erwarten Sie jezt von mir aber keine wissenschaftlich Erklärung sondern belegen ggf. einen Leistungskurs Mathematik.

  80. Hello Mr. Steffman,
    I am an independent hand draped couture clothing designer.
    I work one on one with clients to hand drape and sew wedding dresses and special occasion dresses for them.
    I am just launching my second website, with which I hope to elevate my web presence and brand identity a bit from what people know me as, which is a designer who works almost exclusively with repurposed vintage materials, (which you could see on my old website: http://www.urchinredesign.com) to a new site which I am building under my name: http://www.soniakasparian.com .
    I ran across your free fonts while looking for typography to adapt into my name for my site (and for a local fashion show that was asking for my logo…which of course I don’t have, as I’ve never needed one) that I thought associated with the feel of where I hope to take the clothing. ( I don’t currently have labels or other collateral since everything is hand made and I don’t have plans to mass produce)
    I ran across your Morgan font, which I really like quite a bit.
    It’s strong, and graphically satisfying, yet lyrical.
    I found out after laying out the typography that although its free, its not for commercial use. Is there any possible way to allow its use for commercial use?
    I dont really have a source for funds, which is why I was looking for free fonts to adapt….
    Please feel free to take a look at my two sites, see what you think, and let me know if that would be possible.
    Best regards,
    Sonia Kasparian

  88. Dear Mr Steffman,

    Firstly, apologies, I have no German, only English. Like everyone else I’ve fallen a bit in love with your work and am seeking your permission to use it – in my case, your Romantiques type :).

    I am hoping to build a career in illustration and have recently finished my first ebook. Your Romantiques type works beautifully with my aesthetic and story themes. I found it on ‚1001 fonts‘ where it is marked as ‚free for commercial use‘ and the licence information indicates that it is ok to use in a commercial context, however when I read about you, you state clearly that your work is not intended for commercial purposes.

    It is because of this discrepancy that I write to seek your clarification/permission on the use of Romantiques for a commercial purpose and if permission is granted, your advice on how I may credit your work :)

    Kind regards

    Dear Mr. Steffmann.
    I admire his work a lot. I am a graphic design student from Argentina. I want to start a personal project of handmade notebooks. For the logo itself, I would like to use their typographic font „Louisianne“.

    Hello M. Steffmann ,

    I’m currently trying to create the design of the main sign of a friend restaurant (a small restaurant, almost a diner) and I’d like to use your Celtic Hand font which is very appropriate for his restaurant.
    I was wondering if you could allow a commercial use in this context ?

    I am the adviser of a public high school yearbook in the USA. We are interested in using your Coaster font for the cover of our 2015 yearbook. This is a school publication that will have a very limited (less than 500 copies) run. We are not seeking to make a profit off of your font, and have no intentions of using it beyond this year’s book or for any promotional or for-profit enterprises.

    Can you grant us permission to use the font in this context?

    Sincerely,

    Kurt Sigmon

    Hello Mr. Steffmann,

    at first, I would like to congratulate you for your fine aesthetical work and research on fonts, and thank you very much for that.
    As the others.. I’ve some problems with license for commercial use, because I’d like use your fonts for my logo creation purposes. So I’d like to ask your permission to use someone of them (especially „Chelsea“ I like it). I think it would be a good thing if people can reading and appreciate „Chelsea“, for exemple on a brand label, instead of usual and boring „Sans“ or „Arial“. Obviusly I would be careful to credit you as the source of the font design.
    Best regards,
    Marco

  103. Tony sagt:

    Mr.Steffmann,

    Your fonts are just wonderful, they are the best collection I have seen and all the more remarkable thay they are all from one man.

    I have just spent three days downloading all of them to decide which I would keep. I did notice that perhaps 1 in 10 seems incomplete though? Such as this one:

    http://moorstation.org/typoasis/designers/steffmann/samples/z/zent.htm

    Where the front page shows a complete alphabet, but the downloaded fonts are missing some letters. Please could you tell me if that is correct, or is there a problem with the uploaded files? I only ask as one of the fonts will open as ttf, but the otf says the file is corrupted, even though I downloaded it twice to ensure there was a problem in the file and not just a corrupted download.

    Thank you again for the most magical fonts I’ve ever seen!

