We plan to compete with Paperless Post and your font would be seen by a large user group. We would of course list the name of your font on the platform.

I am starting a fine art print business and I would like your permission to use the font on some of my marketing materials, specifically some stationery, packaging, stickers, postcards and website graphics.
I am more than happy to license them, but it seems from this site that perhaps permission is all that you require.
First of all, I would like to say thank you for creating beautiful fonts. Please let me know if I can use your font with your permission for free, or if not, how much would it be to license this font.
I fell in love with the minimalism and grooviness of the font Prisma. I would love to use it as a font for my lounge band. We are just starting out, but it really catches the essence we feel in our sound. Würde mich sehr freuen, und finde diese Schrift einfach perfekt. I would like to know what the license is of your font Hoedown. Because on several sites it says that its free for commercial use.
If it is not. What will the fee be? Herr Steffman, Vary nice collection of fonts. What I would like to know is what the font is at the top of this page: Kind regards, Martin D. Like the countless people before me, and the many more to come, I have fallen in love with your font collection.

Über eine Antwort würde ich mich sehr freuen! I would like to use one of your letters at the beginning of each chapter.

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. Thank you for you help. 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? Please let me know, thanks!
I work for an indie film making company based in Mexico. We just finished our first feature film. 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. We would properly credit you in the end credits.
This movie is to be exhibited in film festivals and eventually have a theatrical release. Guten Tag Herr Steffman; I am a photographer and would like to be able to incorporate Honey Script in a few of my photographs, since it is much nicer than my handwriting.

I am a young entrepreneur and have recently started dealing in personal accessories like desk clocks, writing instruments, etc. I am in love with the Kaiserzeit Gotisch Font and want to request you to see if I can use this font for my logo. This logo will be carried on the website, products, etc.

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 fonts. We will be having our own logo designed soon, however, we can only seem to agree on this particular font, at this time. 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….
Würden Sie uns bitten sagen, wie wir dies tun können? I have a small graphics business out of my home and love your font Campanile, as well as Titania, Honey Script and Benjamin Franklin.

I have written an entirely fictional, surrealist novel based on the figure of Hildegard von Bingen, and I am wondering if I may use Goudy Initialen for drop caps at the beginning of some of the chapters.
If so, how may I go about downloading a version that can be imbedded in a pdf file? The font works now. Could you please clarify whether I have your permission to use this in my novel, which I am self-publishing, and planning to sell? Ich bin selbständige Designerin und entwerfe soeben Turnbeutel für Italien Fussball Fans, diese werden zum Verkauf sein.

Vielleicht nehmen wir auch mal eine CD auf, die wir bei der Gelegenheit verkaufen wollen. Unsere Bitte wäre, dass Sie uns die Genehmigung geben, die Schrifttype Hansen auch für kommerzielle Dinge anwenden zu dürfen. Es würde uns sehr freuen.

Hi I am getting stated on selling online scrapbooks. I was on dafont. The site has them under free. Can I use them in my art? This would mean that I will have to add color and change them in other ways as well. So are they commercial free with no resections?
Hope to hear back from you. Steffenman, I would like to use QuentinCaps in a sign for my high-end tailor shop. I hope this will be all right since it is exactly what I am looking for. Please let me know if this is possible. I also read that you provide permission to use for commercial use upon request?

