Are you looking to sign up for Monotype Fonts but unsure which plan is right for you?

From a free subscription to a paid plan, we have an option for every team and creative. Here’s a quick comparison between our free subscription and paid subscriptions.


Free Font Subscription

Paid Font Subscriptions

A great basic option for designers working on a small portfolio of projects or who aren’t planning on using fonts commercially. Perfect for those looking to expand their topographical expertise without breaking the bank. A  free subscription is the best no-cost way to check out Monotype Fonts.

Top benefits include:

  • Free lifetime membership to Monotype Fonts
  • Access to a base inventory of  fonts - option to upgrade to the extended inventory.
  • Limited font management features to organize a small number of projects

These plans are best for those looking to create multiple design projects and promote work commercially. If you’re working in a team, a paid subscription is the better fit.

Key features include:

  • Commercial licensing rights for the fonts you choose to use in branding and advertising
  • Unlimited access to Monotype Fonts
  • Full feature font management tools to organize by lists, folders, and tags, and more
