I get asked all the time about whether or not you can use fonts that came with your computer for commercial use. Put differently, can you use fonts that came with your computer in products you make and sell with your Silhouette or Cricut? Let’s take a look today.
Can You Use Fonts that Came with Your Computer for Commercial Use?
For Microsoft users, you’ll want to take a look at this link. This is has the information regarding fonts that came with Microsoft. For the most part, as long as you do NOT have a version of Microsoft like student, home, or non-commercial use; you can use the fonts commercially. The link is worth the read and bookmark in your computer.
If you use a Mac computer, you’ll need to look up each font in Font Book for usage. Here’s how: 1) Open Font Book and navigate to a font that came with your computer. 2) Click ‘View’, then ‘Show font info’. You can then read the license that covers the font and see if you can use it commercially.