Thank you so much for your time. 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. I would provide information about your font, and give credit to you as author on the website. This is a small, recently established July, on-line based chocolate business. I am working on an open world sandbox game and we have decided that your Devinne Swash font works really well with the menu screen options. We would like to obtain a commercial license for this font with your permission.
If you would like to learn more about our project or have any questions, please send me an e-mail and I will answer any concerns you might have. When our designer downloaded the font from freefonts. Now that link is not available, nor is any information about a license for commercial use. Can you please let me know what the fee would be to use the font one time only for commercial use? Thank you very much for your help with this.
I would like to say thank you for superb and admirable font collection you have created. You are a great inspiration to many people. I am attempting to do some freelance work designing logos and graphics, and would like to ask for your permission on using some of the fonts for this purpose. Your consideration to allow me to use your fonts will be greatly appreciated.
I truly adore your talent! Thank you for all your work and for sharing with those less fortunate. Wishing you all the best in life, Cindy.
Hi Dieter, Would you consider for me to use any of your fonts to make sentimental quotes for vinyl transfers or iron-on transfers for home decor items that I make and sell part-time from my home? There would be no mass production nor production for other businesses. Just a one woman show that loves to do crafts in my spare time and share them with other women that like to decorate on a budget. I would proudly give credit on any of your fonts used and tag my completed projects with your name as the designer of the fonts.
Would this be a possibility? Thank you kindly for your consideration. Steffmann, I have received your email. Many thanks for your reply! May life continue to fill your heart with inspiration and creativity in all your endeavors.
Best Wishes in all you do, Cindy Stanley. Hello Sir — I like all of your fonts but really like one called Angel. I am not able to download it. Is there a way you can send it to me? What the lincense for you fonts, and i can use for comercial use in videos? I am interested in using it for a Business Logo. I am sure you get this question a lot since your fonts are amazing; can I freely use it in a logo? If it is not free to utilize, what steps must I go through to get permission?
I am loving your font called Honey Script, It fits perfectly in my design for a window sticker in Antwerp, may I please use it freely.
The sticker will be up there for a month. Till the opening early October. You are my last hope.. I was hoping to use some of your fonts on pictures I have taken and sell them.
Inspirational words and phrases. I am trying to make a living of this and I find your fonts so beautiful. Thank you for your time. I actually found many amazing fonts belong to you on fonts for free commercial use. I am the owner of a very small custom apparel and decal shop in Northern Colorado. I have looked through your fonts and I really like several 53 to be exact. May I please have your written permission to use your fonts in my work? I specialize in Rhinestone designs, but occasionally customers want text or initials.
I am designing a decorative tin can for a year-old American company. Their logo is very compatible with Honey Script. I would like to add a phrase to their tin design using Honey Script. Please confirm or let me know if it is available for licensing for this purpose. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
If you would like more information, please contact me. Dear Mr Steffmann, I was wondering if I could gain your permission to use your font Hoedown for commercial use ie. I am a graphic artist and illustrator. I saw your marvelous fonts on dafont. I am from the UK and I want to start my own small business company. So I hopefully get your permission to use your font for commercial use.
I really appreciate your time and consideration to my request. Thanks a lot, Mr. The font will be used for the title of the book. I was wondering if you could give me the authorization to use the font for my logo? I would only use it for the logo on my website and business cards. I would really appreciate your help and being able to use this great font! Looking forward to your reply. My partner and I are trying to start an educational program for children which focuses on reducing the gap in STEM Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education for public school children.
May we use your font for our logo? We are a small independent game studio from Canada that creates mobile phone games for all ages. Steffenman, I am beginning to take in some small graphic design commissions as a hobby and to support myself while unemployed. I wonder if i may have your permission to use your Tintoretto and Honey Script fonts in my work?
Thank you for your consideration. 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: It would be a true blessing for us. 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, Emery Dingee. By the way nice to meet you! I see a lot of questions about licensing and I am confused myself.
I wouold suggest that Mr. Steffmann to do one of these three things:. Of course I would prefer the 2nd option. 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.
Kann es aber im Web nicht finden…. Is there a way I can purchase it? Is it possible to have your email address because I have a question about your honeyscript typo, that i would like to buy for commercial purpose? Let me know, thank you.
Wir sind auf eine Webseite gestossen, auf der angegeben wird das die Saddlebag auch für die kommerzielle Nutzung frei zu verfügung steht: Uns würde es sehr freuen ihre Saddlebag für unsere Webseite verwenden zu dürfen.
Would you be happy for me to use the font on this project? Thanks very much for your time and beautiful work. Thank you and have a great day. 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.
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. I am working on a project for a friend as a kickstarter for what i love to do.
I cannot find any font for commercial I like and Augusta is perfect for the cover. How do I go about obtaining the license to use this font for to sell her book and what are your conditions, if any. Herr Steffmann, I admire your work and that you are a true craftsman. Thank you for sharing your gift. 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.
It is too plain. I will just be using the lowercase a for my logo for clothing company. I have checked out every font you have, I like Olde the best. Steffmann, I really like your fonts! You have made some beautiful ones! May I have permission to use them? In particular at this time, I am interested in using Honey Script for a blog, and since I want to use it in the name, it may be used elsewhere as a logo in the future. Thank you for sharing your talent!
First of all, thank you for your admirable compilation of Fonts. I am working as freelance designer and seen your fonts on fonts 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: 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! Hello, mr Dieter Steffmann. Can I use Blackwood Castle font in my small flash game?
Game is free for end players. Do you give me permission to use your Prisma font on a t-shirt? There is a possibility that the t-shirt will be sold. I have only one question, what do you mean by personnel use only? I sell nothing, i do not have even advertising. Diverse Websites zeichnen die Schrift als lizenzfrei auch für kommerzielle Nutzung aus allerdings möchte ich mich lieber absichern.
Deshalb meine Frage, darf ich die Schrift nutzen oder was würde die Schrift kosten? Steffmann I love your font titled Kaiserzeit Gotisch and wanted to use it for a logo design, however, on trying to export the file, it says there are licensing restrictions. Would you be so kind as to give me permission to use this font? I know that it can be used in a commercial for it. Ask to be sure. If put to commercial use? 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. 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. I am working as a designer making catalogs and books. Then I would like to ask for your permission to use it for a catalog. It was confusing how the font is free on DaFont but not really clear on the use on your site.
I am writing to inquire about the availability of your font, Deutsche Zierschrift, for commercial purposes. How may I obtain permission to do so? Bitte um kurze Info. My hobby is digital scrapbooking. I participate to a few scrapbookingforums.. In one of them we thank the members for their participation with little gifts digital scrapbookingkits that we the administrators make self…I would like to know if it is allowed to use your dingbats fonts for the confection of these kits….
I thank you for your attention and support for our litlle forum Andréa Tanzer-Herchuel Belgium. Please let me know. Thank you in advance! Am I able to use a few of your fonts in my recipe book?