    • Dieter sagt:

      I am very sorry, but some fonts have not had a complete alphabet.
      Dieter

      • Tony sagt:

        Dear Dieter,

        That is perfectly OK, I just wanted to make sure there was no problems with the downloads, your work is so beautiful, that I wanted to make sure the copies I had were as they were meant to be.

        I have now downloaded them all and kept most of them, you must be incredibly talented to be able to make so many fonts and to be able to make them look so good. I have been collecting fonts for over 15 years now and almost half of the fonts I have kept on my computer are done by you!

        Will you be making any more in the future? I do hope that you will!

    Sehr geehrter Herr Steffmann,

    zuerst finde ich es fantastisch, dass jemand soviel Arbeit und Energie verwendet, um auch alte Schriften zu erhalten. Ich möchte mich heute persönlich an Sie wenden, um zu verstehen, unter welchen Voraussetzungen ich Ihre Schriftart Königsberger Gotisch für den Druck von Schmuckurkunden verwenden darf. Bisher wurden die Urkunden von einem Graphiker von Hand erstellt, der aber nun in Ruhestand geht und die jüngeren Kollegen möchten diese Urkunden aus handgeschöpften Papier nicht übernehmen. Die o.g. Schriftart kommt der Originalschrift sehr nahe, weshalb ich diese gerne verwenden würde.

    Liebe Grüße aus Odenthal Neschen

    Ich wollte ihnen erstmal zu den tollen Schriften gratulieren, da ich grade an einem neuen Shop -mit Produkt Designer – arbeite und mich in dem Rahmen auch mit den Lizenzen beschäftigte bin ich nun zum ersten mal auf ihrer Seite gelandet. Zu meiner Schande muss ich gestehen, das ich mich was das anging bisher mit „100% Kostenlos“ „zufrieden gegeben“ und nicht weiter recherchiert habe wo die Schriften herkommen, oder ob es doch Einschränkungen gibt.
    So habe ich heute festgestellt, das viele meiner Lieblingsschriften aus ihrer Feder stammen.Tannenberg, Titania, Nougat, Subway, Plakat Fraktur, die grobe Gotische… wunderschöne Schriften, auch die English Towne -Imho eine der besten „Englischen“ zum plotten (Technisch wg. der kräftigen Linienstärken, aber auch vom harmonischen Gesamteindruck her) So habe ich mir letzte Woche die Buchstaben z.T geglättet und zu einem schneidbaren Font gepuzzelt und da ich das zum ersten mal gemacht habe, ist mir nochmal klar geworden, was das für eine komplexe Arbeit ist.

    Die ich ihre Schriften bisher sehr gerne benutzt habe und auch gerne weiter für meinen kleinen Aufklebershop (Hundeaufkleber) nutzen würde, wollte ich sie fragen ob sie mir das gestatten würden ?

    • Dieter sagt:

      Hallo Frau Gruber,

      die Schriften stammen nicht aus meiner Feder, insofern bin ich nicht der Urheber. Ich habe die Schriften lediglich teilweise digitalisiert bzw. um den vollständigen Zeichensatz ergänzt und als PC-Zeichensatz zusammengestellt. Die Urheber sind alle bereits länger als 75 Jahre tot oder unbekannt. Insofern sind die Schriften alle frei verwendbar. Ich wünsche Ihnen viel Spaß und bedanke mich für Ihren Beitrag.
      P.S.: Im Laufe des Jahres werde ich die Bergischen Streifzüge 5 Burscheid/Wermelskirchen – Eifgenbachweg und 6 Odenthal – Grafen- und Mönchsweg angehen. Ich warte nur noch auf den Frühling! Und natürlich werde ich den bereits erkundeten Feuer- und Flamme-Weg in Bergneustadt angehen, sobald das Wetter es zulässt.

    Hallo Herr Steffmann,

    heute fand ich Ihre Schriften auf 1001Fonts und war sofort begeistert. Schon als Kind verschlang ich alles was ich zum Lesen fand, und die ersten Ausflüge waren Bücher in altdeutscher Schrift. Da kamen nun viele Erinnerungen hoch.

    Im Leben bin ich – auch gesundheitlich – nun an einem Punkt angelangt, wo ich beruflich nur noch das machen will was mir am Herzen liegt. Bislang war es nur ein Hobby und die Ergebnisse wurden verschenkt. Es sind Karten mit kurzen Texten und Zitaten. Geplant sind zudem auch kleine Geschenke-Bücher mit Fotos und Text sowie eine Webseite, wo man dies auch ansehen kann.

