How to Avoid Legal Issues When Using Typefaces and Fonts in Your Small Business Logo

Every business, from startups to small businesses to the largest companies and agencies in the world, must have a strong brand identity to succeed in today’s noisy marketplace.

A brand identity is more than a logo, but a strong brand starts with a memorable logo design.

Some business owners worry that the cost of logo design can be prohibitively high. Many design companies and agencies charge thousands to tens of thousands of dollars for their services. But this isn’t universally true (crowdspring’s custom logo design projects start at just $299, including all fees).

Business owners and marketers naturally worry about their design budgets, but they also often misunderstand the law on typefaces and fonts. You can face heavy fines and get into a lot of trouble if you don’t have a license to the fonts and typefaces you use.