Ich würde gerne die Victorinas Initals für die einzelnen Kapitel für mein Märchenbuch benutzen.
Ich möchte um eine Erlaubnis bitten oder was es mich ungefähr kosten würde. Steffmann, first of all, your work is incredible. Thank you very much for your fonts. 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 hope they are affordable for me.
The Phoenicians, in turn, taught her worship to the people of Cythera. Aphrodite took on Inanna-Ishtar's associations with sexuality and procreation. Nineteenth century classical scholars had a general aversion to the idea that ancient Greek religion was at all influenced by the cultures of the Near East,  but, even Friedrich Gottlieb Welcker , who argued that Near Eastern influence on Greek culture was largely confined to material culture,  admitted that Aphrodite was clearly of Phoenician origin.
Aphrodite's most common cultic epithet was Ourania , meaning "heavenly",   but this epithet almost never occurs in literary texts, indicating a purely cultic significance. He asserts that Aphrodite Ourania is the celestial Aphrodite, born from the sea foam after Cronus castrated Uranus, and the older of the two goddesses. According to the Symposium , Aphrodite Ourania is the inspiration of male homosexual desire , specifically the ephebic eros.
Aphrodite Pandemos , by contrast, is the younger of the two goddesses: Among the Neoplatonists and, later, their Christian interpreters, Ourania is associated with spiritual love, and Pandemos with physical love desire. A representation of Ourania with her foot resting on a tortoise came to be seen as emblematic of discretion in conjugal love; it was the subject of a chryselephantine sculpture by Phidias for Elis , known only from a parenthetical comment by the geographer Pausanias.
On Cyprus, Aphrodite was sometimes called Eleemon "the merciful". A male version of Aphrodite known as Aphroditus was worshipped in the city of Amathus on Cyprus. Aphrodite's main festival, the Aphrodisia , was celebrated across Greece, but particularly in Athens and Corinth. In Athens, the Aphrodisia was celebrated on the fourth day of the month of Hekatombaion in honor of Aphrodite's role in the unification of Attica.
Pausanias records that, in Sparta, Aphrodite was worshipped as Aphrodite Areia , which means "warlike". Aphrodite was the patron goddess of prostitutes of all varieties,   ranging from pornai cheap street prostitutes typically owned as slaves by wealthy pimps to hetairai expensive, well-educated hired companions, who were usually self-employed and sometimes provided sex to their customers.
Scholars in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries believed that the cult of Aphrodite may have involved ritual prostitution ,   an assumption based on ambiguous passages in certain ancient texts, particularly a fragment of a skolion by the Boeotian poet Pindar ,  which mentions prostitutes in Corinth in association with Aphrodite.
The ancient Romans identified Aphrodite with their goddess Venus ,  who was originally a goddess of agricultural fertility, vegetation, and springtime. This syncretism greatly impacted Greek worship of Aphrodite. Aphrodite is usually said to have been born near her chief center of worship, Paphos , on the island of Cyprus , which is why she is sometimes called "Cyprian", especially in the poetic works of Sappho.
However, other versions of her myth have her born near the island of Cythera , hence another of her names, "Cytherea". According to the version of her birth recounted by Hesiod in his Theogony ,   Cronus severed Uranus' genitals and threw them behind him into the sea.
In the Iliad ,  Aphrodite is described as the daughter of Zeus and Dione. Aphrodite is consistently portrayed as a nubile, infinitely desirable adult, having had no childhood. In Book Eight of the Odyssey ,  however, the blind singer Demodocus describes Aphrodite as the wife of Hephaestus  and tells how she committed adultery with Ares during the Trojan War. Later stories were invented to explain Aphrodite's marriage to Hephaestus. In the most famous story, Zeus hastily married Aphrodite to Hephaestus in order to prevent the other gods from fighting over her.
Aphrodite is almost always accompanied by Eros , the god of lust and sexual desire. The fertility god Priapus was usually considered to be Aphrodite's son by Dionysus ,   but he was sometimes also described as her son by Hermes, Adonis, or even Zeus. The First Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite Hymn 5 , which was probably composed sometime in the mid-seventh century BC,  describes how Zeus once became annoyed with Aphrodite for causing deities to fall in love with mortals,  so he caused her to fall in love with Anchises , a handsome mortal shepherd who lived in the foothills beneath Mount Ida near the city of Troy.