    Auf der Seite des Fontsanbieter waren Ihre Schriften als frei für den kommerziellen Gebrauch angegeben, jedoch las ich eben auf Ihrer Webseite, dass dem nicht so ist.

    Nach Durchsicht der anderen Kommentare ist meine Frage nun, ob Sie es mir dennoch gestatten, einige Ihrer Schriften zu verwenden? Das würde mir sehr viel bedeuten!

    In fact, the logo has another font (not yours) but it flips as if it was a card &, in the back side, it has a phrase. I want to use this font for that phrase.
    He does that for a living, so it’s a commercial website, that’s why I want to ask you if I can use it.

Relying on your previous online responses to requests for commercial permission on this site, requesting permission here is all that is required. I would like to use the font in the next 30 days. If you have any objections to my proposed use, I’d greatly appreciate it if you can notify me within this timeframe, so I can make alternate arrangements (although I really wouldn’t want to do that!), as your works are the best.

  156. Thank you kindly for creating such lovely fonts. I am very interested in using some of them to produce chalk drawings with inspirational messages. I would like to sell my drawings on Etsy. I am a stay-at-home mom of four and my husband does not have retirement saved. I would like to help him retire some day and also have enough to give to poor children and oppressed people groups living in poorer countries. I look forward to your response.

    Sehr geehrter Herr Steffmann,
    Ich habe mit einem Freund im Rahmen eines Schulprojekts ein Computerspiel entwickelt. Ich war für die Grafik verantwortlich und habe in einer Szene ihren Font AnglicanText verwendet da er mir sehr gut gefiel. Nun haben wir uns überlegt, dass wir vielleicht eine Website machen wollen, auf der man sich das Spiel herunterladen kann. Wir würden dort gerne auch einen Spenden-Button einfügen also wäre das dann ja eine kommerzielle Nutzung. Uns würde es sehr freuen wenn sie uns die Erlaubnis dazu geben. Über eine Antwort würde ich mich sehr freuen!
    Viele Grüße Max

    Dear Mr. Steffmann,
    I am an Australian children’s self publishing author and have noticed your design Goudy Initialen.
    Its perfect for my environmental children’s book. I would like to use one of your letters at the beginning of each chapter. I am asking for permission as I have noticed they are royalty free for personal use. Your artwork is beautiful and it would enhance my children’s book. My goal is to educate children about looking after our planet and each other. It would be an honour to use your beautiful fonts. And I would love to send you the book after publication. Please let me know if you will alow me the use.Otherwise I will search or design something. I am organising the printing of the book as we speak.
    Kind regards,

    Good Afternoon Mr Dieter Steffmann,

    I hope everything is good with you!
    My name is Ana Barreto and I’m a young portuguese graphic designer trying to initiate a freelance career. Currently i’m working on a project for a starting company based on traditional gifts that you can send to friends or family who are far away. I’ve found it very emotive and while i was searching for a font that could complement the image of the product i’ve met Cloister Black and now i can’t continue without it! Would you please be able to allow me to use it on this project?

    Thank You for the Attention.

    Dear Mr. Steffmann,
    Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Mitch Gelman and I am about to start my very first business. In searching the internet for a font to be used on my upcoming website, business cards, stationary, t-shirts, possible book etc… I came across your „Express“ Font. This is an absolutely „exquisite“ piece of artwork by you and one of the most attractive fonts I’ve ever seen. It would be an absolute honor to use it for my start-up consulting line of work. That being said, I am kindly asking for your permission to do so. If this is possible, I would be ever so grateful and will definitely send you nothing but positive energy in return. I look forward to your response at your convenience. Until then, I wish you the best of good health and good fortune, and I hope you have a wonderful day! Best Regards, Mitch Gelman

    Hi Dieter
    I am a sign maker who makes signs, banner, vehicle graphics, etc.
    I am in the process of building a web site where users can design their own signs online.
    We would then create the signs from their designs.
    I would like to include some of your fonts in the list of fonts they can use in their designs.
    They would not be able to download or copy the fonts.
    Would you allow me to use some in the web site.
    I can put an acknowledgement to you on the site.

