Using Our Fonts

Choosing the appropriate typeface for the medium will ensure your communications look their best.

If you are designing newsletters, posters, magazines, or other such publications intended largely for external audiences, you should add all of our fonts to your resources. A limited number of licenses are available for distribution.

If you are writing letters, drafting internal memos, creating PowerPoint templates, or performing other such daily tasks, Georgia and Arial are all you will need. Those typefaces are the ones used in our templates for Microsoft Office programs and both come installed on Mac and Windows operating systems.