Aphrodite, however, lies and tells him that she is not a goddess,  but the daughter of one of the noble families of Phrygia. After the lovemaking is complete, Aphrodite reveals her true divine form.
The myth of Aphrodite and Adonis is probably derived from the ancient Sumerian legend of Inanna and Dumuzid. Aphrodite found the baby,  and took him to the underworld to be fostered by Persephone. In different versions of the story, the boar was either sent by Ares, who was jealous that Aphrodite was spending so much time with Adonis,  or by Artemis, who wanted revenge against Aphrodite for having killed her devoted follower Hippolytus.
The myth of Adonis is associated with the festival of the Adonia , which was celebrated by Greek women every year in midsummer. In Hesiod's Works and Days , Zeus orders Aphrodite to make Pandora , the first woman, physically beautiful and sexually attractive,  so that she may become "an evil men will love to embrace".
According to one myth, Aphrodite aided Hippomenes ,   a noble youth who wished to marry Atalanta , a maiden who was renowned throughout the land for her beauty,   but who refused to marry any man unless he could outrun her in a footrace. The myth of Pygmalion is first mentioned by the third-century BC Greek writer Philostephanus of Cyrene ,   but is first recounted in detail in Ovid's Metamorphoses.
Aphrodite generously rewarded those who honored her, but also punished those who disrespected her, often quite brutally.
In Euripides 's tragedy Hippolytus , which was first performed at the City Dionysia in BC, Theseus's son Hippolytus worships only Artemis , the goddess of virginity, and refuses to engage in any form of sexual contact. Glaucus of Corinth angered Aphrodite by refusing to let his horses for chariot racing mate, since doing so would hinder their speed. Aphrodite cursed her, causing her to have children by a bear.
The resulting offspring, Agrius and Oreius, were wild cannibals who incurred the hatred of Zeus. Ultimately, he transformed all the members of the family into birds of ill omen.
The myth of the Judgement of Paris is mentioned briefly in the Iliad ,  but is described in depth in an epitome of the Cypria , a lost poem of the Epic Cycle ,  which records that all the gods and goddesses as well as various mortals were invited to the marriage of Peleus and Thetis the eventual parents of Achilles.
The goddesses chose to place the matter before Zeus, who, not wanting to favor one of the goddesses, put the choice into the hands of Paris, a Trojan prince. All three goddesses were ideally beautiful and Paris could not decide between them, so they resorted to bribes. Aphrodite plays an important and active role throughout the entirety of Homer's Iliad.
Aphrodite's most prominent avian symbol was the dove,  which was originally an important symbol of her Near Eastern precursor Inanna-Ishtar. Because of her connections to the sea, Aphrodite was associated with a number of different types of water fowl ,  including swans, geese, and ducks. A scene of Aphrodite rising from the sea appears on the back of the Ludovisi Throne c.
During the Hellenistic and Roman periods, statues depicting Aphrodite proliferated;  many of these statues were modeled at least to some extent on Praxiteles's Aphrodite of Knidos. The Ludovisi Throne possibly c. Attic white-ground red-figured kylix of Aphrodite riding a swan c. Aphrodite and Himeros , detail from a silver kantharos c. Red-figure vase painting of Aphrodite and Phaon c. Apuleian vase painting of Zeus plotting with Aphrodite to seduce Leda while Eros sits on her arm c.
Aphrodite Kallipygos "Aphrodite of the Beautiful Buttocks". Aphrodite Heyl second century BC. Greek sculpture group of Aphrodite, Eros, and Pan c. Aphrodite of Milos c. Aphrodite of Menophantos first century BC. Still, when an old girlfriend who is now the leader of an insurgent Rebel group offers him a shot at an incredible fortune, Han can't resist. The plan seems a sure thing. The resistance will be light and the take enormous.
Han and his friends will divide it equally with the Rebels. Too bad for Han that the planet of Ylesia is far from a pushover, that the Rebels have an agenda of their own, and that smuggler friends can often turn into enemies…quicker than lightspeed. He began upgrading the freighter into a highly-specialized smuggling vessel, and also makes a brief stop with Chewbacca on the Wookiee home planet of Kashyyyk , where Chewbacca married Mallatobuck. Solo and Chewbacca then embarked on a series of adventures.
He was reluctant to aid his former love, who was planning an all-out attack against the slaving colonies on Ylesia. Promised appropriate compensation, Solo, Calrissian, and Chewbacca take on the mission. In the aftermath of the battle, Tharen's troopers turned their blasters on Calrissian and the rest of Solo's friends, confiscating all valuables in the name of the Rebel Alliance. Angered, Han Solo threatens to kill Tharen if he ever saw her again.