    Hello, I saw your font ‚yonkers‘ on a site that said free for commercial use, so i used it on a t shirt design, that I will be selling. However, I see that the font might not be commercial free after all. Is it ok if I use this font on the t shirts I will sell? I’ve already printed them out. It’s only one word on the t shirt, and the other words are in a different font. Please let me know, thanks!

  164. Adriana Rodríguez sagt:

    Mr. Steffmann,

    I work for an indie film making company based in Mexico. We just finished our first feature film. It’s a medieval story. We would like to ask permission to use the font „Goudy Medieval“ for an epigraph at the beginning and a legend at the end.

    To do so, I want to ask you if we can re-kern some symbols such as the interrogation marks (which in this particular case seem to be very close together with the first word of the question). And also, as spanish speakers, the dots in the „i“ tend to look like accent marks, could we substitute the dots in the „i“ with the regular dot from this font?

    We would properly credit you in the end credits.
    This movie is to be exhibited in film festivals and eventually have a theatrical release.

    Kind regards,

    Adriana Rodríguez (México)

    I live in Milwaukee, WI. I am trying to translate the above referenced document for my pastor but I am unsure the best (and most affordable) way to render the text cleanly into English. The text appears to be some form of Fraktur–though I don’t know which.

    Would you happen to know which font type this is and perhaps how I might go about translating it per above?

    Thanks so much for any insight!

    Hello,

    I would like to ask permission to use the Rothenburg font for our groups demo cd, it was brought to my attention that this font was actually, not free, for commercial use (unlike what 1001fonts.com and cooltext.com claims that, it is) after we started using it in a few places. We will be having our own logo designed soon, however, we can only seem to agree on this particular font, at this time. The font will be used on demo cd’s and stickers as promotion, used as a basic logo on the web until we can raise enough to hire an artist to design a more permanent logo. Very little revenue will actually come from the logo at this point, however, we wanted to make sure we got your permission to use the font…

    Hello Dieter,

    I am a graphic design student and I’m designing a book cover and one sheet for a client. Since I’m a student, I go on to Dafont.com very frequently for free fonts since I can’t afford to spend money on every font I like. This is where I came across your „Honey Script“ font and it’s practically perfect for my project. I saw it was 100% free so I downloaded it for use but noticed there was no license and realized you said that your fonts are only free for private use only. I also read that you provide permission to use for commercial use upon request? Is this correct? If so, that is very generous of you to do, and would love if I had your permission to use your font. If I do get your permission to use your font, do I need to document it in any way?

    Thank you for all your work,

    I wanted to inquire about a license or permission to use your Old English Five font for a majority of the name of my business, mainly to be used at the top of the website. I would be using your letters for part of the name of my business. It’s possible the use of the font would be used for promotional purposes ( i.e. a large decal of the name of my business on my car) and possibly on some packaging, though unlikely. I would provide information about your font, and give credit to you as author on the website.

    The business is Chaos Chocolate Inc, located in NY, USA. This is a small, recently established (July, 2015) on-line based chocolate business.

    May we have your permission to use your font for free as mentioned above?

    Thank you for your consideration,
    Meghan Voyce

    Hello Mr. Steffmann,

    My wife and I truly admire your work. We run a small (me and my wife) home based business selling handmade items for the wedding industry.
    We are asking you for commercial permission to use the font: flaemische-kanzleischrift to make laser cut table numbers and other items. It would be a true blessing for us.

    Thank you so much,
    Allan and Luisa Rabanales

    Mr. Steffmann,
    I am a freelance artist and found your font „Honeyscript“ on http://www.dafont.com which says it is free. I would like to reach out and ask if you would be willing to give me permission to use your font for some website and print designs I have made for a client?
    Thank you so much,

    Mr. Steffmann,

    I’m a Freelance Artist that makes Greeting Cards and I got your Augusta Font off of a free font website where it said it was free for commercial use as well as private. Regardless, I wanted to make sure to ask you if I’m allowed to use your Augusta Font for a client for her Program she wanted me to make on the back of her card.

    Thank you,

  221. Hello Mr Steffmann!

    I’m Melissa and I’m an indie game developer from Brazil, and I really think your fonts are awesome! By the way nice to meet you! =)
    I’m currently developing a free game application and I would like to use the Augusta font if possible! In dafont.com your font is stated as free for commercial use, but researching further I ended up here and got the feeling it really is free but for private use only.
    Well, we do not have the money to invest in this project now, so everyone is working for free on our free time… I would like to know if we could use it in our game for free and if we do make any success (fingers crossed) we’ll make sure to make up to everyone who could help us! =D

  222. Remo.D sagt:

    I see a lot of questions about licensing and I am confused myself. Too bad such wonderful work can’t be fully utilized for lack of clarity on the legal status.
    I wouold suggest that Mr. Steffmann to do one of these three things:

    1. Start selling commercial licences for his font (and notify the many font-sites that state they are 100% free)
    2. Make them 100% free (possibly with an attribution clause)

    Of course I would prefer the 2nd option :)

  223. loulou sagt:

    Hello Mr. Steffmann

    Since I’ve seen your font „Goudy Initialen“, I wanted to ask you for permission of using it for my clothinglabel. It’s not necessarily for commercial use, but I welcome it to have your OK anyway.

    Thank you in advance!

    Sehr geehrter Herr Steffmann,

    ich arbeite gerade am Cover meines ersten Ebooks das die praktische Anwendung der ritterlichen Tugenden im Alltag behandelt. Auf der Suche nach einer passenden Schrift für den Titel bin ich auf Ihre Font „Gutenberg Textura“ gestoßen. Wie meine Vorgänger möchte auch ich Sie fragen ob diese kommerzielle Nutzung meinerseits für Sie in Ordnung ist. Auf Ihrer Website haben Sie angegeben dass Sie sich für Geschichte interessieren, wenn sie wollen schicke ich Ihnen gerne ein kostenloses Exemplar zu wenn ich die Arbeiten beendet habe.

    Ich bewundere Ihr Engagement und Ihre Großzügigkeit mit der Sie Ihre Schriften teilen.

    Freundliche Grüße aus Bayern

    I’ve been using your beautiful Marketing Script font on a project for a broadcast television show (a one time special of BBC comedy outtakes for Christmas) and on double checking the license information have found your information here that your fonts are free for personal use. Would you be happy for me to use the font on this project? Thanks very much for your time and beautiful work.

    Sehr geehrter Herr Steffmann,

    ich arbeite an der Website für den neuen Betrieb meines Bruders.
    Bei der Auswahl der Schriften dafür haben wir auf „http://www.dafont.com“ nach 100% freien Schriften gesucht. Dabei haben wir Ihr „Kaiserzeit Gotisch“ gefunden, das uns direkt begeisterte und für die Seiten-Überschriften ausgewählt wurde.
    Bei der Zusammenstellung der Danksagungen habe ich beim Besuch Ihrer Webseite nun feststellen müssen, daß Ihre Schriften nur für den privaten Gebrauch frei verwendbar sind.
    Ich bitte Sie daher um Erlaubnis „Kaiserzeit Gotisch“ für die website der „Rentsch & Sichard Bildhauerkunst und Malerei GbR“ verwenden zu dürfen.

    Sir,

    I am requesting your approval to use your „Cardinal“ font for my comic book store logo for my web store front as well as on business cards, posters, flyers. Thank you and have a great day.

  232. Colin Houck sagt:

    Mr. Steffmann,

    I recently came across your creation „Fancy Card Text,“ and have preliminarily used it to design a mock logo for a friends as-yet established business restoring vintage straight razors here in Eugene, Oregon. However, we both love this font so much that we would like to have it be the font for the permanent logo. It is truly a work of art, as is all of the work from you that I have seen so far. I cannot find this font for sale with a commercial license though, so I am here to ask your permission to use this font for the logo. My friend’s budget is non-existent at this point, and I am providing my services free of charge, so neither of us is in the position to pay a hefty licensing fee. Will you grant permission to use? And if so what are your conditions, if any. I thank you in advance for your time and consideration, and wish you the best.

    Sincerely,
    C. Colin Houck

    Lieber Herr Steffmann,
    Sie kann Englisch verstehen, und Englisch viel leichter für mich geht, so weiter auf Englisch schreibe ich. Untschuldegung aber Deutsch sehr langsam für mich geht.

    I like Flaemische Kanzeischrift a lot, but – if I may say so – the capital ‚L‘ is a bit lame next to the other capital letters. It is too plain. Would a curl as on the ‚D‘ or ‚M‘ give it the appropriate elegance for this font?

    Hello Mr. Steffmann,

    First of all, thank you for your admirable compilation of Fonts. I love it! I am working as freelance designer and seen your fonts on 1001fonts and must say that you are realy talented! I am interested in using Titania, Klarissa in my logo and graphic designs, but other Fonts to in a time. Can you please tell me that if I use your Fonts free for commercial use and modify some shape just a little (for example: change perspective of Fonts or use effect of Arch and such), use them as wordmark and add some dots or something in my designs… does the Fonts in that case needs to be purchased?

    I am asking because there it says „Modification not allowed“! I am only talking about Shapes of fonts in designs and not the Files itself. Besides the Licence offcorse you would be credited as designer of Fonts at the end!

    Thank you!

    Hello Herr Steffmann

    I am rewriting our technical publications. For the warning symbols there are are available graphics in the internet. However, this is very inconvienient as we will overload the documents with many copies of the same pictogram. My solution is to use your type face ‚Hazard signs‘.

    We are therefor requesting permission to use the typface in our documentation. In addition I would like permission to add one or two symbols that are not in your set. For this I would use TypeTool3.

    Dear Mr. Steffmann, first of all, your work is incredible. Thank you very much for your fonts. I love them. Absolutely.

    I’m a spanish writer, I’m ending my first saga (young adult, fantasy, sword and sorcery books) and I would like to use six of your fonts for the covers, maps and few sentences inside the book: these fonts are Becker, Cardinal, Tipographer Rotunda, Rosemary Roman, Steelplate Textura and Augusta. I am going to autoedit (Kindle, Createspace), but… it is commercial use. Can you give me the permission to use them? Obviously with credit to you as font designer. I began to use them two years ago because at 1001fonts said they were free for comercial use, but now I know they aren’t. I am about to finish my books (and autoedit them next year) and I would like to use your fonts because I love them and I can’t imagine some things with another font. I hope they are affordable for me. Please reply, and thank you very much.

    The resulting font would be released as a free font under the SIL open font license (http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?site_id=nrsi&id=OFL) and marked as a derivative work with yourself as the original author, both in the documentation and in the license and description field of the font itself.

Maybe, later, I would print it on flyers or other supports. So it may be for a broader use. How is the best practice: your agreement, a donation, a contract with you?

    Eine Kommentar für Dieter Steffmann

    Hello, Mr. Steffmann.

    I am a 33-year-old Brazilian guy, although living in Italy that always had and still has a passion for calligraphy. I would like to know why it is so difficult to submit a font through a limited-time computer program such as FontLab, Fontographer and even Scanahand, just to mention some? I am especially a lover of Blackletter as for personal reasons, so I installed a lot of them on my computer, but I sadly found out that your font Courtrai (what a pity!) capital letters A and O have not got all variants with diacritical marks at all, at least I cannot see it, if they there are. Then my question is: can I add diacritical marks to these letters of the Courtrai family, as an example, through the Programs mentioned above? Should I rename the font or still use the original name?

    I am making these questions because I do not want to get involved in legal problems of any kind. There are a lot of fonts out there in the Net that are incomplete and still they sell it as free and complete. It is so wrong that they do it, but it is worse when they do it for money, even when it comes from a professional calligrapher, typographer or typesetter. In the http://www.1001fonts.com website you said that fonts are to be free to everyone, but it seems that it is not all fontmakers‘ thoughts. I am of this view too and I completely agree in number, grade and gender, as to say, with you.

    One more thing: I added you and the http://www.1001fonts.com creator, Maximilian Bloch to my Facebook page and he has on Google+ addressed me to your site to write all my doubts about Fonts, but beyond of it I would like to add you two guys to my page, but how do I do this? I added you first but I never got an answer.
    Your fonts are so wonderful that I want some tips on how to improve on this field, just for free, without having any problems when doing it.

    The last thing: I am having a problem of font and character map display on http://www.1001fonts.com webpage with the passage of tab from another very inactive and no background at all. The lower Ads gray bar takes almost over half of the page and all buttons, font displays, names, and everything else get mixed up. Help me please.

    Best regards

    Hello Sir,
    I’m using your font „Old London“ for my typography class project, I’m requested to make a specimen. But I need more information about it, such as founders, publishers, date of publishing, usages, some basic information only. Thank you.

    Dear Mr Steffmann,

    I am a young French guy, I just created my first board game and would like to commercialize it.
    I would like to use font „Marker Felt“ to the name of the game.

    I have seen at this address: http://www.1001fonts.com/users/steffmann/
    the trade is permitted, is that this is also the case for my project?

    I am willing to pay for its use but I can not find somewhere for to pay the font.

    This font is very well for my game, thank you for having created.

    Thank you very much and Thanks a lot for your response.

    Best regards.

    Hello Mr Steffmann! I work in the clearance dept. at Warner Bros. Television in the USA, and one of our scripted television series would like to request permission to use one your Kalender font in some signage they’re created for use in the show. Typically, we’d send our standard release form to the copyright owners/ font designers for these types of requests. Would it be possible to contact me with your direct email address, so I can send our release to you to review? My email address is arika.goldschmid@warnerbros.com. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

    Hello. Thanks for making your fonts available.

    I operate a website at http://fontwire.com where users can try lots of different fonts and dingbats, adjust colors and sizes, apply effects, create mashups with their own photos and clipart, and post directly to Facebook, email, or download. Nothing is sold at Fontwire and fonts are not downloadable however advertising is present.

    I’m requesting permission to post a collection of your fonts in a dedicated area of Fontwire as I have done for other font authors. ( example: http://fontwire.com/?collection=NicksFonts&text=Nicks%20Fonts )

    Each font will include a link to 1001fonts if the user want to download it.

    Thank You

    Dieter:
    I am writing a Christian booklet primarily to be given away in our prison ministry but will be sold occasionally. The book is only 43 pages and will only be using it for drop down caps for the first letter in the 11 chapters first paragraphs. Would there be a charge for this and how do I go about getting the caps downloaded The one I am interested in is „Goudy Initialen.“ I will be sure to give proper credits for the caps.
    Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
    Sincerely,

    Thanks

    Mr. Steffman, would it be okay if I used your American Text font to create new characters/glyphs for a new language I am making? It’s for a fantasy book I am writing. Some of the glyphs will remain the same (such as n, o, etc). Of course I would give you credit for the original font and state that my glyphs were based off of yours.

    Thank you!

    Hello Mr Steffmann! Greetings from New Zealand!

    I’m a graphic designer/photographer, recently I came across your Old London typeface and love it! I want to use this font commercially for clothing I’m looking at getting screen printed. Just wondering what I need to do to be able to use this font for commercial use?

    Thank you!

    Hello Herr Steffmann,
    Thank you for Sharing these fonts and images. I am curious about the history of the zodiac icons. May I use your Gemini image of the two boys in tunics on a label for an oil product I mixed for nail fungus. I am a nurse who specializes in foot care.
    I would like to sell this product to supplement my retirement after divorcing and raising three children.
    Many thanks,

    Dear Mr. Steffman,

    Sorry to bother you, please accept my sincere apologies.

    I am a young entrepreneur and just decide to start my small business.

    I look for free fonts for my first design work on the internet to start my business. I found your Medici Text font is great and I love it very much. I want to use it in my design work, so I write to you to ask would you tell me whether I can use the font for commercial purpose for free?

    Have a great day!!!

    Sincerely,

  298. Dear Mr. Steffmann,
    Thank you for your beautiful fonts. I am an artist from Washington state, USA. I am working with a writer to illustrate a set of children’s books that the writer will publish as gifts for her 6 children and 12 grandchildren. Her project is on a very small budget. The writer does not have plans to sell the books at this time. I would like to ask for your permission to use your beautiful font named „zierinitialen1“ for use in the book titles. The titles would be written on the book covers, the book spines, and the title pages.

    Also, may I ask if you would consider giving your permission for your font to be used for the same purpose if she happens to make the books for sale someday? Thank you again for making your beautiful fonts available and I am sorry not to write you in German.

    Sincerely,
    Joanna

    Dear Mr. Steffmann,

    I would like to use your font ‚Cloister Black‘ as a header for some certificates that I need to print out as a company – no commercial use is intended, tho.

    I have downloaded your font from dafont.com under a 100% free license. I want to make sure that I am allowed to operate as described above.

    Best regards,
    Alice

    Hello Herr Steffmann, greetings from England :)
    I am sorry to add to the others‘ list of requests. I downloaded your ‚Belshaw‘ font from a website with the understanding it was free for commercial use.
    I was hoping you could confirm this is the case before my mobile quiz game goes live, it will be free to download with accreditation (I can provide more details).

    Kind regards,
    David Ducker
